Does anybody know the TRUE specs and features of the 2012 Samsung ES6580 series TV? I have searched everything on the internet to find conflicting information in the few areas that I can even find anything.
LCDtvbuyingguide.com has a review of the TV and comparison to its "one-notch below" model the ES6500. However, I don't know if what they say about the TV is actually true. They say it is a 240Hz set with 480Hz Clear motion, and most important to me, they say it has Micro Dimming. Here is the link: http://reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/...n55es6580.html
I cannot find this information anywhere else to confirm, and in fact, other sources say it is a 120Hz set and do not mention Micro Dimming.
Can anyone confirm what it has, especially if you own one? I can get one of these for $100 more than the 6500, but if it doesn't have 240 or Micro Dimming, I don't see any differences between the two sets (aside from 2 extra pairs of glasses included)
Bump - has anyone figured out if the 6580 is dual core?
I found this on a third party website -
Dual Core Processor
There is a dual core processor included in this model but only for signal processing and Smart TV, it does not include the new Smart TV interaction feature, nor a front facing camera.
But I can't find anything on the Samsung website. It seems to me like dual core could become useful in the future as networked functions advance.
A dual processor can easily be used anytime two different functions are being used on the TV. Such as recording a live progranm while going to the internet for a Smart TV function. I think what you found was only some other examples of independent functions that can use dual processors.
Essentially they are the same TV. The ES6580 is a model made for online channels only. It's the same as the ES6500 but instead includes the skype camera and 4 pairs of 3d glasses (the ES6500 has two pairs). I hope this help.
