Question

Location: Australia
Budget = Up to $3,000 AUD (Prefer around $2,000 to $2,500).
Seating distance = About 3 to 3.5 meters.
Placement limitations = Will be using the included Stand and having it placed on a Credenza/tv cabinet.
Uses and sources = 2 dimensional video, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, Xbox One, PS4, Bluray, PS2, Wii, (For Gamecube games) etc.
Number of users: Primarily 1 person, secondarily 2 people, rarely 3 to 4 people.
Room lighting = Dunno, 2x15~ watt cool white mini spiral fluro overhead with a diffuser together in a single ceiling fan?
Size of display: 50" to 60"
Requirements: Must feature 100hz interpolation or 200hz with blank frame insertion interpolation, must not be curved.


I'm primarily looking at Samsung displays because I have never owned a different brand of LCD TV or computer monitor (Except back in the CRT days [90's]). My current display is the Samsung LA46A650A1F display which is from 2006 and has started to act up (constantly rebooting as soon as I flick the power on on the wall outlet) so I'm looking to replace it. My parents have a Series 7 display that is about 1 to 2 years newer than mine.

I've noticed that my TV has 100hz interpolation while my parents has 200hz interpolation. I've also noticed that I much prefer the 100hz interpolation that my TV has as it retains a similar feel to the source material while the 200hz mode on the newer TV introduces the dreaded soap opera effect, I also assume the 200hz display is technically more prone to introducing 'obvious' artifacts because it is inserting more "fake/generated" frames between the source frames. I'm aware my TV's 100hz interpolation introduces a ton of artifacts when set to High but the motion smoothing it self, regardless of artifacts, is very similar to the source material which outweighs the negatives of artifacting.

I'm currently looking at the Samsung UA55JU6400W but I don't know if it does the Black Frame Insertion. LED Clear Motion is mentioned in the Manual with the clause that states " This function is not available on certain models in specific geographical areas.", which isn't helpful in letting me know if the JU6400 supports it or not lol.

Anyways, if you have suggestions of other brands, links to reviews of this TV model, want to share your opinion or something, please do. Any and all information you guys have on this display is appreciated. I can't find many reviews of this TV, there are a few reviews of the American JU6300 model and JU6500 model though (Neither of which are available in Australia).

tl;dr looking to get the Samsung UA55JU6400W display, provide feedback/opinions for me please.
