  • Can you tell me the 3 separate measurements for the KDL-55W802A? The 20ms you measured is amazing! I want to confirm that’s really the worst time (i.e., it’s not one of those displays which refresh from the bottom up). Thanks!

  • Though the Sony KDL-55W802A supports 120 Hz (you listed it as such), the measurement is invariably done at 60 Hz (the refresh rate still used by console versions of fighting games today), correct? 🙂

    • Yes, all of my testing is done using a 1080p/60hz signal. No HDTVs on the market can currently accept a native 120hz signal, you have to go to computer monitors to get that. Fighting games are designed with 60hz in mind.

        • A HDTV that is 120hz has a 120hz panel, but HDMI 1.4 does not allow 120hz input. So what this means is, when you input a 60hz signal, the HDTV displays it as a 60hz signal, and will only apply enhancements if you enable features like “Motionflow”, “Auto Motion Plus”, “Tru Motion”, or anything that makes the picture smoother. This requires a 120hz panel to do correctly.

    • If all you care about is the fastest input lag response, then yes monitors are the safest way to go. This is not always true though, the new Sony KDL-55W802A is as fast as some of the fastest gaming monitors to date.

      • well that tv is to big I am looking for 32″ and under though I bought a KDL-32R400A 720p 32″ that says 120 by motionplus so i guess its really 60hz then, also I have seen monitors that say 2ms-5ms and the tv that you have listed is 20ms so a monitor would top that then?

  • also so basically no matter what on a HDTV if you want the best picture quality in a game there are things which create input lag that you can turn off but will lower pic quality but you get better responsiveness to come close to some monitors, but a monitor is where you will find 2ms-5ms for the most responsiveness? I come from a CRT TV which I think had 0ms so yeah.. I guess I still want good responsiveness.

  • I purchased the KDL-55W802A after looking at the input lag data from this site. I’m extremely satisfied with the purchase. Being able to play SSF4AE on a big screen is just awesome. Thanks for all the hard work.

    • Thanks Aaron! It makes me excited to know that we have viable HDTV solutions outside of the standard “EVO monitor” for fighting games. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

    • It would be really difficult for me to tell unfortunately, as I do not have access to HDTVs outside of USA. Please refer to sites like HDTVTest and AVForums, they cover displays from Europe.

  • I saw that you provided the 3 different measurements for the KDL-55W802A model to the other comment. I was hoping if it’s not too much trouble, you can also provide the 3 measurements for the “evo monitor”. Thank you for your time.

    • Hello Aaron, sorry for the late reply. Here are the 3 measurements for the ASUS VH236H, aka EVO monitor:

      Top: 2.7ms
      Middle: 10.2ms
      Bottom: 17.5ms

      Additionally, a lot of tournaments now use the VH238H, which is the LED version of the EVO monitor (the EVO monitor is now discontinued). The measurements for the VH238H are as follows:

      Top: 4.4ms
      Middle: 10.7ms
      Bottom: 17.8ms

  • Hello. Would you please be able to take measurements for the Sony KDL-47W805A? It’s the 47-inch Sony HDTV model on sale around here (Brazil), instead of the KDL-47W802A… Also, stores sell the Sony KDL-55W805A instead of the KDL-55W802A. Thanks!

    • I’d love to test it, unfortunately I don’t think I can find it here in America. However, AVForums have tested it, and they returned the same great input lag value as the W900A! So you’re in good hands. 🙂
