Samsung‘s LN52A650 is a very popular 52″ LCD TV with a pixel format of 1920 x 1080 and sporting the company’s Touch of Color product design. The dynamic contrast ratio of 50,000:1 coupled with a frequency of 120Hz should produce very good pictures. Auto Motion Plus 120Hz reduces motion blur and the fast 4ms response time should aid in displaying fast motions. Motion blur is the blurring effect on fast moving objects on LCD TVs. By doubling the frequency from 60Hz to 120Hz motion blur is significantly reduced.
