My brother has a 55' Toshiba LED; it probably has 30-35ms of input lag according to what I found online. I remember playing with it and being able to compensate for the lag, but it was always something weighing me down. Casual playing should be fine overall.
I had the 929, but ended up returning it and am waiting for the VT50 to come out.
The lag was very noticeable on the TV. A lot of the games I played just had a sluggish feeling to them and it was noticeable that a delay was occurring. I was excited a demo came out for a game I was looking forward too and it was simply awful playing it on that TV. It just felt so sluggish and I attempted to convince myself that maybe the game just was not as good as I had hoped. Fast forward a week later, played the demo again on my Sony CRT HDTV and had a absolute blast. Everything felt fast and very responsive. The worst was playing a fighting game on the 929. The input lag was so bad, even on easy in some fighters, you would struggle because the lag made it such a struggle to counter. I have a feeling the lag goes well about 30ms on the 929. This was all on game mode too.
I'm exited for the VT50 since I know it'll naturally be great for gaming and honestly, I can't say I'm going to miss that blooming on the 929. It was a lot worse that I was hoping it would be. It actually impacted some scenes in movies quite a bit visually.
