Thoughts?
My thought.. You ain't been married long enough to need permission to buy a new TV.

I expect your man card on my desk by Monday morning, wuss.

I use a Vizio 32" 1080p TV I got from walmart as my monitor and I absolutely love it.

Any happily married man knows needing permission starts at least a year before you meet her.

I have doubts that anyone can tell the difference between 120hz and 240hz.

Im curious about that as well. What are the benefits of spending a substantial amount more to get 240Hz?

I got my Phillips TV ($800) for a discounted price of $465. There was a Vizio (120Hz) for $600 that I was going to buy, but I decided to get the Phillips. I don't care if there is a difference or not, I know that I scored BIG with getting the Phillips.

For a 2d set that will never be 3d, it is a waste. Given that above 60hz any changes are barely susceptible to the human eye, and that you are not going to find a native source that can output that other than a computer.
For example: (for 3d you need to double the hz to get half the frame rate, two frames one for each eye).
720i 60hz
720p 30hz
1080i 60hz
1080p 60hz
Game consoles (360/ps3) up to 60hz
PC - The sky is the limit. (note: you need to use vga/dvi/display port, hdmi does not support variable refresh rates).

But consumers like bigger numbers, even if they are meaningless (there have been studies done), and manufacturers are happy to oblige.
