I like to consider my self tech savy but when it comes to TVs I dont know how to adjust right. Plus the backlight can't be adjust on custom or am I missing something?
I like the low settings ... seems like it's not tons of soap opera effect when on low. And I keep it on presision .. the smooth seems a little to smooth of motion and not kinda normal (as normal as this setting can be anyway). Also you must be missing something cause in custom you can customize 'Any' settings you want .. even the backlight.
I try and keep my regular cable tv shows with no smooth motion at all. and like I said I watched some football on Monday after it got hooked up and then watched the Dallas game I had TiVo'ed back for a while that night and didn't see any issue at all with jest regular viewing without the smooth motion enabled. I watched Sports Center back as well and didn't notice anything until I think yesterday watching SC and saw Andrew Luck throw the football ... keep in mind it wasn't full regular speed ... and the ball had a huge trail and ring around it as it was in the air. I turned on smooth motion to low and precision and rewound it and the trail was gone.
So maybe all depending on the feed you are watching ... cause when you watch sports center it's a recorded feed from another network and every network is different on how well an LCD/LED will transmit the signal ... some network channels are smooth and perfect while others are a little pixely and what not.
All in all it's just as good as my old Vizio XVT Rear-Array I bought about 3 years ago and now 10" more inches to boot .... The 70" Sharp I had was SO bad compared to this TV ... at least for sports ... movies on it and 3D was stunning, but regular tv and sports (which is what I watch most) was terrible.
I would suggest tweaking with the settings a bit more and finding the sweet spot for your eyes ... trust me bro .. Vivid is not the sweet spot for anybody! LOL
