I would normally agree with you but I asked an identical question to the posting gentleman. I have found this GT50 to NOT handle motion very well at all. The credits at the end of a movie seem...well...call it what you might (I call it NON-SMOOTH, or "jittery" ). The only way I could get respectable/solid credits at the end of a movie was to put the GT50 on "Moderate" "Motion Smooth." That took care of the problem and I have not seen a deleterious effect from the "Motion Smooth" (but then I am not susceptible/see a problem with overly smooth motion (the dreaded "soap program" motion). I just do NOT think this TV handles motion well. But "plenty fast enough ?" Um, no, I do not agree.
