    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me the comparisions between 100hz and 200hz, how much differnce will you really see between the 2?

    Just looking at a couple of Sony models and trying to decide?

    I found the 200hz a little too artificial. It was undeniably very smooth, but didnt look real and I dont think I'd probably use it that much if I went for it.

    the z4500 looks over processed and artificial if you put motionflow to max on films and some TV broadcasts but people are missing the point.

    You turn it on only for fast sports and it beats the sony w4500 hands down as there is no ghosting or smearing at all. I a not knocking the w4500 as it is a great TV

    You would not keep the same settings for different types of viewing but adjust to suit lighting and input. Its the same with motionflow.

    I took over an hour with both the w4500 and z4500 before deciding and the z was worth the extra.

    Checkout the z4500 thread for more info

    Take the time to play with the TV yourself - try John Lewis or Sony shops as they have the z set up and you will see.

    Take it from someone who owns a Z - its worth a viewing

    Good advice, main use is for playing PS3 watching everyday tv and the odd bit of internet surfing.

    Just trying to work out if the price difference is worth it really.

    The 'HDTVtest' review of the 40in Z4500 showed that it was able to resolve a full 1080 lines during fast motion when the 'standard' or 'max' settings were activated, as opposed to 650 lines for the W4500. So with sport etc. I think you would notice a difference, possibly also with the PS3. However motionflow is deactivated if you use the 'game' mode.

    I tend to put on game mode for online gaming and this disables the motion flow but the response of the Z is fantastic. Not saying the W is much different in this respect as you can use game mode on that as well.

    For offline gaming I switch the game mode off and put motion flow to max - call of Duty and Resistance 2 are simlpy stunning.

    As to cost, go on - you know you want to
