Official Samsung UNXXD6000 Owners' Thread - Page 5

post #121 of 3067
I just purchased the 55D6900 from BB and it is amazing. I feel like I can touch the people in the movie. I am coming from a 5 year old 40in lcd, and wow. I didnt know tv could look this insane. It looks more like I am watching a play with live actors instead of a movie. I need some advice. I do not know what kind of cables to get. I am using out of the box cheapo HDMI cables atm. The screen information doesnt ever go more than 60hz. I assume that is becasue of my HDMI cables. I read the monster cable HDMI cable box and they say alot of cool specs and up to 120/240hz, but they are too expensive. Are there any other options for HDMI cables that will give me the most out of my new wonderful tv, but at a more realistic price point?

OK, I see that you are merely conjecturing. I don't know what an optometrist, or any or all optometrists, don't recommend. As you phrase it, I'm sure there are any number of things they as a group don't commonly recommend, such as climbing Mount Everest eating a pickle sandwich -- that would not necessarily imply they would recommend against it, but if you are trying to say they actually frequently recommend against sitting in front of a computer screen in a dark room for long periods of time, I wonder where you've gotten that notion -- what surveys or data are you interpreting? And, even if they recommend against it to any and all with whom they have contact, this says nothing as to why. It could be that they feel it irritates the eyes, but to assert that it burns the retina is to jump to some wildly extreme assumption without basis. Another thing: why would the presence of ambient light affect, one way or another, potential damage caused by the screen light entering your eyes? -- ambient light would not reduce the light emanating from the set, unless it has that feature and you have set it that way, so if you have dangerous light levels from the set burning your retinas, I can't imagine more light added to that ameliorates or eliminates the jeopardy.

But I see with your clarification above, you are just supplying us with a personal theory.

Please don't buy into monster cable hype machine. HDMI cables (assuming they are the same spec - i.e. 1.4) should have the same picture regardless of the brand. If you are dissatisfied with your current HDMI cables, check out Monoprice. (Plus, they are a forum sponsor!)

I would check your picture settings first for the refresh rate before I start thinking it's the cable's fault though!

Its always gonna be 60 Hz to the TV from my understanding.I think that the TV processor jumps it up to 120 or 240 from that point depending on the set.

If your doing short runs with your HDMI cables then any of them will work fine even the cheap ones you already have.

If you want some that are better quality and very flexible I would suggest

http://www.bluejeanscable.com/

This is where I got mine and I believe they are a sponsor of this site.These are the ones I got and couldn't be happier.They are more than you need and have the future ethernet line in them which you will probably never use.They just didn't have the F2 in color and length I wanted.

for those that have mounted their sets on the wall, what's your opinion on the different "low profile" mounts out there? Samsung has one for $200 but there are generics that only cost a fraction of that.

The reviews on Amazon for the cheap ones claim you need to purchase some better wall anchors but that they work just as well. any thoughts?

How important is this feature for you? If it's a must-have, I would consider paying a little a more for a model that has this. I wasn't terribly excited when I read about the web browser feature but, after using it with the qwerty remote, it's actually quite nice. Pretty fast page load times, although Flash isn't fully supported (if at all).
post #127 of 3067
I picked this TV up on Friday night at Costco. It was on sale this weekend for $1699 after an instant $200 rebate.

Admittedly, I was going in to pick either the VIZIO XVT553SV or the Sharp Aquos 60" LC-60LE832U. I really wanted to like the Sharp because it was an affordable 60" but the one in the store had a lot of pixelation. The Vizio wasn't bad, but it just really wasn't an attractive looking TV with so much trim on it.

A young guy working at the store talked to us for a minute and suggested we look at the Samsung UN55D6050 at the end of the isle facing the front door. We walked right past it when we came in and I didn't notice it for some reason.

When we started looking at it we were blown away. The picture was incredible and the TV was pretty sexy looking with the thin trim.

I took it home and on Saturday morning I preceded to rewire my entire home theater with HDMI cables. Basically I connected all of my video devices (Directv HR20, Xbox, Sony Bluray) directly to the TV with HDMI, and then fed only an optical cable to our home theater receiver.

The only picture setting I changed was changing the mode from normal to natural. Right out of the gate, we were blown away, which wasn't hard to do because we were coming from a 6 year old 50" Sony Grand Wega LCD projection with an aging bulb.

We watched 30 minutes of "How to Train Your Dragon" on Bluray. All I can say is WOW.

We watched about 90 minutes of TV shows throughout the weekend. Live tennis and basketball was very life like. Desperate Housewives was so clear, it almost appeared to be 3D, however there was some studdering that became annoying. I am not sure why it studdered so much since there's not a lot of action. We had some strange things with this same program about 2-3 weeks ago on our old TV, so for now I am going to assume (and pray) that it's just something with ABC and/or that show.

The critical test for me was Xbox. I played about 2 hours of Call of Duty Black Ops. Overall, it passes for me. I saw details in games that I had never seen before! As far as lag or blur, the game flowed smoothly about 97% of the time. There were a handful of occasions where I would notice a blurring affect for only about 1 second at a time. It wasn't so bad that it ruined the game or messed up my gameplay, but it was there. It didn't blur the entire screen either, it would just be in spots, usually in the middle of the screen. Usually when I would notice it, by the time I would focus on it and try to analyze it, it was already gone and back to normal.

I did figure out after playing that there is a game mode setting in the system settings, but I have not tried this yet.

This is my first LCD/LED panel and we are thrilled so far. As of yet, I am not technical enough to understand some of the problems (flashlighting?) with this type of TV to even make a comment on them. All I can say it that it's a HUGE improvement where I've come from and my wife and I are anxious to learn more about this TV and all of the apps.

Otherwise, there wouldn't be much to differentiate the 6000 from the 6300 lines. Not sure about the Yahoo widget though.

First thing I checked but would think it has to be at least downloadable? the next two models up dont have browser either after 6300, if it's not downloadable I guess I'll have to bring it back and get a 6300...Is there hardware that is required that is not in the 6000 to allow you to browse??? maddening that they leave off something as fundamental as a browser.....

not hugely important but it's a free piece of s/w on the net, just bothered that's it's not there, what else might be missing/function later on when I can't return it. i.e. Amazon instant video is run through Yahoo widgets, I can't see that or find anywhere to download it, I'm unsure if that's related to the TV model also...good to hear it functions well though..Browser.

edit, ok found an answer to say the Yahooo widget was not currently available for the 2011 D models, so I'm hoping they won't restrict on a model basis...and after checking the prices I guess a web-browser isn't worth the extra 200-300$ !!! happy enough with the 3 6000 models I got though 32/40 and 46 otherwise I would've spend the extra for a single high-end model if that was the requirement.
post #130 of 3067
Could the current owners start posting their settings? When mine is delivered thursday I plan on spending about 3-5 hours tweeking the settings. Once I am finished I will post what I have. Be aware though, I usually set the mode to dynamic. I love the bright and popping colors. I do reduce the backlight and auto motion settings though. I do love the camera on rails look but not when viewing regular cable broadcasts. I am actually going to attempt to carry over some of the settings from my current set. I am upgrading from a Samsung LN52B630. Excellent set but it has served it's time. It is happily retiring from the living room to the game room!

How have you found the reflectiveness of the screen on your 3 tvs to be in your house? What type of room lighting are the rooms where they are located?
post #132 of 3067
haven't seen any issues with reflectiveness. 32 inch in bedroom with low very low lighting middle of room above. 40 inch in son's den with track of 4 overhead bright lights none directly point at tv the are high enough not to be a reflective issue, 46 inch in living room no overhead lighting, natural light from side, low light lamps in the room.

I would not use any wall mount that was not secured by lag bolts.I picked this one up and used it for my TV,its solid as a rock.I checked compatibility for my TV as the Sanus site.BB sells this brand.I did have to go up to the hardware store because the bolts provided not the lag bolts but the bolts that go into the back of your TV were to short and to long.Thats with using the little gray plastic spacers that Samsung provides.

I used the lag bolts provided with no problems,just make sure you drill a pilot hole or you may break the bolts.

I'm not sure either. I think this is the place. I suspect there just aren't that many people with the 2011 models yet.

My settings so far are very simple: Natural mode with back light reduced to 10.

I don't have the skill yet to know what to change. I do have the Avaya (spell?) DVD that I will try out later this week.
post #136 of 3067
I bought the UN55D6300 ; Bought the Netgear WNCE2001 adapter to connect to Internet. It works with my 2 year old Panny Bluray player. It shows Green light to show it is connected wireless with my router. But I couldn't get the Samsung to pick up the wired connection from it. I have the AT&T service & DLINK router (n). The picture on this TV is awesome as expected. Any one can help me to figure out the settings so I can make it work please. Thanks for your help.

I must have not noticed all the new tech for hdtvs. I went from normal hd to the 6900 and I have a few questions. It looks like morgan freeman is sitting in my living room its that clear, but it is kinda creepy. Is it normal for it to look like I am actually watching the filming of the movie and not the movie itself its that clear? What is that icon on the info mode that looks like a gage showing ledtv/conventional tv? Anyone know any optimal settings for the D6900? This is my first time calibrating a led tv.

Try to play with Motion Plus in the settings. You can switch it completely off to provide a cinema like look of the movies you watch - 24p.

You should go to the settings and change Color Temperature to Warm 2. It provides better white balance and more accurate colors

The standard settings are too cool and the Motion Plus at default settings provides the so called 80's look of a cheap soap opera and it messes up with artefacts and trails after movements.

Yes it is very freaky. It's like you are on the movie set watching it being filmed. If you turn off automotion plus, that effect will go away. But it is indeed very freaky for me too who upgraded from a 10 years old projection TV. It is commonly called the soap opera effect.

Isn't that great though it actually makes you feel as you are there? I never understood what the soap opera effect is but viewing that makes you feel as you're there seems a plus in my book unless it doesn't look realistic

What do you guys set blur and judder to for a realistic picture? I will not have my set until Monday but am trying to gather any pointers of settings to tweak beforehand....feel free to post them.

No, it looks fake. You can't get lost in the movie. It is like you are on the set directing it. A good example is Prince of Persia, it looks very fake. I put on my Red Cliff blue ray, and that also looks fake with AMP on.

Theres nothing wrong with liking that effect. Let the man enjoy it. Choices are awesome.

Well I couldn't say I like it one way or the other as I cant even really tell to be honest wether AMP is on/off judging from my old A650

As far as blur and judder is this seperate from AMP, what should these be set to? I know I noticed juddering before and that I didn't like.
post #144 of 3067
Iam going to start playing with the settings soon. I am not sure if I can handle the soap opera effect for all of my movies. What is the difference in the automotion features? Smooth vs Clear vs Standard?
post #145 of 3067
Clear seems to be the best choice. Samsung customized it you cannot get the same effect by setting the AMP yourself. Clear doesnt give the soap opera effect either.
post #146 of 3067

Used a basic wall mount from Amazon with no problem. Around $30.00 as I recall. Cheetah at this link http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._ya_os_product

Look at the Samsung site with the description of the D6000. The icon for Web Browser is in the middle of the screenshot of the Smart TV icons.

Your set is in Store Demo mode which reverts settings back so store personnel don't have to go around resetting the TVs when customers mess with them. When you first turned on your set it asked you to pick Store Demo or Home Use, and you either missed it or picked the wrong mode. Check the manual to find out how to change it to Home Use. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll look it up.
