We have been receiving numerous calls lately with customers inquiring about the quality of their TV. Customers who have purchased a Samsung TV have noticed the information window in the corner of their screen shows “60HZ”. Customers are concerned that their 120HZ Samsung TV is not operating at optimum performance. No need to worry, the explanation is simple.
The information window stating “60HZ” is referencing the incoming signal of the program, not the refresh rate of the TV. When the Samsung TV receives the signal the refresh rate doubles, providing a smoother, more fluid image.
Just a few weeks from now is the biggest football game around: the Super bowl. While us here in Chicago are rooting to see our Bears play, you can spend the time either doing the same, or checking out our full line of HDTVs. Choose from top manufacturers like Samsung and Sony and watch the big game on a new big screen!

Everywhere you turn, there is something in the news, on line, in a blog, on TV, really everywhere, about 3D TV. It is fairly pricey right now, as so are the accessories—or rather necessities, like 3D glasses, Blu-ray, and HDMI cables.
But, if you remember the early days of the VCR, DVD, and Blu-ray player, they too were expensive when they first came to the market.
Check out this article on 3D technology. Do you think 3D TVs are going to be the death of standard HDTVs? Let me know what you think!

April 16th, the day the Energy Star Rebate program for appliances began and ended in IL, consumers saw the importance and popularity of the Energy Star rating system. Not only is the Energy Star revolution going to make this world a better place, but also it will make paying energy bills each month a little less daunting.
Just a few days ago, May 1st, Energy Star standards changed for TVs. Previously, a 50” TV could meet Energy Star 3.0 requirements as long as it didn’t consume more than 318 watts. Now under Energy Star 4.0’s stringent standards, the same size TV can’t exceed burning more than 153 watts—just less than half of Energy Star 3.0 requirements. Energy Star 4.0 will also demand TVs not burn more than one single watt of energy while in sleep or standby mode.
What does this mean for you? By burning less energy, you will reduce your monthly energy bill as well as release fewer greenhouse gasses into the environment. The new Energy Star standards will reduce energy consumption by 40%.
Energy Star 4.0 requirements are far from where they need to be. If you are hesitant to purchase an Energy Star 4.0 model anticipating Energy Star 5.0, consider that you will have to wait until May of 2012. Manufacturers will have until then to produce TVs that are 60% more energy efficient than models produced prior to May 1, 2010.
