"The main advantage over the step-down UNF7500 series is a feature Samsung is calling "Micro Dimming Ultimate with Precision Black Local Dimming," as opposed to mere Micro Dimming Pro on the UNF7500. The difference, according to Samsung, is that the UNF8000 actually dims different areas of the backlight, while the dimming of the 7500 and lesser Samsung TVs (down to the UNF6400 series) is strictly video-processing-based. The company claims there are hundreds of different dimming zones on the UNF8000 -- down from "thousands" touted at CES, if you're keeping track."

And, my favorite CNET quote - - "As usual the best plasmas still have it beat."

Doesn't there have to be some "video processing" or software to dim the different areas of the backlight?

Well - - the glass "half full" view is that CNET isn't bashing the Samsung set and it "oozes coolness."

I guess I'll just have to settle for my "just OK" picture quality on my 65" ES8000 - - without Katzmier's suggested settings. smile.gif

I was very suprised by the positive vibe of the review. For the last few years it seemed as though they just didn't care about Samsung & LED's in particular. So they just dismissed them entirely and have always waited so long to review them because they're last on their short list. While some of that may still be true, the F8000 still got amazing grades in all the important areas and a glowing CNET review to my suprise

The one interesting takeway as far the ES8000 goes is that it still has better 3D than the F8000 because of crosstalk issues. I guess that and the increased lag time are just anomolies that the respective owners will have to deal with. But I for one am glad that I don't have to deal with any more lag than I have to, or increased crosstalk in 3D! I may not have local dimming with my ES but I do feel like with the Smart Kit & with the biased lighting kit (the one referenced in this thread recently) I've got the best of both worlds. And having paired up my set with a ~$1000 Benq 1080st short throw 3D projector & 100" screen I have to say my home theatre experience is complete for the time being

I really don't know how they can up the ante with the next Smart Kit release. I guess they can always just beef up the specs but I feel like this is about as good as it is going to get, which is fine for me

Anyone else have 7500 settings for a 55 inch they can share?
I have a 60" 7500 panel as well. I tried the settings that Garnnoch had and it did not look good on my set. I am now using a a mix of 10k's and cnets settings with some other minor tweaking. I think everything now looks really good. There definitley seems to be a difference between the es7500 and es8000 when it comes to calibrations because if I use one the es8000 settings completely it does not look good at all. I found mixing white balance and color spacing yields me better results. I don't know what a meter would tell but my eyes like what it see's. Great depth to the picture and colors look natural and not fake or overly bright. I was really trying to achieve a more plasma like picture and think these settings really do get you there.

Hi guys, im new here, i need some help

i just bought UN40F6400 and since the settings are similar to es8000, I use it 100% for gaming with x360,

the issue is, i play a lot of FIFA, and I use Movie Mode, i like the PQ, but i get some lag,

then I tried GAME MODE, but it gets real ugly in a fast scene (pass or goal kick), then I tried PC Mode, it was OK, the ghosts were gone, but the PQ sucks,

is there a way to reduce these "ghosts" in the fast scenes in game mode?

Thanks a lot!!

Thanks Eric,

Most people have stated you should leave the color value at it's default of 50, tint as well, and instead adjust color and white balance values.

Without a meter it's hard to calibrate color for sure.

I would say its pointless using other peoples white balance and custom colour set ups.

Yes without a meter you can't really tune the colors correctly so you have to kind of get the picture to where it looks good to you. Playing around with different people's settings I sure know what looks good and what doesn't to my eyes on my TV.

Playing with the color balance and lowering it allowed me to achieve a more plasma type look. It removes that brightness to colors and tones them down a lot. Raising back to 50 with any setting just does not look as good to me. Can I achieve this look through other settings. Probably, but not without a meter.

So you are saying to leave everything stock then if you don't have a meter? Stock settings look terrible to me so if I can take someone else's settings and then do a little tweaking and if it looks better in the end then stock why would I not use it? Why should I settle for the stock settings that are obviously the same on every TV when every TV is different anyway.
post #15577 of 16125
Using others' settings is just hunt and peck, but I'm not about to mess with a meter (my wife would kill me) and I'm not about to leave it stock either. I am happy using Garnoch's, but I tried a lot of others too.

If you use someone's settings with the same model/identical panel that can get you 80-95% of the way there despite what some may tell you. If one was to go through all the settings available throughout this thread they could easily find good a good match for their set. No use paying for a calibration when Samsung tweaks things as much they do with updates, and then you have the evo kit changing things as well. I'm sure you'll find something you like - for me that is 10K's settings hands down

I agree. If someone else's settings look better then what the TV ships with then why would you not use it anyway? Obviously what the TV ships with is not even close to being calibrated.

I also think there would be less of a variance with an LED then there would be with a plasma when using someone else's settings.

Have you tried these settings on your 7500 yet? I think on my 60es7500 it gives me that 3d look in a 2d picture that people claim from a good calibration. Especially on an animated film.

Would be curious to hear what others think. I know I am now really happy with the picture.

I haven't yet no, I'll give it go after the long weekend. I was actually thinking about investing in a meter but I'm scared I'd never watch the thing!

Cool, just curious to hear what another 7500 owner would think even though there are different size screens. I can't believe there are not many other 7500 owners around here. I guess everyone spent the extra money for the es8000.
post #15583 of 16125
I just bought the New Samsung PN51F8500 for the Office. The reason I purchased this for the Office was the price and Off Angle Viewing. I think it will be neat to do a Comparison between it and the 55es8000. I won't be able to do a side by side, but I will have some opinions and Ideas of the two.

What settings? I put 10K's Movie settings on mine last night and I really like them. I use Garnoch's for Standard. Where the hell is Garnoch lately? The new Smart Hub is pretty spiffy I must admit. I still haven't used any Apps or the browser thought. The remote is shaping up well.

Hey Luciano,

Have you tried searching this Thread for "Game Mode" or gaming or something else appropriate? I'm not a gamer but I remember some posts about it some time ago. Good luck!

PS If you want more replies change your pic to one like Halimali .biggrin.gif

Hey guys,

What do the settings on Voice Control Sensitivity do? I mean 'Echo level' adjusts Howling levels - WTF?
I use voice control occasionally but once in a while the dumb 'Smart TV' will go to Smart Hub or the Mirror setting - which was quite startling to have those pretty Hollywood types replaced by some ugly old fart, whom I didn't recognize at first!

Has anyone here experience the TV rebooting itself when initially turned on. This started happe ing to me all of a sudden and iv tried resetting the TV completely via the menu option but it hasn't stopped it from happening. It's also not happening every single time.

Thanks in advanced for any help!

Showroomcali will be calibrating a 60es7500 and posting his results later in the thread I linked below. He has offered to do calibrations for TV models as long as stores have them on display. Pretty cool of him to do this. Make sure to show some aprreciation after he posts these up!

post #15593 of 16125
First time seeing this.
My 60esun8000 has a graphic in the upper right corner that says updating.
There is no new firmware to be downloaded. What the heck is updating?
It's been saying updating for at least an hour now.

Same thing happened to me last night. Maybe a Smart Hub update.
post #15595 of 16125
It does appear to be a smart hub update.
Isn't there an option for me to choose not to download smart hub updates automatically?
Can't seem to fins any option for this.

So here is the calibration he did for a es7500 in standard mode. Seems very different then the settings you guys are getting for the es8000. I believe he might be doing an es8000 as well.

Well I congratulate him on trying, but I mostly just trust actual owners who have more experience calibrating - rather than someone who admits they lack experience, doesn't own the set, and has to calibrate under horrible lighting condition on a showfloor under a possibly limited amount of time. Maybe it's just me....
post #15598 of 16125
Yeah I tried the settings he posted... color is pretty off... overly green and not natural at all....

Hi,

I remembered seeing these screen issue before. It happened to me tonight:



Regardess of my source (AVR and TV box), the screen will freeze to the above screen after a 20 seconds. It will freeze for 10-20 seconds. During this moment, it won't respond to the remote. This happened before but it went away with power off / on. Tonight it won't go away.

Any insights?

Does anyone have links to where the Evolution Kit can be purchased now for under $200?
