This causes overcompensation and a necessary lack of precision during fine movement because your brain hasn't received the visual outcome it expected to occur. Whether you can perceive this or not is irrelevant. Anyone who plays online games will be at a significant disadvantage on a JVC vs an Epson. Black levels are king for video but they don't improve contents between live human beings. That's a fact. The delay is not only perceptible to a trained gamer, it is obvious, distracting and a significant disadvantage in any competitive play. This is why pro PC gamers use monitors with sub-5ms input lag.
Don't take anyone's word for this. Take your console or HTPC to a brick and mortar store and plug it in, demo the games you enjoy, demo and decide for yourself. I find the delay to be debilitating as do many others and I'm hardly a pro gamer.
I was putting it into a way people can understand, I know the frames are not missing, but it is the equivalent of being out by about 4 frames.
As I stated in my other response above, 140ms is about 1/8 of a second, I would love to see someone who claims that input lag is an issue to try this out on a system with 30ms and one with 140 and see if they can tell a difference, because the vast majority will not.
People hear it is a bad, get on the band wagon, and then spew misinformation around based on never having tried it themselves.
I have experienced close to 2000hours of gaming since I picked up the x500r last year, and I can tell you first hand, that it is way over blown. If someone who plays as much as I do is not impacted, then about 90% of the folks out there are not going to have an issue.
Sure there may be a minority, but they will be few and far between, much like some of us are sensitive to DLP rainbows, but that does not mean the vast majority are.
You are right about one thing though, if it is a concern, take your system to a local store and ask to try it and assess for yourself.
