    It's the TV, not the PS3, and definitely not the hdmi cable. If the cable were bad, it wouldn't work at all. Don't ever buy into the A/V cable sales pitch. Monster is like Bose - way overpriced and overhyped mediocre, at best, product. Buy all your cables from Monoprice.com. They are cheap and work great.

    Edit: If you have Motion Enhancer turned on, turn it off.
    And look here for more settings help.

    really?? cables do matter. i had ghosting with the 600 series and with the lowered walmart brand. so much so, my wife saw it. after i changed cables, no more. it all deals with the transfer speed of the cable. have you ever side by side compared good quality cables and walmart brand cables??? there is a difference.

    Yes, I have done comparisons between Monster and Monoprice cables. There is no difference except price. Unless you are running the cable a distance greater than 50ft., any standard 1.3 cable will work the same as your fancy Monster cable. Its all copper carrying 1's and 0's.

    But, believe what you want. As long as you are happy. Baaaa.

    its all good, i guess the "salesmen" never leaves you after you been in it. i always read that the cables didnt matter and blah blah...but when you are trying to hit that sale and want the big commision, you go down that road. and i would almost bet the "ghosting" was in my head...because of what i was force fed. but whatever..since i dont work there anymore...i dont have to think that way...thank you for the intervention!!!

    Monster Cable is an evil company...wayyyy over priced for what they sell. Monoprice cables are every bit as good at a significant price advantage.

    Any company that basically sues every other company, regardless of what their business is, simply because they have "Monster" in their name is ridiculous. They sued a freaking mini-golf company over the term Monster for crying out loud.
