I was comparing the "HD" features of the Samsung TV models on one of the amazon product pages section called "Samsung LED TV Comparison Chart".

for example, scroll down about halfway: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN46EH6070-46-Inch-Blu-ray-Player/dp/B0083KGX1Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1353633873&sr=8-1&keywords=samsung+un46eh6070

most of the models say "Full 2D & 3D", about several of them simply say "Full 2D" and a couple of them just say "2D."

Should I take this into factoring when considering/comparing buying Samsung TVs?

What's the real differences between those terms regarding the "HD" performance/feature?

Although it's not a standard term, Full 2D in this case means "Full HD".
1080p is considered as a true, full HD (1920x1080). Looking at these models I can tell that just normal "2D" TVs are 720p (1280x720).

And yes you can spot a visual difference since the resolution is doubled. The difference becomes clearer as a size of a monitor becomes larger.
