post #241 of 7369
Went to BB lst night to see the subject TV. They only had last year's on display so I aksed when they would be getting the "B" model. They told me they had it but could not put it out on display until all the "A" models were sold which could be another 3-4 weeks. What a bummer. I may have even bought it from them if I could have seen it but no way now. This along with their trying to sell me the new "LED" Samsung model really gets to me. That must be the reason I really don't buy any big ticket items there.

Same thing happened with me yesterday, except I went ahead and bought it anyway. You can always return it!

Does the ln52b750 have the Ultra Clear Panel? Samsung website is saying no?

Yes. The box definitely says "Ultra Clear Panel"

From what I can see it has the ultra clear panel with a nice bit of anti-glare coating. I have experience with their coating and it works very well. Off-angle viewers get a full reflection if you are sitting somewhat close but I have a light over my stove directly behind me (ergo facing the TV head on) and all I see is a hazy light, no detail. Turn the light off and its gone.

I got mine on saturday and all i can say is that its amazing!

Ill have a full write-up review on a tech website that i write for in the next couple of days with pictures


just an FYI, zero to no flashlighting, there is one spot that may, and i stress may, have a tiny amount of it but honestly it could have been a reflection off my cell phone light in the room its that minimal....from what i can tell too no clouding at all either!


I need to get to adjust the settingings still, i did them quickly but so far this set rocks

It definitively has "Ultra Clear Panel"



Here is a worst case glare situation. Judge the TV's performance as you please....

Love it. How hard was it putting the stand on such a big set?

It took some creativity, but I did it myself.

thanks

Either you have a black test picture fed to the TV. Or for just a quick check, select Component 1 as your Source, then you'll have a black screen.

I went to Best Buy today to see if they had the same situation and they did. They said it would be 2 or 3 weeks before they could put it on the floor for viewing. However, they told me that they had three in stock and would be glad to sell me one and they even offered to match the price that Fry's was selling them for (which was considerably less). They told me to come back when I'm ready to pull the plug and they will arrange free delivery and hook it up to one device (e.g. cable box, BD player or whatever) and make sure everything looks okay before leaving. So I will probably go back to Fry's this wekk to take one more look before making a final decision.

Can more people that have this TV comment about the SD quality? Comcast just announced more HD channels here in Houston, but there is still plenty of SD that I will have to watch.

I'm interested in the IR problem that's been discussed a few times, how much of a problem is it? I have a Dish 722DVR.

ive had mine for two days now and SD looks decent, not awsome but it will do for me...you have to remeber how big its blowing that 480 signal up to fit either 52 or 46...its livable by all means just sucks after watching 1080i for an hour then switching back...would the SD quality stop me from reccomending this set to anyone? no way, its totaly worth it!

Ditto! It would be nice if everyone who owns the TV and comments on it would include a brief statement about IR interference.

If you explain what the problem is, I will evaluate and comment on how my unit is performing.

The VIP622 DVR is responding to controls if you point the remote directly to it. My DVR is placed inside in one of the compartments of my low TV stand (about 2 feet high from the floor). There's a glass-top table between where I'm sitting and the TV stand, thus blocking the direct path between the DVR remote and the unit. I usually turn OFF / give commands to the DVR by just placing my remote on the table or pointing directly at the TV (not the DVR), and that usually works. Now with the LN46B750, it doesn't. You have to directly have to have a point-to-point path between the remote and the DVR. I tested this by turning the TV OFF, the remote works even if I directly point the DVR remote to the TV.

I used the default remote that came with the DVR and Harmony One. Both behave the same way. If you have a direct point-to-point path to the DVR, then it's fine. I tested it even as far as 10-12 feet away. But if it's not point-to-point, even it's only 3-4 feet away, it won't work.

Would you say it is a bit low for watching when standing up and just right for when you are sitting down? I'd like to get a stand that is right height when seated and but also is not too low when standing up. Do you think a stand that is around 30-32" high would do the trick?

I thought 240Hz was hard coded into the TV, are you saying you can enable/disable the 240Hz?

it can be turned completely off via the picture options menu.

No it can't. Why is there so much confusion about this. The AMP can be turned off.

The 120hz/240hz is always working.

you are confusing the motion enhancement processing , AMP for samsungs, you are confusing this with the refresh rate. the refresh can't be changed. the confusion comes from the way manufacturers tie their motion enhancement to the refresh rate as if they were the same.

The height of my stand is perfect sitting from the couch or sofa, actually a bit higher would be nice. Though with this height, I wouldn't have to look up or down onto the TV screen. I don't like TVs that are placed high up. I don't like straining my neck. This is too low when watching the TV standing up. The rule I guess is your eyes should be on the same level on the middle of the TV screen. Figure it out and make a compromise if you'll be watching the TV most of the time standing up or sitting down.

Another factor to consider is kids, some friends I know of place their TVs high enough not to be touched by toddlers. Though the height of their TVs might not be an optimum one.

I think 30-32" above the floor is about right when viewing this TV standing up or sitting down on a sofa. Sitting down and leaning back, then you can rest your head, would be OK and quite comfortable at this height. Well, it also depends on how far you're watching this TV from though. But generally 32" would be pretty much a standard on most TV stands.

Ok then. My bad.

The TV literally says "Deactivates Auto Motion Plus 240Hz" when you choose "Off". Therein lies my confusion.

hi, I've asked this before on the forum but did not get any answers. Are you having problems outputting 5.1 surround audio, like it appears the B650 has, and if not, how did you set it up to get 5.1 surround. I'm buying a 40" B750 and also have a ps3 and digicorder for digital tv and I want 5.1 with all devices via my YAMAHA HTIB 109 surround pack. If the B750 can't handle this, it would be a dealbreaker.

thx for the help and the pictures.

Not to confuse the issue any more or anything, but I heard that these tv's are not true 120Hz and 240Hz. They interpolate between frames to make it equivalent of 120Hz and 240Hz. The 240Hz adding twice as many frames than the 120Hz.

So if you take two frames from a 60Hz signal, the Samsung 120Hz is actually placing two artificial intermediate frames in between. The 240Hz is putting 4 intermediate frames in. So, in effect, it makes it 120/240Hz, but it's not actually. This is what the AMP is. It's the interpolation between frames that makes it UP TO 120 or 240Hz.

Or, at least, that's my interpretation of it. I very well could be wrong.

Does anyone know is the Auto Wall mount will still work with the new B series? I know it has ex-link but I wanted to make sure it worked prior to upgrading. Thanks.

The optical out on the TV will only output a stereo signal unless the content is coming from an OTA signal.

I've attached the page in the manual that explains this.
