I was so excited for this TV to come out, then I saw the 65 inch version at Best Buy and played around with it. I am so disappointed with this TV. I don't know how it got such a good review on rtings.com. On the 65 inch version, motion handling was horrible. Even on their own looped video that was running on it at best buy, the grass in the background of the water splash scene, was so blurry and looked horrible. I want this TV for the world cup and if that's how it is when it comes to motion blur and its processing power, this TV is not worth it. I might just have to buy a 65 inch OLED instead since now you can get them for couple of hundred bucks more. C8 is around 2200 and b7s are even way cheaper now. Any thoughts?
Calibration done on display models at retailers are extremely ymmv to check the quality of the TV.

Are you talking about a professional calibration?

I still think Sony has the best picture. LG OLEDS look nice as well.

No, he's stating that often these TVs are set up hastily and not necessarily with optimum settings. I've read that another user was extreme pleased with how FIFA looked on his set.

Rtings provides their suggested settings for calibration from use of all of their professional equipment - free of charge.

I believe Best Buy workers get a kickback for every Samsung TV they sell (because they push so hard to sell you a Samsung).So the Samsungs are calibrated nicely, the other TVs are usually crude and set to Vivid picture quality.

Most TVs have a factory set demo mode. They usually just run that.

I have a sony 75" 850e and love it, but c'mon man blanket statements about one brand being the best? Every brand has their tiers, I wouldn't blink at the chance to trade my 850e for a 75" p-series

From what they told me...every company has their reps that come in setup the TV's and take the remotes with them. They had to call the Vizio rep to see if there is a remote at the store or not cuz I wanted to play around with the settings. The guy told them that he has the remote so I couldn't change anything....

I saw that but it's a very big risk...I mean literally this thing is huge I can't even fit it in my car so I have to order it online but if I need to return it then I'm screwed

Really tempted to get this TV, would Best Buy price match? I'd have to get a new stand though... It's either this or the Quantum Dot 65 inch. More screen real estate or better PQ? Can't decide.
