I've been running content on it for a little over 80 hours now, with only running slides while I'm not watching it. I've actually noticed a decrease in the buzzing during normal content viewing. In 3D mode, the buzzing is still very prominent and can be heard over all but loud scenes. I also picked up the Disney WOW calibration bluray and ran it yesterday. This helped me fix several of the problems I was having with the 3D picture.

I had the TV in 16x9 viewing mode, when it should have been on Actual Size. When it was in 16x9, it actually distorted and cropped off some of the image, so when I viewed 3D content it didn't align up perfectly. The 1920x1080 single pixel checkerboard pattern was awesome in helping me correct this and to adjust my HTPC display properly so I could view 3D content through XBMC as well. Keeping 3D Perspective set at 0 also helped.

I have noticed a little image retention after leaving it on Animal Planet over night, the logo in the corner stuck around for a few minutes. I was also going through the Comcast OnDemand menu for about 20 minutes one night and it stuck around for a minute. Both times, it quickly vanished by just watching normal content. I also have one pixel in the middle of the screen that won't display the color red. I tried the Disney WOW pixel flipper, but that didn't help it.

Other than a lack of buzzing, the only two things I wish this TV had would be the Amazon VOD app (although, I have this on my HTPC) and audio out through the HDMI. That way I could hear the sound from the SmartHub apps through my AVR. I believe the only way to do this is with an optical cable. I'm still deciding if I'm going to keep the E6500, or try and exchange it, but other than the buzzing it's an awesome TV. The picture, after just calibrating it myself, is nothing short of amazing.

The image retention should fade over time that is what it has done on almost all previous models.

Every Sammy I have ever owned has always had some type of stuck pixel problem with in the first few days...Sammy seems like the buy again this year but i feel there TV's are made like crap...always had LCD's(IMO garbage) then a KURO(2 of them) so im used to the awesomeness of the best plasma ever made. Never owned a PAnny but hear great things but Sammy PQ is very nice just worried about whats making the PQ work

Im not sure whaT 49fl means, is that verybright? Also where can I buy a 64 inch version of the e6500 Are they making a 64 inch version. I dont need all that internet stuff and camera! The e6500 seems to be the bang for buck plasma in the Samsung lineup.

If you want a 64 you have to step up to the e7000. 40fl. Should be plenty unless you have a very bright viewing environment

Hey Andrian s thank you for the info.

Any chance you can post some pics of the tv to see the aesthetics?

Also can you comment on the smart hub features? Since this has a single core cpu does internet browsing seems laggy? Do you notice any form of lag during the use of smart hub (in term of response).

40ftl seems pretty fine for daylight use.

One think that worries me with the real black filter and i hope samsung has fixed it ...is the pilling issue the d7000/8000 had.

Any other think you can comment on will be very helpfull since im on the look out for this model.

I'm not having any luck finding this tv at any local store. The only places I see that carry them are online. I want to see it before I buy it. Is there a release date for retail locations ?

The SmartHub is ok, I notice a little lag in the menus but nothing that makes it unusable. I can see how a dual-core processor would make it faster. I tried using the browser, but using just the standard remote with the browser is incredibly difficult. If I want to look something up it'll be faster for me to use my computer in the next room. You can hook up a keyboard and mouse to the TV for use with the browser, when I get home I will try that out.

If you're looking at a good way to stream videos and music from your computer to your TV, the SmartHub's AllAcces does an excellent job at it if you don't have an HTPC. You have to install a program from Samsung on your computer first to share it with your TV. Most of the files I tried played fine on it, and I didn't notice any sound dropping out like I've heard someone else mention. I did have one .avi file not play that played fine through my HTPC, so not everything is supported.

For the price difference between the E6500 and E7000, you could instead get an Apple TV, Roku, or build an HTPC that would do a lot of the same things but better. There's some debate on if the dual-core processor will actually help the PQ of the E7000. I'm betting it won't help for normal content, but I can't wait to see some comparisons.

Hi all!

i got myself a PS51E6500 and need a little help with it. It seems that i cant seem to find the picture option "Actual Size", how do You set it ? I have an "Auto Wide" option on the Screen Adjustment menu, but it is grayed out at all times.
I managed to get a good picture on my laptop over hdmi, after i set the overscan to 0% in ATI control panel. Help is appreciated, and excuse my English as it isn't my mother-language

Br,
zaitz

I apologize, it's called Screen Fit. I was going off of memory when I wrote that. I'll fix.

I'm new to plasmas, so forgive me if this has been discussed before. The only negative I have so far about the E6500 is that I noticed brightness fluctuation while watching hockey the other night. It only happened once, but it caught me by surprise. Eco-sensor is off...is this common, and is it just something I need to live with? Thanks!

Thanks for pointing me to this realzven. The TV is pretty much out of the box, in standard mode, with no calibration...yet.

At the moment i'm disappointed about the 3d experience, my mate has an LG LW5500 and when we tried his tv on various 3d movies, youtube clips etc. then objects appeared to come out of the tv. On my E6500 nothing is coming out of the screen it just adds some depth to the movie, i dont get it why, is the active technology so much worse ?

Although I don't understand the difference I have noticed that LG's passive technology which is the same to what you see in the theaters does appear to come out and the active tech seems to go in like looking through a window. Its give and take on the tech the active keeps 1080p resolution but i heard that the passive needs to lower the resolution because the tv is doing the shutter work or something so its at 720p. On a larger screen this could be a noticeable difference. I am looking at getting the 6500 but do prefer the picture to come out but 3d is not the main goal for me. if any one finds a pro review please post it this thing is so new i can't find much on it. On a quick not though i have noticed that Fry's at least in cali seems to have the tv in stock

The 2011 3D glasses model 3050GB came with my PN64E8000,.so these are indded 2011 models and they obviously work on the 2012 E8000. I think some are getting the newer 1400GB model 3D glasses which are the actual 2012 models. The 2012 model glasses appear to be a bit smaller and a tad less weight but one person noted that the 3050GB's fit him better and had better eye coverage...
