Official Samsung UNXXEH6000 Owners' Thread - Page 32

post #931 of 2546
Well UN55EH6000 is already sold out in all the Best Buy stores in my area (within some 25-30 miles)!! I should have bought it when it went on sale a week ago for $879! I was told that they are not going to get anymore, not even for Christmas. I can only order online and get it shipped but I dont want to do that as I have to check the version on the box.

Anyway... Not that I badly need one. I have a 46" SONY. So will wait till next Thanksgiving smile.gif

Did that out of stock include the Model UN55EH6001FXZA (SKU: 6846823) they have as a Door Buster Deal in their Black Friday ad for $799.99? I guess I thought it wasn't available until then?

Armed with the information that I gleaned here I went to BB this morning looking for a 55EH6000. All the store had in that size were CH01 panels. I said no thank you. I then asked about 55EH6030. All of the 55EH6030 were TH01 panels. At $948 I could not say no and ordered the 55EH6030 for delivery on 12/2. This is going to be quite a change from my ten year old 50" Sony WEGA LCD projection TV. I hope I can find a new owner for the Sony as it has always run perfectly. Only maintenance was to replace the projection bulb after seven years.
I found the BB sales associate to be very knowledgeable. He knew about the differences between the different panels and that the Cxxx and Axxx were to be avoided. He also knew the Sharp panels had a limited viewing angle. I was quite impressed.
I probably should buy some Blu-Ray DVDs and maybe a 3D DVD. Any recommendations as to movies with spectacular video to see what the EH6030 can do on real world material?
Thanks again for all of your help and for preventing me from making a terrible purchase.

My experience is exactly the same. I am replacing my 7 year old Sony Wega LCD Rear Pro with the 55" 6030 that I got from the very knowledgeable guy at Best Buy.

I consider these programs reference material:

Netflix -
BREAKING BAD

Blu-ray -
Kubrick's THE SHINING
GAME OF THRONES SEASON 1
THE DARK KNIGHT
LORD OF THE RINGS (extended)
BLADE RUNNER

If those look excellent on your set, chances are you'll be happy with most other stuff. This Series 6 of Samsung HD sets needs careful calibration, but after half a year of ownership I'm happier than ever even though I only bought it when prices were beginning to drop!

I saw one UN55EH6001 box that they soon put away as black Friday deal. I am not sure what this 6001 model is. Anyone? There is also a 6003 model. I just dont understand why they make so many confusing models.

I dont feel bad because this UN55EH6001 had the CH01 version number on the box. So even if they have a big sale I dont want that version smile.gif

I got a UN65EH6000 today, from Amazon (which was a terrific piece of logistics to see). From other threads here at AVSforum, I've found a number of good settings. However, with a darkened room, I've got a fluffy white cloud covering most of the bottom half of the screen. I understand this is a backlight problem, but I haven't decided if I can live with it. Has anybody had this for a period of time? Does the effect go away? Does it bother you less?? It seems odd to me that less backlight intensity makes the cloud seem more pronounced. Any other settings that mitigate the clouding?

60 inch 6050 looks fantastic, and I've very happy with a Blu Ray input. But I'm having some problems with my HTPC. The output resolution is correct, but the image doesn't fill the entire screen. I get about a inch border on all sides. I've tried changing the label to PC but nothing seems to change. Any suggestions?
post #938 of 2546
Figured it out. My video card (Intel chipset) had a scaling option for horizontal and vertical. Adjusting these allowed me to fill out the whole screen in glorious 1080i.

Also, I got the 46" 6030 for $800 at BB and they threw in a 3D, Smart BD player as well for free.

Between the EH6000 and the EH6030, is there any change in terms of screen reflection/glare? The matte screen on the EH6000 is one of the main reasons I am considering it (the only other option I am considering is the Sharp LE640U).
If the EH6030 has the same matte screen as the EH6000, the 3D feature on it seems to make the decision easy. Thanks!

Re-posting pilfreak's comment above about the UN55EH6000 & UN55EH6001 variances he noted. I reread the BB website specs and also saw this:

Model: UN55EH6000FXZA (SKU: 4834412) $879.99 Regular Sale Price
Inputs: Include 2 HDMI, 1 component video and 1 composite.

Model: UN55EH6001FXZA (SKU: 6846823) $799.99 Black Friday Price
Inputs: Include 2 HDMI and 1 component video.

As noted the other day, BB had erroneously listed this UN55EH6001 originally as a Smart TV but I see they have since fixed their online ad and changed the description...still listed as a 240hz but we know they are both actually 120hz with a 240 CMR.

I'll have to check the service menu when I get home to be sure exactly what panel it has. Going to calibrate before making any judgements smile.gif

Outlaw420, I'm VERY curious to read your comments about this new EH55EH6000 set with the CH02 Panel you purchased last month!

There's been a lot of discussion in this great thread of EH series information about these panels so at the moment I'm still holding out on my purchase of the same 55" set from a sight unseen label source (like Amazon). And while another trip to my local BB is possible, it's still a dice rolling, gas guzzling option of ongoing futility.

Folks, I'm TOTALLY out of my technical league here and claim NO expertise in the matter....I just want a really nice 55" 1080p 120hz LED TV (without the frills) from a reputable company (like Samsung) for mostly television, sports and DVD viewing. I do know the UN55EH6000 set was very impressive to MY eyes even with the in store settings I viewed it on at BB and was probably a CH panel (all the ones in the warehouse in the 50" & 55" sets were CH series when I had them check a couple weeks ago).

I guess my question at this point to everyone is this...Am I being over cautious (aka paranoid) because I know about this potential "issue" (thanks to this one and only thread about it) or is this a 100% deal breaker without the "proper" panels, (i.e., TS or TH panels)??

I'm afraid I'm completely over thinking this panel issue so please...before I drive myself INSANE....help me or shoot me!!! lol
post #942 of 2546
Ditto on BBY vs Amazon. Just got off the phone with a mgr in large item purchasing and shipping and if I returned the 60" I'd be charged about $50 for shipping/restocking as a refusal/unwanted item.

Sales tax here on the Samsung UN55EH6000 at 877 = ~$72. Decided it's worth being able to check the label and I'll probably hit BBY, tonight or tmw morning and see if the $799 spl is there.

I'll print out the label info here and throughout these threads + give myself a list of the panel codes and give it a shot.

I purchased the UN60EH6050F at Costco in July for $1349. I went back to Costco yesterday and the same TV is selling for $1049. How common is this kind of deflation/depreciation in new TV prices? How much does an average set depreciate/deflate in price in one year? Had I known it would have been less, I would have waited 4 more months.

I read a lot of this thread about panel differences, which I was unaware of until today and my Samsung has an HS01 panel. I am very satisfied with the crispness of the picture, but as others have mentioned, side viewing angle is poor. I don't have any de-banding or line issues.

Since I am new to HDTV's with this one having replaced a 36" Toshiba from 1995, I was also unaware of firmware upgrades. How important is it to update the firmware?

hope you're right about the pq, just bought a 6030 on amazon!

The latest firmware fixed for me an annoying bug where Auto Motion Plus would go back to default settings between power ons. Haven't read any reasons why not to do it, so I'd say go for it.

Good afternoon, all. I picked up a 60EH6003 and have been trying to set up my surround sound to run with the normal TV mode (with no cable box, co-ax only). Is there a way to mute the speakers? Looking at the menu and into the options for sound, I don't have the "select speaker" that the owners manual says to select. Has anyone had any luck turning off the TV's speakers? Other TV's were pretty straight forward for that (even other Samsung's i've helped set up), but this one just seems to not want to cooperate.

Thanks in advance.

Picked up the UN55EH6000 back at the beginning of November. I've been very happy with it so far. I'm having Geek Squad come do their ISF calibration on it in a few weeks, but even now it looks incredible. I'm wondering if anyone can shed some light on something I'm curious about... Apparently these sets have a number of different panels, and it's kind of a crapshoot... What's the deal with the TH02 panels? Good or Junk? I have plenty of time left in my return window, so if I need to return it to save myself some heartache later on, I'd like to know now. My serial number starts with Z4NH4CZ if that matters.

Thanks!
post #949 of 2546
I was somehow able to order the 799.99 EH6001 from BB on Wednesday evening. It was available on the website but it wasn't letting me ship to my area and I couldn't send it to the store. I had to call my local BB and order it through them to an address in their shipping range but it worked out. Now I'm just praying that it's a good panel and I won't have to return it. I'm hoping the EH6001 as opposed to EH6000 doesn't mean it's a bad batch they're trying to get rid of. Both are available at BB's website for 799 and 879, which is suspicious.

I'm still not really sure what the panel versions mean. Can someone please explain what I should be looking for? All I know is TSXX is good and HSXX is OK.

I just set the volume on the TV speakers to zero. I was also looking for a way to disable them, but I couldn't find a way. My Directv remote is set so when I press the volume keys in any mode, it will set the volume on my receiver, not the TV.

Just got the UN55EH6001F from BB for $799. Guess what, like Susan Miller said not to buy anything until December 1st smile.gif, the TV wont power on. The same power cord works on the cable box. So looks like it is DOA. I pushed the cord but no luck. I didnt want to push it too much and break it. When I used the same cord with the cable box I just had to loosely hold it and the cable box would turn on. So TV is going back.

FYI the UN55EH6001 TV's in BB have CH01 or AH01 version numbers. I picked the AH01

I have the 6050 from Costco so there may be some slight menu differences. This is how I turned the TV Speaker off: Menu> Sound> Speaker Select> External Speaker. The other option is TV Speaker. When External Speaker is selected the tv speakers are turned off. Hope that helps.

Ok it is not DOA. The on/off button is at the bottom. But it is going back as I am not impressed. Even the HD channels are not that sharp. I have a 46" SONY (I guess it is EX400 model I got back in 2010. Even the non HD channels are so sharp. There is just no comparison at all. I guess I will use the SONY 46 in the office room and go back to a front projector. I still have the Infocus IN72 (6300+ hrs!).

best buy near me had a LOT of the 55" 6001 model number a few minutes ago... all the versions were AH or CH, though. are those the sketchy ones? I didn't pull the trigger, but the price was pretty good.

what's the deal with the versions? and why is best buy selling a 6001 instead of the 6000? THANKS!

When I returned the UN55EH6001, I saw another one being returned. That was also AH01. I also saw a 46" with CH01 returned. Dont recall which model it was. Dont bother with the 6001 model. Even at the sale price of $799 it is not worth the money. When you add tax and 2 year plan, the total comes to about $950 and it is just not worth that much money.

The BB near my place only had the UN50EH6000 on display and it looked so much better than the EH6001. Regular cable channels (non HD 4:3) were just awful on the EH6001 model. HD channels too were not that good. Only CNN was watchable. Like I said before, I like my 46" SONY EX400 model much better. Regular cable channels like HISTORY channel are great even if I use the zoom mode on my SONY.

BB was selling EH6000. It was sold out a few days back at all stores in my area with in some 25-30 miles. They did have the UN55EH6030 with version TH01. I didnt want to take the risk as the total was like $1200. Some said it has a slightly glossy screen. So I didnt want to buy it without seeing it at the store.

If BB gets the 55EH6000 version TS01 or TS02 for Christmas at the same price of $879, I would consider. it.

Yep they had a big lot of 55" 6001 models and all were AH or CH. I knew I would be returning it. Since no one mentioned the AH version here, I thought I would try it.

Looks like Samsung does bother to do any quality checks on the panels. Shouldn't they be checking how the other panels perform compared to their TS or TH panels? Why flood the market with lousy panels? They deserve to take back all the returned panels. I am sure they will sell them back as refurbished TV's for $990 after the holiday season and some unlucky guy is going to fall for that price.

I guess I would go back to SONY and read up if they also use so many panels. When I bought my 46" SONY 2 yrs ago , I didnt do any research at all. I was only researching the Samsung LCD/LED TV's. But when saw the Samsung and SONY side by side at BB, it was a no brainer. I returned 2 Samsung TV's and got the SONY.

i received my 65uneh6000 from amazon today. The box says it is a MH01 type panel.

Have not got the chance to hook it up yet!

Entering the diagnostic menu gave the panel as 65L1AOFD

Thanks Test Pattern for posting those links. I had just bought the UN40EH6000 today for $550.00 at Best Buy and was watching it at home with some displeasure due to the 'Soap Box Effect" and other annoying artifacts. After reading the review for the identical, except for 60 Hz, model UN40EH5000 , I have ordered this model ( $430.00 @ Sears) and will return the other. Saved a tidy sum and got a better picture to boot!

Unfortunately the 6003 model doesn't have an option for Speaker Select frown.gif I went back to best buy today and looked at the normal 6000 and compared it to the 6003. One of the reasons the 6003 is cheaper, is because they removed the option for speaker selection (and a few other things I assume). I talked to a rep that I had become acquaintances with, and he told me the 6003 does NOT have an option to turn off the internal speakers.

So, needless to say, since I prefer running surround sound I will be taking my unit back. All other aspects of this TV was great for the cost. I didn't have any bad screen issues, etc.; and would definitely refer it to someone with that one caveat. For what it's worth, the 6003 does not have any audio out . . .

Zargon, i greatly thank you for your response! Cheers!

I just picked up a Samsung UN55EH6001FXZA and so far I'm not happy with it. It has that horrible soap opera/video look and has frequent screen tears and jerkiness with any kind of fast motion. It is driving me nuts. I am so sorry I bought this thing. The 51" looked ok in the store, I had been looking at a Sharp Aquos 52" and was pretty happy with the picture on that, should have just gotten thta. I don't care for this TV at all. Even if I can turn off the image interpolation or whatever is causing the Mexican soap opera look, I'm not sure I'm interested in keeping this set.
