I can get a 54g10 locally for 1500.00 flat.Is the 54v10 worth spending the extra money on?


Also the flicker on 60hz mode is bad right? So you can turn it off and use 48hz, whats the downside of running 48hz all the time?If 60hz causes flicker then why run it at all?Does 48hz mode have problems or make it perform bad?I don't get it, I am very novice when it comes to the terminology and stuff.Thanks for any help and patience with posters like me.

Personally, I wouldn't pay more than 300-$400. The V10 is appealing because it offers more adjustability as far as Picture settings, and it has a higher refresh rate for 24p sources (96Hz).


You have it backwards... flicker is on 48Hz mode; this mode is for 24p (film/Blu-Ray) sources so it can evenly refresh twice. 3:2 pulldown is required for 60Hz mode because 24p cannot refresh evenly on 60Hz but causes film judder. 48Hz causes flicker because it's too low of a refresh rate. The V10 has a 96Hz refresh rate which is better at handling 24p.


48Hz is not used all the time because not all sources are 24p/Hz -- most video is 30Hz while most film/blu-ray's are 24Hz; that's why 60Hz is the base/standard refresh rate and 48Hz is a selectable refresh rate.
