Break in for PN64F8500
Hi, do folks still use USB burn-in patterns like Evangelo's from back in 2005 (I used it on my Pioneer Elite Kuro back in the day). I recently picked up a floor model of the PN64F8500 from Best Buy. They claim it has only had a few days on it and that since it was considered a newer floor model, I could purchase it for $1750 (which I did this past weekend). The story is like this: Once Samsung officially declared that they no longer made this TV, then Best Buy could sell all their floor models. I have been occasionally calling since Black Friday when I missed getting one.
After that sale, Best Buy said they couldn't sell the floor models until Samsung officially declared they were not going to make these TVs. 2 weeks ago, they started selling them and the store by me sold the one they had. I was bummed but then they said they had another one that was out on the floor and it had been out for just a bit. I drove down and paid for delivery and installation and a 5 yr extended for another $500 so I'll have it soon enough. When I get it, wanted to burn it in for 24 hours with the same USB I used and just wanted to get folks' opinions on this.
Also, the sound isn't the best, any suggestions on a sound bar. I kind of like the all in one for ease of installation. This TV isn't replacing my Kuro but is in another room.
