Samsung LCD 750 Series
Samsung’s Real 240Hz™ LCD 750 sets a new bar for modern innovation for LCD HDTVs by offering built-in 3D technology.

For those not in the 3D mood, it’s easy to enjoy the same enhanced picture quality content in 2D with the push of a button. Even if 3D content is unavailable, the TVs can render 2D content – like broadcast TV, gaming content, and legacy DVDs – into 3D in real time.
