Hi, I have recently bought this screen and I must say I am very impressed! The percieved limitations of this screen, imo, are down to the broadcasters and the amount of bandwidth they allocate for there HD transmissions, ie, NOT ENOUGH! Especially where fast moving sport with small objects are concerned.
This I think is related to the flickering football issue which I have noticed as well and was very unimpressed. Taking the Intelligent frame control out of the equation certainly helps. Ive noticed the flickering only happens when the ball is spinning with the crowd in the bg...so you see the electronics trying to define this very small moving/spinning object against constanly changing bg (the crowd)...resulting in flickering. I would like to see how this is resolved in a higher BW transmission...I bet you it does'nt flicker. So considerring all this, i think IFC does a sort of ok job.
Switch across to the Tour De France and you'll see how IFC benefits that type sporting broadcast. Its horses for courses.
Have'nt seen any sport BR yet so cant comment.
As far as set up goes, heres whats working for me at he moment for FTA; Factory settings with contrast 65, NR-OFF, Viewing mode-normal, Color temp-normal,IFC-off for ball sports.
BTW, where did you get that price from...very good.
