Default Re: Anybody know why LCD's suffer from motion blur?

I would still get 120Hz if I were buying an LCD. But I won't.
This seems to be a very serious drawback. The two main failures of LCDs to-date have been poor black levels and motion blur. Future generations of LCDs will have greatly improved black levels by using locally dimmable backlighting; but apparently motion blurr is irremediably inherent to this type of display technology.

It might be far fetched, but I do wonder...
I agree with Ttone, it is much more noticeable on larger screens. This is not propaganda. If anything, the manufacturers may be exaggerating the benefits of faster response/refresh rates.
