I bought one of these at Fry's electronics less than a week ago for $2799 + tax... I'm thinking of returning it. The picture is totally awesome, but I am not sure it is $3000 awesome.. additionally, I can't seem to get anything on Amazon to stream HDR to it (supposedly Mozart in the Jungle and Red Oaks should stream in HDR) but it ain't working for me... I was really hoping to see what all the HDR fuss is about, but without buying an HDR Bluray. Standard BluRays look amazing on it, but I'm pretty impressed with bluray on my current 1080p set as well.. I'm not really blown away by my broadcast channels being upscaled to 4K... not sure they look much better than they do at 1080p (if at all) - I'm using an OTA antenna..

I'm no videofile, but in my mind $3000 is a lot of money - was really hoping it would knock me out once I brought it home and plugged it in... I'm coming from a 60" plasma and I'm now starting to think I'd rather have a 70" or even 75" display - 65" doesn't make a huge difference sizewise and I'm not sure the picture quality difference with standard bluray and broadcast television is worth the money.. I'm sure it will be fantastic down the road with more 4k content....

the other annoying thing is I already have my 60" plasma mounted on the wall.. turns out these OLED sets have some proprietary setup and I can't just mount it on my VantagePoint large tv tilt mount... this is a major thorn in my side - I don't feel like removing the mount and installing a new one - quite a bit of hassle.

I'm really blown away by the sound the set gives.. obviously a 5.1 system is going to be much better (and I've never owned a soundbar) but I have to say I'm impressed with the built in Harmon Kardon speakers..

Just my two cents if anyone cares... I'm hoping for a killer deal on "Prime Day" for a 70" or larger set with strong reviews - if that happens, this is probably going back to the store.

FWIW, I have this TV -- it replaced a Sony 55" 1080P LED. I calibrated Rock Band to that TV and when I played Rock Band on the OLED the other day, I didn't notice any major difference.

Agreed... Microcenter had this for a day and most stores only had 1 so not much use there.

2015. Word is that this TV suffers from vingetting and banding issues.

I've got a question on 4k. Since virtually nothing is available at 4k, and 99% of what you watch will be 1080p, how does it look at 1080? For instance, I have a 1440 monitor, but when I try to run games at 1080, the games look bad (kind of blurry). So does the 1080 content look as good or better on this than a 1080 TV, or does the scaling mean the 1080 content looks blurry or not as good as it would have looked on a good 1080 tv?

Have you checked to make sure the cable and the port are the correct ones for the output? We recently got a 4k monitor and at first it was very blurry. However, after we changed the cable and the port we plugged it in, it is now very clear and has great picture. HDMI 2.0 or Display Port 1.2 at 60hz.

Actually quite a bit of 4K content is readily available, uhd blu rays are also coming out at a fast pace, Amazon and Netflix have a decent amount, directv has decent selection of 4K movies and some mlb games, heck very little 1080p content is available through cable/sat providers it seems like they will be skipping 1080p broadcasts and jump right to 4K broadcasts. Most broadcast is in 1080i not 1080p, 1080p content on a 4K tv will look the same or better than a good 1080p tv but it also comes down to if you run through a receiver that upsacle 1080 content to 4K. Anyway most all content will look better on oled than any other tv available

I'll gladly pay tax to ensure that I have a B&M to return it to in the first 30-45 days depending on BBRW status in the event of some material defect. Additionally the BBRW points are nice.

1080p content looks fine on a 4k panel, this is based on my experience with 65JS9500. Scaling on Samsung is pretty good.

I thought about buying this and then falling back on my Discover price protection but I'm worried that won't work since often times the promos are code based and I'm not sure if that would work.
