Dear Lifehacker, I am currently in the market for a new TV. The new TV will be used for gaming, Blu-ray movies, watching TV and movies on Apple TV and watching Netflix and other streaming services. One big thing I'm finding hard to get my head across is input lag. So my question is, what is classed as "bad" input lag? The TVs I've looked at some have 37ms of lag, while others are lower or higher. I've been told that anything higher than 30ms is not good. What is considered an acceptable amount?

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
