I got a Leo Bodnar input lag tester recently and went rampant at a local retailer. Among others, I tested the 55" W807AS (I think it's a Scandinavian version of the series), and got around 16ms, which matches what CNET lists in their "game mode on" article. I also tested a 42" in the W6 series and got a lag score so low I started to worry about the lag tester, around 6-7ms. It gives fairly consistent results for the other TVs I have tested (and same as other sources, in the case of W8), though, so even if 6-7 isn't perfectly correct, the lag is sure to be low.
(ADDED: This was with both sets in game mode [Scene set to Game]. The W807 had 115ms lag in non-game mode, in case anyone wonders.)
For comparison, the mid-range Samsungs and Panasonics I tested were around 40ms. Samsung usually below 40 and Panasonic above.
I'm thinking of getting either a W6 or W8, mainly for gaming. Does anyone have observations regarding their differences in picture quality and motion? I.e. is W8 much better? It's kind of stretching my budget.
Also, does anyone know the difference(s) between W802A, W805A, W807AS, etc? I'm quite new to his and want to know I'm actually reading about the correct panel and stuff when the model number differs.Edited by hiptanaka - 6/19/13 at 4:22am
