There's definitely input lag if the tv is set to anything other than Game mode. I played around with different settings on Dirt 3. Granted, I'm beaming my signal over WHDMI, but WHDMI really is in the 1ms range, which is incredibly low. With the TV in standard mode, it "feels" like there's about 15-20ms of lag, perhaps more. I'm using experience with ASIO audio input as a point of reference. This is most noticeable in the menus, where moving up or down in the options is fairly snappy on a monitor. When racing, I found that I was over-controlling due to lag and it had a pretty negative impact on the whole experience.
In game mode, things felt much snappier and I had no issues with the control.
So I would say that you would definitely want to be in game mode for any type of game that requires responsive controls. I'd love to see an actual measurement of the lag between the different modes.
Regarding the sound bar...it functions great, the auto-power feature is nice, but I'm having a hard time getting any decent response from the sub-woofer. Perhaps I'm not running it loud enough to hit the sweet spot. The audio has been lacking "oompf" so far.
