1080p


ACHTUNG!!!
Alles touristen und non-technischen looken peepers!
Das machinkontrol is nicht for gefengerpoken und mittengrabben. Oderwise is easy schnappen der springenverk, blowenfusen, undpoppencorken mit spitzensparken. Der machine is diggen by experten only. Is nicht fur geverken by das dumpkopfen. Das rubber necken sightseenen keepen das cotton-picken hands in das pockets. So relaxen, und vatchen das blinkenlights.
Now that we have the warnings out of the way, I am now the proud owner of a new 52" LCD 1080p television set, one of the acclaimed Samsung 650 series. I finally have a monitor with which I can view the full capabilities of my high def combo player, as my former television was a DLP only capable of 1080i (which is effectively equivalent to 720p).

Just don't ask me how I got it into my apartment by myself.

So, I checked out this 120 hz thing that has been all the rage. The basic idea was up the refresh rate to eliminate motion blur on LCD sets and smooth out the discrepancy between film's 24 frames per second and video's 30 (judder). The result is really weird. At times one is blown away by the naturalness of the appearance and motion. On the other hand, it also happens to look more like video than it does like film, which can be quite jarring.

Unfortunately, there are moments when the mode causes artifacts in the image (usually movement + vertical lines). These artifacts are acknowledged in the television's instruction manual so they're not endemic to my set. And in some cases, the very texture of the film keeps there from being much improvement. It can not be used indiscriminately, although in most cases the artifacts aren't so intrusive.
