    I'm really interested to know how much the 48" H8000 will be.

    Curved screens only for the 8000 series? Glad I got an F8000.

    Depending on the reviews I could be tempted by one of these. I think the curved screen may help with backlight uniformity, don't ask me how its just a hunch.....lol

    Why are the manufacturers forcing curved screens on everyone? (and it's not limited to TV's, look at LG's new smart phone).
    Have they done extensive research proving thats what people want? I wall mount my TV's and (IMO) I think a curved TV on a wall would look daft.
    Had I been looking to change my set this year I would have bypassed Samsung and looked at the alternatives.

    Do your research and certainly don't be drawn in by the bright lights of the big stores, I was very impressed by a Sony X9 today initially but could soon notice a few little issues with it, having said that it was head and shoulders above any other LED in the shop. A VT65 is about as good as it gets, just go smaller unless you really want to try LED ;)

    I've just sold my VT65 on this forum today. It's good, but not to be controversial it didn't do it for me. I came from a 5 year old Pioneer which I have to say I preferred. This the reason I'm ready to try something new.

    I felt exactly the same when I saw the VT65, it just didn't have the wow factor for my (unconventional) taste, how about the 51" F8500? You really need to see one if you haven't already, yes I know it's the LCD forum, sorry folks :D

    There is a VT65 in Newcastle Fenwicks next to some of the latest Samsungs and Sonys, and it just looks dull and lacking in detail. I know folk will say its in a bright environment etc, but so were the others and my house has lights and windows. Its no wonder it's the last plasma they have!

    I'm not knocking the VT65 in any way, until today I had the 55" variant. The picture quality could be astonishing at times, It just didn't happen often enough for me, plus the fact I bought a TV that was too big for my room and was giving me headaches more often than I could stand :(.

    Do we have any information on when these are likely to arrive in UK shops? What sort of time was it last year?

    Thanks.

    I phoned a store and asked them. The person I spoke to said their buying team was expecting the new ranges to arrive in March, with the 8000 and 7000 series being the first to arrive.

    look at what was floating around the internet... specs for the H6400s with a quad-core processor; dimensions and glasses seem different from F6400 and not much else is revealed in the brochure

    LE: oh, this is the north-am model, no micro-dimming and 480cmr for the rest of us

    That's US Dollars, they pretty much worked out the same numbers ie £2500 or $2500 as the US is so much cheaper at launch
