PS2/XBox Video Games and DLP TV's

I'm looking at a Samsung HLR5067W 50" DLP TV. My kids will be playing both PS2 and XBox on this TV. From what I've read, some DLP sets create lag with video games that render them unplayable. Has anyone else had issues like this? Specifically with a Samsung? Any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated!

Not just for video games

In reply to: not that i've noticed

The main function of the TV will be for watching DVD's and cable TV. However, believe it or not, kids (and adults) do play video games. I know this may be a shock to you, but it's true. I just want to make sure if I'm dropping $2500 on a TV it will perform the same tasks my existing 36" tube tv can and more. So if anyone else has heard of the lag problem let me know....

yeah they look great. Esp the 720P Xbox games when you get the HD component pack and GT4 looks great on PS2 with the PS2 component cables. Not too much lag to deal with

SAMMY DLPS AND PS2 DONT MIX

In reply to: Not just for video games

Hi - I just wanted to let you know that I had a Samsung HL-P 46 inch DLP and returned it due to the Lag time with my video games. I must have called samsung 10 times trying to figure out a fix. There is none. I was IN LOVE with the picture on this TV so I returned it and waited 2 months for the new (and supposedly improved) HL-R Series came out. I bought the 46 in the HL-R Series, because the Rep at Samsung said that the HL-R was specifically made to correct the video game problem cause it has a fast processor. Needless to say I had to return it again because there was no noticable difference. I am now waiting until Technology catches up to this problem. For 2500$ it should play video games, especially when in a year much more advanced games will be out for PS3.

Other then the video game issue - the TV was the clearest set Ive ever seen.
