Thread: Refresh rates

  1. #1
    Refresh rates
    Was just wondering why laptop screens are generally limited to 60hz refresh rates.
    Im sure I read somewhere that 75hz is the lowest recommended to avoid eye strain.
    Is it a limitation of TFT screens?

    LCD cells can hold a charge longer than a CRT phosphor, thus not needing a refresh rate as fast as CRTs.

    That recommendation is for CRTs only I would presume.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
