A lot of what you are comparing will ultimately be 'beauty in the eye of the beholder'. I also turn off such effects/processing usually, but other may prefer otherwise. The micro-dimming, matte screen differences IMO may be more relevant though, albeit you will get some other opinions @ AVS too. The 8 series is where the really good quality kicks in for LED IME. At a price of course
I've had a Samsung UN65H7150 for about a week now and it's been wonderful. Love the picture quality, but I'm wondering if I should have gone bigger. I found a Samsung UN75H6350 for only a few hundred more dollars, and am considering returning the 7150 for the 6350 to get 10 more inches. Unfortunately, the UN75H7150 is out of my price range. Will these TV's have similar picture quality? From what I can tell the differences are the 7150 has 3D, 240Hz (960 CMR), and Micro Dimming Pro while the 6350 has no 3D, 120Hz (240 CMR), and no dimming technology. I don't need/care about 3D, and from what I've read the difference between 240Hz (960 CMR) and 120Hz (240 CMR) will not really be noticeable. Same with the loss of Micro Dimming Pro. Is this true? Just for a little bit more info - I am sitting 10' - 11' away from the screen. I also don't play video games or watch sports very often. I turned off most of the settings on my 7150 such as Digital Clean View, Mpeg Noise Filter, and Auto Motion Plus, and would do the same on the 6350 (didn't care for Auto Motion Plus at all). I watch 1080i DirectTV, as well as Netflix/Blu-Ray on occasion. Any thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated!
