Exactly! The thing is like Obamacare: you have to install it to see what's in it lol. I know, it's supposed to make last years' set the same as this years. Stay tuned. What I wanna know is whether...

They should look better on 4k, but that depends on how good they were to start with. If it's Gone With The Wind it would probably look as good on a good 1080p HD TV as it would on a 4k. Blueray is...

I love tech talk! You gotta somehow work " dynamic" and "database" into your description along with some really big numbers. And maybe mention "the Cloud" (nobody really understands the Cloud lol). ...

To me that makes sense. Throughout various TV threads people seem to think one should let the TV do the upscaling, as opposed to the STB or the BD player or whatever. I tried putting my STB to...

I don't give a s#*t what kind of set anyone buys. But in browsing the 4k forums complaints about motion come up not infrequently. And they NEVER came up on 1080 forums. I dn't know if 240hz was the...

I meant the F8000 was the best 1080p LED set. I never watched a plasma but they sound excellent. Everyone with the 1080p's used AMP. Virtually noone changed any motion setting. So the HUD will become...

Well I'm not buying until the TV has HDR and 10 bit color, and 240Hz refresh rate so there's no "ghosting" on the Golf Channel when Rory's ball launches off the tee. The motion thing would cause me...

And what's HDR again? And if it's a good thing and if everything is upgradable except the panel/dimming why can't the OCB include HDR?

I think the dimming algorithm improved about a half hour...

I get that. And you early adapters got the shaft with the motion problems and the refresh rate thing. If you haven't heard about "ghosting" and all that you're lucky, so if they fix that it's good....

The processor upgrade I got in 2013 Evolution kit did nothing (Quad Core). I got a new remote that was no better than the original (and the original doesn't work anymore either). Quantum dots is a PE...

There are many of the reasons I won't jump into the UHD pool for at least another year, maybe 2. Not quite ready for prime time, but you can spend some more money (how much is it, you never said) and...

How much is the new OCB? As I recall the original, which was called the "Evo Kit" (which I bought) retailed for about $400 in 2013. But the price dropped to less than half. I realize the OCB is way...

How much are they getting for the new OCB? Does Samsung tell you what the thing does for your TV, or is it the usual "it's does some amazing things for your UHD viewing experience"?

That's horrible. I got 4 pair, and my TV cost about the same in 2012. I have a feeling it was a mistake.

The "ghosting" is probably an inherent problem with motion and 4k TV's. That was not a problem on 1080p sets that would run at double the refresh rate of the 4k. The other problem (banding) sounds...

Right. I guess that's why so many people complain about motion with these sets, whereas they never did on the ES 8000 and F8000 forums, those sets are 240 cmr. Makes sense.

So the reason these sets refresh rate is 120 Hz is because the panel cannot handle 240? Why can't it, because there are so many more pixels than the 1080 Samsungs (that are 240)?

As I recall I got an extra year being a Costco member, so I think I got a total of 4 years. I bought my Squaretrade warranty on the Costco website.
