Soap Opera Effect on the Samsung 7000 Plasma series

by koffas - 6/24/10 10:08 AM

The recent Consumer Reports review of the PN58C7000 gave the set much praise, but highlighted a major flaw in the out-of-the box settings configuration for the 7000 series plasma...

"We saw an image smoothing effect on all film content, so our film-based content had a more "video-like" appearance. TVs with this feature typically give users the option to turn it off via the on screen menu, but this model did not provide this option."

There are referring to the motion judder canceller. On both the 7000 and 8000 series plasmas, the MJC is set to either standard or smooth out-of-the-box. The 8000 series has a menu option to turn off this processing. The 7000 series does not come with the menu option.

One workaround to disable MJC is to toggle the GAME setting on/off.

Samsung: please release a firmware revision that sets MJC=off on both series. 8000 owners can then enable it as they wish and 7000 owners do not need to find creative workarounds to do the same.
