Clear Motion 1200

Clear Motion Rate 1200

A Clear Motion Rate of 1200 is the ultimate level of motion-clarity for Samsung LED TVs. LED TVs with this CMR can display action-packed movement with superior sharpness, clarity and contrast. Clear Motion Rate was developed to accurately measure how well an LCD or LED TV can depict fast-moving images. Previously, motion-clarity was calculated by the frame refresh rate alone. But CMR offers a more complete measure by calculating 3 factors: frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology

Micro Dimming Ultimate

Micro Dimming Ultimate

Experience incredible picture contrast, color and detail with Micro Dimming Ultimate. By maximizing the contrast between lights and darks, Samsung's Micro Dimming technology displays a picture that is as true-to-life as possible. Our innovative technology scans zones across the image and adjusts brightness to deliver deeper dark tones and brighter whites. It also eliminates the "halo" effect and image distortion that can happen with diffused lights. The Ultimate version of this technology optimizes the quality to new heights by scanning 2x the number of zones in the image. The result is a crystal-clear picture with realistic, vivid detail and accurate color reproduction.

5.0 out of 5 stars TV will keep you happy until 4K is perfected & prices lowered April 5, 2013
By Concerned Consumer
Size Name:55-Inch
*Updated on 6/16/13 to reflect upgrade to 60"*

Overall: I have had this TV series for about 3 months now. I am VERY pleased with the purchase. The previous ES8000 model was plagued with cloudiness, banding--both gone in F series. Flashlighting is minimal on this set and improved over the ES series. I needed a LED TV upgrade and was on a budget ($2500 OTD/with tax) that didn't place me in the local array dimming technology zone(best type of TV right now). Plasma's are too reflective for my environment and the extra heat is unwanted (check out the Samsung 8500 though, sounds wonderful).

Right away I noticed how solid the TV itself felt. IF I had to do it over again, I would definitely recommend the 55"(or 60" I have now) F8000 for others to buy over the ES8000. Just ensure you pay get the best deal for it as the MSRP is overpriced. For ES8000 owners...I wouldn't upgrade. No way. This TV will hold me over until 4K's are on the market for awhile, helping perfect them and lower price.

Be wary of some of these random 1 star reviews, as many users do not even own the F series TV! Or they had an issue because they didn't have the right settings configured. I feel this TV rates 5 stars as I believe this tech is at it's "ceiling" and there is minimal room for improvement using edge lit tech.

For those who wish the short and simple, thats it! Keep reading for indepth review.

Current FIXABLE problems with firmware 11.04:
-Game mode input lag is MUCH worse than PC mode. Also both modes have Smart LED disabled(great feature for PQ)
