Do you like the pq? Does it meet your expectations? If so, the panel type is irrelevant.

I've researched your question from site:SetCombg, from our user hristoslav2
Determining and cross referencing the panel to be Innolux. (example: that the "D" in the option code is Innolux)

Parts at SumsungParts


In the picture you provided: the option is code tells all: 50D1UU8EH



50 — inches, the screen size
D — panel manufacturer (A = Samsung; D=Innolux; P = CMI; R = AUO; S = Sharp)
1 — frequency (6 = 50/60 Hz; 1 = 100/120 Hz; 2 = 200/240 Hz)
U — panel coating (A = AntiGlare; U = Ultra Clear)
U — resolution (F = Full HD; U = UHD)
8 — 1st, 2nd panel and so on (1st = 0; 2nd = 1 ...)
EH — backlight unit (S = Single side LED; V= Two side Edge LED; EH= Even Horizontal ; RH= Rounded Horizontal)


Samsung parts show this and abbreviated it as LCD-INX (INX is Innolux)

Anyone have any info on US02 Panels? I'm looking at the 55" H6400 and it comes with either TS01 or US02 Panel. I've heard the US02 is a revised/better version of the TS01 but not too sure if there's any truth to that.

What I have seen from the UNXXHU8550's thread it is a Samsung panel. I saw a 78HU9000 at the Magnolia theater at BB and the set looked fantastic. Pricey though.

Question

Is the USO2 just on larger screens or is it all sizes? i'm only looking at a 46" and thought the TS01 was the best to look for.
I'm just frustrated as this is the most i'll ever have spent on a TV so I want to make sure I get the right one.

I believe both are Samsung panels. Hard to say if one is better than the other. And there is also a TS02 panel on some models.

FWIW, I just bought a 32" Samsung (H5201) with the TS01 panel for the bedroom. According to the post history this should be the Samsung S-PVA panel. It may be. Straight on, the pq is solid. Off-axis sucks big time. For us, that's not a big deal because the angle is set for optimal bed viewing. My son has a 42", last year's model, TS01, and his off-axis is much better than mine. More important to him than us.

Hey all!

I would desperately need correct Model/Option for my ue55hu7100. I pressed wrong button and changed it....I think I got it back OK as 55A1UU7RH but would like to confirm it! Any help appreciated!

SOLVED: Confirmed 55A1UU7RH is correct. So it seems Samsung UHD Panels!

If you're messing around in the Service Menu I would suggest you never go back in there for any reason because you can really mess things up by accident.

Anybody got a clue to what kind of panel VS03 is? I googled and nothing came up. Just got 65F8000 and was expecting a US or TS panel but now I'm just clueless

Looking to get my 2nd choice UN55H6350AFXZA since my 1st choice UN60H6350AFXZA are version HS01. So which version would folks recommend in the UN55H6350AFXZA TH01 or UH02? I'm going to try and hand pick it at a B&M store even if it means I pay more (verses online shopping).

TIA

As you know both are Samsung panels so I don't know how much difference it makes. FWIW I have the UH02 panel and have no complaints. IIRC BB had 6 of them on a floor display and all were that version.

Thanks.


I visited my BB and they had 3 boxed up ones on the floor and they were all TH01s. Walmart's powered-up display was also a TH01 and I liked the PQ. The BB one was mounted too high for me to check.

Hey guys/gals,

I have a Samsung UN55HU8550. From what I understand reading this thread, those seem to have the best, Samsung made panels, correct? If not which is the best panel ID number? All this is rather confusing, and I am surprised that Samsung does it this way (the "lottery"). And also, is the "best" one 10-bit? Thanks!

Best is a relative term. Basically when folks talk about the "best" panel, they're referring to the Samsung-made S-PVA panel, because the way the pixels are aligned determines a lot of the panel's characteristics (without getting into the specifics of panel technology). Panel type is determined by availability at time of build, size, etc. To my knowledge, there is no guarantee that all builds of a specific model line will always have the same panel type. There are three ways to get a good idea of the type of panel you have. One, take a 10x or greater magnifying lens (the loupe test) and carefully take a picture of the pixel pattern and then compare that to a reference picture. Two, go into the Service Menu (something I don't recommend), look at the panel code, and then look up that information either here in this thread or online elsewhere, and two, sometimes the Version Number (TS01, etc) is good indicator of whether it is a Samsung-made panel or not. There is lots of info in this thread as to what the various Version Number codes mean (TS01, HS01, US02, etc).

As far as 10-bit color depth goes, that should be listed somewhere in the specs because there is no guarantee that ALL S-PVA panels are 10-bit. 10-bit panels will be nice because they can handle the wider color space that HDMI 2.0 will be able to carry, but that will be source dependent.

Thank you for the response and the help Otto Pylot, I appreciate it! I check it out and see what I have running. I will likely use the service menu, but I will just be careful. I've rummagd around in there before just to see what is available.

I would strongly recommend that you do not "rummage around" the Service Menu. That is the quickest way to brick a tv. Pressing an arrow key, hitting Return, or any other seemingly harmless operation can change a setting and really screw things up. Quite often SM options/settings are slightly different from tv to tv depending on the firmware present, the version number of the main board(s) etc. So what works in one SM might not work exactly the same way on another. If you screw something up in the SM, you have voided your warranty and some mfrs will not fix it. There is usually nothing in the SM anyway for the end-user. Some have been able to activate a feature that is not available on their model but is on a higher up model because main boards can be in-common for various models and only require a firmware activation. But that firmware activation may require another component which is not present and results in problems.
