3D HDTV good for gaming? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Input lag is a really bad argument in my opinnion, ive been using my tv as my 42" 1080p monitor for ages and its brilliant, no issues at all (except I have to be carefull with burn in etc.....)

Edit: its also totally pointless having 1080p or greater resolution on anyless than roughly a 32" screen, your eyes cant see the extra detail, its only on larger screens when you get the real benefit and its actually important. Ive read into this while researching what tv to buy on many tv review sites

Before this I had a 32" Sony V Series TV. I could clearly notice a significant amount of input lag on it.

But on this TV I don't really notice it. Maybe there is a very small amount of input lag that I can't really put my finger on...I don't know..

Chances are that the input lag is so small that you have gotten used to it.
Try this : play some twitch action FPS on a computer monitor. then play it on a TV. You will most likely notice something weird, something that doesn't feel right. It doesn't make the game unplayable but its there..

All that said, I'm not denying that your tv doesn't have input lag, but its more likely to have a small hard to notice lag than no lag.

Yea, I have gone thru a few sets that when i went to watch a movie, the mouse lag was almost unbearable. My latest Vizio at 60hz isn't bad, but I can definitely feel it compared to my samsung 2233rz.

I've always been sort of sensitive to the input lag, which has always been that "not quite right" feel i've associated with running a PC on an HDTV. Each set is VERY different, so im not saying its an issue across the boards, but its far more prevalent in HDTVs than it is with PC displays.

Pixel pitch even on a 32" HDTV @ 1080p would drive me nuts on my old samsung if I was closer than 6 feet. I personally find anything over 24" to be a complete nuisance. If i cant pick out things in a FPS game on the corners of the screens while im looking at my xhair, the display is too big, which was the case w/ my 28" hannspree.
