Samsung or Panasonic? (LED TV)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to understand which is better as I'm buying a new LED TV.

The one that I shortlisted is UE32EH6030.

Do you think there's a better one (Panasonic or Samsung) for that money?

Help guys smile.gif I'm not really into this stuff, all I'm looking for is Hz (higher is better), resolution, refresh rate.

Happy new year btw.

I would get the Samsung every time.

Panasonic TV's are things of the past.

Panasonic said they're no longer making TV's anymore after they recorded so many losses.

It's also very worth looking at what LG offerings you have available to you. Samsung and LG should be the two brands you have shortlisted every time, drop Panasonic out of your memory banks.

Edit: i didn't look closely at the Samsung model or pricing, but from outward specs this looks to be the LG equivilant: http://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-32LM6200-led-tv

It's on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B006ZH0JBM

Regarding LED HDTV with the least motion blur for video games -- it's not a good market right now, the plasmas are still a better buy for video games. However...

Samsung is the better buy, but if you already have a high-end (expensive) recent Sony with the "Motionflow XR 960" setting -- there's a new strobe backlight setting in those that does not use interpolation (bad for games). This is the "Motionflow Impulse" setting (strobe backlight without interpolation). It is not as good as LightBoost but it has the massive blur reduction without the interpolation. The input lag is worse than a monitor, but better than interpolation. As long as slight input lag is not important, and you don't mind the annoying 60 Hz flicker. The "Motionflow Impulse" strobe backlight works with console videogames and computers at 60Hz. It does not function in Game Mode, so there's probably a yet additional extra frame of input lag, so not ideal for fast-twitch gaming. But far less lag than interpolation. I'm told by reports, motion blur of this Impulse setting is similar to a plasma.

(This hdtvtest.co.uk review talks about the Motionflow Impulse setting)

If you already have the high-end Sony HDTV, try this setting with the game console (temporarily disable Game Mode, enable Motionflow Impulse) and see if it works well with motion blur elimination.

I am wondering if some of the newer Samsungs (Clear Motion Ratio 960) have a similar interpolation-free strobe backlight setting.

Actually Panasonic said they will continue to make TVs but that could change in the future if their financials, like Japan's overall, continue to struggle.
Personally I would be disappointed to see Panasonic fail in the TV market.

Samsung plays panel roulette with consumers. Some panels are Samsung panels, while others are being made by Sharp or lesser companies.
The same model may look great with a Samsung panel, but very ordinary or worse with some other lower quality panel.
Of course Panasonic Plasma is the best for viewing angle, handling of motion and deep blacks. Apparently their LED models are getting better now that they are in that market too.
