The human eye can't really tell a difference so it's mostly irrelevant. The 120hz technically is twice as fast at displaying the picture, but it really doesn't matter.

Most devices only output at 60Hz a lot of newer ones will output 120Hz but it really depends on the content being viewed action movies are great for 120hz but a lot of people won't notice the difference.

If you watch a lot of action type shows/movies, you may want to go up to a 120hz. It shows the picture clearer when there's action. So, it basically depends on the viewer.

120hz is good for sports and alot of high speed action. If you compare the speed you might see a bit of difference but not much.

No, you'd need to connect via an internet ready Blu-Ray player, or you can connect your laptop. I just plug in my laptop with an HDMI cable and can watch Netflix, etc. TV acts as a monitor for the computer.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN HZ AND WHAT THAT MEAN

answer 1
It's the frequency the image updates on the screen. It's not really relevant, but they advertise it as the higher the HZ the better it is for action, but I've read many reviews that say your eye can't distinguish the difference, therefore it's irrelevant.
answered 3 years, 3 months ago

answer 2
The difference in Hz is the refresh rate of the TV the higher the refresh rate the better for high action scenes normally. Most devices only output at 60Hz so sometimes a "soap opera" effect occurs on the TV sine the device and TV are trying to match the refresh speed. Though the extra Hz is nice most of the time the human eye cannot detect the difference.

I had the same question. Did some googling and found this article (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2379206,00.asp#disqus_thread) that provides easy to understand definition of 60Hz vs 120Hz vs 240Hz. Because of ths article, I opted to not spend the $150 to get 120Hz and opted for the 60Hz model instead.

great picture worth it. Hz is sharpness of picture. Our livingroom is dark and the pictureis awesome. Why pay more?

HZ (Hertz) formerly call cycles is the refresh rate of the picture. The higher the refresh rate the better the flow of the action, therefore the better the picture for watching sports, etc.
