I've been plenty happy with my 46" F8000. I haven't touched the color adjustments or anything else for that matter in months. Everything looks just great. Long-time readers here know the hell I went through with Best Buy and Samsung to get to this point, with many poor-quality models in-between (including the previous ES7500 which was garbage). I have a few minor issues (stuttering with AMP enabled will never be fixed, I'm convinced), but really the big thing I don't like is the extremely limited viewing angles that make having friends over for a movie not an option for me, as I would be the only person in my room with a good view of the set. Side viewing of this tv is just plain lousy. Don't let anybody tell you differently. But if have are watching it from head-on or very close to head-on, the image is terrific. Great 3D, great built-in speakers (so good I never touch my sound bar - I use either my tv speakers or my surround receiver for movies). And I have really gotten used to the touch remote that's included. It's my go-to remote, even though I have some nice alternatives. Virtually no flashlighting. Zero clouding. None. Zilch. My old ES7500 was a disaster with clouding and flashlighting. Overall a fantastic tv if you can overlook the viewing angle issue.

Exactly. That's why I don't post much anymore. I've given up hope of AMP get fixed, and otherwise, I've just been enjoying the set. I've been watching image slideshows, 3D movies, and lots of great classics on blu-ray, and I've really been enjoying it all.

Have you watched Pacific Rim in 3D yet? I'm curious if anyone else experienced as much crosstalk with that film as I have. I'm guessing it's because it wasn't shot in 3D. The Hobbit looked fantastic throughout but Pacific Rim was a less enjoyable 3D experience on my F8000. Light sources in particular were a huge offender.

Got my 65" last night and quickly put it up and had time to watch Tangled 3d with my 4 yr old who was absolutely mesmerized. I couldn't even begin to count how many times I said, wow that looks cool! After seeing that movie 500 times in 2d, watching it in 3d was a whole new experience. 

 

I didn't have time to fiddle with things on the tv but right now I am blown away.

No TV is perfect. With Edgelit Tv's, you will have some issues due to light being around the sides.. With that being said, I am very happy with the unit. Very happy. Picture is perfect.. smile.gif

I don't have that one yet. I plan to but I'm hoping for a sale. I saw it in the theatre and it was amazing. I just bought Prometheus 3D which I was very disappointed in but there are a ton of extras and I figured it was worth it for hours of extras and deleted scenes - I paid only $3 at Best Buy for the 4-disc set ($13 on sale and I had a $10 certificate). I got Star Trek: Into Darkness 3D and The Great Gatsby 3D for Christmas.

Pacific Rim had very strong 3D in the theatre so I wouldn't be surprised if there was some crosstalk with that title. Crosstalk is usually visible when there is very strong 3D present, resulting in very large separation between left/right images, or when the scene is very high-contrast, like a white object against a black background. It's not due to the conversion. I saw Titanic which was a conversion and the 3D was some of the best I've seen yet in a conversion, along with Pacific Rim and Jurassic Park, yet I don't recall having any major issues with crosstalk when I watched it on this set. Same for the conversion of The Wizard of Oz, which looked great with no crosstalk to speak of. House of Wax 3D looked amazing on this tv, but because of the very strong 3D (they really knew how to make 3D films in the 50's), that title had some crosstalk. I didn't mind though because it was only an issue for some scenes, and I'd highly recommend it to anybody who loves 3D. My girlfriend who normally doesn't care one way or the other about 3D said it looked amazing. Amityville 3D by Shout Factory also had very strong 3D (80's 3D films often had great 3D), but also had some crosstalk on occasion.

I should pick up Avatar and Jurassic Park in 3D. I might order some new active glasses, too. Does anyone have recommendations for a better pair, especially for people with prescription glasses?

Ironically, yours was one of the saga's I was reading about yesterday that prompted my post. Very glad to see that you have things worked out and are happily viewing now! biggrin.gif

Excellent point. In my time lurking here I have certainly seen a community that is willing and able to help when needed.

I just bought the 65F8000 last week. I noticed the firmware on it is 1114. Should I upgrade to most recent firmware? What is the most recent firmware. How does the new firmware compare to my installed 1114. Does the new firmware produce better picture or anything else is better?
post #4185 of 6715
I'm also extremely happy with my 60F8000.This the best Edge lit LED,LCD TV I have ever owned.I also have a 65VT50 Plasma and the picture on this LCD is pretty dam good compared to my calibrated VT50
post #4186 of 6715
Im still browsing and learning about this TV--probably gonna pick up a 60F8000. And one question, what is AMP and ACR? I hear alot about it but no explanation of what is is and does! Can I get a brief rundown on this please. Thanks

I go with the latest all the time.. They are usually to fix "bugs". I think the latest is to fix netflix issues.
post #4188 of 6715
My old firmware was 1102. I upgraded to 1113.3. HD quality is terrible on 1113.3. It is realy very bad. Is it like that on everybody? I have some friends and they all have this problem. I am very disappointed.

Hairs were very clear before 1113.3 upgrade. Now it is very blury

My TV is 46f8000. Samsung says no problem with new firmware but they are lier. I know 8 different person who are very disappointed with this new firmware. SD channels are a bit better, but hd quality is realy worse. What do u think?

I noticed on Samsung website the last one is 1116.1. Is this the latest? Any issues and benefits with this version 1116.1?
post #4191 of 6715
I am from Turkey and it seems the latest firmware is 1113.3.
post #4192 of 6715
I'm on 1117

So how do you find it compared to previous versions? (ie. Ver 1114)?
post #4194 of 6715
To be honest,I see no diffrence at all.
post #4195 of 6715
I wouldn't expect any visual difference from firmware to firmware. I think they are just optimizing video processing and input lag and things of that nature. Any picture quality improvements would probably be too small to notice.

What about that "upgrade box" I think out middle this year.  To upgrade your TV to like a newer model, kind of like how Apple did with iOS 7.  When I upgraded to iOS 7 was almost like a new phone.  I have since gone driod  LOL  Tired of Apple and how they "lock you" into certain things.  Not to mention I hate iTunes.  Oh, back to the box, interested to see what that may bring.

Can I quote myself ?  LOL

 

Smart Evolution Kit, that's what they are calling it.  Plugs in back of the TV and updates/grades features

AMP is Auto Motion Plus. It pertains to Soap Opera Effect that many don't like. You have Off, Clear, Standard, and Smooth. Smooth gives you the Soap Opera Effect. The problem is, it introduces a lot of judder/stutter to the picture when on anything but Off and Clear.

Thanks --so I'm safe to say most people keep it on Clear mode.
post #4200 of 6715
Clear Mode or Custom: Anti-Blur 10, Anti-Judder 0, and LED Clear Motion On seems to be the most preferred. This will give you no "Soap Opera Effect" but keep things very sharp during motion.
