this is about as basic as you can get. ive seen the sets on sale on different occasions, but im not certain a base model like this would be dropping significantly by then. of course, its only two weeks from now, and considering how marketing goes, well, we cant anticipate it.
I've read some of the articles and posts about CMR and still haven't a clue what = good and what the drop off is. I'm hoping the 240 is a good rating. Samsung takes into account three different variables and bases the # off their rating. What I couldn't find is what the actual screen refresh rate is for the EH6000. I think it's 120GHz, but I'm not 100% sure.
We don't need a top of the line TV, but I don't want something super cheap either. I want decent blacks, no motion issues and decent color. I know plasma might be a smart choice, but honestly as much letter boxing there is on Netflix and gaming HUDs in Cod or BF3 I worry about burn in.
Thanks guys for the help
the EH6000 series, if you look at amazon, shows the CMR is at 120hz native, but can be increased to 240hz, a little research came to this page from samsung,http://www.samsung.com/us/article/clear-motion-rate-a-new-standard-for-motion-clarity?bvaction=viewall
this website shows you the 'differences' of the new CMR feature based on different manufacturers, and divulges its true nature.http://hdguru.com/beware-of-phony-lcd-hdtv-refresh-rates/7726/
under the samsung section, it shows that the EH6050 showing a 240hz refresh rate, but clearly shows in numerous pages that the EH6000 series have gone to the 120hz. the link provided on his page directs you to the Amazon.com website towards the samsung UN46EH5000
series. despite being the same panel, i believe the refresh rates are different. i cant confirm this, but based on crutchfields site, heres are the specs,
at the end of the day, in my opinion, it boils down to what material you are concerned with, may it be sports, playing video games, fast movies, etc. how large of a panel, and how distinguishable the problems would come about given these variables.
personally, id just consider 60hz as a baseline and call it a day. of course, with the price range of the EH6000 panels here in the US, it fell within MY budget.
to each his own. some will be frustrated by 2 hdmi ports, some no swivel base, some smart apps, and some, well, will complain just about everything.
for what its worth its got what i needed, i dont need more than 2 ports a gorgeous display panel, and a realistic expectation. and at the end of the day, i think thats what matters most.
