I would love to use the break-in slides....anyone have a quick link? Searching has proven tedious. This site is great for all the information, but there's just too much of the same repeated over and over.....with no links.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!1

How about the current fad for orange and teal movies?

Ugh.

Hi Larry. I agree that in the case of B&W with heavy red or green in the 10-30% stimulus areas you can spot it if you are looking for it. Lucky for us, the Samsung C & D 6+ series models will normally eliminate that condition when calibrated.

Yeah, sometimes I like the orange feel, except when it jacks with fleshtones, not impressed with teal.

I have the 59D7000, does this tv have rising blacks over time?

what about the colors do they start to get washed out?

Anybody here who plays video games, have the color up to 70-80?

I noticed for one game the color looked a bit too light, so I jacked it up to 70-80 and it looks better.

Overall the color saturation doesn't dramatically super different from say 50 to 70. I mean there is a difference but it's not like eye bleeding difference. Is that normal?

I noticed nobody jacks up their color past 60 for regular tv why is that?

thanks
post #2978 of 4123
Blacks have not been found to rise, a few of us are testing them. Colors are not going to get washed put over time.

Are you replacing the B650, or is this for a different room? I have the 58B650 downstairs and the 51D7000 upstairs. I would not have replaced the B650 with the 51D7000. The difference between those sets is not enough to justify losing 7".
post #2981 of 4123
Never go down in size.
post #2982 of 4123
Its for the living room and no its not replacing...have that one in another room. 8 inches is a big downsize, but everyone says the PQ on the 7000 is tremendous. So go for the 6500??? Or will i be regretting it down the road???
post #2983 of 4123
Increase your limit.
post #2984 of 4123
I can find it on the internet right now for 1686 - probably without shipping though. I can usually rationalize that I stayed within my budget if it's just shipping or taxes that's taking me over the limit Seriously you might just be able to beat Christmas with a deal you can live with.

I play 360 and PS3, but play o Dynamic setting for gaming. Color is at 60 I think. I also don't use game mode. I like colors to pop for games, but setting color at 80 sounds a bit much.

I have a stupid question for you guys.. Can I use any 3d glasses with my 59d7000?
post #2987 of 4123
No. Go to almost any site - Amazon, Crutchfield, wherever. Each set of glasses has a listing of compatible TVs. In particular, there is a distinction between 2010 and 2011 Samsung TV compatibility.

Correct. 2010 Samsung glasses/TV's use IR, 2011 uses Bluetooth.

A page or so back I and many others have addressed that at length. Short answer not a problem really. Just follow basic plasma common sense, which you will understand once you browse this tread.

Overall best TV of 2011 and thats the truth. CNet.com and Home Theater Mag both agree.

Image retention is very, very real. Technically, so is burn-in, as I have seen it myself on my own Panny plasma downstairs, though that is not this television. I'm taking extra super precautions with my television when it comes to how I watch my movies, play my games, and run my slides. I've seen IR in many instances of doing certain things (even after a lot of break-in), but as long as it can go away, it is not a problem for me.

My two biggest problems are buzzing and fluctuating brightness, in that order.
post #2994 of 4123
Ok my PN59D7000 just arrived and although it was rated the best plasma tv for 2011 I was a bit nervous due to all the confirmed issues with this set. So here is a quick run down of my experience for all that are looking to buy or are curious. Purchased from Vanns and was fulfilled by Amazon. Manufactured in Aug 2011 from Mexico. Upon a very rigorous inspection before testing I did NOT notice any peeling of any kind. Once I got it up and running I was able to hear the buzzing. To me this was not as loud as others had complained. I noticed that when switching sources the buzzing would change volume and pitch. Since day one through today (day 5) the buzzing has significantly decreased and still no signs of peeling. I am now only able to hear the buzzing if I am watching tv w/ the HT system on mute. Lastly the color pops are defiantly noticeable. After calibrating the tv and using the most recently firmware it is evident. Especially this weekend when I watched the Bruins game on NBC HD through Fios. I do hope that this gets resolved with future update. Because it is clearly a flaw and noticeable.
As for PQ this tv is spot on. It blows away my Panny from 4 years ago and is the best plasma on the market. Overall I am very pleased that I do not have any peeling and very little buzzing and can live with the color popping based on the over all PQ being amazing.
post #2995 of 4123
I'm glad you don't have much issue with the buzzing. Mine is inherently loud, but I noticed (as I mentioned before that I don't notice it as much while gaming, but I do when watching movies) is that it actually is louder when I start up a movie. In other words, when the "24p" signal pops up on the black screen, I start to get a significant amount of buzz compared to the other "loud" buzz that I get, something that I wouldn't mind it sounding like with movies as much.

By the way, here's a "buzz test" for those who either don't hear it or hear it very little. Sit centered with your screen (not right in front of it, but just at your normal viewing distance). Now, cup your hands over your ears so that your palms block the back end of your ears, and let them curve outward to the TV. In other words, do kind of what you would do if you were asking someone: "What? I didn't hear you." Only do it with both hands and ears. If you still don't hear a buzz by this point, I'm led to believe your TV is either perfect (which would be awesome), or your ears simply can't perceive that frequency. I have a feeling that's how it is with a lot of people who can't hear it in this thread. Chances are your ears literally just can't detect that high of a pitch.

Let me clarify that the noise is one thing... it's a loud buzz, I know and I get it. That wouldn't be so much of an issue if the buzz wasn't so high pitched. It's pretty annoying when I can hear it clear as day in normal dialogue in a film.

Are people here with a Samsung 7000 series plasma using the 24p when watching BluRay?

Is there a pixel shift function for the 59in 7000 series plasma?

I like to use the 24P function. Tv calls it "film mode." I Have a Denon 1611UD which does it but the AVR is a 3808ci which does not. So kept it as pass though.

As for pixel shift this tv does indeed have it. I keep in on when playing video games or watching sports. But turn it off for movies.

I was set to buy the PN59D7000, but my wife talked me into buying the PN59D550 instead and saving some money (put the money saved towards a new tv cabinet). Got it on Wednesday and have been watching it all weekend. The TV is awesome but my only complaint is it has more glare than I would like. Is there that much difference between the screen glare on the 550 vs the 6500 or 7000. I know they have the extra AR coating. My main problem is I can see the lamp that we normally have on in the room (wall opposite the tv and off to the side). Also during the day, I have some reflection from 2 windows on the opposite wall from the tv. They do not get direct sunlight, but they still show in the reflection. Is it worth the $300 - $400+ it's going to cost to upgrade? I don't want to go through the trouble of changing them out if I'm still going to have the glare issue. Might have to step down to the 51 inch to stay in the same price range. Thanks for any info you can provide.
