    120 Hz tv's are sooo 2008.  The new hotness is 480Hz!  Not wasting any time in the new year LG is ready to unleash an ocular ecstasy...(or so they hope)!  Why does this matter to the average human?  Basically, the Hz number means how many images are displayed each second.  The goal LG hopes to attain with the 480Hz tv's are making movies and tv viewing smoother and more natural looking.  Movies at a movie theater are shot at 24fps.  Most people won't notice any slow downs in the movi...
