I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on the upgrade kit once you have it installed.

I just ordered it also. For 49.99 I thought it was worth a try and it seems like Samsung isn't going to have a 2015 kit for our TVs. Now of course that I bought the 2014 kit and said that watch them release the 2015 in a month or two.

You are a mind-reader!

I believe it's time to Overthrow VerticalScope..
and Bring Back Huddler!

It's a shame that in the end TCU's playoff chances all came down to this . . .

This is for the 2000 model kit
Would that be the SEK2000 Evolution Kit?

Canadian side Samsung Canada Parts sells the kit for 350$ guess I'll be skipping this. The Samsung US site will not ship to Canada...

Ya, same problem here living in Canada. One reviewer said that WiFi no longer
works with the kit, only wired ...which would be a deal breaker for me anyway
if that's the case.

Someone in the last page of this thread claims WiFi does still work, but his TV is not an F8000 so it may be different for us.

I ordered my SEK2000 late in the day on 8/16. The Samsung site indicated "ships in 7-10 days" when I ordered. As of today I still haven't received a shipping notice email . . .

I believe it's time to Overthrow VerticalScope..
and Bring Back Huddler!

I've got the SEK2000 installed on my F8000 for a week now and it works great. You will get a Email from Samsung when they ship which includes a tracking number and requires a signature at delivery time.

Is this Evolution kit any different than the one sold a couple of years ago for the F8000?

Mine is out for delivery today, but I probably won't try to install it until the weekend.

The F8000 is a 2013 model TV. The SEK2000 kit is the 2014 kit for the F8000 (and some 2012 sets). As far as I know this is the only Evolution kit upgrade made to work with the F8000.
