It's definitely there in the game but I have a feeling I'm being a bit too sensitive. Has the motion blur in games bothered you at all?
Can anyone educated on the matter speak top how well this panel performs compared to a top end 1080p panel like the Samsung F8000? I'm still caught up on the ever present motion blur when playing games. Cinemotion on smooth helps tremendously but still isn't great, and of course introduces more lag. Impulse mode kills motion blur but I don't care for the flickering. My understanding is that the Sammy can resolve full 1080 motion which makes it ideal for gaming. I've considered swapping out for one but I wouldn't give up a fantastic picture for it. If full hd content looks similar on both panels but better motion resolution on the F8000 I may have to consider it.
I'm secretly hoping the Sammy doesn't stack up but the reviews and specs seem to point to it being a set with killer picture and great for gaming. I wouldn't mind giving up 4k for now to get a comparably good 1080 panel that resolves motion better for my gaming. Then jumping back on 4k when more content is available. I hate to give up this king of televisions, especially since I'm a "Sony Guy" but my games just have a lot more blur than my old hx800 set. I'm assuming it's the response time or processing needed to upscale 1080 then quickly move it around.
I would love to hear everyone's thoughts out there who game quite a bit on this TV. Also, anyone who may have been looking at a comparable high end 1080 set. Is this panel something truly special or are 4k and passive 3d the "only" true benefits?
I'm not the most educated on the amtter, but I played TitanFall last night with minimal motion blur for being 6 feet away at the moment. In game mode it did a good job tho nonetheless, a lot of fast motions and panning and I was really happy with it. Forza it works perfectly, no surprise there. I hope that helps for ya
