** OFFICIAL ** 2014 Samsung 4K UN55HU6840 Ultra HD Smart TV Thread
This appears to be a one of a kind model number that was released pre Black Friday.
I got mine yesterday from hhgregg for $899 + tax.
This is the official thread to discuss this set.
Based on a 1-day ownership ... here is my initial take (will update as I get more familiar with it).
- 60 Hz set with a Quad-Core processor (very fast)
- Not a 3D set.
- Smart TV / Smart Hub has Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, Amazon, HBO. M-GO etc etc. Bunch of Apps
- Has Netflix 4K and M-GO 4K apps
- Connects to 5GHz wireless without issues
- Black levels are weak out of the box
- Can configure Picture settings for individual HDMI ports
- Has 1 USB3.0 and 2 USB 2.0
- Plays 4K videos I downloaded from utube fine
- Very sharp looking pictures when calibrated (I did a quick one last night)
Calibration Settings (for now)
Picture Mode - Standard (I know movie is recommended - will play with it later)
Backlight - 4 (anything above this and the blacks start looking gray ... also there is light bleed)
Contrast - 95
Brightness - 48
All other noise and motion stuff has been turned off.
