    Try asking this in the LCD forum, you may get a better response there.

    Are TV's that don't support 60Hz even made these days?
    There is no doubt the Samsung will as will any LCD screen

    There are still 50Hz only displays knocking around - one of the high-end DLP rear pros reviewed (a Sim 2 I think) recently didn't support 60Hz 480i inputs ISTR.

    There is also a difference between 60Hz and NTSC compatibility. Some TVs accept 60Hz RGB or component inputs but don't have NTSC decoders for example - so wouldn't display NTSC composite or s-video in colour, though they would usually display PAL 4.43 60 and RGB/Component 60 in colour.
