Input Lag

Among 32S3800 monitors, the TCL 32S3800 has a better input lag than its competitors at 52.7 milliseconds, although its display lag is 29.3 milliseconds. Changing to the Game mode will reduce input lag, however the overall picture quality will suffer. There is no advantage to this trade-off.

What We Like
