Ok, normal or no? Obviously disregard the light source in the bottom right. It was the loading icon on the game.

My 75 inch does not cloud like that, so I would say no.

Does it affect the picture when not a black screen?

I'd love to get my hands on a Blu Monster's Ball.-LilStinky

Refering to a possible release of said movie on BD LOL

I can't notice when content is playing at all and think the set is gorgeous. I was just curious if this is what people consider bad or normal.

Every panel is different. If it is not affecting your content including dark scenes, might be ok. Guess it boils down to what you will tolerate. It def clouds more than mine, in fact, I don't get clouding, just some flashlight in the lower right.

Yes and no, some panels are worse than others. You will notice it when watching movies such as gravity or any space scenes, or very dark backgrounds. BUT if it doesn't bother you, enjoy your set. That's all that matters.

Picked up my 65h7100 last night, a TH01 made in Mexico.

Spent the day experimenting with previous forum settings and the WOW disk. Still tweaking different modes.

A great picture from antenna, cable and bluray.

Wireless internet is a little slow but workable.

Voice commands work great.

No regrets......................

This is (unfortunately) to be considered rather normal with LED TV's in general. I have seen many LED TV's that are even much worse that that. I have to say mine does not show such clouding, but that's not considered terrible in the world of LED TV's. I also assume that camera exposure makes it look a little worse on the picture you posted than what you are actually seeing. I'd recommend setting your backlight not too high: 8 is totally fine, and for night time viewing you can go down to 6. That helps further with reducing any clouding effects... Hopefully the replacement you'll get ends up being better anyway...

I took a look at a 75H7150 and they also had a 75H6350 which actually looked better, though both looked bad. I'm sure the super crappy live football feed didn't help one bit.
H7150 can produce a very good picture (with proper settings), as Urza stated as well. So don't go just by having a quick look and comparing in a store. All TV's are set to dynamic mode for in-store viewing and offer no good comparison at all. I could make almost any TV look better than sometimes even the top models in a store just by switching it to a more accurate mode (e.g. movie instead of dynamic) and tweaking a couple of basic settings. Now, the F8500 plasma will indeed have better PQ particularly with depth of blacks, but the difference may not be necessarily "drastic", although noticeable... So if you want the best PQ you can get, go with plasma...

I keep wavering back and forth. It doesn't help that I'm in the midst of a remodel and won't be able to commit to a set for another month or so. After I made that post I saw your screenshots in the Vizio thread. Now I'm again leaning towards the 75H7150.

10" is a lot to give up for the plasma, but then the plasma is $1K less too.

I actually did some searching (found this via Amazon reviews of all places) and read to turn off the Instant On feature. Once I turned this off, TV is functioning as it should. I think I remember the Instant On feature during the initial set up but didn't think anything of it as I just wanted to get the TV set up so I could start watching. If you have this on maybe try turning it off as it helped me. Thanks for your help.

By the way, I ended up getting my set replaced... Started noticing a strange thing with the right side of the panel getting brighter than the left, as if LEDs lined up on the right edge were brighter than the ones on the left edge (not light bleed or clouding, just stronger LEDs ). Anyway, I calibrated the new set and here are also those settings, in case they turn out to translate better on some of the sets out there... Note I calibrated the DAY-CAL mode, and this time went for darkest black tone setting, just to see if it helps any with deepest black possible. On that note, the new set measured a great MLL of 0.002 fL! I will probably do some more calibrating on the set later on, but this is what I have settled on so far:

--Picture menu--
Mode: CAL-DAY
Backlight: 8

NOTE re. backlight: 8 is good all-around, but for nighttime 6 is actually enough, and for bright rooms during day one can bump it up to 10 or as needed...

Contrast: 99
Brightness: 47
Sharpness: 0 (if compelled to give a little extra sharpness, one can go to +3 without introducing artifacts, but not beyond that)
Color: 51
Tint: G50/R50

3D submenu: N/A

PIP: N/A

--Advanced settings--
Dynamic contrast: Off (Some may prefer to set it to "low", but for true color accuracy it should be "off")
Black tone: Dark
Flesh tone: 0
RGB Only Mode: Off
Color space: Custom [see below]
White Balance: [see below]
10p White Balance: On
Gamma: 0
Motion Lighting: Off [grayed out]

--Color Space--
Color Space: Custom
Red: Red 49, Green 0, Blue 0
Green: Red 15, Green 49, Blue 0
Blue: Red 0, Green 11, Blue 49
Yellow: Red 53, Green 49, Blue 0
Cyan: Red 0, Green 51, Blue 51
Magenta: Red 48, Green 12, Blue 50

White balance:
2 Point:
R-Offset: -6
G-Offset: -2
B-Offset: -1
R-Gain: +5
G-Gain: -2
B-Gain: -9


10 Point:
10%: Red +48, Green +50, Blue +36
20%: Red +47, Green +44, Blue +50
30%: Red +34, Green +36, Blue +43
40%: Red -27, Green -26, Blue -25
50%: Red -40, Green -38, Blue -34
60%: Red -31, Green -29, Blue -26
70%: Red -24, Green -20, Blue -16
80%: Red -13, Green -9, Blue -9
90%: Red -7, Green -4, Blue -4
100%: Red -2, Green 0, Blue 0

--Picture options--
Color tone: Warm2
Digital Clean View: Off
MPEG Noise Filter: Off
HDMI black level: Low / Normal (depending on source - cable box is good on "low", BluRay will usually be "normal")
Film mode: Auto 2
Auto Motion Plus: Clear
Cinema Black: High

Auto Motion Plus submenu ("clear" actually works well, but if customized I use these settings):
Blur reduction: 10
Judder reduction: 2
LED Clear Motion: Off

Some have been asking for a setting for sports, that has extra "pop". For that, no other picture mode (like "standard") is actually needed, and one can get the extra "pop" by just cranking up backlight as high as preferred (say 16) and setting dynamic contrast (in advanced settings) to "high"... Not that this is advisable from the calibration standpoint, but for those who may prefer it for sports...

z-mad, does your set not have a smart led option, basically local dimming? Also, I find black crush using any of the black tone settings - have to use off to prevent it. Lowering gamma to -1 otoh appears to not lose the detail, just darken it further.

The H7150 does not have the Smart LED option, only Samsung's hardware based dimming schemes (edge-lit local dimming) have it like your F8000. The H7150 has frame dimming and that's controlled by the Dynamic Contrast option for this television.

As venus explained, H7150 unfortunately does not have the hardware based local dimming (smart LED), which is reserved for last year's F8000 or this year's H8000 (which I would have considered if it wasn't curved ). We have only software based pixel enhancer that is engaged with the dynamic contrast setting.

I can't say that I am seeing crushed blacks with the black tone setting, but that naturally has to do with the gamma calibration and final brightness setting (you may notice my lower end grayscale 10-30% is set high as in that range the TV does have the tendency of too high gamma, and if not corrected could indeed crush dark detail)...

As mentioned, this is just a first pass at DAY-CAL to get the new set ready for viewing, and I do intend to play with some options a little more - certainly may try different gamma options, etc. Actually, I plan on trying even +1 gamma to help lower the gamma in that lower end of the grayscale, expectedly having to therefore raise the gamma in the upper end in the 10-p grayscale settings. I'll see how that works out... Certainly could try the -1 gamma as well, but I'm afraid that might get the lower end gamma rally too high... Let's see

Hey Z on the right side of my set esp closer to the edge it is brighter than other parts of the set, is this the same thing? does not show with content, just pure black screens, loading screen on games, etc.

I had a new update install - 2120.3. Does anyone have any idea on what has been fixed? I guess Samsung like to hide what they are changing.... HU9000 also had an update (**Official Samsung UHD Curved UNxxHU9000 Owners Thread ** ) and I'm wondering if the changes would be the same.

You can always look at Samsung's website where release notes (such as they are) are listed....

While my last panel was "mostly cloudy" I am happy to report that the new one is only "Partly Cloudy". One patch on the top right and I'm satisfied to deal with it. Love this set.

Again, ideal PQ for me is HDMI 4 renamed to PC with everything off, backlight 9, Warm2, and cinema black high

I also assume that camera exposure makes it look a little worse on the picture you posted than what you are actually seeing. I'd recommend setting your backlight not too high: 8 is totally fine, and for night time viewing you can go down to 6. That helps further with reducing any clouding effects... Hopefully the replacement you'll get ends up being better anyway...
Well, I lied, I have clouding.

It was the first time I watched a movie in the dark, which would explain things.I have about as much as the last pic that was posted. Not sure if I want to swap it, since you don't know what you are going to get in return. I don't want to be that guy that swaps TV after TV. Does not appear to affect content except you see the 4 corner's having the usual brightness.

The TV is under two lights, and when those are on, no clouding, so am I being to picky demanding less or no clouding in the dark?


Hmmm what to do.

Hey guys, I've been lurking here for a bit as I am looking for something to replace my old HP 5820md DLP. I think I've decided on a un75h7150, but I just wanted to ask the owners....Would you buy this TV right now? Or is something else coming out you would wait for? This TV is currently $3999 cdn, with Samsung paying the taxes. I was looking at the Sharp 80" UQ, but I can't justify another $1500 for 5".

the 75 1750 is probably the best bang for your buck 70+ with great PQ and great 3D picture. I looked at it briefly when I had to replace a set but I didn't want to pay the extra money so I went with the 70" passive LG. But as a 3D fan I heard the 7150 had very good active 3D.

For those with clouding may I suggest:

Take a microfiber cloth.

Fold it into a square.

Wipe your set from top to bottom.

Use a little pressure when wiping.

I don't own this set but own the ES8000 series and used this method and was able to wipe most of the clouding away.

This helped some with the little flashlighting I had also

I don't understand how this would make a difference. Can you explain it?

I've seen this recommended on the forums before. Something about the pressure, not sure the details.

I don't understand how rubbing glass can have a permanent effect. Yes, rubbing will create static electricity which may have an impact but it would be temporary. If you rubbed hard enough you could damage the coating, obviously not something we would want and why the "use little pressure".

Urban myth maybe?

Received my UN65H7150 today morning and its a TH01 panel.

Will play around with the settings when I get back home from work today.

Anyone got any good calibration settings for the 65" model? Or should I start off with Z-Mad settings (which were for the 75") as they should be pretty close? All my content are played mostly from Netflix or Blu-Ray and hence no cable.
