Most people see that if someone says 120hz is a must everyone follows. It's only for very high end PC graphics card users. Why do you think TCL still makes 60hz. It cause you dont need it. Would games run better of it was supported certainly I have seen it but for the majority of people who are console and movie watchers you dont need 120hz panels . I never said someone who wants a 120hz is stupid. It stupid if people have no clue what 120hz panel does and just says oh I want 120hz. Someone said oh I am not buying that OLED cause it's not 120hz. I asked why the person said cause it's not smooth so they decided against buying an OLED cause it's not 120hz. SMH
Sure, there are always misinformed people, on both sides of anything like that. Some people mistakenly believe 120hz has no real benefit to anything, and other people mistakenly believe 120hz panels automatically make everything better.
For the record though, a 120hz panel can actually look better for people who are just "movie watchers", who like to turn on motion interpolation, because the TV can literally output twice as many frames as a 60hz TV can. Additionally, 120hz panels can usually more easily prevent judder from 24p sources, since it can just display each frame of 24p content for 5 120hz frames, instead of having to actually lower the refresh rate of the TV like a 60hz TV has to do.
And, also, you really don't have to be playing on a "high end" PC to get high frame rates. Any decent mid-range PC can do 100+ fps if you turn other quality settings down, depending on the game.
I guess I just don't understand why you seem to be getting so upset that other people want something different than you. If 120hz is unnecessary for you, then that's awesome, you have more TV models in more price ranges to choose from based on their other features. But the preferences other people have don't really affect you.
