Refresh rate vs HD/4K?
How important is refresh rate, really?
I currently have a 50" Samsung HD with a clear motion rate 240 hz refresh rate (so really 120 hz). I'd like to move up to a 60", but it seems unless you're willing to cough up big time $$$, the best you can get is a clear motion (or whatever it's called for other brands) 120 hz (so really 60 hz). I can't justify coughing up $1000+ for a tv at the moment, so I'd be getting a 60", 4K UHD, with a 60 hz native (upscaled to 120 hz with software). As it is, I turn off the clear motion in our current Samsung because we don't like the "soap opera" effect. I watch plenty of live sports and have never noticed any blurring.
So, my question: am I better of sticking with a smaller, regular HD that has a native refresh of 120 hz, or is it worth getting a lower end Samsung or LG that's 60", 4K UHD but only has a 60 hz native refresh rate?
