If I got a size larger than 55" I think it would look out of scale for the room size. Also, it is replacing a 20" RCA ColorTrak crt TV so it actually looks giant to me. smile.gif

Oh it's 55. I thought it was smaller. Good deal then.

I just picked up a 46" from Best Buy and it's just the right size for my needs. I'm about 7' away from it and a nice fit in my bedroom. I didn't notice clouding or any stuck pixels, but there is minor flash lighting from the corners. Don't notice it during regular programming.

I'm using the settings from the linked review on this thread. They're okay but could be better. I might head over to the F7100 thread and try to find something there.

Haven't tried out the APs or other smart tv functions...not really interested in those. Maybe later.

So, I'm pretty happy with this tv so far and I'm just going to sit back and enjoy it:)

Happy Easter to all!

So you guys would definitely recommend this tv? I'm looking at grabbing the 65" one in the next few days or so. It's going to replace a un46b6000 that I have had for quite some time. It's a great TV and will be moved to the bedroom but it's too small in the living room.

Would you recommend this over other competitive priced TVs? I have always had Samsung TV's and had great luck, except for my LCD that the resistors went on out of warranty (which thankfully a class action fixed that one).

Also how is this TV in a bright room?

I haven't had a chance to see it in person, but will today since it shows in stock at BB.

Then comes the last part where to purchase from, amazon charges tax here so I'm better off going to BB I guess. Other option is Crutchfield with free shipping and no tax, although to return for any reason would cost me. Decisions.

the tv has a light sensor so the tv will get brighter in a bright room and use more power. the TV will uses 55 to 70 watts power so keep the light low to save power.

If someone doesn't let you know before I get mine, I will give you my observations.

the tv as a 55 ms response time and my 24" 1080p computer monitor has a 2 ms response time so call of duty ghost was kind of slow to respond to the controls but played just fine.
there is a hdmi gaming port that I have not used yet.

Are we talking the same thing response time and input lag are different. Response time generally refers to the time a screen takes to make the transition from gray to gray or pixels to switch on or off. I had a monitor from view sonic years ago that claimed a 1 ms response time and input lag was horrible.

Where did you get 55 ms from? That's seems entirely inaccurate. A LED LCD HDTV with a response time above 10 ms would be completely unplayable and unacceptable for even sports. 55ms would mean that there would be a ghost trail approximately 3 car lengths long during a Nascar race. You couldn't even pick out cars individually.

I doubt that there has been anyour TV's manufactured in the past four years with that high of a response time. The Sharp Aquos lineup was once touted at having a response time of 4ms. You're thinking that Samsung having that high of a response time is very far from the truth.

Also, you cannot compare computer monitors and TV's easily. They have similarities but are inherently different.

Undoubtedly he is talking input lag. That's why the comparison is null.

I thought the lcdbuyerguide calibration settings were horrrrrible.  I feel they copied/pasted from some other tv because some of the settings/items weren't there or in different spots and when I did set 98% of them, the picture was crap.

 

Set it to Standard with some tweaks, and picture looks great, FYI.

I have my new UN55H7150 in a room with lots of natural light, replacing an old DLP that was to the point where it was barely viewable during the day. Brightness is excellent on the 7150. I don't have to even partially close the blinds anymore.

Pirates settings are legit on most Samsung displays. If anything let them be a good starting point and tweak from there. I have never been stoked on lcdbuyersguides settings, David K. And Ty P over at CNET have decent settings as well.

Been wanting to see one in person,but local BB hasn't set one up yet. I will swung by Nebraska furniture mart tomorrow. I had an F7100 and have an F6800 and liked the ultra clear panel of the F7100,but motion, off angle viewing, uniformity were superior on my F6800. I am hoping the H7150 will offer superior performance to both with Ultra clear panel and micro dimming pro.

Amazon reviews are so so. A few have mentioned uniformity/flashlighting.

Which Nebraska Furniture Mart do you live by? (Dallas, Omaha, or KC)

Thanks for the HHgregg mention.  I couldn't get amazon to honor the price match and it took me multiple asks/convos to get them to confirm they don't offer price match on ANY sales regardless of time (their policy says 24 hour and under sales, so I thought weekend would be OK.  They said ANY sale that has an expiration, they don't honor.)  I just submitted my credit card price protection claim though after being able to capture the deal so hopefully they'll process that for me!  That'll pay for the Peerless mount I purchased for this thing!

Could owners please post their experience with off-axis viewing on the h7150? At this point I'm considering a 60" h8500 or a 65" h7150 for my living room, with the off-axis viewing of the h7150 being one of the deciding factors.

I think the off axis viewing is fine/great.  I have a computer desk to the side of my tv that I use sometimes and I was concerned because I had a great Toshiba LCD (non LED) from 6 years ago and was worried the LED in general would be worse viewing angle.  I had a small 26in Panasonic (cheap) in the bedroom and the viewing angle on it was horrible.  Anyways, when I went to Best Buy to peruse, the Samsungs all had much better viewing angles than the others I saw.  I was concerned about the darkening of the picture on off angles.  I have not experienced that on my H7150, I would rate the off axis viewing as great.

How are the black levels on this TV? I am having a hard time choosing between this TV and LG 60LB7100 / Vizio M602i. Can't decide which to get.

So I picked this tv up today and just got my old sony off the wall and this one set up. All I can say is this is a huge upgrade just out of the box. I still need some time with it, but so far black levels are really good, no noticeable clouding or motion blur. I still need to calibrate, but so far it was well worth the money. BTW I have the 65".

Life is hard, be harder.

I didn't say MOST. "A few". Usually when dealing with Customer Reviews on any site, they're not as OCD as we are so they don't report issues or don't realize they have an issue. I read at least two CR that mentioned flashlighting/uniformity. Maybe they didn't engage micro dimming? Maybe the H7150 has flashlighting? There's no real review yet so I have to assume that a "few" have flashlighting and the others just don't know what it is to report it.
