A 120hz TV cannot display true 120fps.

Also the input lag makes things nearly unplayable.

Depends on the display technology being used. I know of two that don't have any such issues.

Well I'm running a Samsung 42" 1080p 3D-capable LED TV (getting pretty common nowadays) and the input lag is severe enough to make the mouse/keyboard feel completely disconnected from the player frown.gif

When you mean TV do you mean monitor? Some people us monitors as TVs. But 120Hz TVs does not mean true 120Hz, they emulate it. I mean the cameras used to film the TV shows probably wont even reach 60Hz/FPS. Console games will reach (from what I know) at most 60FPS (MW3 for example). I would just get a normal 60Hz TV. You will probably see 120Hz TVs in stores that "demos" their tech by showing half of the screen with 60Hz and a 120Hz on the other half, with the 60Hz half lagging like crazy. That is marketing rubbish.

Put your focus on size, features (wireless, USB, so on and so forth), color accuracy, lag, 3D, etc. Even if you have stuff that runs at 120Hz, it is pretty useless if you sit from the other side of the room. 120Hz monitors work cos you are sitting close to it and able to see the smoothness.

If you plan on using a 120Hz TV as a monitor, you are better off with a 23 inch TN panel with better response, lack of input lag, ghosting, etc. As monitors are built to run as fast as possible and as smooth as possible.

120Hz is a MUST. Anything else isn't needed.

I don't need anything over 60 fps anyway. It takes a little stress off of my system.

mine has 70-100ms input lag

turned off every tv process like Edge Enhancement, dynamic lighting, etc., in game mode (least input lag), and named the connection (PC) [gives PC most control for video output.

That's a huge input lag.

Same as our 47LK520.

So IDK. AFAIK Plasmas and LCD TVs (37+ inches) have great input lag. Plasmas have almost no "ghosting"/smearing or trailing though.

Sadly, to those who love the smoothing (soap opera effect), Plasmas have no features as such!
