I wouldn't have a problem with the stand if I was table mounting it. I won't be, it'll go on the wall and it'll look ridiculous with that thing on the bottom.
I think that's why it has to come off. If it doesn't then there's no way it can be wall mounted like that as it would look ridiculous as you rightly say and I can't believe Samsung would risk sales if the F8500 couldn't be wall mounted.vism said:I wouldn't have a problem with the stand if I was table mounting it.

I wouldn't bet on that as this is taken from a hands-on from Tech Radar:Good man, the question is finally answered.
Here is the article in full -With the kind of design that its designers simply couldn't get away with on a run-of-the-mill living room TV, this totally gunmetal-gleaned 51-inch telly has a D-shaped curve emanating from the front of the TV that acts as a desktop stand. Blimey - now that's a brave move.
It all leaves us a bit nonplussed, not only because it's verging on industrial sculpture, but because the realisation dawns that the 51F8500 isn't designed to be hung on a wall. Samsung is probably banking on most home cinemas using AV furniture to support a TV, though an idea does cross our mind; why not stick the 51F8500 in the bedroom and hang your towels on it?
If the buzzing can only be heard that close then I'll be more than happy.vism said:Yeah, it's really buzzing isn't it.
Still, look good from this vid. They've probably downgraded the other 2 though and having them on an angle probably reduces the contrast a bit.
