Thanks in advance!
I also have problems with the green bars. This is the second tv to do this. Took the first one back to best buy now the second one is doing the same. Talked to Geek squad and they could not find anything about this problem. Have the latest software version 1110.4 that was downloaded 6/4/14. They suggested returning it to the store. Don't know if I will risk getting a third set or maybe try an LG.
I really like the TV, and the apps I've tried all work except for Netflix. I can log into my account, but when I try to actually play a movie it says the title is not available right now. I've found a couple things on-line where people had similar issues, and I tried manually setting the DNS server settings, but it is still occurring. Has anyone else faced this and found a resolution?
We spoke with the Costco Concierge, who had us execute some basic configuration features and then connected us with a Samsung service facility. The technician will be calling and stopping by next Thursday. However, the problem is only visible in a dark room, and at present, it is only dark here after 8:30pm or so. There is not way to darken the room. So, the technician will be stopping by when the problem is not visible (at least to me). So, I have some questions:
1) Is there any point in the technician stopping by? Are they able to recognize and correct a problem like this?
2) Should I forget about the technician and just have Costo send us another unit?
It replaces a LN-T4661F that we bought back in 2007.
The 55" TV fits in the same spot as our 46" TV occupied -- basically a 33" & 58" opening in our entertainment center.
To me, the picture quality is outstanding & I really haven't done anything to it except the basic quick setup.
I remember spending a ton of time fine tuning the original 46" unit.
Quite amazing so far.
also, are there no flashlight issues with this model - I believe it is back lit so this would make sense? I can deal with some clouding, but want to verify there are no flashlight or other drawbacks..
i normally would check the box for version numbers to get a sammy panel. does anyone know if the 50" panels are sammy only or do i need to worry about the dreaded panel lottery?
p.s. what's up with the limited size selection in canada? would prefer a 48" panel but samsung canada only brings this set in starting at 50" -- weird!

I got my parents a UN40H6350 with a T* panel and like it a lot - now I am trying to find a larger version of the set but with a Samsung panel.
I just got the UN48H6350 and tried the same settings and am perplexed by the results. The picture size doesn't fit with overscan turned off and the TV set to "Screen Fit," but it does fit correctly with overscan turned on. And either way I can't get the text to look quite right. It's kind of jaggy no matter what picture size I set the TV to, and regardless of whether I enable or disable overscan.
What am I doing wrong? I just want the TV to render a pixel-perfect 1920x1080 image straight from the computer without any Auto Motion Plus / other post-processing garbage done to the image.
(Also, while it's not relevant to my question, some people seem very interested in which manufacturers make which size panels. My 48" 6350 has version number TS01 which is a Samsung panel I believe. Other than the weird behavior when using it as a secondary computer display, the panel quality is excellent with very even pictures and nice contrast if you play with the settings.)
This was all of course before I knew about this so-called panel lottery. I've seen some mention here of how certain sizes are not affected. Is the 48" part of the lottery? I should be hoping for a T or A? Even if it is one of the lower panels, is it worth keeping for the price I paid?
Will post the version number when I get it. Fingers crossed.
Hopes this helps prospective buyers. One change from last year is that other then the 60" Sharp, only Samsung panels are being placed in the H7150 line. Also curios is the 5500 series that has all Samsung panels. It makes sense that I heard David K say that the 5 and 8 series were very solid but the middle lines were a mixed bag.
Just remember A or M = AU Optronics, T, U, or W = Samsung, and H = Sharp.
