Upgrading my gaming TV, currently I have a Konka from dse. I want to upgrade mostly because I can notice a big difference from its 720p image to my friends 1080p image on his samsung 32".

I've heard all about not being able to notice the difference of 720p or 1080i to a 1080p image on a 32" TV but I can notice the difference because of how close I play to my TV.

I noticed that it would be smart to buy a TV this weekend seeing as its Labour weekend, so I'd want to try pick one up for around $500-$600.

I have had my eyes on this TV (http://dicksmith.co.nz/product/GE6704/samsung-32-quot-full-high-definition-lcd-tv-la32d550) but I have played on samsungs and I noticed input lag, which I dont want any of.

Can anyone please recommend me any LCD's that they know from personal experience or reviews have no input lag. As well as at least 3 hdmi ports and of course FULL HD. All the other extra's dont bother me unless it has USB which can handle playing .avi files from an ext hdd :)

Thanks :D

If you want the least amount of input lag, you're probably best going for a computer monitor instead of a TV (unless TV technology has improved greatly over the past couple of years).

I know my Sony 32" LCD 1080p screen is slower than my Dell 24" monitor by about 12ms. It's so bad that using the TV as a computer screen makes me queasy :p the delay really is noticeable.

Certainly check out the manufacturers' websites for full specs on input lag between models.
