I respectfully disagree with this. The main purpose of the spacers is to get away from mounting to the curved back panel. And I would avoid pushing in on the back panel. If you look in the hole,...

Not in my experience. When I first got my 65, I was bummed at all of this micro-stuttering with various sources. Amazon Video through a Roku, my XBox 360 as a WMC extender (set to 1080p output),...

This is incorrect. The purpose of the Samsung-provided spacers IS to get you to a flat, planar "surface" for mounting. When you insert the four spacers all the way in, they create a new plane that...

I have mine mounted to a "bracket" made of plywood. No problems at all. The spacers are needed due to the fact that the back panel is not flat. It matters not what is between the spacers and...

Regular PS4 outputs at 1080p max, no way to change that. XBox One S upscales everything to 4k (except ULTRA BluRays which don't need to be upscaled). Hence why the tv sees the PS4 as 1080p and the...

I had a bit of buyer's remorse when I got my KS8000 due to a good price. But I think that will change once I start feeding it 4K material. It's more of a situation where I am doing just fine with...
