Can't disable motion smoothing (soap opera affect)
, November 23, 2012
This review is from: VIZIO M3D470KDE 47-inch 1080p Razor LED Smart 3D HDTV (Electronics)
I wanted to like this TV, but once we started using it we saw that there is NO WAY to disable motion smoothing -- this creates the infamous "soap opera affect". If you are sensitive to this (it makes every video look like a soap opera/sitcom/BBC show), then I'd stay away from this TV. The Vizio website and tech specs site is misleading -- they indicate that the smooth motion is NOT available, but what they mean is you can't disable it. There is some indication that the "KD" model (which is NOT the same as the KDE model here, the KD model has been reviewed favorably elsewhere) might have the motion smoothing setting available to disable.
Some other gripes: the Amazon Prime app bugged out and we had to turn the TV off and back on again to get it working. The 3-d was ok, but there was a bit of "leakage", and the set has some clouding issues on dark scenes.
