As far as a "flat" 1080p alternative Samsung display it may be your only option without making the leap to 4K. If you want to stay with the Samsung brand?

Just got a call from the shipping company... they only deliver Tuesday-Friday and it's too late for today. Looks like I won't have my 7150 until next Tuesday. I'm a huge fan of Abt but I'm not too impressed with the shipping service- 11 days from the time it left their facility until it's going to arrive.

I haven't even received a call yet. Also not impressed with the shipping company. Abt shipped it really quickly though.

My UN46H7150 got delivered this morning, and it is as fabulous as the reviews suggest. What is not mentioned in the reviews is that the manual is pretty superficial, to the point that assembly of the base and the display panel is not even described, although it is pretty easy accomplished once one manages to find the right small bag with the screws and two plastic pieces.
The connections on the back of the unit are clearly labeled there, but just try to figure them out from the eye chart of a drawing near the end of the manual. There is an "e-manual" that one can eventually study (there is even one button on the large remote to bring up the e-manual up on the screen); but one is immediately overwhelmed by a setup screen the moment one turns on the set. One is supposed to choose the correct settings for the display, get the wireless internet connection going, etc. I almost yelled 'Hey, give me a chance to look at the manual first!'.
The setup should be no problem though if you have previously gone through the drill already with another TV.

There are two remotes in the box just like with last year's model; the small remote is indeed an improvement over previous efforts. The remote for my Samsung blue ray player, as well as the settop box remote that had been set to Samsung mode, both worked without a hitch with the new Samsung 7150. No reprogramming needed in my case.

Did I already say the picture was gorgeous? I especially liked the upscaling quality; standard DVDs fill the HD frame very nicely indeed. No pixellation.

I had one unanticipated problem. After my previous 1920x1080 set went bad, I had substituted a 720p loaner set. When I first watched a HD channel on the new 7150, the picture filled the frame but did not look as crispy as I had remembered from my dead set. It turned out I needed to reset my TV settop box, which was still sending out content in 720p format!

I recalibrated the 7150 according to the recipe in the 'calibration and picture setting review' at the lcdtvbuyingguide.com website, and the picture did improve from very nice to incredibly nice. It is still amusing to me that Samsung touts all the new features and settings, and just like last year the reviewer recommends to simply turn all that stuff off.

The 3D function works, but the experience with Avatar is not anyway near that experienced in the IMAX theater. But still pretty OK.

And yes, you can call in an amazing amount of sites from the internet, and the connection to Amazon's streaming service also worked well. Before I could access any internet sites, the H7150 informed me that there was already an update for the electronics, which it proceeded to downloaded and install automatically.

And for the record, this new Samsung 46" LED TV is quite a bit better and $700 cheaper than the Samsung 40" LCD TV which I bought 4 years ago (and also loved).

Mines arrived. Ordered off Amazon. Couple of initial pictures. I did not take the bezel tape off yet.

Current issues:
1. TV speaker sound varies on different movie files while using Mezzmo. Some files the audio would be very low and others the volume would sound normal. I did not have this problem on my UN55D8000.
2. Unable to turn menu sound off (the tone when moving through menus). (solved: system> general> sound feedback > off)
3. When using Mezzmo, no resume feature when replaying the same video file.
4. Plastic tape on the bottom of the tv looks to be inside of the bezel (unlike in other areas where it easily is removed). Will probably cut it out later on.
5. Unable to change folder view type (standard 2 rows for video files, photos and videos are in 4 rows makes for easier scanning through files).
6. When using Mezzmo. "Sort by> folder" buggy. Some files would not be in alphabetical order. It's like it organized the files twice but no repetition (a-z,a-z: instead of a-z).
7. TV sub-woofer is horrible. Unable to disable it. Only solution is to use an external audio source, which I'll connect later on. (TV sounds better after i changed "sound> speaker settings>wall mount)
8. Buzzing sound when playing movies in 3D. Might be the processor.

The TV does play embedded subtitles by default on mkv files.

Trusting a review from this site is like learning Kung Fu from Keanu Reeves, neither are advisable.
The review was posted a day after CES using only stock images from the show floor. Most manufacturers would have let Sound and Vision or CNET review before LCDBG .

the split screen is nice so I can watch TV on the left side and look at websites on the right side but it hard to use with a remote so I will need to spend 100.00 for the samsung keyboard that will work. trying to watch Netflix is slow to start with the screen going black for 2 minutes for a tv with quad core processor so use my Roku 3. there are no controls on this tv and nothing to tell you if the tv is on or off so do not pause a TV show on a black screen.

For what it's worth, I was able to pair a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard with my f8000. You may want to try a less expensive alternative before you shell out for the more expensive one. Unless that's what you prefer...

Perhaps there is an app for this on android/apple. I used my smartphone to control my Samsung bd player.

I would not trust those either.

Amazon does have a few "verified purchase" reviews up and I am sure in a few days there will be plenty of legit reviews from people who actually own the set.

I am still holding off a few more weeks to really see pros/cons comparing the F7100, F8000 and H7150 before I pull the trigger.

I got mine set last wed and I liked a lot. I bought the F8000 last year and I returned because I didn't like the picture quality. I am very pick about PQ and so far I like everything about this TV.

The only thing is that I need a better calibration setting. Does anyone have a setting yet?

What didn't you like about the f8000? I have one with a poor quality screen that is going back and I'm choosing between the 7150 and the Sharp UQ.

I had 3 defect sets and the PQ looked not as good as I hope it would be. I tried a million settings but it didn't improve much.

For a lower price PQ of the H7150 impressed me. Also it does look better on the wall.

Costco now has the H7150, but it's called the UN65H7100AF. I assume it's the same tv since Costco always has a diffrent model number from other box stores....

The price is $2279

My UN55H7150 finally arrived. The picture is incredible! (Disclaimer: I'm upgrading from a 10 year old Samsung DLP so probably not the best judge of PQ...) Lots of ambient light in this room so once it gets dark tonight I'll check for flashlighting/clouding and snap some pictures.

As someone else reported the firmware updated immediately upon plugging it and connecting it to ethernet.

No keyboard was included with the H7150. It did include 2 pair of 3D glasses.

Ok thanks. Interesting that the one from Costco comes with the keyboard. A little extra bonus I guess smile.gif

TV got delivered this morning, it looks much better than the UN55F6350 it replaces. PQ is decent out of the box, side viewing is much much better. I however notice some weird artifacts around text when I use the Apple TV, also some 1080p contents AirPlayed with Plex look worse than it did on the 6350. I am pretty sure there are settings I need to adjust and features I need to turn off. I'll start an official thread if there isn't one already.
