I set it on High for CGI movies, & documentaries. That's what AMP is basically for when watching films.

I do use Low for most other stuff, it still looks natural & makes long panning shots not make me wanna puke.

Looks weird like how? I don't find it to be too much of a problem on Blu-ray, however sometimes the images kind of jump out and images tend to have a hard time processing in fast scenes.

i pretty much leave it on all the time, it doesn't really bother Standard TV and Sports, i like it while watching HD shows it seems more sharper and i like the soap opera looks, i even leave it on High on blu-ray unless u get those movies that does not like it b/c it skips alot, pearl harbor is one of them, so i put it on med or low.

I wonder how many ppl who dislike AMP don't like it because they leave it on High or Medium all the time.


I don't hear a lot of complaints about it when it's on Low.

Got a 46a650. Love the image quality (not the motion quality) but AMP is a real mixed bag.


I feed the TV: HD OTA 1080i & 720p, blu-ray HD (WD-TV box) over HDMI, DVD 480p over component, & some recorded HD OTA from a HTPC over component.


Spent many days playing with all the AMP settings and even sending the same movie from multiple sources to compare which one the Sammy handled best.


I can say I am not 100% happy with really any AMP setting as a default. AMP needs to be a "hot button" on the remote so one can change it w/o having to keep going into a menu setup. I find myself changing if frequently depending upon source material.


AMP on high seem to do well for OTA Sports & some normal/live TV shows. CSI & 11th hour however look "extreme w/ cut out people" with AMP on high - so that gets set to medium or off.


Most Standard DVD's (comp. 480p) look best with AMP off - but there still is some judder that the LCD screen technology exaggerates (and even old CRTs handle better).


I have seen AMP introduce more stuttering at times when on than when off on some source material.


Long story short - experiment and see which setting you want to "settle for".


I'm no video snob, nor have deep pockets but I would gladly pay more for a better solution than AMP.

When I owned the 52a630 my wife couldnt stand the soap opera effect. Which is ironic because she loves soap operas. When It was on low she didnt really notice it.

I use AMP on Low for everything. AMP kicks ass.

I have to agree that AMP is part of what gives the TV its WOW effect. There really should be an on/off button for the function. I have been trying to find access to that function with my learning remotes, but no luck.

Great point about the on/off button. AMP is great on low or medium but dicey on high where it can be too much
