120hz make a difference? - Page 2

post #11 of 68
I've been wondering this too, and been looking at the http://www.benq.com/products/product_detail.cfm?product=1775

It looks pretty good from what I can see. The thing is, my choice between this and a 27" Dell, would be pure size and 1600p on one side, and the 120Hz and even 3d someday on the other hand. If the 120 doesn't make that much difference, then I'd love me some huge resolution.

i have a 120 hz screen and yes it does make a difference but only when you have moving objects like in a game when you turn quick it wont be as blurred and it will be clearer

The difference between 60Hz and 120Hz is MAJOR in my opinion. It's like day and night.

On a 120Hz monitor, when Vsync is off, horizontal tearing is greatly reduced, if not almost totally eleminated. And when Vsync is on, input lag is gone. Also note that while in movement, the blurry effect on the objects and on the textures is almost gone on a 120Hz.

A 120Hz monitor is a must for any first person shooter player, it will change your life, no kidding. Even when you're only on your desktop, you will notice a big difference when moving the mouse and browsing on the internet, mouse mouvement is way way way more fluid.

Incorrect. The whole 600Hz plasma thing is a marketing scam. The picture on these panels is still only 60Hz, possibly interpolated to 120Hz.
The 600Hz figure comes from how often the individual gas chambers of the plasma are energized. 200Hz for Red, green and blue, adding up to 600Hz.
Like I said, a big scam.

Without getting into great detail, I'll give you a simple explanation and examples as to why many people still prefer to use CRT's and/or those who can afford 120Hz LCD's buy them.

There are people with good and bad eyes and some people are able to play a game without seeing it tear, show stuttering with small objects moving at different speeds than the rest of the image/game, and some can tell that movies just don't seem to really 'move' smoothly - while others will not see any of this.

Even though CRT's and LCD display their images differently a refresh rate will still come into play. The higher the refresh rate - the more times your image is updated and the more times your image is updated (given your hardware can handle high frames to match it) - the less likely it is you'll see visual anomalies. In a sense if you could play all of your games at 120FPS at 120Hz (CRT or LCD), after a while of playing them and then playing at 60FPS at 60Hz, you would start to 'feel' the difference.

Suffice to say, it 'feels' (drawing back your question I quoted) much better playing games at 120Hz if your hardware can keep up with the corresponding frame rate.

For the first week you'll enjoy the 120hz but then you're just going to get used to it. And it will not feel different than your 60hz.

Except... you won't like your 60Hz as much (well, that's what happened to me after getting some nice ATH-M50s for a month).

If the repective game can run at 120FPS, or you want 3d, then yes, it's a improvement.
