Do Any TVs Currently Offer True 120Hz Refresh? (FPS)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello;

I've been reading up on TV's and refresh rates but I am still a bit confused. One source I read specifically stated that no source currently offers more than 60 FPS - this leads me to believe that no TV is currently capable of displaying more than 60FPs (regardless of the refresh rate)

Essentially I'm looking for a 50"-55" TV to double as a computer monitor. i'm interesting in the 120Hz stuff so it's a toss up between a 120Hz monitor or a TV, but I want to ensure I'm comparing apples to apples. So my source input will be my PC which is quite capable of 120Hz

On a side note then, how does a computer monitor 3D differ from TV 3D then? (since my understanding is that 3D is based on 120 FPS? - or do I have that wrong?)

Thanks!

Not that i'm aware of. Most TVs that drive at 120 are still unfortunately locked to 60Hz max AFIK. :/

k Thanks! That's what I thought, but still held out hope.

Just as an afterthought - but what is the difference between how a monitor does 3D vs a Tv doing 3D? (My understand is that it is the monitor's ability to show 120fps that allows it to do 3D?)

Thanks!

You can force true 120Hz with some displays through your PC.

The reason I purchased my Samsung F6300 46 inch because there is a rumor (pretty true now) that all 46 inch models are Samsung Panels I got 2 in one shipment one for HDTV and the other for PC use. They are True 120hz high quality Samsung Panels. and Relableing one of the Inputs to PC allows my Gaming Laptop to push the panel to 120hz and Games Look Crazy Good with low input Lag.

Wow that's the kind of stuff I was dreaming about. Is this specific to the 46" or is it for all F6300 ?

Pretty sure its specific to 46 inch models. To top it of its very likely they are Samsung Prime Panels. So the original ones were TS01 Samsung Panels. As Samsung technicians have stated Samsung makes improvements to panels over the course of time which is why were are speculating the naming change to TU02. Because my panel has no clouding, no flash lighting, no DSE

Most Plasma TVs do 60 hz, but the 1080p60p ability has never been used; but finding a good true 1080p plasma is a different story. The higher end models need more tender loving care, and I assume you want 1080p not just 1080i or p, so a 720p or 900p one would be out of the question. The only thing which does 120Hz is a CRT computer monitor, which is perhaps overkill. With LCD, you get the frames, but they lose detail with difficult motion frame adjustments. This make it more suitable for computer monitors, along with the LCD techs better color reproduction. Static images are hard on a Plasma TV, especially brite ones, but some people prefer to play video games on one. I prefer not to on mine. I apologize if I offend LCD fans too much.

I've searched around trying to find more info on this, but couldn't find any. I was wondering if you could do me a favor and test the 120hz for frameskipping.

If this can really do 120hz 1080p with no frameskipping, i may just choose this instead of the seiki 4k.
