I know I have asked this about 3-4 pages ago. But still haven't heard any comments on it. My game to movie ratio is about 50/50, so it's a big deal. So I tried calibration again on my DLP HD70 720p with the PS3 via HDMI at 720p using Guitar Hero World Tour and the guitar. I don't know what settings I am using on the HD70 right now, but I do know it doesn't have a "fast" mode. I am not the greatest Guitar Hero player and my calibration ranged from about 30-36ms for video over about 3 tries.
So it's nice to hear that with Fast mode turned on with the AE4000, that it appears to keep up.
But rhythm games seem to all have calibration to account for lag. But the real test is non-rhythm games like FPS games where lag means death and as far as I have seen, those games can't be calibrated for input to display lag.
Any FPS gamers have the AE3000 or AE4000 that used to have DLP? If so, can you tell me your thoughts? I know there are tons of threads talking about DLP vs LCD gaming lag, but I haven't read any good ones lately. Generally DLP seems to get better comments in this area.
Since I am planning on moving from DLP to LCD specifically because of the AE4000, I am curious about 2 specific things in gaming.
1. Input to Display lag. This causes death. Especially since I am already not that great at FPS games. But I enjoy them.
2. Motion blur/artifacts. This counts for movies as well. But with games, the motion can be very fast, very high contrast, and often high motion much of the time. And for movies like fast action & sports movies.
I have been extremely happy with my 720p HD70 DLP projector for 3 years for both of these aspects. But I am not happy with the black level. And now I want to go to 1080p. I thought about the HD20, but side by side with the AE4000, the blacks on the HD20 look like my HD70. Which is not terrible, but not great either. I would rather have the blacks of the AE4000.
Hopefully I can get some great comments and links about the above 2 items. While many LCD projector owners might be happy about gaming on the AE4000 as a step up in their personal LCD projector history, I don't want to be unhappy about moving to LCD from DLP due to lag or motion blur. This isn't to bring up the pros and cons of LCD vs DLP. But just the 2 aspects that are important to me right now before I buy.
