Cmay is correct. It was originally the 75" ES8000. I saw it in person since I was at the 2012 CES show. I regret not going this year. I really thought most of what will be there will be the same OLED from last years, which it was, but I would have loved to see these sleek new 8000 models..as far as the same dimming goes, it has the same "ultimate" as the ES8000 but "SUPPOSEDLY" its not the same because the 9000 has the "Smart LED" and "Cinema black" settings that the 8000 doesn't have. But, last years 2011 D8000 had these same features for way less than $10K, so the 75" at $10K is a complete rip off

Here's a few pics of the new F8500

So, it looks like the F7000/F7500 is getting the Rosé gold bezel. You can kind of tell from this bottom picture in color

Great place for all Samsung related info

I guess it's a moot point, since the ES75 8000 is no longer available.

I'm sure the new F series will be sky high too, though I'd love to be proven wrong.

The 75" ES8000 was never available. It was supposed to be, but Samsung decided last min to turn it into a 75" ES9000 right after CES. Just like they just changed the F8000 to a F8500.

I heard that the reason for them doing all this, is because when they are showing these off at CES, the vendors and retail stores always complain that there's no high end model that cost a ridiculous price for the 1% of the population and most of the TVs are for the 99% population so then Samsung goes back to the drawing board and makes a higher end unit so these vendors and retail stores can made more profit since they don't make any money off models like the ES8000 and so fourth. These models are only really sold to celebrities and sports players and really wealthy people.

This is why I never buy them, because its like for instance a Toyota Camry/Avalon and a Lexus ES300/... They usually have the same engine. Or take the Acura for example, its really just a nicer higher end Honda. So your paying for the name really. Well, in the TV world, your paying for that higher # of that model. For example, take the ES8000 and the ES9000, in my eyes, the 8000 is very close to the 9000. Just a little, tiny bit higher end which is why they added the rose gold frame and the pop up camera and is really catered to the wealthy folks. But really all your paying for is that # being a 9 rather a 8. and also the 75" size difference, but thats really all. does the extra 10" mean its worth the extra $7K? or does it mean having that "Smart LED" and "Cinema Black" setting along with only 10" more worth the extra $7K? no way! I wish more people looked at things more this way, because they can save a ton of money when they buy things.

The only two things I care about are PQ and size. Not interested in anything smaller than 70" --not even a little. If one set has better blacks and color, that's the one I want. If it costs more , so be it. If it costs too much more, I'll wait. I wish more people saw it this way, there's be more of a market for quality over price, sets would improve, and prices would go down. That's how free markets work, and that's how they're supposed to work. I just don't see compromising quality to save money. You get what you pay for. And since this thread started as one about the F8000, that's the one I'm interested in. wink.gif

Supply and demand, baby. Dontcha just love it? biggrin.gif

I should be clear on something. Samsung has, for several years, claimed you can do local dimming with edge lighting. You cannot. You can do some very crude zoning at 2 times the number of LEDs you have maximum.

And when I say, "you cannot", I mean, "you cannot", It's not possible. It's not like they have some technology that changes physics. You get a maximum zone control of rectangular zones that go halfway across the screen and are in no greater number than the number of discrete LEDs you can control.

They can continue to hype this as something more -- they do it every year quite frankly -- but if it's again "edge lit precision microdimming" it's no revolution and I've wasted everyone's time getting excited based on Cnet's report.

Exactly.

Microdimming is not Local Dimming, they try to confuse people into thinking those two technologies are the same. Local Dimming is the real deal, and can only be used with Full Array LCD LED tvs.

I would never buy a tv that don't use Local Dimming.

IMO exactly what you're paying for when you buy a Samsung TV anyway. For the past few years they've been banking on their name and the fact that they know that people will buy whatever they slap 'Samsung" on I haven't seen any real innovation in their LED line since they stopped trying to compete with local dimming and telling us their garbage version of it was just as good as the real thing.

I ,like so many of the members of this forum value informed opinions but totally ignore the uninformed biased agenda of some posters. Saying that , I am anticipating the first knowledgeable review of the 65F8000 as to banding and uniformity of the display. I am hoping a 65F8000 panel will put an end to the Samsung Panel lottery. So lets hope we can purchase a quality product with both size and FACE MELTING PQ.

I AGREE WITH THIS POSTER 100%
post #374 of 3645
Honestly, the reason I started looking at Samsung was the fact that their displays are by far the sexiest that I have seen. I am really attracted to the almost non-existent bezels and the sleek and attractive stands on their sets. I know it sounds shallow, but I just really appreciate the element of design that they strive for. I agree that PQ is extremely important as well, but I am almost willing to sacrifice a bit on that for something that looks great in the room, even when turned off.

I agree. My es7100 supposedly has microdimming but has CE dimming. Makes no sense. Its garbage compared to sony's local dimming. My es7100 is going back indefinitely. I wont buy a Samsung again until they have true local dimming. Hopefully they will go full array again but doubtful.

really? what does the fw do? does it fix the banding problem and/or improve blacks?

i'm really curious because the prices have dropped to pretty reasonable levels.
post #377 of 3645
I think this thread title should be updated. Samsung have officially stated that this is an LED edge lit Smart TV.

In the video embed on HDTV News the Samsung guy says right at the start that it's edge lit. http://www.hdtv-news.com/samsung/f8000/

And yes, wow that F8500 looks amazing! Too bad they're going to confuse people with the same model name for the LED and Plasma!

They won't confuse anyone, I'm actually glad its the same model letter and number instead of throwing in a random S. Plasma will be PN##F8500 while the LED wil be UN##F8500. Gorgeous tv's for sure.

Finally!!!

Is anyone else worried that the spring loaded camera mechanism will break? Also is there any benefit to having the back of the TV finished. As far as I know, most people have their TV's situated where you will never see the back.

It can easily be changed. The thread starter needs to report your post to get any moderators attention and request the change. I'm a moderator on another forum - nothing to it.

It can be any post but should be from this thread as it brings attention to the proper place. I've done the same thing myself to get the ChromaPure thread title changed with no problems.
