I'm a bit confused and wanted to see who could shed some light on this issue.
I'm looking for a new monitor. I'm a sucker for that smooth-as-butter look that the 120Hz/Blu-Ray Playback boasts. In my searches I came across this one on NewEgg.
As I was scrolling through the specifications I came across the following section:
Vertical Refresh Rate
Analog: 50 - 122 Hz
Digital: 50 - 85 Hz
A differentiation between analog and digital... okay, I can accept that. But, what does that mean for my buttery needs? Does that mean I need to stick with Component? Or does the Vertical Refresh rate not really play into digital... or into the entire equation that makes up the 120Hz claimed refresh. OR, is it marketing gimmicks?
So I tried a search. As I was digging to understand what was going on here, I ran across some threads stating "LCDs Don't HAVE REFRESH!!!!!" and then others clarifying that there is still a measurable frequency that the monitor pulls frames from the graphics card.
Well... I don't know. Can anyone answer any of these questions? Bacon?
