2 1080p plasmas - 1 600hz and 1 60hz, why such a difference? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
lol very funny thread.
the refresh rate is a huge numbers game by the manufacturers, which started with LCD's due to their poor response times of older panels. They got around this by the frame interpolation that we now see (120hz/240hz and is *****, btw). Another push was the HD content (bluray and HD-DVD) they present vids which were filmed in 24fps, and with 60hz tvs, the set would have to do a 3:2 pulldown - so display 3 frames of one video frame, then 2 of the next. with real 120hz,240...600hz the frame display is even, 5:5, etc, so you won't (shouldn't) see the shutter or stepping affect from the 3:2 pull down.

Us being in computers, ask yourself what device out puts 120, 240, 600 fps considering things at 60-70fps look smooth to us humans.

Anyway as mentioned it was probably a typo and dont worry about the hz/fps of these new tv's. Worry more about picture quality and price/feature set.

cheers and good luck!

It's how often the panel pulses per frame. Older plasma had 480Hz.. so 480/60 was 8 per frame. Current 600Hz tvs to it 10 times. It's not a marketing gimmick since that's how plasmas work, but it's used as such in comparison to LCD. It's does help with motion blur slightly, but not the same way an LCD with a higher refresh tried to..

Every plasma the last 3-4 years has a 600Hz sub-field drive, so I wouldn't bother looking at it as a feature when buying at TV. It's NOT the refresh rate, vsync wouldn't yield 600 fps, but 60 is set to 1080p60.
