It looks like my Samsung UN46C6400 is going back to Costco.  Reason:  Auto Motion Plus is useless! And the blurring and interpolation is driving me nuts.  I thought i was getting used to it, but nope...not working for me.


Otherwise the TV is great.


I think I'm moving to plasma.  Now to decide which one!

From what i have seen the Panasonics have some great reviews.  How do you guys feel about Samsung Plasmas?  And what about 3D.  Considering i spent $1700 on my LED, i have no problem spending the same on the Plasma.  But at the same time saving a few buck wont be bad either.


Oh yea...i realize now the Internet widgets are basically a waste too.. Considering you cant do 1080P Netflix by downloading.


Let me hear what you think.


Thanks

The 3D Samsung plasmas were just released - the 7000 series model is available on Amazon for about what your LCD cost you.  There's also an 8000 series model for a few hundred more.


I haven't seen either firsthand, but it might be worth it to seek them out and see how they perform.

Thanks Jason, i appreciate the response.


Any other opinions out there?


I just found out something interesting about 3D.  A set of glasses from Samung might not be compatible on another brand.  See here...

Any thoughts where i can get in depth reviews of the latest models of TVs?.

As i said earlier i am thinking of returning the Samsung UN46C6400; and going plasma.  The motion blur is killing me, and the "soap opera" effect is horrible.


Thanks.

I returned it months ago, back in august i believe.  The LED technology just isn't ready.  That auto motion plus is a waste, and horrible looking!!!!  The "soap opera effect" is way too distracting.  I didn't spend $1700 for it to look like a movie was shot in video as opposed to film.  Thats exactly what Auto motion plus does.


I wish i knew it before I bought the Samsung...but it is all about Plasmas!!!!!  They are great, and don't believe any of the negatives you hear about them.  The only one i would base my decision on is if you play games.  If you do play games do not get a plasma...but other than that, I'm all about the plasmas!

 Thanks for the info. I decided to buy a Sony LED, I am going right now to look at them. Everyone said to me you can't wrong with Sony. Hopefully it will be great.


I only paid $1050.00 for Samsung, I will pay a little more for Sony, but I will feel comfortable with this brand.

I bought the UN46C7000 240hz 3D LED and cannot be happier with it, currently using the Samsung BD-C6900 Blu-Ray through a Pioneer Elite VSX-32. The picture is Stunning, 3D is amazing and has none of the blurring or soap opera effects. Although I did pay a little over $2300 for it last summer for the money it was worth it (Used my Bonus from work!). I shopped other brands around the same price but with the combo I am using I think i hit the nail on the head. I also do not use the internet widgets due to the resolution mis-match.
