Great thread, hoping some of you experts can give me some advice!
I just got the S30 and have been pretty happy with one exception: the tv seems to pixelate when displaying scenes with lots of motion. While it is noticeable during some action sequences, the most profound example I've come across was a nature show - specifically lions running around on a grassy plain. The wind was blowing the grass and of course the lions were running. Ie, virtually every pixel was changing rapidly and the picture looked terrible!
Is this pixelation improved on the ST30? Intuitively, I would think so given the ST30 has 1080 lines of motion picture resolution vs the ST30's 900. Another website, however, noted that the "motion score" in their review was actually much better for the S30.
Any insight is welcome. Is pixelation just something one lives with in a sub $1000 TV or should I return this lemon and get the ST30?
I'm pretty much a newbie too, but I think the experts are going to want to know if you're talking about a broadcast or cable show, or something from, say, as ideal as a Blu Ray video.
