Like most of the other TVs of this age and spec, the Samsung UD46CB does not have a built-in camera.

Very Slow Refresh Rate

With a refresh rate of only 60 hertz, the Samsung UD46CB has a fairly slow refresh rate compared to most of the other TVs that have been on the market for more than two years. The average refresh rate of mid-size TVs that were released more than two years ago is 170Hz, and the refresh rates range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 60Hz refresh rate TVs currently available including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic TX-L32E30.

If this TV refresh rate is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the TX-39AW404 (100Hz), or the TX-39ASW604 (100Hz) both from Panasonic.
