Default LED TV (Clear Motion Rate)

Just bought a 46 inch samsung LED smart tv and im having difficulty trying to figure out this clear motion rate. I wanted to be sure that i was getting at least 120 Hz refresh rate but samsung are calling it clear motion rate. It tells me my tv is 240 CMR and i asked the retailer to be sure if it matches 120 Hz refresh rate, which he said "yes".

Does anyone else understand this new technology by samsung?

I don't know if you remember PMPO?

That was an 80's scam to make shit look like chocolate.

It made it easy to print decals on Boomboxes with claims of 2000W! When in reality it was a pair of 3inch 15w drivers powered by 6 D-cell batteries.

CMR does similar with "pixel movement" ... it uses complex proprietary math and measurement to deliver a more satisfying number without wasting time/energy on product features that mean anything.

However ... a TV with a high CMR "should" be capable of rendering nice star field screen savers without much blur ... so buck-a-chick-a-wow-wow for relevance Mr Samsung!

No wucking furries.

It's not a product measurement (as such), it's a marketing strategy.

Response time for individual pixels is far less important than overall refresh rate, but if you're watching a white dot go spaz on a black screen, having a high CMR is vital.

It probably makes a "Matrix" styled screensaver look good too ... I was unfair offering a lonely star field as the only possible reason for caring.

If CMR gets' traction in the market, and Samsung refuse to license the (very likely) patented technique to rivals ... Samsung will have something their competitors don't ... meaningless numbers that people worry about.

Just like Wall Street.
