If you're not gaming, is 60Hz enough for an HDTV? Viewer Ash doesn't play games on his HDTV, and rarely watches sports, so would a 60Hz display be a good way to get a bargain? Watch the video to find out if you need to bump it up to 120Hz for a good picture.

Hmm yes by the end of the year everything will be 120hz. It's 2015 and 60hz is still the standard for anything.
"By the end of this year everything is going to be 120hz" - hahahaha, way to predict the future there. 2014 $450 42" TV's are still 60hz.

I got a 60HZ 1080p but does Hz REALLY matter for gaming? I have been playing some days on my xbox and It looks normal to me.

if the tv has 60 Hz and also a 24P mode then you have the capability to match the 24 frames per second exactly so what this guy is saying is bs. He did not listen to the question at all.

120htz is true 60htz where 60 native is split at 24....but NTSC is 24.9 frames anyway..........so meh, i just dont like motionflow so......why pay for for something you prob will disable anyway . the issue is if you run a product outside the tv/cable output something will seem off

I use XBMC on my Bravia 40 inches TV. The TV can do 60hz max, yet it accepts to sync the display to the content I watch, ie 24 Hz or even 1920x1080 @ 23.98Hz, progressive. I don't do gaming not 3D content, so I don't think I need 120 or even 240hz for anything.
