@virtual1one: These won't get much better than this until they have a 6 movie set with the Hobbit trilogy out.

@thiney49: Better wait for the next media format though. I want my 48fps for The Hobbit!

@fredwallace18
Can you tv not 3:2 the frame ratio... THink u might want to upgrade that...

@usedp8ntballer: to the average moviegoer thats fine. but to anybody with a mild interest in epic movies, worldwide blockbusters, or fans of Tolkien its worth it to eventually chip in for the extended edition. tons of extras, tons.

@fredwallace18: Don't hold your breath. When the 4K home format comes together (no firm time-frame on that AT ALL), there's no guarantee it'll even BE 48fps.

In the consumer electronics area, no matter when you purchase the thing you want, you'll have paid too much. Not enjoying something you like is waste of time.

you could technically have a 48 fps movie even on your current 1080p 720p sets.

frames per second, its how many frames are show on screen per second. refresh rate is more relevant then resolution. which is why vsync exists to cap frame rate to your tv or monitor's refresh rate otherwise when the framerate exceeds refresh rate you get screen tearing.

but seeing as almost every tv on the market nowdays is 60hz refresh rate or better your pretty much good for anything under 60fps. we are currently limited by source material.........current tv and movies which are generally shot at 24 fps.

a few exceptions out there like some soap operas, which is why they look different because they were captured at a higher frame rate.
