Movies vs Plasma
Sports vs LCD
I recently purchased both the EC9300 (about 2 months ago) and the Samsung F8500 plasma (about 1 week ago). Initially I wasn't as impressed with the EC9300 as I thought I would be. 1 week ago I got the F8500 plasma - this is a superb display and I love it. However, the EC9300 is better, materially better. Does it have some minor motion issues - yes I suppose it does. The plasma has superior motion no doubt about it, but frankly watching both of them for the past week at home I can honestly say that the EC9300 is a better display and that the motion issues are negligible (to the point of being non-existent in everyday viewing), so much so that if I had to choose one as my main display and size were not a factor, I would choose the EC9300 every time.
Its not that its so incredibly amazing that you will be completely floored by it the first time you see it (like the first time you saw a high quality HD source vs a SD source), but in my opinion it is almost a somewhat subtle but creeping
superiority, it is a more refined display. I say creeping because as you become accustomed to it you begin to wish that all displays were as good, even the F8500 plasma. The SOE/DNR is a non-issue for me as it can be largely turned off - there is much discussion of this in other threads, but for practical purposes I have been able to adjust the settings so that I don't see it or am not bothered by it.
I have watched sports (go bears
), movies, blu rays, streaming etc. for the past couple of months on it and I have never had a moment where I said, I wish this were my old PRO110. My only issue with it is the size, I want it to be bigger.
Hope this helps,
EDIT - just realized this is the Samsung OLED thread - sorry thought it was a new thread started by Joey. Apologies, I can't speak for the Samsung OLED, but feel like the general benefits of OLED vs plasma still apply to your question. Thx W.
