Is it also available via the TV update, or only download-to-USB? Anyone update & test yet?
The online update on TV never seems to find updates for me. The same was the case today, so I did it via USB.

Looking like just a minor update.

Over the years, that has been my experience as well.

I thought it looked great also! Wish it was in HDR for me, but still impressed. I think the upscaling is amazing on this set, though I have yet to watch any old dvd's

I could not agree more. It was amazing. The most impressive scenes were those with the dark sky and fireworks.

Yes, looked great on my 82" - streamed from Comcast XFinity box. Those saps that spent upwards of $2500 for seats at the game and paid silly food prices should have just come to my house - home made buffalo wings, meatball subs on Hawaiian rolls, fresh brownies, etc. I could have charged much less for good field level seats!!!

How did you get 4K from a cable box? And why would I eat a chicken's wing?

I don't know about Comcast but Fios broadcasted the game in 4k on a special channel. IT looked really really good.

I prefer buffalo wings, chicken wings are too small.

If you have a 4K box you can just say 4K into the remote's microphone. It will take you to a 4K dashboard and there you can select the special channel 4K material will be on.

That's making it all about money. Watching the Masters on this TV is one (good) thing, being there quite another.

For the price of two Super Bowl tickets, travel and lodging arrangements, food, etc, I would say getting a pricey TV and being able to enjoy it for far longer than a weekend, more than makes up for not being there.

We only have a 65" but it was fantastic to view in 4K UHD.

Again all about money (and a hint of envy) which does not even matter when you can do both. Ask me how i know.

Well I guess that guy they showed taking the most expensive nap at the Super Bowl had money to burn. LOL

Envy not. Just a little more cautious with my spending, and keeping spouse happy.

Hello, long time lurker here.

I just wanted to come here and say updated my 75" Q900RB and the 1351.3 update to my eyes seems to have improved upscaling of some of the lower resolution sources that I watch.
I have everything on default Movie mode minus Auto Motion Plus and I've been seeing way cleaner visuals in faces and with clothing watching Netflix and Hulu sources.

I put in my 1080p Blu-Ray of The Devil Wears Prada which is notoriously not a very clear transfer, and watching it after the update made it appear much sharper and detailed.

Don't know if it's just me, but thought I'd share!

I agree, but if I was making 1 million a year I would go to the Bowl.....

Does anyone have a good email address with Samsung where we can make the request that the internal apps be updated to 8K on the 2019 sets?

I'm just back from a vacation and I was surprised to see how much the blacks are deeper with this update too (watched 47 meters down uncaged).
I'll test Netflix to see if they totally fixed the dimming zones recurrent and distracting problem but there was none in that movie.
