Summary: The television is used in my media room. The picture is great but does lag a little with programming not in HD. The speaker settings reset every time the television is turned off. Overall I am very happy with this set.

Summary: Excellent picture. I initially experienced a severe judder effect when watching sports. However, I discovered the cause was not the television, but was a setting in my stereo receiver in which I had my cable box and OPPO running through. Once I changed the resolution setting in the receiver, the judder effect went away.
Summary: Great TV, I have it fully calibrated with CAL Man and did a full 10 point calibration. Compared to the 7K series it appears that the 8 has the 10 point adjustment. I know you're not supposed to iuse the enhanced black setting but it looks really washed out without it. Overall I like it, but it's still not OLED and there is a little bleed in the corners. 4K streaming looks the same as Bluray and is pretty much worthless.
Summary: I have the TV installed but I have a concern. Frequently the picture has a slight jitter to it that lasts maybe 2 seconds. Also the words are often not in sink with the picture. Is this to be expected or do I have a problem TV?
