My TV, Lag, & Blops 2

Call of Duty Black Ops II Xbox 360

My TV, Lag, & Blops 2

Here is a link to my TV.  I don't believe input lag is a problem, but I thought I would ask here for some feedback. 

http://m.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/PN43D450A2DXZA#specs

Samsung 43" Plasma

.001 ms response time, I would think that this is rather fast and shouldn't be a problem.

I have tried it in and out of game mode with no noticeable difference.  I have also tried 720 and 1080 settings on the Xbox and haven't noticed a difference either. 

Thanks.

It does have a profound effect, trust me.

I switched from my Big Screen to a 23" gaming monitor and the difference is amazing.

Yeah I had a 32" Asus, and started messing around with other TV's. I gotta say I was amazed at how much of a delay there was, and I never knew. Now I use 20" gaming monitor as well.

But here's my question: my response time on the TV is super low.  Why would there still be input lag?  And if there is why?  Is anyone able to explain?  And why do I only experience this lag for some games like BLOPS 2 while I do not experience it for BF3 or BLOPS 1?

Response time is not input lag. You can have a Playstatiuon 3D display with 4 ms response time but it have 33 ms average of input lag. That's 2 frames per second that you're missing.

For XBOX gaming, I recommend Asus VH236H, BenQ GL2450HM and RL2450HT. All of these gaming monitors will work well for XBOX and have sub 1-frame input lag.

I use a 28" PC monitor and still have lag.  Not input lag, just the regular bad coding lag.

Also, before assuming your televison is a problem, put in MW3 or another earlier title and see how you fare.

Lulz, TV input lag is making BO2 unplayable....

I mean the lag is bad, but blaming your TV for milliseconds lost?

It makes a big difference, believe it or not.

Not enough difference to go buy another TV.
