In terms of motion this tv appears smoother than that 6 yr old Toshiba. The amount of motion blur in Dark Souls 2 on that was absolutely disgusting!.
If you're playing on a sub 720p console like Xbox 360 or PS3 then yes, sharpness 15-20 would be advised, but if you're playing on PS4 or at least a mid range PC then sharpness should be set to 0 or else you're working against the detail. Xbox 360 and PS3 look like a blurry mess, not much the TV can do to improve it without exaggerating the already horrendous lack of anti-aliasing and just actual definition in general.

Thought I'd provide a quick update. Purchased a 75 inch F8000 about one year ago. Originally had bought a F7100 but eventually decided to upgrade to the F8000.

The TV has been absolutely flawless. I really don't have a single complaint, other than I wish it was bigger. Although the 4k sets are tempting, I don't think I'd consider upgrading until a 85 inch 4k OLED is available...at a reasonable price.

With these falling prices, I'm actually considering buying a 55 or 60 inch F8000 for my bedroom.

If you absolutely need a bedroom TV right now and will have a place to put the 75" F8000 once you get a 4K OLED set, then I'd say go for another F8000. The PQ on the F8000 is timeless in my opinion, it's picture accuracy is impeccable. I'll eventually move my 55" F8000 to a bedroom once I'm living on my own to make way for a 4K RGB OLED from Samsung in the living room.

Is this safe to do with a US set? Will it harm the tv? Normally of course I have the media player set to output 60Hz but 25fps material tends to play smoother when the player outputs to 50Hz.
Can anybody answer this one? Is it safe to send the tv 50Hz material?

I'm gonna take it back tbh, the PQ in gameplay isn't satisfactory. HD just isn't as crisp as I'd like it to be. The W9 looked so much better wereas the 6400 looks average. Its noticeable on the bbc iplayer as well, on the W9 programs looked truly HD but on the 6400 it looks distinctly average.

The 6400 is supposed to be 200cmr yet the motion blur is just as bad as my 6 yr old 50hz Toshiba!. In-game textures look washed out as well even on eye-poppin settings. The W9 had blur as well oc (like any LED) but the PQ compensated for it. Dunno if I can justify payin an extra 350 though :s..

SilentHill89, get the W900A or F8000. I know exactly what you mean, I came from a ES6100 and it was because I was never satisfied. The F8000 continues to wow me even a year later. Spend the few extra hundred bucks and get the better TV. If you're a gamer, enjoy watching content on a high quality display, or just geek out over TV technology, its totally worth the investment.
