For example, if I'm trying to hit a far-away enemy in an FPS, the aiming delay makes it hard to center the reticle on the enemy. I never had problems like this on my old CRT. What I want to know is if I'll notice an improvement with the UT50, and how significant the difference would be. Also, how does the UT50's input lag measure up with a CRT's input lag - can you tell the difference. Thanks a bunch guys.
I haven't personally toyed around with the UT yet, but i can't imagine the UT performing any better in the input lag department in comparison to the U. Usually the bottom line sets that do less processing fare better with input lag.
And don't ever listen to somebody that's basically raving about their set and saying that they don't notice any lag, because it's pure BS. ALL HDTV's have input lag, small or large it's there regardless.16ms is the lowest it goes and panasonic are typically the ones to deliver in that range. I'm used to gaming
on a CRT as well, and i'm very very picky when it comes to this entire lag HDTV ordeal. I'd love to see some pro lag tests....The ST50 apperantly isn't too hot, ranging in the 30-40ms range. That doesn't cut it 'at all' for me....Why does gaming
on an HDTV have to be such a pain in the ass? Why can't somebody just invent a device that gets rid of it all?
My bet is that the lower end Panasonic 720p X5 performs the best....But whocares when the resolution is 1024x766...it won't resolve true 720p properly for Wii U games....For Bluray/dvd content on the other hand that fixed resolution is good enough for me.
But for most of the people on here, not a chance hehe.
