So... I've now had the tv a full week and it wasn't until last night that I figured out the visual settings that worked the best for my wife and I. Everywhere I looked, for testing and calibration settings, I noticed all the reviewers turned the Auto Motion Plus off and killed the sharpness all the way to 0. Well that resulted in a grainy picture for my cable tv source. While sometimes it would look decent, say watching baseball, the score and any visual words on screen looked a little fuzzy and not very crisp.
My wife decided she wanted to watch the tv for a change (first time really in the past week for her) and she put Bachelor in Paradise on (i know i know i know....) Her comment was, her parents tv which is a 4yr old 65" Sammy looks a lot better than our 2017 4K 75" tv. I told her I've been reading professional reviews and their calibration settings and I set the tv to those. We both played with the settings and we both love Auto Motion Plus and we turned it to custom and turned the sharpness from 10 to 84 and the screen just pops now, just how WE like it. Text is clear and crisp.
I played with the settings later on after she went to bed and watched some 4K movies I have (Hacksaw Ridge, Planet Earth 2, X Men 4K trilogy (First Class, Days of Futures Past and Apocalypse) and turned the sharpness up and OMG A HUGE difference.
I guess everyones eyes are different and people really do have different visual tastes. Some of you may hate Auto Motion Plus and hate the soap opera effect, but I personally love it.
