i have a question what would be better to use.....i have a 24 inch samsung lcd 1080p 60hz monitor....i bought my gf a 32 inch lg 1080p 120hz lcd tv...she doesnt want the tv anymore...something with the 120hz making everything look fake or something.i am using the samsung at the moment...should i switch to the tv instead as my computer screen...any pros or cons to using the tv or should i stick with the 24 monitor instead...im running phenom x4 3.4ghz/xfx 5850gpu...any suggestion?...thanks
For gaming the 24" is really optimal. You don't have to move your head all over. Plus you won't be playing a game at 120Hz on the TV. Your video card will still output 60Hz, the TV just has a motion enhancer thing that runs the screen at 120Hz which makes the image move smoother, and sometimes appear faster. I know what you are saying that it makes everything look fake. It bugs your eyes out a bit.
True 120Hz requires a dual link DVI cable. HDMI is really just single link DVI with audio. Stick with the 24" unless you are watching movies or doing multimedia like mhelm1 said.
i will be on my desk so probably 2-3 feet away...how does text images look on the screen...is it worse than a monitor....i dont watch movies on my monitor i usually hook it up to my projector so i can shoot it onto the wall...(720p) projector....so if i connected the tv to my computer im not gonnna get 120hz out of the tv even though im gonna be using hdmi cable?
A single DVI-D or HDMI cable connection operates at 60Hz.
120Hz PC monitors and 120Hz HDTVs operates differently.
As I stated before 120Hz HDTVs (and 240Hz too) does video processing to "improve video quality" and motion. This video processing causes a little bit of lag. A 120Hz PC monitor uses a dual DVI-D connection and each individual 60Hz connection basically sends data to half of the screen for better screen refreshes.
