    Review: Samsung D8000 Smart TV 55-Inch

    Overall the reviewer says the Samsung D8000 Smart TV is a nice television - however the Smart TV element leaves something to be desired (mainly because web browsing is poor). Review: Samsung D8000 Smart TV 55-inch - NDTVGadgets.com

    Here's a review of the Samsung UN55D6400 55 inch smart TV. This model doesn't come with a full web browser:

    Maybe its just me but I don't like "120hz" or higher televisions. The fact that it is basically making up frames which don't actually exist sort of blows my mind. I understand the algorithms it uses to fill in the in-between frames of the true 60hz signal. But, many of the tricks movie producers and programmers employ to create depth are unraveled because of it and results is a distracting lack of depth. Sure, I think its great for watching sports but that's about it. Plus, buffering / lag is inherit with this technology making gaming on such as screen undesireable without the ability to shut it off.

    I think the best thing is for a TV to have a switch to turn on the 120HZ function when preferred (such as for football games) - and then turn it off (go back to 60HZ for ordinary programming). I think some of the better models have this ability to switch the 120HZ function on and off.

    I agree but this functionality should be toggled by a single button on the remote, instead of a a series of buttons presses to navigate menu settings. This is something I have yet to see in any television to date.
