With de-judder turned on, the motion is much better but still not as natural looking as a plasma with no motion processing. I can tell that something artificial has been done to the image when I turn de-judder on, but it is not as bad what I've seen on 120 Hz LCDs. You can tweak de-judder and de-blur (creates extremely artificial images) separately, so if you're just dealing with low framerate content, low de-judder can help without creating an intolerable soap opera effect.
It's worth mentioning that Panasonic's 48 and 96 Hz modes are perfectly acceptable to my eyes. A lot of people hate the flickering it causes when watching 24 fps content, so I clearly have different visual preferences.
The black performance is exactly how it looks in that image, for that particular scene. That was the worst I could find (the thing to pay attention to there is actually the difference between the sides and the center). You might get the impression from the difference in performance on the sides that I've been watching a lot of 4:3 content, but that was taken after 100 hours of cycling between solid colors. The screen should have aged relatively uniformly.
In most situations (with an adequately high contrast image) it does not show up at all, and if you don't care about black crushing you can completely eliminate it by turning brightness down. I'm only at 200 hours operation, and was only at 110 when that was taken, so there's a chance that it will settle down over the next 200 hours. I didn't realize just how long you need to break-in an OLED.
