Do you like this TV better than the F8500? Would you have gotten that instead?

F8500 is a plasma set and I didn't go with plasma due to 1) image retention and 2) buzzing.

There is no way, I could have lived with either of those negatives.

I would rather take my chances with LED. smile.gif

In terms of picture quality, If I were to go with plasma, and that is a big if, I would have rather gone with the Panasonic Plasma models instead of the Samsung plasma models.

The only problem I have on mine is buzzing. I'm still debating whether or not to change to the F8000, what do you think if you only had the buzzing?

I was at a friends house and he had a plasma. I can't remember the brand or the model but I couldn't stand the buzzing. It was low but my ears picked it up. There is no way, I could ever get a plasma due to that reason alone!

Such a tough decision for me, I don't know what to do!

No TV is perfect. But, I couldn't live with the buzz so I had to go 100% LED. smile.gif

You can try the LED and if you have issues, you can always return it within the first 30 days!

I just did a quick search in Amazon and on the detail page it says the below.

Backlight: LED (Edge-Lit w/ Local Dimming)

I am debating between the F8500 plasma and the F8000 LED. I am building a new house and will have an open living room/kitchen area with several windows on the left side of the house. I will be mounting the TV above the gas fireplace. I'm looking at prices online and Abe's of Maine have both TV's in the 60in version and they are very similar in price with the led being about $60 cheaper. I mainly watch football and reality TV with occasional movies and gaming. Any advice would be appreciated as I plan on having this TV as my main unit for at least 5-7 years until oled are down to normal prices. Thanks in advance!

I don't know about the plasma but beware the F8000 is very reflective. If you have windows facing the tv, you will see them. It is like a mirror in the daytime. smile.gif

Is anyone experiencing audio/video sync issues (lip sync issues) when connected to Pay TV box or downloaded files through either media player or streaming? I have heard some of the samsungs have issues

 

Cheers in advance

With my Oppo Blu ray player, I have A/V sync set. See if there is a setting available to adjust A/V sync?
