Thumbs down 120hz LCDs

currently i have a samsung 46" 1080p (60hz). i bought an "upgrade policy" (extended warranty) and i was doing some shopping to see if 120hz and the LED technology is worth it and see what i may want to try to replace my tv with.

i spent some time looking at a blu-ray picture on a sony 52" xbr4 with 120hz refresh rate. the tv is supposed to be the best in LCD technology and picture.

honestly i was grossed out at the image the tv created. it turned 2 different movies (spiderman 3 and fanstatic 4) into documentaries... what i mean is that movies in general look different. they are mostly recorded at 24 fps and have a fantastic cinema filter that seperates a movie from a movie. after all this added technology that "movie feeling" is gone and people look like beowulf and it looks like a video instead. i guess you can turn it off but why spend the extra cash.

i'll stick with my current sammysung.

It has a lot to do with the source. I personally love the 120hz and I have 2 TV's currently that do it. The Sony 55A3000 and the Samsung LNT4071. The XBR 4 that I had did OK, but I like the A3000 and the LNT's 120HZ engine better than the XBR's. It makes a lot of the movies look 3D and more vivid in my opinion. I think it also helps with gaming. The 24fps is native from what the movie is being shot at.

the a3000 is pretty much exactly the same as the xbr.

Different bit-processing and the one I had (32XBR4) was different resolution.

I've heard the same from a friend of mine. He turns the 120hz off when watching movies because it's so sharp it's distracting
