post #3301 of 4994

Another question...should hd movies from my cable box have black bars on left and right sides when my picture size is selected to 16:9?  Thanks very much.

With all auto motion stuff off do you see any ghosting? my parents have a 60" 6000 series and I saw quite a bit in their set.

Also I was wondering if someone who watches Hockey can tell me how the quality is?

post #3304 of 4994

Fixed my own problems...setting on cable box needed to be changed....tv is fantastic...though I find it quite reflective...have it in bedroom and can't have lamp on night table on or it reflects on the screen....need to watch in the dark...no problem...awesome set...

I don't know what ghosting is. But, I never noticed anything on the TV that made me give it a second thought. Seriously. But...Im coming from CRT TV's. I have a small patch on the screen that looks like a blue cloud when the screen is totally dark, but you have to really look at it to find it. It doesnt particularly bother me because even scenes where that area is black, it doesnt really show up.....

Does anyone have calibration settings for watching HD television? I use "movie" mode when watching blu-rays but I'm wondering what works best for just watching TV. I use "natural" right now.

Is it normal that the Auto Motion is not available in "movie" mode?
post #3307 of 4994
You know, I thought these sets were on sale this whole time but after looking at Samsung's website, they are priced exactly the same as what BB and Amazon would like you to believe is their sale price. 55" @ $1299, 60" @ $1600 and 65" @ $2000. I'm going to wait till super bowl to grab my 60" hopefully at $1400 (or less)!
post #3308 of 4994
They are on sale. Samsungs website is reflecting current black Friday week pricing. Last week all were roughly $300 more.
post #3309 of 4994
So my initial impression of this TV is that it's amazing for the money. I picked up the 65" from Amazon Monday and I've spent most of the week tweaking and playing with it. Last year I went through 2 LG 6700s and 2 7600s dealing with bleed and flashlighting. Samsungs implementation of local dimming is far beyond what LG can offer and cinema black is a godsend for letter box movies. One thing that I noticed is when trying to adjust movie mode with the WOW disc, the whites won't get white enough even with contrast maxed at 100. The other modes come very close. I can't use movie mode anyway due to the lack of local dimming drives me nuts. I don't have any bleed, but some clouding on the right side easily rectified by the micro dimming. NOTHING compared to the garbage LG served up to me 4 times in a row. And edge lit led that is perfectly uniform without dimming doesn't exist in this price range anyway. The pairing of this set with the PS4 is jaw dropping. Need for speed is pure eye candy and call of duty makes me want to never stop playing. I sold my 55" LG and my Epson 8350 for this and I couldn't be happier. 3D on the LG was cleaner due to the passive glasses, but the brightness and resolution on the Samsung 3D is far beyond what the LG can do. Overall very happy and would highly recommend at the current prices. The only drawback I can come up with is that it's definitely more sensitive to source material. You can easily tell a 5 star bluray from a poorly mastered one.

Do you watch any fast pace sports? Football, Hockey? If so how are the quality of the games?

post #3311 of 4994
Well my directv isn't getting installed until next week so I can't really comment on sports right now. I don't use any of the auto motion settings except on 3D. What I can say is that the panel definitely handles motion better that my previous LG 55LM7600 and the 6700 that I tried before it with what content I have seen, mainly movies. Sorry I can't be more help.
post #3312 of 4994
Ordered the 60 inch 7100 today from best buy. Will be here Sunday. I went in originally wanting the sharp 70 inch but thought the $800 price difference was too much. Now im wondering if I should have gotten the 65 inch 7100. Distance to main seating position is 11 feet. I currently have a 50 inch plasma. Any thoughts?

Standard mode.
Backlight 10-15 (preference... This set is bright)
Contrast 95
Brightness 42
Sharpness 20
Color 45
Tint G45/R45
Dynamic Contrast off
Black tone dark
Flesh tone 0
Rbg only off
Color space native
Gamma 0
Motion Lighting off
Color tone standard
Dig clean view off
Mpeg filter off
Hdmi black level normal
Auto motion off
Cinema black medium

I've been playing around and that's what I've been using for the past couple days. You can turn on game mode and plug in those settings as well. Every panel is different but that's what my personal preference is right now. I'm still playing with the clean view and the Mpeg filter. I left them on auto initially, but noticed on some Blu-ray discs today that it loses some detail with those enabled, yet at times helps with artifacts. If it's a pristine mastered newer disc, off looks great. Some older titles with extra grain look a little too noisy. Like I said, still working with that setting to see what I prefer.

yea that's actually close to mine as well. What do u have the rgb setting on the ps4 set to? I was wondering if the 7100 supports the full range or is it better off at limited I'm struggling with that one

I checked and the setting to sync the Cable Box Power On/Off was set correctly. All other functions are OK including a Beyond GREAT picture still. Mabye better? My gut feel is it IS the Web Site that hs mad a recent change in their web page login script.eek.gif

Sorry to hear about your Login issues.

Good to hear that fw. ver. 1117 still looks great.

I don't use the Smart Hub enough to suggest a fix.

The local dimming is impressive and the uniformity.

The white levels in Movie Mode won't clip even at contrast 100 - which I like.

+2, on the F7100's sensitivity to source material- very high and very low quality is undeniable.

Well I wrote to the Forum Admins and was told this web site does NOT support the Smart TV platforms. They only Support Internet Explorer, Mozilla, & Chrome & maybe one other browser.. Can't remember the last one. Anyways, that ws NOT the answer I was hoping for but it still points to the Web site as the most likly reason for the Login problem. They were NO help at all. Doesn't any body else on this Forum use their TV to post here? As for the STB power On issue, No cure for that but my Cox Remote has the ability to turn ON The TV & STB at the same time If I press & hold the Power ON button for a few seconds. The Cox Remote is a multi device remote and the TV is programmed into it. This work-around is good enough to NOT worry about the TV Universal Remote feature no longer Turning the STB ON when the TV is Powered On. As I said before, the Universal remote still does change channels on the STB, the TV Guide is functional as well & does Power Off the STB when I turn OFF the TV. I believe others may run into this as well but maybe it is unique to my STB model # so it may not be an issue for others with a different Box manufacture. I'll just have to do one more Firmware update down the road for a hopeful cure for this newly created but tiny issue. AND since all of my other Logins remain in tact on the TV Browser without having to re-enter the Login each time, all is well & it's NOTHING to take away the enjoyment value this set delivers!biggrin.gif

Hey guys! (new here :)

 

I'm prepared to upgrade my current set (LG 42") and I've been looking at the Samsung 7100 series. At the moment, the UN60F7100 is listed at $1,597.99 on Amazon and I'm close to buying it. I may wait till Monday to see if it goes down a bit. Is this a good price?

 

Thanks!

SWC,

I would take a good look at the 65". We sit 13' feet from the screen and replaced a 52" Samsung with a 65F7100. The extra thirteen inches is great, and the bezel is a little slimmer. If you are going to keep the set for several years as most of us do, I think you'll be glad you opted for the extra screen real estate.

Ordered F7100 and will receive it next week hopefully.

Need inputs from forum members on what's next?

Which 3D Blu Ray player are people using with this set? Or is it preferable to buy PS4?

Do I need hdmi cables for playing blu ray, I see there are plenty of wireless options available, are there any gotchas with wireless blu ray systems?

post #3323 of 4994
Hi all,

Quick question. I have a DirecTV box setup with the 7100. I can see and control the channels in the Smart Guide. Is there a way to filter the channels? Right now it's showing ALL channels for DirecTV. Can I use the "Channels I Get" filter like on my DirecTV box?

I was set on the 60", but felt a bit underwhelmed looking at it in the store (combination of size expectations and the bigger frame).  Went with the 65 and am glad I did...and with the current sales/price drops its even better.  Hmm...decisions, decisions... go with what works for you.  Great set either way.(once you get the settings dialed in)

post #3325 of 4994
Decided to exchange 60 inch for the 65 and they were sold out. Went ahead and bought the sharp 70 inch 240 hz smart tv with 3d. Its huge but glad I did it.
post #3326 of 4994

Do you guys plug your TVs directly into the wall outlet or run it through a surge protector (55" specifically)? If so, which one is best?

Did a thread search and it didn't exactly produce much info.

post #3327 of 4994
I am loving my 46" F7100, but have notice some weird graininess and pixelation on certain content. Film content has been great Tron,Prometheus, Captain America and such. Gaming has been where I have noticed the pixelation on PS3 titles like the Last of Us and Deadspace seem to go in and out of focus and really dark sections will smear while panning camera. Any suggestions for this?
post #3328 of 4994
well i have a 60" 7100 from best buy and i am very disappointed...picture looks like crap...very pixelated in the faces, rapid motions, edges from hands and arms....i tried all sorts of calibrations posted here and another forums and nothing...do i have to return it or i have to pay 250 for calibration and hope the crappy Pixelated HD will go away... before this a have 6 series 47"sammy and now this TV LED is in my bedroom and it look gorgeous as usual... anyone before me has this issue and if yes how do you fix it??? thanks

The price is good. Check camelcamelcamel.com, for price history.

The current price reductions are straight from Samsung corporate - manufacturer incentive rebates back to the retailer. This is the lowest price that these TVs have ever been and the incentive is dated to expire Dec 2nd. I strongly doubt they'll go any lower.

Lifehacker.com recently did a great round-up on surge protectors. Go over there and search.

Try PirateCove's settings? They were reposted a few pages back.
post #3330 of 4994

Tried out 3D for the first time today... found out it keeps the 2D/3D picture options separate, so I set mine again for 3D, only with a tad more brightness.(due to the glasses)  Unfortunately HDMI Black and Cinema Black are unavailable in 3D mode.  I understand it's better to have 3D a little brighter, but I do miss the deep blacks.... anyone found a workaround for getting the 3D viewing closer to 2D in image quality?

 

Btw, do the glasses charge up when 3D mode is off?  Anyone found a good storage solution, and also good wipes to use for the lenses?

 

I do notice a little eye soreness unfortunately :(

 

Thanks.
