I was under the impression that TDXX were manufactured at the same plant as Samsung "in house" plasma displays and the TSXX were the Samsung Korean LCD plant. While both are Samsung built screens I don't know if QC is better at the Korean faculty vs the plasma pkant.?

Does anyone have the 65 inch that can speak of banding? From what I'm reading the 55 seems really good in this area, but we ALL know what tends to happen when the screen size goes up...

Is screen uniformity still strong in the 65 inch? I'm worried about banding in that size. Its a question I can't seem to get an answer to anywhere. lol

I was thinking of purchasing a the H8000, because I was really impressed with the visuals and how good the picture quality looked from all angles. The store in my local area has a good deal on it, and I was wondering if anyone who owns a unit could tell me a bit about it.

I'm finally ready to upgrade my 6+ year old 46" Samsung TV with either the UN65H8000 or the UN65H7150.  For those of you with the H8000 (or anyone with an opinion), does the curve and slightly better specs of the H8000 justify the price difference ($500-$800 depending on source)?

 

Thanks.

I've been following the H7150 Thread since the beginning and I'd go with the H8000. Many have complained about the usual suspects with uniformity, clouding, and black crush. I don't own either but both are serious candidates and I've seen both many times. The PQ looks better on the H8000. The curve is subtle and damn-near non-existent from head-on viewing. So far, no one has reported any issues with the H8000. IMO, it's definitely worth the extra $500.

I have no banding on my 65 h8000. I'll post some pics later. My uniformly is much better than my previous samsung led tvs. I notice two spots on both the left and right corner where you can see light bleed , but its not near the corners its about 5 inches away from the corners. It could be because I have the backlight high at around 14 and I'm in standard mode. You rarely see it. I noticed that one of my apps has disappeared, the foxnow app, does anybody know if its still available? I cant find it in the app section anymore and it was one of my favorite apps.

Do you have the local dimming engaged on the high setting?

Do you have a TS01/TD02 Panel? I was hoping there wasn't any uniformity problems on this set, even if it is barely noticeable.

Thanks for the response.  I looked up the H7150 thread and most people seem to have problems with the 75" tv.  Is this your takeaway as well, or did I miss some posts?  Does anyone else with the H8000 want to Chime in.  I'm wondering about viewing angles.  I live in a city rowhome/townhouse (which means a narrow house). The couch is probably about 6-8 feet away from the tv.  While I'm sure it'll look great for the person right in front of the tv, what about 2,3, or 4 other people that might be watching the tv as well?

Want to note that I have also had 3 Samsung TVs and 2 Sonys in the the past 2 years. Currently the HU9000 also curved - no banding or clouding (thats thanks to the Smart LED system I think). Also no banding with any of my other Samsungs, although they had noticeable clouding.. The Sonys though, they both had noticeable vertical banding, both were w850 65in sets (both were returned). Vertical banding IMO is much more distracting than minor clouding.

I went through 7 f8000 TV's ALL with banding, dead pixeles, 1 with a cracked case that light came out of... That's why I asked about banding on this one as I got my money back and want to go with the H8000 if its "clean". :-)

I've also been hearing if you get a Samsung get one in its "H" stage if you can. Heard the TVs go through better quality control as an "H" then an "F"... That true?

7! that is absolutely insane... i gave up after 2 with Sony haha.. but just in recent experience i've had less problems with Samsung on their panels (maybe not build quality).

? H just means it's this year. They skipped G so F was last year and E or ES/EH was the year before and so on. You definitely want to get a Samsung Panel though. (SQxx/TSxx//THxx/TDxx)

Yep... 7! lol. And now Best Buy doesn't want my business anymore. I'm on a "no return policy" That's OK. Sears is willing to work with me. I told them I'm not your "normal consumer" and want a specific panel type.

"SQ"? Sharp no? Sears will find a TH01 if that's what I want.

Stay away from Sharp Panels unless you're going big. Too many issues with their panels. SQ01/02 is an older Samsung Panel that I don't think they make anymore. THxx is a Samsung Panel but TSxx is the more common one.

Oh I know to stay away from the Sharp panels, I just thought any panel that started with a "T" was Samsung and if starts with something else... Sharp. So "SQ" is still Samsung? That's what I was wondering.

Trust me when I say it has nothing to do with size, non full array local dimming sets will have banding to some degree and other screen uniformity issues. Its part of the technology at hand.........

Well, from what I'm hearing this particular model has licked banding and dirty screen effect, but those were the 55"... Just hoping its the same on the 65"

I remember reading that even some HX950 owners had vertical banding on their FALD sets.. guess no escaping it.

Had the 55" HX950 and it indeed had banding.
