Plasma tv's suck. Everything is reflected on their screens. I got rid of mine for a 3D led. Best decision considering I have lots of windows.

What brand and model? A lot of LCDs are just as reflective as plasma these days.

It wasn't a Panasonic or else he wouldn't have said plasmas suck.

Well, his only reasoning for not liking Plasmas is because it glares. Well, no s***. It's a glass screen.

120hz TVs do not take 120hz input. All they do is use crappy motion-smoothing technology, which makes the input less responsive, and can cause artifacting. It's designed to be retrofitted to filmed or prerendered media running at 30fps, not videogames.

Doesn't a 120hz 3DTV actually do 120 per second, 60 for each eye?

I think that what DarkZV2beta said is correct. 120hz tvs use either black frame insertion or an intermediate frame insertion inbetween frame in order to smooth out the motion to reduce motion blur. This is not good for most video games since it will cause input lag or onscreen artifacts.

According to an expert on the PS3 board, the main benefits that you will get from 120hz 3d tvs for gaming is that they will use the best panels with the best algorithms for the best picture quality. 720p 60hz tvs are usually the weaker tech with last year's panel or older.

it could be possible that some indie shooter will run 120hz but shooters are better on pcs. If your gonna get a 3d TV it'll end up being a 120hz anyways(or is the standard higher?)

oh and LED just because they tend to be really light and slim and i'm not sure if today's plasmas can mimic that. plasma tends to be good for darker rooms


My 3dTV is 240Hz.

I love the 200hz frame interpolation on newer tvs - it removes the juddering in 24p movies, but it adds lag that makes many fast paced games harder to play.

120Hz tvs only support 60Hz input. The 120Hz is for displaying 24fps (film) content at the proper rate, rather than using the judder they have to do to play 24fps on 60Hz TVs, since 60Hz isn't a multiple of 24.

It does but it still doesn't take a 120 hz input, the way 3d over hdmi works is that say, instead of sending two 1280 x 720 pictures to represent the left/right eye views it sends one double-sized 2560 x 720 frame consisting of them both side by side.

Seems a weird way of doing it, even on pc 120 hz pc monitors they can't actually run at 120 hz using the hdmi input because of it.
