I own the 42" LK450 and i owned the previous LD450, and they perform identicle regading input lag and both sets
are basically a gamers dream. Through component in 480p i'm betting it's 16ms, however on the PS3 via HDMI in 1080p
it feels like the input lag doubles...Component may yield different results however, but i've tested component out on my PS3 with this particular set.
The problem is, the LK450 never went past 46" and the black levels on this set are pretty mediocre...
Brightness is ridiculously amazing and the color gamut/advanced controls are absolutely fantastic. The LK450 doesn't do so well with 'darker'
games considering the black levels are less than ideal....This set just meshes better with games that are super bright and colorful
like Super Mario Galaxy, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Zelda:Skyward Sword rather than Resident Evil 4, Bioshock and what have you.
I'm guessing there are no 50" 60hz 2012 LCD's that do below 20ms this year? I can't take this input lag epidemic anymore. XP
For us gamers, it completey botches and narrows down our HDTV choice to like 5% of what's currently 'new' and out there. Sometimes i feel like throwing in the towel
and going back to a 32" Full screen tube SDTV. But then i'd be absolutely missing out on the Wii U's 720p, hdmi and true widescreen + the big screen...
Anyways, if you don't mind ho-hum black levels than i'd recommend seeking down a 46" LK450. Keep in mind Component may perform better than
HDMI on the PS3, as it did on the Wii. I did comparisons between Mega Man 9 on both consoles, and the Wii version performed better
