CES 2011: Samsung Flexes Its Techno Know How

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Some real amazing stuff from Samsung at CES 2011 have been found.  First, is  Samsung’s ultra thin 75 inch LED Smart HDTV.  The TV, like other Smart TVs will support internet connectivity, apps, 3D content and playback.  It is also power efficient due to LED backlighting and more.

And when we say thin, we mean THIN.

It looks like an upright, glass tube from this angle.  Also at Samsung’s booth is their display for Google TV.

Samsung 60HZ Issues

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

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.
