Database Updates

Samsung 4K TVs tested for Input Lag

Our input lag database updates continue this week with several Samsung displays added to the list! This update adds the 2016 KU series, which is their more affordable lineup of displays when compared to the KS series. I did manage to get my hands on the KS9000 as well, along with some older displays that are still in production. The 2016 models do have lower lag than 2015 and older models, though you may score the 2015 models cheaper right now via Amazon. Displays rated Excellent will be best for hardcore gamers, whereas Great displays are still suitable for most gamers overall. Check the Amazon links to see the most updated pricing.

  • HI Adeel, I took a look at your tests list for the Samsung TV’s. I have the UN40KU7000F 2016 series. I noticed that the 65″ & 55″ 6500 series TV’s have 20ms input lag. Since i have the 7000 series model “newer”, would it be safe to say that i have the same 20ms input lag? Having a smaller screen make a difference? Please reply back to my UN40KU7000F series model. Thank you for your time.


    • Recently, Samsung has been providing low input lag values for their latest models, so you may be fine. However, there are definitely lag differences between different model series. Different sizes in the same model range are usually close to identical.

  • Hello,
    I recently purchased a Samsung UN55KU6290 based on your recommendations on Displaylag..
    I have a question though, what are the settings that you used on the TV to achieve a 20ms input lag result.
    Was it based on default settings out of the box? Or were there some values that you needed to change. Like turning game mode on / using HDMI port 1 etc..
    Please do let me know. Thank you very much.

  • i have this samsung tv the model is samsung ue40mu6100k would u be able to tell me what is the input lag on this thank you!
