Just trying to figure out if I'm on the right thread for the UN557050. I couldn't find another owners thread for it.

You are.

Thanks nitra!

Over the weekend I got a deal at Costco on their last UN55D7050, which was on display. It was marked down to $1549, but they could not find the remote, two 3D glasses, and docs, so they knocked another $200 off, so I got it for $1349. It also came with the Costco 2 year warranty. After wiping some dust and finger prints it as good as coming out of the box. I ordered the remote and 3D glasses online for $140 and downloaded the ops manual. The 7050 replaces our 7 year old Samsung 50" DLP, which was still working great.

My wife was not sure why I wanted to replace our Samsung DLP, but I told her for the price and the quality of the picture, it was a deal not to pass up. After watching our first 1080P Blu-ray movie (Gangs of New York) on the 7050, she was blown away with how life like the picture was. She said it was like watching a stage play, not a movie. So now I got her approval on the purchase. I like the clear plastic thin frame around the screen, it makes the picture look like its floating on the wall.

But as always happens when I upgrade some electronics, there is a ripple effect. Now with the new 7050, I need a new 3D Blu-ray player. But to use the new 3D Blue-ray player, I need to upgrade my AV receiver to a new one that supports HDMI 1.4.

Yeah, thats the one I got as well (tho not at that price!) about a month ago. I believe costco calls it 7050 as opposed to 7000 so they dont have to price match. I started with Droozy's settings then mixed and matched between this thread and D8000 thread, then fine tuned with my eye. This panel (h302) is simply gorgeous and seemingly flawless, I dont see any flaws that have been discussed. Although as I mentioned above I haven't used a calibration disc as yet. Be sure to let us know how yours came out.

Funny! I just went through an almost identical process, except that I upgraded from an older Mitsubishi RPT to the 7050 from Costco. Used Nitra's settings and will have a calibration done later this year. Of course I also needed to upgrade my Blu-Ray player to a 3D player and today I just purchased an Anthem MRX 500 and new in-ceiling Paradigm Signature 1.5's for my surround. Looks like the only piece I will be keeping from my original setup will be my Proceed AMP5 and My Linn 51XX speakers across the front.

I'm very happy with the Samsung, especially when considering what I upgraded from, but I hope after the next round of installation I'll be set for a while. Oh wait, I need a Harmony 900 now too!

Thanks for explanation on model number. Costco always seems to have a slightly different numbering system from other retailers, and the price match reason now makes since. I've also noted my set has the black plastic base as opposed to the crab leg aluminum (I prefer the black plastic base my self, matches my entertainment center. Is the base a Costco thing?

I pursued through this thread noting issues with the display, and have to say I see none of the issues with my 7000. The picture is just unbelievable sharp and bright. I'll try tweaking some of the settings when I get my remote, using the buttons on the back are a pain in the rear.

I started on AVS back when I first got my Samsung HLP5063 at Christmas 2004. At that time trying to find HD content was difficult, now it is commonplace. I use the Direct TV HD package and I'm very happy with it. I eventually added an HD-DVD (we all know what happen there), then went to Blu-ray. So my next evolution is 3D.

This is how the 7000 fits into my entertainment center, it seems custom matched for my Ikea Besta. Behind the 7000 we have neutral grey blinds on a window which helps to set off the picture better.



Also I can highly recommend these Ikea LED lighting strips to add ambient lighting to the neutral gray shades I have behind the 7000. I had these on my Sammy DLP and moved them to the 7000. I'm still in the process of concealing the wires.



My wife uses Skype almost daily to talk to her parents in Russia. I'm thinking of adding the camera to my 7000. Does anyone have any experience with Skype and the camera on the 7000?

Hmmm...interesting about the black base. What's the model number and mfg. date written on the back of the TV?

I bought the Skype camera and it works great. Clear images.

The black base and transparent bezel is the primary reason I want the Costco version (7050). I'll take either the 55 or 60 inch. My coworker will be taking me there today at lunchtime to check availability. Hope they have one for me!

Thanks for the info everyone.

I've been reading a lot of technical "specs" for the d7000 60" LED that give a lot of numbers regarding input lag and motion blur.

I'm simply wondering, can you play games on-line adequately? Thanks!!
post #2892 of 3291
Update on my TV.

History: Purchased in December. Starting seeing a small, bright white line going from the right corner to the middle of the screen. Slowly got bigger and wider. Now have 2 white lines. Tech repair said uniformity issue and the panel needed to be replaced. However, after 2 months of looking for a panel (mine is the 60 inch D7000), they gave up.

So contacted hhgreg to do a replacement. But they don't have any more 60D7000s. They also don't have any 2012 60ES7500. So finally called Samsung. They were very easy to work with and very understanding (I was surprised how easy this has been now that I'm working directly with Samsung). They agreed to replace the TV with the ES7500. Below is offer (Email):

Can someone give a quick explanation of the uniformity issue. I think I may have this with my TV, but not 100% positive. Thanks.

Have a read at this, http://asia.cnet.com/is-tv-brightnes...m-62213336.htm
That is considered normal, and not a defect.
Most panels also have some banding that's visible with some greys, this also isn't a defect, it will generally show with an IRE of about 10%, it is related to the brightness above.

If however, you have bright banding, streaking like water running down a window, or banding that's visible all the time, no matter what the color or IRE, that may be an issue.
As mentioned in the CNet article, a lot of these issues mentioned are incorrectly attributed to defects.

Mine plays fine, I've only encountered one game "Sonic Generations" that required me to turn on game mode. I have everything passing into a Denon AVR which auto detects content, games, movies etc.

I'm looking at getting a Denon AVR, which model do you have?
post #2898 of 3291
3311-CI

Some lesser models of the Denons don't have "RGB Enhanced" settings, make sure yours does before you buy it, if not, it can clip black levels.

Thanks, I'm looking at the Denon AVR-1613. I'll double check the spec's.

1) I have all of my HDMI inputs through my stereo receiver. I just realized, however, that it may be better to have through the TV so that each is dialed in specifically to the settings I want for that input?

2) I can not figure out how to get the QWERTY remote to work ... I finally got it so it paired, and I see what I'm typing on its keyboard, but the TV does not respond at all ... ?????

Unfortunately very few functions on the TV actually make use of the keyboard. The Internet does, but only if you select the address bar or entry field and press of the colored buttons. It does not work at all on the Youtube app and will only work in a few other places. Sadly it was badly implemented and not supported by most Smart TV apps.
post #2902 of 3291
and do you agree it's better that different hdmi inputs go through the tv as to get specific settings per input?

Is there a calibration thread on this forum? I can't seem to find it, except for the samsung D7000 plasmas .. ???

Yeah, I'd love to see the "generally accepted best" calibration settings for the ES7500 too (I get mine soon...)

It's under display calibration. I calibrate the tv my self, using colorimeter and CalMAN. It's just an entry level, software cost $200 and colorimeter cost $150.
post #2906 of 3291
That $150 colorimeter has some serious issues with greens, it's been documented.
Here's my ISF on the H303 panel.

The Eyeone D2 is what I'm using, didn't notice any green problem. I have tried your setting Nitra and ran some test with colorimeter. My room is completely dark, when I took gamut measurement, color and gamma. It's way off, what in saying you can't just take some one else settings and put it on your tv. My last panel have more red, the replacement have more blue. It's my 2 cents for those to keep in mind.

Back to uniformity issues, since my backlight is set at 5 to get the right lighting for my room. I can still see it. Remember the picture I posted? You can see those darker bands, it's very annoying when I'm watching TV.

Sure you can. Nitra's ISF settings are much better than the factory default settings and made a huge improvement on my TV. Isn't that what it's all about?
post #2909 of 3291
I have a minor request if anyone is willing to help. Is there anyone out there in MN that has a Colorimeter that I may have the chance to borrow for some calibration. I wasn't very smart with my purchases and got a copy of CalMAN before getting a colorimeter and now I am short on cash and can't afford one for quite a while.. oops :-p

How do you know that your RGB aren't off from 10IRE to 100IRE? How do you know that your Gamut for Red, Green and blue DeltaL and Lumi isn't off. Cyan, Magenta, Yellow hue have to match each other. 10-100 IRE gamma is at 2.2? Let say your graph dips
