My Best Buy at home never had the 120hz MotionFlow (or whatever) running properly. Yesterday I looked at the Best Buy near my parents', and they very clearly had 120hz frame interpolation running on Pirates of the Caribbean. In my opinion, it looked hideous. It was ridiculously smooth, and I don't want to have anything to do with it.
My TV will be 80% for video games (new and
old school), and the other 20% for movies (divided up between DVDs, Blu-Rays, and digital distribution on PS3). No regular TV, no sports, nothing else.
The idea of 24 frames going into 120hz is appealing to me in theory
, but would I even see a difference?
Would 120hz help with anything else? Does it increase or decrease game lag over its 60hz counterparts? Does it do anything else to make the picture sharper or prettier if I am doing anything other than outputting Blu-Ray at 24p?
120hz puts a TV in a whole new price range, and I'm still willing to consider it if it's worth it for any reason other than frame interpolation. But if true 24 frames on Blu-Ray isn't that big of a deal, or it does nothing else that's helpful, then I'd rather buy an equivalent TV at 60hz.
