After watching a few divx/dvds, I've noticed fast motion issues, mostly on camera pans, slight skips, like bad buffering/encoding on a computer video clip.
I'll have to spend more time with this TV, but to me, if it's just part of the 'cons' bullet section on this model, it's a HUGE deal to me, one of those dealbreakers in my book, especially given what this TV costs.
Again, I'll have to spend more time with it, certainly I didn't notice any fast motion/panning issues in the store with the bluray player, it could be a setup issue.
Though I can't say that as a first time plasma buyer, I'm wondering if I made the right choice going with the samsung, instead of a different PDP, like the panasonic, or the pioneers, even if it meant $200-$500 extra, the % isn't that much.
When I first bought the TV, I wasn't as concerned with finding things wrong with it as I am now, still have plenty of time to get a completely different PDP, and I don't want to be kicking myself 6 months down the road, reading a thread about how the 5084 was good, but had some serious issues that kept them out of the panny/pioneer league.
If anyone has some technical insight (as opposed to subjective observation) as to why this TV might not, or just flat out isn't, up to par with the panny or a pioneer (in a moderately similar pricerange), I'd love to hear it.
Also any 'red flag' specs that could affect PQ would be appreciated also. I'm still trying to figure out what 1080i DTV means, as cnet listed the panny at 1080p DTV, but the 5084 at 1080i DTV, but I have no clue if the specs are wrong, or what DTV resolution means.
