Its on sale for 999$ plus a 100$ gift card. The only thing is it has no game mode would that matter? And is this a good buy?

You can't go wrong with a Sony TV like that, and in my opinion, it's not a big deal that it doesn't have any game mode.  Games played on it will still sound good and look awesome.

I'm about to cry from how beautiful that deal is
"While we're being honest, might I suggest something.

Please put your trophy profile as private, otherwise I might have believed you own a PS4 (thanks for the fake pic though)."

So even though it doesnt have a game mode its not a big deal?

Is input lag something common on older HDTVs instead of new ones? I am just hearing conflicting stories saying that i should get a tv with game mode and others saying that game mode isnt needed since input lag can be reduced by turning off Noise reduction settings and motionflow.

No game mode is not a big deal. Your going to want to calibrate the TV for the best picture anyway. I just picked up an LG 47" 3D Smart TV for just about the same price a few months ago. Will be a great TV for gaming. The resloution is the big thing you want to look for as far as how clear the picture will look .

Smaller screen means it will be cheaper, no Smart TV option and no 3D also makes it cheaper.
