Got mine yesterday. So far, it looks good - the only adjustment that I made was to set the picture to movie mode and lower the back light about 3 clicks.
I am having a problem, though. When I try to play a movie off of my hard drive on the network, I can get into the directories, see the titles, but when I try to start the movie, the screen says "loading" and never starts. I've tried several movie files all with different formats (MKV, MP4, AVI, etc) but non of them play. This is a major problem. These files all play fine going thru the Sony streamer attached to my old Sharp 37" in the bedroom.

I moved the hard drive upstairs to the media room and hooked it up the the USB port on the TV. Everything worked just fine - A 3D 1080P copy of Avatar came up and popped into 3D in about 2 seconds - looks awesome. So, it looks like the problem is a compatibility issue between my Router's USB/DLNA port and the Samsung TV. Any ideas anyone?

I was over at Costco this afternoon and they have A Sony BDP-BX510 3D Blueray player for $120.00. I need to get one anyway. This might be the solution to my DLNA problem. Sony products handle the interface well. I'll just use the DVD player to pull in the videos off of the hard drive attached to the router. This could save a lot of hours of questions and messing around with configurations.
I'll keep everybody posted - (that is, if anybody is interested).
They definitely won't give you the f8000. there's a comparable sku finder they use and more then likely it'll pull up this model the f7100 or f6400. My guess though is possible the f7100Quote:

Installed the Sony player - everything works perfectly. The Sony sees the DLNA drive and feeds the stream to the Samsung with no problems. The DVD player comes with its own string of APPs and media sources, some in interesting languages. The combo works well. When the DVD player is turned on the HDMI connection turns on the F7500 - neat.
The picture on this TV is so good, I may not even bother to run the calibration disk.
