Summary: This is the best TV I have owned. The picture quality is great. I just use the basic remote that comes with the TV so I can't comment on the fancy voice-activated remote. I am surprised that it works so well on my bright great room which has a lot of windows.
So far so good. The people that are complaining about the hum ...

Summary: So far so good. The people that are complaining about the hum have never owned an old school CRT before or plasma TV before. All plasmas have a slight hum when the picture is turned on and a bright white screen is displayed. I have four plasmas and they all have a slight hum from time to time. It's usually during a commercial when I mute the audio. I am a huge audiophile and it's never caused an issue for me. These plasma TVs also make great space heaters.
Summary: I had been looking to buy this TV for over a year and while I didn't necessarily need to upgrade my 7 year old 1080 Samsung DLP, I knew I'd be missing out if I didn't pull the trigger. I mean, there didn't seem to be a bad review out there and I definitely didn't want to wait 5 more years for an OLED 4K (or whatever it will be by then) to mature and come down in price. Let me tell you that this is as good as a 1080p set will get.
Best TV Picture Quality I have seen, including the 4Ks out there

Summary: Astonishing. For me, the picture quality is the most important factor when purchasing a large TV. The F8500 will simply blow your mind. HD content (NFL, Walking Dead, Arrow, on and on...)through DirecTV is utterly gorgeous. I have a PS4 attached to it and oh my lord, it is stunning. I have not calibrated it and currently using the movie mode. I'm not sure I would be able to make the picture any nicer. It is THAT good.

Summary: The picture is really wonderful. It is better than an LED - really! Even the professionals that were wiring the rooms, etc. were taken by its crisp, defined picture. The tracking of the ball/puck/whatever was exemplary.

Summary: Got this last year from value electronics in Scarsdale ny (they do the HDTV shoot out) and can not be more pleased. Not a single problem. When I turn on the tv and watch a HD channel it's amazing and bluray is even better!! Have not used the 3D since my girlfriend can't see it (same eye issue as Johhny Depp) but doesn't matter it's amazing. The only regret is I bought the 51' should have gone bigger.
