i bought this tv on saturday. the lcd blur is hardly noticeable, you have to be looking for it to notice it, besides that most games are incorporating motion blur when the camera moves fast anyways. i played call of duty 4 and gears of war 2 all weekend with VERY good results. This is a great tv for the price. the picture is very bright when the sun is at it's peak and there's a lot of light in the room. it took about 15 minutes to get it in the condo to watching tv, it was very simple. I have some really good settings for gaming over component, but i'm not at home, I will post them when I get there. I always hate how black mostly looks bright gray on lcd's, and this was the case when I took the tv out of the box, however, after some setting changes black is now black for video games. Black always looked just fine on cable. My parents have the 56" epson projection lcd and a 47" hitachi lcd, and the picture of this tv is far superior. i also saw this next to the samsung 40a550 and the sony's picture is more colorful.
