Sub 1 frame HDTV/Monitor Input Lag Database

SaveFightingSaveFighting Games & Pussy..CatsJoined: Posts: 369
Purpose: To index input lag (average) results from various HDTVs and monitors that have sub 1 frame (16.66ms) of lag when compared to a CRT TV or Monitor.

Sources:

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk - Test LCD monitors for input lag compared to a CRT monitor.

http://www.prad.de - Test input lag using an oscilloscope.

http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk - Test the latest HDTV's for input lag compared to a CRT display. (Which they started doing from April 2010)

The New Definitive HDTV Lag FAQ - Been through 55 pages (Will complete looking through the thread in the coming days) or so and will add the monitors or HDTVs that lag less than 1 frame compared to CRT. http://shoryuken.com/forum/index.php?threads/the-new-definitive-hdtv-lag-faq.55593/

Testing Methods:


Please refer to TFTCentral's article on testing methods.

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/input_lag.htm

Preferred Testing Program / Hardware:

SMTT v2.0 or Oscilloscope.

http://smtt.thomasthiemann.com/index_en.html (SMTT Homepage)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscilloscope (Info on Oscilloscopes.)

How you can help: If you find that I have missed a HDTV or Monitor that has sub 1frame (average) of lag compared to a CRT please link to the test and results. If everything checks out it will be added to the list.

User Reviewed HDTV's:

An area for user reviews of HDTV's that don't have hard results, however according to the poster "feels" to have low input lag. This section was added due to the very limited number of HDTV reviews that actually test for input lag. So, these HDTV's listed might be worth trying out at a store for yourself.

    Hi, sadly that is due to hdtvtest being located in the U.K using the U.K Panasonic & Samsung model number. The model numbers tested which had sub 1 frame lag were the older 20 series which has been superseded by the 30 series worldwide.

    However, if we take the result for the newer TX-P42ST30B which had 16ms lag the corresponding model in the U.S is the TC-P42ST30, so simply when you want to google the model number you should disregard the TX and the B at the end.

    Also, hdtv test have reviewed the other newer 30 series of Panasonic plasma displays but they did not make the list since they had over a frame of input lag.

    (Note: The Samsung series in the U.S use LA32C530 and not LE32C530)

    I'll add the U.S model number if I find 'em to the list. (Sadly a lot of these HDTVs have been superseded)

    I'm not really that knowledgable when it comes to this stuff... I'm using a Toshiba Regza 32R1 model, and there's a game mode that I use when I play games, from the official site it states that for

    1080p - approximately 2.5ms lag
    720p - approximately 2.7ms lag
    480p - approximately 3.1ms lag

    So I assume thats good, right?

    Well that seems to be new Japanese model. However, without them providing how they tested this we simply can not take the results at face value.

    Hopefully, they release this worldwide so people can compare to a CRT and report back. 2.5ms of input lag (@1080p) would really be out of this world. :P

    Both points are correct.

    Went through about 60 pages (from last post back) of the "The New Definitive HDTV Lag FAQ" and added the following displays that hit the sub 1frame mark and were tested against CRT display.

    ASUS VE228H (Tested by Threi)

    ASUS VH236H (Tested by Cicada)

    Panasonic TC-L32X1 (Tested by Cicada)

    Will go through the rest of the thread next few days.
    Both points are correct.

    Could you tell me, what does "2D to 3D conversion mode only" mean?

    This is feature of the Panasonic 3DTV's that convert the image from 2D to 3D hdtvtest found that had the lowest input lag. However, in normal 2D viewing the input lag was much worse and easily over 1 frame, so please keep this in mind.

    Also, JCool 1 frame (60fps video source) is 16.66666666666667ms to be exact. 1 second = 1000 milliseconds. 1000 milliseconds / 60 frames (how fast almost all fighters are locked to per second) = 16.66666666666667ms

    Not to detract, because it's awesome to have this list, but it would be nice if there was a list of known-bad displays too (clearly separated, of course). In case someone was thinking that if the old model (or European version) was good, the new model must be good too. (Or just thinking about taking a chance.)

    Keep in mind the following things:
    1. Tests using clone mode on a PC or laptop are invalid, they may not refresh each display at the exact same time, and that can give innacurate results. Best to use a VGA splitter. Also using that, it makes older CRTs work (dunno why but the CRT gets fooled into thinking it's in 1280x1024 mode with cut off pixels)

    2. You need a large sample size. The numbers shown aren't final, those are just averages of however many pics they've taken. A sample size of at least 30 or more pictures is better. When taking pics you don't get like say a 7.8ms difference on the clock, its either 0 frames, 1 frame (~16ms) or 2 frames (~32ms). Those are just averaged out.

    3. Camera shutter speed. A slow camera shutter speed makes the test results harder to read, as well as allow the display to make a transition if it hasn't yet. Use the quickest shutter speed possible on your camera. I think ghosting caused by the panel's response time may impact numbers shown as well.

    when i bought my big TV (61 inch Samsung DLP) it was open box, so i didn't really know the specs, but it was 1000 bucks from costco including the stand. I later looked up the specs and it said 16 Microsecond lag time. Is that even possible?

    I've never seen a TV that advertised its actual latency, are you sure you dont mean response time or one of those other random statistics they put on the box.

    What version of the lg ld450 is that - there are maybe 4 different panels you might be getting when purchasing the ld450 or lk450

    Hi, from reading the LG review it seems to be the S-IPS panel due to the low input lag yet the worse black levels.

    The Pooch's FAQ is worth checking out for people thinking of buying the LG.

    http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?p=19723268#post19723268

    The VA panels are known to have worse pixel response, viewing angles, ghosting and smearing so it is best to avoid them.
    For a S-IPS panel type, make sure the fourth character of the last text segment is a “W”. So for example, a 32LD450 with a full product code of “32LD450 - UA.CUSWLH” means this particular TV has a S-IPS panel type (because of the “W” character). Below is a compilation of panel types found so far with their associated fourth character...

    W = S-IPS (common)
    D = A-MVA (common)
    I = IPS Alpha (rare)
    L = ?-MVA (rare)
    Z = S-IPS

    Cheers to you for putting this together. I think the most significant detail that's missing is the input type used. VGA, HDMI, and component signals can all cause displays to lag different amounts, so it would be helpful if that were part of the data whenever possible. (Sorry, but it's true!) Regardless, this thread is baller.

    So, I just had a quick question regarding the EVO monitor and maybe someone can shed some light on my failure. So I'm looking at both of these monitors

    ASUS MS246H 6.9 MS

    ASUS VH236H 8.3 MS (Game mode)

    ___

    Common sense points to the MS2 being the superior model but the question comes to mind with game mode. What exactly is it and what is it supposed to do. In this situation, would that make the EVO monitor superior to the MS2?

    Some monitors have a "game mode" that sacrifices extensive video processing to reduce input lag.

    I have the MS246H and changing the mode only changes the color settings and not how it processes the video, but it's close to lag-free already. As far I know, it is the same case with the EVO monitor.

    Also, the Asus MS2 is a discontinued model so good luck finding a reputable site that still sells it for less than $200. The ring that it uses as a stand is not that great and really limits the monitor's vertical mounting angle, and there are no holes in the back for you to install your own mount/stand.

    Great thread, I'm about to be in the market for a new TV and this'll give me a starting point instead of just asking around in other threads. I do second the point of it being super handy to know if these were based only on certain input types though, like if the numbers are only based on VGA or if they also see the same results via HDMI on those without 'game modes'.

    How do you plan on doing that if you want to test the digital/hdmi input of the lcd/plasma, vs a crt
    they have splitters that output in dvi/vga, which may or may not work.
    The point is, however, that clone mode doesn't produce accurate results.

    It would be great if we could somehow find a unified testing methodology. There is no 100% way, but the part that makes this so hard is all the variables. Different resolutions, different types of inputs, different modes, even different panel types in the same model. Definitely a big shoutout to SaveFighting for starting this thread (seriously, that other thread has needed to be closed and restarted for at least a year and a half now).

    Dunno about input types and resolutions, but rather than a clunky 2-monitor setup, wouldn't using an LED modded controller be better? Use a camcorder and just get the controller in the same shot as the screen, and start recording. Load up some sort of testing program (maybe just Joy2Key to mouse clicks or something). The LED theoretically will have 0 latency. Run through the video frame by frame to see how much the monitor lags behind.

    I'm not sure trying to 60 frame capture the exact timing of a button press with a camera is any less clunky than using two monitors. At least with the latter the data can't really be misinterpreted.

    I think for these tests, using a reliable splitter and testing vs a CRT is the best option, averaging the result over many samples and noting anything important about the distribution. For our purposes it is best to test both 720p and 1080p; 480p wouldn't hurt either. Most of the monitor tests I see only test at the monitor's native res.

    Was it ever determined that doing a 720p test where your comparison monitor is 1080p, but showing the 720p image in dot for dot mode (not scaled) was reliable? I was going to test the panasonic l32c3 if I wasnt satisfied with the l32u3, but my only monitor I can use to compare right now with the proper splitting method is a vh236h

    edit: shit, this doesnt even have a dot by dot mode.

    I assume the numbers on the tv/monitors are an average? Im about to return a tv I got as a gift so now I guess Im in the hunt for a low input lag tv as a replacement.
    Two of the tv's in the OP are in this video, Samsung LE32C530 and the LG 32LD450.


    edit: oops re-read the OP. Sorry I missed where it says its averaged.

    Are there lag results for the vh236h at 720p? I need a number for comparison tomorrow when I test the l32c3

    A quick test I did vs a CRT suggested that it lags just over 1 frame at that resolution. (Clone mode, Asus on DVI, CRT on VGA, all snapshots displayed either a 1 or 2 frame difference.) Dunno if that's thorough enough for your needs.

    I'm going to buy the Asus Vh236H monitor. Will using HDMI or VGA make a difference as far as input lag is concerned ?
