post #511 of 2546
Just ordered a 60". I can't wait to watch Avengers on it. I just had a kid and didn't get to see it. Batman either.
post #512 of 2546
Ok. First off, I had some issues with the 50" inch version of the EH6000. It had terrible purple undertone to the picture that made everything a bit off. I assumed it was because the 50" was newer with updated firmware since no one reported this issue on the other sizes. I hated it and returned it for a refund. I was going after the HX850 but did not have an extra $1200.00 to throw down on it yet. I was searching Cnet and came across the Vizio M3D550KD. They compared it slightly to the Sony HX850, (PQ), and the price was great, ($1198.00). I'm taking it back though because there is backlight-bleed and the panel doesn't seem to be correctly installed as it moves inward about 3/4 of an inch in the corners. Vizio Customer Support did not help the situation either. Lately I've noticed a slight purple tinge to my picture. It is not as bad as the 50EH6000 but it is there. I bought a coaxial adapter from Lowe's about a day after I received the 50EH6000. In case anyone doesn't know what I'm talking about or I'm saying the wrong term, it basically allows me to hook my coaxial line in to my wall from any angle instead of just straight on to my wall. Could this be causing my picture to have a violet/purple tinge? It is silver not gold if that makes a significant difference.

I'm thinking about exchanging the M3D550KD for UN55EH6000. Anyone have similar issues with violet/purple tinge on any of the EH6000 sizes? I really liked the Direct-Lit LED aspect of this tv but I don't want to end up with another purple tv. Thanks in advance.

I think I'm about ready to purchase the 60eh6000. The main question I have now is in regards to the 3.7" thickness. It is a must that it can mount on my wall; I will have to decide on another TV if it can't. Has anyone mounted this on their wall yet (the 60" version, preferably)? I'm sure it can be mounted, but the 3.7" thickness has me a bit worried.

Thanks for any help.

I had a 4" and 68 lb plasma on the wall. I'm sure you can wall mount it but no,it will not look quiet as good as the thin edge lit sets. But the EH is pretty thin at the edges so it might trick the eyes a little. My in law has the 46 EH great picture on it today while watching the Yankees vs Red Sox.

I had the 50" eh6000 on my wall and it looked fine. It does look a bit odd from the side though but how often do we watch tv and look at the side? Just like Ticmxman said it's pretty thin along the edges of the tv so you won't notice the thickness too much. Good luck.

I'm interested in the 46" version of this model.
I'd like to wall mount it, however can find no mention of the vesa pattern anywhere here or on Samsungs site.
Can anyone shed some light on it?
My present 40" Sammy has a 200x200 mount I'm using, and would love to be able to do a simple swap using the same mount.
post #517 of 2546
I bought the 60" from Costco 3 weeks ago. I am very happy with it so far. We watch movies & TV via bluray player and Netflix, no cable or satellite.

I had a wall mounted 42" LG which I took down & used the same mounting hardware. Moved the hardware to the the new TV and put it up on the wall. I had to use different screws, but they were still in the bag from my original purchase of the mount a few years ago (save those extra pieces!). It's a Sanus mount with plenty of holes in it for some adjustability. I used different holes to raise the height of the TV without having to move the part that is attached to the wall. Easy peasy, only took a few minutes but was a 2 person job. It isn't much heavier than the old 42 and the mount claims to hold over 100 pounds.

It is hanging in a space about 5 feet wide between 2 bookcases, so I really don't notice the thickness at all, or the red border. It looks pretty as a picture!

I own the UN46EH6070 46" model and I had to look up the pattern in the manual for my wall mount. It is 400 x 400.

How do you like the eh6070? I've been unable to find any info on that set here or anywhere else for that matter. I had the 50EH6000 but returned it because the picture (flesh-tones, whites, and grays) looked too purple/violet. Is the active 3-D any good on the eh6070? I've heard passive is somewhat better than active but I'm not really interested in the eh6070 for the 3-D. Also, on all of the eh6000, there was dark-grey discoloration on the sides of the tv. Any of issues like this on the eh6070?

You must not have a disc player connected to your tv via hdmi connection. If you did and found it still had the purple issue, you could conclude the problem is not with the coax input but with the display.

I really like the EH6070. I don't see any of the issues you describe. No purple whatsoever and I don't see any discoloration of any kind. It handles motion very well, no blurring or ghosting that I can see. The 3D is good. It is very clear and I didn't see any crosstalk. Depth seemed good and it is adjustable. I truly don't care about the 3D though. The picture quality was all I was concerned about and it is very good to me. Colors look great and blacks are very good. The uniformity is excellent due to the full array (direct lit) backlight. I have a pretty critical eye when it comes to screen defects and this TV to me seems to have the least of any I have seen. No TV is perfect in my experience.

I originally had the 46" EH6000. I noticed motion blurring immediately. For example, on the Xbox 360 dashboard when scrolling from one screen to the next, I could see a trail on the image. The color black seemed to be the worst offender. It didn't matter how much I messed with the auto motion plus, it would not go away. When I tried the 6070, right out of the box, there was no motion blur at all. I do not notice any input lag either. When I hit a button, the action on screen is instant. One other thing is that it seems like the EH6070 is brighter than the EH6000 was with the same backlight and brightness settings. Not sure if that is good or bad but I do like a bright TV personally. So all in all I really like the EH6070 a lot.

Cool. Thank you for the info. I've been hunting this tv down for about two weeks now. I can't find it displayed anywhere so I can give it the once over. I know BB sells it but it doesn't seem right to buy a tv without actually seeing it first. I have PS3 and I never play games with AMP on. I don't think the games look too great with motion settings on. My refresh rate stopped working on my sammy b6000 and the Tech that came out told me not use the motion settings on video games.
post #523 of 2546
You're welcome. I wasn't very clear on the auto motion plus. It was only after having everything disabled that I tried the AMP. I usually turn all of that stuff off for games. I just tested it with the AMP to see if it would improve the ghosting and blur, and it did not. Sorry about that.

No worries. Glad you like the set. Where did you get your 6070?
post #525 of 2546
Purchased it at Sam's Club.

Do they have the 6070 being displayed? Did you happen to see if they had 55" version of the 6070 there? I just bought a Vizio M3D550KD at Sam's Club two weeks ago and I'm going to take it back on wed for a refund but if they have the UN55EH6070 there I might just exchange.
post #527 of 2546
They do have the 46" EH6070 on display at my Sam's Club. They don't have the 55" model though.

I'll check out the 46" this wknd. Since you've had both the eh6000 and the eh6070, which one has a better PQ? Or are they both same?
post #529 of 2546
I like the EH6070 a lot. It has a very nice picture and it just works better for me. The EH6000 is a good TV also but I could see motion trailing on it very easily. Maybe I just had a bad panel. Check it out at Sam's and hopefully you will like it. If not they have that great return policy.

Does this tv have good shadow-detail? Or does it cursh the blacks?

Thanks in advance. I'll check out the 46" at Sam's this wknd.

After having an LG 55LM7600 for 5 days, the flashlighting in the corners is too distracting for me for dark scenes. If I only watched bright scenes, this TV would be perfect, but most of my favorite movies are dark.

I feel like the Samsung EH60XX is my last hope before I submit to plasma (I would have already but I use my TV as a monitor for my computer, and I know image retention would drive me even more crazy than flashlighting.

I've read a lot of Amazon reviews on this TV that say there is no flashlighting (although the reviews said the same thing about the LG 7600).

Anyways, I doubt I will use 3D if it's not passive, so that is not important to me. I'm still debating between the 55 EH6000 and 55 EH6070 from Best Buy since they are the same price, or the 60 EH6000 for $100 more. Which will have the best PQ/blacks?
post #532 of 2546
The blacks on the EH6000 and the EH6070 are identical. Having both sets I did not notice any difference. They have good blacks but not great. If you move off center the picture does wash out somewhat and the blacks get grey. As far as crushing blacks, I don't feel like the EH6070 does. I have watched a couple blu ray movies and it seems to have nice detail in dark scenes.

I've never owned the EH6070 but the EH6000 has two discolored sections on the left and right-side of the screen. (all sizes of the eh6000) It's not too noticable but something to keep in mind. I'm actually going for the EH6070 since it's newer than the EH6000 series.

Cool. That was the one thing I was concerned with. I still haven't checked it out yet but I think today might just be the day I pull the trigger so long as the display model wows me.
post #534 of 2546
Closest forum I could find, about a year after buying a un55d6420uf I turned it on and see this. So I assume it's out of warranty, is it junk or worth trying to fix. Topics I read seems like a main board.

Picture won't post from photo bucket, I see no picture really, just hundreds of vertical lines.

I appreciate all the help. I just pulled the trigger and bought the 60" eh6000 off of Amazon a few minutes ago. It was a constant back and forth between this and the es6500. When it came down to it, I didn't want the slimmer, 3D es6500 $700 more than the eh6000. I just signed up for Dish Network and got a $100 gift card for Amazon, so I'm essentially getting the TV for a little over $1300. I think I'll use the saved money to get a nice soundbar or something.

Speaking of Amazon, does anybody in this thread have any experience with buying a HDTV from them? I'm wondering how I go about getting a warranty for my new purchase from Amazon. Anyway, I appreciate all of the help/recommendations in this thread as they all helped me make my decision.

It might be the panel. Or it might be the LVDS Cable. Panel might be pretty expensive to replace since your set is 55" but I'm not sure about the LVDS Cable. Might be better off just buying a new set. Good luck.

I replaced a vizio m3d470kd with the eh6070.

Samsung has better uniformity, no horrible banding, better 3d (no lines),
more adjustable settings like ability to control gamma.

I noticed the banding so easily with football or golf with the Vizio. With the Samsung I don't notice it.

Right now I'm running warm 2 which I kinda like with the white balance from lcdtvbuyingguide settings.

Haven't really calibrated ftl yet, but I'm happy with the settings so far.

So, are you seeing issues with screen uniformity on the eh6070?
post #540 of 2546
No. It's as close to perfect as possible. I see some darker lines on the outer edges with a grey background but haven't noticed it in anything I watch. During football I don't notice it when the screen is panning. Maybe because its darker and its on the edges. I even try to look for it and dont see it. I think because the Vizio was so aweful the Samsung seems a huge step up.
