I just did some research on this myself, (I just bought a 60" 6000 series) and was curious about the differences. According to Samsung's website:
-6000 series has a larger contrast ratio (5,000,000:1 vs 4,500,000:1)
-6050 has Dolby Digital Plus/Pulse (not sure how this makes a difference coming from the TV speakers, or how it works at all, maybe someone can clarify? Mine is hooked up through an AV system...coincidently also a Samsung)
-As stated above, the casing color is dark reddish, hard to tell in pictures though (My old 2008 Samsung had TOC red, I guess it's kind of like this).
-And last, the "Specs" page on Samsung's website has a few minor differences, like showing codecs listed for the 6000 series and not the 6050; also listed is "Typical power consumption" for the 6000 (70w) but it's not on the 6050 Page.
I am very happy with the TV, It's an upgrade for me from my old Samsung TOC 2008/2009 model (LN40A650) which was an awesome TV (although Using my PC or Mac on it though the HDMI ports looked like crap, when I did that I used the PC port).
