I doubt if it's more than 25ms. EDIT: Actually 31ms according to hdtvtest. That's acceptable for me. If I was a professional PC FPS player it wouldn't be acceptable (and I wouldn't be using a 64" display anyway) but for all other types of gaming it's pretty much perfect.
The input lag according to HDTV Test for my T.V (LG 60PK950, from 2010) is 51ms.
I play a lot of COD (in fact it is the only game I have plyed in months). Not trying toot my own horn here, but I routinely kick butt...I play Free For All mainly and I consistenly win if not place in the top 3 in almost every game played.
My Xbox 360 is plugged in to my receiver, then then the receiver to the T.V, and I use a wireLESS controller. Undoubtedly these 2 factors introduce some additional input latency (albeit minimal). That said, I am desperately trying to understand how someone can say that anything more than 2 frames (30ms), is average or bad input lag? I seem to do just fine in every game I play (I play racing games also on occasion)...so is it that the people I am playing against are just not that good (unlikely), or is this whole Input Lag thing being a little blown out of proportion? I would be shocked, amazed, impressed...and confused - if anyone could tell the difference between 30ms and 50ms...we are talkiing about 20ms here, which is so fast that no one in the world can react quickly enough to benfit from it.
In the end I would of course prefer a display with less lag than more lag...but IMHO, I think that any display getting readings under 50ms is MORE than adequate for most gamers...the proof is in the putting.
