I think some are getting the newer 1400GB model 3D glasses which are the actual 2012 models. The 2012 model glasses appear to be a bit smaller and a tad less weight but one person noted that the 3050GB's fit him better and had better eye coverage...

Thank you. Samsung said they are looking to replace my buzzing d550 with a 2012 model and I had already purchased the glasses.

Cheez this thread is sloooooow lol, Surely some of you guys are buying the E6500 series over the 8000 LOL
post #63 of 426
The Panasonic threads are full of post, why the Samsung treads are so empty? I want a comparison E6500 to ST50. I want to decide which to buy.
post #64 of 426
Samsung is replacing my screen due to 2 dead pixels, next to each other. Took a while and I only found out due to online service chat with Samsung as I only got the answering machine with the local service center.

Does anyone have any calibration settings?

Thanks.

Panel replaced, looks great and a bit less buzz.
post #66 of 426
I've had my 51" E6500 for almost a month now, and the brightness, or "hockey" pops are very annoying. Is this a common issue with plasmas in general, or should I think about returning the TV?
post #67 of 426
pdps & hockey are a known issue, use your pdp for everything else. get yourself a led to watch the NHL.
post #68 of 426
up...anyone have any calibration settings? Any reason why settings for the E7000 and E8000 would not work (once they materialize)?

Thanks.

Anymore 6500 owners yet ?

I'm going to apply the CNet E8000 calibration settings to my 51" E6500, then pop in my WOW disc and make any adjustments if needed. I'll try and post these settings once I'm done...but for what it's worth, I'm by no stretch an expert in this arena...

On a side note..does anybody have any more information regarding the firmware 1009.3 upgrade? What exactly does it fix/improve?

Thanks!

Has anyone noticed that in movie scenes where images move across the screen or the camera pans, objects are no where near smooth? I was watching Cars lastnight and in scenes where they panned across the grandstands the seats seem to jump across the screen in very small increments rather than "flow" smoothly. I've also noticed, i forget the movie, but A semi was driving across the screen and it was so choppy that I couldnt even read the names on the truck. I've tried every possible setting change between the Directv box and the tv without any improvement. Even tried swapping out the hdmi cable from one source to another.

Cheers
post #72 of 426
I haven't seen that problem at all on my E6500, it's incredibly smooth. The only times it gets choppy is when there's a problem with the feed through my cable, but it's obvious that's the problem as it gets all pixilated as well.
post #73 of 426
When I watch, say, a regular tv show it looks great. But when I watch a movie I notice it quite a bit, especially cartoon movies with the kids. I have a 98-99 percent signal on the Directv feed so I doubt thats the problem. I have auto 1 engaged with the Directv box set to Native and screen size set at screen fit. I also deselected all deinterlacing processing thru Directv so I would only feed a Progressive signal but it doesnt help. I may give Abt a call and see if I cant go to their store and see if the display model will reproduct what im seeing.

Cheers

I would only go with the E7000 if you plan on using the internet and other apps a lot. The dual core processor that comes with the E7000 will improve the performance of the apps. It also comes with slightly better speakers. I have an HTPC and AVR with external speakers so I went with the E6500 instead.

I thought I would throw my thoughts out on the 6500. I am new to plasma but have been following forum for couple months now. I am no pro and am not a lover/hater of any brand. I bought the Panasonic P60ST50 but am having a hard time with it so bought the Samsung 6500

I have had the Samsung PN60E6500 for a week now. Did 4 days of panel prep and have just started watching it.

1. I have no buzzing (or it's low enough I can't hear it). I have been listening for it as I have read about Samsung and the issues with buzzing. Thats good news.

2. I am really enjoying most of the PQ compared to the P60ST50 sitting right next to it. I can't get comfortable with the darkness/grayness of the Panasonic. I am continually trying to tweak settings that work for me. I do notice that the dark detail is slightly better on the ST50 but Sammy seems to have a little more color and brightness that my untrained eye enjoys (not blinding LCD brightness). This goes against 99% of the reviews for the ST50 - frustrating

3. Samsung looks sleek. Love the edge and way the screen melts into it.

4. Reflection is pretty nice on the 6500, better than the 550 I had for a short period of time in the same room. I have sliding glass doors in the back of my den with blinds closed and the reflection is there until you turn TV on picture looks great. The ST appears to have a better anti-reflection system but when watching it, the Sammy doesn't have an issue.

5. My only issue (hopefully stays this way) with the 6500 is that Netflix will not play... I goto into Smarthub, launch it and it appears to start then get a generic message saying can not access Netflix. Other apps work (Hulu, YouTube etc) and I have used both wireless and wired. Samsung says call netflix, netflix says call Samsung. Arrggh. Netflix says if i am seeing the message, I am connecting to them, it's a problem on the TV and the app configuration. Netflix is big for my house so this will cause me to exchange. It streams from other devices onto tv (xbox, BR) but I would refer to use just 1 device. Anyone encounter issues with Samsung and netflix like this? ******UPDATED**** 05/09/12 - Netflix works - I reset my router (ASUS RT-N66U), changed my wireless password and name, then reconnected the TV to wireless and Netflix worked.

Just a few observations.

Very interesting that you find the E6500 more brighter than ST50. Do you have any image retention? So reflections are not problem? I have D555 and the reflections are the main issue for me to change it. Also dont like black leves and need bigger :P Did you test 3D on those, which one had brighter 3D picture?

I have not encountered any image retention on either sets. I am a little paranoid about it so I haven't left anything on very long, say a paused show or anything like that but I have played xbox MW3 for a couple hours and no issue at all. After the panel prep, I watch a movie that wasn't full screen and no problem. As for reflection, without a doubt there is more in the 6500 compared to the ST50 but doesn't seem to be an issue when watching various scenes. The ST50 has louver filter/panel which, to me, seem better. Sorry haven't compared 3-d but will this weekend.

Ok Does none of the have dse(dirty screen effect)? My 51D555 has pretty bad and its very obvious when watching hockey. I want my next screen to me as uniform as possible.

Can any owners verify if this TV has the Smart Evolution expansion slot?

Very Nice , There does not seem to be many owners of the E6500 posting on this thread, There are a few in the 7/8000.

Would like to see more general feedback on the 6500 .
post #86 of 426
I am not sure why we have a 6500 thread - should be merged into the 7/8k threads since the panel/pq are common.

I noticed this on the E6500, E7000, and E8000 when I went to my local store (Paul's TV) on Friday. The movie playing was Up and you can definitely make out a choppiness as the house flies through the sky. The rep there told me it was because Samsung doesn't have as high quality video processor as Panasonic and tried to push me towards the Panasonics. Was he talking out of his ass or is this true? Would turning on the Cinema Smooth, or whatever it's called, option have solved this?
post #88 of 426
I just ordered my PN51E6500. Anybody know for sure if this is compliant with their whole "Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative?" I can't find anything saying it is or isn't...so I assume it isn't.
post #89 of 426
Hope someone could help me out here as there isn't alot of info on the E6500; does it have a built in microphone? I'm not crazy about a TV with integrated WiFi AND microphone

and just making sure, it doesn't include a camera either, correct?
