3) None of these LCDs will handle motion like a plasma, plasma could update each pixel as necessary without back flicker or other mechanical limitations inherent to LCD with regard to motion handling.
No doubt HGTV can jutter very badly, I've noticed the same thing. I've customized the motion handling which seems to have helped some but it's still not great.
In short best motion handling on LCD that I have seen is Sony. The downside? You'll give up some contrast...a fair amount of contrast on all but their top model. I will tell you I've gotten somewhat used to the motion issues over the last week and can appreciate the set for what it does well.
I would urge you to keep tweaking and know that these ultra compressed and subpar sources will create more noticable issues on an LCD than on a plasma.
Someone tried to talk me into Sony, well he is a salesman, but I couldnt compare them at the time so I went to a Best Buy, which I dont have locally, and looked at the 2016 Samsung and sony models side by side, assuming the Samsung would jump out with more contrast and that shiny look that I like, which is why I want it, because the Sony didnt "historically"
have that. But they looked identical to me, but I dont know what settings each were on.
If you are telling me the Sony still suffers in that regard, then I will live with the Samsung issues because I do like the way this picture JUMPS out at me.
I notice a network sitcom like "Big Bang Theory" almost no judder (talking about my new Samsung) but the HGTV shows lots of it and I watch a dumb sitcom called "Young & Hungry" on Freeform or whatever it is called now, and the judder is awful on BOTH my new Samsung UNKU630D (Costco) 60 hz and my KS800D (Costco) 120 hz. Weird, i thought all TV was in the same format?
I cant figure out what tv is shot in, in relation to the ratings
