Default Re: Looking for Decent 37-47 inch 1080p HDTV

I pay my electric bill and $8 a month ain't crap. I know it may mean more to a struggling student but it's just odd to me that someone would consider that when looking for an HDTV.

sorry to threadjack, does the 60 vs. 120Hz matter much? we are also lookin for a new HD TV this holiday season, probably from 42-50 inch range, and preferable $1300 and less.

For motion it does. Like sports and the like, without it you get a lot of motion blur.

does the Hz matter if you are watching standard def cable or HD cable sports? Cause we would be watching lots of sports...

that is simply not true, you sound like some ad

before I bought my TV, I went to best buy and was staring at the TV wall, 60hz and 120hz TV for maybe hour.

all I notived that 120hz screen was more fuzzy.

this will be good read for you Bob

Watching the same HD source material on every TV (it included recorded footage of a Saints-Colts football game and a U.S. Open quarterfinal tennis match), neither I--nor my compatriots--saw anything that made us feel 120Hz was making a real difference.

look like a little tear or glitch in the picture. They appear for just a fraction of second, but they are noticeable. It's worth noting that the picture on the standard setting sometimes looks unnatural, too, particularly when the anti-judder suddenly kicks in during a fast pan and stabilizes objects moving across the screen.

Planet Earth--because, in some instances, it can really alter a scene, or at least take away from what the director intended the scene to look like. This is called "director's intent," and movie purists would argue that anti-judder tarnishes the viewing experience

The fact is, we haven't had a motion-blur problem with any of the newer 60Hz LCD TVs we've reviewed in recent times. Don't get me wrong--we did see a lot of what you might call blurring in faster-motion scenes, but it was always inherent in the source, so it looked basically the same on all of the TVs, including the plasmas.
conclusion: tiny to no difference, causes visual problems.

I have a 32" toshiba 1080 and a 47"phillips 1080. On the phillips I can select 120hz, and I promise you that if I don't watching close ups in a football game will blur really bad.

I turn it off for when I am watching a move, or pretty much everything else because, as you mentioned, the picture quality is better with it off.

For some people the motion blur is not an issue, but it drives me nuts. Then again there are some that thing every channel they get is in HD because they bought an expensive tv.
