    its not really the size of the text, more so the clarity. far sharper on the new TV.

    I do game mode to force the HZ down to the right speeds and then mostly leave the sets alone after that.

    Right. Try turning your sharpness on your TV all the way down to 0. Seems counter-intuitive, but it is a good place to start.

    My 7 year old 65" Samsung Plasma just blew... After comparing - in person - the Samsung QLED vs the many OLED's out there, my eyes kept gravitating to the QLED... So, just plunked down $2,900 for a 75" Samsung QLED. Gets delivered next Friday.

    So over new years I was Rocky Point and the house had a 65" LCD LG TV; I didn't get the model, but it was probably a year or two old.

    I was watching some movies on it from DirecTv and notices they looked very smooth. Too smooth. Almost like watching a soap opera or live TV, or a video game. King Arthur really stood out to me. Movies are generally filmed at 24fps, but this looked like it was playing at 60fps. I didn't think the newer TV could actually change the frame rate, so then I wondered if it was the refresh rate. A 120 or 240?

    It was really an awkward viewing experience to me. The kids watched some Paw Patrol and kept commenting how it looked like a video game. Too smooth looking.

    I don't have this effect with the plasma, but did go to Frys over the weekend and noticed the same thing on a lot of their tv's.

    What's causing this, the refresh rate of the LCD?

    It's a limitation of the motion interpolation and exacerbated in the LCD tech. You can try turning if off depending on the model, but I find it very annoying.

    Good to know, thanks. :thumbup:

    It was so hard to watch a movie. I don't know how people do it w/o turning it off.

    I noticed this at my buddies house. A movie on HBO looked like a soap opera. He had no clue what I was talking about. It was definitely a setting on the tv. Don't remember the options exactly.

    It is terrible and I don't even understand why manufacturers thought it was/is a good idea.

    I forgot to mention in this thread that I got the LG Electronics OLED65C7P a few months ago. Very nice TV Paid $2500 or so including tax.
