Reasons For

8 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE40H6400 is a 400Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 300Hz faster than the Samsung UE40KU6000 (100Hz). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Three USB 2.0 ports Edit
