Slight off topic:
After reading through the entire thread, and learning about the narrow viewing angel, clouding, banding, etc, I must ask about FH6030. I have recently gotten rid of a LG 55LW5600 due to blur issues, local dimming not working great around the edge, etc. Initial research suggest the cheap FH6030 with direct LED will be much better than any edge led. Any opinion? Thanks.

I don't know anything about that particular model, but I can tell you that just because it's direct lit (which is basically a cheap version of full array) doesn't mean it's better than an edge lit TV.

Very good point. Folks over at amazon and bbuy are very satisfied with the 6030. I am still doing research and hoping to find a set w/o motion blur. Thanks.

Alright, so I looked again and I had definitely hurt my black levels with those adjustments, but I've tweaked things some more and I think it's looking really good right now. Surprisingly the flesh tone setting does seem to help a bit. Here are all of my settings:

Backlight: 16
Contrats: 95
Brightness: 48 (this might be a little high for some people, but I like being able to see all the details in dark scenes)
Sharpness: 15
Color: 47
Tint G/R: 50/50

Flesh Tone: +10

White Balance---
R-Offset: 21
G-Offset: 23
B-Offset: 22
R-Gain: 19
G-Gain: 10
B-Gain: 45

Gamma: +1 (you can increase this if it still seems too yellow to you, but everything else washes out too)

Looks pretty fabulous with these setting IMO, but your mileage may vary. The one thing I would note is that blues don't quite pop as much as you may like, but it's not something I'd even notice if I wasn't directly comparing it to my desktop monitor. Blue things are still blue.

Hope these work for you all. Good luck!

Two requests: I'd like to know if there's a way to program Netflix to come up with one button press (those lettered buttons look useful), and if anyone's got some equalizer settings for the speakers that they like, I'd appreciate it if you could post them.

Do you notice any soap opera effect with these motion settings? What is the benefit you see in using these motion settings, vs. just turning it off?

^^Those were the recommended settings on a different site. No soap opera effect. Going to try turn it off entirely to see if I see a difference.

Is there any way to stop the Smart Hub from launching every time you turn on the tv? I primarily use my directv remote to turn on the tv/satellite box, I then have to grab the tv remote to exit out of the smart hub just to watch some tv.

how does this F6300 compare to last years ES6100/6150

purchased the 40inch ES6150, debating exchanging it for a 46 ES 6300.

Netflix is hella slow and gets stuck between episodes on the 6100, does anyone know if the F6300 has the autoplay next episode feature for netflix?

The dual cpu should have made the tv faster as well?

Thanks for the update. I know my current es6150 doesn't do that. In fact it lags and never shows the upcoming season episode listing.

Hi guys,

I bought my TV a while ago at sears for $1100+tax for the 60inch F6300. Been using it for a few days for about 3-4 hours total. I have a few questions.

When I tried to watch some MKV movies, some movies has more than 1 audio channels, how do I select between the audio, such as 1/2 and 2/2 for english and french for example, and how do you select the different embedded subtitles? There isn't any audio button on the remote control and the CC button always said not available when there's clearly a subtitle in the movie.

Thanks.

^^Selecting audio track and subtitles is a function of whatever you're using to play the mkv files with.

What player are you using?

I used the TV to play my MKV files. The TV is capable of playing various video formats via the USB input.

I normally use plex server for my media. It has an awesome xmbc front end and allows changes between subtitles and audio per movie.

Hey all, I recently got this set and I have it connected via HDMI to a receiver. Sometimes when I switch between sources on the receiver, the TV displays a message "Check the device is connected properly, then try turning on the device by selecting the button below".

Is there any way to disable this message?

Thank you!

As a former Samsung HL-R6167W 61" DLP owner for the past 8 years (color wheel failure) I purchased a UN60F6350AF from Costco for $1249.00 + tax last weekend. Have tried adjusting the settings to get the picture to look the way I wanted, and more like the old DLP that I enjoyed for several years, which could only display 720P. Haven't tried any of the suggestions here yet, but stumbled across this last night, and find this VERY close to what I was looking for. I'd recommend you give it a try, for TV viewing, as I know gamers wouldn't like these settings.

I think your right, as it looks like all the settings are the same. Watching "The Killing" & "Falling Skies" which are on the dark side (no bright sunlight scenes) still look a little on the dark side, but I like the look on other tv programming. Still need a few days to fiddle with it.

I had a samsung dlp (hlt6187, from 2007 model year) and went to the 65f6300. I have found that no amount of tweaking will duplicate the look of the dlp, at least in my experience.

I use the settings copied from that site with a few little tweaks. I bumped the color up to 54, and set the custom AMP to +10 for blur reduction and ) for judder reduction.

I just purchased the 60" version of this tv.
For the money, this tv is hard to beat.
Do you have to change the settings for movies, sports, etc each time you watch it?

Just purchased the UN40F6350AF from Costco for our bedroom.
The picture is absolutely clear on this TV.

Do the calibration settings from the 60" apply to the 40" as well?

The main thing for sports is to have the motion rates fast to prevent blurring. But the down side to enabling all of the motion plus settings is that it can make scenes look fake with the soap opera effect.

Myself and others have found that setting a custom motion settings with +10 on blur reduction and 0 on judder reduction will give you smooth motion without the soap opera effect. As soon as you start mixing blur and judder reduction together, you will see the soap opera effect. If you have not seen it, the way i describe it is the character in the front of the scene seems separated from the rest of the seen, almost like it is too far in front of everything, and the movements look so smooth that it looks fake.

I'm very tempted to buy the 32" F6300 HDTV. I see there is also the cheaper 32" F5500 also from Samsung. Do you why it is cheaper? Lower picture quality?

Could you say that in the 32" HDTV market, the 32F6300 is the best one available?

Thanks!

Hello to all. I started another thread about choosing between a Samsung F6300 tv and an LG 5400, didn't get too many responses. There's no F6300 thread, but I was referred to this thread.

I've decided I want the F6300 46 inch, preferably from Amazon, but obviously I can't look at their inventory to see if they have any Samsung panels. So I will buy from wherever I have to. Unless of course, some of you know how to contact Amazon shipping facilities and have them cherry pick which tv gets sent when you order it? Hey, it sounds like a very long shot, but I had to ask.

So...if any of you know...which is the Samsung panel version of the F6300?

I'm returning an EH5000 (60 Hz, "clear motion 120") which is marked "version HS03", and it is definitely the Sharp panel. It has terrible pink halo motion artifacts around dark objects that move across the screen. If everything is lit brightly in the scene, you never notice any artifact. I dislike the "interlaced" looking, staggered pixel rows also. You never notice them if you sit across the room from the tv, but I sit close. I had to adjust every slider in the white balance menu, achieved decent color...although sometimes I wish the color temperature setting had finer increments than just 3 or 4 settings.

Why do Samsung use Sharp panels anyway, and why are they so crappy? They should just have a cheap version that uses the Sharp panel and sell it for $150 less, that would be the fair thing to do...rather than offering different panels for the same tv model and charging the same price.

This thread isnt as active as some of the other official threads, possibly the name should be changed to F6300 since F6350 is just the wholesale club version.


Amazon wont let you cherry pick, I know, I asked, But I bought my tv about 10 days ago from and shipped by Amazon. It arrived with exceptional packaging, and it was the TS01 version. Which is all I think they offer in the 46F6300 according to the sears parts site. I had Amazon price match Buydig for 699.00 at the time since it was on sale. but it seems that has expired. I know they sell it at the local stores like bestbuy for $749.99 right now (tax is a bummer)

my old EH5300 was garbage too, which is why it went back, it had a sharp panel also.

I'm happy with my 46F6300 panel, works great, picture is awesome, Solved my netflix issues. I think the smart hub v2 netflix is more updated than the previous v1 smart hub.

I love the Tv, Just waiting for someone to post some 10point White balance calibrations tongue.gif
