In game mode with all settings disabled it was 45.9ms (42.3ms top, 45.9ms middle, 49.7ms bottom). Definitely an improvement across the board from the EA9800 (aside for perhaps more aggressive ABL, and some variance/flicker with that).
Had the input lag matched my XBR8 I would have purchased the set.
Thanks for the test.
Did you disable these settings? - aren't auto disabled using Game Mode:
1- Software Update setting set to Off, this setting is inside Customer Support Menu - big input lag reduction
2- Daylight Saving Off - have to test this
3- Magic Remote's Alignment setting Off - big input lag reduction
4- Clear Voice set to 0 then deactivate it - have to test this
5- Turn off tv speakers - big input lag reduction
6- Game Mode with PC Input Label - big input lag reduction
Also a bonus tip:
ISF Modes, Cinema Mode, etc have xvYCC Enabled and grayed out. I think this xvYCC setting set to Enabled increases input lag greatly. I found a way to have this setting selectable so you can set it to Off - no longer grayed out:
1- Buy a Mastered in 4K BluRay movie and look in the back of the box for xvYCC support. I bought GhostBusters Mastered in 4K BluRay movie.
2- I used a PlayStation3 videogame console. You have to enable Deep Color in the PS3's settings.
3- Turn On Real Cinema in your LG tv.
4- Reproduce the movie in your PS3, once inside the movie, go to your Advanced Menu in your LG tv and you will notice the xvYCC setting is no longer grayed out. Turn it off.
5- Gamers that love the best PQ found in ISF, Cinema Modes, etc Might be able to enjoy these high PQ video modes with reduced input lag thanks to xvYCC disabled.
