Hi im seeing alot of 60hz 3d tvs being offered. im was wondering wether or not to bite the prices are damn cheap. examples? http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sceptre-32-E325BV-FHDD/195277...

among some other offerings i been seeing. i thought u needed 120hz minimum for 3d etc.

im wondering if these are a good buy whats wrong whats bad whats good etc? anyone have any experience with these displays?

id be using a m18x with dual 6990s. i been building pc's all my lfie and my am3 motherboard just died on me. lived just past warranty.. im tired of building pc's so im going for one luxurious gaming rig which is the m18x and I want a 3d display above 27 inches. i saw this cheap and wondering if it would work with amdhd3d etc

Yes, 120Hz is the minimum for 3D Displays, you can have 3D on any Hz, but anything below 120 will make your eyes suffer a lot and would probably make seizures...

Maybe they were talking about 60Hz as for "each eye" 120 / 2 = 60.
Normal TVs with 120Hz is just an type of enhancement and is not real 120Hz, so maybe this TV doesn't have 120Hz enchancement, thus they not calling it an "120Hz TV"

You can always do more research on that TV or even read Reviews.

-Hope it helps! :)

There are others not on that list, but the best ones are on the list. Of all the available monitors, the Samsung 750 and 950 lines are by far the best due to offering displayport, which gives you 60hz (they list 60hz per eye in their method) at 1080p while HDMI 1.4a (the other supported connection) only allows 60hz per eye at 720p.

It's probably passive 3d in which case only needs to be 60hz. Passive 3d is cheaper and doesn't strain your eyes as much, however you lose some visual quality. I can't tell if that is a passive 3d tv as they don't state active or passive on that site.

i read thats 60hz is pretty unacceptable for gaming but its ok for movies, guess i gotta look for a 120hz+ display. honestly i think ill look into 3d capable plasmas as plasma has a pretty ultra high refresh rate.

The 600hz on plasmas won't allow 600fps, just saying.

The 60hz isn't the problem (60hz active is as it's 30 frames per eye which is vomit inducing) with passive each eye gets 60 frames as it's not alternating frames. Passive is much like the polarized 3d you get at theatres, the problem is you lose some pixels vertically. This can make some games with small text hard to read, but overall it's a smooth experience compared to active. Really you should go experience both types before making a decision.

the vomit inducing 30 frames per eye is not what i want and its made up my mind on not getting a 60hz 3d tv. i cant stand the idea of being limited fps wise also. i cant afford eye strain. ill get the highest refresh rate i can when its cheap.
