I want a 40" LED 120hz monitor. Need help. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Yeah as everyone pointed out... the 120hz technology in TV's simply adds input lag...
If you want a real gaming monitor, and have the hardware to always push out 120 FPS, then go for a true 120hz input monitor (with dual link DVI)...

I personally use my 42inch LCD 1080p for movies and such... and tried this on my other Sony XBR9 240hz TV and it was horrible... TV's can only predict frames inbetween so well without adding too much of that input lag...

/\ This, just remember you aren't really going to benefit, in fact for computer use it may be worse. If you can save money and get a 60hz model it might be worth looking into. But if you are confined to getting the 120Hz model, you can always turn the automotion/motionflow off.

yeah i agree, if you don't plan to use the 120Hz technology for movies etc. then you're better off going with a 60Hz tv. when it comes to PC-use the methodology of finding a tv is inverse: less is more (i.e. look for low-end stripped down sets without a lot of features). here's the 60Hz version of the set you're looking at OP: UN40D5500. also Samsung's 2012 models are now available on amazon: UN40EH6000. no idea how this functions as a pc monitor.
