Idk if it's just me, but when I play PS3 on a 60hz tv, i DO notice some lag/refresh issues. Cousin has a 46 inch Samsung LCD, and when playing Black Ops i notice it the most.

I have a 42 inch Samsung LCD, but 120hz, and i like it much better. Played all kinds of PS3 games, including FPS extensively, like MW1, MW2, Black Ops, Medal Of Honor, and Battlefield 3, and never notice any issues.

When i get a new TV in my room, i'll probably go at least 46 inches and 240hz tho.

well of course the higher the GHz the better it's gonna be, but personally, i have a 1080p, 60GHz, 37 inch samsung LCD and i've never noticed a single lag issue.

I'm almost definitely gonna get something with a refresh rate of at least 120/240Hz and a 5ms or less response time.

I don't trust the 60Hz LCDs for gaming...particularly fighting games. I'm a committed Tekken player and I had a bad experience with lag at a tournament so 60Hz/LCD is pretty much outta the question for gaming.

Yeh, they're a solid brand.

Looking at a Samsung - 40" Class - LED - 1080p - 120Hz - HDTV right now on BestBuy but one thing I forgot to mention is that I'm looking for a TV with the "Game Mode" function as well

I want a bigger TV, but I need other things. :eh:

LED in the 60-70" range. My 46" seems small :blink:

I could see that being a big problem. It's like when I go on vacation( yes I watch TV everywhere) and have to deal with SD or small [expletive]ty TV's :cry:.

I've already told myself not to get anything smaller than 60". Got a 46" right now. 70" might be too big for my living room.

definitely LED. Trying to save on power. LED runs cooler too.

I have a 52 inch sony bravia 1080p although someties it feels like there is too much going on on the screen at the same time

Id say a 40' 42' is just about right you dont want to have a huge screen like when watchig a movie
