X900f had more options regarding this,but unfortunately it had too much overshoot and motion artifacts for my taste. What's tour take on this? How is the motion on x950g in fast paced scenes?
Lol that's one of the reasons i bought mine the other tvs i was locking at were way worse, i think i was thinking about maybe getting the samsung q80 which was more expensive and then i saw a HDTV review of it and said to my self yeah screw that, they mentioned a whole list of flaws plus i found out on this forum that it has horrible motion processing especially for gaming.
if you need an excuse to buy this tv check out this customer review on amazon by Steven Bickhart
Pay attention specifically on the ending where he says he contacted sony about the removal of motion controls and that they said: "based on a lot of feedback, developers were working on possibly adding those full controls back in an update."
I still haven't heard of such update so will it actually happen? Your guess is as good as mine.
By the way the picture is great no complaints theres just the motion processing , best you can hope for, for now from what i can tell is a working video interpolation (some say on their tv that it actually works so i don't know) that only goes to 60fps and possible return of the motion controls in the future via update. Until then if you are using a pc for playback of movies and tv shows you can use SVP4 Pro(Smooth Video Project 4 Pro)
pc software for video interpolation, it is actually great and the best option for pc, you can tweak a lot of settings if you want, you can go for more smoothness or less artifacts or a balance of the two or just use auto settings and move the slider left or right. It's pretty CPU intensive by the way with the option of using gpu acceleration in tandem with the cpu. You can get 120fps if you use the tv at 1080p 120Hz or 60fps at 4k 60Hz because of hdmi 2.0 bandwidth limitations.And of course you can only use this software for videos (not for videogames) with supported video players , i recommend JRiver Media Center because you get great picture and sound and it's compatible with SVP. Most other great quality media players like Cyberlink PowerDVD don't support Svp because they use their own codecs so you cant use svp with them.
So ether be ready for a compromise and hope for the best or just wait for next year but then you don't really know if tvs are going to be better especially lcds seeing as they seem to get less and less attention from sony.
