I am probably being picky now when it comes to picture quality (tho motion was too bad before the newer firmware, despite trying out every combination), but now there still is too much ghosting, and sometimes the deinterlacing fails. Also too many ziggys.A good example is when a soccer ball at a reasonable speed, the ball falls to bits and leaves a trail and often flickers which is also easy to see on large motion objects, where even my old 55c8000 keeps the ball together. Slow enough and its fine. Motion wise my old 120 inch vw10 does a better job, so its not (just) a size thing. I tried sharpness between 0 and higher, but 0 does a better job, all options digital clean etc to on or a mix or all off. Best at the moment is film mode off, blurr reduction 0 judder reduction 10, tho before the firmware update the other way round worked better. Even with a popular motion test on youtube with squares and text, it cleary leaves a black ghosting over the white back ground which also shows up in the real world, tho less offcourse. Panning could also be slightly better. Moving fingers is also a good thing to look at, as the fingers regulary fall to bits at speed, if it where mere motion blur that would be fine, but the picture disappears for a bit, and thats annoying.
I presume the combination of 4k and motion which needs more computing power, is the main reason the old c8000 does a better job, and well sony is just better at motion, I hope that samsung can bring the picture quality up another notch in a firmware update.
If i look at rtings motion interpolation it looks similar like the fail picture, tho running their test it looks similar to the pass.
I have only tested (european) real iptv and sattellite broadcasts sd, hd, uhd, uhd with hdr and uhd with hlg. Then also internet clips, and offcourse the better the source (higher frame rate and or bitrate) the fewer the problems. Not tested dvds, bd, or uhd disks on this device.
I can live with how it is, but a little better would be preferred so I can be fully happy with the tv, but only better software will fix this and I do realize not all problems can be fixed.
