My 82” was delivered yesterday and I got it all setup last night. The setup was easy, and I got it talking to my Apple TV, Blu Ray player and receiver no problem. My wife is very happy with being able to control everything from the TV remote, which considering it is 4 devices (including the TV) from 4 different brands is pretty cool. We have been without a universal remote since our harmony died a while back.
We watched Ready Player One in 4K HDR from the Apple TV, which looked great, if perhaps I tiny bit washed out in places. Also looked at Star Trek Beyond from my existing iTunes library as it was upgraded to 4K HDR, and it looked stunning - contrasty and detailed. I was only going to demo it, but ended up staring at the screen with a big grin on my face.
I still need to test with upscaled content, and of course 4K Blu Ray, and I haven’t done any sort of calibration yet, but so far I’m really happy. My only complaint is that I get reflections from the downlights in the room, from my normal viewing position. The screen is so big it is hard to avoid the reflection, but I can’t really blame Samsung for that. It is fine for full screen TV viewing, but is right on the top black bar on movies. I normally turn the lights off for movies though.
