LG 4K, Toshiba, and Vizio HDTVs Tested for Input Lag


Concluding the final part of our HDTV input lag updates, this update features several 2013 LG and Toshiba HDTVs, including a single Vizio HDTV from 2012. I even managed to get my hands on LG’s gargantuan 84-inch 4K 84LM9600! In this update you will find several great gaming HDTVs, which can be viewed in our input lag database. The following HDTVs were added:

Best HDTVs for Gaming: Part 2


All of these displays can be found in the input lag database. This wraps up our massive HDTV update! Please stay tuned this week for the second part of my 2013 Best HDTVs for Gaming article outlining my top picks for this year, as well as a full review of the BenQ RL2455HM gaming monitor!

    • Based on what I’ve heard about the monitor, I’m sure it will be near-lagless regardless of the refresh rate being used.

      • At 120Hz, using my alpha version of Blur Busters Lag Tester

        TOP: Under 2ms
        AVG: About 6ms
        BTM: About 10ms

        (rounded off to nearest millisecond).

          • Input lag measurements at 60Hz are different than input lag measurements at 120Hz. AVG would probably be closer to 9ms or so — very close to the same average input lag as a 60Hz CRT (TOP: 0ms, AVG: 8ms, BTM: 16ms)

            (Note: “TOP” measurements on Leo Bodnar Lag Tester and the upcoming future Blur Busters Tester is the same thing as SMTT measurements — the CRT-vs-LCD input lag differential — for apples-to-apples comparisions.)

          • Thank you for that bit of info, will help my research. I own a leo bodnar( because of my input lag ocd), and test the tvs at work sometimes. It’s nice to have more reference points.

            When does Blur Busters lag tester expected to be released? How does it differ from the other methods?

          • It uses a similar square-flashing technique. It connects to a computer (e.g. lapop) and you connect the computer to the display. You put the tester on the screen just like you would of the Leo unit.

            The advantage of the Blur Busters Input Lag Tester is that the lag tester can test anything a computer can output: 4K, 1440p, 60Hz, 85Hz, 120Hz, 144Hz, even test input lag of laptop LCD screens too. You can also test via any output (e.g. VGA, HDMI, DP).

            The chief disadvantage is you need a computer. You can carry around a laptop however, and several new laptop models are able to output 4K now.

            I have prototypes built already with Arduino/Teensy running my custom microcontroller software, and intend to open-source it eventually (so you can build one for free, to run with my app). But people want pre-built units, so I’m now thinking of looking for a manufacturer.
