Also, I am looking for a good 3D BluRay home theater set that will be a good companion for my TV, between $800-$1000, suggestions would be great.

As far as settings go I think you can't go too wrong with trying out the settings given oon the 1st page of this thread. Then maybe tweak them a bit to your own liking.
Also feel the panel type won't play that big a factor.

I enjoy the 3D quite a bit too.
Keep in mind that the picture settings change as you go to a different source.

I have not done any calibration, other than to select movie picture mode. So far we are very happy with the picture in the default settings. I will eventually start to tweak calibration. I'm still in the early stage of getting all the various components set up. Along with the new 7000, I've also upgraded to a Yamaha RX-V671 AVR and a Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray 3D DVD. Each of these components have various combinations of tweaks.

As I mentioned in the previous post I added a Yamaha RX-V671 AVR and a Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray 3D player to my home theater along with the 55" 7000. If you shop around you can get both of these components for around $600. Both have their own threads on AVS with excellent reviews. I'm so far very pleased with set up.

With my 7000 I have not seen any of the negative concerns posted in this thread. My 7000 was manufactured in January 2012 and appears to be the last of the 2011 production run, so maybe the earlier displays in production had the reported issues.

Where do I find my panel number?

The markings on my set are F-301/July 2011. Does that equate to an H-301 panel?

Is yours a 60"? Seems the 60s are marked with F301. I dunno if it's the same as a H.

Yes - I have a UN60D7000 purchased last August.

While I do see some clouding when displaying a black/dark screen, it seems to have settled down over the months - still visible but not as severe. The clouding pattern also seems to change characteristics day by day. It doesn't bother me as I only see this when there is no video displayed or watching 4:3 content. What bothers my eyes more is the stepped/blocky black levels when viewing off-axis.

It's also often mistakenly assumed it's a "defect" with the television. If you watch dark movies, or ones with letterbox bars, it can also be extremely distracting

This "issue" you guys are talking about isn't a defect, it's caused by the edge lighting.
As per the "it's getting worse by day", it's not, once you notice something, your eyes are drawn to it, you continue to look for it. After several weeks it does get a bit better, but I assure you after installing many TV's over the last few years, this "issue" is a lot less on the Samsungs than on other manufacturers. If you can't deal with it, get a plasma, or something with another backlight system.

That's all, simple, but be aware, plasmas have their own much more serious issues. As well, the alternate backlight systems can be much worse with the flashlighting/clouding.

Advice, set the backlight at 8, turn on the eco sensor, set it to bottom out at 4, give it a few days and try not looking for the banding.

well thanks for the article, regarding to the pictures that the site have posted. The last two picture is what relating to my problem. The one before last is starting to show, but not visible during movie viewing. Which I don't mind, though the last picture is circle. I have the banding vertically and horizontally. It's only visible when the frame of the movie move side to side or up and down slowly. Back light at 8 is waaayyy to bright for my room( currently at 5) Luminance is at 33fL. I'll continue to experiments with other stuff like back light. I'll let you guys know if anything improves it.

Personally I keep the contrast less than the brightness. On a day where it is medium cloudy (big picture window on one wall). Contrast for me runs 30-40, brightness ranges typically from 40-60, and BL varies the most between 6 and 16 (when sun is actually in the room).

Eco sensor will work wonders for you, you really should try it.

The 7050 I got two weeks ago has exceeded our expectations in picture quality. We have watched several Blu-Ray and 3D movies and have not had any issues with the picture quality. I'm so happy with the picture, I have not bothered with any of the calibration recommendations posted here. Eventually I will try some of the calibration suggestions, but for now, there is no reason to mess with it.

I'm also very happy I was able to get a 7050 model with the plastic base. I've looked at the aluminum crab leg base 7000's and the black base looks much nicer on our entertainment system.

I'm quite happy with my 60" 7050 as well. Nitra has some great advice on this panel (as do others) that I've been able to use with great satisfaction. And while slightly off-topic, now that I've added an Anthem MRX 500 and Paradigm Sig 1.5r surrounds to my system I'm really enjoying home movie viewing again

#1, some routers broadcast 2.4 and 5ghz, you need to go into the setup of them, I know this is true of my linksys e4200, and set the wireless to manual, and rename the 2.4 and 5ghz to different names. Like My-wifi-2 and mywifi-5, save the settings, reboot the router, then put it back on automatic.

#2, while you have it in manual mode, turn off 40mhz(sometimes called "Wide"), set it back to 20.

#3, after you rename the router bands, you can connect your tv to the 5ghz side.

Carter42:

Did you get this problem resolved?
I just signed up for NetFlix streaming and noticed that I have the same issue with the TV - have to reconnect to the wireless router (enter the WEP PW) every time I go to use NetFlix.

Thanks!

I was wondering if anyone happened to do a calibration on any UNxxD7000 for a 3200K color temperature (studio lighting)? I'd like to adjust a couple of sets (two 46's, one 55) to look good on camera.

Even without an exact calibration, are there any known adjustments that can be done to ballpark that color temp? Anything would be an improvement at this point.

Thanks for any help,
-todd

Ouch, that's a real ask right there, most of the sets, even from factory are based on 6500K, Warm2 is the lowest you'd see without calibrating the set lower.

H303 panel. Light leaks along the top and bottom edges, 2 stuck pixels. Customer services says to run the unit with reduced backlight and into another mode for 2 weeks. need 3 lateral or vertical stuck pixels for the 55" to be serviced.

Please read the following, http://asia.cnet.com/is-tv-brightnes...m-62213336.htm
The light bleed is 100% normal on these sets, it's a function of the edge lighting.
"It's also often mistakenly assumed it's a "defect" with the television. If you watch dark movies, or ones with letterbox bars, it can also be extremely distracting."
Proper use of the backlight combined with the eco sensor can get rid of most of it. Set your backlight to 8, and use the eco sensor, have it bottom out at 4.
I really wish sales people would make people aware of the limitations of current panels, the light bleed is nothing wrong with the set.

The stuck pixels however, that's a return or service issue.
post #2962 of 3296
Is there a way of using wireless headphones with this TV? If so can someone also recommend some that are not very expensive please.

Thanks
post #2963 of 3296
Ninja --- I am aware of the article. Not pointing this out as a defect, but just a comment on the panel as others have made on the other panels. I have lowered the backlight and tweaked some other items so that it is not overly noticeable now. The good news is absolutely no flashligting at all which seems to have been an issue on prior panels before the H303.

Also, remember that these panels have a break-in of 3-4 weeks, that said, call them, those stuck pixels are a total no-no.

This would explain why I have not seen any of these issues. My 7050 was an open box display unit, so the screen was broke in when I purchased it.

You better off get a monitor

Btw after I complain to Samsung about the tv. They decided to send me another replacement. This time they told me that, it's a UN55ES7100XFZ model. Should be here in about a week. Will let you know how it does.

If anyone has been turned down by samsung or a at home service technician, it seems they put some high level techs on the new samsung service twitter account.

@samsungservice Helped tremendously, even after samsung said my panel had no issue. i contacted the twitter account, they asked for screen shots. 1 week later a brand new 301 panel showed up. No more extreme banding !

Thank you samsung Tweeters !

It's best for setting up Home Theater.. Must have one at home..

My first post, great info on here btw.

Anyways, I picked up the UN46D7000 and just couldn't stand the clouding at the edges. Tried some of the recommendations to reduce this but was still visible to the point that I just couldn't stand the thought of owning a tv that is fundamentally flawed. Traded in for the panasonic tcp50st50 and despite the glare i get as my living room isn't ideal for plasmas, i'm still satisfied with my new purchase. It is more acceptable to me that my picture isn't ideal due to placement (only during the day) rather than a flaw in design/technology straight from the factory.

I do have to add that the led was quite spectacular during the day to watch.

Icndy while I can appreciate your comments about your experience I do have to ask if you are so thrilled with your plasma why wasn't your first post on the owners thread fit that TV. I think that if you look at the majority of the posts by actual people that own LED tvs you will find a overwhelming number are completely satisfied with their purchases. I own a UN55D8000 since last Oct. is it perfect? No. Does it have clouding or banding? No. Did I see flash lighting yes with the original setting but after adjusting the brightness and backlight it is gone. So I would not say that it is flawed just that everyone who buys a TV today needs to research and know what each type of TV and what the limit of each technology is.
Plasma by the way is not without it's "FLAWS" also Dimmer picture which may not suit everyone's needs. More heat and higher energy costs. And there is always the burn in. Are these really flaws? No they're limitations of the tech. So buyer be aware but don't let negatives of a few out weigh the positives of many.
