All these figures are twice or more than the traditional 100Hz/200Hz refresh rate figures. No abbreviation indicates traditional measurement. Plasmas generally use a 600Hz sub-field refresh rate.

LED Backlight
Does the TV have LED backlighting and what type is used? Full Array LED is generally agreed to be the highest spec and offers very even lighting and slim depth. Edge LED keeps a slim depth but relies on more processing for even lighting. Direct LED is the most basic and has the deepest depth. A simple 'Y' means the LED type is unspecified at present.

SAMSUNG UE49MU8000 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I wanted an upgrade to my 32" TV; a bigger screen, more features and slimmer design. I was unsure whether to choose the MU8000, Last Years model or something similar. With so many products and options available sometimes this can be difficult. After unsuccessful trips to other shops I headed to Richer Sounds - having purchased from them before i knew that staff were both friendly and knowledgeable. They were able to pick the relevant TV that matched my needs/requirements. The TV is everything i wanted, it's sleek, thin design is both beautiful to look at but also practical. The features available are brilliant and the picture/sound quality is second to none. I would highly recommend both this product and Richer Sounds. If your looking for honest, knowledgeable advise and great products look no further!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture Perfect and Sounds Wonderful I have only just received this TV and therefore l am still in the process of learning all about it. But you can tell right from the beginning that this is a special Television, the sound is clear and the image is spectacular with lots of variables that l am still learning to use. I am an old duffer of 72 but l am still able to navigate the various options with great success... all in all a wonderful TV.
