**Official Samsung UHD Curved UNxxHU7250 Owners Thread **
Picked this TV up last night at Best Buy (says "New!" on the website and the store didn't even have it on display yet.)
I've got a basement theater so I, honestly, don't care that much about the quality of the TV in my living room. Plus, I'm constrained to 54" of space between two sconces that the lady of the house insists I am not allowed to spackle away, so now I own a curved 55" 4K TV. All good. Looks decent but not any better than the 2011 55" 7-series that got moved to the bedroom.
I've searched for this new model number here (and Google) and I'm coming up empty so perhaps I'm the first to own this? If not, point me to the owner's thread and I'll delete this one.
In the meantime, I'm trying to find some 4K content and found the other threads with torrents to the Samsung demo footage. I've "obtained" it and followed instructions on the other threads and I only see the top left "A" video when playing off a USB in any of the slots... not the whole 4K video with all the sub content. YouTube videos that are supposed to be 4K are definitely not. Hell, I can tell from 14 feet away and two drinks in that I'm looking at compressed/artifacted YouTube trailers pretending to be 1080P.
Anyone have any ideas?
As for the TV, the curved thing is cool but at 55" it seems kind of pointless. My theater screen is a brilliant 120" from a Panasonic AE8000U, so I'm more interested in seeing 4K footage and what I might (hopefully) have in my basement in the next year or so if/when I replace the Panny.
