Hey there, bought the UN40D6000 yseterday at the Big Blue box store. It's standing in for my 50" Panasonic plasma as it waits for power supply boards (grrr). When the Panny gets fixed, the Samsung will be relegated to the family room to replace the old Sony 32" CRT that won't die.
First time with an LCD TV. Picture looks great in HD. SD is so-so, but no worse than the Panny. Got a few questions:
- I typically spend the $$ to get my last two TVs calibrated (plasma, rear projection CRT) but am looking to cheap out with this set. Anybody have a professional calibrator tune their picture, and can you please post your setting? Thanks.
- Audio is kinda weak, no surprise with two little 10W speakers. I use a HT surround sound setup with the Panny, but in the family room I'm not going that path. When buying the TV, the BB sales guy was trying to push open-box sound bar stuff that they had on a table. Anybody use a sound bar? Is there an improvement? (probably the wrong forum).
- The picture keeps resizing itself, from 16:9 to 3:2, depending on commercials and the programming. I've messed with some features but I can't remember what. Can I keep it stuck on 16:9?
Thanks a lot.
