I'd be inclined to believe the Samsung specs over all else.

The actual frame rate is 60Hz, but the subfield motion performance is 600Hz. That's not a full image frame rate but only certain pixels, with the intent of increasing clarity on plasma screens.

It's 1080p.

The TV may be capable of 1080P  but regardless of which console you hook up to it you'll still only be gaming at 720P since that's the highest resolution the games support.

Unless he has a PS4/Xbone or a PC.


For watching movies, I heartily recommend turning off all the pixel smoothers/subframe motion plus/other marketing guff and sticking to 24 frames per second, the way the film was shot. Otherwise, it'll look like a soap opera. For gaming, experiment with the settings and see what looks best, and remember that Plasmas are susceptible to image retention when gaming due to static HUDs (as well as channel logos when watching TV). The best thing to do is change around gaming, movies, TV, full frame content (no black bars) frequently to let the phosphors settle (takes a couple hundred hours).


Enjoy your new TV  :)
