Hi, I am looking to buy this the Samsung LN52C530 today.But it is a 60HZ LCD.Some reviews say that it supports Blue Ray at 1080P/24Fps other reviews say it doesn't.
I am confused:confused:
If it does, great!!! But if it doesn't, How will that effect the picture when viewing on my 60HZ TV?
Very confused, want to get this TV but if picture is gonna be compromised I might hold off.
thnx

All HDTVs will "downgrade" to 24hz from 30hz, so yes it will ....can you say "overkill" ?
Anything over 60hz like 120/240hz is a marketing gimmick unless you are using your HDTV as a PC monitor to play games, HDTV companies are constantly trying to fool the public into thinking they need something they don't so they can jack up the price of their sets as an improvement. To tell you the truth a 720p set using a upconverting DVD player is more than enough in terms of picture quality over whatever 480i CRT set they were using before. 1080p sets will only benefit if you are using a Blu-Ray play or hooked up to a PC via HDMI.
