It's fine to use Game Mode, however I'd advise against it when viewing TV programmes, simply because the picture quality is richer in Dynamic, Standard, Natural and Movie modes.

@Edgie70: Game Mode reduces motion blur and input latency but it can also result in a brighter screen which is not optimal for some programmes. With this in mind you can activate it and view normal TV but I would strongly recommend exploring the other available picture options so you don't miss out.

Thanks for your reply , I've got it on dynamic at the minute and tweaked it a bit which I think it looks good , if I do decide to use game mode i presume it will be ok to do so

I would not think Game Mode is the best option for regular Tv for reasons mentioned by @AndrewL.    Depends on  preferences but personally I would not recommend Dynamic Mode as whilst brighter and punchier (which some obviously like) ,some colours can  be exaggerated and lack finer detail.  However may be more natural if you tweak some of the settings.

Well as usual with Samsung TVs I got the odd bit of judder so I've put it back in game mode , tweaked colour etc etc and I've got a picture now that I like and no judder at all , top tip if you want no judder use game mode !! Cheers guys
