I got the Sharp 5034 Class 491234 Diag LED 1080p 120Hz HDTV at BB for $399 last week.

Is this worth spending $50 more than the Sharp?

my brother got this same TV at walmart last weekend only with 120hz for the same price for the pre-black friday sale. they put 120hz in their ad, and clearly that was wrong, but decided to give it to him for that price!

Thanks

For all debating between 60 hz and 120 hz
And Smart and non Smart

Both are not so significant as the hype is.
Roku can make a TV smart, evaluate if you really need all those and I don't know what will be missed in 60 hz compared to 20 hz.

Compare it at Wal-Mart, I liked this better, also reviews on amazon and wal-mart seems good.
Walmart return is better

Also this will give you time to think till 18 Dec, that's the tentative store pick up date for me

good deal.. but 60Hz is ancient




well "natural look of film" is actually 24Hz and Blu-Ray is encoded from the studio at 24Hz... sooo using your logic, 60Hz is terruble as well

in fact, ideally you want 240Hz since its a multiple of 24Hz and will eliminate judder/pulldown... 60Hz is actually interpolating the frames from the original source.. so when you say that 60hz is better than 240hz, you are just being subjective/biased and not scientific in your conclusion

stating that 240hz has interpolation and 60hz doesnt is just completely wrong and untrue
Yes, 240Hz is the best of both worlds, but we're talking about budget TVs and you don't HAVE to get a 120Hz TV to get a good TV. I think people just see a bigger number and scoff at the 60's just because. I shouldn't have brought 240Hz into the discussion because, you're right, it's ideal being divisible by 24Hz.

What's frustrating is TVs, regardless of refresh rate, can have interpolation, smoothing and anti-blur settings that can make things even more confusing. So while interpolation may happen on 60Hz TVs, when I turn "cinesmooth" off, it disables that awful soap opera/home video look. Sure it's crisper and smoother, but it looks terrible imho.

Then there's the issue of interlacing versus interpolation. From what I understand (and it's not a whole lot), 60Hz TVs interlace

Other than that, your post is far more accurate than mine.

*edit* I wanted to point this out as well, note what I bolded. This is where 120Hz+ TV marketing claims to make the picture sharper, but it fabricates a new frame between frames to give you that home video look. Straigth 60Hz pulldown doesn't seem to do that, but again this can all be confusion between rates and settings:

"American TVs have displayed 30 (actually, 29.97) frames per second and functioned at 60Hz since time immemorial. It's not really a problem, because between interlacing and frame pulldown, the process doesn't attempt to add information to the picture. It's simply converting it to function on the TV, because it wouldn't work otherwise. 1080p60 is the current high-end standard for HDTVs, and no commercial media exceeds that resolution or frame rate. In fact, many movies on Blu-ray even turn the frame rate down and display 1080p24, or 1,920-by-1080 video at 24 frames per second, to make the footage look as close to film as possible. The various refresh rate-increasing technologies on HDTVs destroy that effect."

LG's TVs are all native 60 hz. They get to 120 hz with the TruMotion feature, just like Samsung does with whatever theirs is called.

Most every recommended TV settings you'll find online, will tell you to turn this feature off, so your 120 hz is essentially a 60 hz anyways. Only time you might want it is for sports. Definitely not for gaming -- introduces more lag.

The hz obsession is a testament to the TV manufacturer's marketing prowess.
I don't think this is completely true. The 5400/5700 information and a few others suggest they handle 5:5 pulldown, so they actually do use 120hz panels in higher models (but not the 5200.) But I believe the 5700 and others still include TruMotion on top of that which, as you said, should be turned off.

The problem is their purpose has gotten confused. You want a true 120hz TV to prevent juddering when watching 24p movies. That's about it.

TruMotion/AutoMotion/interpolation is attempting to fix the motion blur that all LCD/LED TVs suffer from, but it often looks terrible and is also used to confuse buyers with the marketing hype.

You can have 60hz panels with interpolation and the soap opera effect, and you can have 120hz panels with interpolation and the soap opera effect. You can also have 120hz panels without interpolation. The only thing the 120hz panel will help you with (for the time being) is watching 24p movies. 120hz doesn't mean less motion blur or input lag or anything else, it just means no juddering during movies (performance should be the exact same while watching TV.)

When people say get 120hz for sports, what they actually mean is get a TV with interpolation for sports.

I got the Vizio E500i-A1 (50" SMART TV - 120Hz) for $449. I think LG makes Vizio and LG is supposed to be the better brand. So far I'm happy with the Vizio, any insight if LG would be a better choice?
Both are great prices!
LG does not make Vizio.
LG is a South Korean Corporation that dates back to 1950s while
Vizio is an American Company, a fairly new company that recently started up in California in early 2002

Actually, Vizio;s parent company is a Taiwanese company, but they use the Vizio name here in America. Most of the world's panels are made out of S.Korea or Taiwan, even Sony gets their panels from Samsung, but I don't believe LG makes the panels for Vizio.

Finally a post about 120/240Hz vs 60Hz (refresh rates) that isn't laughable. Thanks for posting this, and to everyone else, don't bother reading any posts prior to this one in this thread regarding refresh rates.

Hi I am in the same boat as yours.
Best Buy guys came yesterday to deliver it and as soon as they plugged in the screen showed big cracks.

At the back of the TV I saw BESTBUY sticker....It concerns me that SHARP made something cheap for BESTBUY only.

On bestbuy site I noticed that one of the Answers mentions that it is an INSIGNIA TV rebranded as SHARP specially for BESTBUY. If that is the case LG must be better.

INSIGNIA TV rebranded as SHARP specially for BESTBUY -

I don't think that's possible.

Agree it could be a TV for BF only, so less components etc..

With LG, there are 40,47 and 50 versions of the same model, at Amazon and WM both, so this is could be standard TV. Also has good reviews.

Also through cashback sites at WM online you are looking at less than $50 difference...

Is BB one Sharp Aquos?

I picked up the Vizio for my folks and once calibrated I was pretty impressed since I'm a plasma only person.

I picked up the LG 55LN5100 (BB Exclusive) from Best Buy on black friday for $500. I haven't received it yet so I'm not sure how much I'll like it. I feel a little uneasy because of some complaints I've read on the forums. How would this model compare to that? I have a Walmart $10 giftcard, which would bring this down to $438.

Any comparison between these two models?
