My sister recently bought a 32" Sanyo LED hdtv and I have to say in all honesty, it sucks. It takes a good 10 seconds for it to turn on. The colors are washed out and I spent what felt like hours tweaking her set so it would at least get "vivid" looking colors. She bought it because she was too cheap to get the Vizio version of a similar size set. I asked if she didn't want to take it back and spend the extra money but she wouldn't go for it. So I had to say, "Well you get what you pay for."
I'm too lazy for signatures... oh, okay not completely lazy.

There's more to what made the 60Hz set look blurry compared to the 120Hz. Very likely the 120Hz set had less jitter and lag than the one that didn't look so good. I have a Vizio 37" 60hz CFL LCD set that looks much clearer even during motion than my Westinghouse economy 120Hz "1080p LED backlit set.
Side by side the Vizio looks much better.
Vizio 32” 720p LCD HDTV (2 of them), Seagate 750GB SATA/300 7200RPM Hard Drive, SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual Digital HDTV Tuner, Kodak Theater HD Player, Acer Aspire One 10.1” Netbook, Philips Prestigo 8-Device Universal Remote, Asus Eee PC 900 Netbook with 1.6GHz Atom Processor, Philips Upconverting DVD Player with DivX and HDMI, Ashley Rock Axe Full Size Rockband and Guitar Hero Controller for PS2 and PS3, Philips Icon 5 Device Universal Remote, and a bunch of other carp.

My auto insurance is the biggest rip off in the world...until the hail storm came through last week; THEN I LOVED IT!! Buying it for a $250 TV? Yeah, I'd probably skip....but a $2000 LED? Uh, how long is my coverage?!?! They are profit centers - make no mistake - but whats wrong with profit? When did that become a dirty word? As long as the warranty has a good reputation, pays their claims on time and isn't terribly exclusive in what it covers - I'm in. The bigger issue here is that Sanyo sucks. Truly, just a garbage TV and anything else they put their brand on. It's a Wal Mart TV...and hey, WM sells some nice stuff now...but Sanyo has been in their stores forever. Right next to the DYNEX and WESTINGHOUSE...save your money, cut back on the MochaChocaYaYa's....get a Samsung.
Ask questions first. I was in an office store when a guy brought in his broken camera for a replacement. First, they said they might not be able to find the exact model, and second, the warranty was for the first camera, so the coverage was not extended to the replacement.
Like Lake Wobegon, but without the lake.

Ant attempt to view that content at any higher rate creates fake filler frames in-between the real frames. There is some sports content that looks great at the higher refresh. 120hz vs 60hz vs 30hz is a gimmick to sell TVs.
On that note if you do want to use it as a computer monitor, especially for gaming you're going to want 120hz.
It's also worth noting that for "instant replay" purposes in the home, that isn't considered as evidence for replays in football, as it is a "best guess" of what the frame between the two broadcast frames "might" be.
120hz does make scrolling text look better.
If you are curious if a TV can be used for 3d that is advertising 120Hz, you have to determine if it supports 120Hz input. Most 120Hz advertised TVs do not.
If it won't matter when I'm 90, it's no big deal.

Is that a deal breaker for you?
