We Europeans have no way of knowing when differently named models are actually same. Unless manufacturer comes out and says so as a response to a social media question, which just doesn’t happen very often. And even when they claim “x is the same as y, there are minor differences” you can’t be sure because our European models usually aren’t tested as closely as Rtings guys do with their TVs.
Overall, it sucks and I hope someone, probably a German team starts a Rtings equivalent here. In the meantime, buy a model that is sold in both continents or make sure you have the chance to play around with a TV you’re interested in. Don’t forget, in the EU you usually have a right to return an item without stating a reason if you bought it online. Use that right to your advantage when sellers aren’t willing to let you play with a TV in store.
Those options are handled by specially designed hardware that adds no measureable input lag. We have tried to measure the impact of all of those settings, and found no statistically significant variation in input lag.
Very interesting. But different frame interpolation strength settings could affect the input lag, right?
Apparently there’s a service menu entry that needs to be changed. Look into that.
