60 Hz vs 120 Hz
 
Is there really a big difference? I mean, is it going to be noticeable when I'm watching sports or playing vid games on my ps3?

I can't see any flickering at 60Hz on mine and I can generally tell a flickering screen a mile off. It doesn't seem as bad on TFT's as CRT's to me. 50-60Hz CRT's give a headache after a while, but not TFT's.

Best thing to do is to go to your local store and check it out for yourself :)

research the 120hz tech, it is not so great like the people at best buy will make you believe. it actually reduced image quality.

and there is zero flickering on 60hz screen

120hz is oldschool, there's 240 and 480hz now... get with the times :)

Doc I have two hdtvs one with 60 and the other with 120hz. I can notice motion blur in the 60hz when watching football, especially when there are close shots of fsat moving action.


If sports is your thing then you may want to consider the 120hz model, but the picture quality for movies is better @60hz.

240 and 480Hz in plasma only... 120Hz is the top in LCD. And personally I think Plasma's SUCK!!! The glass in a plasma will NEVER look right in a well lit room or with window blinds open... they take way too much planning to get them to show well.

Wait...I think people are confused. The jump from 60 Hz to 120 Hz was not to get rid of flickering (as it was known on crt's). It was to get rid of the 'judder' or 'jerkiness' when playing 24fps material (blu-ray etc). I'm not really bothered by the jerkiness (I barely notice it, and when I do it's usually just on slow panning scenes...).

correct. 120Hz or 24p allows 24 FPS material to have each frame refreshed 5 times, instead of the 3:2 method employed by 60Hz displays.

tbh, most people cannot tell the difference lol.

you know, i have been thinking about this a long time, and tbh, if you dont notice anything with a 60Hz TV, i doubt you will notice anything with 120Hz.

plus, i dont think the price difference justifies the purported visual improvement.

Once you've seen judder you'll see it forever.
