Well it has been 5 months since the purchase of this TV and I can really say it has been an awesome set. It came with 2 remotes, that bluetooth touchpad one and a regular soft button remote. When I watch Netflix or anything to do with the TV I've been using the Bluetooth remote and once you get use to it, it is really nice to use. Especially the size and how it feels in your hand.
Anyway, I just got around to getting ARC to work with Netflix. Works good. I never watched the TV show LOST, so I've been using Netflix to watch them. The picture looks awesome and the TV is throw out 5.1 to my receiver which is great. First time I have ever watched Netflix in HD and DD5.1. Anyway when I go to control the volume my Denon overlay pops up and so does the Samsung Anynet+ volume overlay at the same time. I want to be able to disable the Samsung volume control overlay. Does anyone know if that is possible? With both overlays on the screen at the same time you really can't see the volume number, and I usually set the volume by the number. It is not an end all situation, but figured I would ask.
Other than that the TV has been wonderful. I do have a couple year old Sony that has full back light array with local dimming that has just a little nicer picture, but it really is hard to tell. And I don't find myself these days so critical anymore. If I get a nice looking picture, decent sound, I'm happy. I remember years ago spending hours, days, weeks, just fiddling with settings, basically wasting my time. Asking for other users settings so I can use them on my set, and then changing them again days later when all I had to was set the settings to the way I liked them and leave them and enjoy the show. Now I can watch a TV show without that little voice in my head talking about how that corner was a little lighter than the other and crap like that.
I remember I paid $1900 for this set and now at the same store I see it for $1579. Damn, that's a pretty decent price for this set. I may just buy another. I think all the 4K hype is bringing down the 1080P sets, which is good because 4K to me, is just another hype like 3D. It will be available, but it won't be mainstream in several years....at least in my opinion. Because right after 4K you the industry needs to make money, so something else will come out, like 10K. Hey, may as well make it 20K. My eyes couldn't tell the difference anyway. We're only human, right?
