I first picked up the Panasonic 65S64, retutrned it for a Panasonic 65VT60, returned it for a Panasonic 65ST60, returned it for a Samsung 65F6400 and finally settled with a Samsung 75F6400.

I havent bought a TV in 6+ years and this past 4-5 months have been a little crazy. I've quickly learned that NO TV is perfect, no matter how high the clowns at CNET rate them or how highly they're recommended, they ALL have issues & tradeoffs. Even after owning the reference quality Panasonic VT60, the Samsung 75F6400 is the right TV for me.

Question: I want to mount this TV on the wall. How do i take the feet/stand off this 75" monstrosity?

Thanks guys!
Hi Eddie,
glad you to hear you found TV that's right for you. I love mine also. Anthony gave me great idea about World war Z in 3D. Can't wait.

Regarding taking the legs of off monster: you just pry them open. I thought also I would break it. Just stick small flat screw driver on top ( where legs and TV connect) and pry it open. It is easier then it seems. Once you open a cover you will find 2 screws holding the legs.
Good luck

Eddie congrats and welcome to the club.

Emporio - yikes that was brave of you! I haven't had to remove my stands but I gotta tell you - what you describe doing would've scared the crap out of me! eek.gif

Glad it works though smile.gif

Thanks for the tip!

thanks anthony. I'm very happy with the TV. I have a large room and the 65's were just too small for my space. The 75" inch screen is just what the doctor ordered. I do miss the deep blacks & jaw-dropping picture quaility on the Panasonic VT60 but I sure as hell don't miss the fan noise.

Anthony - trust me I was super careful. I took me almost 30 min to take 1st one open. I did want to break anything.

Where do you guys get your 3D movies? I rent most of my movies from Red Box or Netflix
post #456 of 785
I bought WWZ because my wife is a zombie nut. I know there are a couple of Netflix like mail services specializing in 3D blurays but I think I will hold of until Netflix themselves offers them by mail. I'll probably order Avatar and Hobbit from Amazon though...

How are the speakers on this set? I have not had a chance to listen to this yet. I am just wondering if I needed to get something similar to a soundbar to enhance the sound. I thought about getting some bookshelf speakers to complement the set but I may start out with a soundbar if necessary.

Thanks
post #458 of 785
They're okay (75" owner here) but not great, and definitely not as good as a dedicated out board sound system. That said, try it in your environment as-is first. Worst case you can always add on later if you find the on board speakers aren't cutting it for you.

Thinking about buying the 50in model. Right now the price is 1100$. Can anyone tell me if I should wait for black friday/cyber monday or buy if I won't see a price drop?

Also thanks for all the posting anthony it really is nice to see first hand impressions that go into that much detail makes buying a TV a loy easier.

Hey guys,

I noticed even out of the box that my 55 F6400 has almost a hazy/white look to it. At first I figured it was just me, going from backlit to edge-lit technology but even after two weeks its still bothering me (and others who watch the TV). Its almost as if a low opacity white filter were applied on top of [almost] everything.

I've tried calibrating the TV using the HD 709 disc... however it did little to help. Switching through the different picture modes all have similar results. The flesh tones never look real and colors just seem to die out. My previous 550 series Samsung LCD looks much better (as do all of my Apple displays).

Of note: when using HD 709, I still see bars way past the reference white (no matter what I try).

Could this be a faulty set or is this normal? Changing the source does not help either. Watching Nightly News with Brian Williams is horrible and seems very pale, as does watching Game of Thrones.

Off angle viewing is very bad - but this I can understand as normal with edge-lit TVs.

Also: CEC stopped functioning completely for a few days, no matter what I tried I could not get it back up (and then it decided to start working yesterday) and on Sunday the backlight would just shut off every few minutes (no matter the source, picture mode settings, etc...). I had to unplug the TV for a few minutes to get it to work again.

Any thoughts?

Edit: I guess the best way I could explain it is that almost everything seems to have a "dream" effect to it. White "foggy" feel...

Zidjian - it's been that price for a while now. I would be surprised if they didn't lower it at least a little bit during Black Friday. Hard to say how much though as I don't really follow Samsung price changes in prior years. Can't say if it's worth waiting to save a little $ now. Also depends on your current situation. If you have a quasi-satisfactory set now maybe hold off. If not, 8 weeks may feel like an eternity to save what may amount to something like $100-200. Good luck either way.

Point - sounds like you have hdmi black level set to normal instead of low. Normal corresponds to PC levels of rgb (0-255) whereas Low corresponds to video levels (15-235). Check that as part of using Buzz' settings in movie mode, which I've posted here before and are also linked from the first page of the F8000 users thread.

On the brightness, it's not uncommon for these sets to be able to handle a contrast setting of 100 and still see the bars.

The problem with Black Friday/Cyber Monday price drops is that there is no guarantee the model you're after will be discounted. They don't discount everything, just certain items to get you into the store/on the website, and then while you're there you'll probably consider buying other things (that they haven't marked down.) That's how those shopping days work for stores.

While TVs are definitely something they discount, they don't discount every TV. You'll have to wait for an ad to see if your preferred store drops the price.

Black Friday is more of a serendipity; "Oh, they have that marked way down. I'll buy that" rather than, "Man, I hope this specific thing is marked down."

Does anyone know how to turn off on screen display showing the volume bar when controlling other Anynet+ devices?
post #465 of 785
Hi guys. I just received my 60F6400 and am having trouble keeping it connected wirelessly. It connects then drops after a couple minutes. I have a Cisco Valet wireless router and have never had trouble connecting any device. I also have an older 46ES6100 that connected first time and has stayed connected for over a year. Any suggestions on what to try. I believe the Cisco is the newer WPA2 security. My folks just got a 65ES6500 and had trouble.....they had an older WEP router that once the Verizon tech changed it to WPA2 and generated a new key, it has worked fine.
post #466 of 785
How reflective is the screen for a bright room with 3 windows? Im stuck between the 50 f6400 and the sony 50r550a.

They both seem to have reflective for semi- reflective screens. Samsung seems to win the app battle....both seem good for gaming.

Help! My wife is going to kil me if I don't get a tv...lol.

Why did you all choose the Samsung vs the Sony, they seem closely matched.

Thanks

I mostly hang out in the audio forums, but I've been considering upgrading my display. I currently have a Panasonic 65V10 (I've always preferred plasma), but I'm wanting to get a larger display. It seems that they don't make > 65" plasmas (at least not affordable ones), and a front projector isn't really an option in my room.

Anyhow, that leaves me with these jumbo LED TVs from Sharp, Vizio, and Samsung. I don't want a Vizio, and I feel that the 80" Sharp is too large for my room. It seems like the Samsung 75F6400 hits the sweetspot of size/price for me, so I'm strongly considering it. I had one concern, if any of you can help me out:

-When I looked at TVs at Best Buy, they had a demo loop that included somebody hitting a golf shot. On the "120 Hz" TVs, I could see two golf balls in the air (one trailing right behind the other). As a plasma guy, I've never seen anything like this and it would not be acceptable. Has anyone seen this type of thing on the F6400? I thought maybe the TVs I saw weren't true 120 Hz (perhaps 60 Hz with simulated 120), so if this is a true 120 Hz TV I'm hoping it won't be an issue.

I've never noticed this in any sports on my 75". That said, there are tons of motion type settings on this set. I would definitely encourage you to take a copy of Buzz' settings from the F8000 thread (linked in the first posts) and check that out before you pull the trigger.

All said I really love mine.

See my earlier post. Updating to the latest firmware might help. If you are dropping too quickly to update using the TV, you can download the updated firmware from your computer to a USB drive.

I went ahead and ordered the 75F6400 (supposed to arrive later this week), but I have some concerns about the stand. One of the reasons I chose a 75" TV over an 80" is that it wouldn't require me to totally redo my room (or so I thought). Then I saw the picture of the legs on this thing (I originally thought it was center mounted like the smaller models), and I now have an issue.

My TV stand is 60", and it looks like the legs flare out to 65" or so. If I have to get a new TV stand, it will be a domino effect that will lead to a new equipment rack, media cabinet, etc, which will make this TV quite costly in the end. What I was wondering is if I could invert the legs. I know it would be a bit less stable, but the TV isn't in a high traffic area. Has anyone tried this? Any reason it wouldn't work?

Here's my "artist's rendition" of what I'm proposing:
post #471 of 785
Got the 55 incher today. But one problem really bugs me. I bought it in Czech rep and I can't select GB as my country in the settings.
Only east block countries are available.
It knows where it's at! I need GB to get Netflix, that's why I got a smart TV! I have an US subscription and I wanted to use it without
the laptop being the server. The TV is too smart I guess. Is there a way to convince it that I'm in GB?
I could do that with my old Sony, but not this one. Anybody has an idea? All the other apps available are useless to me.
Otherwise the pic is OK, not as good as my other TV in the states - Panasonic plasma, I must be a plasma guy.
I'll be in the Czech rep for a while, I need Netflix, badly...the pic is nothing special, but I have not changed the settings yet,
will work on that tomorrow.
The good part - came with both remotes.
Thanks for any help!

Hi there, I have ordered a 75 inch of this model over here in the U.K and it is arriving this week!

To answer your question, you have to go into your router and use a vpn or proxy to make it look like you are in the U.K and then connect your TV, so that it thinks you are in the U.K. This has been discussed on UK forums and it worked on my friends Samsung 42" Model so that he could get the US netflix over here. Hope that helped!
post #473 of 785
Right now I'm using a laptop as the Netflix server with Hola unblocker. I was hoping to be able to remove the laptop from the chain. I'll look into the
router config options per your suggestion.
post #474 of 785
Sunny, can you point me where this discussion is (router config) ? I can't find it, thanks!

Here's my "artist's rendition" of what I'm proposing:

The mounting spots for the two legs are about 54-55" apart. So if you could reverse them like this it should work.

However, there are covers over where the legs screw into the set, so I can't see exactly how they're attached (nor therefore whether they could be easily reversed). The covers wouldn't come off easily and I can't really get to them by myself with the set in place.

That said, someone earlier in the thread talked about removing the covers to remove the legs for wall mounting. Sorry can't recall off hand who that was, but if you look back maybe you can find them and perhaps they can say whether what you're proposing is feasible. Good luck!

Thanks for the response. I'll report back on my findings once the TV arrives in a few days.

hi, i have purchased the UE65F6400 and initially i was really disappointed by the clouding issues on the screen, however it seems that after a few hours of burn-in the issues became less appaerent.

i am sending two photos of clouding on my set: first has been taken at ISO3200 to highlight the anomaly, the second is at ISO100. both photos where taken with backlight set to 20




what do you think about the screen uniformity? is it normal for LED TVs or is it too apparent?

It is the same thing in principal as what Hola unblocker is doing. It is masking your true location using a vpn for the location you want to display. To get into your router you will need to go to google and put in your router model and it will tell you how to edit the settings. Type http://192.168.0.1/ into your web browser to access the router login page.

For me the answer lies in the question of real world viewing experience. I'm not much of a photo buff but I assume the second picture looks pretty much like what you see in person? If so I would say that's pretty good actually. Fwiw I have my backlight set to 12 in Movie mode (part of Buzz' settings from the 8000 owners thread, first post) and it's plenty bright. Try those settings and see what you see...

I'm afraid it's not that easy. I have a UPC EPC3925 router. There is a bunch of sites offering VPN for a fee.
Unblock-US is one of them, they charge 5 bucks, which is not bad. But - what is bad is that the connection speed is limited by the VPN - so I heard. I can try it for a week for free and see what it does to my connection speed. Right now I have 60/6.
I tried to find specific instructions how to do that on my own, but can't find it.
If you know of such thing - please LMK. All I care about is Netflix, Hulu and Pandora. Don't care for TV.
I still don't know much about the TV itself yet, there is a lot of setup options and configurations - connecting to my PC as a media server etc. As I said - lot of stuff to play with. But the silver 4-pod is ugly!
Another thing - the installers did not use gloves, so my screen has some fingerprints from those schmucks, how would you clean it? I'm afraid to touch it with a standard glass cleaner. Maybe I try just a clean water first.
