Brightness pops have not been fixed! My 51E8000 has very noticeable brightness fluctuations, particularly when watching hockey. Very dissaponted and if it continues and there is no firmware upgrade to fix it then i am getting my money back and buying the new GT50.
I really do want to like this new set but right now...i dont.

Still no pictures of installed e8000/e7000...Pffff....Is it so difficult to take pictures, just to see the tv in real conditions and in action?
Please, a little effort. Thanks!

I was watching some hockey the other day, looking For brightness fluctuations, i noticed what i thought were cam flashes, but i also noticed some other little blips i will call them in the brightness that i thought might be tied to the pixel shifter being on, since i could not run in screen fit on that channel.So i thought pixel shift was causing the other little pops in brightness, Not sure though.
Also my 7000 has what is called "Motion Lighting" that is in the advanced pic menu, Mine has been "grayed out" since turning the eco stuff off, But it did do something with the brightness.

I currently own a D7000 and I'm very unhappy with it due to the brightness pops in dark scenes which drive me nuts. I'ts so bad I'm considering trading in the set to Best Buy for 50% just to get rid of it. I shouldn't even consider another Samsung, but I figured I'd read a bit in here about the new E7000 just to see if things got better. I'm amazed to see the E models also have brightness pops, according to several users here already. That seals it for me right here - I guess it's gonna be a Panasonic then if I do this because I'm gonna lose money trading in this set just to get an E7000 with the same issue.

Yes those Bright Pops do look like the Camera making Sudden changes in exposure but they are not there on other TV's with the same material. I am a big fan of 3D and seen rather a lot on the D6900 here in the UK but i have Never seen one Bright Scene pop with 3D to date. Its an odd one no doubt and i think would be very simple to fix, Trouble is getting a decent Sammy engineer to actually see and log the issue on a set then report back to Samsung.

I recently renovated our entire family room and have this baby up on the wall. She is a beauty and far the best picture I have seen out of any plasma display. Sports look simply amazing, even soccer!
The only problem I am having is that every hour or so the unit shuts off and on by itself.All of my Eco /energy saving options are off so hopefully it is just a firmware issue and an update will resolve this problem. I will try this tonight and report back. Anyone else having this issue?

I guesse i could have been clearer, What i thought i saw was the TV cameras filming the game picking up people in the crowd using there camera flashes. And of course what i thought was the pixel shift being on. I never noticed these thing on my C7000, And i dont think i'm seeing what are the brightness pops. so not really sure. What i do know is.i was early in buying my C7000 and it was alittle funky in the begining intill firmware fixes started rolling in. then was great till it died.
