    Plex TV Hacked

    Aren't the plex account and plex forums different logins? Shitty that this happened, but they're not going to get anything of much value.

    Anyone from the first few days of release holding out on firmware give in and update to the latest yet? Any downsides? Still sitting on 1005 and having a few display blanking issues, wondering if a firmware update is worth it.

    I came from a Dell 3007WFP IPS screen (albeit an old CCFL backlit one). I make about 30% of my income from photography work, and the JU6500 has much better color reproduction once semi-calibrated than my old fully calibrated screen did. I would be shocked if you were not impressed with the color.

    This happens to me too. I think it may be because I have a secondary 30in screen hooked up as well. Are you using another screen other than the Samsung?

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    I had both the 40 and the 48 (non curved, due to photo editing needs). I settled on the 48 based on the fact that the DPI is the same as what I'm used to at work on my 24in 1080p screens. The larger size is still taking a bit to get used to a few things, like full screen application menus...

    Is the 1210 firmware good to use vs 1209 now? I've been out of country for the last 2 weeks and it seems like Samsung has been working the whole time!

    I'm really liking "Sports Mode" for gaming. It's nice that it has a dedicated button on the remote as well.

    Only FPS I have installed is Borderlands 2. It plays about what I remember it on my dell 3007wfp. Guild Wars 2 is amazing at 48", I usually play zoomed out to the max with max FOV so I would guess it's pretty similar to Diablo 3 or Civ/Starcraft 2.

    I can adjust the HDMI black level in UHD mode on the 48JU6500. I did not test this on the 40JU6500. Based on the chroma test image it looks to be 4:4:4 still.

    This did not work on my 40in. It stays on the no input floating message. Have not tried on the 48in yet.

    Just tried out the 48in 6500 and i think i like it better than the 40in 6500. I know most people are interested in the curve, but I tested one in store and there is no way I could use it to edit photos. Will post some camera-phone pics tomorrow for those interested in the flat version.

    Don't think I saw it in the thread yet, but I just did a pixel shape test on my 40ju6500 by drawing a 6 inch square in illustrator and physically measuring it. It was a perfect square when measured, so that should rule out non-square pixels. I also ordered the 48ju6500 for pickup at Fry's...

    Game mode still runs at 4k 60hz on my 40JU6500. Thanks for the tip about sharpness, I was not going to even use game mode with how it made everything look.

    It's the option "Edit Device Type" right above "Edit Name" in the source dropdown menu. I've only tested guildwars2 but I dont think game mode is on because im still in 4:4:4, and last night in game mode it was clearly in 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 (could not read red item text). However, perceptually...

    Thank you, probably a case of me not RTFM, but appreciated nonetheless.:cool: Coming from a 3007wfp (non hc) I think the input lag, even in game mode, is much higher. I wonder if it's because I had not renamed the input to "PC" yet. UHD color was on, but some other "TV" features could have...

    I do a lot of architecture based photography and need to correct lens distortion on the majority of my paid work. Would I end up battling additional perceived distortion from the curved screen as well? Edit: Also, anyone calibrate one of these yet with an x-rite or similar?

    Can you use an imaging program to draw a perfect square approx 5 inches or so in the center of the screen, then physically measure it with a straight edge and give us the results?

    Crucial M4 128gb Enough for a Boot Drive?

    I've had a 128gb M4 running as my OS drive since release. I have a good amount of Adobe Creative Cloud apps installed and Skyrim on the SSD. Current free space is ~20gb. I did manually set my page file from the 32gb that windows wanted to use down to 2gb static. You should be fine.
