Well my dealer is bringing a third set on Wednesday. They have been great during the entire process but I'm not sure what I'll do if the third set is a dud. This is getting ridiculous. It would be one thing if I was being picky, but these are major flaws (stuck green pixel on first set... Second seems to have major electrical issues... Now randomly ticking and emitting a chemical odor to go with the flashing I posted earlier). This has been a nightmare purchase.

I love the LG. I sit about 8' - 8 1/2' from the screen so the 55" is probably a better size for me for gaming. I'm not sure what it was on the F8500 but I felt some lag during first person shooters on my ps4 even when I switched it to PC mode. There was definitely something going on but I didn't keep it long enough to dig into it. Like everyone else has said the contrast is amazing.

I found an open box at bestbuy for the LG. Turns out they received the box with a hole in the box but the screen was in mint condition. I was a little scared when I read about the motion judder issues with the LG but the employees let me test it in the store with my ps4 and it wasn't too bad for me at all at least on that particular set. Due to it being marked down as an open box and a 10% off open box sets I ended up taking it home for about 2500 after tax. It was definitely worth searching their site on available open box items.

(Consider the 65" OLED model coming out? Big chuck of change, though reports it can be had for $6,2500. What did you pay for the LG EC9300; Best Buy had it down to $2,999 for a while, now back to $3,499.)

I installed two low profile fans in that area powered by one f8500 USB port and a splitter. Very quiet and effective.

Just tried and it helped quite a bit. I'm just getting used to what's adjustable via the user menus and don't want to mess with the already calibrated settings. Is there a way to view the E-manual other than on the display itself?

I have the E-Manual in pdf format. I got it from Samsung's support site.

Great, thanks! I guess I wasn't looking in the right place.
