WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN HZ AND WHAT THAT MEAN

5 answers
Answers
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 2 years, 7 months ago
By
IdahoMatt
 - Moscow, ID
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?

answer 5
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.

BEWARE!! I bought this TV for my husband last Christmas and it is now 2 weeks past the 1 year warranty and just died. Vizio recommended 2 repair companies and it will cost us $400 to get it fixed. VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS TV!!! Had to actually pull back out our old 19 year old TV that still works. Why can't they make anything that lasts anymore??

I just purchased this particular model, so can't answer on THIS one, but I purchased this brand this time because of my satisfaction with the last Vizio I purchased. We have had it well over five years with NO problems and are still amazed with the quality. You can't go wrong with Vizio.

You won't need anything extra to make it work right away it is set up like a standard TV the setup wizard makes everything really easy the only thing is that if you want HD service you may need an updated cable box and an HDMI cable.

You will need to upgrade to Comcast's HD service if you want to watch TV programs in high definition (HD). They will give you a box with an HD connector on it. You will also need to buy an HDMI cable - to connect from the HD cable box to your Vizio HD TV. That is all you need for basic setup. After that, you can add "gravy" items like SOund bar, blu ray DVD player, etc.

You don't need anything extra, just connect the cable wires to back of tv just like you did with your old one. Only other suggestion would be to upgrade your service to HD since your tv is HD, you will get a much better picture.

If you are paying for HD programming, the Comcast box should have an HDMI port. Buy the cheapest HDMI cable you can find, and run it from the Comcast box to your Vizio. Picture and sound will be amazing (and easy).
