IS THIS TV 60 OR 120 Htz?

The "Clear Motion Rate" is 120. According to Samsung "CMR offers a more complete measure by calculating 3 factors: frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology". It is not the same as panel refresh rate. (60 for this TV). For ex: Samsung's 6000 series has a 120 panel refresh rate, but is listed as a 240 CMR. I Found these answers at:

Although there is no defined minimum speed required, it is recommended that you use at least broadband speeds for app content aggregation.

14 to 15 mbps is probably minimum (depending on your set-up via modem or via modem-router-TV, etc., and whether or not your broadband, satellite, etc. - some IPs will 'throttle' use during heavy traffic times and your speed could drop considerably). Most sites state that 15 is minimum for assured quality, and some say more, so you just have to read what the individual site states. Some users report they do just fine with 10 to 12mps, but that has not been my experience with my IP provider via modem-router-TV.

Is the Samsung UN40EH5300 40-Inch 1080p 120 Hz LED HDTV advertised on the site truly 120Hz or is that the CMR?

In the store, there are several 60Hz televisions of the same model number, but no 120Hz.

I don't see a VGA or DVI connection listed, so unless your PC can use HDMI for output to an external monitor, or you have a VGA to HDMI adapter, no it won't work as a monitor for a PC.

There are two ways to connect your PC or Mac to your Samsung TV for monitor functionality: HDMI to HDMI or HDMI to VGA/DVI/Displayport.
That said, the Samsung TVs do not offer wireless or networked monitor capabilities.
Please note, in the computer's operating system, you will need to set the display settings to either clone or extended view and set the computer’s resolution to match that of the maximum resolution of the TV in order to view your computer’s desktop on the TV.

If your computer offers HDMI out, I would highly suggest using this connection, since it is a basic plug-n-play connection (meaning almost no adjustment is needed on the TV or PC).

HDMI to VGA/DVI/Displayport is almost the same as straight HDMI, but in this case, you will want to connect the DVI end of the cable to the computer (if available) and the HDMI into the TV. This is also considered a plug-n-play connection.

Unless otherwise specified by your computer manufacturer, you will need to connect the computer's audio to the TV with a separate cable (3.5mm jack cable from the PC’s audio output to the TV’s DVI/HDMI Audio input), since most computers do not support audio over HDMI, VGA or DVI.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you,

Although there is no recommended internet speed when it comes to using the Smart Hub features, it would be a good idea to use Broadband internet for streaming videos and other internet content.

It is not advertised as 120Hz. The brochure type of information below the list of specifications indicates that it has "Clear Motion Rate of 120". Every where the Hz is mentioned, the website states "60Hz".

I'm sorry for the confusion, but the UN40EH5300 actually offers a 60Hz panel with a Clear Motion Rate of 120. CMR is Samsung's more comprehensive and accurate measure for TV motion clarity, with a higher number meaning a higher level of motion and image clarity. As a company, Samsung does not feel that the Hz of a panel alone is a completely accurate measure of the motion quality that can be produced by the Samsung LED TVs. Thus, Samsung uses three key points to help produce world-class motion clarity:

* Panel refresh rate: Samsung's screen refresh rate significantly improves motion detail and resolution by sampling the image more frequently, leading to smoother, more fluid movement.
* Image processor: Samsung's proprietary image processing technology is faster and more responsive than conventional image processors, as it interpolates intermediate frames to smooth out the image.
* Backlight technology: Samsung's backlight regulates output precisely in synchronization with the screen refresh to lessen the time it is lit, reducing ghosting and motion blur.

The Clear Motion Rate represents all of these features working in harmony to produce stunning motion clarity. Please note, the CMR rating is not a refresh rate. This means that the CMR of this set is 120, but it does not mean that it supports 120Hz.
