Samsung UN40D5005BF model and motion smoothing question

by BobBombadil / November 23, 2011 9:37 AM PST

I am thinking about purchasing the Samsung UN40D5005BF model from Costco. I have done some research on Samsung tvs and have read a lot about 120hz tvs and the problems of auto motion plus. This particular model however does not seem to come with auto motion plus. I looked in the settings and didn't see this option. Does this tv have any motion smoothing options/settings that I should know about? I would like to know because I would like to turn them off so I don't experience the "soap opera effect" when I am watching blu-rays. Or does this tv automatically motion smooth without providing any turn off options?

I just purchased this TV today. Please do not buy this TV. The labeling on this TV is very misleading the TV is actually 60hz. The motion blur is also there. If you going to be watching blu rays with dark scenes you will see ghosting and shadowing which is annoying. The 120 is the Clear Motion Rate. This is not the actual hz. I thought i was getting a great deal on a 40 inch samsung LED 120 hz deal for $499 at Sams Club but no. When a deal sounds too good to be true it usually is. Hope you get this message before buying this tv.

I just purchased this TV today at Costco for $489. I did not open box yet. Should I take it back? What 40" TV do you recommend in this price range? Thanks for your insight. Aloha, Ray

The television's panel is a 60Hz television.

Just called Samsung and was assured that the this panel supports 60HZ up to 120HZ, provided connected device can output 120HZ. And Auto Motion is supported at 120HZ. Is this just marketing and sales speak?? The lady put me on hold to go verify.

Someone goofed here. I can't find any document that writes this model supports more than 60Hz input rates. Yes the panel is 120.

Thanks! Picked up one this evening. Everything from the packaging to literature states 120.

This will be interesting. I'd like to find a 120Hz monitor.

So far the gamers have been upset about being stuck at 50/60 Hz.
