That's because OTA typically has less compression than cable/sat channels and thus better pq (depending on your area and all the other caveats for OTA). Very little to do with the type of panel.

Hi, i'm from Perú. I have a problem, i bought a UN50F5500 Version No: AH02 and it came with a 1 pixel dead. The store going to change it for the same model, but are there only 2 options: Panel AH02 or CH02. Which one do i choose?

I know that the TS01 is the best panel, but that panel doesn't exist for the UN50F5500.

Greetings from Perú and thanks for the help.

probably AH02 as it should be somewhat better in terms of viewing angles and blacks at those viewing angles

I asked for the CH02. I hope that panel works 100%. If not i ask my money back.

Hi! I'm new here, just had a UN46F6300 delivered from Amazon and the model sticker says TU02 for the panel. Anyway, I'm interested if anyone has any knowledge about this panel and whether I should keep it or return it. I assume it's a Samsung, being that it starts with a "T", but thought someone else might know more. Thanks in advance smile.gif

TH0x and TS0x have been confirmed as Samsung panels... Txxx in general should be Samsung panels, but you may need to check the service menu home screen to be 100% sure (which requires opening and turning on the TV)

Thank You! It says 46A1AF0S and I believe the A after the 46 means it's a Samsung. I was amazed when I first turned it on and it has much better viewing angles than my last TV (LG). Anyway, I'm happy with my TV biggrin.gif

yeah the first letter (A in your case) indicates it's indeed a Samsung panel

one of the advantages of the Samsung panel (S-PVA) is better viewing angles vs. the other VA types (MVA based like A-MVA and S-MVA)

As long as you are happy with your tv, that's really all that matters. FWIW, I have an LG with the S-IPS panel and when we bought the Samsung (S-PVA panel) for my son, and compared them side by side, the LG was noticeably better in off-axis viewing, etc. However, the Samsung did provide very nice default pq (as far as my son was concerned) so it was a good selection. The LG is calibrated, the Samsung is not (even tho that has nothing to do with off-axis viewing).

when you say the LG was better in terms of viewing angles, do you mean horizontally or overall?

I tried to look it up on the Sears part site, and found a listing for Samsung Model #UN50F6300AFXZA-NH02 which indicates a panel part # BN95-01098A. I can't seem to find a reference to this part number anywhere else online. (Too new, perhaps?)


This is my first flat-panel TV. So far I am very happy with it. To me, the off-axis viewing and blacks are quite acceptable. Haven't noticed any flashlighting or ghosting issues. I did adjust some of the color calibration settings, and I think the PQ is pretty good overall.

Disclaimer: I am not a certified videophile, so maybe I do not know everything to look for. If anyone wants to suggest specific things to watch out for, I will try to check those and report back.

Were you able to pull the numbers from the Service menu on the NH02?

I did pull those, but I don't have them with me at the moment. I'll try and retrieve them and post later.

I am very happy with the PQ on this set so far. (Disclaimer: I don't watch this TV from crazy angles.)

Guys - how do you tell if the light leak is excessive. I see light shooting from the corners a lot and also the edges. What would be optimal settings to reduce that. I am afraid that my settings are causing it. Want to be sure before I exchange again.

Hmm I just bought a UN40F6300 from Best Buy. I checked the the boxes on the floor and they were labeled either TS01 or TU02. I didn't find this page until a few minutes ago so I went with TS01 thinking it was the only Samsung panel but now I see they both are. Since TS01 has been around a long time I wonder if TU02 is a newer improved version? Hopefully not else I'll be debating on swapping it lol.

Just watch the tv for awhile and use it how you want to. If it meets your needs then it's a moot point.

it's really a roll of the dice, but that being said the difference between two Samsung panels should be much smaller than the difference between different panel makes/types altogether

good point, as long as there are no distracting issues or glaring flaws (that are not typical for LED-LCDs in this price range)

I have switched 4 TVs and can not find a ts01 panel. I have tried 2 TD02 panels and tons of light leaking all along corners and edges. I'm now onto MD01 panel, is that a samsung panel? Anyone know what MD01 is? Maybe here in canada we don't has TS or US panels?

From what I've been reading it appears specific sizes use specific panel types. IOW a 50" my not use a Samsung panel but the 46" will. Perhaps the size that you are looking at is not made with a Samsung panel.

Mine is the un65f8000 (in canada). It's seems many here have the TS01.

How is it different size tvs can be using the same panel? Does TS01 or whatever you have indicate the type of panel rather than a specific panel part?

TS01 indicates the type of panel, not the part number. Samsung, and other mfrs, use an identification system to specify the type of panel used in their tv's. Panels used depend on availability of specific panels in specific sizes. For example, TS01 for Samsung indicates that the panel used is the S-PVA panel which is made by Samsung. LG, on the other hand, used S-IPS panels in some of their tv which was indicated (at least when I bought mine) by a "W", which was the fourth letter in the complete product code. It can be very daunting to figure out the panel type used in tv's by any mfr unless you can "decode" the product codes, knowing that not all panel types are available for all sizes of tv's.

Okay thanks it would be interesting to know what the new TU02 panel is.

You saw my other post as well, right? Service menu shows 46A1AF0S, making it a Samsung panel.

oh yes but I mean the differences between it and TS01. If I have any issues with mine I'll try swapping for one to compare.

Oh for comparison!! I've never seen a TS01 panel, so I don't really have much to offer, but do let us know what you think if you try a TU02. I think it looks fantastic, but again I have no TS01 for comparison.
My UN46F6300 actually had a tiny tiny little dot like knick inside the bezel and Amazon refunded me $120 to keep it, so I only paid $630 total ($750 [price match] less $120 refund & no sales tax).

If it's an S-PVA panel (Samsung), in theory there shouldn't be any difference. The letters after "T" may indicate a new panel mfr year. Again, using the LG example, 2010 used a "W" to indicate their S-IPS panel. In 2011 it was a "Y" I think. Same panel, different year.

there could be differences in black levels/contrast ratios and possibly color too but you won't really know if that's the case unless you try both types and compare them directly
