I honestly haven’t been able to reproduce the HDR issues that everyone else is describing. However, I haven’t been focusing on that so it could be there but I just haven’t seen it. Instead I preformed my regression testing on the motion handling and quite frankly I was pleasantly stunned.
There have been issues with motion handling all along. At first there were issues where the settings would stick or would change when you switched from one input to another and back again. Those issues were resolved quickly though.
Then the only way to truly get amazing motion handling with the best input lag was to use HDMI 5 with GLL and clear action turned on. This gave you excellent motion handling but it also introduced the annoying flicker especially with mostly white web pages.
When I tried the most recent Beta firmware yesterday I was pleasantly surprised that the issues I had seen before with 1080p @ 120 FPS were all resolved. Now you can turn clear action on and not get any flickering. In addition what appears to have changed in this release is that with 1080p @ 120 FPS specifically it appears that the input lag with GLL turned “OFF” appears to be very usable.
There is still a difference in input lag between turning GLL on and off with 1080p @ 120 FPS on HDMI 5. However, now that difference appears to be small enough so that you can achieve absolute perfect motion handling with very reasonable input lag.
I didn’t have the ability to measure input lag numerically. However, I really would like to see RTINGS.com test the input lag in 1080p @ 120 FPS mode with GLL on and off.
RTINGS.com has always completely ignored 1080p @ 120 FPS. Samsung displays get an absolute pass for not having it. In addition Sony TVs get credit for having it even though RTINGS.com has said it is broken in the past.
Honestly, RTINGS.com is doing their readers a disservice by ignoring 1080p @ 120 FPS. It is the single best way to play video games. It doesn’t take a monster computer to run 1080p @ 120 FPS like it does with 4K @ 60 FPS.
I really hope that someone from RTINGS.com reads this and responds to it by doing additional testing for input lag at 120 FPS. Also I wonder if the input lag for other resolutions and frame rates has changed since they did their last test? I really think it is about time RTINGS.com gave this display a fair shot and gave it a real honest update to the review. I know they indicated in the past that they were going to do more testing to truly determine what it can and cannot do. However, I honestly do not believe that they gave it a fair shake when they retested it.
