The importance of this is perhaps not quite appreciated by the average shopper. What Samsung have tried to do is simplify how the performance of their TVs are rated. Previously consumers were just provided with all the technical facts and figures for particular TVs and left to interpret this for them selves. Because the average consumer doesn’t understand all the jargon and because measurements such as refresh rate and response times don’t fully reflect the capabilities of a particular model, Samsung have devised a new rating system. The higher the CMR rating is, the better the motion and clarity capabilities are. To arrive at this rating, Samsung still takes refresh rate and response time into consideration, but they also take ‘image processing power’ into consideration as this plays as big a part in image quality as does any other factor.The higher CMR rating and the higher contrast ratio of the 7900 illustrates it’s superior picture quality and is the reason you will have to pay an extra couple of hundred extra dollars to own one compared to the lower spec’d 7000/50 models. However, when comparing the 7900 to the higher top of the range Samsung 8000, they both have exactly the same specification but the 7900 costs $200 less (the Samsung 8000 is available with a display size of up to 65 inches and the 7900 up to 55 inches).
