Review: Samsung 55UND8000 LED Smart TV
Andrew Robinson at Home Theater Review got his hands on the latest Samsung LED LCD TV that boasts a super-slim bezel, Smart TV features and 3D capability.
Here’s some of what he had to say:
Aside from its physical appearance the UN55D8000 is a 55-inch 1920×1080 display with a reported contrast ratio of 25,000,000:1 (Dynamic) and 240Hz refresh rate, though Samsung does tout the UN55D8000′s Clear Motion Rate (CMR), which they’ve attached a number of 960 to. According to Samsung, Clear Motion Rate goes beyond simple refresh rates (of which the UN55D8000′s 240Hz is already quite good) and takes into account three factors: panel refresh rate, image processing speed and backlight technology. Using an algorithm that somehow takes all of the above factors into consideration, Samsung has come up with a number or CMR for the UN55D8000 of 960. 960 what? According to Samsung, CMR determines the thinnest line the display is capable of displaying on a moving image, so the thinner the line the higher the CMR number and the better the motion clarity. Of course Samsung is the only manufacturer to use the “CMR standard” because, well, they made it up. The display itself uses LED backlighting though its LEDs are located along the left and right edges of the set, which allows the UN55D8000 to keep its slim physique.
