    Hi guys. I'm looking for a 55-60 inch TV (tech does not matter much) that has a nice input latency. I have no need for 4k but it needs to support 1080p. It's only used for gaming. Brand wise I'm not too concerned about either. I'd like to stay around $200.

    I don't think you need to worry about input lag nowadays, most TVs are fine for input lag for most people, unless you happen to be a competitive gamer, in which case you should probably use a computer monitor anyway.

    With a budget of that much though I don't think I can suggest anything, the FHD models tend to start at around $400 or so.

    Ok, the one I have now has a gaming mode, without that it's terrible. I also have a 1 year old vizio that has such mode. Not sure it makes any difference (could just be for color). I guess i'm looking to see if anyone knows us a "deal" going on . Saw a 4k for 240 or something and figure surly I can get a 1080 for less. Though I guess sometimes older tech is more.... My requirement is not 1080, it's just I figured that would be lower in price. I do need a good refresh rate for gaming though, some 4ks suck.

    Here was the tv. I here this is a Sony sister company or something?

    Its just a generic brand so no idea if its any good or not I'm afraid, mostly those TVs aren't. I'd say you're much better off with that Vizio refurb.

    Can't really help you with deals, I'm not located in the US. Try to find a TV that's reviewed well on rtings.com cheap?
