Hi,

By forcing your laptop to a refresh rate of 120hz you're sacrificing the life span of your laptop. The recommended refresh rate of any display is 60hz that should work best for any display.

Here's another thread similar with your question.

thx for answer, but my laptop seems to support 120hz, because it has also 3D stereoscopic support (i read it is necessary for it). So even if it says it is supported, i shouldn´t use it? Because i heard that with higher refresh rate you have smoother gameplay and so on. But when i choose higher hz, it becomes darker(less bright). Any opinion please?
