85" 4K Defective - Replacing With Three 75" 4K's

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Turns out the 85" 4K Samsung is defective, getting crackling sounds and every now and then a momentary pixel pops up. With that said, I liked the 4K look so much I just worked out a deal with HHGregg to replace the defective Samsung for three Samsung 75" 4K's (UN75JU6500FXZA).

Waiting on a delivery date, they are in a warehouse in Orlando.  Now to get to work on a new table to support these sets. This is, A. unexpected and B. very exciting... I wasn't thinking about adding additional exterior views at this time. I was a bit disappointed in the Optima EH200 projector dusk/night/dawn visuals, then overwhelmed by the 4K... Now I'll have three.

 

UPDATE: They Will Be Delivered Tomorrow.

 

I love this hobby.

Just out of curiosity.  What made you choose the 3 TV's versus going with higher quality projectors on a curved screen, like a NatVis setup?

Hi Tony,

 

The three monitors come in at about ten grand and offer 4x's the resolution of the projector. The three cannons are over 15 grand, then we have the three projector mounts $350.00, then the wrap around screen, another 5 to 7 grand.

 

Price for three 4K sets at 75" each= about ten grand.

Price for three projectors, three mounts, wrap around screen= At least 20 grand.

 

Downside to the tv's, two bezels in the front corners of my view, downside to projectors additional cost and reduced resolution.

Ouch!  Well I can see why you went that route.

 

Geez, I thought you could easily come in around a 10K price point with reasonably good projectors and a screen.  Might have to rethink that idea a little  :blink:

Hi Tony,

 

I just want you to know I did NOT use Natvis, I'm sure his/their capabilities with visuals are far superior to mine. I just couldn't justify the cost of flying Natvis to the states to set everything up, sorry Nat but that is money better spent on Flight Sim hardware/software.

Hey Mike, I figured.  I'm sure your setup will be pretty awesome.  Looking forward to seeing how it turns out and how it "feels".

Hi Mike, looking at your profile page you obviously have a collection of system components that boggle my mind! I just curious though as to how all of it is all physically set up? If I'm not misunderstanding your specs, you have 5 cpus, 4 graphics cards, 4 motherboards and yet only 16 GB of Ram. Do you not currently use all of these components in your rigs, and how many physical rigs do you actually use at any one time?

 

Hope I'm not taking up too much of your time by asking this, but I'm just fascinated by your setup. I'm a guy who is dreaming about upgrading to a 30" or 32" main monitor!

 

Thanks Mike

Hi Paul,

 

I have no problem helping out fellow simmers.

 

Right now the setup is as follows.

 

1. Flight-Sim runs on three computers (cpus - 4790K's), with three additional to be added.

 

2. Graphic boards (Total video boards 7: 3-610's, 3-Titan X's Superclocked, 1-690

 

3. Ram Memory (each computer) 16GB @ 2400

 

Hope this helps, any other questions you may have... feel free to ask.

Thanks Mike,

 

I appreciate the quick reply.

 

Let me know if you ever get bored with this setup because I'd be more than willing to take it off your hands for you  :wink:

 

I live in Galway, which is on the West Coast of Ireland, so postage would be pretty steep. Unless you happen to be flying to Shannon or Dublin in the near future. If not, because I'm such a nice guy, I'd even be willing to pick up half the delivery costs! No need to thank me, that's just the type of guy I am  :Big Grin: .

 

Seriously though, I cannot imagine what simming on such a setup feels like on a purely immersive level- and you'd know, having the real thing to compare to! You say you're adding three more pc's- I can't imagine what for, but then I'd imagine that you're running a pretty complex simpit, so possibly they give you control over some of your hardware add-ons? Don't feel the need to answer, I'm already unable to process what it's like viewing and simming with a three by 75" inch 4K cockpit

 

If you ever put up any videos on youtube, please let me know, as I'd love to see it in action! 

 

Best of luck with the 75" Samsungs, and thanks again for such a prompt reply

Hi,

 

I have a video I put on Youtube that shows the three monitors in action. Keep in mind, I just installed these nothing has been tweaked yet.

Looks great !

 

Mike, how far are the monitors away from you ?

Mike, since you mentioned three computers, are you running three copies of P3D one for each computer? If so how do you sync three copies?

 

It's a fantastic beyond-the-dream setup, no doubt...

Hi,

 

My setup is as follows, with three additional computers to be added in the near future.

 

1. Computer one runs P3D3 - Three Titan X's Superclocked, each tv has a card.

 

2. Computer two runs Sim-Avionics (Hardware/software interface)

 

3. Computer three injects weather, and also runs ASN, FTG-ACARS, Navigraph, PFPX, Topcat and sim-avionics (just the pedestal)

 

I run one copy of P3D3.

Driving 3x 4K screens from a single computer is unbelievable. How is the fps and what kind of settings you can live with?

 

I guess you must be running SLI with 3x Titan X?

 

Can't even imagine the cost, must be sufficient to buy a small plane here in US..
