What did you end up with? I've toyed with the idea of returning, but would incur some costs associated with it since I bought it from a retailer on ebay (stupid ebay coupon making the deal too sweet to pass up...)
I contacted the store through ebay and voiced my concerns. Their advice was to call samsung if I thought it was defective, and that's it. Looks like they'd screw me out of as much cash as they could on a return based on that reply...
Would poor motion handling be something to address with the warranty? Especially for a set that is supposed to be above average at gaming and motion handling?
I'm back using my 6 yr old 1080P Vizio for now. No motion issues or judder on same video sources so i know it was the Samsung. Also had the random shut downs and poor looking hdr streaming and apps were starting to lock up.
I'm waiting till spring and see what the reviews are on the new TCL P series sets that are coming out
So why is it that some folks praise the motion handling, while others struggle to get it dialed in? Is there really that much variance between tvs? I've got the FA01 panel btw.
I looks like some of these panels are hit or miss. As I mentioned my friend also bought one from the same store from the same batch and his is fine!
I know some are putting the blame on the users and content and not the tv's, i don't buy that. If you have a good set then enjoy it but don't tell us there's no problems. If you had a bad set you wouldn't feel the same. Mine was an AA01 panel.[/quote]
I have an AA01 panel too. My personal opinion about the motion handling is, it is optional, and if you don't like it, turn it OFF, and it will just act like your Vizio 1080P TV. I mostly leave it at Custom, Blur 10, Judder 3, but on some movies when the smooth motion bothers me, I will turn it off.
