Just wanted to say hi to everyone
, and thank this great community for awesome tips/tricks, also say a few words about my experience with the F7100 series vs F8000... it might help someone trying to decide on which tv to get?! I first purchased a 65" F8000 about 2 1/2 weeks ago and it really had a awesome picture, comparing it to my old Samsung UN55B8500! No flashlighting in corners, black levels were second to none, great uniformity and just almost perfect tv! But since i game a lot, it had awful lag, even when game mode was engaged. So i decided to return it and get a 75"F7100, thanks to this forum and some members that had mentioned it! BB was really great, and delivered the new tv and took away the old one away.
I really couldn't believe that picture quality was the same vs the F8000! Same great black levels, no flashlighting andd check this out, without game mode engaged on F7100 it was better than F8000 with game mode on
with game mode on it was just lightning fast 29ms vs 89 on F8000:) But i made a huge mistake of upgrading the firmware to FW1105 and right away i started getting "white bouncing boxes" ( one on top, one on the bottom) also noticed that the tv lost a lot of sharpness detail as well! White bouncing boxes only happened if i had "cinema black" on med or high, but i lost deep punchy blacks on letterboxed movies, so i decided to return the tv once again! It just got delivered yesterday, and right away it was updated to FW1105 ... i watched 3 movies so far, cinema black on high, and no white boxes, no issues at all!
This has to be the best edge-lit tv out there and it's worth every penny. I'll report back in a week, once i get it calibrated, but i will not upgrade my FW at any cost in the future!
