I picked up my 55ut50 (built april 2012) today, the guy at best buy said I should not lay it down, but I had no choice, I drove and stopped to eat with it laying down about 31/2 hours, I put it in its proper vertical way when I arrived home, took it out of the box. plugged it in 1/2 hour after arrival.
I set the 3D to auto 2, as I found somewhere in this thread, The tv found my seagate upnp server, and everything 3d that I tested so far, from my mvk files, it played in 3d, with the exception on 1 so far, but all I did was turn the 3d glasses off then on and it switched to 3d! So everything plays so far in 3D, so far.
like I said eirler I have a 46nx810 that retailed for over 2000 and I can tell you all 3d on lcd sucks!!!!!! (at least compared to the 3D on panasonic plasmas) There should be some type of standard or test that these have to pass but LCD tvs SUCK for 3D and should not be available, I personally think that they can be good and manufactures make them suck (cause I can adjust for no crosstalk in the back ground or foreground but not both on the LCD at the same time), but whatever. Now I know why some say they don't care about the 3D, its most likely cause the LCD tv they have SUCKS at 3D.
I can't wait to put it where it belongs, but so far I have no banding, no dead areas (clouding or ??), and perfect uniform everywhere on the screen, I do get a little buzzing when my white slide is on but it is so little I have to be a foot near it to hear it.
So far I see no dithering, tho I need to look it up, I sat 4-5 feet for 3D and it was perfect, no PERFECT!!!!
So far I love this TV, the 3D made me sooooo excited, it automatically switches to 3D,WOW and so far works perfect in doing that.
I have it in game mode so far with brightness and contrast max for the slides.
How do we check and upgrade firmware on these tv's? Does it do it automatically thru the internet?
