Again, does anyone know of an instructional video that walks one through the process of changing the bulb on this pj?

This is going to sound dorky / naive, but does anyone know of any kind of instructional video for changing the lamp on an AE8000U? I've never done it before and I'm rather terrified of making some...

Spent ages at Future Shop today looking at the 8850. Against all reason, the Sony 850B, which I'd initially written off due to the unit's absurd contrast ratio specs, looked a lot better to me. The...

Gotcha. Thanks. I wonder if this will prove to be available in a future Evolution Kit?

BTW, is it just me, or are there significantly more complaints about software glitches on the 8550 than the...

Question: does the 8550's lacking of the 9000's Purcolor feature put it at a distinct disadvantage between the two sets in the colour dept, or is it mostly marketing speak?

Sadly, no. I mean, I could, but the set wouldn't have any warranty coverage in Canada.:(

Awesome. I've just been so worried about spending for an upgrade that could turn into a downgrade from my 2009 set. I think I'm going to go for the 8550. As an aside, I'm crazy jealous about the...

As long as the 8550 can display 1080P sources well, it's the unit I want to get, as I'd prefer to avoid a curved unit. Are you happy with how blu-ray and dvd sources look on your set?

Hmm, I don't know, what I'm seeing in the posted screen grabs looks more like video noise than any sort of photochemical grain structure. Having said that, both EDGE OF TOMORROW and WORLD WAR Z, the...

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?

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.
