Says its 120hz but looking at the specifications it is really on 60hz.

Idk hard to make up my mind about the hz's................

Alright so here's the deal about the Hz
TV is 60 Hz only, I've never seen a tv that accept anything beyond that.
The 120Hz on tv is marketing. It's frame interpolation, this means it's not very good for gaming as the post processing introduces a bit of lag. For movies and such though it works but there can be slight visual artifacts in the frame blending.

Computer screens can be 120Hz and accept such signals via dual link dvi cable and displayport too I think.

I wouldn't go with a TV if you are using it as a computer monitor.

@Whitemike20052

Terrible input lag on most TVs, along with bad color reproduction and bad scaling.

While no current TV accept a 120hz signal, some do actually have panels that "refresh" at 120hz or higher, giving you improved motion resolution even when all the post processing is turned off. Interpolation is what is known as "fake 120hz" and you might want to stay away from that. The following article explains the difference.
