I have been looking for 40+" LCD/LED TV for purely gaming purposes for a while now and decided to post here since my thorough studies show that this might be the best place in the world to discuss the subject. Anyway, there's a little plot twist in my search for the gaming TV: there needs to be three of them for a home simulator setup. And I'm not made of money.
I've read quite a bit about input lag and it absolutely blows my mind how little TV manufacturers care about such a feature. I can only guess that since they want us to buy ultra-expensive stuff with all the bells and whistles, they don't want us to want to turn them off. But that's exactly what I do.
Ok, so here's what I've learned so far. The LG LK450 might be good if I get the Y model. This TV is available in 42" (perfect size for me), inexpensive and I might be able to go check the model code (for the elusive Y). Is the entry level LG really as good (or not-bad) as they all say or is there something better (yet affordable) out there?
So how about the Panasonic Viera TX-L42E3E 42" Full HD LED TV (http://www.verkkokauppa.com/fi/product/16698/dbxsf/Panasonic-Viera-TX-L42E3E-42-Full-HD-LED-televisio
) or Panasonic Viera TX-L42E30E 42" 200 Hz FHD LED TV (http://www.verkkokauppa.com/fi/product/46176/dgfgv/Panasonic-Viera-TX-L42E30E-42-200-Hz-FHD-LED-televisio
)? I've heard some good things about them as well. They're LED, which is nice, since my room is warm enough and electricity bill big enough already (so plasmas are out of the question). Is the image quality better or worse than in the LG, how about lag?
Any other makes and models I should look for? You can find inspiration here, this store is fairly close and I might at least get a look at the product codes if not the actual products: http://www.verkkokauppa.com/fi/catalog/5443c/42?sort=price
It's frustrating to try to find some good data on different TV models, so any experiences or other information sources are very welcome.
As I said before, this forum / thread has probably been the most enlightening read on the subject I've managed to find so far, so thanks for that at least.
