Re: Good 120hz monitor?

Where did you get a TV and more specifically an IPS screen that has 120hz inputs? Are you sure its not 60hz with the post processing 120hz motion flow? my bad - its actually the american model thats 120hz - mine is 100hz its an LG50LA6210 - specs can be found at http://www.lg.com/za/tvs/lg-50LA6210...
