Different Firmware Versions
Hey guys. Just wanted to thank everyone that has posted and shared information on this board. It helped me make my first LCD HD/4kTV purchase decision and "enabled" me to get the JS9000 instead of the JS8500. This is coming from a multiple Plasma owner for 8+ years (Pioneer + Panny). I'm quite happy with this LCD's image quality, even though in a fully dark room I can see some clouding from the backlight. I have not professionally calibrated but have used settings found on this board and some review sites. I tend to do my own tweaks to picture settings, multiple times at the start of my movie viewing session, to the annoyance from my GF lol. i guess that OCD part of me comes out to fine tune for best quality.
I have an important question regarding firmware updates for the JS9000. There appears to be several versions of the firmware for this set and I am curious if the firmware for one region can be used for another (ex. a US firmware for a set bought in UK).
Looking at some of the official Samsung support sites:
Upgrade File(USB type) (Firmware) ver.1220.8 - All OS (MULTI LANGUAGE, 1524.85 MB) ? Aug 19, 2015
ALL OS, 1648.42 MB, EXE, MULTI LANGUAGE
VERSION : 1217.0
25 AUG, 2015
Samsung TH (where I purchased and using my set):
ALL OS, 1588.19 MB, EXE, MULTI LANGUAGE
เวอร์ชั่น : 1320.4
As you can see from the above, my locale has the highest version number, although there have been more recent firmware released to other regions. I hate how Samsung doesn't include any change logs to each firmware.
Does anyone have experience testing out the different region firmwares?
