    The Great TV Debate

    Parents are getting me a TV before I leave for college and said that they're setting the max price at 450. I've found some decent deals but the biggest question I have...

    60hz v 120hz.


    Most tv's I have found within the budget are 60hz but there are the occasional 120hz tv's. After reading reviews on the 120hz people clain it's not "true 120hz" but "simulated 120hz".

    Can anyone offer some information about what that means?

    Would I be better off getting a bigger 60hz than a smaller 120hz?

    bigger 60hz. there is no source footage greater than 60hz. Blurays play 1080p at 60hz. Anything more is artificial and can sometimes detract, not enhance.

    120hz or higher makes watching things with fast action... like a football game or a race... smoother. Despite what it's broadcast at, those things on a 60hz screen can get blocky. It's called motion blur. But, that said, it's not a huge issue on a modern set. I have a 2 year old 32" 720p 60hz secondary TV and the problem is not that bad. If you're a sports Super Fan, you might find it a little annoying.

    that's a good point on some sports. As with any purchase, get to Best Buy and do a comparison on a Sunday when sports are on all the TVs.

    If its a TV that can play media off a USB port bring a thumb drive with you with some test videos that have issues on some sets. There used to be a few threads on the Doom9 and the AVS forums with sources to download test videos for certain types of artifacting/banding issues.

    The only sports I'm really gonna be watching is my team's Sunday football game, soccer when the season starts again. 90% of it's use will be for xbox gaming and netflix. I went to Target today and saw this Samsung 40" Class 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV - Black (U... : Target. Looked really clear and sharp and that was without any of my own personal tweakings. This deal is until wednesday. Whatta ya think?

    AVSforums - can't go wrong there for tips on what you're really looking at. I'll try to not write an essay this time and yeah, Sammys have good screens.






    ....pany plasma if you're gaming... lol.....
