Hey - who wants to go around life with a small bezel?
post #13443 of 16125
Mine too... (65" bezel that is) Are you saying that the ES8000's have a different bezel size for the 60" vs the 65" ?

Also I am interested in buying a 3D Blue Ray.
Is there a real noticable difference between the Sony 790 and the Sony 590?
As I have the 65ES8000 I dont need the wifi stuff.
The only thing I like is the 2 HDMI outs, as I would like to have one input to my Home Theater Pre-Pro, for when I want to listed to the movie in surround, and another output directly into the TV for when the kids want to watch a move.

Me neither but the 55" costs us the equvalent of $3750 so I'm saying I wish UK prices were as cheap as the US prices

I thought the same thing until I watched the same Youtube video streamed from my Sony BPD-S590 as the ES8000 "smart" Hub. The Sony zoomed while the Samsung lagged. Just sayin'...the 3D blu ray player may be your actual smartie.
post #13447 of 16125
Is the general Concensus here that the Sony BPD-S590 is a nice match to intergrate with the 8000 series TV. Any other nice models that interface and play well with the Sammy.
I know Samsung Players are not highly regarded here.
Looking for something small and intergrates well with sammy remote and nice smooth interaction between the two.

My small bezel LOL on my 60" is about 5/16" including black ribbon and chrome. I measured the 65" bezel at BB recently and it is about one inch and noticeably wider than the 60, not that it's not amazingly slim. That's a narrow bezel for a 65" panel.

This is a great bluray player. I have this one but I don't have 8000 yet. I'd have to think all 3D bluray players are equal, no?

I picked Panasonic over Sony. Costco has both models when I bought it. I compared them side by side. The Panasonic is better in my opinion. Being rooted in Audiophile, having a detached power cord "means" something (old habit dies hard). Sony doesn't. Panasonic does.

hows the input lag on the 65 inch es8000? I'm very close to purchasing it and input lag is a deal breaker for me

So you decided to join the panel lottery? Did you buy from Amazon? I'm thinking to participate in the panel / vertical banding lottery too.

i dont have it yet, but i havent read much about the input lag on the tv, does anyone who has this TV experience this? I dont plan on playing FPS or anything on this TV, if i do play on it it would probably be a sports game. 65 inch is too big to play competively on a a tv in my opinon.
post #13458 of 16125
I don't really play competitively, its just that input lag seriously frustrates me on fps games and fighters
post #13459 of 16125
added my standard settings to the spreadsheet. As much as I try to like Movie mode, cant seem to get there. Will need to play with movie mode more.

Calibrated using an i1D3 and calman software, with AVS709 playing through a PS3.

Here is what puzzles me, I tried Dynasty Warriors and Tekken 6 w/ PS3 on 7100 - I'm very happy. Now ES8000 is a higher end model. Why would a higher end model have issue? The motivation for me to upgrade was b/c I was impressed w/ 7100... wink.gif

Finally (!) updated my May 2012 60" es8000 from FW 1013 to 1046.2. Not connected to inet so uploaded via thumb drive/USB. Quick history: I did have before a great pic with minimal flash lighting and very slight brightness on edges and zero perceivable clouding. Used WoW calibrated Standard settings. Tolerated the auto dimming, not really bothered by it much. Didn't like the look of Movie no matter whose calibrations I tried. Never felt the need to update as i fully enjoyed the set. But enough feedback came in to validate (strongly) the 1046.2 so i took the plunge.

Ok, to the present: updated to 1046.2 last night, admittedly with a picker factor of "11" that it would not look as good as I've enjoyed to date. Happily (as many of you attest) it hasn't negatively affected anything. It seems to have drastically reduced my flashlighting and edge bleed to nothing. Also noticed improvement to auto dimming. Can't quite describe it other than its seems less drastic in standard mode. Noticeably less.

And as someone (Blade??) mentioned, I too have noticed a solid improvement in the set's native audio. Seems more robust (even though I primarily alternate between a Soundbar and a 5.1 set up).

So, pleasantly surprised. And glad the set didn't get screwed.

Fleetski, you know I hear ya loud and clear. Your comments mirror exactly my experience with my May built hs01 60" bought in June.

Like you I was very pleased at 1013 for a very long time. Now with 1046.2 it resolved the faint edge lite bleed, almost completely resolved flash lights on movie, gone in standard, better audio, blacker blacks, better detail and color. the autodimming which never bothered me was also now implemented in smoother fashion.

I never had clouding until I tested a few calibrated movie mode settings.

I am in my own movie mode now tweaked slightly from the defaults and I think my tv is showing the best picture I have ever seen period...my standard mode is super sweet as well if I need to jump. Enjoy.

Great finally some ppl asking on input lag, well, from what i know with all the gaming i do it comes down to consoles being the worst for input lag.
I don't see any visible input lag while playing on PC, i do how ever get some when playing "project gotham racing" on xbox, forza rocks.
On xbox playing gears & halo i have had no issues, same goes with street fighter,& soul calibur.
PS3 so far i have no issues either but i don't have many games for it, gran turismo looks/plays fantastic.
I am no longer a competitive gamer & if you consider urself "competitive" then maybe you should get a commercial LED without all the processing & fancy pants features consumer tv's come with.comercial tv's have less input lag & are cheaper priced but don't expect it to have the same kind of PQ.
Personally i am very happy with this tv for gaming & wish i could get 2 more for surround gaming. smile.gif

Yeah, I did notice it. I was just curious why Samsung's website shows it without and specifically say says an edgeless picture.


Ultra-Slim Bezel

It’s super slim, yet makes your screen look even bigger. With a bezel that’s just 0.2”/0.5” thin, you watch an almost edgeless picture, creating a more immersive experience. Hang your TV like a work of art on your wall, or use your TV’s distinctive designed stands for a stunning, free-standing look.

I have said in this thread from day one that my 60" 8000 looks like a floating piece of electronic art, even when off, as it is mounted on a stand and table. I really love the clean install and floating effect even after I have the sounbar now mounted and floating below the screen...just awesome...Love this thing more now than when I first got it in June.

Most 65ES8000 members here have vertical banding issue, some minor some severe. Some has gone through several different 65ES8000 and go for other brand. It feels like a panel lottery.

Try watching Top Gun 3D on a 65ES8000, it's a banding nightmare for 65+ tvs. Even my HX950 reveals some banding with this one.

So is it this model UN65ES8000FXZA or just some movies that create it?

All 65+ LEDs will exhibit vertical banding to some degree. The 65ES8000 tends to have more severe banding on average than other 65+ sets. I only mentioned Top Gun 3D since if seems to be a movie that gives all 65+ tvs trouble due to the flying sequences with bright sky's combined with fast pans, two scenarios which by themselves expose banding, combine the two and ouch!
