Hello,

I'm looking for the best / most fluid motion of any TV on the market that is not plasma. I may end up getting an F8500 but I thought I'd check here in case I've missed anything. I've been to 2 best buys and 1 pauls over the past month and all the non-plasma TVs seemed to have bad motion. The manager was insisting the picture looked great and I said I could tell before I even knew what model he was showing me that it wasn't plasma because of the motion. I realize a large percent of the population doesn't seem to be bothered or even be able to detect the motion issue but for some of us it is very noticeable. I notice it and sometimes it is really bad but sometimes it isn't that noticeable. My best friend literally gets sick from watching bad motion so I need to make sure my next set is great for motion.

I've certainly heard about the source being matched to the blah blah blah. 75% of the time I'll be streaming from oppo 103 and about 15% of the time I'll be watching movies from my oppo 103 (BR or DVD). The rest live TV from the built in tune.

Are there any TVs I should be looking at? One of the reasons I'm considering something other than the f8500 is that I'd like a 70" screen or larger.

Thanks

Sony high-end LEDs have lots of motion options


One of them:
W905A
OFF (will also work fine IMO)
Standard (Motion Interpolation)
Smooth (Motion Interpolation)
True Cinema (Motion Interpolation)
Clear (Black Frame Insertion/Motion Interpolation)
Clear plus (Black Frame Insertion/Motion Interpolation)
Impulse (Black Frame Insertions)

Thanks. I'll have to check it out. I went to watch a Samsung F8000 last night and the TV motion was unbearable. I adjusted the motion control - on, off, tweaked, it didn't matter the TV motion was wretched. I'm wondering if I need to adjust something on the BR player because that same BR player with the same disc just connected to a Samsung F8500 looked great. I was thinking that maybe, the BR player was set to be optimized for plasma playback? (not sure if that is possible so I'm asking for help if anyone knows).

I would probably bring my BR player to check out the XBR-65X850A.

When watching movies it is a combination of motion options and Film Mode setting (TV options).

yes.

The name manufacturers use you will find here.

Sony uses the name MotionFlow in the TV menu settings for all motion options.

Thanks. I've had time to really think about it. Although I'm very anxious for a new TV, I think I'll wait for CES before I make a decision. I realize that means another wait but I don't have Bill Gates' income and I tend to go big on the TV and keep it for many years. I'm thinking if I'm patient I might find something worth waiting for at CES. I did look at the Sony UHD 55" TV and the motion wasn't jumpy like the Samsung but I did notice artifacts around the motion - kind of like the weatherman has that outline when he moves in front of the weather map. I didn't bother to hook up the BR player to it as I didn't realize it came in a 65". While it does warrant further investigation, I'd be angry with myself if I went to CES and saw the holy grail of TVs and hadn't waited another week for the purchase. I just ordered a cabinet to be built to match my amps (depth) and other equipment and was hoping to have a nice new TV to put over it as my current TV is a floor length mits 9" gun RPTV.
