I don't think that will really do anything. I can hear buzzing specifically from all 4 corners of the set and the back middle. It seems the whole panel buzzes rather than just the power supply. It is...

Looking forward to your thoughts ejcrossl (http://www.avsforum.com/forum/members/8534094-ejcrossl.html). I don't notice any difference with the pentile screen on my 60F5300 from 8' away.

Where in the world did you find the 64H5000 for $802? I haven't seen it drop below $1298.


Do you have the pink tint issue at the bottom of the screen? At this point I'm trying to find someone...

Does yours buzz at those settings on white web pages? Mine does much worse than my Panasonic did, it's really ear piercing. The higher the contrast the louder the buzzing, regardless of cell light...

I find both points hard to believe as the F8500 has measured .0017fL and the H5000 measured .0016fL in that HDTV test review. Unless Samsung has completely changed their driving methods then blacks...

Ya, except cell light doesn't dim full screen whites until about 7, which then makes everything else too dim. I browse the web on this tv more than I watch video, so I don't have much of a choice if...

The point of calibration is to get the picture as close to reference so you are seeing what the film makers intended you to see. Some people don't like a calibrated look and find it too dull or dim....

Cinema Smooth is only turned on when a 24p input is detected. If you are receiving a 60p signal Cinema Smooth is greyed out so it makes no difference whether you turned it on or not.

I had somewhat of the opposite view that you have, since this is kind of a weird time to be buying a tv with plasma getting phased out and OLED/4K coming in. I could have bought a 64F8500 for $2000+,...

I wouldn't pay $400 for a 50" 720p 8G Kuro, especially when you can get a new 1080p Samsung 50" or 60" F5300 for not much more. They should have the same black levels (.004fL).

This is the reason why I don't use eco mode (I have a 60F5300). On low it doesn't dim full white screens at all (like web pages) which is blinding in the dark, and also causes the set to buzz louder....

I don't see any motion blur on true 60fps content. Looks smooth as a babies ass. :)

Are you sure you aren't just seeing pulldown judder from 24p tv programs converted to 59.94 fps for broadcast?

If this is so easy to do and causes no side effects, why in the world aren't black levels tuned to this level out of the box?

I don't have a meter, but I don't notice anything drastically different between 24p/60p content at the same settings. Could you eleborate on why you think it looks "dreadful"?

If it's going in the bedroom, you might want to look at a 60F5300 instead. It's half the price and 10" larger screen.
