@mb: well to be honest i used to read up on it and there are conflicting accounts. but it seems like most things, everyone is different. but for me and at least my circle of friends, while we may be able to see a difference after 80hz, we cant see a difference past 120hz. while it may not be a gimmick to everyone, i just see it as another reason to needlessly jack up prices on displays for these increasingly minor enhancements
well what have you used to try and see past 120 hz?
A tv with "800 Hz YO!" functionallity?
or a gaming monitor with 144 hz?
