I have been in touch w/ Samsung mutliple times on the phone and chat line...so they have my info and documentation to my stuttering issue...and as everyone knows...Samsung Engineers are working on the stuttering issue.....
To anyone that is on the fence on whether to purchase this set.......DO!!! All LCD's are going to have some imperfections or quirks to it...even the Plasmas have issues......I have the 5yr warranty on this set so WHEN the fix comes.....whether it be via a FW upgrade or a hardware upgrade..I'm covered....the PQ w/ this set is amazing......had a friend that picked up the Sony XBR series...came over to see the Samsung....was braggin that his PQ was better..blah, blah, blah........and later found out he returned his XBR to get a 5271! LOL!!
You must not watch much Football if you have not seen TBE especially when AMP = MED or HI.
I also have the 1013.1 LN-T5271..
For people stating, just update the FW..
BE CAREFUL WITH THIS STATEMENT....
This is VERY EASY to say when you have the 2xxx FRC / FW and I totally agree w/ this statement to update the FW when having this set..
I WOULD NOT update the FW to 1013.1 if I had the chance as there is more stutter from what other 1xxx owners have attested to.
I can not honestly confirm this as I got a 1013.1 straight from CC in the PB (NOV build).
There are MANY users that have the 1xxx that have not updated their sets as others having the 1xxx cards have reported stutter.
So in recap, if you get the 2xxx based set, by all means upgrade the FW if TBE bothers you.
I did on the lemon 2002 model I had to 2004 and it helped w/ TBE, ie. no TBE when AMP=OFF / LOW and mild on MED..
