By "noticible" I mean if I stand in front of a wall and shoot at it, when I pull the trigger there is no noticible lag.  When I do something on my controller, it happens on my TV.

I die a lot, but that could be lots of things, the people Im playing, do they have mod controllers, do they play all the time, are the playing as a team better.


The most important thing to do for BF4 is turn internet smoothing off.


With all that being said, I have fun.

Do you have to change anything to go a good image? I keep reading about "screen fit". what exactly is that?

Great Image, and no I dont have to do a bunch of tweaks because I have Xbone on separate HDMI from Fios. 

When watching TV on HDMI 1 I just switch between movie and standard,  I have tweaked those settings, lots of info on that in this forum, once done, its done.

For Gaming on HDMI 2 or 3, not sure which I have it on GAME MODE,  HDMI LOW.   Screen fit should always be used for TV , Movies, or games.  I just means 1:1, pixel for pixel, no scaling, tru HD.  If you dont you lose some of the image.

Best thing I ever did for my Broadcast viewing was go into set top box settings, turn off 1080i and enable native then check a box for all the different formats.

The scaler on your tv is way better than cable box, and that way you dont have a source doing the 720p to 1080i to 1080p scaling process, the tv does it all 720p to 1080p, and does a better job of it.

Thank you, you've been a huge help. I appreciate it.

Was the input lag ever improved in a firmware update or is it still over 60ms?

See Fierce_GT's photographs in the owner's thread. Between 30~40ms with an unknown laptop LCD as the reference. Still not ideal, but good enough for me to buy. If anyone still thinks that's unacceptable, then the H5000 with 37ms will be a better alternative.

I should clarifty, I used an Electron LCD/DVD combo display that was purchased several years ago. it's a very basic LCD.

I wanted to test which METHOD provided the best input lag results, without knowing the input lag of my lcd I really can't comment on absolute values for the f8500.

but, with game mode off, it was around 120ms. with game mode on, it dropped to 50ms, and in pc mode, it improved further to around 35ms(I didn't use a fast enough shutter speed for the PC test, so I'm guessing a bit).

anyway, at least now we know what setting to check. if it's not fast enough for you in PC mode, you'll have to buy something else
