Excelent! The review i've been waiting for. Can you please just tell me something about this set (or any other 120hz set):
Can i link my pc, via hdmi to the set, and use a customresolution 120 fps unique frames refresh. Meaning can i for instance use the hdmi1.3 link from my pc running a 1920x1080@120hz and get that displayed on the samsung? because 120 frames per second is the Holy Grail number for many things (next one is 240), and to play simulations or games at 120 frames per second is way way better (i use a sony crt for dat) than to play at crap 60fps locked in common lcds.
Please someone reply to this longlasting doubt i have about 120hz LCDs... Can they display real 120 unique frames from any input or is it just a gimmick that crossfade/morphs a 60fps into 120fps by generating inbetween artificial frame?
Just download the menu from Samsung "global download site", there you will find all possible framerates for VGA or DVI (HDMI/DVI-Port set to PC). It shoud be tough to find a graphic-card that supplies 120Hz at 1920x1080, but much more interesting to me would be the xvYCC support: there is no graphic-card out now, but soon with HDMI 1.3 (i.e. Intel 4 series onboardgrraphic announced for August running two digital displays).
thanks for your solid tests, but this time I`m enforced to criticize:
- there is no 100Hz on sony W4000!!!
as turned out in your summary to be better than samsung??? (cant understand anyway since sonys motionflow failed so often in the past loosing signal...)
- as posted before, just use HDMI/DVI-Port set to PC for gaming
- whats up with xvYCC (x.v.color) test
(could be important for video and photo and gaming enthusiast)
-missing statement for 3D impression / subjective sharpness and colordeepness
on super-clear-panels/colorfilter (thats for me the main reason to be better than others and strike up against plasma!!!)
-no words on photo-menu
-whats with the big samsung-problem: speakers/sound
Personally, I will wait for the 40" LED-model with integrated DVB-C (hdtv) tuner as sold in the us since one year.
Thanks again for your hard work
