Why, oh why, oh why do people insist in comparing a Kuro with probably a few 1000 hours on it, with the F8500, with relatively few hours on it? (Like some, right out of the box!) As has been...

All our sets say 1120 is the latest greatest. Samsung website still showing 1119. New purchasers saying their sets say manufactured in 2014 and have 1200 for FW. Smells a little funny here!?
