This is a great tv for gaming. I have not watched any blue ray movies on it yet, but picture quality of my local HD channels is awesome. The none HD channels look like deuce, but what can you expect. For those that hate that Smooth motion crap, it appears that it can be manipulated in the settings to not be at all noticable. I have only had for Two days now, but the future is looking bright. For whats it's worth, I have had 3 other HD tv's in the past and this one is hands down the sharpest looking one for video games. Have only played BF3 and Left 4 dead 2 on it so far. Also, game mode is an option and makes lag input not really an issue.
