Samsung has their Game Mode on some sets while Sony also has this on the Bravia line. If you don't turn it on, expect massive lag on most sets. On the Samsung LN52A850 and LN52B750 I didn't have much lag with the image processing enabled. However, I have been using Samsung's LN55C650 and LN55C750 for the last month and games are virtually unplayable without Game Mode enabled.
I have a Samsung that's a few years old now and I find I can dial in a better picture quality with Game Mode turned off. The only time I notice a slight difference in lag is when I play Rock Band or Guitar Hero on my 360, but those games have a setting to compensate for lag anyway. Now I'm also half blind so it could just be me.
