Another (Deal) where they up the prices!... This was 599 up untill this deal...... Typical selling strategies! 😡 richersounds.com/sam…tml
Still 549 at John Lewis,
There are lots of very happy hardcore gamers (ie people like yourself that know what latency and lag actually mean and do) who have no issue with this tv - and the latest firmware with the "monitor" option has almost class leading input lag - what exactly is the problem? :/

This is a Which HiFi award winning tv.

You have definitely changed the picture mode once the input has been selected? (apologies for asking what might be stating the obvious)

I’ve not even configured anything and don’t notice anything on my X, should I?
From memory Im sure it says games consoles need to use HDMI 2 and or 3 due to supporting 60fps 60hz 4K (port 1 doesnt).
And, you NEED to change picture mode to "game", then modify that picture mode to get to your preferred colour, brightness, contrast etc.
But, on the latest firmware update (thats bug ridden to hell and causes the tv to run out of RAM on game mode in some instances), you can chose "monitor" mode for even lower lag (and again then modifying that mode to suit).

Which game are you 🤐
Amazon and AO have the 6753 for £10 more, which as far as I can tell is simply a newer model (no real specs different)

Me too, and with the 11ms quoted input lag I was all over it.

Does anyone have a different story?

Swype typos! Lol

I play a wide variety of game genres including FPS.
Hi. Looks like a very compelling deal. Any signs the TV is made by Vestel? I think the easy way to identify if Vestel panel is to look at the serial number. Four of the digits are usually in a black rectangular box. TIA

6753 is the exact same actual tv but with a different stand (same mounting points) and I think , possibly a crazy built in (not very good) sound bar

It is only noticeable when you play shooting games like, COD or Fortnite, if you turn around on the spot you can see it takes seconds to refresh the screen (from just being a blur), which if you are playing on-line means you can get shot or people move before you've seen them - you need to see it and only someone who play games frequently and has used a TV without the lag will notice.

I have factory reset, followed all the guides i can find on the net - it is a common issue, a google search will bring up loads about it, the latest firmware did not help me at all.

In the end we had to swap tvs around, so this TV is now in the living room, and the one that was in there is now used for the One X.

If anyone has issues with the TV after the firmware upgrade, like rebooting after changing inputs, rebooting whilst watching netflix, the only cure I found was to factory reset.

I love the Ambilight, it really is affective, but no good for the One X in my opinion.

What you're describing is concerning, but it wouldn't be "input lag".

Could you link to some of the discussions so I can catch up on this?

(Not sure how to search for it with the description you've given above).

bluetba - as someone just said, that isn't input lag.

Input lag is effectively the delay from the console outputing a signal to the tv, and the tv then processing that input data and displaying it on the screen.
The time taken is always constant.
Whether it's a tv signal or a game console, all tv's unfortunately take time to process the signal they are fed before being able to display it.
On a games console, whether you are running in a straight line, jumping or turning, the lag will always be the same - even when standing still, lag will always be there, and constant, as its just data to the tv that it's processing. That's why and how reviews can quantify and measure it - because it's always constant, with cheaper tv's (cough Vestel) having chronic lag, and dear ones not so bad (but always present).

What your describing is not input lag.
If it was lag, you running say left then turning immediately right would have the same lag as turning on the spot.

Oh, and Philips suggest downgrading to the July 2018 firmware to get rid of the new bugs till they get the fix out.
Edited by: "MrCynical" 2nd Feb
how is the HDR on this ? or is it just marketing that it can accept the hdr like other mid range tvs ?

i mean i know its not going to be 1000nits or anything, so im not being funny

just that it seems to be a pretty good tv that has an issue with gaming that phillips are actively trying to fix

Honestly, HDR is.......okay......just.
And thats after Ive maxed out HDR contrast & the other related settings.
Put it this way, I have the 2 disc Blade Runner 2049 4k bluray, and put the 4k / HDR one off and went back to the SDR normal bluray release as the colours and picture was just so much more vibrant.
Ive also, ahem, downloaded about 30 10bit HDR films to try, from Jonathan Nolan's 2001 4k remaster to the 2018 Matrix remasters, and Im, well, not greatly impressed.
Okay at best.
Unless you have an OLED or a 1000nits tv, HDR is kinda pointless in my opinion - and I have bought 2 of these tv's !

you're wrong, I have described input lag, a quick Google search will show loads of people with the same issue and many not finding a cure.

I have no vested interest in Philips tvs, I happen to like the ambilight, but I wanted to warn anybody who plays games that I had this issue and so to be aware of it.
Ok......
Lets Google input lag definition

"In video games, input lag is ......the delay between the television or monitor receiving a signal and it being displayed on the screen...."

And, let's re read what I said....

So what are they describing?
No idea what his tv issue is, but going by the blurring he is describing, it most definitely isn't input lag.
Don't take my word for it though - google input lag definition and read his issue - real strange...
Its a shame, as he has a really good tv that has a real strange issue.

Could it be described as motion handling? Just trying to learn.
Thinking about taking the plunge on this thanks

Thanks for the update. So - no lag / delay issues?

No issues like that. These TVs are not going to be as quick as computer monitors for a while. Even cheap ones have only 1ms, lol.

If you're a pro gamer you might notice the difference but I bought this as an all round solution. I prefer to PC and game on a huge display and this is perfect for me.

The quality of image isn't the same as other high end panels but when it's not side by side most wouldn't notice. It up scales 1080p well enough. The Ambilight looks truly amazing and is already helping my eyes as less contrast from between the brightness of the TV and my white wall.

Love everything about this TV. Ive spent a lot of money on tech in the last year. Like 150 on an RGB keyboard. 80 on an RGB mouse mat, lol. This TV is the cherry on the cake. For me anyways.
