This tv justs eems too similar to my old one. I even read in the input lag thread where it hinted at it being very abd for it, as I did experience earlier. If i were going from a non-1080p tv to it I would be happy, but I am going from a tv almost exactly like this one.
I'll try his settings later though before I get the plasma. That way I will ahve a better idea whether or nott his is still a possibility.
The set by todays standards is a very very good set for lag. It runs about 40ms in game or graphics mode. I play MW2 Blops online I did switch to custom mode without cinemotion and motionflow off. They MUST be off for gaming. Anyway when doing this I didn't get any worse at the game. K/D is still good.
Word of advice from someone that since 04 has had to many sets
50 panny plasma (dont remember the number returned it fast
50 pioneerr elite 1020
50 sxrd xbr2
These are all top notch sets for image. I hated each and every one of them at one point. Till I got to the ex500. The ex500 is easily the best of them all overall. But If I wanted to I could hate this set too.
If you look for the negatives you'll find em. On every and all sets. If you look for the positives you'll enjoy any and all sets.
Another piece of advice is with each and every set your going to learn more and more about image quality, motion, processing etc.
Its going to get easier and easier to hate a set and harder and harder to love one.
For example your own original set was great for years around 5 or 6 if I remember when the v2500 was out. Now a similar same set with incredibly better black level doesnt seem to do it for you. Also of note is the size thing. When going big you WILL see more defects in image and lose sharpness. A 60 is going to look soft next to a 55 and 46 is going to look soft next to a 40. Turning up the sharpness doesnt fix that.
