Gamer Alert! Input Lag Tests for 2017 LG, Samsung, Sony TVs

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, I’ve updated our input lag database with a ton of 2017 models from Samsung, Sony, and LG! It’s amazing to see how far gaming TVs have come along over the years. We are now getting several models with input lag below 20ms, an impressive feat considering all the new technologies they pack. The biggest surprise this year has been LG, historically known for sub-par input lag in their older models. This year, they have comfortably unseated Samsung as the current champion of low input lag TVs. If you missed our previous update featuring other LG TVs, including their top of the line OLED TVs, check it out here.

Excellent –  Recommended for the most hardcore gamers who value low input lag. The adjustment from a 60hz gaming monitor will be very minor.

Great – A small difference from ‘Excellent’ displays, it shouldn’t affect the grand majority of gamers out there. Those most sensitive to lag may notice, but will usually be within 1 frame.

  • 4k Blu-ray discs will support multiple formats of HDR, so it will take even more time than that for the dust to settle. The problem with HDR though is it isn’t a yes/no support like the 4k resolution; a TV could be a lot better at displaying HDR than another one.

  • I just got a Samsung 55″ Q6FN and it has a 9.2ms input lag on 1440p resolution at 120hz, also 9.2ms on 1080p resolution at 120hz and 4k also at 15.2ms great tv!!!
