Thanks

Grainy? Hmm! That's a new one I heard, maybe try lowering your contrast? And maybe the Digital noise setting will help? Also, try setting the AMP to "Clear"

Its set to auto by default, but for cable TV,not blu ray, try high, low and medium and see what you think is acceptable. This also may have to do with your cable box or cable company because I don't hear of this issue with these TVs. Your the first I've heard since I've been on this thread. Also, try lowering your contrast to 75-80 and HDMI black level try setting it to low if its on normal.

Here's a great guide to some things pertaining to this model. Just click on where it says "Details"

These panels are real finicky but when I justed properly they look fantastic what all did the tech do? Was it pony show? Are you happy now? how are your blacks?
post #11557 of 16125

LOL Pony show means just messing around taking his time but not doing really anything. Did he explain why he loosened the chassie.Or did he keep to himself?

Over tightened screws causes excess flashlighting. Loosening them often reduces the effect.

That's good to hear so far... but you'll need to test something with a really dark scene or intro/end credits like the intro to Resident Evil Retribution 3D. The end credits to Harry Potter Deathly Hallows 2 3D is another that tends to give LED panels fits. If either of these or my previous samples pass when watching in a dark room, then you've got a great panel. smile.gif

I recently purchased a 55" Sony HX850, after reading many good reviews. Unfortunately I haven't had a good experience with the TV. I've tried two models so far both with bad flash lighting in all 4 corners and more annoyingly really bad DSE/banding. It makes for a very bad sport watching experience. Following this thread it seems like a lot of you are rating the es8000 very highly after recent updates. Would any of you recommend it for sports watching (in particular ice hockey) and for having good panel uniformity? Thanks!

That's a loaded question you are asking as typically Samsung and uniformity are generally not synonymous as quality control is somewhat lacking. All kidding aside, the recent update does appear to have improved black levels according to a few of the posters... but don't expect Samsungs to be flashlight free. With any edge lit set, a combination of viewing conditions and source material can cause this issue. We're you watching in complete darkness? Was the source material dark to begin with? Hockey generally is not an LED tvs friend to begin with due to various uniformity, banding, DSE issues that typically show up to varying degrees on any brand, make or model.

Yes true but we are close to having a hell of a panel.For the money it is a hell of a panel and we have Evo kits in the works so what can we expect in the future. Let pop some popcorn and sit back and see whats next. biggrin.gif

Those photos of lord of the rings really look impressive. Night and day compared to what I'm experiencing with my Sony. Has anybody found it good for sports? Or does it have as much banding/dse as other LEDs?

If you were to ask this question last month, I honestly wouldn't even reply. I'd let everyone else post their opinions, but as I said before, as crazy as this sounds, their latest FW has made all three of my ES8000 look amazing now. Except for the banding on my 65" which does look better now, but I still see it on certain material and I would NOT recommend buying the 65" unless, you want to go through what Cmay went through, with return after return and still have a chance of not being 100% satisfied. This is why I'm waiting for the F8000 now since I need either another 65" or even this supposedly 75" that they say every year will be coming out as a 8000 model, but never seems to happen.

We all have to remember here that FW updates can do some amazing stuff. Just look at the Sony playstation. They were able to add 3D, a totally new technology at the time to their aging old Playstation with just a FW update. That's pretty impressive seeing that no one had to go out and buy a whole new console just to have 3D

Anyone interested in the new 2013 series can check this out. Supposedly in the UK, they have changed the bezel to the bezel the new plasma was getting, and they are now calling it the F8500 in the UK. I'm going to try and get in touch with my contact at their Corporate to see if this is just a UK thing or not. I'm kinda hoping its not, because I'm digging this style from the pics. Very sleek and different looking.

Well this is what has pushed me in this direction. I was looking at a 55" so trying to get a gauge on whether the set is now good in terms of banding.

Out of those, my Favorite is the Benz.. People either love em, or hate them. And usually the ones that hate them, are the ones that love BMWs. My all time favorite car is an "italian" car. The Maserati sedan.. I have tons of pics if you want to see, just PM me. You must have a really cool wife too! Garnoch has one of those as well smile.gif
Garnoch has one of those as well.
OK, you have to explain one of those to me, because English is not my first language. Do you refer to Garnoch having:
- a cool wife as well? (I did not know you can refer to a wife as "those")
- A Maserati? Or a German vroom-vroom?

The TV
Surround speakers on speaker stands
Surround back speakers on the back wall on each side of the window
My favorite guitar ever (Martin next to the fireplace)
Ummmmmmmm... yeah, nevermind the camera there

My favorite thing about my set up is that all my equipment is in the room behind the wall the TV is on. Everyone always asks me where all my stuff is. I love the clean look!

hello Jestered
That looks like some nice flat front speakers you have. I am looking for a 5.1 setup like that now. What model front speakers do you have?

Great article.. This is why I highly recommend buying the extended warranty on Costco.com for only $99 through Sqaure trade.

Here's an article that explains how even though Sony sold their LCD division back to Samsung, they are still using Samsung's panels in some of their LEDs.

post #11573 of 16125
Turboman, I meant to get back to you on the speakers you asked about the other day. Sorry man, I've been backed up with stuff. I heard great things about Definitive Technology's "Flat" on wall speakers. I will find you a link and post it. My speakers are "In wall" so I don't think that's what your looking for as those need more work then just on wall speakers

Turboman,
these are great on walls. The Mythos line I hear great things about. You can look on Amazon for reviews. I'm curious to know what jestered has as well. And that camera he has by his massive sectional? Hmm! Looks like Rico's setup, except Rico has the camera for his XXXX webcam website..smile.gif he's trying really hard to make that money for his new Home theater setup..lol! jk

I know man.. I was going to buy the F8500 just to have this design, but now they are saying in the UK that the new F LED will have this design. I'm just hoping the same goes for us here in the US

HAHA! Great advice!
post #11580 of 16125
This is a pic i took of my 65" of the banding issue before the update.



After the update. I still notice the one on the left, but to me it looks better.



What do you guys think. Does it look better to you? It always helps having other eyes look.

Someone on here wanted to see Hockey. I think Hockey looks amazing on this set



Im adding two more pics. You can click on my Avatar to check them out if your interested. Just give me some time to do this..
