STOP STOP STOP it already. I benefit from my 120hz M panel EVERY SINGLE DAY and I HAVE NEVER or PROBABLY NEVER WILL DISPLAY native 120hz content on it EVER!!!!!!!!!!!! I watch plenty of 4k at 24fps and it converts WONDERFULLY to 120hz with no 3/2 pulldown.

{quote}I'd like to make one comment about the 120 Hz feature. To the best of my knowledge, this feature is meant to display movies at their native frame rate (24 fps) -- exactly as the filmmakers intended it to look. Here's how:

A typical TV updates the image at 60 fps. If you try to show a 24 fps movie on a 60fps video display, each frame of the movie gets displayed for more than one frame of video. At 60 fps:

60 fps / 24 fps = 2.5 video frames per film frame.

Since you can't evenly divide the film frames into the video frames, you have to use a process called "pulldown" to evenly divide the film frames across the video frames. Here's what it looks like:

1 1 2 2 2 3 3 4 4 4

That's 4 frames of film as they are displayed on a 60fps device. Note that frame 1 gets two slots, but frame 2 gets three slots. So each frame of film is not on screen for exactly 1/24 of a second. In fact, frame 1 gets shown for 1/30th of a second and frame 2 gets shown for 1/20th of a second.

So it's not really 24fps. It's flopping between 1/20th and 1/30th as necessary to keep the frames synced and AVERAGING OUT to 24fps.

The beauty of 120Hz technology is that you can divide 24 into 120 evenly:

120 fps / 24 fps = 5 video frames per film frame.

So now your video frames look like this:

1 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 3 3 3 3 3 4 4 4 4 4

Notice how every frame of film gets exactly 5 frames of video at 120Hz? Guess what -- that's 24fps. EXACTLY. The way the filmmakers intended.

120 Hz technology is often advertised as providing "smoother" motion. This is true -- in smooth panning shots, the 3:2 pulldown process INTRODUCES JUDDER. At 120Hz, the judder does not get introduced, thus it is smoother.
so are we. hug
Geek spec wise, the M has more local dimming zones which should held better blacks. But that's on paper.



That's a moot point on 4k tv. The M series is not going to run 4K resolution at 120. If you want to run straight 1080p then sure the 120 might come into play. Why get a 4k tv then? No tv right now can run 4k @ 120.

If this were the M65, I would be all over it. The D series is cheap.

Should probably put model in title. I place little value in a short term gift card from Dell but this is a decent deal. Worth it to spend a couple hundred more for the M model IMO.

Among other things, the D has a 60hz panel which is a deal breaker for a screen this big.

Damn.... i was about to whip out the AMEX - if only it was an M. That would have been slick deal of the year - lol.

The D series is not worth the money. Thanks for the post anyway OP!

FYI I was able to get an M65 from Amazon last week at $1149 price matched from a Sam's deal. Much better deal IMO.
