Purchasing gaming tvPosted by Lucky Tiger13 on 1/21/13 at 2:20 pm
About to buy a new tv for the Xbox 360. Will not be a "need" purchase but I feel like I deserve a new toy. I need that last little push to know I'm making a smart decision. What do you guys think? 60 in samsung led 1097.99
I tried playing on a Samsung 55" Smart TV. Don't get me wrong, the picture is outrageous, but I was nearly concussed trying to keep up with the size playing MW3 and BLOPS 2. For Madden, GTA, FIFA it's a joy. FPS games are the worst on large TV's though

Are LED's bad for gaming? I love how movies and games look on it, but it seems like they may lag more on an LED? Friend can play CoD on his smooth as hell, but when he plays BF3 you can notice it lags a bit.
i dont know your situation, but if you are buying a television just for gaming there a few things you need to take in to consideration.
First if you are a fps online gamer that tv is absolutely terrible for what you.
If your into games like assassins creed or madden then that tv would be great for you.
Online shooters such as cod are not good to play on that type of tv because of response rate.
smaller less expensive lcd tvs or lcd monitors are much better for online shooters.
i bought a $2000 Panosonic plasma top of the line about six months ago for gamings. i played on it one day and it was almost unplayable. i did a little research and found out about response times, and it turns out the better the tv the longer the response time it has.
Well I guess I could have explained in the OP. I'm not a fan of shooters on console and the tv will be mine main tv in the den. Used for football/baseball/and movie nights with the lady. I was asking more if the price/quality was a smart decision lol. I came here for tech help more than lifestyle.
