My main purpose of the TV will be Blu-Ray movies and Playstation 3/XBox 360. Will I be happy with 120Hz, or better of with 60Hz?
I just bought a 120Hz TV last night, just for future's sake.

Honestly, go to a Best Buy or where ever and ask someone to show you the difference with a Blu-Ray movie. The biggest difference I've noticed is that with 120Hz, the movies just don't look "theatrical" anymore. It's too fast/smooth for me and doesn't look theatrical/movie-like to me.

So now when I watch movies, I go 60Hz. Otherwise, I'll do 120Hz for football games, etc.

EDIT: I hope that I'm on the right track. If 120Hz doesn't cause what I mentioned, then oops. That's just what I've been told.
