I can see exactly where you are coming from, positive and negative posts should be welcome. Otherwise there will be no balance and misinformation will potentially spread.

There should be balance so potential owners and owners alike can get the full picture. But there are ways of saying things. I am very black and white so i can get a little abrupt at times but i try not to be rude. I also try to treat others as i wish to be treated. We are all in theory here for the same reason so falling out over trivial things (they are tvs at the end of the day) is a waste of energy.

Well, I see the problem as if you have xyz tv and I consistantly post negative stuff about xyz tv, while ignoring the positive (or maybe in spite of the positive) it would irritate you ? right ? I want to know the good and bad about tv's, so I can make MY OWN informed decision, but I admit I do get angry with all the negative posts that I feel come from people just looking to put down the tv. I usually try to listen (read) posts from those who either work on, have or may/will be getting the particular tv. otherwise , Why would a person want to post on a tv they do not have, do not want, or never worked on ? And , how would they get any informamtion anyway ? I hate the
" I HEARD/READ IT" club people who continuously spew misinformation like vomit from a baby's mouth.

Does, or will, the fact that Samsung and Sony will be price fixing, starting next month, play into your decision about buying a tv? I was seriously considering Samsung this year until I found out about UPP.

It really depends what the street prices end up being.

The 65" model last year, I could buy for $3500 when it first come out. If this year's model streets over $4000, that's a non-starter for me. If it really retails for $4700, please, who are they kidding?.... Others will make different decisions.

Well I just pulled the trigger on a 55" myself from Amazon, should get it in next week. Now off to research BD players a little more. Was going to go with the new Samsung E6500 to keep it in the family, but I might want to go Panasonic or someone else to get the Amazon VOD, as I'm an Amazon Prime member too.

Wondering what the chance is of that being added to the Sammy apps, and/or what the 'cost' is in mixing brands between BD and TV. I know I'll lose a little bit of direct communication sort of functionality, but since I plan on using a universal remote anyway (Harmony One...although they don't have the commands for the new boxes last I checked) not sure that matters much to me. Plus everything will be on HDMI passthru via an AVR anyway.

(Yes, I know, this isn't the forum for the BD questions. I just posted here because the screenshots convinced me to just go for the ES8000).
post #193 of 16126
I have the d8000 and 3 different bd players a bd-d5500 sammy, bdt-110 panny and lg bd-580 as well as a ps3. I find things alot easier to just have the sammy products together. I personally don't like the panny, but the lg 580 is the best one in my opinion. anyway try to keep them together, unless your going oppo then thats another story. The new samsung tv's do 2d-3d conversion really well so no need to duplicate it on the bd player, and they also have the cloud, disk to digital. At one point I am sure amazon app was on the sammy.

I know this is the es8000 thread but I also see some inquiring about other panels to consider. I wonder why no one has mentioned the WT from Panasonic? It seems that this panel may be a contender with competing black levels and since it has an IPS panel will have superior viewing angles. The motion interpolation if last years panels were any indicator will be very natural and inoffensive. Its web browsing interface should be very cool as well.

I know this wouldn't apply for those looking for larger but at 55 which seems to be the most popular in this thread thus far should be worth looking at.

It's new for Panasonic to even be in the mid 50s... So people haven't had a chance to know if the products are interesting (although they look it). Samsung has a proven track record -- as well as more sizes.

hey, anyone who has bought the samsung es8000 , what is the model number of the glasses ? I ask cause samsung is also replacing my glasses (4 pair no reciept) and I like the battery ones but dont really like the ssg-3050 type with no sides. I paid $64.00 per pair, the ssg-3050 are like $20. per pair, but better than nothing.


god bless
post #197 of 16126
i would assume that whats included in the box is what is posted at bestbuy.com.
it says they are 4 pairs of SSG4100, i agree, got to be better than the older ones i have with the straight arms instead of the newer curved arms.
here is a link to the glasses. read in certain places that these are not going to be released until 4/1/2012 hmmmm guess people are getting them in the boxes but cant actually purchase them retail yet.

Hi. First post, so please be gentle.

Does anyone know if the ES8000 will be coming out with a 40 inch screen? And which other models will/won't be?

I've read on the internet that it will be (sorry I can't post links, but it was within a news article at digital versus dot com).

I've also emailed Samsung Customer Services (UK) and they said they've "been told" the ES8000 will be available as a 40"er.

However, the product list of the new 2012 Samsung TV range on Amazon does NOT include 40 inch screens for most of these models, including the 8000.

Can anyone help?

Sadly I can't get a TV any bigger than 40 inches, due to lack of space, and obviously want to get the best TV I possibly can!

Thanks in advance.

There wasn't a D8000 40 inch model in the USA last year, and there won't be a 40 inch ES8000 either.
post #201 of 16126
There is a 40 inch D8000 here in the Netherlands.

Only Europe gets 40 inch I think. I guess bigger is better in America (I agree) :P

I certainly am, but 70" is my minimum. For me its either the 75ES8000, or whatever the next version of the Elite will be. I tried the first version of the Elite but the pulsing bug drove me crazy and had to return it.

At CES I was able to compare the gen1 Elite 70" with the Samsung 75", and in what I consider a bright to normal room I liked the Samsung picture better. I'm actually really surprised at how much better the Samsung looked to me. I wont make my final decision until I see them in a dark room together, but these early pictures are encouraging. I'll also spend more time looking at off-angle viewing than I did when shopping for the Elite.

As of right now I think I'm leaning towards the Samsung, but that may change if Sharp does come out with a 4k Elite.

Actually no, the difference in 2D-3D conversion on the 2011 D8000 and the 2011 BD-D6700 was night and day. Everyone I've ever talked to knows that the blu ray players did a much much better job converting 2D-3D. Moreover, the 2011 Samsung conversion on the BD players was among the best period, rivaling even 3D Bee converters in some people's opinions

So you're basically saying that the new 2012 Samsung Tv's have a much improved conversion process? Because it just wasn't that good last year, not compared to other products out there including their own bluray player line. I'd have to see where you're getting your information first, and secondly see it myself and at least compare it to D6700

Go to Amazon and read up on my review of the BD-E6500 (which I would not recommened over the higher end 2011 Samsung BD-players) and be careful not to spread misinformation

Thanks for the reply. I have actually never seen the es8000 other then what videos I have seen online, but have spent hours in tha magnolia room staring at the elite, sony hx929 and last years sammy d8000. I hope the es8000 picture does pull through and really pops and fixes the issues it had with previous generations. I would love to go with the 75" but man for 7$ grand....
post #208 of 16126
Samsung seems to have a history of saying a 75" TV will come out later in the year, only to find out, no so. Here's a link to CES 2011 where a samsung rep talks about the 75" D9500...

"Not available till the second half of this year, which it doesn't really have a release date, but it is coming out. Which is good news, it's not a concept and of course there's no price because they're thinking about it."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4i1EQ1Niaiw

At the CES 2012 Samsung again has displayed a 75", and says it will be available in the ES8000 series. Yet if you do a search for confirmation of this 75ES8000, you'll find sites that list what sizes Samsung will bring to market and either the 75" is not listed, or it is with TBA as the disclaimer.

I wish these companies would stand behind what they say, when they say at CES, will be out later this year.

So folks, what's your take on 2012 promise of the 75ES8000 actually coming to market?

I wont believe it until I see it in stores, but samsung isn't the only company to show up with vaporware at ces. Vizio had a 72'' full array 3d tv at ces that was suppose to sell for under 4k at ces 2010 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FdzeaFs464. 2 years later still not released, I was really hoping for this tv. They always have to 1up the competition on biggest tv even if they will never release the tv.

while a 75 inch LED ES8000 would be cool to own 7,299 $ is a ton of cash ,that can pay for some bills and a down payment on a car ,55 inch ES8000 is fine for me .and its does not even have to be the ES8000 it can be the ES7500 in 55 inch.good luck .hope u get your tv u want
