It is. The B7000 was from Samsung's first gen LED lineup, I believe. It has considerable flash lighting issues - one of the main reasons I'd like to upgrade, along with screen size - but otherwise...

Shoot, that's terrible. There's nothing remotely like this snow / grain issue on my 2009 B7000. That alone is reason enough to avoid the 8550, imho. Does the 9000 display similar snow / grain?

Thanks, Ray. I too was blown away by the 8000 demo that I saw. I'd like to think that the 8550 could match it if tweaked properly, but it's impossible to know. The 8000, being Samsung's top-line...

Thanks a bunch for that, Mr Orange! I'm so tempted to just go for the HU9, but aside from the aspect of cost increase, I'd also much prefer a flat screen to a curved one. At the same time, while this...

Interesting! Do you find Samsung's upscale image softer than what you'd see from the same 1080P source on one of the company's high-end non-4K displays? Say, for example the H8000?

Further to Keyweez's post above, has it been determined that the 9000 does a better job of upscaling than the 8550 does? Also, would greatly appreciate if someone could answer the question I posted...

Could anyone tell me how upconverted DVD's fare on the 8550 (I'd be using an Oppo BDP-83 as a source)?

Would I be correct in presuming that they would look at least as good as they do on Samsung's...

4K material aside, has anyone had the opportunity to compare the HU8550 to the H8000 when it comes to 1080P material? I'm positively floored by the quality of 1080P on the H8000, and I presume HU8550...

Thanks so much for that, T.Man. It sounds like either set would be terrific at the end of the day. If unconverted 1080P material looks roughly no better or worse on the X850, I might try to get one...

Thanks for that! Weird that the x900A would use Quantum Dot but the x850A would omit it. I thought the only difference between the two units was the side-speakers and passive vs active 3d.

Amazing! Thanks! So outside of the stand and some of the software, it's effectively the same set as the F8000, it seems. Now to wait for it to go on sale, lol!

Oops, nevermind, just realized that the upwards curving stand is only on the 46 inch version of this set. The stand on the 55-inch model runs the full width of the screen.

Could someone tell me how wide the stand is on the 55-inch model, particularly, how wide the surface-resting part is (not the part that curves diagonally upwards)?
