I tossed up a thread, but basically I'm coming from rear projection which I've had for years. But I'm ready for something new and basically I want thr best upgrade I can get, mainly for gaming, in or around 2-3500ish. Course lower the better but I want a very nice upgrade so I'd jump to around 3500 for it. I just don't know what would give me the proper upgrade since my Mitsubishi was little over 4000 in 2011 and has been great, but I'm ready to move on from RP.

Best But, Crutchfield, Fry's, etc. all have it for around $2,299.

Then there are the internet only sellers...Joe's AV and Shop Smart TV for example...they are selling it for around $1,499, with no tax or shipping.

This seems to go to be true.

Have any of you purchased from one of these places? Are they legitimate?

I really don't understand how they can sell so much below everyone else.

Thanks.

Scott,

I got mine at One Call.com I have been doing business with them for 20 years. They are a legitimate dealer and ship the TV with Shock Sensors so the Truck/Shipper cannot abuse the box. I felt so comfortable when the TV showed up with all these stickers on the box! I would not touch those scammers with ridiculous low prices....if there is a problem with your panel they will not help you if it's over 72 hours old...what a ripoff! I did get the 75" panel and from what I have read the 75" has the least problems between all 3 sizes...

Savatage.........Going from RPTV to the XBR 850C will blow your mind over the improvement everywhere!!!!!

We went from a Mits Laservue to a 75" x850c. This TV makes me embarrassed by how much I raved about the Laservue. It was good when it was new, but this TV has a sharp and beautiful picture that puts it to shame.

I thought at one time I had found info on the X850C panel as to whether it is a 8 bit or 10 bit? I can't seem to remember which it is or find the answer to boot! Anyone know for sure?

Hey all. I have a question regarding the picture on my x850c. On real dark scenes or while playing credits, there is 2 patches of clouding. It's minor compared to my older Samsung but to is catching my eye. It's about half way up in the left side and about halfway across the middle on the bottom. Is a small amount of this normal? I really like the TV, but am not sure if it warrants trying for another panel, cause then I am sure I will get one that's worse (maybe). Should a prefect cloud free x850c be expected or is that being too picky? Thanks I appreciate everyone's advice as usual

Gerry, here are my settings as you requested. Easiest way to set them is first go to Action Menu button on the remote then scroll down to Picture Adjustments. Choose Picture Mode = Cinema Pro. Then turn Light Sensor =Off, then drop down to



Advanced Settings. Under the Brightness Category I have Brightness = 44, Contrast =92, Gamma= -1, Black Level = 48, black Adjust = Medium, Adv Contrast Enhancer = Medium.

Now under the Color category, Color= 38, Hue= 0, Color Temp= Neutral, Adv. Color Temp = Facrory, Color Space = sRGB/BT.709, Live Color = Off. Now go to the Clarity Category. Sharpness = 50, Reality Creaion = Manual, Resolution = 70, Mastered in 4K = On, Random noise Reduction/ Digital Noise Reduction = off.



Now drop down to the Motion Category. Motionflow = Standard, Smoothness and Clearness are pre-set, CineMotion = Low. These settings are great for me but to each his own. Color saturation and brightness levels are always a personal preference so you may like some different settings but these will give you a starting point. Good luck with your new set. The 75x850c is a great TV!!





Cheers,.



Larry

Hey I am going to give these settings a try, but reality creation of 70! Holy cow that's gonna cause some serious noise won't it?

That was one of my concerns as well, along w/Vivid which I don't care for in my viewing environment.

But everyone sits at different distances from the TV in different lighting/viewing environments with different color preferences, and watches different content from different feeds, with different eyesight, so one person's "Perfect" is another person's "Ewww!"

I suggest you look at all of the five or six different sets off calibration options in the X850C Calibration spreadsheet in my sig and see which one comes closest to your "video nirvana."

it's a 10 bit for sure,part of the reason it will do pseudo HDR reproduction

Reality Creation is set to MANUAL. Resolution is set to 70 but I actually I can see no difference between 50 and 100.

Hey guys,

I'm considering buying a 65X850C. However, I have some questions for you X850C owners.

What's the best way to stream a 4K video to the TV through WiFi from a PC? What bit rates can the Android TV handle assuming the bandwidth is not a problem? How good will the IQ of the video stream be when compared to being played using a USB flash disk?

Best regards,

The best way to see what reality creation is doing is pause a video on a well lit scene with plenty of details in focus. Then go into the settings, and set reality creation to manual with the resolution set to 100 (Max). Then toggle reality creation from Manual (Max) to Off. Watch what happens to the contrast/edges around fine details. In photography, we call this effect adding micro contrast. It's a sharpening technique that is more subtle but natural looking than normal edge enhancement sharpening techniques.

Unless you've lost your glasses or sit 20' from the screen, you will want a moderate setting. Anything high will exaggerate any noise, film grain, or compression artifacts unnaturally. With Blurays, i prefer under 30 since more than that will start to exaggerate film grain to the point where it's distracting in some scenes.

Also, I wouldn't combine this with regular sharpening (which is off at 50) or any of the noise reduction settings as those do the exact opposite (blur fine details and reduce micro contrast).

Virtualrain, what do you mean by the sharpening being "off at 50". I think this is the first time I heard anyone say this? That would seem pretty stupid on a 0-100 scale.....

You must be sat a good distance from the TV not to see this or maybe need to get you eyes checked

Most people see grain artefacts appear and get quite bad above the 40 mark, it looks horrific at 70 and above .I have mine set to 20 on my HTPC, off on my PS4 and off on TV.

I first heard that from one of the professional review sites (rtings?) and confirmed it with my own testing... It seemed 50 is neither sharpening nor blurring and over 50 is sharpening while under 50 is blurring. What are you seeing?

I've got a 4k question that pertains to the 850c.


As many of us now know, VUDU streaming service is currently selling and renting out 4k movies, although right now this can only be done through the new Roku 4. I would imagine that eventually 4k VUDU titles will be available for the 850c through Android, and with that I wonder how good the 4k quality will be. Will there be limitations on the 850c that won't allow for the best 4k picture from VUDU? Certainly true HDR quality will be one of them, but I wonder what other limitations there might be.


I also wonder just how fast streaming service will have to be to get 4k with VUDU, and how good the picture quality will be. VUDU claims to have a superior compression technique, and I know that watching HDX (1080p) samples of movies at 32 mbps gives me a picture that I believe really is 1080p, but there isn't yet a way to know what their steamed 4k will look like on the 850c. And I'm concerned with how much buffering there might be before and during a 4k movie.


Right now their rental prices are too high to be attractive to me, but I think the purchase price of 4k movies is in line with what they'll be in 2016. And if the quality is there, why pay as much as $300 USD for a 4k Blu-ray player? One of the biggest downsides to building a 4k VUDU library, though, is the nagging worry that the service might not last forever. The idea that a person might buy 100 4k titles, with an investment of around $3,000, only to lose it all if the service goes belly-up, is not attractive. That, added to the fact that a 4k disc would have a superior transfer rate, would seem to make 4k Blu-ray a solid option to steaming.


Any opinions and comments on this, or VUDU and Roku in general, would be much appreciated.

the only things that effect lag are motion and other processing, brightness, colour, backlight etc will have zero effect. Sharpess wont but reality creation will as will anything that's dynamic. Basically all the standard picture controls will be fine to tweak.

I'll have to take another look at that with a cal disc when I get a chance. To be honest I didn't pay much attention the first time as it appeared everyone indicated that 50 was the optimal setting... I also need to take another look at this reality creation as it pertains to watching compressed Dish Satellite programming!

do you have a 65"? Do you have side blooming with these settings?

75" 850C Question

Hi All, so I've had the 75" for a month or two with no problems. The other day however, the tv suddenly became unresponsive and very slow in the menu navigation using remote. I tried then operating tv via buttons on back of the tv. Same problem there. Could barely get to the menus. Took like 20 second per selection. Tried turning off the tv. That didn't help. Finally I got to the menu to update tv. That seemed to fix the problem for a while, now it is right back to where I started. Any ideas what would be causing this extremely slow navigation? Thanks

The big deal is the 'wider' range of beautiful hues I've never seen before. It can be turned off or adjusted to taste.

Try holding the TV Power button on the remote (or the TV?) for about 10 seconds or so until TV reboots. Perhaps you may need to unplug the TV for a few minutes before plugging it back in, if the above is stubborn.

There is also a reset option in the Android settings if that doesn't work.

I was just looking around tonight and realized there is an AdBlock Plus app for android devices. Not the AdBlock Browser, but a proper ABP App.

Has anyone tried installing it on a Sony TV? It takes some proxy configuration, but it might make Crackle and YouTube more tolerable.

Edit: Currently it breaks Crackle so videos won't play and YouTube apps aren't blocked. Don't know if there are any other reasons to use it with an Android TV.
