I bought this TV a couple weeks ago for less than $500 -- it just seemed like too good a price to pass up. Recently though, I've been experiencing some buyer's remorse. I've noticed BIG problems with motion blur, for both HD TV viewing and blu-ray viewing. I've tweaked the picture settings a bit, but I don't really know what I'm doing and I can't seem to get rid of the motion blur. I'm not going to lie, it's getting pretty obnoxious/distracting. Anyone have any pointers for reducing motion blur? Anyone experiencing the same problems with this TV, or is something potentially wrong with my particular set? I'd love some feedback.

I've noticed the motion blur plus ghosts, but, got it as a deal from Costco in 2010 for my bedroom, so it is okay for that use.
