- Samsung UN55D6000 is $1,259.00

- Samsung UN55EH6000 is $909.93

Any recommendations or suggestions will be welcome.

Howdy!

I cannot speak specifically to the PQ on those TV's but the EH is back-lit and the other two are edge lit. In doing my research I found back lit to generally be the better technology as the lighting is more even across the picture. Blacks can be darker too with local dimming. I own the UN60EH6000 and think it the PQ is great. With the right settings i get no soap opera effect and haven't found this model to power off the backlight on dark scenes like the ES-series LED TV I tried out. This is replacing a 5 year old plasma. I tried out the current crop of Samsung plasma's and had bad luck with two buzzers. The other thing I like about the EH is I am not paying for Smart features I won't use and 3D which I found to be just OK at this point. Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!

Just got the un60eh6000. Like it so far but I have 2 problems. I cannot get sound out of my receiver unless the tv is on. This was not the case with my LG 47LH90. Does this tv not have pass through or not support audio return or what? Any ideas? Also the eco sensor does not seem to work. Where is it located? I took a flashlight in a dark room and shined it all over the bezel and it made no difference. Receiver is a Yamaha 5.1 and it is hooked via HDMI to the HDMI/DVI 1on the tv.

I disabled anything that would dynamically control the backlight for power consumption, yet my UN60EH6000 rapidly dims and brightens the backlight when the screen is almost black but not quite. If I remember correctly, it happened right after Baraka ended with a black screen, before it went to credits. It's happened on other sources as well. I never had this problem on my Samsung B630, using all the same components, so I'm confident it's an issue with this TV.

I'm pretty close to returning this TV. It has great clarity and brightness, but it's terrible with dark motion. As I mentioned before, I have to turn brightness up to at least 52 to get rid of the purple trails behind dark, moving objects. Also, the reds and blues look pretty bad, and I experienced what I think is "red push" on Ghost Protocol in the dust storm, although it was also apparent on the B630 so it's either both TVs or it's the source.

Ty Pendlebury wrote on CNET forums that they'll review the 6000 soon, hopefully before my return deadline, so I can see if I'm just paranoid or what.

This TV and my Samsung B630 won't pass sound unless they're on; however, luckily with this TV, you can turn off the picture but keep the sound going, I believe it's under the Eco Sensor options or somewhere in that gear-cog menu.

Anyone know how to check what firmware is currently installed?

Navigate to Menu > Support > Software Upgrade, but don't hit Enter on Software Upgrade, just have it selected. Then hit Info on your remote, and your version will display on the bottom of the screen.

The setting the two parameters to "0" did not work for me. As I think I described earlier in this thread, If you try that setting with any documentaries that pan across still photos, you'll see a lot of jumping.

Clear, on the other hand, after several days of testing, seems to be quite nice.

Perhaps I will be keeping this TV after all.

[Still want a firmware fix for the issue, but I'll take this]
post #250 of 2546
Got the 40 inch model of this and I have to say that I'm loving it. I downgraded from a 47 inch 2012 lg 3d tv to this 40 inch model and I'm not at all unhappy. I can't believe that a tv half the price has a better picture. Sucks I'm missing the 3d feature but I think I'm going to live with it.
post #251 of 2546
Someone reviewing at Amazon claims that they get sound just fine through their Onkyo receiver with tv off. Also there is another firmware update as of 6/1/12.
post #252 of 2546
The un60eh6000 does not have local dimming.
post #253 of 2546
I have the 60" and I had to return a scratched one.
post #254 of 2546
Yes. The un60eh6000 definitely will display 24p.
post #255 of 2546
I just did a live chat with samsung to find out the details of the new firmware (v1012.3) and this is what I was told--
Quote:
Glicelle: I see. I think I have it now. Complete model code is UN60EH6000FXZA.

Glicelle: Firmware update version 1012.3-
- Makes better picture quality and solves sound noise with ''Auto Volume On''.
- Corrects AMP setting to work.
- Optimizes picture brightness change on Eco Sensor On.

Excited to try it out tonight! smile.gif
post #256 of 2546
Awesome, i'll have to give this new firmware a try tonight as well. On the current firmware i'm running (march update), I still tend to notice a lot of studdering/motion jaggedness when watching thru my cable box (sci atlanta 8300HD DVR). I've been trying to figure out if any of it has to do with my settings on the box (everything being output to 1080i so that the TV doesn't have to flip between 720p/1080i modes when changing channels). Blurays at 24p look fabulous and definitely don't show any studdering/blur, so i'm fairly confident its something with the current firmware. I've tried the clear setting for AMP, as well as custom with 0/0, but for me the game mode seems to do the best job with motion for now. We'll see if that changes with the june firmware!

Quick question as ive noticed the contrast ratio is different from the 6000 and the 6050 model, but aside from paper, is this a significant difference in contrast? I ask because i just purchased this tv yesterday at costco, and for the 6050.

Its significantly similar to the 6000 model, but purchased it there due to the 2 year warranty that costco includes with it.

If there is a huge difference, then it goes back tomorrow. I still havent calibrated it either, but man, im stuck with finding out im an INCH short to fit my center in my media center with this.

Any opinions would be appreciated.

On a sidenote, Syntax as well as Gexxys personal calibrations are greatly appreciated. These are the only two settings ive seen on this thread.

Thanks guys. im at work and all i can think of is the TV. i only got to work on it for an hour.

I upgraded to the UN40EH6000 from the UN40EH5050. I had spent a lot of time tweaking the UN40EH5050, and was never truely satisfied with the picture quality. The upgrade only cost me an extra $30 dollars, so it was a no-brainer. I also had to spend a lot of time tweaking the UN40EH6000, but overall I am happy with the exchange. smile.gif

yeah reason i ask is b/c Costco has the EH5050 model on sale right now for $599. I paid $770 after taxes for my eh6000. i would probably save over $100 on it.
post #263 of 2546
The various 50" EH models are starting to show up at retailers, at least online ones.
post #264 of 2546
realized that the contrast written was dynamic contrast ratio, which in this case its moot.

im keeping my 6050 at this point. i think im going to save myself the headache of repackaging this. i will tho, end up checking the bezel et al just in case.
post #265 of 2546
So is everyone here pretty happy with their EH6000's? What about those of you with the 60" models? I'm coming from a 50" Samsung 720P plasma so motion is my biggest concern. I hate the soap opera effect but it sounds like it can be eliminated on this set. Also hopefully the screen is a little less glossy than my mirror like plasma. I've debating on this and a 60" Sharp LED... I just hope my seating position of 8' isn't too close. My wife sits about 12' away on the couch. I could opt for the 55" but I haven't decided on that yet.

Like you i debated on getting this or a Sharp 60 (with 3D and stuff), that can also be purchased at our local costco.

My wife pretty much put it into perspective after i roughly brought up my concerns.

1.its either a new panel with the full lit display, versus a edge lit year old model
2. we dont have enough 3d stuff anyways, and we wouldnt be using it that much at all.
and lastly,

a quality panel versus one that has predominant clouding issues, edge lit challenges and then some.

that put me in my place and thought its a good panel, i only need two hdmi connections anyways (one for tv viewing, the other for my AVR), and wanted just a bigger screen.

Hopefully this helps out Mr. Listedguru.

im not certain about the seating position, but if sharp tells you to use the 3d stuff at 7 feeet, that should help indicate you should be fine. wink.gif

Very good info you point out. I also like the fact that the Samsung does come in a 55" size if I should decide to go that route. My 50" plasma is a Samsung and it's been great it's just getting time for an upgrade:)

Love the UN46EH6000F. Just upgraded to the new firmware and hoping that it stabilizes the Auto Motion settings because I was seeing the issue where they would randomly switch back on, or to something different between power cycles. Will follow up with more tests and my own settings.

Those settings really prove that there is no one set for all. I think that they look terrible on my 60eh6000. Colors are washed out and the picture looks cloudy cloudy and dull. I do like a little more color than most though. What tv do you have Gexxy?
