10 MS response time going to hurt a 120hz tv?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at the LG 42ln5400 but the response time worries me.
I dont plan on doing any high end gaming on it should be fine otherwise?

Please advise a different/better TV if you can so far this is what i got

8ms or below should be fine.

Here is some info on LCd response time

Does that mean this tv should be avoided? i think its an LED-LCD whatever that means.

would the additional 2 ms be a noticeable difference ?

or does this mean it runs at the equivalent of a 100hz screen?
as you can tell i know very little about this.

Thank you your feedback

LCD tv's come in two basic "flavors" depending on the backlighting technology. LCD, which is backlit using CCFL technology and LED, which is backlit or side lit using LED's, but they're both LCD panels.

The TV you are considering is a 60Hz panel. "Trumotion 120Hz" is LG speak for a 60Hz panel utilizing a processor producing frame interpolation to provide an EFFECTIVE 120Hz refresh rate. Don't get on LG about this, most manufacturers fudge on these numbers that way. 10 ms response will be fine.

Very very helpful thank you.

Since I will be connecting the tv to my computer and can use my own form of motion interpolation(power dvd and some others) I would better off getting a regular 60hz TV as it would be potentially cheaper?
Is there any someone might be able to recommend? perhaps the ln5300?

You can "turn-off" TruMotion on the LGs but I don't know how effective that is. As far as sending a pre-processed signal to the tv via a pc, I'm not sure how well that would work. Maybe somebody here has done that and will chime in.

I have a month old LG 47LA6200 (A US model). I leave Trumotion disabled for everything except sports and 2D-3D conversion.
