Gaming TVS If you’re into gaming then a television that gives you an advantage is vital
Televisions come with their own built-in latency, and high latencies lead to less-responsive controls. Manufacturers rarely mention these figures, but look online and you’ll find some useful sites that list television latencies.
Local dimming works by dimming the backlight in the image’s darker areas, resulting in deeper blacks. TVS with good dimming can have excellent contrast, making for more vivid, expressive colours but they can also add to a TV’S latency.
Don’t believe refresh rates
Higher refresh rates update the image faster, which should reduce motion judder. Console games run no faster than 60 frames per second, so refresh rates of 120Hz and more won’t hugely improve performance. A 60Hz set is more than capable.
Game mode disables processing modes thereby reducing input lag. That’s the good part. Less good is that contrast and image quality suffer, resulting in a drab-looking image. A game mode can be useful, but it can also compromise the image.
