I recently purchased a 2014 vizio e series and im thinking of returning it due to dead pixels. My question is, what would be a good alternative around 1000 bucks for a 55 inch ( i could go plus or minus 5") ? I would prefer something that doesn't have terrible input lag or ghosting . I was thinking Samsung f 6300 or the new Panasonic AS530 . Any thoughts?

My F6300 has a single dead green pixel. Not sure what your allowable no. of dead pixels is, most tv's have a couple. The TV is great otherwise.

Well, if you are looking for a inexpensive tv, that games with low input lag, and no ghosting that I could see. The Magnavox 46" is $429 at Sam's Club could do. It's a Direct-Lit LED tv, model 46ME313V/F7. I own one myself. It gamed no lag for me. The blacks are good, but because it doesn't have local dimming, you lose black detail. But most games are pretty bright, and it shouldn't be a problem there. Over all, for the price, it's a good deal IMO. I sit about 3 feet from mine, and it looks good. It also has good off angles.


The 50" and 60" E Series Vizio will be out in store very soon, and the M series in about 6 weeks, but that's just a rumor.


60" 16 active zones 4ms screen $899.


50" 12 active zones $649 maybe $600.

Local dimming does not improve shadow detail. If you can not see shadow detail well, you have settings adjusted wrong. Also, the 4ms you quoted is response time, not input lag.

If you could stretch your budget, it would be worth saving until you could afford the w900a. You would be getting the best gaming tv currently produced. If not that, then the w802a would be another one to look at.

I know 4ms is response time. He wanted a tv with no ghosting. 4ms should cover that just fine, also the 60" has the fastest reponse time out of all the E series so far. Plus the new E series appears to not have a input lag problem. So, gaming should be fine. Plus if you want to go cheap, the 46" Magnavox is fine for gaming as well.
