I'm looking to get a new 40 inch TV this week (preferably Samsung), and I basically got my search narrowed down to two...

Samsung UN40D6000 vs Samsung UN40D6400

The price difference isn't an issue at all, so as best as I can tell, the only real difference between them is that the 6400 is 3D and the 6000 isn't. Does that seem about right? Same TV otherwise?

And, to anyone else who was maybe looking at both TVs like I am, which did you go with and how has it been?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I've owned both, the 6400 is a better looking set, the bezel is much thinner that its sibling. The 6400 is put together differently than the 6000, so less chance of it having the dreaded 'FlashLighting' effect(my 6400 has zero FL, it's a H301 panel).

the 3d on the 6400 is NOT FULL 1080P, if 3d isn't your thing no big deal then, as reg 2d 1080p is gr8! and even SD on either set looks gr8!

there is a comparison tool @ samsung.com or u can go to the 1st post on the 6000 owners thread and it'll lists all the differences.

if u save $$ by purchasing the 6000, then get it. additionally, the bezel is about an inch less on the total width for the 6400, so if you're trying to put it in a tight space, that might be to your advantage too.

Great info! The space will be a little tight, and I'm mostly interested in 3D as a "glad I have it for the future" type feature than a "wow I can't wait to start watching 3D in all of it's awesomeness!!!!" type of thing.

Based on your post, I'm leaning towards 6400 now. Thanks! I'll check out the thread as well.

Is the PQ dramatically better on 6400 compare to 6000?

[edit] nm, saw your reply on the other thread. thank you.

This is my first post in ages so I hope it's in the right place. I just bought 2 UN40D6400's (long story) and set them up yesterday. I only had right channel audio output when connecting to my receiver/amp. I'm using the red/white/yellow cable supplied with the TV connected to the A/V output. I dug out my old oscilloscope and checked all 3 cables for an audio signal. The white and yellow cables are reversed! There is video on the white cable and the other audio on the yellow cable.

The label on the cable is pretty funny also. It says"CAUTION Insert securely lest should be detached in set"

Other than that so far It's a great looking TV. It does take quite a while (20 min.) to autoprogram.

Yes I also would be interested in the PQ difference between the 6000 6300 6400

I don't care about 3D just PQ and flashlight effect..

I'm looking hard at the 6400 (replacing a 42" Philips plasma on its last legs) as one of two models (the other is the Sony BRAVIA KDL40EX720, also 3D), with the 3D as future-proofing - the big attraction, in the case of both models is that both are not only LED, but 120Hz 1080p. The winner will use the same PEERLESS mount that the Philips is using (since both support VESA mounting). Nice to hear about the smaller bezel of the 6400 as well. The added cost for 3D is not as tall as you would think. (In fact, there is no price difference whatever between the UN40D6300 and UN40D6400 at one particular big-box retailer - despite the 6300 *lacking* 3D; otherwise, the two models are mirror images of each other.)
