Am I correct in assuming that dedicated 4K AVRs are not available yet? I know that 4K BD players are not available. I agree with this post that says the only logical way to hook stuff up is to an AVR...

Right. I guess that's why so many people complain about motion with these sets, whereas they never did on the ES 8000 and F8000 forums, those sets are 240 cmr. Makes sense.

So the reason these sets refresh rate is 120 Hz is because the panel cannot handle 240? Why can't it, because there are so many more pixels than the 1080 Samsungs (that are 240)?

As I recall I got an extra year being a Costco member, so I think I got a total of 4 years. I bought my Squaretrade warranty on the Costco website.

What he said. People who bought the 2014 sets are hoping the Evolution Kit/ One Connect box will save their sets from obsolescense a year after they bought them. I hope they're right, but I still...

Yeah, it replace my entire chipset with that of the 2013 F8000. But I have the same panel. I have a feeling last years 4k sets had some motion problems the 2015 sets hopefully won't have, so maybe...

Be ready to be disappointed is my advice. Samsung ain't gonna make your TV into some monster machine for $300. I know, I've got an old 1080, but my Evo ($400 sticker, paid $180) got me some jazzy...

The very first Evolution kit (SEK-1000 I think) came out for my TV in 2013. Sticker price: $400 in May I think. I paid $180 around July. If your is anything near what mine was it isn't worth it, it's...

The refresh rate (120hZ) is lower than mine and the F8000 (240hZ) which were 1080 flagship sets. "Ghosting" was not a term used on those forums, motion problems were not mentioned either. I think...

If it's similar to prior Samsung flagship 65" sets (ES8000, F8000 UH9000) I'll guess it's down to about $ $3,500-4k by the end of the year.

I think Samsung has used "dynamic contrast" numbers for a long time. As I recall the native contrast ratio wasn't even included in their stats for years now.

Good luck. DVT and cable channels are mostly 720p upscaled by your gear so it's not gonna look like Bluray or PS4.
