Yardl3y,

I believe cinema smooth can only be turned on if you feed the tv 24p content (such as a blu-ray player set to output blu-rays at 24p)

After so many good reviews about plasma I bought this Samsung 51' F5500. I found it very uncomfortable to my eyes becouse of flicker of PDP (easily seen on static screen by eyes or on camera when in motion). Even watching it at low brightness, after short period I feel me eyes very tired, which lasted 24 hours. On another day after a few minutes I can feel the flicker of PDP, not even on my eyes but my face too (burning sensation). So both PDP and DPL technologies are not for everyone eyes ...

The F5500's price to quality ratio can't be beat by any set right now. My only qualm with this TV is that the glare is terrible during the day but in a dark room this TV's PQ is stunning. The depth and color accuracy is what I like most about this tv.


 


I have tried all the picture settings that I can find on the web including the ones from this forum but I decided to come up with something that is quite easy on the eyes (less eye fatigue). The red on this tv can be too saturated especially noticeable on a white person's face and there's a tad of blue tint noticeable on a dark person's face. I tried my best to eliminate/decrease those tints. I really like the colors to be be as good as like looking outside my window kind of picture. Easy on the eyes. 


 


My picture/calibration setting target: color accuracy, brightness (close to led/lcd brightness as possible), picture depth.


Try watching moving art movies: flowers,oceans,forests, on netflix with this picture settings.


 


For those looking for a picture setting that is very easy on the eyes you might want to give this a try. 


 


My picture settings:


 


Standard picture mode

cell light 18

contrast 90

brightness 44

sharpness 14

color 41

tint 47/53

dynamic contrast off

black tone off

flesh tone 0

color spacing auto

white balance:


R-offset 19


G-offset 23


B-offset 22


R-gain 19


G-gain 23


B-gain 22

gamma 0

motion off

color tone -standard

HDMI black - level normal


everything else off.


 


I use this picture settings on everything - movies, cable tv and ps4 games.


 


Enjoy folks, thank you.  

For the HDMI Black Level set at Normal instead of Low is that because you used RGB Full on the PS4 instead of RGB Limited or is that just how you wanted it? As far as I know when you set the Black Level to Normal it's because the source is outputting RGB Full? Just wanna clarify that in your setting cause if I set the TV to Normal and I don't have the source set to RGB Full it makes it look extremely washed out. Oh and do you also have the Black Optimizer set to Off or in Auto, Bright Room, Dark Room? Along with Digital Clean View and Noise Filter off? Thank you for any reply.

Can someone please check something for me? When you use the info button on the remote, does it bring up the TV's current resolution? I would swear that it used to bring that up.

can someone please give me the dimensions of the stand for the 60" model? I'm hoping to put it on the HT-XT1 which just so happens to support 66lbs....but it's only recommended for sets up to 55"

Thanks!

I dont think those values are correct/accurate?

According to official specs it's 12.6" in length, 3.8" in height but I need to find out the width

Quote:
Set without Stand (WxHxD) (mm)
1396.9 x 831.3 x 57 mm (55" x 32.7" x 2.2")
Set with Stand (WxHxD) (mm)
1396.9 x 928 x 355 mm (55" x 36.5" x 14")
Also, does anyone know the specs of the dual-core and wifi? I doubt it supports wireless AC being a midrange 2013 model but what about dual-band N?

How robust is the Smart Hub for streaming contents off a NAS and PC via DLNA/uPnP/Samba? MKV support? How's the transcoding?

It's the 60. Wish it had the standard rectangular base like my c7000, but it is what it is.

Has anyone done any research on whether a different stand would fit on these, say from a different model or year?


Looking at some of the older Samsung models, the stand was "flat" right after the swivel unit.

Is it more fun to use the equipment or talk about it on AVS?

I tried the stand from my c7000, but it was incompatible.

Question radiation

Hey guys, New topic:

Does anyone feel like their tv is putting out radiation?

I've noticed with the pn51f5500 that after about 1 hour to 1.5 hours is the minimum time in which when I'm done watching I may feel like my skin is a bit flushed. The worst it ever gets is that I may have the slightest of headaches.

Its not just me, my fiance also feels a bit flushed after watching this tv.

For reference, the tv is about 8-10 feet away from the couch.


Anyone else notice this???

It takes almost everything I throw at it. MKV, AVI, MP4, etc. Now, it'll play it, but for some reason does not always allow FF/reverse. It also cannot play 3D mkv's.

I recently got an xbox one, and it's support is much much better. Ff/rewing on all, and supports some 3D mkv's. But for quick and easy shows I still use the TV.

Streaming isn't bad. The UI is clunky and slow. It's never lasted a full movie for me. TV Shows no problem, but seems to have difficulty the longer it has to stream something. Music streams just fine.

Hmm, weird. Well we've had it over a year, and spent lots of time in front of it. Hours on end at times, and I've never had any flushing feeling or warming at all.
