Reasons For

Samsung UE55KU6470 Sony KD55XD7005
5 Reasons For
Significantly Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Samsung UE55KU6470 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,500Hz, whereas the Sony KD55XD7005 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,300Hz slower).

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.
