But watching TV it's WAY to smooth, its like watching every show as in the style of young and the restless.

It's really hard to get used to it, BUT if you don't like it, you can turn it off ANYTIME, so its no big deal.

It's amazing for sports tho.
I recently bought a Samsung LCD 630 Series and noticed the "soap opera" effect aswell. After about a week of watching the TV though, I seemed to adjust to it, and it looks great now. Even when watching TV and movies, not just sports and gaming. When I watch my roommates TV, which isn't 120hz, it looks noticeably worse. My roommate also found when watching my TV, that they initially didn't like it. But after a week or two of watching it every now and then, they have adjusted and think it looks great.

FYI openbox.ca offer good prices on dated model televisions so you're really not getting that great of a deal. Chances are if you look for a model that OB stocks at a retail store they will either be clearing them out or no longer carry that model.

Did you calibrate your TV?

See post#33.

If you do not want to take the time to set everything yourself here are some recommended calibration values for the Samsung 6 series LCDs:
