For sports, second to none. For movies, I hate it. The "soap opera effect" looks ridiculous. To say it looks overly real seems silly, but it does. For HD movies, my DLP looks much more realistic imo. It seems that technology is getting to good.

I agree. For cartoon and standard def tv the LCD looks fine.

But nothing rivals the picture quality from HD sources over my DLP set. Love it!


Make sure all the processing features are turned off on your LCD and it will get better.

For reference I have a Sammy 55" LED LCD and a Sammy 67" LED DLP.

What is the soap opera effect? I think HD makes some shows seem like home movies. Is this what you mean?

Sort of, yes.

It is artifacting and smearing caused by the processor of the TV trying to deal with 24fps and 60fps video sources and the set having a native 120Hz/240Hz refresh rate. Something has to make up for the extra frames since they can;t be bothered anymore to allow a source to be played at a native resolution or refresh rate.

samsung describes the effect as an interpolation between frames. Basically the processors look at the 2 frames and the interpolate what should be between them to try to smooth out the picture. I guess the Samsung techs have bad eyesight in QC cause it is pretty obvious that the picture is artificial.

Wanna hear something really odd? Samsung says that if you rename the input to "Game" it turns off most all of the processors. I find this odd because they also say that setting the processor to "off" manually doesn't always turn it off. By design! WTF?

On my tv I have a trumotion option. Which gives a home movie look. I keep always keep it off because it annoys me when its on.

My TV is "old" and not 120hz. Those were just coming out when we got ours.

Four words, I own a Bravia. And it's an outstanding picture, just annoying watching movies, the motion looks fake.
