I purchased my Q7F on 4/21. Admittedly I did go back and forth on wether to return it or not. There weren't much in reviews and most said it was an overpriced 2016KS model. I had never bought a really brand new model before, usually buying in the marked down T'giving sales. I think I subconsciously let my return window run out as the last day was pouring down rain and I have an open pu truck and therefor couldn't return it. LOL
I'm glad I kept it. Watching some of my streamimg movies that are 1080P but using the hdr+ setting on the tv makes the picture fantastic. Couldn't be more clear. It's practcally worth paying the cheaper purchase/rental prices and letting the tv upgrade it. I was able to set up my equip w/ the nice factory remote and everything turns on and off, vol and menus work well. Like others mentioned I kind of missed the pointer remote from my hu7250.
I didn't hook up the k8500 w/ the tv remote because I don't use it much and didn't want it to be on for no reason. I do have some problems with that setup though. I play the k8500 with 1 hdmi to the tv and 1 hdmi sound to my denon because of playing atmos sound. Every time I pause the player the sound reverts back to arc which actually has no sound and I have to press my avr remote back to the bluray setting. Usually have to fight that when starting up the disc also, keeps wanting to switch to arc.
The streaming on this tv is almost instant when playing apps like Netflix. From the home screen you can scroll over to it and even see some recent things you've played, click on it and it opens right up. My hu7250 takes for ever to load apps.
While the tv power cable and box each have a power cord, I have an electrical box behind my wall hung tv which I'd recommend every one do for wall hungs anyway. After all the money on equip, even if you do need to pay an electrician it's a nicer looking setup. To be honest mine is thru the wall as my equip is in the room behind the tv.
I don't do calibrations, so mine is pretty much how the factory sets it. I may get it done after giving some good break in time. There's a nice info screen that gives the tv's ser number etc but I wish it would give the hours too. I don't like to get into service menus due to fear of screwing something up to get that info.
Previous poster said he can't wait to see what this tv does w/ 720P and 1080i tv inputs. You should understand that the poorer the input the less it can output. If that's your main interest you may be better off with a cheaper model tv. The 1080i of my fios cable box is probably pretty equal between my 2 tv's. The screen size would be a big difference too. 4K improvements show up better when sitting closer to the screen. 65” tv seating is suggested at 6' – 8'.
