Sony's TVs are a joke - Get the input lag down to match competitors!!

[ Edited ]

Seriously. Sony makes game consoles, but their 2017 TVs (X900E series) still have nearly DOUBLE the input lag the Vizio screens did last year with the same type of panel (VA panel). Are you kidding me!? Make TVs for gamers ******. 120hz, FALD, under 20ms in ALL sizes. I shouldn't have to buy a giant screen or tiny monitor to get a good gaming experience. I'm looking for one between 40 and 50 inch, and if Sony doesn't fix their input lag via firmware update by the time the rest of the 2017 models get reviewed, I'll probably have to go with another brand. This is ridiculous.

Still waiting for someone to explain why Sony's TV are worth a premium price when everyone else beats them on input lag.

Input lag is hardly the only thing to judge a TV by. And in any case, in game mode the input lag is 35ms or less depending upon 1080p vs 4K which I think is hardly something that most gamers would consider unbearable. The <15ms difference is not exactly a make or break deal except perhaps at the highest levels of competitive gaming.

It's still rather sad that pretty much everyone else makes faster TVs than Sony and Sony is the one with their own game console.

It also looks incredibly ****** to offer 4 HDMI ports but only give 2 of them full HDMI 2.0b bandwidth. What kind of ****** is that? We should be able ot use all 4 at full bandwidth. I waited like 3 years to get into 4K and it's still a joke. Get your ****** together.

I agree, it would be awesome if everyone would include fast enough processors that there is no input lag.  I'd be happy if everyone could do 16-20ms with all the enhancements enabled and <16ms disabled.  I mean its not that hard, the tech is there (look at the 144Hz G-Sync HDR monitors that were just announced).

 

As for the HDMI ports, you only need 600MHz support if you're doing 4K 60FPS RGB or YCbCr 4:4:4.  The other ports can still do 4K 60FPS 4:2:0 or 4K 30FPS RGB/4:4:4.  Not sure about HDR and/or 10-bit video on those ports though.

So everyone just dropped the price on 3 of the 4 X900E models by $200. Once again the people wanting a good TV under 50 inch get screwed, since the 49" didn't get a price drop.
