I don't know why this TV does not mention 120Hz

Most likely the refresh rate of the screen..

I would venture to say that most out there are fast enough, where it's not even worth mentioning.

Most likely just a scheme to make you think it has something important over others.

120 Hz is the screen refresh rate. The normal refresh rate is 60 Hz. !20 Hz gives you less bluring in scenes with fast movement, such as sporting events. If the Brochure does not mention 120Hz refresh rate, then the product not have it. The bluring of fast action is not a problem with plasma sets.

Oh, so that is the 120 Hz snake oil. Having a faster vertical rate than the speed of the incoming signal cannot help with fast motion, other than to make it seem jerkier by painting the same image twice every time.

No, they don't paint the same image twice. Remember, MPEG encoding includes a lot of information about motion in the scene, and the

120-Hz televisions use that to interpolate the motion in the time domain. It really does help reduce the visibility of motion artifacts.

The only problem i see with that claim is that it will take far more processing power than is available in the newest gamer extreme type PC. Adding about UD$ 4000 to the sales price, and they do not cost that much these days.
