For example I had an AMVA panel on my first set before it died, It performed great with fast motion and no blurring with horizontal scrolling text or paning the camera in horizontal BUT it did leave a very small trace of ghosting, the samsung panel has no ghosting but it judders the text/scene.

This is all I know about how it works. As we have WOW cable I have not tried anything with DirectTV. Of course you can use an antenna as well for local stations. The tuner picks up all the Columbus stations just fine.
There are two audio outs: digital and analog.
Digital Audio: The optical digital output terminal will output Dolby Digital (when available) or 2 channel PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital when receiving Dolby Digital surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the TV tuner or a Samsung App via a network connection. The optical digital audio output will only output in 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI, RCA, or USB.
Analog Audio: The television features a 3.5mm (minijack) audio output for connecting the television to an analog 2-channel receiver. You will need a minijack-to-RCA adapter to make a stereo RCA connection between the television and your AV receiver. The TV's analog audio output terminals will output 2ch audio from any of the television's source inputs.

1. on the audio output... we will be receiving free hte320 speakers made by samsung, so will those speakers work as output sound from the TV?

2. does the 40EH5300 have local dimming?

Are you actually expecting local dimming at this price point?

What sets are you looking at that have local dimming?
post #786 of 2165
idk, are there models which have local dimming?

Those with real local dimming sets are at the higher end of the price spectrum.

post #789 of 2165
meaning i should not expect an LED tv with a price range of 500-600 dollars with local dimming?

Thank You

Dont worry to much about the panel lottery, IMHO.. the Samsung panel is not that superior aside from its slightly wider viewing angle.. anything apart from that there are other area's the samsung is poor while the other panels are better ( based on experience )

un32EH5300f

Is this tv discontinued? I can only seem to find it at online retailers.

Still not excited about buying such a device via support reason from a non-local store.

Do you buy them from web-retailers?
If so do they pay to return it for service?

On hdtvtest.co.uk the reviewer must have been drunk while testing the tv or maybe a christmas gift from santa.
"Highly recommended" on cmi panel...

I am replacing a 27” tube TV that the kids are using for gaming and cable TV watching. I am leaning towards the UN32EH4000 as it receives good reviews on CNET and CR. It seems that most retailers sell the 4003 and I have found the 4050 at Sam’s. From my research (much Googling) it appears that the differences between the 4000 and 4003 are wattage to the speakers and audio out.
I have been unable to find anything on the 4050 (at least impartial reviews).
The low wattage and lack of an audio out on the 4003 concerns me that I won’t have adequate sound for gaming.
Are there any other differences that may help me in my decision?

Thanks for any and all help.

guys hi, i just have some few concerns. i have the eh5300, and i am switching from 1 picture mode to another. ive used some of the settings ive found here. i just noticed 1 thing, most oh the calibration are for movie, standard and gaming mode. why is it that there is none for natural? i am just asking because i noticed that if i switch to natural its giving a more blacker color with black which i like more. is it possible to produce that under movie or standard? if it is possible could you help me with the calibration please.

another question is, i am only playing the movie from my hard drive which is connected through usb port. is there a very big difference if i play it through hdmi? tia

"Natural?" I've never seen that mode. Perhaps that is exclusive to the 5300? It's not on my EH5000.


If you play movies over the USB port, you can't adjust the picture settings AFAIK. So yes, there is a difference between playing it through HDMI where you can adjust the picture settings.
post #797 of 2165
i believe its on the 5300 only. i can adjust the settings even if i am using the usb port smile.gif any recommendation to make the black color blacker under movie or standard? because under natural mode advance settings is disabled.

I don't know. It sounds like it's doing some kind of processing, maybe like dynamic contrast or "black tone", which makes the image darker and pushes the near blacks into black.

If you have the other modes calibrated correctly actual black should be equally black, like when you look at a black screen. If a black screen shows up as dark grey on the other modes, your settings are off.
post #799 of 2165
its black but much brighter than the one under natural so which settings can i follow or try?

If you have the brightness set too high, then things the TV would normally display as black will display as dark grey instead.

The TV can only show a certain level of darkness for a pure black signal, and it will be the same across all modes. The only thing that can change it is the backlights and automatic backlight dimming (which doesn't happen in Movie mode).
post #801 of 2165
I'm sorry I didn't check and it's too late otherwise I would recheck for ya. I returned it because I decided I wanted to go with a 26" 720p because most PS3 games only use 720p anyway and the smaller the screen the better the image in my opinion. But all of the 26eh4000's in stock at the the store showed version cs01 on the box and I vaguely remember from earlier in this thread cs01 is on the loosers end of the panel lottery. So I picked their last 26D4003 from last year hopefully I will be satisfied with it.

Good luck with your panel research here and I'll be back if I decided to track down a 26eh4000 with a good panel. I'll probably still stick around until you guys find out more.luojie

First off thanks to Chicolom and his indispenable knoweldge as i knew nothing of Samsungs issues with versions-- I just got a UN55EH6000FXZA and the box lablel says TH02.... what do i have here now. The first TV BB delivered was a 55EH 6001 that had a red line vertically on the far right side.Crap right out of the box . I Had the Geek Squad guys here hooking up everything and he said he's had 4 bad 6001's in the last week ! They sold it to me and said it was a great TV and very dependable ,, lying bastards. They said nothing of what i now know to be countless returns of the 6001's. What the hell is going on here and is the 6000 TH02 panel i have now gonna be trustworthy. After hearing all about this lcd panel roulette i'm gun shy now. Where is my panel the TH02 made ? Samsung i believe, if i understood our local expert Chicolom. Thanks guys and will let you know the outcome when its unboxed and installed Sunday morning ! I have direct tv with HD , is my picture gonna be any good with this product? Plus i have the geeks configuring it all so that may help huh . PS got it for 799.00 ..after reading the riot act to the manager ,,, and if you didn't know if you buy something in BB for more than 500 bucks and pay cash and want to return it and get your cash back --forgetaboutit -- they send it in the mail --company policy --WTF --never use BEST BUY . I won't ever again and this tv may go back if it turns out to be a pile of sh!t ! Thanks Chi,your the man

I went into factory service settings to look at my panel type for my UN32EH5000. Found out it was 'A' and didn't enter any other menus. I exited the service menu by simply turning the TV off and then a few hours later turned my TV back on. The picture quality looked different and strange and I found entering the service menu put my TV on Dynamic Mode when it was on Movie Mode before.

Why did it do this? Is that normal?

I reset the TV to factory settings in my user settings menu and changed it back to movie mode and recalibrated the picture. The picture looks fine now but I'm still worried simply entering the service menu changed the original picture settings.

Can somebody ease my worries?

Entering the service menu resets the TV to default settings. I mentioned this in the link in my signature.

Ok thanks. But does simply entering the service menu void the warranty?

Just to add that the Picture Modes on the UE40EH5000 (Sharp panel) are Dynamic, Standard, Natural & Movie
post #808 of 2165
I'm looking at a UN40EH5000f with the HS03 panel... Someone is selling one NIB that they won. I'm considering it as a bedroom TV, but I'm afraid of the HS03 panel. Looks like lots of issues with it. If I can get a good deal, what do you think?
post #809 of 2165
It's interesting that the Non U.S. version of the EH5000 (UExxEH5000) has "natural" mode as a pictures setting whereas the UNxxEH5000 does NOT.

The UE version is also up to firmware version 1022.0 updated in December, while the UN version is only at 1012.33 not updated since June. confused.gif

I doubt the UE firmware is safe to put on the UN sets.

I just got a UN55EH6000 , TH02 , form BB here in FL. Geek Squad installer said TV was made in Sept. 2012 and it is an S-PVA Samsung made panel . All hooked up and has a great picture. I paid 799.00 for it , and got this deal after i recieved a UN55EH6001 the first time and it was defective (red line down the right side ) ! All in all , i'm still messing with the settings , but it looks good to me. Still wondering if having the TH02 version makes any difference , i guess time will tell huh !!!
