Examples include LG - Motion Clarity Index (MCI), Samsung - Clear Motion rate (CMR), Philips - Perfect Motion Rate (PMR), Sony - Motionflow XR and Panasonic - BLS (Back Light Scanning). 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 UE55KU6500 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a fab TV! Seems to good to be true. We looked at all the other, much more expensive sets in the shop and this one seems to have just as good a picture as other 55" TV's (even one costing £2999). So for £2400 less, how could I possibly complain :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning The picture quality is amazing, stunning resolution. The curved screen adds a whole new dimension to watching films. The sound is superior to my flat screen 48 inch so happy with and the smart hub is fast and easy to use. Overall I couldn't be happier. I am disabled and can't get out much so tend to watch a lot of tv and films. This purchase has seriously improved my viewing experience. The customer service was excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tv. Seems like a good tv, haven't seen any 4K output from it yet but it definately has improved a couple of Blu rays I've watched on it and the terrestrial tv I've watched seems good as well. My only disappointment is that it was reduced a further £50 a few days after I bought it, I'm a VIP member and that was a bit of a kick in the guts as I went purely on the recommendation of the guy in the store without actually seeing the tv in action. I origionally went in there to buy a cheaper LG.
