Are you retarded? Answer is no and question is why would you ever want a lower refresh rate?

well I was under the impression that 120hz looks very strange somehow and that alot of people hate it, and that many 120hz tvs are made so you can turn that feature off. Maybe im wrong.

It's really funny when someone makes such an aggressive and condescending comment, but then turns out to be wrong.

Here is a guide written about selecting a TV for gaming:

https://www.reddit.com/r/PS4/comm...ers_guide/

I've pasted the relevant part below:


Refresh Rates!

First of all, the mother of all misleading information is regarding 60hz, 120hz, 240hz, (and 600hz which is completely different, but I'll get back to that) etc. Almost everyone is universally suggesting get "atleast 120hz." This isn't entirely a great idea. First of all, 120hz and 240hz are not native refresh rates. In fact, they're not technically refresh rates. That's a simple way of saying that there are usually motion correction settings available to the viewer. These motion settings are awful for gaming and buying a 120hz TV will do nothing but give you input lag (among other issues like haloing) and worsen your gaming experience so long as you aren't privy to the fact that you can turn these options off.

Well, what is Input lag? The previously mentioned motion settings are meant for predictable sources like films and TV shows. There is a steady stream coming into the TV that the hardware can parse and "know" what comes next. In other words, one frame comes into the TV and with the next frame on its way, the TV can decide what frame might be best to go in between these two and it creates that artificial image to place in between the two frames in order to "smooth" the movement.

Why is this awful for games? Well, it's simple. There isn't a steady predictable stream of frames coming into your TV for it to "predict" what will happen next quickly enough. So, you tilt the analog stick right, and what the TV does is it delays your image, gathers the first frame and the following frame registered from your tilt, creates the artificial image, then finally shows you the product of that button press at a delayed response.

Besides gaming, these motion correction settings can be pleasing to some viewers as it smooths out movement for television shows and movies. I'm one of the viewers that finds it utterly unbearable, but it's subjective, I guess. I think it looks horrendous, but we'll stick with "subjective."

If you feel you must get a 120hz or 240hz TV, please make certain when gaming that you turn off Motion-flow, Auto-motion plus, Motion smoothing, Cinema Smooth, de-judder, de-blur, or whatever it might be called on your particular brand of television.

It's even funnier when someone posts a reference to reddit as a credible link ^_^

Hahahahahahh. I stopped reading at the part where they said "120hz and 240hz are not native refresh rates". Yes. There are 120 Hz refresh rate TVs so this kid is as clueless as you.

Sigh. Losing the argument, so he changes the subject.

Your original post was, "Are you retarded? Answer is no and question is why would you ever want a lower refresh rate? "

Here are your answers -

QUESTION 2: Why would you ever want a lower refresh rate:
ANSWER: In many cases (including this cheap RCA), 120hz in not native, and gaming performance suffers unless you can shut off the motion interpolation. That's the answer. Feel free to present any evidence or arguments that contradict this. I assume you don't have anything that will contradict this, so you will try to change or re-frame the conversation and make another attack rather than just gracefully accepting that your question was ignorant.

QUESTION 1: Are you retarded?
ANSWER: I can't speak about OP. But you seem to be presenting yourself that way my friend.laugh out loud
