TV Help

i am planning on getting a Samsung 46 inch LED tv. My question is that the tv is 60Hz and I have been told for watching hockey and other sports its important to get a 120hz. I just want to know if there is a big difference between the two and which one some experts on this forum would consider. Or if anyone know any other good deals for televisions that are on right now.

Thanks in Advance

I thought all Samsung LED TVs were at least 120Hz Refresh Rate? What model are you looking at?

Have you considered plasma? I can't stand LED or LCD. But ya, I would never buy a 60hz set for sports.

I have a 55 inch Samsung Led 240hz and hockey is amazing on it, HUGE difference over the old 60hz.

60hz is fine for games but for sports you will probably want at least 120 / 240hz

Same TV i have i think, the 7000 series? On to the op question I owned a 60hz tv previous to the one I currently have and I did notice ghosting behind the puck and ball in baseball.

Yeah, 7000 series, 3D.

i bought a lcd 46 inch samsung 120 hz and even though i could've gotten the led version for 50 bux more i opted for lcd since the led one was 60 hz. whatever tv you get make sure its atleast 120hz, as you can tell from previous posts, it may make a difference and it sure would suck bringing the tv back after unpacking it.

EDIT: this is the tv i bought on boxing day for 749... http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/LN46C610N1FXZA

I have the same one as well

Amazing quality hockey on there. Sportsnet feeds stink anyways but when games are on TSN even if I'm not watching in HD the quality is still awesome.

Hey guys Im investing in a TV and was thinking of getting a plasma TV and I wanted to know from people who have had plasmas before if they are any good. The TV I plan on getting is a Panasonic 50 inch but the thing is its only 720p.. not to sure if its a drastic change from 1080p however Iv been trying to find research on the TV I was planning on getting but couldn't find one review which I think is a bad sign.

would appreciate the help :)

Reason people tend to buy lcd/led is also because of weight especially if you will mount it on a wall...of course there also other things to consider like room lighting etc

I would recommend not buying a Plasma. LCD/LED is much better compared to the two, I know because we used to have a plasma.

Plasma screen is much dimmer and sometimes the screen gets kind of weird like random spots, no problems with LED/LCD TV.

:picard:

A quality plasma has superior PQ over 99% of LCD TV's any day other than in VERY bright rooms. They're also miles better at fast motion AKA sports.

Either you previously had an absolutely garbage plasma and/or you did not calibrate it remotely properly.

I didn't say it had a bad quality picture, I just said it was dimmer compared to LCD/LED. I just had a bad experience with the plasma that I had.

The picture quality wasn't bad, there was something wrong with the TV. It only lasted a year and a half, but Sony LCD has been working great for the past 6 years.

Plasma's go faulty way more often. Many cases i've heard where they switched from plasma to lcd because their plasma crapped out.

Great picture though. While it lasts. But go lcd/led.
