    Great review, I have to admit I like this LCD it's kinda sexy looking, but I do agree that it needs a higher resolution.

    Nice mon...but I think manufactors should start thinking of making smaller bezel now because of the EyeInfinity. This monitor is look like it has 2" frame...ouch!

    Thx!

    I'm just waiting for the thin bezels with DisplayPort connection......THEN you can use EyeInfinity. DVI/VGA/HDMI won't cut it. I believe Samsung is working on such models for multi-monitor displays. I'll keep my eyes open.

    Me too...my current 24" Viewsonic have 1" bezel and I can pick up two more monitors, the same model for $219CDN each but when you group them up then they will have 2" frames and no DP connector.

    I don't know how long we have to wait for DisplayPort to become the norm connector for mainstream LCD through. Why you have both HDMI and DP connectors when both carry the same digital signals?

    I think Video card maker should make the vid card to work with DVI & HDMI instead of DP.

    Default Input Lag

    Am I reading the test wrong or is the input lag on this test really 47 ms or almost 3 frames? Maybe I am missing something but the claim of 5ms doesn't seem correct.

    Question

    Yes Rock, I think you may be misreading the numbers there.

    The CRT time shows 40.444s, while the Samsung shows 40.491s, which is a difference of 0.047s. This is 3/1000ths less than 5ms. So, rounded off VERY slightly (0.003s), it shows 5ms input lag, which is what is claimed by Samsung's specifications.

    So in fact, the real world time differential is in fact 5ms as stated by Samsung.

    Hope that helps clear it up!

    Sorry conversions and decimals has never been my thing, but hear me out.
    if 1 ms is 1/1000 of a second then
    40.1 seconds is 40 1/10
    40.01 seconds is 40 1/100
    40.001 seconds is 40 1/1000
    so
    .047 s is 47/1000 or 47 ms which if there are 16.67 ms in 1 frame then I would guess the numbers in brackets are frame numbers. That makes my math add up the samsung is showing frame [26] and the CRT is on frame [29].

    I see what you're saying now. I went back through all the photos I took of the Input Lag test and compared them to the published one and did note a discrepancy on that particular one photo. All the other photos I have showed a different, but consistent result. I think I may have grabbed the wrong pic. Here's another pic for comparison. Note the difference is essentially zero, with barely visible outline on the Samsung (left). Obviously it cannot be exactly zero, so the extremely fast difference is the "fuzziness" on the number:



    I think I may have to update the review pic based on this info.

    I really want this monitor and what is most important to me is input lag. From my research the most reliable way to show input lag would be to post an honest series of 10 to 20 pics in sequence so that the range and frequency of input lag can be observed not just the best result. If you don't want to post them all my question would be how often was there input lag and was it consistently up to 3 frames? Thanks for the quick reply I thought I was losing my mind.

    Not a problem, I appreciate you taking the time here. I see what you're saying. The published pic was actually the worst out of all the bunch, it was an absolute worst case scenario. All the other pics were the same result as the one above, or off by 1ms difference.

    The "intangibles" that the review simply cannot show is that when I was gaming, it was beautiful. Vibrant colours, lovely response. To informally test, I asked my wife to watch (she's not a gamer) and she thought it looked great.

    To be completely honest, if you can tell the visual difference in real-time between 5ms input lag, then send me your address and I may have a job for you testing monitors

    No I can't tell the difference from 5ms input lag, but I for sure can feel it over 33ms in a twitch shooter. If your in Chicago I would love to test stuff. 2 frames is huge especially if you are a sniper. One last question. Have you tried this monitor on a PS3 through HDMI? I'm curious about its ability to scale the 720p output most console games are rendered in.

    That I have not tried, sorry Rock. I'm not a console gamer in any way, shape, or form.
