Best 65" Tv for fighting games with the best picture quality
« on: 13 January 2015, 10:22:57 PM »

Hi guys! My nickname is Roko.  I am from Sweeden. I have been searching on the Internet for some time now, trying to find the dream Tv. I play fighting games on PS3 , PS4, X-BOX ONE and Wii U and the Tv should be good for that. The same time, my wife and me are watching movies a lot, so she wants the best picture you can get. We looked around and we came to Samsung UE65HU8505. She likes the picture and the input lag 31-41 ms....can be OK I guess!?!? There was another Samsung(UE65HU7205) that was a bit cheeper, but I can't find information on the input lag. We where looking for a flat Tv (big one), but we don't find the characteristics that we are looking for. The price is OK. Today we have Samsung 46c5100 and I have no idea what the input lag is. I play fighting games on it and it feels ok in PC mode, but I am worried to not get worse with the 65" and that curved screen to effect my games performance. Another solution is to buy some smallar Sony 42" for my games with low input lag or Gaming monitor like BenQ 27 something on a side. Or wait until the summer to see the new Tv characteristics that are on the way. I don't know what to do. Mortal Kombat X is coming in April so please help. Is the Samsung UE65HU8505 good enought or should I by A Gaming monitor or some smaller Sony like 42 " on a side?!?!? I have Samsung 46c5100 and fighting games a playable , but if it can get better, I am ready to pay good money. Thanks in advance!!!

If you want low input lag for gaming and good movie TV, then its Sony 50" KDL50w828/829 or lowest input lag Tv 42" KDL42W705/B (input lag 14ms). I will wait test results of new 2015 models before I buy anything. Only bad thing is prices are double compared to 2014  models.. Here in Finland price for KDL42W705 is 578.

Sony was the king of input-lag last year, so I suggest you have a look in HDTVtest's Input-Lag Database and filter from fast to slow. Then open a few of the reviews in new tabs and see their pros and cons :) Almost any 1080p Sony from 2014 will be good to excellent at both picture quality and input-lag, IIRC ;) (I don't think the size of the screen would affect input-lag, though 4k resolution will.)
Panasonic TX-P55VT60Y, PS4, PS3, X360, Wii, Pioneer VSX-421, Sony SS-FCR4000 5.0, Yamaha YST-FSW100.
(Panasonic TX-P50G30Y, Pioneer PDP-LX5090, Panasonic TX-P42ST60Y)

I haven't seen Sony with that picture quality like Samsung UE65HU8505. Not even close. I did buy Sony 4k 55" , but I returned it. The input lag was 41 ms and not so impressive picture quality. Price is not an issue. That Samsung has an input lag 31-41 ms. How bad that is for a fighting games......I don't really know. Does it really feels the diffriens between 31 ms input lag and 16 ms or lower for a fighting games. The same time, I am looking for WOW picture quality. I know it is difficult  to find that balance and that is why I am looking for help. Could Samsung UE65HU8505 be the answer?

Price for the KDL50W828/829 is now in Finland 899 and will still drop. The 2015 replace model will be around 1200 like 828/829 was when it was released. So if theres nothing majore improvements in the 2015 models, I wont waste my money just to get new design.

Euro is collapsing anyway by next week.

You don't have to buy a TV from Korea or Japan you know. Wait for reviews.

That is true.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurozone

If the euro next week goes through using http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantitative_easing it will devalue the euro to make it more competitive for exports. That means export of Sweden to the Euro countries will crash.

The benefit is if you import a TV made in Euro zone. Otherwise because of weak Swedish exports to euro zone you will see the value of Swedish krona drop too, so more expensive products from Asia.

I will buy my TV from a local store because I want to test it before I my make final decision. If there is something wrong or I don't like it, I can returne it back store and get my money back.

We still need to see how the new panels behave.

Logically they didn't use the 2013 panels in both 2014 and 2015 models.

4K goes mainstream, 1080p goes bargain

If you enjoy plasmas look around for the Panasonic 65PB2E commercial monitor, it is a late 2013 revision on the ST60 with increased light output and the main board chipset is identical to it's predecessors which had only one frame of input lag, for PC gaming you can jack it up to 120Hz@1546x869 or 100Hz@1440x1080 with a custom profile so it should make a great gaming screen

The only part I'm not sure about is whether that model has short decay phosphors as it's not 3D ready  :chin:
