I believe this is actually depth-of-field that is being noticed. If you pay attention to any 3D film, or even tv show, often times the person or subject in front of the camera is sharp and in focus, and the background is intentionally blurred, or out-of-focus. This is done on purpose to bring your attention to the subject in focus. It's done very frequently in photography also. What I think is happening is when this happens in 3D, the out-of-focus background is even more noticeably out-of-focus because it is in 3D, so the sharp subject in the foreground is very noticeable, and the blurred background waaay in the distance looks even more out-of-focus. This is intentional, and how it was filmed. Remember that different cameras and different techniques can achieve different levels of focus - you can have everything in the frame razor sharp, or you can intentionally blur the background for artistic, creative, or dramatic purpose.

Just thought I'd throw that out there, since I notice this myself at times. The 3D definitely makes the blurred backgrounds stand out even more.

But how does that explain out of focus backgrounds and misplaced objects on the 60 that are in focus and correctly placed on both the 65es8000 and 65vt50?

What you see Cmay is strange, thats for sure. To be honest, I cant tell a difference in 3D from my calibrated VT50, to my Calibrated ES8000. It all looks the same to me.

Maybe even more than a couple of updates because he said something about being on 2000.1 or something like that. Hopefully someone from the UK can chime in here about that

Back to having more HDMI too.

Where does it state you won't need EVO Kit to get the new smart hub?

Funny I think just the opposite. I think in 3D stuff in the back should be better in focus than 2D. With your eyes out a window you can focus on the near as well as the far and they both look sharp not blurry (assuming you have good vision or glasses). That's what makes real life look 3D. I think that's what they strive for in 3D movies.

it doesn't but there have been rumors since someone at Samsung supposedly said it at CES. Just hearsay right now but based on the PDF I was referring to, it shows dual core TVs with the new hub and quad core TVs with advanced motion and voice control. So the rumor may be true that dual core 2012 TVs could see the new hub without the quad core Evo Kit, but not get the advanced control.

Is it possible that the quad-core upgrade could improve the performance of Auto Motion Plus? Currently I get intermittent stuttering on most of the AMP modes - only clear seems to actually be stutter free. I know others have experienced something similar. And I'm assuming it's the processor that is powering the generation of the new frames created by AMP. I wonder if by having more processing power it may be that AMP could run smoother without hiccups? That is if it's hiccuping is due to reasons other than the source.

I also wonder if it's possible that there could be a reduction in lag, since it might be possible for the quad-core processor to to handle the image processing faster or more efficiently, resulting in shorter lag?

Eagle, welcome back, man. Better blacks or less clouding I don't expect from the kit, but I think seeing benefits like you mention are a definite possibility. It simply makes sense. Based on the PDF I referred to, we shouldn't need the kit for the new hub, but faster CPUs and GPUs should still help other things other than simple giving us better voice and motion control. The new kit make real time 3D graphics possible too. Being Samsung had a beta program for games through the ES, I assume this will come into play for them. Games and motion & voice control aren't enough for me to buy it though.
post #10329 of 16126
Samsung really should be giving us the new smart hub design for free, , then give us the option to buy the kit if we want a quad core for it to run faster and the other extra features it has and I hope that they realize this and just put out the FW for it

This is why I had mentioned that I don't think the technique carries over well to 3D. As for cmay asking why is was in focus on the 65", I'm not sure it was to tell the truth, although it may have been handled better. I wish I had that movie. Blurred backgrounds in 3D mess with my head, although in 2D and pictures, I love depth of field.

Based on the rumor and now the pdf you posted, I really think we will get it. The graphics just won't run as smoothly as with the evo kit.

They don't but that's exactly my point - I think they should. The problem is they have to make it look the way they want in 2D first. That's most important. It's like surround mixes for TV. You'd be surprised how few 5.1 mixes are ever listened to before going out the door because how they translate in stereo is more important.

Great to see some new information there. Garnoch as far as the chart goes, I don't think that it's indicating that the flagship dimming feature is called Ultimate "Plus". I think it's more of just saying Ultimate dimming with/plus/and Precision Black

As far as Precision Black goes, here's a couple interesting statements I read recently

From CNET:
The company claims the microdimming system eliminates blooming effects and its Precision Black algorithm can control black levels in discrete zones without affecting light areas of the picture.
The TV incorporates a quad-core processor, which should assist with the speed of the Smart TV interface as well as provide muscle for picture-processing features such as Motion Judder Cancellation Pro, Digital Noise Reduction, and Web Picture Quality Enhancer


Samsung.com:
With Samsung’s Precision Black Pro technology, the set delivers deep, real blacks as well as pure vivacious whites. It combines an extremely high contrast ratio and Ultimate Dimming control functionality – which utilizes hundreds blocks of LEDs and precise BLU control – to deliver sharp resolutions previously unseen on large format displays

I'm not comparing the 65es8000 to the 65vt50, it's the difference between the 60es8000 and the other two.

It makes sense though. Someone else said here they doubt Samsung would want to support both. I don't think they will need to. If that's true though, that means BD players and such will be updated too.

AHHHHHHHHHHH great point! That's why they hadn't referred to it as + so far. They just meant MD Ultimate AND Precision Black.

As for the CNET article, it made no sense because it made it sound like MD was new. This.....
"The company claims the microdimming system eliminates blooming effects and its Precision Black algorithm can control black levels in discrete zones without affecting light areas of the picture."
...... is the same thing as was said about the 2012 models haha.

I've also maintained from the start that the tvs I tested were possibly damaged since I transported them in the back of an SUV laying flat face up and that could also be why the 3d was so bad.

Yeah you did, but I have a feeling you may be right that the 60" is just handling that information differently. I don't think a depth of field shot will be in focus so to speak on the 65" or VT, but it may at least look better. I just love to see a 3D movie with no blurring, so my eyes can focus on whatever I want.

True, perhaps a better way to describe is that the backgrounds on the 65 are less noticeable because the 60 handles it differently which results in some background crosstalk and 3d errors (misplaced items) that make the blurry backgrounds stand out more.... And it was 3d animated films that seemed to suffer the most. I did not notice it on live action 3d and never got to test avengers and look at the scenes in question from earlier in the thread.

Hey guys.

Thanks a bunch for the encouragement to return my last two UN65ES8000s based on having a stuck pixel on #1 and dead pixels on #2.

#3 arrived today. No stuck and no dead pixels.

When I tested on a gray screen I do see what I believe is some significant vertical banding (see picture).

I thought I remembered that some users reported this issue resolving itself over time or with settings. Is this correct?

Does this look like a significant issue? I don't see it when watching normal programming.

Thanks for any advice / help.

I would say take a look at the test picture in the menu and check for any banding there. If you can't see it under normal viewing, it may be good. Watch some PGA this weekend as well. That is the truest test to spot it. Doesn't look too bad to me from the picture. Settings will definitely help. I'm watching PGA golf on mine now and it looks great. Good luck with it!

If you don't see it when watching normal programming, then you might be OK. Just make sure you watch lots of different stuff within the return period so you can make a final decision. The six vertical bans you have especially the two on the left middle of the screen will most likely be noticeable on panning shots. If you watch a ton of sports, I'd say you are going to have a problem. If you watch mostly movies and/or shows, you probably won't be bothered by it too much if it is not bothering you so far.
post #10345 of 16126
So I take it this is not something that goes away with use or settings?

What is the cause? Are all sets in this model family plagued with this issue to one degree or another?
post #10346 of 16126
Mine had similar banding. Viewable in all normal content regardless of settings. And while some report that clouding goes away after a while, banding doesn't improve over time, it's there to stay. Watch normal content and see if you notice it.

This year its mostly just the 65" that have the banding issue. You can also check out Amazon.com and see some new reviews there of others that are having the same issues as you. I'm shocked that this model has 40 1 star reviews and only 70 5 stars. I think most of the 1 stars are from people buying this 65". I have the 60" and its like a different TV with no banding whatsoever. I also have the 65" that has banding which you can see in my pics on here and honestly, I wish I never kept it, Which is why I'm hoping the new F series is free of bamding so I can replace my 65" with the new one.

I know there are alot of amazing picture settings floating around this post.... They all look great... But after playing around with "Dynamic"!! ,, who would have thought the picture would look so good. Even my friends agree these settings look absolutely great.. I have a 60"... Try them out... The good thing with dynamic mode is you don't have to change your heavily tweaked out movie or standard settings. smile.gif

*My Comcast HD box picture settings;

Dynamic Picture Mode:

Backlight: 6
Contrast: 100
Brightness: 33
Sharpness: 46
Color: 60
Tint: G45/R55
Color Tone; Standard
Digital Noise Filter; Auto
MPEG Noise Filter; Off
Auto Motion Plus; Off
LED Motion Plus; Off

This makes me hopeful that perhaps the Evo kit's quad-core processor could indeed give an improvement in picture processing, like improving the smoothness of AMP without stuttering. I wonder though if since these 2012 sets weren't designed with quad-core in mind, would it be able to properly take advantage of the quad-core chip for image processing, or would the quad-core only get utilized by the smarthub or motion control?
