He did. It was incredibly frustrating, especially since Call of Duty now allows cross-platform competition, so you can be in a lobby with computer gamers. Computer gamers have setups that have next to no lag. 67ms was simply too slow for my husband to compete.
Immediately after this session, we hooked him up to my HD computer monitor. His gameplay improved dramatically. To test it out for myself, I hopped into Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and engaged in a battle between the Athenians and Spartans. These battles have a lot going on – lots of high-speed graphics processing, and although I still annihilated those Athenians, I noticed the lag.
I also played Crash Bandicoot Warped, which is a game I have been playing since I was in elementary school. It’s one of those games you’ve played so many times you would KNOW if something was off. I played one of my favorite levels, and the lag was still awful. It’s not so bad that you can’t play, but I can’t recommend this as a gaming projector to anyone.
For reference, the highest input lag we recommend for casual gamers is 50ms. 33ms to 40ms is considered to be good, with 20ms and below being ideal for competitive gamers. The lowest input lag I’ve seen on a projector is 16ms. I published a report at the end of last year called Best Gaming Projectors of 2019 if you want to check those out. There are two 4K capable projectors included in that report.
