HDTVs cannot accept a 120Hz input signal, rather, they interpolate or repeat frames at 120Hz. You need a monitor.

The M32 is a 60hz panel that uses backlight scanning to achieve fauz 120hz. In order to get the 120hz you need to step up M50 with 120hz panel with backlight scanning achieving faux 240hz..

As stated above, the tv cannot accept a 120hz signal, even though it is a 120hz panel. If you are watching 60hz content, you likely will not notice a difference. You will notice a difference if you are watching 24hz content, and if it's being output at 24hz.

If you are looking for a display for gaming, you should look into a dedicated monitor, not a tv.

Everyone here is actually incorrect, but somewhat correct...."most" TVs can not accept 120hz signal, but not all, in fact, all of them can....just most of them are not designed to from the factory, for some TVs you can get around this with softwre manipulation, now this doesnt work with a lot of TVs cause as stated above many TVs use a false way of achieving 120hz effective refresh rate. but many do not.....for instance a 3D TV REQUIRES a true 120hz refresh rate for an effective 60hz in both eyes and some 3D TVs will work right out of the bx as 120hz computer displays, and some require software manipulation for it.

This particular display i own, and am currently running it at 120hz effctive refresh rate, the Vizio m series (which nobody seems to know here) is a hidden gem for PC users under a marketing box, it has an array of options to change to allow it more compatibility as a monitor and allows for you to turn off its "TV" functions. It also has a game mode in PC settings that shut offs certain features that are more important for TV viewing to allow it to obtain a faster response time much like a monitor. Fortunate for you, and me and anyone else that did any research, not including the people above, it can effectively achieve 110-120hz refresh. this has been tested and proved with this series of vizio TVs, the other plus, is a lot of the models contain IPS panels as well, which is the most popular panel type for monitors, providing near perfect viewing angles and accurate colors, if you have the M323i-B1....it contains an IPS panel.

in my opinion, this TV is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, fast reponse times, IPS panel type and capable of 120hz refresh signals and 32" display size....for $270....you would pay 600-900 for a 28" monitor with the same funstions.....the only downside from this TV and a monitor of that same size is the native resolution of 1920x1080.....where as the monitor is most likely 2560x1600. but to me, for the price thats a greeted change off.

more information about what im talking about it at blurbusters website....(i cant post links yet)

so yes, with some playing around, your TV will effectively get 120hz.
