I'm using backlight 3 and everything else turned off, more cloudy than my old 46", but no bright pixels or halo issues, bezel has a nice gouge on the front, not sure if it is worth exchanging but the clouding is apparent and not just on a blank black screen

Ok, but what do you have these set to (they cannot be 'off'):

Mode
Brightness
Contrast
Gamma
HDMI Black Level (and what is your source device)

Back off man, I'm a scientist.

Thanks for the response. I didn't mind the Halo until the other nite and I was watching something with lights dimmed and it was just annoying. I called SAMSUNG to see if they can replace it since I also have some minor peeling of the TOC. Other than that I think I have a really good panel - so I don't want to exchange the whole thing.

Also I have been trying to use the DLNA feature - and it sure seems to be a poor implementation. Scaling and format adjustments are limited and it won't play quite a few of my files which work fine with a D-Link media player. So that was a disappointment.

I found some '750s on sale at a good price. The same price as the ln52A650s, as a matter of fact.

I'm all set to buy except then I found this thread and now I am scared. Replacement units ? Bad firmware ? Bezel problems ? "Halo" issues ? I don't have time for stuff like this.

FWIW, I was interested in the '750 for its DLNA functionality. Having read (some) of this thread, I'll probably just build a HTPC and use it.

Is the '750 a good TV or not ? If you had the option of buying a '750 or a '650 for about the same price, what would you get ?

Thanks

PS: A couple of the TV review sites have mentioned that the glossy screen on the '750 is prone to showing reflections if the room is brightly lit. Are any of you finding this to be a problem ?

Would get the 750 over the 650 any day of the week... not that the 650 is bad, I just love the bezel and pq of the 750.

+1. I called and Samsung was great in sending the tech to replace the bezel but the halo is still there. I told the tech that it didn't fixed the halo but I was not about to call Samsung again since I have never bother by the halo. Great TV and I would buy another one if I need another TV.

Hi,

I've owned my 46 inch A750 for about six months now. In the last month or so, I've noticed that picture will occasionally slow down. Being a veteran of the 71F wars, the first thing I thought of was stutter, but it really isn't like stutter. I wish I could explain it better. It's not like dropped frames, it's just like it slows down a bit. If I rewind the DVR and watch the same scene again, it won't happen.

Anyone else ever seen anything like this? Or am I the only one? Maybe I need to get a repair guy out.

There is no hardware in these TVs that can buffer multiple frames of a video stream and then play them back at a different rate.

On the other hand, DVRs have all the hardware needed to do this--mainly the hard drive and its controller. Of course, this should not happen, but it can. I had a DVR suddenly start do something similar a year ago, although there was a little visible jerkiness in the picture and slightly distorted sound.

This is easier to catch on a live broadcast, with the DVR not purposly delayed. Whenever the Play button is depressed, a progress bar pops up displaying a ribbon indicating the amount of program recorded, and a tick on the ribbon indicating the point in the program that is being sent to the TV. There is also a time balloon indicating the time position (in the recorded program) of the tick. My DVR--as do most--also displays the current time of day on its front panel. As the program progresses, if the DVR is falling behind then the tick will fall back from the live end of the progrgress ribbon, and eventually display a time in its balloon that differs from the current time displayed on the front panel. I was able to see a difference of several minutes on occasion.

And yes, the problem was intermittent. Also, the same portion of the program could be replayed with no errors--indicating that the recording part--but not the playback part--of the DVR was OK.

Anyway, that DVR was replaced with another that did not have this problem.

I could not find a thread comparing the LN52A750 to a comparable Sony LCD. My Mits WD62825 starting displaying horizontal and vertical bars. I don't want to spend the time nor cash to fix it. I would like to buy an LCD that can handle PC, XBOX360, BluRay (24p) etc. Any opinions?

Thanks

I was thinking more of the 71f and it's stuttering issues. Like maybe the processor temporarily couldn't keep with what it's being fed.

Having kids is a mixed bag of goodies and other things. You may need to reserve judgment on that until several years after the fact.

As my wife has noted on several occasions, "If it's OK for me to kill my unborn children because I think they might be too much trouble, then why isn't it OK a week after birth when I know for sure--or, even more important, when they become teenagers and have developed into an unsolvable problem?"

quick question: does the 630 with the matte screen also have a thinner bezel?

It's semi-matte but not a thin bezel. If you want thin bezel, get A850/A860 (glossy).

didn't mean thickness, I meant the frame/border? Is it thinner than the 750?

Samsung dropped off a new 750 today (oddly enough... 8/31 manf, 1009.1 fw. old set was 7/31 manf, 1009.1 fw). Halo = not fixed. After two new bezels, a new TV, I am confident that Samsung has not changed enough of the bezel to fix it. Tired of getting new TVs and new bezels. Auto programming the new tv every time is annoying me. Going to live with it.

How is your SS02 panel? If you're bored you could take a picture of the pixels close up like I did a few pages back to compare to a SQ01

The halo effect is fixed on my September 52A750, the beveled edges on the back side of the clear frame look frosted and the clear edges are slightly less wide. My clouding is still an issue but it may have reduced in the 2 days I've had it. Funny enough, when the delivery guys pulled my 52" out of the truck it was standing on its side, the side that had most of the clouding.

The clouding is also mostly near screw holes in the back, I remember reading a while ago to try loosening the screws a bit near clouds to help, this would make sense since when you put pressure on the screen when wiping it gets lighter similar to clouding... any thoughts? I really don't want to return this one but the clouding on letterbox and pillarbox content, and occasionally in regular viewing bugs me to no end.

Loosening the screws will not help. The screws holding the bezel are not the same ones that secure the actual panel to the frame and should not be putting any pressure on the panel itself.

I currently have the set on Movie Mode, Warm 1, disabled all the extra processing like Digital DNR etc.

Yoda1,

Try Zerog6's settings (Pg. 11 - post 304), KJGarrison's settings (Pg. 31 - Post 913), Mumids settings (Page 29 - Post 868) and KakiMotoRift's settings (Pg. 29 - Post 867). Try any one of these as reference and then tweak to your liking.

Not all sets are the same.

Enjoy!

I also have a SS02 panel, and I did "attempt" to take a picture of the pixels. They looked exactly like yours.
