I have a feeling he's right. With the VT60 and Samsung F8500 and the Kuro (legendary plasmas, which I've only read about) I don't think the "panel lottery" applied. And it seems like the VizioP...

75" should be fine from 12'. The F8000 is much like mine with local dimming I think. My set looks great. I think the F8000 is no longer sold by Samsung, and you may have trouble finding one if you...

Dude you got a bad TV. Take it back and get your money back. If you got a new car that wouldn't run would you start tearing the engine apart? :confused:

OK. Do you think a firmware update is supposed to wipe all your various picture settings? And if so can a person replicate your calibration after it does? I guess I remember calibrators of Sammys...

I believe the UH9000 is currently Samsung's flagship model, following in the steps of the F9000 (4K, 2013, upgradable to UH9000 with EvoKit), F8000 (2013), and ES8000 (2012, upgradable to F8000).

Samsung owners were able to update the Amazon 4k app without a firmware update. They long pressed the Amazon app on the Smarthub and it says it will update. My opinion of firmware updates is they...

There is a 3D content forum which was pretty active when I got my TV in 2012. The 3D movies also look excellent on 1080 sets, I was amazed, and I didn't really think I'd use it much. I think it's the...

Howdy! I have CableOne in Prescott and a Motorola STB. I think it's upscaling all channels to 1080 because that's what shows on my TV screen every time. What I want is for the STB to send the TV the...

It's a Motorola STB. I think the cable guy set it to upscale every channel to 1080p, because that's what every channel shows on the TV screen now. What I want is for every channel to go to the TV in...

What he said. Especially about the Best Buy thing. That's the last place I'd go to make a decision on a TV. Never bought one there either. (BTW I have the same TV as the OP).

Uh huh. And listening to the new Led Zeppelin I album on vinyl remastered by Jimmy Page ($50 including concert LP too) is just like being there (I almost bought it lol).

Really? I get most of the channels in 1080p, it says that on the screen when I change channel. I use CableOne. I did have to have the guy go to the service menu on the STB before it would show in...

I think most people set Auto Motion Plus to Clear if my memory serves me correctly. I've not seen anyone set it to anything else.

The way I understand it no AVR that you can buy today will be useful as it is with true 4k content, like 4k Bluray Discs (when they become available). You do not want the AVR nor the BD player to...

I think that Disney WOW disc is a good thing for 10 point "greyscale" calibration which could help with blacks. That's the one with 10, 20, 30, 40 etc. It's not adjustable in all picture settings,...

What's the difference between the 8550 and the 9000? I assume the 8550 costs less. I know that last years flagship, F9000, is identical to this years flagship UH9000 if you buy the Evolution Kit...
