Help me pick a TV Samsung vs Sony

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

After much research and such eye strain, wow, I've narrowed the choice of a new TV down to two models:

Sony X900F (55 inch)

Samsung RU8000 (55inch)

 

Both are the same price ($999 CAD).

 

I'm leaning towards the Sony, but the Samsung has better input lag for gaming. Now, input lag isn't a huge deal for me for modern titles, but I have a retro-pi and am worried about input lag for old platformers like Super Mario World. Could someone help me understand the input lag numbers?

Would a retro pi output 1080 at 60hz or 120hz? I'm outside my wheelhouse here.

You wanna hook a thousand dollar tv to a retro $30 retro pi?  I doubt such a device has the horsepower for 120hz anything even if it’s port is rated to do it.

 

this isn’t a question about TVs.  It’s a question about how much video a retro pi can put out.


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

Well, it sort of is a matter of TVs because if I'm worrying about input lag over nothing then it makes the decision. A retro pi is just one of my use cases.

Neither.

 

Get a LG B9 or C9.

They are G-sync compatible and provide a better gaming experience.
