best gaming tv

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So what TV for gaming.

1st off LED or Plasma?

I have learnt so far that LED are really 60hz, but fake 100hz so am kinda wary, but plasma you have burn in issues.

I just want to play games without vsync & least amount of lag.

Had my heart set on a LG 47LD450 till I read the issues people have trying to game with it (input lag they call it??)

Its all very confusing.

the LG 47LD450 has a 4ms Response time so that would be OK for gaming

I never noticed that Joey ty.

It seems such a great TV & very reasonably priced in the UK. Just apparently 3d gaming sucks bigtime. Not that ive ever tried 3d gaming anyway & am not that bothered.

Would be awesome enough to be able to play on a 47" without vsync enabled.

Don't do it. HDTV's are not designed for gaming, you WILL get input lag regardless of fps, v-sync, TV refresh rate or latenency. Its just how HDTV's are designed to output picture quality.

Well after going out & buying a Sony Bravia KDL40EX723 I have realized you are never going to get decent gaming on a HDTV. Maybe this an obvious for some I dont know.

The Sony Bravia I read had 21ms input lag, which is pretty good & most wont notice & was true. But is all aimed for the console gamer with low FPS.

These TV's claim to be 100hz+ refresh rate, but is all gimmickry as far as I am concerned now & if you are using as a monitor all the motion+ etc is disabled anyway. So I was getting 60hz same as my LCD.

So is still choppy without vsync enabled.

I took the tv back & stuck with my LCD lol LED's are overated. The picture is clearer yes but I wasent overly impressed.
