120 Hz vs 60Hz with silent blurays

Unread post by Gil1957 » Thu Nov 08, 2018 8:13 pm

I searched to see if this question was answered, but I couldn't find the answer on here.

I am thinking of getting a new 4K television. I noticed that some have refresh rates of 60 hertz and others have 120 hertz. I Youtubed to see basically what it was. My question here is do you notice a big difference on a silent bluray in the jittering between the 60 hertz and the 120 hertz? If the difference is minimal, then I will go with the lower priced tv. If it is very noticeable, then I will go with the 120 hertz.

Thanks for any advice on this matter.

It will be the same. The duplicated frames will still be there and held for the same amount of time.

You should also note that the 120Hz rate tends to make the picture look less film-like and more like videotape.
CURSES!

120Hz would look more like film, since there would be no 3:2 pulldown. Each frame at 24fps would display five times.
