WalMart's Samsung 55" LED - 240hz OR 120hz?

Postby bobbosru » Wed Nov 27, 2013 7:42 pm

Hey all.

Really confused on this one.

Until I get wind of when the Amazon 55 Vizio deal is going to be... The 55 smart Samsung is my target at WM.

The adscan shows 240hz... suggests 120hz. I think it's a deal if it's the 240.

Can anyone help me out? Also take the amazon tip too. Assuming that's a random Friday surprise.

Samsung doesn't advertise actual refresh rates on their televisions. Instead, they use a made-up metric they call "Clear Motion Rate (CMR)". So, Samsung says that this television has a CMR of 240, and some store ad listings mistakenly list this as 240 Hz. From observation it seems that Walmart web site item pages contain the actual refresh rate, so I suspect that the television is actually 120 Hz.

For more information about CMR and why television manufacturers use these made-up metrics, please see the article linked to in this forum post:

they probably arent going to know at your wm either because i heard the TV specialist at our wm tell someone that the human eye couldnt tell the difference so there was no reason to post anything above 120
Because there's only one You!!
