About the Samsung LN46C650

Samsung's blur reduction is equally effective on sports and movies
Samsung's display technology is the equal of any TV maker out there, and the LN46C650's Auto Motion Plus blur reduction is a great example. You can independently adjust 120Hz processing and "anti-judder" processing. Judder is the image stutter you sometimes see during long camera pans. It's an issue for film-based sources, but applying too much judder reduction can give movies a "video" look that some viewers don't care for. The ability to fine-tune motion processing ensures a smooth, natural picture with all your sources.
