So a 60hz 3D tv is bad and laggy for games is that correct?

doesn't 3d requies 100hz or something minimum anyway?

what you're looking for is "input lag". they do tests for TVs. the less the better. for comprehension: 16ms = 1 frame delay. 1 frame = 1/60 second [so 60 frames = 1 second]. ideally you want a sub 1 frame TV for fast paced games that require reaction, Fighting Games, Fast Shooter etc
for other games it's not as important. Most tvs have a Game or PC mode that usually reduces all the crap stuff the TV forces you to endure which makes the quality smoother and finer etc, which results in less input lag for that mode.

Not the vizio 32' 3d theater tv. It's 60hz. Go to amazon or just type in your search bar vizio 32' 3d theater tv. It's on sale too at target and walmart for $300.

"Real 3D" is 120hz Native, 60hz each eye. PS3 will send 120hz signal to your TV.

All 2D games are displayed at 60hz they have been programmed that way and are meant to play that way.

"hz" means the number of frames the TV will refresh every second.

Please turn off artificial "120hz", "240hz", enhancers like motion flow when playing games.

you have no clue.

Input lag is very important if you want a gaming TV; that is individual for every TV tho.

Look friend, there is no such thing as a gaming tv and input lag is subjective. There is no standard for testing it and everyone will experience it differently. The closest you will get is the input lag wars thread on avs, but I'd even take that with a grain of salt due to the aforementioned subjectivity.

So to sum up: input lag shouldn't be a factor in deciding on a display, but if it does really matter to you, take the model number in question over to the thread I mentioned on avs.
