Walmart sells a 55 inch samsung FH6200 display (UN55FH6200FXZA).  I don't find this listed on the samsung website.  Does anyone have any information on this model number?

This particular model is available for sale in Mexico & Brazil, and is 3D-enabled there; its USA equivalent would be the UN55FH6030FXZA. There also appears to be another variant based on the same chassis: the UN55FH6003FXZA, which is a non-3D set.

If you click on it with the Walmart add...it shows a different tv than what is in the add.  I don't know which tv is correct.  Its a good deal if its the one in the ad, a crappy one if its the one in the description portion.

 

Best Buy has a Samsung 55" 120 Hz LED tv for $799...and that is regular price.

 

I am hoping someone gives more info on which is the correct tv walmart will be selling.

I am pretty sure the TV they'll be selling is the one described and not the one pictured in the ad. I haven't seen any of the Samsungs with the "spider legs" at such a low price in the 55" size.

The Wal-mart ad says it's a Smart TV.  The FH6003 is not Smart.  Samsung has a 60" version on its site, but little info.  The picture is definitely wrong.  The FH models are back-lit and have a rectangular base.  If it's Smart, it's a good price.

The tv is listed in their black friday ad.  The description says it is smart, but nothing about 3D.  The base is rectangular in the picture.  This does not appear on their regular site.

So if it's Smart then regardless of the black stand or the spider stand, it's a good deal for this price?

The equivalent smart, 120Hz, non-3D, edge-lit version (UN55F6300) is currently $1299 on Samsung's website.  The equivalent non-smart, 120Hz, non-3D, back-lit version (UN55FH6003) is $799.  It looks like this is Samsung's only smart, 120Hz, non-3D, back-lit TV.  They did had a 60Hz version last year (UN50EH5300).

let me know what you find out, I did a search on this as well, and found this thread.  When my wife showed me this add, I was convinced to run over there and purchase it.  A Samsung 55" 1080p 240Hz LED - I was like oh-yeah I'm there!

 

However after clicking through to the details it says, model UN55FH6200FXZA which is totally different than the advertisement...

 

Here is the flyer link: <http://weeklyad.walmart.com/walmart/BrowseByPage?PromotionCode=LA_Walmart-131128BF&pagenumber=15&storeid=2495158#PageNumber=17>

 

And here is the detail link: <http://www.walmart.com/ip/Samsung-FH6200-55-1080p-120Hz-LED-HDTV/29313915>

 

Something seriously wrong here...

What I find frustrating is the ad shows a 240Hz refresh rate but when you click the "View Details" button it states 120hz.. When you click further on the "Learn More" button and read the web listing it also states 120Hz.. The ad shows it as a "special buy" which I interpret as a special model made for Walmart Black Friday perhaps? Maybe that's why there's no info for this specific model number on the Samsung website? Just a theory. Right now I'm thinking the 120Hz is correct and the 240Hz is an error on the ad.

I can't decide if the Samsung 240hz refresh, if correct, is better than getting a larger (60") Vizio at 120Hz.. Personally, I'd rather go for the largest screen and the lower price, but I'm not sure if 120Hz is considered adequate or not. I also like that the Vizio has 4 HDMI inputs vs. 2 on the Samsung.

Anyone have an opinion on 120Hz vs. 240Hz.. Would I be able to notice 120Hz vs. 240Hz.


About 2-3 years ago I got the Black Friday Walmart 42" Polaroid and it's been serving me well ever since. Now, I'm ready for a larger screen.

Now that you mention it, the Walmart ad doesn't really state that the $727 price is a savings from some higher price like they do for the other TV's they are listing for Black Friday. They just state it as a "special buy" The more I think about it the more I am leaning towards the 60" Vizio.

You will not see a difference between 120hz vs 240hz. It is mainly marketing BS.

The ad says 240 "Refresh Rate", which is Samsung speak for 120Hz.  Google Samsung CMR for more info.

After researching a little more, I have given a thumbs up to Rudy1. This model looks like it is all over Mexico & Brazil.

Fair price but not the deal we all thought at first. I see that in the description that it is "PANTALLA SAMSUNG LED 55 FHD (1080P) SMART CMR 240 120HZ 2 HDMI 1 USB CONNECT SHARE MOVIE UN55FH6200"

Rudy1, can you help us understand what CMR 240 is? Perhaps this is what the ad is hinting at?

As far as 120Hz vs. 240Hz, fast motion sports would be better. For instance, a golf ball in flight, on a 120Hz you would see some artifacts of the ball, kinda-of like a ghosting trail. At 240Hz that would be less noticeable. Especially other larger screen size you go the more apparent it becomes. You have to take consideration of 16:9 and the Native resolution.

As far as I know, most broadband feed programming is 720p, not much 3D out there either, and 4K is still a ways away. So, 1080p is going to be coming from your Blu Ray media.

Best bet is to go to the store and stare at the screens...

If I upgrade my 50" LG plasma, it's going to be a 55" LED 240Hz...which is why I was interested in this thread to figure out the Walmart Black Friday advertisement.

Best Buy carries the 60" FH6200. It's relatively new and I'd assume it's made for the holidays specifically. I have not seen one hooked up, but the pictures on the box reveal the same chassis that the FH6003 uses. Luckily the rear panel is pictured and unlike the 6003 the 6200 includes an optical audio output. It is smart, but the pictures on the box would indicate that it uses Samsung's older, 2012 version of Smart Hub, and there is no mention of a dual core processor anywhere on the box like you'll find on any 2013 model. So it's safe to assume that it's using last year's hardware and software. Better than nothing I guess.

WannaLearnMore,

You are correct...the CMR 240 technology only allows a native 120Hz panel to simulate the picture that a true 240Hz panel would produce. They use similar technology to simulate a 120Hz picture using a native 60Hz panel. Most LED-LCD TV manufacturers do this, resulting in claims of 480Hz panels (or even higher) by some. Often, the increased amount of time required by the TV's video processor to perform this trickery results in undesirable effects, including audio sync issues. I have seen the technology implemented by various manufacturers, including Sony, Samsung, Vizio, and LG, and in most cases the reduction in blurring and the increase in apparent sharpness is quite striking, especially when watching sports.

Hi,

 

I'm new to the forum and I am also trying to weed through the thicket of specs on the various TV offerings. I see that people here are having trouble finding this TV "in the wild" as it were. I have found the exact same TV in a 60" on Amazon:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN60FH6200FXZA-60-Inch-1080p-Smart/dp/B00FMST2Q8

 

and here on the BestBuy site:

 

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-60-class-60-diag--led-1080p-120hz-smart-hdtv/2160126.p

 

Both show the set to be DLNA which is important for me. I still cannot find any detailed specs or owners manuals.

Surely the difference in quality would make that choice easy?

Not what I was saying at all.

 

It seems to be generally the case that Vizio is a lesser quality brand, with lesser quality panels.

 

Hence, while the Vizo is slightly larger, the Samsung being much higher quality should make the decision easy.

I dont believe the Samsung is much higher quality than the Vizio. Especially with the 2 specific sets being compared.
