Do you think in game mode the tv is going to lag so bad that game play will suffer for younger players that are not tv savy?
Im thinking of going with the lg 5560 that costco has a big rebate on now,$1100 for it and it comes with a 22 inch lcd also.cheapest I can find the 8600 is still on amazon for 1400 used. Did you get your second one you ordered from them yet? Let me know how that turns out.
Bought it for my parents. It is being delivered this week.
I forgot to mention this about lag:
I have found Ghost Recon virtually impossible to play online. The lag is so bad, I can offer no competition. I can however, suffer through while playing the campaign, solo.
I have found that COD MW3 Is much less laggy and I am still competitive while playing online.
Batman:Arkham Asylum is a single-player game.....It's so bad I can't even play it.
A good theory exists:
The less bells and whistles that a tv has, the less input lag there will be, as there is less processing going on. I don't know this to be true. It sounds good, but here are a couple things to make me think it might not be so true. The LM8600 has a dual core processor and it is still bad. The LM8600 also has "PC" and "Game" modes, which supposedly eliminate much processing(I believe this to be true because the lag seems to be worse if I use different modes), however, as I said.....I still find the lag excruciatingly painful.
Kids might not notice unless they are avid gamers. They might adapt.....they might just think they are not good at video gaming.
