LG OLED TVs and Gaming

TR0N 1,267 803 January 6, 2016 at 09:28 AM
I have been wanting an OLED TV for a long time. I almost bought one this year, but waited. The CES 2016 announcements made me think, pending reviews, that this is the year for me to get one.

Anytime there is a LG OLED TV deal you will see people in the comments complaining about refresh rate for gaming. I play a lot of games and actually the TV's primary purpose will be for that.

My question is.. the people that complain about input lag and etc.. are they the equivalent to audiophiles? Meaning that while they may be true you are almost suspicious if they can actually even discern a difference.

If the 2016 have no major improvements to the refresh rate what bad thing would I expect to happen when gaming? I press X and there is a delay? Rock band games won't sync up?

If you have a current 2015 OLED.. do you notice?

A lot if led TVs have 60hz and many people complain about it. Do you notice a difference on them? I think only the truly perfectionists will notice.

I suggest you wait til your local elections store gets one on display. Ask management if you could bring in a game system and try it out. I'm sure it wouldn't be an issue and you can see for yourself

Refresh rate and input lag are two different things.

My suggestion since this really depends on the individual is go to Best Buy and buy one and try it out, if you find you have issues with it you can return at absolutely no cost to you.

The only way to get rid of that input lag is to get a monitor or an old school CRT. You will have some on any LCD, LED or OLED. I don't think it will be bad enough to cause real issues. People that complain about it are nuts.

If you game on a console, the best you will ever get is 60hz anyway. Many games are still at 30hz on the Xbox One or PS4 anyway.

On PC, it depends on your rig, but I don't manage much better than that anyway.

You may have to run off some of the frame blending or interpolation settings on the TV if you have a TV at 120 hz. It made me nauseous for a while before I understood what it was doing.

Response time, Refresh rate and input lag are three different things.

usually something like Gaming mode will be less Input Lag

rtings.com has amazing stats and testing on these displays. In short, they have insane response time, but some still stuffer from blur.
