The price drop is worth it IMO. If you don't use the smarthub that much (which I don't at all) then it's worth it. There are other options to substitute the smart hub like apple tv, boxee, even your modern blu-ray players. It all depends on you. But the price drop helped my decision.

wow i cant believe the price dropped to 1499.00 for the 55" It almost has me tempted to pick it up. I probably will wait considering the smart hub issues and possible flashlighting issues. But its def worth thinking about!

I read viewing angles are garbage and black levels are worse than last year? I already have a samsung d6000 of last year and my biggest complaints are viewing angle, flashlighting, and bad input lag even in game mode. Can someone comment on the es7100 and its viewing angle versus the d6000 of 2011? If its not a good improvement I will just wait until the 2013 models...

Has anyone noticed that the battery door on the SSG-4100GB glasses become really loose and start popping out and not close properly after holding the battery for a couple of months? I have 3 of my 4 pairs with batteries in them and have noticed this symptom on all of them. While the last pair that I have never used still has its door sealed tight.

I have just contacted Samsung and they refused to look into this problem because the glasses only have 30 days of warranty on them. I mean this is obviously a design flaw that wouldn't become apparent inside of 30 days.

never saw this, but I use a 3rd party 3D glasses cause I did not like the glasses that came with the TV, I got a recharchable pair from dimensional optics.

Hi all!

I was wondering how this set handles 24p Blu Ray? I was looking to pick it up since it's on sale now. I'll probably opt for the 60" and it'll be my main set. I'll be playing a lot of Xbox and using my PS3 as the blu ray player and streaming device. It'll go in a room where I can control the light if it's a bright day.

It will handle the blue ray. The screen has a refelective surface so window glare is a potential issue, I have mine in a bright room and it works fine.

Also I am returning my 55 for a 60 inch due to the decreases in the price.This being end year for models there could be some product unavailabilty according to the manager of Best Buy.

I could not find the 55/60 inch 7100 on Amazon yesterdaay.

Other models 7500 and 8000 were available.

Hi everyone,

I just set up ARC to work with a Marantz 1403, but cannot figure out how to stop the TV from displaying the volume level whenever it changes (The display on the front of the receiver is very easy to read). Has anybody figured out how to disable this, while still using ARC?

The fact that this is only 1497.00 free shipping and tax free through amazon right now is very very tempting. I may even jump on the 60" for only 300 more since it is a tax free purchase. What do you guys think? Or should I wait for the F7000 that comes out in march that will obviously not be this cheap.

I have no flashlighting.....color is great, overall PQ is better than the D6000 Series.

Better picture resolution and motion handling.

Game Mode is reponsive, same as the Samsung A850.

hy am new to this forum...right now am in the dilemma of Choosing between two Model ES7100 And ES7500 i Will be getting the 46inch Model.....through Extensive Search and Research am Able to get these Differences between the Two model i have Seen the Comparison Char by Samsung between these Two Model Which Doesnt Actually tell u the True Difference

from Different Forum i able to get these Difference

3D Glasses are Different 7500 One got Better Glasses 7100 got Cheap Glasses....

Sound Quality Difference 7500 got DNSE while 7100 got SRS HD whihc is lower than DNSE

Voice and Gesture and Control and Camera Every one knows That

3d Sound in 7500 while in 7100 it not ...i dont know exactly abt this

2 Remotes conventional and the SMart one

Increased CMR Rate of 840 and Mircro Dimming pro in 7500 while in 7100 they are at std levels




i would like to know if any 1 know other Differences between these two i am leaning more toward 7500 because of the additional Features where i i live it $250 More than 7100

Can Any one Confirm About the PQ of both the TVs and the 3d Quality as Well are there any big Noticeable Difference between Over all PQ and 3D Quality ...as i already told 3d Glasses in 7500 are Superior than 7100

and lastly and Advise should i save 250$ or buy 7500 ...i will Ask the Same Question from 7500 Owners as well.....

Because of reading so many poor reviews I will go ahead and wait for the 2013 models to be reviewed and maybe pick one of those up. Thanks for the info guys. I will try and be happy with my D6000 for another few months. Might buy a new tv stand or something. Maybe surround who knows wink.gif

Can't really believe there would be too much difference for the new models upcoming to this one. The ES series is the same as last years in my opinion. My co-worker has last years. Gaming is great on this set and at this price, I would bite on it. You will most likely have to wait till next year this time to get a good deal like this with the new versions.

Done deal. Best buy is picking up the un60es6100 next week and dropping off the un60es7100. My wife said you only live once and couldn't pass up this deal. I personally liked the picture better on the 7100 at the store.

Yah i agree with you a bit on that one but I can probably put up with my D6000 for another year. Who knows. I will think about it tomorrow. I just dont see why i should upgrade if this set still has viewing angle problems and flashlighting like my D6000 does.

I'm very tempted to get a 60ES7100 now with the price drop but can't quite make up my mind after reading some of the poor reviews. In general, ES7100 gets lower reviews than D6400 in picture quality and other things. Do you guys agree with that? Is the quality of the standard channels on ES7100 really that bad? How does the SD channel quality looks on D6400?

There are still a few D6400s from places like MODIA. I wonder if it's a good idea to get a D6400 or ES7100? Thanks for the help in advance.

Just bought the 60 inch 7100 at Best Buy on Sunday (decent deal). I'll get it shipped this Saturday. And I'm very excited for this TV. Any advice on calibration, CNET only has the 6500 info posted? Im going to do it myself but I wanted a base to start with.
I will also use an Xbox 360 and PS3 on the TV, any advice on settings with the systems?

Thanks!

I have recently received my Samsung 60ES7100 and I am worried that this may have a capacitor issue. My sons were complaining that the TV was turning off and quickly turning on by itself which I have proven to be true as I saw it happen 3x tonight. Is there anybody that have the same preblem with their unit or this is just a firmware issue?

the quest is whether or not to spend the extra 300 on the 60" versus the 55"? Are the 60" panels different when it comes to pq since i know 60" panels are made by sharp usually.

The ES7100 Picture Quality is way better than a D6400.

I had a D6900 and its very simillar to a D6400.

The D6400's 3D is not full HD, the resolution and motion are weak for 2D.

The D6400s are more prone to flashlighting and banding.

The D6400 does have a better darker black level.

There is a huge difference in motion. I was actually floored by how well hockey looked and moved. Once I saw how hockey looked and the clarity, my mind was made up.

So if you price match it and now pay the 1,749 and keep the 200 card? That would turn out to be total of 1549, no? I bought mine at hhgregg and got the 200 gift card there also. But if I can get it for the new price and keep the 200gift card that would be great.
