LN37B650 60HZ or 120HZ

I find this very interesting and disturbing! If you look at CNET, Best Buy, Amazon among others you will see that the specs on the TV are 1920 x 1080 @ 120HZ. I purchased this TV and see that information is incorrect. The MANUAL along with the BACK of the TV states 60HZ?? I spoke with someone and they stated that it had to do with the frequency/incoming signal. What does that have to do with anything? I'm sure the price I paid for this TV was based on 120HZ not 60HZ. I'm a little upset.

askleash,

The panel is a 120Hz and the television itself is 120Hz. I think what you're seeing on the back of the television is the Hz of electricity measurement of the power supply.

What page of the manual are you referring to?

When i turn my TV on it shows on the top of screen 1920x1080@60hz also page 67 in manual shows the same. I apologize if i'm misinterpreting this.

askleash,

That's the INFO bar. It's just showing you what the resolution and Hz. rating of the incoming signal. Not all signals broadcast at 1080 (such as DVD, or VHS, and so forth), so it's just telling you what the incoming resolution is before the television processes the signal.
