I believe all Samsung brands have timers on them. I am also looking for a new TV with this feature. All Samsungs I have ever owned do have a sleep timer and a wake timer. Also I believe I found that Westinghouse does also.

what does widescreen mean?

answer 1
It means the format that the tv is veiwed in. Widescreen is in a 16/9 format where as the old format of most tube tvs was 4/3. Widescreen is now becoming the standart veiwing. Tvs that are widescreen also look wider and are less box looking. To my knowledge all lcd and Plazmas are this way. Not all channels are broadcasted this way but most newer tvs allow you to adjust the format.

Question

what is the difference between static ratio and dynamic ratio?

asked 5 years, 8 months ago
By

1 answer
Answers
answer 1
The dynamic contrast ratio is a measurement of the brightest white the HDTV can produce as compared to the blackest black — not necessarily at the same time or in the same scene. For example, some LCD HDTVs use technology that brightens the overall picture in well-lit scenes to achieve very bright whites, and dims the overall picture in low-lit scenes to achieve truer, darker blacks. A measurement of the whitest white in the brightly lit scene compared to the darkest dark in the low-lit scene results in the dynamic contrast ratio specification.

The static contrast ratio measures dark and light in a static shot, or the highest contrast ratio achievable within the same scene at the same time. This is a smaller number but a truer measurement in terms of overall picture quality. It’s the measurement a shopper should take into account more so, perhaps, than the dynamic contrast ratio. But because the dynamic contrast ratio is a higher number, it’s often the number used on the specification card of the HDTV, especially if the static number is poor or average.

Just think of it as Celsius and Fahrenheit, they both measure the same thing just in a different way. Always compare static to static and dynamic to dynamic.

Vizio Sound Bar VSB200

I have a Vizio Sound Bar. If I plug this into my Samsung TV will my Samsung remote be able to control the sound or must I use a separate remote to adjust the volume?

Most likely your Samsung remote will not work with the sound bar. Vizio products for the most part use the same remotes and a lot of TV companys do this. So in your case thats why im thinking it wont work due to companys work with themselves not usually others. Feel free to try it, cant hurt.

Doeso anyone know who makes the Viore brand and is it reliable?

I am considering the 32" on sale now!

I did some checking online, and according to their website, Viore.com, it seems that Viore is an independently-owned company drawing on "50 years of experience." But no one on the message boards confirmed if Viore is a subsidy of one of the major electronics manufacturers.

As far as reliability, there's one review on Walmart.com with a 5-star rating. I personally don't have experience with the brand, but I've found on consumer message boards, that like every other brand, people have good and bad things to say about their TV. Check the specifications of the one you want to buy here at Walmart.com, and then go find a TV with similar specs on display at your local Walmart. It's safe to say that although there might be minor differences, you'll probably have the same experience.

Of course, consider that you need to have HD service in order to get the most from your HD LCD TV experience. Most Walmart Connection Centers (Wireless Departments) can tell you about your options, and even help set up service.
