The 3d, IMO, is much better on the 6500 its better on real 3d and 2d-3d conversion. Between myself and my 3 kids I watch a lot in 3d and I can def tell a dif you said this is the first led TV you have owned so you can't really say whether or not the lm6700 has the better than the 6500, yea maybe you compaired them in the store but its not the same, I promise, I had the 6500 in my house for about 25 days so I know the 3d on it very well and its def better when it comes to 3d . However this TV (lm6700) is very nice looking and I have gotten the picture looking really good the picture now is just as good as the picture I had on the 6500 it just won't get near as bright. Like u said its like having a plasma but I bought a LCD/led TV because I like brightness if I wanted one to look like plasma I would have paid a lot less and gotten a plasma and for the whole SOE i had the manual setting set to a point to where it didnt have the SOE an still provided a better pic on a fast moving scene. All-n-all the lm6700 is still awesome and I am gonna keep it I hear they are working on an update to allow for true motion control now just if they could let me get into all the tool options to make adj in there all would be good. If I could just switch them out though and not have to deal with the shipping back and waiting I would get my 6500 back because it, for me, was perfect.
actually in my house we have 1 samsung led, and one samsung lcd, but this is the first LED that i have bought for my room, but i have had other LEDS in the past that i have returned after setting up, because i wasnt happy with them.
the reason why i didnt get the 6500 model is because i couldnt stand the inaccurate colors. I also watch a lot of horror movies, and i couldnt stand the fact that the 6500 would lose so much detail in dark scenes. Sometimes i couldnt even see the buttons on a black shirt, or the wrinkles on dark colored jeans. the 6700 shows all those details.
i shop at frys, so i always try tvs in my home, i dont do comparisions at the store, because the lighting at the store is not the same as the lighting in my room.
i think the major difference between you and I, is that i prefer accurate & natural colors, not torch mode settings.
the 3d on the 6700 doesn't look like the resolution takes a big hit the way the 6500 did. when i had the 6500, i could see horizontal lines, and on the same 3d material i dont see it on the 6700.
im just curious, how bright do you like your picture to be? When i turn up the brightness too much on the 6700, the colors looked washed out or something, and black becomes grey.
