Finally, after over a week and a half from date of delivery we got it up on the stand and have been able to watch some limited content. For the first week and a half we had it sitting on the floor back in a corner just running the slides 24/7 so she should be broken in pretty good.
One of the things I notice probably more than anything else compared to our old Sammy plasma is the heat generation is almost non existent. Our old one would warm the room a couple of degrees higher than any other room in the house.
No annoying buzz like many people with other models complain about just a slight one and one has to put their ear up to the set to hear it. Our old Sammy was the same way, but to elaborate just a little during the first year of ownership our old Sammy was quiet then Samsung had to replace the panel and a couple of boards due to a sparkling issue that was present when turned on then went away after it warmed up good. The issue was caused by voltages being off on some of the boards. Needless to say once it was put back together we had a buzzer. What we found was that the many ribbon cables that feed from the boards and attach to the sides of the panel were vibrating against the metal back. Another visit from the tech and some thin felt strips attached the inside of the back resolved it and everything was back to normal and it has run many, many hours since then. I would literally hate to see how many hours it has on it, but I digress.
Size is huge coming from a 50".
Pentile screen is a non issue for us.
Reflective screen is a non issue also as our old one was no different.
Picture quality is great but a little soft, seemed like our old one some details were crisper, not a deal breaker by any means and I have not been able to play with many of the adjustments yet.
Hit the Xbox one and fired up destiny and it looked awesome. Much stronger colors than what I am used to so I might need to dial it back a little bit.
Will post back more as time goes on.
We are in no means disappointed with the purchase so far.
