I just bought the 46" version for our bedroom. So far, I like it, but I think I have gotten less picky about electronics as I have gotten older. I haven't had a lot of time to play with it or adjust settings yet. I am interested to hear other owner's opinions.

for the $650 or so you can pick up the 46" for, it's a solid performer... plus the 6030 comes with only one panel type... Samsung S-PVA (which is the one most people try to get)

anyone know if there is a way to turn the panel off, but still play audio through the speakers? one of my Sony TV's does this, and it is actually a nice feature if you want to listen to Pandora via Roku, or one of the music channels on DirecTV.

In the manual, look under ECONOMICAL SOLUTIONS/ECO SOLUTION: You want to set ENERGY SAVING to PICTURE OFF. The screen will go dark but the sound remains; just press any button on the remote to turn the screen back on.

Anybody find any optimal picture or audio settings? I cribbed some from the 6350 post and they look pretty good. http://www.avsforum.com/t/1467138/official-samsung-un-f6350-series-led-tv-owners-thread/90

I found the following from the UNXXEH6030 site. The poster said that these are settings he got after the Geek Squad did a calibration.

Picture Mode: Movie
Color Temp: Warm2
Gamma: 0
Backlight: 16
Contrast: 98
Brightness: 43
Color: 48
Tint: 50/50
Sharpness: 6
White Balance:
- R Offset: 25
- G Offset: 27
- B Offset: 25
- R Gain: 12
- G Gain: 25
- B Gain: 25

These are good in Movie for BD. I modified them for use in Standard, which I use for sports and the liked on cable TV and also used Spears & Munsel disc to check the settings.

Picture Mode: Standard
Color Temp: Warm2
Gamma: 0
Backlight: 18
Contrast: 85 (Standard contrast is higher that Movie so this about the same at 95 in Movie)
Brightness: 46 (more detail in dark areas)
Color: 50
Tint: 50/50
Sharpness: 28 (sharper without much ringing
White Balance:
- R Offset: 25
- G Offset: 27
- B Offset: 25
- R Gain: 12
- G Gain: 25
- B Gain: 25

I also us Auto Motion Plus on Custom at 10 blur and 0 judder, which seems to help with motion artifacts in Sports without too much SOE (although i am not crazy about the way this TV handles motion)

Auto Motion Plus Settings:
Off- Switches Auto Motion Plus off.
Clear- Provides high blur reduction, low judder reduction
Standard- Provides medium blur reductions, medium judder reduction
Smooth- Provides low blur reductions, high judder reduction.
Custom- Allows for customer user settings for blur and judder.
Demo- Displays the difference between Auto Motion Plus 120Hz on and off modes. The screen after applying “Auto Motion Plus” appears on the left.

So what's the final word on the 3D on this model? Is the crosstalk bad? Is the set even capable of Full HD 3D? All of the pro reviewers seem to be anti-3D, so you can't find any information about this feature on any of the new models.

the 3D is definitely crap on the 2012 version of this set (terrible crosstalk and not full resolution... I could tolerate the latter but the former makes it completely unwatchable), but I haven't found much info on the 2013 version (aside from an anecdotal report or two)

you might need to test it out yourself in a store if that's an option or buy from somewhere with a great return policy

HI 6030 Service Menu White Balance.jpg 306k .jpg file
I found these settings for a Samsung 6300 and they worked very well on my 6030.
They came from this site :

.
They worked VERY will, but I cant apply the 10pt White Balance settings because when 6030 Service Menu White Balance.jpg 306k .jpg file I go into the 6030 Service Menu, the white balance settings look like the attached photo, and I don't know how to translate the settings in this document to the settings in the Service Menu (see attached picture)

Any suggestions ?

Does anyone know if you can turn off the front led when the set is off? I tried tape but it is the remote sensor too and taping it blocks the signal.

I'm considering getting the 40in version. How detailed are dark movie scenes? I was watching cabin in the woods, and I could hardly see anything that was going on with my current tv. Also, I know it has a 120hz refresh rate, but how is the response time?

The game mode is buried in the general settings in the menu, it makes the response and blur good for gaming.

After calibration this tv looks beautiful. Blacks are good, not plasma good but led good.

ok, on samsungs website, it says the tv is $529.99, and that there is a limited time savings of $120.00 if the order is placed by today. would that make it $409.99? I emailed Samsung but they haven't replied yet. if so, I think im going to get it today.

shadow detail is pretty good once you set brightness and gamma correctly... overall, it's quite good but not perfect (since sometimes the darkest details in the shadows are a bit hard to see)

+1, it calibrates very well and blacks are pretty much the best you can get from any current LED/LCD display that doesn't use local dimming... basically native contrast ratios in the 2K:1 to 3K:1 range

I thought the fh6030 tvs did have back lit local dimming. I know it has back lighting for sure. I just assumed from that that it had local dimming.

The stars are aligned, today this TV went down $100 at Costco, so I get to go get my discount, along with some ribs for dinner tonight.

no local dimming, for that you need a F8000 series or higher (top end/flagship models only)

got the tv. family guy was on when I first turned it on, and there were lines up and down the screen. I started to worry, but checked my other tv, and I guess family guy just has lines. other things look good. switched over to iron man, and you could tell they were acting, and you could see when things were green screened and fake. turned off all of the things that had an off option and now it looks pretty good. just got done setting it up though, so don't have much time on it yet. has anyone professionally calibrated one of these yet, that could post settings?

I just picked up a 55" FH6030 after my 55" EH6030 suffered unfortunate panel damage which was not covered.

I ran the avshd calibration through my ps3 and that plus some of the "legacy" settings from my EH have this set looking sweet.

Standard
Backlight 9 - set this to your own viewing conditions.
Contrast - 89 or 90
Brightness 34-36
Sharpness 4
Color 33 or 34 anything higher is zany
Tint 52-48 or 51-49
Screen fit

These are off or to your taste:
Dyn con low
Black tone dark
Flesh 0 or -1
Color space auto
White balance......
R off 25
G off 27
B off 23
R gain 20
G gain 24
B gain 25

Gamma -1 or 0
Motion off

Warm 1
Dig noise auto
Mpeg auto
Film mode off
Amp custom - blur 7 judder 5 or 3 I tinker with this or go clear based on content watched or off
Led motion off

I have 2 other samsungs with amp and this one seems to do it the lightest of the panels I have.

Finally, a review on this set:

http://www.digitaltrends.com/tv-reviews/samsung-un46fh6030-review/

BTW, any current owners care to chime in on the 3D performance of this model...specifically, does it display significant levels of crosstalk?

That review is a flat out joke. They are using 16:9 for the picture size, right there they are wrong. Using screen fit is what you use or you get overscan. I also have zero issues with viewing angles, blacks are also solid. My 55, has been calibrated with the WOW disk.

I have this tv(40), I think it's pretty good. Kind of want to go bigger to maybe 46,55 I'm thinking either the sony hx850 or the w900a are these sets an real upgrade or are they just slightly better?

I just bought the 2013 model and the 2d to 3d is one of the best I've ever seen! Zero cross talk and ghosting! I've owned it for a week now and have not taken it off 3d if that tells ya anything :-) My Sony Vizios e3d is almost unbearable bc of all the cross talk, but IMO, you honestly can't get any better than the 3d on UN55FH6030!

Couldn't agree with you more! That review is very misleading... Sounds like those guys just don't like Samsung, hehe
