So I got a new TV :D - Page 2

post #11 of 13
After much research and following your posts, I decided to pick up the 64" F8500 tonight. All I can say is, "WOW!". What a picture.

Was able to snag it open-box from Best Buy for about the same price as the 60", so I'm pleased. Great TV so far. Thanks for all of your valuable feedback!

Glad to hear you love it biggrin.gif I love mine more and more as i keep watching it.. I love the bloody thing to pieces.. its just one of those TVs.. No LCD is going to match its IQ for a long time I think

I'd have done an open box one from Best Buy (one of mine DID have a 60" open box for $1400 and I had a coupon for even more off of that..) but the specific one they had in the store was abused, Heavily, By abused I mean they played the cooking channel on it 24/7 for 6 months straight at Vivid store mode settings, Cooking channel has a bright lurid orange channel ID thing in the corner.. So all the F8500s they had had the cooking channel thing burned into them in the lower right corner.. They also refused to let me attempt to inspect it (Using the TV's built in Expert mode things at the very least) to see if it had any further issues or attempt the screen wipe thing to try to get the burn in off. So yeah... Sadly my local Best Buys were not terribly interested in getting me the F8500 (which is why I tried a different TV in the first place) Which is why I went to a local dealer.. Which is fine, my local dealer is awesome biggrin.gif Somewhat sad I missed out on using a triple point coupon on it... I woulda gotten something like $300 back in reward certs(on a new one obviously) from that and my Best Buy card :/


-edit- in other more fun news I indulged in playing Alien Isolation on the F8500 from my desktop, WOW.. INCREDIBLY smooth action.. and the Plasma suits the game so much better than my IPS LCD monitor...
