New 2015 4K HDTVs Tested for Input Lag: Samsung, Sony, LG, & Sharp!

It’s been a while since our last major update, though I’m happy to report that our input lag database has been updated with several 2015 models, and now features a staggering 422 displays tested! Most of our testing revolves around Samsung’s latest HDTVs, including their new S-UHDTV line. To achieve the lowest latency, it is important to update your HDTV to the latest firmware, as some of the firmwares shipping with these HDTVs have slightly higher latency until updated. Outside of Samsung, Sharp has made a huge improvement this year. Their brand new OS available in the 70″ 4K LC-70UH30U brings input lag down to a very low 32ms! Here is the list of new displays added to our database:

  • Thanks! Looking forward to the results of the Sony 940C (their only set with full array local dimming). One site has reported that they measured 20ms with FALD enabled which is unheard of among FALD TVs as FALD usually pushes the input lag to more than 100ms.

  • I never played games on a curved screen before. I do play fighting games a lot. What is the transition like (from regular screen to curved screen) when it comes to this? I appreciate any feedback. Thank you.

  • How does it look playing console or PC games at 720p or 1080p look on a 4K display? I’m assuming you turn off upscaling to reduce the display and input lag.

  • Any reason for not testing Vizio televisions? Rtings has them lower on input lag in game mode than Samsung, but they do mention motion blur is below average.

  • surprised to find only one Sony TV tested… From the Samsung heavy charts, it looks like Sony has fallen behind on input lag.

    Which would be really silly for Sony to let slip! Do they want their Playstation customers to go and buy Samsung TV’s…?

    I haven’t been to this particular site before, can you measure input lag yourself and then submit the results for your TV?

  • There is sort of a flaw in these display numbers. They are usually taken in “Game mode” which only runs low bandwidth 4:2:0 chroma and not fully utilizing the picture quality of the display. Could we get input lag numbers for “PC Mode” that run’s full bandwidth 4:4:4 chroma?
