Question

Samsung UA40EH6000 or Sony KDL40EX650

by RandolphCaer / October 31, 2012 8:00 PM PDT

After much looking around for a new TV, I've finally narrowed it down to two models.

The Samsung UA40EH6000
http://www.bigbrownbox.com.au/samsung-ua40eh6000-series-6-40-inch-102cm-full-hd-led-lcd-tv/

Or the Sony KDL40EX650
http://dicksmith.com.au/product/GE3006/sony-40-quot-101cm-full-high-definition-led-lcd-kdl40ex650

Both are 40", about the same price and have the same features.

Before I make a decision, I thought I'd ask if anyone has either and what their experience is.

Specifically with the hz, the Sony is 50hz with the motionflow XR 100. The Samsung appears to have just a plain 100hz. How do they go when playing video games or fast action films?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

For this I have to see the displays.

I'd have to spend at least a hour watching both if they are that close.

The usual web site I visit that has color gamut test results does not have these so I can't use that here. We're back to the eyeball test.

Thanks for the input Bob, I decided on the Samsung UA40EH6000, I bought it from bigbrownbox.com and it'll be delivered mid next week.

Can't wait, I'll post a short review when it arrives.
