3rd Impressions Update: Motion Blur, Judder and Audio drop out with Netflix/Soundbar
I've mentioned that I haven't noticed any motion blur or judder with auto motion turned on. This is mostly accurate but I wanted to give some further details on this.
I've read complaints from other reviews from those who had purchase the KU series regarding judder, motion blur or ghosting. There is some weight to these claims but from what I've witness its largely based on the source material.
Most shows, movies, all video games and sports look flawless in terms of judder or motion blur in my opinion. However some material doesn't look so good in terms of motion blur or judder and I believe its largely due to how that material was filmed and then later digitally altered for production.
One show that I feel that needs more judder reduction than I typically like is 'Colony' starring Josh Holloway on Netflix. For me, anything less than 3 on the custom setting for judder control shows too much motion blur and judder. I honestly have no idea as to how it was filmed but it looks to me like 24p or moments of a slow shutter being used. Movement doesn't seem jerky but just gives off more of a motion blur. This is largely eliminated with auto motion control set to 3.
I've watched Guardians of the Galaxy and that looked great with the motion control set to 2 which is a personal preference of mine to eliminate the 3:2 pull down effect. Also, 'The OA' on Netflix looks great too.
One movie that didn't look good was 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. I've read it was filmed with different types of cameras due to many different shooting situations. That, and maybe some slow shutter or the 24p but its plagued with lots of judder. In fact, one reviewer of the movie said he noticed a lot of it in the actual theatre and it bothered him.
Anyway, I'm bringing this up as the KU series gets blamed for motion control and judder but a lot it largely depends on how the source material was filmed and produced.
Edited: These TVs are getting better and bigger and you notice more flaws now with material that hasn't been recorded or produced to the best standards.
One issue I've been having is with my LG NB3520A sound bar on Netflix with DTS 2.5 Neo which cuts out.
The soundbar will actually shut off and then turn back on. The sound bar is hooked up via an optical cable from the TV to the sound bar. Its purely random and it never happens at the same spot in a show or film. It doesn't always happen either. I've tried both the Netflix app on the TV and the PS4, and also have switched the optical cables with no success.
I'm going to try running just Dobly Digital instead of DTS 2.5 Neo to see if the same issue happens.
