Any gamers here want to chime in?
To also chime in:
Been gaming on it no problem since I got it in october last year.
I play very seriously in online FPS like Halo 5, R6 and Destiny.
Has not been hurting my KD due to any possible increase in input lag. Still wrek kids just as hard as I did on my previous set (which was in the mid 30's ms input lag). Including in fast-paced twitch style game-types like Swat in Halo.
Been playin the division and it looks and plays great.
I dunno how it'd fare for games like Killer Instinct/Mortal Kombat.
Would I like to know for a fact in the back of my mind that number was lower? Sure, but as it is I've only noticed it with timed button presses in Tomb Raider, but I've never tried that game on a different set to know what it would be like otherwise.
I had to put the set on Game Mode, and set it to PC and also make sure HDMI port was labeled PC - otherwise the delay is noticeable.
I'm using HDMI 1 and as Buzz's results found, that one had lower input lag across the board, so beyond a meter issue, I hedged my bets and use that directly to my Xbox and have sound out via optical from Xbox to receiver.
First few days playing with it I couldn't get over how good it look compared to my previous set (Samsung Plasma).
Colors explode off the screen and 3D models have added depth due to the ability to display true black.
Now I just need to upgrade my PC so I can play games @ native 4K.
