- TV response time is a measure of how quickly a television screen updates to reflect a change in the video being broadcast.
- The changes are particularly from one color to another.
- Response time is measured in milliseconds, and the lower the figure, the better the TV.
- Response time is very important because it determines how well the TV deals with blurring during color transitions.
- A low response time can lead to black smearing which refers to trailing behind fast-moving objects in dark scenes.
- You can check for response time on the TV specs, or use a video lag tester to measure response time.
- You can plug in your video lag tester and then switch between picture mode, for example, game and standard modes.
- Measure the response time by touching the screen with the lag tester while switching different modes.
