I bought a 55lh55 today, it's a 240hz lcd. Sometimes the 240hz makes the picture look 3d and sometimes it is just horribly blurry around moving objects. I guess when it works well it gives it the soap opera effect. I am not an expert at the tv thing by any means. I just wonder if I wasted my money on the 240 and what is the correct usage of this feature. Thanks in advance.

turn off the "true motion" in the menu. if you like it better turned off, then you wasted your money. The 120hz and 240 hz is just interpolation. thats where the cardboard cut out look comes from. The sources you are watching come in at 60 hz, and the processor messes with that. Some people say they like it but it gives me a headache.

Well, I am pretty sure the "correct" usage or what people use for most is to watch sports. Other than that I personally turn it off whenever I am watching movies since I can't stand the 3d soap opera look.

TruMotion is a frame interpolating technique used by 120/240hz LCD's to help eliminate judder/blur caused by the low 'sample' rate on films (24fps/hz). It causes the effect you're describing. You can disable as BWDinc said by disabling TruMotion in the picture menu.


That's not the only benefit of 120/240hz though. Proper handling of 24Hz is the other which eliminates judder caused by the telecine (3:2) process which converts the film sample rate (24hz) to 60hz. Read more in the post below.
