No online retailer is ever going to pull a specific panel for a customer. They grab whatever is next in line. The ONLY way to get a specific panel is to purchase it locally. LG does the same thing with their S-IPS panels. I had to go to two different BB's, and had the salesperson find one in the back that had the panel designation for S-IPS. They are more than happy to do that if they think they are going to make a sale. When I bought my son's Samsung, I went to Costco and looked at the stacks of EH5300's they had on the floor until I found one with the TS01 version number and had the Costco person pull it out for me.

Can anyone identify the panel manufacturer for this Samsung model, I have not seen this version number mentioned anywhere:

UA - 39FH5003
Ver. #: XD01
SN: 0BD93DBF701152X

Thanks.

From reading this thread, those with a "D" somewhere prolly means its Chimei/CMO/Innolux/whatever the hell they are called now. I do hope its AU Optronics rather than CMO. From my casual inspection, this model seems to have good viewing angles, almost IPS-like. Also, what does xxxx5003 imply, compared to a straight xxxx5000 model? TIA

If you can't find the xxxx5003 model number online, it's probably a dealer-specific model (sort of like what Costco does around the holiday season for special priced models) that may or may not have the same features that the searchable xxxx5000 series has. Or it's a European model. It's not uncommon for mfrs to make dealer-specific models for their big-box store retailers. The letter designation for the supposed panel type is given only in the version number, nowhere else, unless you venture into the SM (not recommended).

Hey everyone, I was planning on purchasing a H6350 55 inch tomorrow. I heard about the panel lottery and did some research, and I read that every 55inch model has a Samsung panel. Is there any truth to this or am I going to have to check the stickers on the boxes to make sure? This is all pretty stressful.

As far as i know there's no CMI/Innolux panels in Samsung 2013-2014 line-up. You can find CMI in new Panasonic tvs for example.

They are recommending the TS01 panel which they claim is Sammy mfg. and will be a better picture.

Can anyone verify??? Of course it is more money - and I am willing to get it if this forum thinks collectively that it is worth additional dollars.

Please advise all comments are appreciated ....

Will call tomorrow - Sunday for update.

Today or early this week is the the much anticipated moment. I hope your expectations are exceeded. If you are taking request... I'd like to see a Macro picture of the pixels on one of these large 4K, high end, first run devices.

On that topic (first run) and specifically concerning panels; I have recently taken my 47" Westinghouse 2007 apart to find it has a Philips LG panel installed. Most of my peers in that thread are long gone onto other displays due to the use of other components that did not meet their exceptions or last. I spent the premium back on 6/11/2007, and did not know S-IPS from sipping wine.

I spoke with ECTV yesterday and because it was Sunday I could not get an ETA on the truck delivery. ECTV told me to call back Tues and they would be able to give me an update on the delivery.

Re the pix on the picture on the TV.... Will do when received.

I skimmed through this and didn't see my scenario so forgive me if it's been asked.

I am about to buy the UN60F8000 from an online retailer known for it's bait n switch. I have a background in TVs but nothing current, just enough to know what I need to turn down to maintain a good deal. But this panel thing has me baffled.

They have the TH01 Panel listed at a price $450 lower then the TS01 Panel. Is it really a $450 dollar difference or are they just attempting to separate the panels in order to perform the bait and switch. They are trying to sell it so much that they'd rather push me to a 55" US02 for the same price as the 60" TH01. Back in my heyday of selling TVs we'd use similar tactics, but the bottom line was the customer was going home with a sweet looking TV for the average watcher.

Let me know, I can't for the life of me figure it out. It seems like both the TH and TS are good panels.

Both the TS01 and TH01 are made by Samsung. Not sure about the US02.

Why would you ever buy a tv from an online source that you know practices bait and switch? That baffles me. As has been pointed out, Txxx panels are the Samsung S-PVA panel. The lower-priced tv could be a refurb, a store demo, what ever.

It's the bargain shopper in me, I have enough wits about me to not let them perform the switch or upsell me... I'll walk out a grand under list price on Amazon and big box retailers. It's a risk I've always taken which knock on wood has so far panned out.

As long as I know the TH01 is a solid panel I'll stick to my guns!

Known for 'bait n switch'.... why bother then?? Is there a TH01? Would one not logically conclude that TH01 would proceed TH02?

Both these versions show a Item Number ofBN95-00950A


For the replacement.. three sites show only that part TVServiceParts, searspartsdirect, and samsungparts

Are you thinking the TH01 might not exist anymore? I know sears used to sell the 60f7500 that listed the TH01 as the panel...

Samsung also uses different panels on their plasma TVs. I have seen the F4500 plasma with US02, UD01, and TS02 panels. All Samsung panels. Both recent plasma purchases had the TS02 panel on the 51inch F4500 and F5300. But the 60 inch F5300 uses a different pentile panel.

I'm demonstrating that a TH01 for that model is unGooglefooable. That may be the bait and switch.. a different Model number with version number of TH01 all together different than the Googlefooable Samsung un60f8000bfxza TH02/TS01

The more and more I think about this, I think you've hit the nail haven't you. There is no TH01 version of this tv... No matter what I do they won't sell me one will they? I bet they do whatever they can until I order a different model or cancel.

I just got a un65h6203 delivered today which I purchased from the Dell home and office site.

The panel version is MH01, which appears to correspond to AUO, according to this site which sells parts for my TV:

http://www.tvserviceparts.com/UN65H6203AFXZA.html (scroll down and look at the panel, it says AUO next to it).

I'll report back in this thread when I check the service menu to find out for sure. I was unable to find much on google other than this page and a couple of other parts sites, so if I find that this is the case (and the MH* versions do correspond to AUO) hopefully others will see this.

Anyone have any knowledge on TD01/02 Panels, currently in the 65" H8000? TS01/02 are in the 48" and 55" and have great blacks/uniformity/contrast but haven't heard too much on the 65" TD01/02. Sorry if this has been discussed before.
