While it is a bit confusing that this TV seems to be miscategorized as being an official 120hz tv, but aren't most 120hz LED /LCD's really just doing the same thing that Samsung is doing (and Samsung just labled it as Clear Motion Rate) by using some video programming to push the refresh rate above 60hz? Regardless, I hate that soap opera effect, so I'd likely end up turning off whatever motion interpolation setting any of these sets have.
Please correct me if I'm wrong on this, and I very well could be, since these refresh rates are confusing without a true indsutry standard.
It does seem that a lot of these companies try to mislead you, I believe this tv (5300) is a true 60Hz with the CMR taking it to 120Hz, however there are tv's with true 120 Hz that CMR takes to 240. If you go here[amazon.com] there's a table towards the bottom, I assume most of the refresh rates listed in the table are in CMR though because amazon lists the tv as 60Hz in the description and shows it as 120 on the table and a 120Hz I'm looking at shows as 240 on the table.

I was just looking through the site and noticed this when you hover over the "Promotional Details" part on the website:
"Limited Quantities and Models available including through Samsung.com. While supplies last at participating authorized Samsung retailers only. Participation and eligible models may vary by date, retailer, and location. Additional restrictions and limitations may apply so Samsung advises consumers to verify if and when an authorized retailer is participating in the promotion."
Does anyone know what time these deals go live (ie 12:01 AM on November 18) since they appear to have limited stock through the Samsung.com site. Or better yet, anyone know which stores will be part of the participating authorized retailers?
I may or may not have spoken with a rep who said from past experience 12:00am est Saturday Night/Sunday Morning is when it has started. I have no idea if this is the way they will be doing it this year so don't take this as fact. Hopefully more emails coming with specific info.
