Previous model was the KS9800 which was an amazing TV but time for the newest and greatest.
Thanks to all the owners here that provided the feedback. AND WHY THIS THREAD HAS NO TALKING ABOUT PRICES. JUST bs.... If there's a great deal somewhere then share it, we're hear to help each other out. With that said. If you can find a way to buy it with an employee discount or college edu discount, it's well worth the effort.
Talk to you guys soon.
I posted that I purchased my TV on 5/16 and here it is 6/25 and it's finally connected and making magic. The shipping company Samsung uses is slow as slow can be. Worked out ok as I was at the US Open enjoying the chilly weather.
Initially I was very scared as my brother took delivery of the TV and the outside packaging of the TV was torn in numerous places. BUT, thankfully my brother said nothing appeared to have punctured through into the box itself. And worst of all the TV was upside down in the truck. So my brother took pics and the delivery guy took note and documented the areas of the box that was damaged in the event the TV was damaged inside.
So now I'm home and ready to setup AND FINGERS CROSSED that the TV is ok...
First. this TV, 82" and all, is a beast, and by beast I mean BIG and Heavy. I had my two brothers, a friend and myself and it was a small challenge. So either have it professionally installed or trusted helpers. Needless to say it was setup without a hitch. No damage to the screen and so far so good.
2nd, this is my 2nd Samsung Flagship TV and I have to say that I was disappointed in the cheap plastic remote, (I like the NETFLIX, PRIME, HULU buttons at my fingertips). The one connect box is in deed much, much bigger than previous models. The packaging of the one connect is cheap, previous models had a nice leather box with a magnetic flap, the new one was a card board box, cheap and disposable.
3rd, and most importantly, the picture... AND yes, it turned on and it was breath taking. The picture and size were amazing and incredible. I did not make any changes, and going on one week, still no picture adjustments and I'm still amazed by the picture. I particularly like the ambient mode which adjusts to the lighting in the room. And so far so good. Every time I sit down I am amazed at how beautiful the picture is.
I have the TV downstairs in my theater room and lighting is not an issue, so reflection is not an issue. Ceiling lights and wall lights are non existent on the screen. All I see is the picture of my movie, show or video game.
Here's where I struggled as not many owners really posted how they connected their TV.
I have a Yamaha Receiver, RX3060, and had previously connected everything through the receiver and then to the TV. Sure people commented on what you would lose, Audio vs Video, and honestly I was going to connect the xbox-one-x directly to the TV, but in my rush to see the TV on and working, I just the same setup and plugged the receiver directly into the TV. And you know what, it all works flawlessly. The TV no longer triggers the receiver to switch to the TV audio, (ARC). The xbox turns on the receiver and the TV and it all works the way it should. If I want to watch HULU, I press the HULU button on the TV remote and the ARC kicks in and the receiver switches, and if I exit HULU then the receiver switches back to the xbox where the cable is connected and my cable TV starts working as it should. So far I've been very impressed and happy.
The VRR option that this TV offers for gaming, not sure that it's needed as all my gaming runs smoothly and no hesitation at all but maybe my receiver passes the video from the xbox to the TV and the TV handles it and that's why I don't see an issue.
POINT BEING, this tv is awesome. So far no complaints and I'm ready to host Sunday afternoon golf, Sunday night baseball, and a RomCom to cap off the week.
If anyone has any questions feel free to ask.
