Re: Will using a higher refresh rate make a monitor wear out more quickly?
Its odd really.
With CRT monitors, I can see flickering at 60hz (hated it in school when they were set to this), yet most allow 75hz which is a lot better for the eyes and the flickering becomes less noticeable.
Yet if you are talking about an LCD monitor, because they work differently, and are progressive forms of screens. I don't notice any flickering at 60hz.
Unless of course, you are wanting to go 3D, in which case finding one that's 120hz is necessary these days.
