what resolution /settings are you using?


I have a GS7600 video card - I've connected either RGB or HDMI and I'm not happy with the font sizing - maybe i'm too old, but at 1920x1080 the colors are great, but the fonts are too hard to see - ihave to increase magnification to 125 or 150, but then the fonts sometimes overlap one another. If i go with a lower screen resolution, the objects are too close to the screen. Is it time for a new graphics card or is there something better that i can do?

When I watch TV with a fixed background there are vertical lines going bottom to top, when I turn off my cable box and have a black screen it is very noticable. Anyone else have this problem ?. Other than this the TV is great.

What stand did you pair with this unit?


What dvd/blueray player did you pair?


What receiver did you pair with it?


What are your movie settings?


anything else you want to discuss.

1. Stand is Slam Brands Ariel Stand. Not the sexiest stand, but height, sturdiness, and shelf room are good for what I need.


2. Sony Playstation 3


3. Stone-Age RCA HTIB whose sound still competes with many high-end set ups today.


4. I watch all movies on Standard mode....movie mode is way too dark. All of my settings are defaulted expect for LED at Medium and Flesh Tone +5.

sammy 67" no good for gaming?

when i play call of duty 4 and i am running or turn around real fast i see motion artifacts,kind of like little rainbows,motion blur etc.

anyone seen this?

I've played old games (3DO, SNES, etc) and they look great on it. I can see rainbows only on some SD video sequences, such as the intro video on my basketball game where I can see rainbows on the basketball net. I have never see rainbows during actual play sequences, and the only motion artifacts I've seen are those that are from the game itself, with the size of the screen and the advanced display technology making those issues more obvious. I firmly believe that most problems with these new sets is usually the source, not the TV.

Can you see these things from regular viewing distance, or only when you are as close as your were when you took the pics?

I've found a local deal on a brand new HL61A650 (same TV but with a standard DLP bulb) and they're even throwing in a spare bulb (because I went in shopping for the 750).


If I take the cost of a new bulb out of the equation, is the LED model still worth the extra money? Put differently, is the picture quality substantially better in the 750? Is there some other technical difference that would make me prefer the 750?

IMO bulbs aren't worth anything, cost about $100 online.


Unless you're getting a KILLER deal, I'd get the better TV. Especially if you want the size. Read the other thread for the specific reasons. Quoted them for you here.

Why should I get a 750 LED series over the 650 bulb series?


* The 750 comes in bigger sizes, 61" and 67".

* The 750 has an LED light source that should last the life of the set. No bulbs to replace.

* The 750 uses the CinemaPure Color Engine that creates brilliant, realistic images and displays color that’s 40% brighter than traditional HDTVs. (Note that most sources don't take advantage of this extra color space. Some Camcorders do support it.)

* Nearly instant startup times, with instant brightness no need for the bulb or ballast to warm up.

* No spinning color wheel, so quieter TV (color wheels spin fast and can sometimes have a high pitch whine), and less moving parts

* Much, much less chance of seeing rainbows as the LED's cycle much faster than the color wheel.

* "Green" TV. The LED set uses much less power than bulb based sets and has one of the lowest energy consumption of TV's. Note that actual energy usage is less than the max rated watts listed on the TV.



- Why should I get the 650 series over the 750?


* Cheaper.

* Want a smaller size, 56" or below.

I can't be close to the screen(like a few inches) and look at any test patterns for more than a few seconds. It really hurts my eyes. Back a few inches more and I'm fine. My color wheel sets weren't like that, but it really doesn't matter since I'm not going to watch any TV with my face only a few inches from the screen.

I sit 9 feet away from my 67" LEd DLP set. My only complaint(other then the largest size only being 67") is the upper right quandrant which is slightly out of foucus. Fortunately it's not noticeable with normal viewing unless there is some very small lettering.

I just know that post calibration, the picture is just superb from my set.

Got my Sammy HL67A750 last week in anticipation of the upcoming football season. Bought it from HH Gregg in Winston-Salem for (get this) $1670 !!! Got the stand and receiver (below) for a total of $2224. That's the best deal I've ever collaborated in my life!


The stand I got for it was the Samsung TR500X3B...much too small. Holds the TV fine and at a good eye level, but really not enough space to hold other equipment. Luckily I already had a black cabinet to put my receiver and other equipment.


Purchased the Home Theater in a box Samsung HT2510. Sound-wise it's pretty good, good subwoofer with it. Has wireless rear speakers which helps me out in someways, but it has given me some problems on keeping it's connectivity to the main system.


I also have the DirectTV HR20-700 and have the EXCELLENT HD package. Have the Season Ticket with DirectTV, so it will be life-size this season.


XBox360 ... Madden 09 looks good on this big Sammy!


The set it replaced was a 2000 Sony KP53XBR. 53" rear projection. Never had one problem with that set, so actually pained me to get rid of it. Sold it to the first person I mentioned it to.


Anxious to see if there are some general settings that people see best. Still playing with the standard and movie modes.

Greetings all - I thought I would post first in this thread to get some feedback from the owners of this set first. From what I have read, everyone seems to be *VERY* happy with this set....


What I have right now is a Hitachi 65SWX20B (65-inch) that I purchased new in late 2003. It's a great set, and still has a really great picture - it's just a HUGE RPTV. I'm currently remodeling my home, and as soon as my paint and new carpet are in I've pretty much decided to upgrade to a new TV as well. I was pretty much settled on the Samsung 58-inch plasma (PN58A550), but after doing some reading on these new LED-based RPTVs from Samsung I thought I'd take a look at this set (the HL67A750). I saw one today at Circuit City, and was just amazed at how much larger the screen seemed than my Hitachi, even though it's only 2 inches and just an optical illusion, LOL.


I don't and won't judge picture quality on a set by the way it looks in the store, only because I know that the same signal feed to whatever set I'm looking at is the same feed going to 40+ TVs, and they often aren't calibrated correctly, they've already been turned on god-knows-how-many hours straight, and the lighting just sucks. I'm glad I went on research when I bought my Hitachi, because I have been so incredibly happy with it.


I watch a fair amount of HD programming via Comcast, mostly sports, I own an XBox 360 and PS3, and watch a ton of movies. Should I go the plasma route? Or am I going to be as impressed as I am so far (or even more so) with this LED-DLP RPTV? I was only considering plasma because of the brightness and clairty of the picture - I wouldn't be hanging/mounting it on a wall, so the space doesn't really concern me much. Considering that I'm transitioning from a 460 pound monster Hitachi, almost anything is going to recover me some space
I'd appreciate your guys' feedback - I referenced it much back in 2003 with my Hitachi.

thanks for your help

I didn't mean it like that. I understand that if you know something has a flaw, then it bothers you, even when you can't see it, because you know it's there, but if you can't see it from a normal viewing distance, the it doesn't seem like a huge deal.

Yes, I noticed this immediately on the HL67A750 I saw in Best Buy last week, but I assumed it was because I was standing only about 4 feet from it, and my eye level was almost at the top of the screen. When I stepped back to around 7 feet, it was less noticeable, since my head couldn't raise or lower enough to change the angle at that distance. I'm surprised you can still notice it at 8 feet when sitting down!


Also, for whatever reason the HL67A750 looked TERRIBLE at Best Buy, compared to the flatpanels on the wall. Very dim and grainy! Lord knows how they managed to screw it up that much. Same video feed. Do they intentionally make some sets look bad? Why?
