I recently just replaced the DLP chip, and it seems to be chugging along still. However, I was looking at possibly replacing it in the next year or so anyway. The only thing that concerns me about modern TVs is input lag in games. I use it mostly for gaming, and I play mostly fast paced action/head-to-head games like fighters.

Has anyone ever seen input lag numbers for this set in game mode?

I'm trying to get an idea of what sort of lag I'm used to on this set.

Could the replacement DLP chip make a difference as well?

Input lag for a typical LCD TV is 8 - 50 milliseconds, depending on the preset. The DLP is far faster, at 8 - 50 microseconds, and game mode should typically give you the fastest response time.

I never had noticeable lag on mine. I usually used game mode, but sometimes I forgot. Mostly played Battlefield and Madden.

Woah, really? I always figured it had 15 ms or so in game mode. I never really had noticable lag, though. I just thought it was under what I could detect. Is there any documentation of the lag numbers from testing anywhere? I'm just curious to see them. I'm surprised this isn't more well-known if true. Sorry if I sound skeptical, but it almost seems too good to be true. That plus the color I get with it makes me want to hang onto it for a lot longer.

I am going from memory here, as my HLT 5089S is long gone, but I do remember the input lag being in micro seconds, not milliseconds. Now that may be for the DLP chip itself, and the onboard processing may slow it up a bit, but I can say that with 3D there was absolutely no ghosting whatsoever, and with my PN 60F8500 there is very visible ghosting, especially in dark scenes, like Tron. The DLP easily bested the plasma in that department.
