Thanks. I am not one to go on and on about how black a TV needs to be or have. The picture on this TV is fantastic and will be enjoying it for next few years. I think I was expecting too much as I read to deep into this forum.

I am going to try and go back to Fry's for my free glasses.

I can post some pics, but as EvilNui mentioned, camera shots viewed off on an LCD monitor don't necessarily portray depth of black. However, the first 3 shots below (taken with some ambient light) depict what I see... a jet black screen.

Nighttime blacks are still quite deep, but with a little light in the room, any letterbox "glow" is imperceptible.





Adding bright afternoon pics...

I can only imagine this TV with an OPPO 93 or 95 bluy ray player

Man those really are some nice pics. The screen looks really nice. Thanks for posting koffas.

So I got around 50 bones back from Fry's but they would not add the started kit. Their policy is only to price match. Oh well...back to enjoying my TV.

Thanks!

I also want to know if its even possible to add it. Hate to say it but I'm tempted to return it for either 59C8000 or 63C8000

I have attached the two that are the best of my PN51D7000. I have having some issues with keeping my hands still. Oh well.

This is a bright room, but no direct sunlight, as the windows face North, and there is plenty of shade outside before getting into direct sunlight.

your pics are very professional...Samsung is probably selling a few more plasma sets because of your pics

so you feel it's a much better overall set then your C7000?
post #134 of 4123
koffas this tv has some awesome PQ it was plenty of pop
post #135 of 4123
Those pics are amazing. Honestly, why are people complaining about the blacks!? Those easily beat out my CRT's and the PQ overall looks wonderful.
How much of a difference would there be in terms of PQ between the D550 and D7000?
post #136 of 4123
agreed. Great pix. I want one. In fact, I think I will get one :-)

I just bought a D550 and the blacks look considerably worse. But it's hard to say if it's just the picture or if there really is that much difference (due to the real black filter). For the price of the D550, I can't complain, but if I had the money I would get the D7000.

What about the Colors? Yet I'm guessing the processing is the same since they both use the Crystal HD Engine.
Yet if those 2 things are in fact that same as the D550, it looks like it's a matter of shelling out an extra $600 for superior black levels.
And I could care less about all of those other apps which are useless to me. ;p

I will take pictures tonight of my 58VT25 vs 51D7000.

I know, I know, you can't tell from a picture but you will be able to tell the difference when: same light, same carmera, same BD player (ps3), and same movie.

The thread starter has two images that really stand out to me. The one is the Smart TV screen which looks on par with my set but the Bond movie vs what I say on Black Swan last night are not even close (letter box bars). His looks tons darker.

The irony here is that Samsung is a huge competitor to our company (fortunately not their consumer electronics division).
The deeper MLL combined with improved AR/AG filters is a clear improvement vs last year.

The black level on the 51D7000 should appear 3-4x brighter than a (pre-risen) VT25, based on Chad's measurements of the 51D8000.

Should be getting my PN64D7000 on Tuesday! All the other goodies tomorrow. Can't wait.....
post #144 of 4123
Thanks. Just read the review. D7000 is a great TV. Used your settings and looks great!

Thanks carl for posting your pics as well. I love this year's bezel.
post #146 of 4123
The colors definitly look more washed out and far less rich when the lights hitting the screen, but in my case that doesn't matter because I never have the blinds open when I watch movies or game, let alone watching TV which I rarely do anyways nowadays. Ahh, there's always Spongebob. ;p

the reflections are definitely annoying as well...don't know how it compares to previous years but it is very noticable...I also always close my blinds when watching TV but I guess it's just the principle of it

Did I miss this review? and were the settings posted somewhere?
post #149 of 4123
59D7000 arrived this morning. Took down the 58C8000, packed it back up and it will be heading back to Amazon. First impressions are it looks great. Too soon to say much more. Threw on the Shrek DVD for a second since I haven't really seen the 3D before. Looks great!

post #150 of 4123
Hey guys anyone with one of these sets:

Has anyone tried the 3d on these sets??
How is the crosstalk (and if you have seen or owned) compared to the c8000?

Am waiting to have my PS58c7000 (PN58c8000 US) exchanged when these new models come out in Aus. Just curious if the 3d has improved as this was a problem which became worse with later FW updates in Australia and UK.

Great forum, thanks for all the info Koffas and others!!
