Hi Guys

Looking at a Samsung LCD TV (ln52a750).. but a bit concerned about "motion blur" on fast action.. although it has 120hz setting, it is no recommended for film base movies .. makes them look like camcorder recorded.

so, if you could bring one or two DVD movies to " test" an LCD tv for motion blur, what would you bring ???

Thanks
Steph

Road Runner and Bugs Bunny?

In all seriousness, maybe something like Fast and the Furious.

I have the Samsung series 6 52' I was also concerned about motion blur. I have not noticed any at all and I have watched a whole host of movies since I have had it.

If you do want to take a long a disc then just pick one that has a lot of very fast action.

I would also recommend looking at Plasmas. My new Panny with 460hz subfield technology is fantastic on fast moving movies and sports. The picture is killer.

I've been looking at the Samsung PN58A550 and I can't find out for the life of me how many hz it is; can anyone help. Also, what is subfield technology? Is it exclusive to Panasonic?

Thanks

yeah, that is a Panny thing. I was also not able to find any specs on the Samsungs regarding fast moving issues, but they are rated well also. I think plasmas in general have always done better in that category, not sure.

Plasma have always done better with fast motion, it's only recently that LCD has doubled the refresh rate to 120HZ which almost completely mitigates the orinigal issues with 60hz LCDs.

I did go in and watch some fast moving pictures and some sports on the LN52A750 and I could not discern any blurr whatsoever.. so, I'm good with that and if only Future Shop had some of them in stock, I could finaly buy the TV. It retails (in Canada) for $3200CA and they have it on right now for $2399.. quite the savings and at that price, I have not seen anything that matches the PQ of that set.

Just ordered an HDMI cable and some MultiChannel Audio cables from BlueJeans.. this will allow me to hook up my new Pioneer BD player to my new, if I ever get it, samsung TV using HDMI and Analog to my Anthem AVM20 pre-pro (which does not have HDMI).

It's getting there.. slowly but surely.. looking forward to having it all setup and running as it should.

I've found a refurbished one for $2000 Canadian and it comes with a one-year in-home warranty. I just read a review here and it rates the Samsung PN50A550 as the best plasma for overall value. I've always been skeptical about refurbished electronics, but Alan eased my mind when he posted not too long ago about refurbish stuff and said that they are excellent quality because they go through such stringent testing.

Have you read anything about burn in, and are you concerned about it? Did you get a chance to look at either of the Samsung's aforementioned?

It's Randy right? I've been on these boards long enough that I should remember your guys names.

Well, I just got off the phone with Samsung and they said that the PN58A550 is rated at 6-8ms; seems pretty good to me?? The representative also mentioned that even though TVs (LCDs) might be rated at 120 Hz, virtually no signal is over 60 Hz (120 Hz is essentially future proofing). Is there any validity to this?

I thought one of the benefits of 120 Hz is that it's a multiple of 24, so there's no need for the 3:2 pulldown with movies.
