    TV pros, can you help me with an issue?

    So I'm looking to purchase a 4K tv with a budget of roughly 1100.

    Samsung UN50HU6950 50-Inch 4K / $921 / 60Hz
    LG Electronics 49UB8500 49-Inch 4K / $1,199 / 120Hz
    LG Electronics 49UB8200 49-Inch 4K /$1,029 / 60Hz
    Samsung UN55HU6840FXZA 55-Inch 4K / $950 / ?

    I keep reading about Samsung's "Clear Motion" and how its refresh rate is 240Hz but I also read that those are misleading stats and that isn't the native refresh rate.

    TBH, not sure how important refresh rate is when it comes to TV's or Monitors in general other than "higher the refresh rate. Better for fast moving sports and games"

    Can anyone chime in on what the best TV to go with on the list above? Off list recs are welcome too as long its not Vizio (had a bad exp with them).

    If you want a 4k set and your budget is 1100, don't buy one. One it will have crap components, and two, wait until they set the HDMI 2 standard.
