Kindly need advice on 120hz large TV's

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello dear forum members,

I really need some of your advice here. I have a wonderful 55" plasma TV setup I use with my gaming PC, but it's only 60hz
I'm seriously considering buying 120hz screen, but using high quality large TV really spoiled me and I don't want to get anything smaller then 50"
And I'm having difficulty finding true 120hz TV. Many of them use these gimmicky 600hz or 240hz features.
I'm not after 3D, but it appears to me that in that size category it's my only choice.

I'm a right ? Should I search for good quality 3D screen and expect my pc to send 120hz signal ?
What should I be aware of ?
Maybe you can recommend something ?
My budget is not more than 800£

Thank you kindly for your time and answers,

This is actually called sub field drive.

Plasma's don't use a back light, so each pixel actually creates its own light. Each pixel only lights up for a fraction of what is required to result in bright beautiful color, so per refresh, each pixel is excited 4-10 times depending on the initial quality of the panel.

Plasma's also have very low input latencies. In my experience gaming on a plasma ( from nintendo to PC over VGA ) is a much more immediate experience than any TV I have ever interfaced with.

Depending on the quality of your plasma, it may work out better as I do not think there is a single 'TV' that will do what you are looking for.

They don't make big sized true 120hz tv's. I got a 27" Samsung that is true 120hz and it is great. i think that is the biggest you could get without using a fake 120hz tv.

What I do is use my 55" plasma for movies and tv and use the 27" 120hz monitor for my pc games. It is great way to go because you get the best of both worlds.

Thank you guys !

Yes, I spent few hours reading on PC monitors.
Can you suggest best PC monitor around ? I'm not sure if I should go for 27" with above 1080p resolution or 24" 1080p
I have GTX 690, but games like battlefield 3 or upcoming planetside 2 will undoubtably stress out even that card if you'll go above 1080p
From what I read you cannot get 120hz monitors above 1080p, bandwidth won't allow it 8-/
Do you think good quality 27" won't be too big for 1080p ?

I'm trying to find IPS screen, but with ultra low response time, somewhere under 5ms
Rear, that they have best colour quality, but not that good response time 8-/
And not sure if they do 120hz refresh rate 8-/

My budget is up to 650£


Thank a lot for your answers again !

You wont find a 120hz IPS unless you get an overclockable catleap.
