I doubt the TV is true 120Hz, they all most likely use interpolation like the article I posted earlier. But many high end TV sets do use VA and IPS panels but they still don't offer true 120Hz. Look at what LG and Samsung have:
Auto Motion Plus 120Hzâ„¢
This is what they call their 120Hz technology, good marketing is what I call it
. If they did have true 120Hz and IPS wouldn't you think we would have that on computer monitors by now? But regardless of that it still does not meet the OP's criteria of higher than 2048x1152 resolution, bigger than 24" and less than 30", must have 120Hz, and must also be IPS panel. HDTV's use interpolation and claim the 120Hz tag, but they do use IPS and VA panels, but the resolution is only 16:9 sporting 1920x1080 best case scenario, and lowest screen size is like 32". So it doesn't meet the requirements. But don't confuse computer monitor technology with TV monitor technology as they're not exactly the same. The true 120Hz TN monitor panels can accept, display, and refresh at 120Hz consistently. Can't say the same for TV as they're not designed to specifically work with computers. So I doubt they can accept a 120Hz source from a videocard and display that with a 120Hz refresh rate unless you know of a TV that no one else knows about.
My guess is still going to be that all HDTV's that claim they do 120Hz use interpolation to fill in the gaps with more frames to make things look fluid.

Yes, I know that but the OP isn't going to get anywhere closer than that. Best case scenario the OP will sacrifice resolution for IPS + Interpolation for some kind of HDTV like this
. Otherwise give up on 120Hz and just get an IPS monitor. That's why I recommend to just wait for OLED. If you haven't seen one of those AMOLED screens yet they're amazing. The clarity, sharpness, brightness, resolution, and crispness of text is excellent. I couldn't believe how clearly I could read very small text on the Samsung Captivate. If you have a friend or know anyone who owns the Android OS based Samsung Captivate ask them to see the screen. It looks way better than LCD, go look at an iPhone and then look at the Samsung Captivate screen. You'd be like screw this, I want the phone with the AMOLED screen.
