Samsung HU8500 response time
« on: 05 December 2014, 09:20:01 PM »

Hi guys,

I very close to buying a Samsung HU8500 55" TV but as I wish to use this TV for games I really need to check that the response time isn't too bad.

In the review, it was measured that the response was 73ms. Poor for gaming.
http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/ue55hu8500-201404163710.htm

However, the review of the 8200 came in at 41 ms with the statement ( I know its not the same TV ;) )
"The HU8200 returned lower input lag than the Samsung HU8500 and HU7500, which we think is helped by an updated firmware (version 2122 at time of publication)"
http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/ue55hu8200-201406123803.htm

The 8500 was only reviewed at version 1100.

And then there was this review which measure the response as 45ms.  Far better.

Can anyone shed any light on this?  Has there been a firmware update that has improved response time?

If any one has a set and leo bodnar device, would they been kind enough to re-measure for me :)

Thanks a lot.
Andy

Hi Andy

Welcome to the forum.

Yes, input lag on the HU8500 is now down to 40+ms as per Leo Bodnar on the latest firmware. I was going to post an article on it, but just been so busy! :rofl:

Warmest regards
Vincent
