Sub 1 frame HDTV/Monitor Input Lag Database


#1

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. The New Definitive HDTV Lag FAQ

**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.

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.

Nice resource, I think that it’d be valuable to list the sizes of the displays as well.


#4

Nice list. But I can’t help but state the fact that a lot of the HDTV’s in the list are only available in Europe? I googled them and I only get EU sites


#5

Updated list with sizes.

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 The model numbers tested which had sub 1 frame lag were the older 20 series which has been superseded by the 30 series worldwide.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)


#6

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?


#7

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. :stuck_out_tongue:


#8

ah okay… i guess after a year+ its still not released outside of japan… i was just about to consider sellin it to a friend before i leave the country, i guess im bringing it home then lol


#9

ummm. Always looked for a guide like this on TV/monitors, so yeah this topic is S tier.


#10

I like this.
Been wanting a 1920x1200 monitor.


#11

Isn’t a frame 16 2/3 ms?
Does this mean all of these tvs are solid for SF?


#12

Both points are correct.

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


#13

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.

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


#14

16 and 2/3 is the same as 16.666666666666667 ms
but thanks for reconfirming. now i’m on the hunt for a new tv. thanks for the thread gents. keep it up.


#15

It’s just 16.666 ms; repeating, of course.


#16

How did you come to that? When I calculate it the value always returns 16.666666666666667.


#17

yeah thanks a bunch for making this the other thread had none of the good tvs/monitors on frontpage and the other thread was VERY unorganized.


#18

2/3 =/= .666666666667 no mater what calculators say


#19

Very nice. If possible, I think the test summaries in the OP should specify which connections were used when that information is provided (HDMI, component, VGA, etc).


#20

LG 32LD450 - 16ms input lag (Game picture mode) 32" 1080p

All the sizes have the same lag. I myself have the 47. And only one panel type (I forget which but I know it’s not MVA) are confirmed.
