Anyone who is trying to sell you on 120 hz being much better never had a good 60 hz monitor in the first place. I can't give factual data because you would need some crazy equipment and it also comes down to the human eye, so I can only tell you from experience.
I would say ideally in person testing is one of the best ways to go about this, not reading user comments.
Don't go that "the human eye" way.
For the millionth time, the human eye does not see "frames per second". Even if it did, it would've been able to see everything from 60 to 500 fps.
Also, what are you using your monitor for? 2D Movies? 120Hz = Useless. Browsing? Useless. Pictures? Useless.
Gaming is in reality the only thing you gain, other than 3D for movies. Oh, and just to be sure, have you ever tried it in a game where you have over 60FPS?
To be honest, if you don't notice the difference between 60Hz to 120Hz, you should seriously get your eyes checked. It's impossible to not notice the difference. I'm not trying to flame you, but seriously..
