Cnet scored the Samsung 8500 with 53.1ms with the Leo Bagner lag tester. The 5500
& 5300 for some odd ball reason haven't been tested yet. Then there's the low end 720p model...If anybody actually cares.
I have a feeling they won't beable to match the S60's 34ms.
Anyways, I've decided that i'm officially getting the 55" S60, screw the ABL and i'll just learn to deal with the 34ms of lag. No set is perfect(well, unless you're OLED. wink*) and i need to learn to stop being so ridiculously picky otherwise i won't buy anything. hell, i haven't even unboxed my Wii U yet since i've been holding off on the right HDTV(the S30 aint it, as it's crippled with PQ problems, effed up gamma with zero controls, terrible pink push, red push, green push, and colors aren't saturated enough. Besides, via HDMI the S30 does 32ms, where as the S60 does 34...it's only 2ms more so the S30 is no longer the ultimate panasonic to game on unless you opt for component to get that 16ms, but the PQ doesn't look as good....it seems less colorful, softer and dimmer) and this no doubt will be it. the W900A may dish out 19ms of lag, but the motion blur will destroy my movie experiences(just like my previous two LCD's) and the black while good aren't aren't up to snuff vs the S60's.
I'll throw down my gaming impressions once i order the 55" at the end of this week!
Gonna do a comparison vs the S30 before i let it go for $600.
Heck, the 2012 X5 already smokes my S30 in brightness, plus the color gamut is a lot wider, richer and far more saturated. it was a big step up when playing the wii, to the point where i couldn't even go back my S30...it looked 'that' bad with it's dim picture and lousy bland colors, aside from having better blacks and slightly better motion.Edited by WaveBoy - 7/21/13 at 11:55pm
