Why do you assume it is a Samsung problem?...

Because Samsung already has the updated Netflix App (they've had it for a while now) and they've already rolled it out to the 2016 models.

And only works on the newer Tizen!

Yes that's right but I want to know about 1440p (2560×1440). It's not listed in the manual as a supported resolution, but I'm curious if anyone has attempted it. Someone asked the same question actually on the Geforce forum but it went unanswered.

I'm assuming it is indeed unsupported.
Create a personalized resolution in Nvidia control panel for 1440P @ 60hz.
Have in mind that the picture is darker than other resolutions - you may have to increase brightness on the tv or in-game.

One thing I keep forgetting: your pc must be in 1080P to be able to create the personalized resolution.

That updated Netflix App was written, by Netflix, to only work on Samsung TV's 2016 and going forward with the newer Tizen version. I have no reason to believe Samsung is purposely not allowing it to be put onto earlier TV's other than it isn't compatible.
I again compare to DISH who has been waiting on Netflix for many months for their APP on a 4K Joey. Netflix has no app compatible (as it does for the Hopper part of the same system) let alone the 4K one.

Well, I bit the bullet and ordered a 75 inch 7100 last night but now Best Buy is saying it's backordered. Maybe I missed the boat. I'm not seeing any other 75 inches cheaper or similarly priced that really wow me. $3600 (and that's with taxes) really topped out my budget and wife meter. Haha! I'd go with a P series Vizio but with the tax I'd be reaching into the 4 thousand dollar rage and I just can't do it. Any thoughts or ideas? I mainly play console video games on my TV but also watch quite a bit of BluRay and streaming content. Kinda concerned about the motion blur/judder on the set because of all the gaming.

I currently have a 58inch Plasma Samsung that I love. 1080p and looks great. Just wish it was larger. :D

Are you looking to buy online or in store? You might be able to buy directly from Samsung since it looks like just about everyone else is backordered online for some reason on most Samsung series televisions. Right now the Vizio P Series is on sale for $3800 at Best Buy, but their exclusivity is coming to an end soon. So with there not being much of a price difference it might be best to put yourself in a holding pattern unless the JU7100 is what you need. Right now I'm trying to decide if I'm going with last years 75" J6300 1080P, the 7100 or something else like the 8000 or 9000 in a 65" for the same price points? Something tells me if I don't have a 75" on my wall I'm going to be disappointed. I'm just not sure if I need a 4K :confused:

I feel similar regarding the 75 inch TV vs the 65. I mean, my 58 doesn't feel small. I feel like if I don't reach for the size I really want it's not worth an upgrade until OLED prices fall. I was also tempted to choose a 65 inch TV that had better PQ and price vs the size. But I'd rather have it all, of course. :D I toyed with the idea of also going with a 1080p set and forgoing 4k for now. But I also know that my wife will give me a lot of grief if I try to upgrade again in a couple years. I treat TV purchases like, "Spend as much as I can and as big as I want now because I know this will be it for 5-6 years." So I'm kind of wanting to future proof the purchase a little bit at least.

I looked online and just want to make sure I could get it from a retailer I trust. I saw that Samsung had them for the same price. But If I purchase through Best Buy I'll get over $200 back in reward certificates. I know there are games coming up that I'd like to buy so that'd be worth it to me since I'll be spending that cash anyway. In some form of twisted logic I see it as about $200 carved off the $3600 bill since I know I'll be spending that money later.

I took a look at the 6500 and it seemed alright. A little concerned about the judder/motion tho as it's only rated at 60hz. I watched in store content on it and it didn't look terrible. But it was clear to me that the 7100 unit they had seemed sharper and handled motion better.

I also thought the Sony 850D looked great in stores even tho it's obviously a bit duller. I've been tempted to pull the trigger on that one if this doesn't work. But I'm coming from a Plasma that I use in a dimly lit room. I could see me being very angry at night watching content on it if the TV has crappy blacks.

Ugh. I hate TV shopping almost as much as car shopping. :D But hoping it will all be worth it once that mega display is set up in my basement! :D

EDIT:
Just as I posted this comment I received this email. Best Buy is trolling me. :D Just an ad.

Sounds like we've had similar experiences, but my wife is pushing for the bigger television and knows that eventually whatever I get is going into another room once the price drop and the tech's bugs are worked out. I hear you on the judder, but I've got a buddy who has a 55" J6300 and he's got no complaints. Another buddy has the 65" HU8550 and I loved the reviews on it. It wasn't as rounded as some of the others are when it comes to movies and gaming. I definitely agree that the 7100 looked good when I saw it last night at the Magnolia section of BB. I just wish the price was lower. Otherwise I might as well follow my advice and wait for the prices to drop on the P Series.

So I just took deliver of the 65 inch model. I noticed it has IH02 panel. Didn't get lucky with a Samsung panel. Anybody know who makes this one? Anybody here have one of these panels? Any problems with it?

Thanks - forwarded it to the wife, since it's her set. I just get to calibrate it, and watch occasionally

Carried forward from a long ago posting:

http://4k.mediamanhost.com/#bk-samsung

LG 4K HDR OLED Chess Demo now available for downloading.
I found this to be the best demo of the current LG 4K OLED Demos.
On my HU9000 + SEK - Kings gold dressing showed a tinge of glimmer on the gold. JU7100 - quite a bit! Very good HDR Demo!

Innolux makes it. Its fine, I have one and have no issues. If you read in this thread there are many of us who have this panel and enjoy the tv.

Does Innolux also make the JH02? I'm really happy with the screen uniformity on my set, but was curious who manufactured the panel as I haven't seen anyone post this code.

I have the 65 inch with the IH02. No issues for me, I love it. I'm still using ArchonX last settings and have not gone into the service menu, no reason to potentially brick the tv and void warranty for possibly a barely noticeable picture improvement, it's already good enough. You will be happy with the purchase. From what I have read it is an innolux panel.

Thank you for the info. I see a lot of people talking about ArchconX settings. I can't seem to find them though. Do you have a link the the post where they are?

Thanks
