post #151 of 12492
Got the LN52A750 from CC cheaper than I would have buying from Big River. I had them match the deep discounted price that HHgregg gave me and also used AAA 8% discount on top of that with 3 yr warranty for under $2800 for everything. Awesome. I will post pics of my setup which includes X360 hd addon, PS3 60gb, DTV HR20700, xbox modded,phillips upconvert hdd divx dvd player and GE, mediacom cable box, GE 3 disc dvd changer. I have PS3 using hdmi, X360 using component and DTV HR20700 using hdmi. All are connected to Onkyo TX-SR804s reciver and hdmi and component cables going to TV. Im still messing with calibration color. TV is beautiful. Hopefully someone will tell me why it still shows resolution and source 60hz, i though it would show 120hz, it does show 60hz for my ps3 as well, i thought at least the ps3 would show as 120hz..so if someone could explain or help with this. Still got a lot to learn about this tv. I have znutts calibration settings currently for viewing all, not sure if it is optimal for gaming.

Can you do me a favor, play the resistence demo and see if you get vapor and studder on it. I have basicly znuts setting which are great for gaming but I have sharpness and contrast up and AMP on medium.

I gotta say that's a deal! Congrats.

Just got my 750 2 days ago. I took back a Sony XBR4 because of the fan noise.

The 750 does not clean up SD signals like the XBR4 does which is too bad. SD text and faces get a very checker board looking.

There is still fan noise from the 750 although not as bad as the XBR.

I have no smearing and my 750 handles motion much better than the Sony.

Anyone know how to completely eliminate fan noise, because that is the most important thing to me right now. I'd rather have a tv that smells like a dead rat than noise. The glare from the plastic boarder is also a distraction a night but no big deal. Anyone have good settings for SD?

The source is 60hz. The TV converts to 120hz.

Hey i have a favor to ask of a 750 owner. If possible could you post a picture of what the halo effect looks like at night/or lights off? Its hard to tell at best buy because of all the lighting, so could somone just post a picture showing what this looks like, i'd like to be able to have a general idea what i would be dealing with. Thanks in advance!

My biggest gripe about the A750 is that SD looks awfull. I wish that Samsung would include a feature to allow me to shring SD programming to a smaller size, so I can make it look better. In fact, my wife thinks th set is too big anyhow, so it would be cool if she could shrink any program to her liking.

I have not noticed any fan noise at all. I'll listen again to see if I can hear any, but I don't think I will.

As for motion, I have not seen any motion blur at all, yet. I am still putting it through its paces.

With lights off, I don't see any halo effect at all. In fact, I don't see it often. I'll try to get some pics. That will give me an excuse to play with my wife's new Pentax K200D

Anyone know the code for the included remote control so that I may control the TV from my fancy-dancy universal remote?

Here are some pictures in the dark. I would like to see some pics of how people are fixing this with the tape around the bezel and what type of tape is used. It really doesnt bother me but could easily be fixed with some tape around the inside lip of the bezel as suggested before.

I don't know whether you've been tweaking them but the default "out of the box" settings look awful period, in my opinion.

You can obtain huge improvements on the previous Samsung LCD models by adjusting the settings, so I'm certain the A750 will be the same.

FYI...it's 'stutter', not 'studder'

Oh yeah stutter what was I thinking!

dms541, the dimensions of the stand for all A750 models can be found in the user manual or at least the PDF version. Look at the end of the last section in the manual.

I am a new owner of an 40a750 but it will not arrive until next week.

Sorry to hear that

Can you let me know the argument that both you and samsung put up about it? I'm waiting for them to call me back to exchange my 71. I want to have the best case possible to fight them about it also, thanks

On another note:
Has anyone confirmed the whole response time discrepancy between the 650 and 750 being 4ms or 6ms? On Samsungs website it still says the 750 has a 6ms response time.

It's weird because on the 650's "Main Features" it talks about the 4ms response time, however the 750's "Main Features" do not mention it.

I play resistance on the 'game' mode. Very smooth. I played about 4.5hrs of COD4 last night on that setting too.

Issues:
1) halo effect while watching Hellboy (BR). Not once during 'No country for old men' though.
2) clouding when the screen is black (during HDMI handshaking). I loosened all the screws on the back and that pretty much fixed it ... until it falls apart of course.
3) I think I also have 'flashlights' in the corners but I really have to look for them. It's so minor I don't even care.

I still have 10 days to return/exchange it so I'll keep an eye out for any other imperfections.

Side note, I can't believe I'm already use to the 10" gain over my old 42" westy! I might have to go the projector route next time to get the immersion effect.

Glad you are enjoying it, can you do me a favor play resistance on on normal picture setting with AMP on medium (dont do game mode) and tell me what you get. Thanks
post #171 of 12492
It seemed sluggish. I had to turn AMP up to high to smooth out the play but I got that annoying triple cross hair effect.

Unfortunately, I think this technology is still in it's infancy (should be pretty solid in another year or so).

Imagine what this monitor would have cost a couple of years ago.

So, we have stuttering and clouding on these sets. Are these fairly isolated events, or are they fairly common?
When it comes to videogames, rather than using game mode, which allows for no adjustments, can you use some other mode and simply turn off the extra processing, and get acceptable results (in terms of lag, smearing etc.)?
post #173 of 12492
HMMM

I just checked my email just now and got an email from samsung. the subject header read- we changed the exchange option. OH CRAP! maybe I will get a 750- but alas when i look in the email it still says 650. WTF! Who knows- i have to call back on monday now- surprise surprise

Please refrain from stating that stutter is a widespread problem on these sets. This is how rumors get started and in Samsung circles stutter makes 4 letter words look ripe for Sesame Street. The fact is, the only 750 owner who has noticed stutter so far is Lestat Phoenix. Until more people state that this is an issue it should be regarded as a defect to his set.

Clouding and mura are common to all LCDs. It's just a part of the assembly process. Sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you don't.

I originally forgot there was a game mode so I had all the modes off. I actually play GTA4 w/ game off and custom settings. I think FPS are too taxing for on the onboard processor because GTA4 runs smooth w/o game mode (just a theory).

Gaming is the only thing I need to tweak with this set. BR movies look fantastic.

Clouding isn't a big deal if you don't mind loosing the screws in the back a little.

The halo thing of course can only be 'fixed' by putting black tape around the edges and that's a little ghetto after spending 3k.

Game mode you cant touch any or most of the options, that is why i dont use it.

I absolutely agree with this, the only common complaint with the A750 is the Halo effect which, as you put in the first post, seems to bother some and not others. Stutter has only, at this stage, been reported by Lestat Phoenix.

We should keep an eye on this though.

Despite sharing manufacturing plants for many panels in a joint venture, recent Sony LCDs have seen far higher instances of clouding / mura than Samsung TV's.

I can testify to this having had 5 different TV's across two ranges whilst Samsung attempt to rectify the Hum Bars fault here in the UK. (I posted about this on the first page of the thread hoping A750 owners would look for the fault - no reply as yet).

Anyway out of those 5 only one had intrusive clouding. It's not been a widespread problem with previous Samsung models so we need to monitor this with the A750.

Cheers.

Olivenone (spelling) reported stuttering, also I have had two 750's both with vapor and stutter on medium AMP, lets hope were the only ones with this problem. Going back to get number three today, will report back if i have another dud..

Exactly, doesn't anyone have a problem with these "fixes" for a 3K TV. I mean, nothing is perfect, but this seem a little silly. Tape, loosening screws...on a new TV?
