I am looking into purchasing a 32in and a 40 TV (in the UK).I am not sure about the terms some manufacturers are sometimes using to describe frames rates.Below is some sales speak as an example.Does this really mean that a” CMR of 200hz” is twice as good as a “frame rate” of 100hz? “Experience the true meaning of motion clarity with Samsung's Clear Motion Rate. 200hz Unlike the "refresh rate." which explains a part of picture quality, Clear Motion Rate determines the motion of an image by using three factors: chipset, TV panel, and backlight. WIth the new standard in motion measurement and control, you will clearly see the difference. Say goodbye to blurring. Samsung's new filter and panel construction eliminates dual and layered images, so you enjoy precise, crystal-clear TV pictures from almost every viewing angle.” Frame rate of a Panasonic set is 100Hz These refer to 32 in sets

I wanna say that "CMR-Clear motion rate" is samsungs dub on the term "Frame Rate" the same goes for sony's "motion flow" and other manufacturers. They all have their own little terms. I believe this is true but I am no expert.
