From your review of the VPL-VW300ES:

"Turning the new Input Lag Reduction option off sees the measurement rise to as high as 100ms, showing that the feature is far from the gimmick we’d initially suspected it might be."

With it turned on the 300 had a 30ms latency.

Does this more-expensive model not have that feature or did you not turn it on? Pretty important for me as I want a pj I can also use for gaming.

Hang on, this review is from a year ago. You've linked the wrong review at the top of the homepage; I think you meant to link to the 300ES review.
