So anybody else notice a reddish trailing blur around objects that lasts a split second from Xbox 360 when a fast movement takes place? No other material does it, just Xbox. Had an older unit...

Most of the reviews I've read are from people coming from a 5 channel system. I'd be more interested in a review coming from an owner of an 11 channel system, as the people with the 5 channel system...

To the OP's question:

1. Dingy whites / overall brightness (Samsung 8500 is the most improved in this area, but it definitely does not represent all plasmas)
2. Screen door effect
3. Buzzing

When will all channels from local cable providers and satellite companies be in 1080? 4k programming will arrive 10 years after that.

I wouldn't let it bother you. The remaining amount of f8000s in inventory circulating is probably very low, so if you exchange and get one with a visible issue, you would have to return again - by...

F8000 has more local dimming options, slightly better motion handling, and a better looking stand (last one is subjective).

Yikes, that whole right side is lit up like a Christmas tree. I agree with lowering Brightness, but that looks like it is a bigger issue. Try medium pressure massaging with a micro fiber cloth, and...

I think Vizio just uses poor packaging as of late - in reviewing the P series thread, I've read about a lot of damage out of the box.

If anyone prefers the sound with dynamic compression (aka night mode) on, they probably need to find a new hobby.

Content on a blu ray is encoded at 1080p, so a player is basically just reading and transporting the information digitally to your display. This is in contrast to standard definition dvds, which are...

Zephyrzone - what colorspace and color/saturation settings are you using? Keep it in movie mode, but try native color space and color at 55.

Please tell me which FALD tv uses LEDs that are either on or off, with no varying levels of brightness. I don't believe that "technology" is anything new.

If the seller isn't an authorized retailer, I wouldn't do it. If the tv goes out in 2 weeks, Samsung probably won't warranty it if not sold by an authorized retailer.
