Hey pit !

I'm currently in the process of buying an HDTV and I wanted to have your opinions about the 60hz vs 120 hz refresh rate... Is there a really huge difference or both are pretty similar ? Is it worth the extra bucks ?

Thnx

120 is a bigger number so that's probably better. I don't have a clue

depends on what type of porn you'll be watching. 120hz is better if your erotic films tend to have alot of black people.

I'm more an asian or caucasian type... so 60 hz ?

Seriously there's a good price difference and I'd like to know if it's really worth it

My TV is 60hz, 1080p and 32inchs. Bought it for around 300 bucks and Im completely happy with it

No.

Most movies are 24 frames per second, so that's 24Hz. With motion interpolation (doubles the framerate, fills in the inbetween), that puts it at about 48Hz, or possibly even 96Hz, depending on what the TV has, but most people don't like motion interpolation anyways.

I honestly like the look of 60hz better. 120hz is just too smooth I guess. It makes everything look like a soap opera. Also if you plan on using it for gaming, all consoles only use 60hz

Mine's 100Hz, Good but I only notice difference between them when gaming.

We got a 120 Hz big screen recently.

Had to turn the 120 Hz feature off. If you're wondering why, you might want to read this:

Basically TV signals only send about 30 fps (30 Hz) to your TV set. What the 120 Hz feature does is add to that frame rate so that the image is smoother - but it does it in a rather crappy way. Because there are no actual extra frames, the TV basically fills them in. It calculates what the image between two others would look like and places it between them. This results in a rather unnatural look to basically any kind of movement and takes away from the cinematic feel almost completely.

120 Hz might actually better if TV was broadcast in 120 fps, but since a computer is basically making up the image for you, it looks absolutely horrible.
