Can anyone that has this set help me out? I just purchased a new 60" F5300 the picture quality is good but the reflections I'm getting on it are terrible. I wouldn't say that I have a real bright room but I do have two windows across the room from the tv. Watching it today even with the blinds and curtains closed I could still see reflections of them in the tv and it made it tough to watch anything. Many nights my wife will also read a book with a lamp on also. I'm not sure if it's because this tv doesn't have a filter or if it's because it just can't get bright enough during the day but either way the reflections are a deal breaker. So my question is would a E6500 handle my situation better or would I be better off going to an LED?

The E7000 had a decent filter, but not sure about E6500. The 530 and 550 series are very reflective, but I prefer the glossy look if you can control glare. Unfortunately, the entry level models from all manufacturers are reflective. So you may have to step up to a Panasonic ST60, and I am not sure if the 5500 from Samsung this year will add a better filter. Some LEDs are also very glossy, whereas others are semi-matte. You will have to look carefully since apparently glare is an issue for you. I believe the Samsung ES6000 LED is semi-matte, whereas higher end models may be ultra clear glossy.

The 6500 definitely does a better job at reducing reflections. The only time I can see a light is when it's reflected right towards me, and even then it isn't too bad. After reading reviews from people who bought anything under a 6500 I couldn't do it. Reflection is a huge dealbreaker, even with me having it in a dark room

Just bought a new 51" e6500. Love it! Better then my LED D7000 tv. Led have uniformity issues in terms of levels so I'm happy with my purchase. I Have a little buzzing but that's normal with plasmas. Any hints on settig gamma though? Not sure how to set without having a fancy spyder calibrater?

Hey gang, I just got a ipad, can I Bluetooth music from my ipad to the tv? I know it has Bluetooth keyboard, but I don't see it anyplace to search for Bluetooth devices?

Try a DLNA enabled app. It should pop up. I like iMediaShare. It works pretty well and will make it easy to stream youtube and other videos to your TV.
