Thank you very much for testing the input lag. I'll check back to see if you have any other results, but in general, your numbers put this TV in a coffin for me. 60ms of lag is bad for competitive fighting games. It's a shame, because everything else about this TV looks great. =(
no problem. it was a pretty interesting test. sadly, I could do nothing to get it down below 62ms. But, I just sat down and played Gran Turismo for quite awhile and it just looks plain awesome. The lag on this TV is way better than my old one (62ms vs 125ms). I was pretty bummed out when I made that post about my lag results, and considered returning it tomorrow, but I thought about it and realized that 1) there is nothing else out there even close for the money 2) this is the only nice TV with a matte screen that I could find and 3) I dealt just fine with TWICE the lag playing fallout 3, bioshock, and halo...
So i am going to just suck it up and enjoy this pretty sweet TV. I still cannot believe how inexpensive it is - it costs HALF what a sony hx909 does!
i wish the menu interface was a little slicker and i wish the remote was a little less blocky (and backlit), but you cannot complain for an otherwise solid offering. The VIA internet apps are great too - again, just wish they'd worked on the polish a little. But they definitely spent time on the PQ and it blows my old TV away.
my understanding is that the sharp TVs have lower input lag and I would have considered a 920, but they are JUST now coming out (so who knows how long before you can actually get one), cost almost 1,000 more than this TV, and don't have full array local dimming...
