Input lag and JVC DLA

I'm a huge gamer thinking about getting a JVC projector. My friend has the X35 and when I brought over and played the 360 on it, the input lag was HORRIFIC.

I was considering the X700 and from what I've read, the input lag is just as bad or even worse on the newer JVCs. Is that true?

Input lag actually got worse this year if I remember correctly. This is an area JVC does not care about unfortunately or maybe nothing can be done for some reason? Would be nice for that to change one of these years. If your a serious gamer though, JVC is a no go.

Iirc the X35 was measured around 80ms and the new generation machines are 125ms.

If so, that turrible. I guess I'll look at Sony or Panasonic (Epson isn't known for great button response either).

It's very turrible. Check out Sony's line-up. They seem to use more efficient processing which results in lower input lag time. Most units have a dedicated gaming mode that's around 25ms of input lag.

Are there no 2014 JVC's worthy of Gaming?

I did not know it was that bad it was simply not worth gaming on them...

Very turrible?

A better description would be that it is really quite slow compared to much of its competition. How slow is it? Its so slow that the game is often over before you have a chance to have an effective response.


A classic example of a compromise in design to favor certain things at the cost of adversely affecting others.

I can at least confirm the first half of this statement. I measured right around 80ms on my x35. I find it completely playable for most games though. the ones I have the most issue with are Kinect games, and well, standing up in front of the screen kind of ruins those anyway, haha. obviously your sensitivity/skill and type of games will play a big role in this. I play FPS all the time with no issues, but I'm also the guy that ends up with a 1/15 K/D ratio if I play online.


the lack of any type of 'game mode' really kills it for the jvc's. it'd be nice to at least have the choice to 'ruin' the image a bit in order to drop down to under 40ms of lag. I do that with my F8500, which has about 120ms normally. it's a decent hit in PQ, but for gaming it's worth it.


anyway, you may be better off looking at the sony hw55. I believe it has more reasonable lag times. or you could also budget in a second projector JUST for fast gaming. I think the 1070 is under 20ms. that only really makes sense if you'll do a lot of movie watching to justify the jvc in the first place though. for a pure gaming projector, I'd be curious what kind of input lag something like the cine 1000 has. hard to argue with that kind of picture quality AND an LED light source if the lag is reasonable
