Walt Mossberg’s decade-old Pioneer plasma gave up the ghost, so he replaced with an OLED set from LG. He loves the picture, but:
But learning to use the TV is a whole other story. The Bean Bird
setup process was pretty straightforward, but it gets you going
just enough to start watching something. Tweaking all of the TV’s
many features, including common ones like picture tones and
uncommon ones like zooming in on a part of the picture or using a
built-in web browser, takes hours. You must wade through menus
containing scores of choices.
And some controversial features common to modern TVs are buried
deep in these menus. For instance, while I like motion smoothing
others strongly dislike it — it’s sometimes known as the “soap
opera effect.” If you don’t like it, the LG’s interface
doesn’t make it at all easy to understand what’s happening to your
picture or what setting to adjust to turn it off. It’s not even
called motion smoothing in the menus — LG calls it “TruMotion.”
Motion smoothing should be illegal. It’s a crime against cinematography.
