Not that I'm aware of. Some posters in the es8000 thread really hated CE dimming as well. A European user posted a "fix" for CE dimming that he found on a European website -- essentially involves cranking up the brightness and offsetting the increased brightness using the white balance settings. See this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1435194/tweak-disabling-autodimming-for-samsung-eseries-smart-led-tv-mine-is-es6710/0_100 Imagine it works for the 7100 as well.

Yah not sure i wanna ghetto rig it since i got my settings looking good. This is this tvs only flaw... Viewing angle sucks but that was expected.

I had my heart set on the es8000 but I don't know if I can really justify the $1200 price difference. Now considering the 7100. Anyone have some input for me? Much appreciated. I will never use the camera on the 7500 or 8000. Currently have the un55d6000 and while the picture is very good, I am in love with the thin bezel on the new es series. Do u think any of these TVs is worth the upgrade?

I have the d6000 as well and the picture and motion is def better on the es7100. The colors seem better on the 7100 as well. My set also has no banding or flashlighting and d6000 does. For 1499 its a good deal but if you have no issues with your d6000 you might wanna think about it.

My d6000 also has bad input lag even in game mode. The 7100 has almost no noticeable lag and is prtty smooth.
post #1745 of 2849
Thanks for the reply daneDiz. I'm really leaning toward it now. I just really don't see enough of a difference to pay $1200 more for the 8000.

The 8000's I looked at in big box stores all,had noticeable banding. I also knew I would never use the cameras. I chose the 7100 60" because I saw no banding, didn't need the camera, picture qualitY was good and obviously price. Just my .02.

I think Brightness set above 46 in Movie Mode reduces CE Dimming.

Honestly it doesn't bother me.....cool.gif

Yah I was overreacting a bit earlier hehe. Shouldn't complain about a near perfect tv.
post #1749 of 2849
thought CE dimming was Off in Movie Mode. I completly agree in Standard Mode CE dimming is greatly reduced with each step past 45. Using 46 In Standard Mode really is noticablly less. To prove this, If I set my brightness to 45 and then turn Off the source I am watching in Standard Mode, the picture completely goes Black. When the settings are 46 or more the dimming doesnt kick in when the source (my cable box) is turned off. The picture goes really dim but not black (panel off). Doing this in Movie mode regardless of the brightness setting seems to remain dim and never completely black when I turn the viewing source off. I'm still on Firmware ver 1023 and am not sure if the newer versions act like this. Just saying........ You might want to try it and if you get the same results, up the brightness to a min of 46 and the see how your CE dimming affects the picture.

Hi I received my TV today (first time Samsung owner) - looks fantastic. 2 issues I'd like your help with though:

1. When I view streamed SD from Xbox the images looks blocky before settling down.
2. When I watch a streamed movie from Amazon (HD) I sometimes see a jerky response when the camera is panning slowly across a scene.

Any suggestions on where I might go in settings to mitigate these issues?

I see this sometimes when running "Standard" or "Smooth" motion settings. Try setting that to "Clear" or turn it off and see if it goes away.

Pixilation Macro blocking

New 55es7100 is less than a week old so just starting to play with the settings. I have messed a little with the motion setttings (currently have auto motion plus and led motion plus turned off) but I am experiencing some pixilation that is most notable when scenes are changing and logos pop up (fast action) It was REALLY bad for the 5-10 minutes I watched the Pro-Bowl last weekend. I suspect the problem might be Comcast (I have a comcast HD box with HDMI to the TV) but what is strange is I never really noticed it like this on my Samsung LT4661. Am I noticing it more because of the 240 refresh rate versus the 60 hz rate on my old TV or could it be the TV and/or settings?
post #1754 of 2849
I just bought this TV last night and am pretty excited. I read through a lot of posts and will refer to post 631 for calibrations. My family plays a lot of games on the 360/PS3/WIIU. I would greatly appreciate some advice on recommended gaming settings. We play what most others do; Call of Duty/Halo/Madden/Mario games so any help with getting the most out of first person shooter would be great. I went thru about 400 posts (631-1006) and didn't see anything, but I may have missed it.
post #1755 of 2849
I know I will kick myself whoever figures out my small dilemma.
I have my 7100 connected via one HDMI cable to my Yamaha RX-A2000. All other sources connect to the 2000. When I power up my home theater I have audio for a few seconds and then the current 2000 input, for example, input 2 (satellite/pcm) automatically switches to audio 1 which is unused input. Once I press the input 2 button on the Yammy remote it reverts to the correct satellite/pcm mode and I have no further problems until the next power down/up. Not a huge problem but surely it can be fixed, I hope.
I tried both HDMI 1 and 2 on the 7100 thinking maybe it was ARC (which I still do not understand) related, but nothing changed. It is possible that during initial setup of the 7100 I did something wrong but I'm not smart enough to figure it out. I could do a reset, but I will humble myself first and listen to your advice.
I swear I think I'm losing it!

Best Ultra Slim, Tilting, Locking Wall Mount

This thread is great - thanks for everyone's help and advice. I recently just bought my Samsung 55ES7100 and am looking for a good ultra slim wall mount that is capable of tilting and has a security lock (or some type of theft/security mechanism). I saw monoprice's ultra slim mount and it looks exactly like the one I need, just not sure it has the theft prevention mechanism on it.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a VESA 400 x 400 pattern, ultra slim tilting mount, with a good lock system? (tumbler and key, padlock, etc.) Hoping it can tilt at least 15 degrees. Is it possible to just use the monoprice mount but buy a generic padlock to secure the TV to the mount?

I haven't taken the TV out of the box yet so don't know if a padlock might be included, how long the power cord is, etc.

Thanks for the help!

Regarding motion processing Ive been using this setting I found off cnet, they use it for every Samsung TV:

Auto Motion Plus: Custom
LED Motion Plus: On

Auto Motion Plus submenu:
Blur reduction: 10
Judder reduction: 0

However if Im watching sports or playing Xbob/PS3 should I turn on Auto Motion to clear?
I thought I read when its activated it adds noise?

Anyway so far im keeping it as is, this pretty much shuts off the 240 and brings it down to 60, i think????
post #1758 of 2849
I have have the 55" 7100 for a week now. It has a pretty nice picture, I do noticed some washed out details in the face sometimes. SD is not as goos as my old Samsung 61" DLP. I am having a 60" Samsung 7000 plasma delivered soon, I am looking forward to comparing the 2. The 1 think I do not like is the auto motion control is buried deep in the menu so turning it off and on for sports/actin vs film is a hassle. I would like to see a shortcut but like they have for 3D ( which I will rarely use)

so by your logic all 8000's have banding? and 7100's dont?

come on....that varies from tv to tv, not from model to model....

besides hd content at most stores dont come from a pure single HD cable...they often use component cables thru and amplifier so every tv can get the same picture....

8000 vs 7100 is like apples and oranges....cant even compare by your logic.....if your tv is not satisfactory to you, return it, and get the same model....sometimes crap hits the fan from the assemby line to you living room...these tvs come from half way around the world....something is bound to happen in shipping..... wink.gif

A simple explanation I was told. For anything filmed: movies, Tv shows etc you want these off. For Live TV, Sports, non-filmed content you want it on and should play with the setting to see what you like best
post #1761 of 2849
has anyone compared the 7100 to the 6000, 6100, 6500 in home? do you notice a difference in black level, shadow detail picture quality?

These tv are assembled inTijuanna Mexico in order to take advantage of the cheap labour and the NAFTA Treayt between Canada/ US and Mexico which permits the goods to enter the country duty free

In fact I bought my TV Jan 22 2013 at Best Buy and the Tv was manufactured Jan 2013.

Many of the parts are made elsewhere ususually the screens(shades) are made in Korea

When I hit the information button on the TV when I was watching blue ray it gives me the screen resolution top left.

On the bottom right there is a round dial in green LED HD and TV with an arrow type dial. In the middle of the wheel there is a battery indicator which I believe is for the remote.

What is the purpose of the wheel????

I could not find anything on the literature supplied

Does the RX-A2000 support ARC?

if above answer is yes then do you want the ES7100 to send internal audio down to the A2000. If yes then you must use HDMI2.

This sounds like a possible Anynet+ problem. Is this on or off on the ES7100 and is HDMI-CEC set up correctly for the A2000.

During the sports I was playing with the different motion settings but nothing really helped the pixilation. I find it hard to believe this TV would show that much pixilation but what is puzzeling is that none of the other TVs shows it but all the other TVs are smaller and only 60 HZ. Would the 240 HZ of this TV show the pixilation more and just indicate there is a problem with the comcast signal? Of course they say the signal is fine.

Bought 60 inch Costco version UN60ES7150F last weekend. It is on sale for $1749. Previously I was debating whether to get the ES800 series which cost around $2999

I'm so glad I bought the ES7150F. Loving this TV so far.

That I would not know but my guess would be the incoming signal. I have Comcast and sometimes movies pixilate or buffer. All digital signal but the signal quality is not great. (My opinion) I have a Sprint GPS antenna in my house to boost my cell phone signal. It is hooked up to my internet. It often screws up. Sprint had me run a VOIP test and the quality of signal was poor, consistently poor, everytime I ran the terst over several days. I think Comcast internet and cable signal is compressed, degraded and at a minimum quality to deliver their product so being at the minimum threshold it will at times fall below and that is when we see issues with the TV picture or internet connection.

Have you seen the same issue watching a blu ray? How about streaming a HD sporting event? any issues there? It used to be for me watching a football game in HD it would freeze but it never happened watching it in SD

You should call Comcast and have them send a signal to your Tivo or whatever box you have. That took care of some of my issues, but i have RCN.

I don't have a blu ray to test it out........I know.....a shame to have this TV and not have blu ray......working on that with the wife. Have not streamed anything yet so don't know if it pixilates there or not. What I was going to do was move my DVR up to the bedroom and play back the portion of the pro bowl I recorded and see if it pixilates on that TV or not. Will keep you posted.
