    That's what this entire thread is about. Moving images and all everyone keeps pointing to is that dang chart that is only about still images. And pixel density has a massive ability to alter picture quality (I never said pixel density changes) on moving images. From any distance.

    I think at one point it's what differentiated hdr sets and non hdr sets with Samsung. Not sure if that's still the case..

    Marketing.... :)

    That's nice. It'll be good to hear how it's possible to work. But making it happen in actual markets on multiple channels around the country? They are auctioning off all the bandwidth that would have allowed a dual transition (like analogue to digital) so now it can't happen till everyone already has sets that will receiver both formats! It has to be an instantaneous transition. Good luck with that broadcasters!!!! :)

    who said the chart is for still images? The charts compares resolution to viewing distance....

    Here's a question I keep getting different answers to: Are the JS8500s HDR sets? I know they are SUHD sets, if what I just read is correct (read Inky's post #102 in this thread), they are, but I was chatting with a Samsung CSR the other day and I was told the 8500s are NOT HDR sets. Well, first she said they were HDR then she changed that to not HDR. Doesn't really matter to me, I'm quite satisfied with mine, just curious.

    Though no longer available through them Crutchfield lists the JS8500s as having HDR (High Dynamic Range).

    Yes. They definitely are. 100% sure. Samsung reps are generally stupid

    Having said this, why buy last year series, when current year series (kS) are heavily discounted at this time?

    Geeze, wouldn't you think Sammy would put that in their online manual? Of course, I might have missed that... :rolling:

    Umm, I bought it last year during the Black Friday sales. I'm thinking about buying a KS 55" this year. I can't stand the plasma I have in the MB.

    You'd win that bet! The set looks dismal compared to the 4K set.

    HDR or no HDR, it shouldn't affect the picture quality of non-HDR material, particularly 720p/1080i stuff. Unless they're artificially changing the actual colors to make it "pop" more. Samsung does that with their phones, so I guess I wouldn't be terribly surprised if they did it with their TVs also...

    I have no idea what Sammy does. Only thing I care about is what I see, and I see a very good picture. I was just curious about my set.

    Got it! I was speaking if one has to buy a new tv. If you already have the JS, great. Not a huge difference.

    If you are buying a new tv, KS is the way to go. No need to look around for another tv in that price range. Great prices on those now, plus prices "leaked" for Black Friday. If you have access to Samsung EPP, you can get a 55" KS8000 for $800

    The only caveat I have about the KS sets is the stand. You need about a 48" base to use those sets, I think. My JS8500 has a different stand and will go on just about any base. I've been considering the 55" KS8500 and I have a base that is large enough for it in my MB.
