people mix up things about 120Hz
there are 3 ways of achieving that
A - the TV displays 120 images per second because it receives 120 from the source this is what you 'd get from a Computer. that is all good.
B - the TV displays 120 images per second even if it receives only 60 from the source. To achieve that it displays each image it gets from the source twice… that is all good as gaming goes abeit not on par with previous one.
C - the TV displays 120images per second because it calculates 1 frames by interpoling (meshing) for every pair of frames he receives from a 60Hz source and inserting that in between them.
for gaming on a TV
you want that your TV displays the picture as soon as possible after it got them from the source (input/display delay as low as possible)
you want that your TV has a clean 60/120/180/240/320/480/600 Hz refreshment with no artefacts and the pictures not blending into one another a good 60 Hz TV is better than a bad 120 Hz TV
you want to avoid 50Hz or 100Hz or 200Hz TV refresh while playing with a 60Hz source and 60 FPS game it will be asynchronous.
same goes with TV and movies when watching them (apart a few exceptions 24 fps / custom fps ) you’ll want to stick to 50/75/100/125/150/175/200 etc…(well explained in the post above)
ideally you ll want to avoid the above describe case “C” for 120Hz, tis this one responsible for all the bad rep of 120Hz but it is also the most frequent amongst TV sets,
system “C” means that you already have at least a minimum 2 frames of “input delay” since to display first frame from the source he need to mesh it with picture 1.5
and before he can do that he need to calculate image 1.5,
and before he can calculate image 1.5 it needs to have received image 2
so when you see meshed image 1 odds are the source is already feeding the TV with image 3 ( or even more)
The second problem is that depending on how well the meshing engine has been programmed sometimes things look crappier in 120Hz “overdrive” than they’d look in plain 60Hz left alone.
The third problem is that depending on how powerfull the CPU of your TV is and how well the meshing engine has been programmed the TV may need extensive amounts of time to finish the meshing calculations further increasing the already bad “input delay”
hope that ll help you choose a correct model,
hope that will help other getting their ideas straight when speaking about 120Hz.
The Best gaming monitor to date is a 180Hz CRT
Iiyama IIYAMA VISION MASTER PRO 512 22 Monitor Review - PCWorld
The best modern (flat and high contrast) gaming monitor to date is
Acer GD245HQ - DigitalVersus
as for TVs Most of the dudes that know whjat they speak about swear only by Panasonic plasma screens, that said they have drawbacks to and there are probably very good LCDs too.
I am affraid that most the TV sets you 've listed are not good gaming LCDs though.
