I am buying a TV for my grandfathers birthday because his old one died. I was going to get a 32 in. but it looks like for a little more money (just under $400) I can pick up a 40 in. The problem is the cheaper 40 in. are only 60HZ. How bad will the motion blur be on a TV that size with the refresh rate that low? I have a older Sony KDS60A3000 in my bedroom and that has some noticeable motion blur. Mostly when gaming. I don't remember what the refresh rate is on my TV because it is a RP. I think it is 120 ?
My grandparents will be using this mostly for watching soap operas and stuff, they won't be doing any gaming or watching any sports and their vision is bad. Even so, I am concerned that 60HZ is still too low for a 40 in. Do I need 120HZ or will 60HZ be ok, just how bad is the 60HZ refresh rate going to look on that set ?
I don't have the exact model numbers, my mother wrote them down. I will get them and post them later, but I do recall the two I liked the most were a Sony model and a Vizio.
