What is input lag?

The input lag is an important TV specification for gamers. This determines how many milliseconds the delay between your controller and screen is. The lower the input, the faster the TV responds to your actions. In this article, you can read more about the advantages of low input lag.

The importance of a low input lag

The input lag of a TV is only important when playing video games. When gaming, there's a small delay between the controller and the action on the screen. This can negatively affect different types of games. Think of a racing game, during which you take a corner at the very last moment. If the game registers your action too late, you'll crash into the guardrail. With a shooter, you're at a disadvantage if the opponent sees you first and is quicker to react.
