The d64 and the d82 are the exact same tv.. exept the d82 runs at 120hz. It is $300 more.... is it really that noticable. I was watching soccer at the store on thie 82 and it was beside the 64 and looked close for 15 full minutes... and saw no difference in motion. Is there really a difference or can u only notice it if u add the led lighting and more contrast...?\

Well there or more differences then just that. I am surpised you did not notice a difference. I guess the true test would be to go back and watch a plasma VS LCD, as plasma's refresh much faster than any LCD made.

the plasma looks different from the lcd right off the bat. But when comparing a 60hz lcd with a 120hz lcd there's no difference at all.... They say 120hz eliminates motion blur..... no it doesn't. I was watching 3 tvs with 120hz.... hockey was on.. they all had the same blur 60hz does.

The 60-Hz refresh rate will not hurt you in any way. The new D64U's are quality sets that keep up with almost every other LCD out there. The D82U has been known to have banding problems while the 64's have been reported as mostly banding free. If it were my money I would go with the 64.

@Chris Cobb, what is banding anyway?

Banding is a phenomena where different sections "bands" of the TV have different brightness. For example a TV with three vertical bands may have the center third look very bright with the the left and right thirds of the screen being less bright, and likely different from each other.

I watch sports all of the time with our four LCD HDTV sets and have never seen any blur from fast motion. I am beginning to think this 'blur' accusation is nothing but crap.
