I own a 42” Samsung, SmartTV + 3D. Is a great TV, full of features and great if you also own other Samsung devices (mobile + tablet for me), as the communication between them is awesome.

But i would say that Sony and Philipps TVs gives a better image quality (at least the ones i saw when purchased), films looks more subtle (don’t know how to say), even less sharp, but more like cinema. Something FullHD on films turns image into kind-of-video experience, and is more obvious on Samsung Leds, maybe because of the brightness/contrast behaviour. I tried to change TV settings, but still i think Sony beats on quality.

This said, i would buy Samsung again, for the features and connectivity.

You probably want to turn off CMR/AMP if you dislike that soap opera effect. Which model do you have?

^ Yeah, i played with the Clear motion rate, even tried to add some blur on movies but i didn’t reach a desired image style (maybe is better to talk about “style” and not quality). Anyway, some friends told me that it takes some time to get used to FullHD (this was my first HD TV), now i think i’m more used but still prefer the old classic “blurry” movie texture. Guess it has to do also with age and romanticism… :)

Is like seeing “Casablanca” on FullHD TVs, even when the film is still the old one (not remastered) i prefer not to see Bogart really sharpened… doesn’t match so well with the smoky ambient and his lazy soul :)

Knowing which model you have could help. I could then have a look at some settings online. On my TV (Sony), I can adjust backlight, brightness, contrast, sharpness, gamma and white balance separately. Then of course all those motionflows, black correctors and other gimmicks which are not really needed for a smooth cinema picture you are after. I watch TV in the dark so I have my settings low on everything which results in a more natural picture. I prefer more natural picture with just a little bit of “pop” for blu-rays, darker shadows than original and a warm yellowish white – considering the TV I have now of course, if I had an OLED or something, I might like it differently.

Sony is pretty good but in my opinion, you should buy a Samsung… Its cheap and has a lot of features (including 3d :P ). My family bought a samsung LED tv, not 3d but its kinda big :grin:

I have both.

Samsung all the way.

Sony does not read subtitles. Sony does not play video from your computer unless you encode it with some specific parameters. You cannot install custom apps and the list goes on and on.

^ Try these. I suggest some familiar 1080p movie, completely dark room and at least 15 minutes watching after dialing in these new settings before playing with them further. Let me know your thoughts if you do to try them.
