Havent noticed any banding on the 2013 samsungs I had (both 7100s), and the HU9000 doesn't demonstrate any banding either - there may be some clouding but no vertical banding which I think is much more distracting - noticed it a lot with the 2013 Sony sets (specifically the w850a)


On the other hand my HU9000 is having really bad distortion and vibration coming from the panel at every audio setting when using the internal speakers - I'm pretty sure i have a bad set as no one else is complaining about this so ill likely be asking Amazon for a replacement soon. I do have mine wall mounted, thought the mount might be putting unnecessary pressure on the back panel causing the audio problems but that can't be right, right?

depends what you mean by DTS... If you mean DTS neo 6 then yes (simulated 5.1 from a two channel source). If you mean DTS HD then no, but no device out there had ever supported DTS HD over optical.

Ahzari. I think you don't see more complaints because a lot of people don't use the internal speakers like myself.

While that may be true, the reviews have touted how excellent the internal speakers for the HU9000 are - I don't use the internals when watching movies, but when casually watching TV i don't like going through turning my amplifier and sub on (thats just me). In any case I figure for the price this TV the sound issue shouldn't be normal.

I use internal speaker and notice no vibration.
I rarely get higher than 30 on the volume.

Thanks, I hadn't noticed that. Unfortunately when I attempted to use Store Mode, I was warned the picture settings would be reset, so I skipped the demo.

BTW, I've noticed several comments in the last few days about jutter. Initially, it was driving me crazy, but after applying the base settings that were listed earlier in this thread (then again around page 30), I haven't noticed jutter on any of the hockey or baseball I've been watching through my Comcast box.

Well, my Netflix app stopped working and resetting the time manually didn't work. I reset the TV and it works, but when picture is in Standard mode it dims drastically after a couple of minutes. If I change to Natural and slide to Standard it's bright again. Then dims after a couple of minutes again.
Any ideas? Only does it on Standard...I've got to re enter my picture settings and I had some simple ones using Standard I'd like to work.

Thank you!

Turns out Eco isn't universal...checked while in Standard and the Eco sensor was on. Odd that reset would set it that way. Wasn't like that out of the box. Thanks a lot!

Has anyone else noticed vertical banding on the 65" HU7500 (HU8550 in US)? 
Two problems that many have reported with this set are Motion Handling (i.e judder) and problem with UHD-Dimming kicking in at weird times. Does anyone have a set that doesn't have any of these problems?  I'm seriously thinking of getting this set (or perhaps the curved version), but all thees reports are making me wonder why I should bother when my 65" F8000 is almost perfect (No clouding/bleeding, no Motion Blur or Judder, very faint banding)?

I have the HU9000 and don't have any motion/Judder issues. I do have a minimal amount of light clouding in the lower left corner but I am still experimenting with settings.

Hello All,

I received my UN65HU9000 this Friday 05/10. Picture is great and very clear and I am very happy with it. However, I seem to have issues connecting to my HTPC. When connecting via DVI-to-HDMI cable, TV says "No Signal" (check Cables and Source). When I start the PC, all of the screen shows until Windows 8.1 welcome screen. There, sign-in notification shows up and then screen goes blank. I have tried booting into safe mode and TV displays at 800x600@75 Hz (why did it select 75 Hz not 60 Hz). Also starting windows 8.1 with low resolution mode does not work. Under Normal mode, not sure what is causing NVIDIA to select a resolution that is too high i.e. 4 K 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz (which HDMI won't support).

I have a Marantz receiver with scaling. I have tries fixing the output to 1080P (Downscale) and still no luck. I believe it has to do with resolution of the graphics card. It worked great with my old TV a LG 1080P TV before and connected to Marantz with no issues.

I am stumped on what to do. Should I return the TV or update the Graphics card (4K card)? I thought the TV will upscale a 1080p signal. NVidia has a max resolution of 2500x1600.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Umm...Nvidia is choosing 4k the native resolution of the TV. Set windows display to 1080.

or

I'm joining the club. Just purchased the hu9000 and hope it doesn't disappoint me. I'm upgrading from a 10 yr old plasma 50" Sony. Thanks to the members who have posted their settings . Will be applying those when I get it.

Are there any defects I can check/look for when I get it?

Just be careful not to remove the styrofoam on the screen until the stand is installed. There is a big note when you unpack it about the stand installation. I put padding (I think it was the wife's kitchen chair cushions biggrin.gif) and towels down on the floor to keep the TV high enough off the ground to install the stand.

Judging by what others have said, look for clouding/bleeding in the bottom corners, and see if you can spot any Motion Blur or Juddering when watching sports, like Soccer or Hockey..

I read in a review that the one-connect box has a noisy fan, & despite this gets seriously hot.  let us know if this is the case with yours.

Good luck & hope you have a fault-free set.

The lower left corner on the 9000 is notorious for clouding from what I've seen. I wonder why the other three corners fare better?

I've heard of delivery folks turning the set upside down to attach the stand and not remotely following the instructions on the box.

My 8550 is the same way. Not enough to ruin the experience, but it's visible.

I had similar speaker rattle / vibration in a HU8550 along with a bright little "worm shaped" 3/4" imperfection in the screen...also crashed the OS (after I had deleted all channels from channel list and tried to add four back) so that it wouldn't completely boot into the system leaving me without menu control and no way to fix even with tech support. So I traded in and fixed all. This time I deleted all but the handful of channels I wanted.

I recently got the HU 8550 and after a week of setting it up and having to do an exchange — quite a hassle given limited availability in my area. However, after it all I am very happy with it.

The panel definitely needs to be calibrated to lose the "soap opera effect" using settings as noted on this site and tweaked a bit for each 'mode' and input, and my color tastes. Now HD television, Netflix streams, Apple TV, and Blu ray disks look great... and even regular DVDs look reasonable. Regular television and 'cheating' HD channels — not so good. 3D Blu rays look as good as any 3D I've seen including IMAX. At distance over 18" grain of pixels can't be seen, being effectively "retina". I have to disagree with those reviewers who say HD panels are practically speaking just as good as 4K — perhaps if you are sitting over twenty feet away or your eyes are not so good. I certainly appreciate the almost photographic print quality of the image when 6-12 feet away.

My Samsung UN55HU8550 was delivered today for my home office. What picture settings are you guys using? I saw the CNET calibration settings posted for last years model but has anyone posted anything newer?

No doubt the PQ is great, but aside from 4k content having it side by side next to a plasma everything looks a little foggy and more flat.
