I'll start by saying this TV will be used 95% for ps4 and maybe 5% for TV. I recently purchased a Samsung UN40F6300 for 688$ at best buy.


It is a 120hz with 240 CMR and has an input lag around 46ms... I got it home and setup and I do admit it looks nice.


However I've heard/read that the UN40EH5300 with 60hz and 120 CMR has input lag of 26ms may actually be a better choice for my ps4.


Can anyone Chime in with any advice? I have 28 days to decide if I'm keeping the 6300 or going to something better.


Thanks!

I also currently have been playing on a Samsung syncmaster 2333hd which is 75hz and has an input lag between 0-20...


I wanted a bigger TV but it seems the one I had is very good for gaming and I didn't even know that..

I have the UN40EH5300, and it performers great for gaming. It also calibrates quite nicely too. I set mine to PC mode and get even lower input lag than Game mode. You do lose color and tint adjustments in PC mode, but even without them it calibrates just fine.

Do you have a next gen console?


I'm on the fence. I can return this TV with the 1 year samsung warranty and get 730$ then purchase the 5300 for 625 from Costco and they extend Samsung's warranty by 2 years to a total of 3 years.


Just not sure if the 100$ is worth it to lose the 120hz/240cmr and gain 2 years warranty.

Yes, I have a PS4 and I'll also have an Xbox One, later next week.

I wouldn't worry too much about the 120hrz, or CMR. I never game with CMR active, it only creates artifacts and more input lag.

So if the TV is strictly and almost exclusively For ps4 would you recommend the downgrade + the extra warranty for $100 in my pocket.

That's all your call. I can just verify that it's a great tv for gaming.

Still can't decide if this Samsung 40-6300 is the right TV for my needs.. Leaning towards a return and maybe trying the Sony W700B
