    Any word on when Samsung will release information on its 2014 Evolution Kit? Thanks in advance for all the updates you provide.

    It’s a few posts down here

    We list the price and model number. The HD Evolution kit coverts your 201x Samsung in 2014 Smart functionality and GUI. The 2014 One Connect for UHDTVs adds HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2, HEVC decoding, Purcolor and depth featured on the 2014 H9000 series.

    Where did you see the 65″ f9000 @ best buy? I just check all mine and they are seem to be sold out now.

    And the 8550 doesnt have a camera. Only way to use voice gesture is with the remote, no.built in mic.

    The camera for the 8550 and most Samsung Smart TVs is the VG-STC4000. It will be available in April for $100. It provides single hand motion control and face and finger recognition as well as 1080p Skype calls. And “Comes with a lens cover for privacy protection” (from Samsung press handout).

    Sounds like a better way to go than getting H8550. Saw the F9000 at bestbuy 65″ and it looked awesome

    So if one got the UN65F9000, I would have to get the new one connect box to get the Netflix decoder streaming? Would a UN65F9000 with new one connect box be better than just getting the new UN65H8550?

    According to a Samsung spokesperson the 2014 OneConnect box contains all of the signal processing, Smart functionality and inputs found in the 2014 HU9000 series product, thereby upgrading the F9000 to the UH9000 with the exception of the curved screen. The box also includes Samsung’s Auto depth enhancer and PurColor, two features not found on the H8550.
