Santa dropped off a couple of games including COD MW3 and I have not had any problems with the tv keeping up (AMP is turned off). I can't say the same for my Wii. When playing COD MW1 online it is like I am playing in slow motion and game mode is the only cure for that.
I have had thoughts of returning this tv due to the AMP issue plus the tv washes out pretty bad when viewing from an angle (I know most LCD's do this but this one is worse that others). I have looked at other 46 inch tv's under $1000 and I really can't find one that don't have issues of their own. The picture is great and I wish AMP worked better but I will probably stick with this one.
No worries DustXking, I am only trying to help others out. Let me begin by saying that I am no expert on calibrating LCDs or Plasmas, but I do have a good eye for color as I used to work in a digital photography studio. I am not advocating that these are by any means perfect for everyone, or that they will work in all viewing environments. I encourage people to give them a try instead of using the factory settings. The settings above will lower the sets power consumption and reproduce color accurately, at least from my POV. I stated at "Movie" settings and then played with it until I cam to the above settings. I did look at a few other calibration settings to help me tweak mine until it was right for my viewing environment (at the time there were only 3-4 posted, and some were for other LNXXD630 models). Honestly I think you can start from any of the presets and eventually come to the same calibrations. As soon as you play around with them it becomes a "custom" setting although the "movie" label doesn't change. So I believe you could start an any preset and obtain the above calibrations, I just used movie because it was closest to what I ended up with, and therefore needed the smallest amount of tweaking.
I got this set on sale over the summer on Amazon for $595 with 2 day shipping and it is worth every penny. Like I posted above I have had great results with the PS3 as far a games (and of course blu rays, dvds and PSN video content too). The only game that had a minute amount of lag was Dirt 3, but it was playable. It may have been from using the Logitech Racing Wheel, because every game I have played with the Dualshock controller has been perfect. Is the Wii hooked up with an HDMI cable? That may be the culprit, these TV's are a little ahead of their time, like that episode of South Park (Go God Go 2) where Cartman can't hook his Wii into the futuristic TV
BTW I recently switched to Verizon Fios and their overall picture quality is far superior to Cox cable. Even their standard def channels are close to 720P, well depending on the source of the broadcast. I am very pleased with Verizon so far, although their DVR has taken a bit to get used to, and their cable boxes do use a bit of energy. But I would recommend Fios to anyone looking for a great cable picture, especially NFL football.
