Other threads are putting it down as "overhyped" and not even an issue with the panels used today.
Since the 71's do not exist all you can get is speculation. Put it this way, unless you have a 60Hz panel next to it viewing the comparisons like they do at the Trade Shows you won't know. Since 120Hz makes motion smoother but may never resolve it 100% you simply have no way of knowing for a fact since you won't see the artifacts when it is working to make it smoother or motion free and no way to judge without a comparable 60Hz adjacent. How could you possibly measure without the Trade Show Demo Model?
I would say that if it works the way it should Motion should be smoother and resolve most motion but the falacy is in expecting 100% to be motion free - take the trade-off since it being a backlit panel and cases where you have strobing and lights and such being a transmissive light it can only react so fast.
Go into it expecting smoother motion and less observable incidences but I would not expect that you'll never see any by virtue of 120Hz of it's own fix. It's a step forward of many others and perhaps the big next step next year will be 24fps. My Sharp has rare occurrences and understand the technology but it is so rare that I have no issue but would always welcome that additional tweak to make it smoother yet! BTW Zero motion on HD DVD and X360 with my 57" Sharp.I don't recall any Technical Spec ever stating that 120Hz will resolve motion 100% guaranteed
- every literature I've read stresses smoother motion. It would take a Lab Shootout or a Trade Show side by side to prove it IMO.
