Yep... This results occasionally in bright lights or objects appearing "smeared" during horizontal pans. If LG could find a way to at least simulate low persistence the overall perceived PQ would...

It's a MAJOR improvement, but still sucks in my opinion. OTA is best, but I live in an area that can't pick anything up and must rely on cable or satellite. I BUY anything I really like. It's the...

yes I am... I notice zero effects on PQ or basic menu operation. I use my HDTV's as monitors only and I do not use any of the Smart Functions so most likely that update addressed various vendors who...

They look great on mine, up-converted by my Oppo BDP-95 to 1080p. If they are authored correctly I can use the 24 frame feature for DVD playback and they run smooth as glass.

I agree, it DOES feel and look like a new TV. I just watched a Magnum PI DVD which looked "marginal" at best on my other displays and not much better on my 9300 until now.
