    Trying to compare a Sony XBR6 37 inch 60HZ TV to a Samsung A630 40
    inch 120 HZ TV.

    I am going to use the TV for watching Bluray movies and HDTV cable
    sitcoms/ movies. Can people please provide some insight into the
    difference in these two TVs and the technologies 60 Hz vs 120Hz?

    I don't think I am noticing much difference at all and I am told the
    Sony XBR6 has deeper balcks and better colors.

    Someone wrote "120Hz HDTVs are more a benefit when using a Blu-Ray
    player with content that is 1080p/24. Since 24 is a multiple of 120,
    there is no 3:2 pulldown required, so you don't see any "jittery-ness"
    caused by the repeated frames when you do 3:2". I am not sure what
    this means.

    Thanks

    Unless they had to build your home *around* your TV
    or knock out a wall to bring it in, you will NEVER see any difference.
    HD is over-sold hype for the gullible.
