Thread: Screen refresh rate settings.

Screen refresh rate settings.
I saw an advert today for a TV that runs at 200 Hz. It said the higher the Hertz the more fluid the motion looks on the screen.
So this got me wondering if my computer screens could be adjusted to a higher setting, the highest setting I found was 75 Hz.
My question is this. If my screens have been running at 60 Hz, will turning them up to 75 Hz make the life expectancy of my screens shorter? JR

I have a 15" CRT monitor and it supports upto 85hz bt have set it up at 65HZ in monitor settings and as well as in the graphics card Geforce 8600gt OCed edition ie Nvidia Control Panel settings at 65hz too. When i used to set it at 85hz the screen use to just go blank so if your monitor supports higher frame rates and have a good card it might make viewing better...

My Pc runs fine at 75Hz so I guess I will keep it at that. Thanks for all your replys. JR

If you do any video capture off your screen, you want the lower refresh rate. The screen capture programs usually work with max. 30fps, and the higher your screen rate, the choppier your screen capture result. That is especially visible in straight line transitions like e.g. fly-ins in a Powerpoint presentation.
Here is an example of a video capture of a PP presentation. The fly-in writing is completely smooth in the PP presentation - but not in the video. http://www.vimeo.com/3823015
