I've said it before, I've played a few titles on it haven't really noticed a significant input lag, it's possible any present would affect twitch shooters and what not, but other than that it's pretty solid. My system information shows TV version of 1.0.12, which is rather interesting it appears your version is newer than mine somehow.
Either way enjoy the TV it really is a great looking set for it's price. After you do some more testing with it, I'd look forward to hearing more impressions of the set's quality as well as input lag.
Messed around with it some more. In Game Mode in particular the response really does feel snappy enough, but even outside of it I have to admit it still isn't really noticeable for non-twitch games at least. Though I do still want to get some numbers, and will post if I do.
That's comforting that you've noted the Wii U gamepad sound delay on other sets. Yeah I considered messing with the Lip Sync setting (I assume that's what you're talking about as far as advancing/delaying audio timing is concerned), but then that would adjust it relative to the TV video as well, which isn't really what I'm after. But maybe advancing it just a tad would be a compromise, if it matters. Admittedly other than when that annoying robot is talking in Nintendo Land, I never notice.
My verdict so far is that I'm absurdly satisfied with it, and moreover quite pleased I got the E65 and not the E60. I'm sure the E60's a great set too, but I like that the E65 includes improved image processing options in addition to its increased (and for me, perfect) size. Especially given that if I don't want those image processing features, I can disable them via Game Mode or similar adjustments and get performance more like the E60.
As a rule I'd prefer a "dumb" TV that decouples content acquisition from display, but I must say I'm also pleasantly surprised by the interface's responsiveness and the simple quality of the apps. In particular, the bonus of being able to cast Youtube and Netflix content directly to the TV from my mobile devices as if it were a Chromecast is a fantastic and unexpected addition.
(I assume your firmware will update soon?)
