If you're talking about the 70" A3E good luck with that. I waited 4hrs in line at Walmart on Thurs got a ticket, came back at 8, got a barcode, waited in line another 2 hrs to check out, loaded the TV up hooked it up and .... junk. Bad clouding. In fact, there was one giant cloud in the top right corner spanning across half the TV and inside that cloud were multiple mini clouds of different shades. Any black scene clouding was visible. There were other problems like light bleed all around the bezel and other uniformity issues. Completely unacceptable and this was supposed to be a gift. I just hauled the TV back for a refund and ordered this Samsung model from BB. Will be picking it up in store later today or tom. Can only say the gray Thursday shopping experience was my first and my last complete freaking madness it must have taken a year or two off my life span and the product was terrible. Hopefully this set will be acceptable but after this my expectations are low.

I should also mention the Walmart I went to only had 12 in stock! What a joke, there were about 40 people who came by asking for this TV while I was waiting in line.

More impressions, please! I'm sorely tempted to buy this to replace a beautiful 61" Samsung DLP purchased in 2006. It's still gorgeous and still, remarkably, on its first bulb (I only run it three or four times a week), but for $999, it got my attention. Thanks in advance!

Sadly, yes. The lack of audio outs is a problem for my setup. Although I am still sorely tempted, I think I may stay with my warhorse DLP for another year and look into a deal on a 70" panel along with a new AV receiver next Black Friday.

Will keep an eye on this thread though just because it's fun. smile.gif

So far is a very big improvement from what I had and for under $1000 I cant complain, also BB is allowing returns till January 15, so if something better shows up before then, (cyber Monday) the option to return this one is available.

"Real World" thanks for the ShopDiscover link I had forgotten about it.

Serious, returns till Jan 15th? Hmmm...that makes a trial run kinda tempting.

I use an AV Reciever, so the lack of ports isn't an issue for me. One HDMI to the receiver is all I'd need. I'm guessing that's the same for most people who use a receiver via HDMI. The EH6000 has more ports, including audio, if I'm not mistaken. That sells for $100 more at $1,099.

Audio output is not a feature I'd ever use. Also, I mentioned blotchy/blocky near-blacks earlier... I typically don't enable the digital NR on my sets, but doing so took care of that issue with no noticeable side effects. I've been tweaking and tweaking all day and I'm very happy with the picture right now. I'll run a few tests tonight or early tomorrow to be sure and then I'll post my config here.

We bought this yesterday and set it up last night. We watched the Kings vs. Clippers game in HD and it initially looked like garbage. When the ball was passed it look like you could see it in frames moving two feet at a time in chunky blocks. It turned out to be the built in "de-blurring" processing which is enabled by default, we turned it off and it was perfect after that. Thanks to this thread for that or we would have returned the set today as it was that bad. Does anyone know why they even bother with that crap? It looks better with all of their bells and whistles turned off.

As for the lack of inputs, not a problem. We finally made the switch to a AV Receiver with tons of HDMI ports and we just route from there to the TV with a single HDMI cable. The more "features" the TV has the less attractive it is for me now. Heck, we don't even need speakers on the dumb thing.

We are happy with this set after years of failing DLP based sets.

I have one of these coming. Quick question for you. Does it have the EX-link port on the back? Should look like a 1/8" phono port. Thanks ahead of time.
post #40 of 479
I don't have meter, but it's deep black. I adjusted it watching an ESPN segment where Kirk Herbstreet was interviewing AJ McCarron in the Alabama film screening room where there are black leather theater seats. By only lowering the brightness an adjusting the contrast control I got what looks inky blacks and still good shadow detail. I'm only an enthusiast, so it will take an expert with a meter to say for certain, but this is a stunning picture IMO and there are tons of controls to tweak it. More to follow.

Yes it does!
post #42 of 479
I'm going to be buying this today. My Best Buy had like 12 left last night and now half are left today. I'm upgrading from a 37 inch Samsung 720p TV, so this will be quite an upgrade! BestBuy.com now has 13 reviews with a 3.4 rating. It seems most bad reviews are about the no audio out. I have a 5.1 setup hooked to my receiver, so that's not a concern for me. Would like to see more impressions and any recommended calibration settings on here.
post #43 of 479
Thanks so much. Enjoy your TV!
post #44 of 479
I picked one up replacing a 5 year old 55" LCD. Calibrating to my liking is pretty close to the original settings so far.

Movie mode to start (standard and dynamic look poor IMO)
Contrast 90
brightness 47
Sharpness 10
Digital noise filter off
Auto motion plus, custom blur 10 judder 0 (Soap Opera effect was an issue until I turned off the auto motion plus judder.)

I'll be watching for settings posted by the experts but out of the box I'm going with these. The audio EQ needed a lot of adjustment and I'm satisfied with it for tv use after fiddling. It could really use a 3rd hdmi and optical output. Xbox does looks good on the HD component cables so I am able to utilize the hdmi inputs for cable DVR and another device. Lighting is even and the viewing angle is great compared to my old unit. The physical appearance with the thin border and a base that does not attract your eye is perfect for what I wanted. I also like the non glossy matte screen which shows zero reflections in my room. Overall this appears to be a great pickup for me.
post #45 of 479
I'm going to take a look at this set in store later today. I hope it goes OOS before I decide to buy it. LOL.
post #46 of 479
I just bought one of these today, and mounted it on my wall. Looks good so far, but of course it's replacing a 4-5 year old ProScan 40" LCD that I bought at Best Buy for $500.

Thanks to all the input here, I determined that this was a good fit for me.
No audio out - No problem, my Onkyo 7.2 receiver handles all HDMI audio through my 5.1 speakers.
Limited inputs - No problem, again, my Onkyo receiver to the rescue.
Not a smart TV - Don't want it. Almost all TV watching comes from my micro-ATX HTPC system I built, running Windows 8.1 w/ media center.
No 3D - I've got a BENQ 24" active 3D PC monitor that I use for gaming, and it's fun sometimes, but not necessary for my living room.
Price - pretty darn good at $1000
Brand - Samsung, I've only had good experiences with their products. Of course, their slim top-of-the-line models are very nice looking, but also over twice as expensive.

Main pros so far:
-Option to disable over/underscan through HDMI (thank God!)
-Easy to navigate menu
-Able to edit input names

Cons:
Default color settings seem a bit weird. Ill try the ones posted by RobertMahle and see if it's any better.

Again, compared to my previous set, this is a huge improvement for me, and I'm not a A/V expert, but let me know if anybody has any questions they want answered.

They didn't have one on display to look at at my store. The associate said the most similar one to look at would be the 60" Samsung. Planning on going within a couple hours to get it. I think the sale on it ends today?

Yeah, I think so. On the BB website, they advertise "Black Friday Sales" going on Thursday - Saturday. Pretty sure that includes this TV.
post #49 of 479
The soap opera effect is pretty tolerable with the clear mode as well. Standard makes things look just wierd.
post #50 of 479
Can anyone comment on input lag with this set? Like previous posters have said, comparable models have been fine, so I'm hoping it's not an issue. Also, what disc have people been using to calibrate this TV? Thanks.

I actually took delivery of the TV today (purchased it in a Best Buy pre-BF event online,) but haven't had a chance to take it out of the box yet. Thanks to this thread I feel a bit better about the purchase, I was getting a little worried reading a few reviews posted on Bestbuy.com. I also got in on the Best Buy 60" Vizio E Series that went for around $680, but will plan on making a decision between the two sometime before the return period ends.

I used the Windows Media Center calibration tools, and I came up with these settings:

Backlight:12 (default
Contrast: 95 (default is 100)
Brightness: 34
Sharpness: 50 (default)
Color: 47 (default is 50)
Tint G/R - 50/50 (default)

Just bought this TV today. How many hours should I put on it before starting calibration? I have a DVE essentials disc I will be using to eyeball it.

Also wondering if anyone has found what model number to better approximate for Logitech?
post #54 of 479
Just purchased this unit a few hours ago at the local BB and awaiting delivery. It was a hard deal to pass up, not only in terms of price but the offer of free delivery and pickup of our old unit. (It's replacing a 288 lb., 61-inch Toshiba 61H70 HD Ready projection unit we purchased in 2001.) While it will be hard to say goodbye to the Tosh - as it's still a great performing set - but realistically it's well beyond its useful life (no hdmi ports etc.)

Like others have stated, I just want a basic, no-frills model that serves as a monitor. So this unit fits the bill. Not interested in 3D or streaming capabilities as we have another unit (a Panasonic plasma) that already does this. I don't need optical out or other features, because I'm using my 7.2 Harman Kardon AVR to route the cable box, bluray, and yes even my HD DVD player.

Since this is our first experience with a Samsung TV, my main concern is picture quality , so I'm grateful to those who are posting comments on calibration settings etc.

Hey bud, congrats on the new purchase. Hope you love your new purchase. I'm guessing you will. Samsung sets tend to be some of the best. Be sure to post us your thoughts once you get it.

Used these settings, had to adjust some on my receiver for A/V sync. I was out of sync about 120ms which wasn't the case with my old TV

Has anyone hooked this thing up to a console and tested out the input lag? I'm looking to replace my 2004 Samsung DLP which has a lot of input lag over HDMI. I have the last gen consoles and my HTPC going over VGA with a KVM but the xbone and ps4 are HDMI only and so I'm using this issue as an opportunity to upgrade. The UN65EH6000 has great input lag according to http://www.displaylag.com/display-database/#participants-list but I just want to verify that is the case before I purchase. 

 

Thanks!

I was setting this TV up last night. One of my personal things us always to check lag. I'm coming from a Sammy led dlp that had minimal lag. From my eye I couldn't notice any bad lag. I tested NBA 2014 and Battlefield. Both responded immediately to button presses.

Also, does anyone have different settings? Robert Mahle's work pretty good for me. I tried Randomcreek's but the color shifted far into green and I had some shadow detail issues. By the way, my set has a huge cloud in the center just a bit off to the right and bottom. I'm going to see if with time it diminishes a bit, but if not it's gotta go back because it's very noticeable in dark scenes.
