And how is the new panel working? Any defects (lightbleed, clouding, banding, color banding, DSE) ? Did you get the original Samsung panel or the 2nd party chinese one
? Thats my biggest concern ... with my case, i phoned Samsung and they directed me to a local repair shop which say (phoned today) that they dont fix "big screens"
and i have 55, they send it directly to the main service which is 300km away, like they did with my local shop warranty claim on js8000, where i was waiting for 23 days to get a refund (DSE on the middle of screen).
Now i am trying to see if i can get the local guy to get to my home and make impression of it, so we can check what my options are (new panel, or KS series) ...i would love for it to just be fixed somehow, as i kinda like this particular problem free panel (minus the strange "blue bleed" as its called when i google it) and i dont trust this new "thin tech" anymore. Colors are great, upscalling is out of this world and 3D is fantastic (watched TMNT2 few days ago), seams almost like it was timed out to have problems exactly at a 1 year mark.
I have Toshiba 32TL838G on my bedroom wall, which is now 7 yo, also 3D edge lit and i was just wandering today, why it never have any problems, panel is perfectly clean with no defects, but upscalling and brightness is so s***ty. Makes me wonder if the problem is specific to curved screen?
Still trying to decide if i should go panel gambling, possible scratches and be without the tv for a month or get used to it - which is kinda hard when you know where it is. My stupid perfect eyes
