    Folks don't seem to understand the difference between refresh rate and panel.

    I see it as customer's cheating - juggling by words without define them clearly

    Am I correctlyi reading it as: 120 Hz refresh rate apply to parameters of input signal [FPS] and the TV accepting 120 Hz and converting it to 60 Hz of refreshing frames by the panel ?

    The offering is worded improperly. It should say: 60Hz panel, 120 refresh rate. The panel is 60Hz, the TV's processor gooses that up to 120. A lot of offerings on Amazon are worded improperly. What you really want to see in a TV is at least a 240 refresh rate, I think.

    then I don't see any good in it - it's the panel's refresh rate [60 Hz] what affecting your/my eyes
    regardless what input FPS or TV processor do [say 240 Hz]

    Well, a set with a 120 refresh rate can be adjusted to get rid of judders, but a 240 refresh rate set (with a 120Hz panel) will probably not need any adjustments. Naturally, the 240 sets cost more.

    the idea is get more expensive panel with high refresh rate, as the rate accepting by our eyes
    the panel is source of flickering and cannot employ CPU's high rates

    Right, but as you said, the 240s are more expensive.

    Any increase of refresh rate for a panel does require increase money for R&D and manufacturing

    Kinda makes me think, why didn't they just go with 120Hz panels in the first place?
