Yeah, I got it when I bought the TV at the same time.

Think also that the 7150 (from sams and costco) comes with the keyboard and extra 3d glasses. Mine did (from costco).

I've noticed the last couple nights that my TV is saying "updating" in the right top corner. Anyone else’s doing this? It was on for maybe 4 hrs. both nights and it’s not gone away. I wouldn’t think it would take that long. I also have the 1025 firmware?

Went ahead and ordered from amazon the 7100. The 7150 on samsclub.com was sold out right before I was trying to order. Plus they were gonna charge me 1848 and then have to refund my card the 400 I'm supposed to save. Too much trouble. I've heard good things about amazon especially on hassle free returns if your not satisfied.

I got this from monoprice: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082807&p_id=7847&seq=1&format=2
TV is really snugly with the wall.

I do have a question: In the A series, our AMP settings were Off, Low, Medium, and High. I know you guys can do custom blur/judder, but what exactly is Clear? Is it our Off?

Clear would be between Off and Low. Its like Custom with 0 Judder (keeps judder) and 10 Blur (keeps smoothing).

It eliminates the Soap Opera Effect, yet keeps the extra frames.

I only use Clear for Sports. AMP Off still looks best.

Any one know if 2011 3D glasses SSG-3100gb work with this year's ES series?

The only difference from 7100 from the store as opposed to the 7150 is the extra keyboard if I am not mistaken. Mine is the 7100 from hhgregg and it came with 4 3D glasses.
post #1601 of 2849
Thanks, I am happy this the picture now.
I do have another question, how can I adjust the settings for primetime tv shows to get rid of the "soap ophera" effect but still have a good picture?

Thanks.

If you register your product on Samsung.com you get an extra 6 months of warranty correct?

Extra 3 months. And also, if you paid with a American Express card you get another year.

Anyone know if bestbuy will pricematch with costco? The 7150 with the keyboard is selling for $1750 where as bestbuy is selling the 7100 for $1799. The keyboard at bb is $100. I just ordered by 60 inch 7100 just 3 days ago.

No, it has to be the same model number.

I'll try, I don't mind it updating as long as it doesn't take hours.

Yeah I noticed it last night, but it only lasted for a few minutes, I'm thinking because I have most everything connected to cat 5 cable and 20 mbps doesn't hurt either:)

Danediz,

You bought your 7100 on amazon today? I have been monitoring it for 2 days but Amazon doesn't have any to sell directly and it's all those other online stores trying to sell thhrough Amazon. It showed up on Amazon 2 nights ago for $1797 no tax but I missed it.

Now I see BB and Sears all sell for $1797 + tax for about $1900. It looks they all have similar sales going on before Super Bowl. Is this just about as good deal as we will see? Will the price generally go up or down after Super Bowl? I also wonder if it will be sold out in many places by then?

That's cuz I got the 55. The 60 is sold out via amazon unfortunately.
post #1610 of 2849
Ok, that's what I saw too. 60" was there 2 nights ago and gone the next day I checked. Do you if those deals we see now before super bowl are as good as they will get?

As good as they will get until next November. The 7100 wasn't even this cheap on Black Friday. I'm guessing they will keep the deal until they run out of stock. Picking up that 60" from best buy would be smart before they are gone!

It does seem like a great deal. I'm just kicking myself not purchasing one for &1797 on Amazon with no tax that night. I guess $1900 is a pretty good deal too. Did you not know BB, Sears are all selling for that price? Could got one yourself.. Thanks for the info.
post #1613 of 2849
Thanks AndyBoy for the link to your mount. Did you have to use the spacers that came with the TV? Guessing not given the proximity to the wall, but I read elsewhere in the thread that you needed to if you didn't buy a Samsung mount.
post #1614 of 2849
Picked up the 60 es7100 at best buy today. I am so glad that I exchanged my es6100 for it. The picture is flat out better right out the box than the es6100. Even the wife noticed it and she believes they all look the same.

I thought about it but 55 is big enough for me at the moment. Plus once you go up in size you can never go back down haha. If amazon had the 60 still i would have got it. But the money i saved im gonna buy a nicer stand.
post #1616 of 2849
I have mentioned this before on this site that the dealers can not sell the Samsung TV at a certain price without the permission of Samsung.

Samsung and Sony control the retail prices of their sets. Almost sounds like price fixing???

I have been told this by several retailers.

So when you see it it a best buy, sears will be the same price except they usually shave a couple of cents of the price making it 97 cents on the end as opposited to 99 cents.

I have checked many sites including Amazon and others and the price of the 7100 is withing two cents of one an other. I had a price match situation where I bought the 7100 for $1599 at black Friday and now Best buy and Amazon have it for $1499.

Instead of getting the rebate I did an exchange for the 60 inch at 1799 at Best Buy. This set was priced at $2499 on black Friday when I bought the 55 inch 700 difference. Now I have upgraded for 200 or 300 depending on your perspective of the prices

One quick comment on tha,t while I am happy with the 60 inch the detail and the colour was slightly better on the 55 inch,also with the 60 inch I notice more glare on the screen.

One of the ways of getting a deal is if the price go up and one of the dealers have not raised the price in the timely fashion or the converse if a delear lowers his price prior to the competition.

One of the main issues now is supply as the current models are harder to locate in certain areas as it is the end of the model year.

There are still bargains out there for the fortunate and the keen consumer.

Samsung uses unilateral pricing, so does Sony and now LG. This is the same thing you'll find with brands like Apple and Tempurpedic. You get a license to sell their producted (hence licensed retailers) and if you abuse the terms of their license they yank their product off of your shelves. They are basically fixing the margins for wholesalers and retailers and ultimately it's a worse situation for the consumer.

That being said, if you see a deal on a Samsung TV, you will see the same deal everywhere. If you're in the market for a Samsung you need only determine who your favorite retailer is for whatever reasons those may be (brick and mortar location, tax free, warranty, etc).

Well said perhaps this will reduce the endless posts about bargains on the the forum

Now that members realize unilateral pricing good terminolgy You are correct Apple is number one at that.

The way some merchants got around that was to offer a incentive such as a gift card, some of the retailers are now offering free sound bars
or sound bars at reduced prices.
