The one issue I'm having is with motion. I've read through the first and last dozen or so pages and from what I'm gathering, either:
1. Live with judder (motion settings off)
2. Live with the "soap opera effect"
I know what you mean. The picture quality on my 65" 900e is amazing but I have had trouble dealing with motion too.
All motion off is definitely too much judder for me depending on what I'm watching. I know quite a few people prefer all motion off.
I am definitely not a big fan of SOE but I feel that I need to have a bit to get smoother motion on this set.
I actually have 3 settings setup on my tv now to help with judder and blur. I use Custom/ Cinema Pro/ Cinema Home. I believe there will always be some judder because of the way LCD tvs work.
One setting for Cable tv/Sports
One for 4K or sometimes HD movies.
One for 4K with HDR
For regular cable tv and sports I have motion set to...
Cinemotion low or off. Some stuff looks better on some better with it off.
Some things will look better with all motion off but I've found it really depends and I have tried all settings thousands of times on different shows/sports.
I watch a lot of hockey and other sports and sometimes it looks horrible with motion off (quality of the source matters too, Xfinity can be great sometimes and horrid others), other times it looks pretty good and turning on some motion helped and vice versa.
For Movies on AppleTV 4k and my Roku I mostly use the Cinema pro or Home.
I have motion set to...
Cinemotion medium or high depending on the movie.
I've tried TrueCinema quite a bit and stills has quite a bit of judder for me.
I do take into consideration all the different sources and channels looking better than others. Upscaling and the way the content was filmed etc. and I'm coming from an older Samsung 46" which didn't show
these things but now with my 65" being so much larger and more clear I think I'm noticing things way more than I would have with the smaller screen.
It's my only 4k tv so I have nothing to compare with so maybe this is common on these bigger 4k sets and I may be more sensitive to it than others.
