Hello,

I am hoping someone can help me out. I recently replaced my 3 year old Panasonic TC-P50GT10 with a 60" Panasonic TC-P60GT50. The GT10 is a great TV and I had no issues with it at all. I just hooked up the new P60GT50 to watch some playoff football. I was stunned to see such noticeable motion blur during plays. I literally couldn't make out the numbers on players backs while they were running. It is almost as if they are jumping across the screen.

I have read nothing but great reviews about this TV and am wondering if I may have a defective unit? I switched over to the NHL network and it was borderline unwatchable.

Are there any settings that anyone can recommend to help this issue? I have tweaked the custom picture settings that I have found online, but they do not help.

I have a hard time believing this TV would be inferior to my 3 1/2 year old plasma.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

-Mike

Seems like you have to get a 3d tv these days to get the best 2d motion performance.

I did turn off the smooth feature and it helped a little bit. I'm working on tweaking the picture a little more before I make a decision to return the TV or not.

Everything that I read about it before purchasing said there were no issues with motion blur. I'm wondering if I may have a defective unit. I never had any mb problems with my older GT10.
