120hz vs 240hz?

The price difference between 120hz to 240hz LCD TVs is at least a few hundred in the 46" range.

I understand there is a real difference between 120hz to 240hz in how fast it will refresh but for those of you who have (or had) both is it that noticeable in the "real world" watching sports\auto racing etc?

Paging Hamas.

I'm not terribly knowledgeable on the subject, but my understanding is that the price difference between 120 and 240 isn't worth it.

Now, IMO, there's a HUGE difference between 60 and 120. I'm not sure I'd want a 60 if someone gave it to me.

120 Hz means that the still pictures are refreshing at 120 times per second while the stat 240 Hz means that they are refreshing at 240 times per second.


I have both in my house and to me there isn't a whole lot a "noticeable" difference if any that I can tell TBH.

Yeah, when we replaced (let's call it) the wife's TV and went from 60 to 120 I noticed a big difference, now that we are in the market to replace "my" TV where I watch a lot of sports I was wondering if the same held true for 120 to 240 to justify the price increase or if it was just hyped science tech where you will never notice.

It'll be like when they make them refresh at 1,000 times per second,do you think your eyes will be able to tell that its so much better?

I have 2 55" lcds.One is a 120 and one is a 240 (bought them 2 years apart just FYI) and I honestly can't see the big deal.Maybe my eyes are old,or I'm just not watching the right stuff to make the difference clear cut.

I don't know if this is still the case, but 240 HZ used to be fake.

They would split the screen into 4 panels that each refreshed on their own at 60 HZ each and called it 240 HZ.

You want to make sure thats not the case.

You'd probably notice if you were watching 3D TV, which is where all of this is heading.

Well, that and holographic TV.

More and more films will be shot with 3D technology in the coming years and eventually, everything will be shot in 3D. There's a difference between shooting in 3D and shifting non-3D images to create a "stereo effect".

Direct TV now can provide 3D images, so I do think it's the future.

I have a 240 Hz TV, but there's really not much of a difference. The most important thing is to get a 120, not only for reduction in blur and judder (and better TVs have ways of mitigating this), but also to watch Blu-Ray in 24 FPS without the need for 3:2 pulldown.

Maybe,but I'm thinking the human eye would never see the difference between being refreshed 120 vs 240 a second.I'm not even sure the brain could process the difference in real time,but I'm always up for seeing something I don't fully undertand.
