How To Get Rid of The SOAP OPERA EFFECT and enjoy this beautiful 4K TV... :-)
on December 2, 2015
Disclaimer: I bought this TV at BestBuy only because it was five minutes away and Amazon/Best Buy price match. That said...
This is a beautiful TV and recently I learned that the "too real" look can be fixed!!! It's called the Soap Opera Effect and there's lots of videos on Youtube if you use that word in the search bar. However, I'm going to save you time by saying it comes down to adjusting the judder setting. Here's how you do it...
Click on Picture> Picture Options> Scoll down to Auto Motion Plus>Click Custom.
You should see a slider bar called JUDDER. Scroll to 0 (Zero) and you have a standard TV look. Scroll to 10 (Ten) and you have the Soap Opera Effect (everything looks like behind the scenes on a set.) ~ The closer you are to zero, the lesser the SOE. For me, a nice balance is 5 on this TV, but adjust it to your liking. :-)
Back to my review: Now that's out of the way, I like how Netflix, Youtube, and other stations can come up quickly. It has a quad-core processor and is very responsive to me. It transitions easily from cable to my PS4 to Netflix, depending on which HDMI I want. Folks, keep in mind - this is a 4K TV... most of these cost several thousand dollars. In five years or so, they will only be a few hundred bucks. This price point of $599 for a 48" as of this posting - is one hella of a deal. Can't go wrong - go ahead and buy it!
