Initial thoughts on the 65” 4k, so i bought it Saturday morning to see what I thought I had made my mind up and wasn’t going to get this but I figured I would save myself the 40 hours over getting a vizio m65, sony 850d, Samsung ks8000. Really for 730 fees in for a 65” I might as well try.
Brought it home set it up, upstairs initially beside my 7 year old sony 46” 1080p. first getting it out of the box was interesting by ones self, but I managed, I got the model with 2 feet firstly it has been posted here how far apart they are but that is really far fyi. Even with the feet installed it still seemed really woobly, and not very stable. Not that big of a deal unless you have clumsy people/animals in the home.
When I plugged it in I followed the instructions earlier in the thread to get to the other settings and set everything. i am coming from a 46” sony and a 50” panny plasma both of which I still think have pretty good pictures. Then I hooked it up to my pc(i5 4690k, R9 390) via hdmi. I put on a bunch of saved movies I had, Moana, Hell or high water, John Wick these were all very high bit rate files. Most of the were 5.5gb+. Now when playing stuff off my computer I was getting a really weird skipping and gittering, every 45 seconds it kind of looked like it was buffering which was super weird and I still have yet to figure out why. Now when play was running Moana looked really good all the colours looked really sharp, the waves crashing looked good which is a lot of movement. For some reason my computer did not like the resolution it did not fit on the screen half of my start bottom bar was cut off, I did not play with this long but it was a little weird and annoying.
After hooking the Tv up to my PS4 I tried a bunch of other stuff, the stuttering went away completely which was nice I played a bunch of stuff off Netflix. Now everything looked pretty decent but if there is a black beside a bright white or grey, I was ending up with some clouding? Not really sure how to describe it it kind of looked like a fog around it. For me I only really noticed it in the left hand side of the screen it was reasonably noticeable. Espically beside my other Tv with the same thing on it did not have the clouding. I am going to play with the settings to see if I can get rid of this. Other then that it looked pretty good I have a bit of a bright spot in the blacks near the bottom but its really minor. Oh and because someone is going to ask the speakers suck wich I am fine with I would be happy if someone sold a tv with out speakers at all and passed the savings along to the consumer, I was using this a in a 18’x22’x7.5’ room and it sounded tiny small, and had no depth. But theres a deal on kanto yumi right now buy those and you’ll have an great sound experience for cheap that will crush any tv speaker.
Overall as long as this keeps working for quite a while I will be very happy it was a awesome deal at 730 all in and I am very happy aside from the small gripes I had I am going to keep it and not return it. Pretty impressed by the colours and most of all the price! Enjoy people!
