Samsung UNXXF6400 Thread - Page 4

post #91 of 785
I just received word that is my 55" was delivered today.

If anyone wants me to do any sort of testing on here, let me know (but please be descriptive in how exactly the test will be executed (gaming lag, etc..) since I am still very green when it comes to HDTV's.

Wow. The 75" was on Amazon, fulfilled by OneCall, for $4000, well below the UPP price of $4500. They said there were four in stock and then they were gone. Poof.

I wonder who grabbed them cool.gif

Edit: the OneCall.com site still shows them in stock at that price. And fwiw although they are not one of the sites that amazon and best buy will automatically price match, I have purchased a ton from them over time...receivers, etc and have not had any issues with them.

So does the 120Hz native refresh rate mean that these TVs will not be able to show true 24p 3D content without 3:2 pull down? Since each eye will get only 60Hz? I guess 240Hz is the minimum spec to deliver 3D footage in native 24p, but I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has experienced watching 3D in 24p with 3:2 pull down. How noticable/annoying is it (if at all)? I was seriously considering the 80" Sharp 844 due to sheer size but always felt the black levels were poor especially at off angles - which is the case for some part of the screen even when you are sitting dead center :-). A couple of days ago I saw the Samsung 75" F6400 side by side with an 80" 844 and the black level improvement / off-angle performance of the Sammy was immensely better. I was impressed to say the least, so I'm very interested in this set.

I haven't played with the 3D yet, but if the F6400's off-angle viewing was "immensely better" than the Sharp, then don't even think about the Sharp!

My only complaint with the F6400 is the viewing angle. You definitely can't see the contrast shift on the edges of the panel from dead center, or even from extreme ends of my couch, but it is noticeable if you walk a few feet to the side. It still looks good from extreme angles, but you can tell the difference.

Run the universal remote setup and add the new device, and now you can control all your cable box settings with your TV remote (guide, channel info, etc.).

Okay.. Thank you.. But, what the difference IR out and Anynet on Samsung? I've read from the website but still don't know how to operated them and the benefit for me..
post #96 of 785
Anynet is just for Samsung devices. It lets you "network" and control other Samsung devices (TVs, sound bars, blu-ray players, etc.) via each other's remotes.

The IR extender lets you use your Smart Touch remote to control things like your cable box...but not just control as in change channels and turn up the volume, but also use your remote in place of the other device's remote to do everything it can do. For example, all of my cable box's functions are accessible via the Smart Touch remote (info, guide, menu, etc.).

Anynet and the IR Extender together basically allow you to use your Samsung Smart Touch remote to control everything; TV, sound bar, blu-ray, and cable box.

My 65" was made in Mexico. So far so good to report no clouding or flashlighting. Picture quality is excellent very happy. Viewing angles arent really that bad...could be better but expected for lcd. More to come...going to watch Lincoln on bluray on this rainy sat in NY.

You could alwys try Buzz' calibrated settings from the F8000 thread as a starting point. It'd be interesting to hear how they look on the 6400 at the very least.
post #100 of 785
I've been looking thru all of the forums for the current model year TV's and it seems like the 6400 will be a good match for me with everything considered. I'm going to be putting the TV in a Man Cave/ Game room I'm currently remodeling. There wont be any direct light on the screen and I will be seated directly in front of the set maybe 9-10 feet back. What I've been reading as the biggest complaint is the off angle viewing. Since like I said I will be sitting directly in front of it and want something that does a little bit of everything without breaking the bank (after making the wife REALLY mad with the cost of the remodel) and a plan to watch 2D and 3D movies, Sports and Games, I've been trying to decide between the 7100 and the 6400. Does this sound like the better of the two for me. **I will say that I'm just not a plasma guy, even though light isn't a problem.
post #101 of 785
I've had the the 55" set for two days now and am really enjoying it. I will hook up my PS3 and test out some blu-rays & games tomorrow. The Detroit Wings game today looked fantastic (but its too bad they didn't show up).

Watching the Champions League final though, the soccer ball at times seemed to have a flash around it, which I found odd.


The biggest concern for me might be an issue through Direct TV (not sure yet). I watched Moneyball on HBO, which looked great, just now, Casino came on and I noticed pixels that seemed to flash/flicker randomly. I mean, it wasn't distracting, but noticed it from time to time when scenes were transitioning

Does anyone know if that is normal? I've never seen that on a TV before.




I haven't changed the factory picture settings yet.

I know how you feel, just be patient it will be there lol; before you know it out of the box and on the wall.

I'll check them out....
Here are mine so far...out of the box the color was kind of saturated...favoring yellows and reds.
Standard
backlight 5
contrast 90
brightness 42
sharpness 75
color 43
tint middle (0)
dynamic contrast low
black tone darker
flesh tone 0
color space haven't messed with them yet
white balance :only ones I have changed are b-offset and b-gain both 22
gamma 0
motion lighting off
color tone cool (whites look white not yellowish as with standard)
digital clean view auto
mpeg noise auto
film mode auto 2
auto motion plus clear (this was the best; gave the most natural unprocessed picture)
all power saving features off.....did not like the outcome.

these are my settings hopefully you guys like...I do..
post #106 of 785
SinisterJ: nice! Yours is the first 75" in home as far as I know. Keep feeding us your findings!

SMO5007 (and Sinister): I'd be interested to hear your findings re the various dimming functions across picture modes. Apparently, Movie mode eliminates and/or reduces the worst of these, at least in the 8000.

Wow, your setup is incredible!


The flickering pixels I noticed seemed to be the cable connection. None of the Game of Thrones on-demand episodes had this issue.

Toyed around with some Halo, and didn't notice any lag. I probably at some point should tinker with the settings, see what the optimal settings are for each (movies/sports/games).

Still not used to watching movies with the soap opera effect.

Nice.. Big thanks for answer and explanation. It's really helpful. Gonna try it after this.. See if things work and run normally..
post #110 of 785
So looking thru other reviews, please tell me if I have this right. If I watch a movie in 3D on this set it defaults to the 120hz soap opera look at cannot be turned off ?? I didn't enjoy watching the Hobbit in the theater at 48 fps because of that very reason. Somehow when a movie looks soap operaish it just takes me out of the experience.
post #111 of 785
Hey I am from norway and we use some different models numbers here then you guys.

But for the moment I am thinking of buying this:

http://www.komplett.no/k/ki.aspx?sku=777078
Wich should be an UN65F6400 for you guys

or buying this:
http://www.komplett.no/k/ki.aspx?sku=757834&cks=ASS&assoc=26FB581C-3DAA-4F6A-AEA0-8720D71DBD87
Wich should be the 55 " model in the 8 series from 2012.

What do you guys think?

Or should I go for an entierly different model?

I will be using the tv for gaming PS4 to.

After new Samsung 65" f6400

Very nice set up!

Over the Memorial Day weekend I purchased a Samsung 60" F6300 at Sears. The question I have, and why I quoted your pictures, is that in the second picture you posted, the edges of the screen - about an inch or so out from both sides of the bezel are lighter in color. Now, this is my first LED TV.... Am I to assume this is normal? My screen looks almost exactly like that. It's an HS01.

thanks
post #113 of 785
Thanks for the comments guys. I am really liking this TV so far, although it does seem a little jittery at times in some scenes. I input SMO5007's settings and it made the picture look much more real the only seeting I bumped up was baclight (I used 8 instead of 5) for a little brighter picture. Thanks SMO5007 for the settings!! Here is a pic taken with my IPhone.

FYI Best Buy has this 75" TV on sale through today for $3999.00

Still jittery after using those settings? How are the various motion settings set? And can you describe it more please?

Also, on the price, Amazon has it there as well. Samsung must have lowered the UPP. Funny enough though, OneCall is still back up at $4500 even though they were the first to sell it for $4000 last before selling out...

EDIT: these are snipped from Buzz' calibrated settings from the F8000...

Maybe they will remove the jitter?

Dig Clean View - off
Mpeg - off

Auto Motion Plus - Custom - Blur 10 - Judder 5 - LED Clear Motion Off

EDIT2: just found out my set is due Friday or Monday. Hoping for the former of course.

........

It seems as though there isn't any way to use a universal (Harmony One) remote to control this tv at all since it seems to be bluetooth?

The family is used to pushing one button for dish, blu-ray, roku, netflix, etc. turning on and selecting the right inputs on the tv, receiver, components, etc. It will be a tough sell to get the wife to push a different button to switch components, then more buttons to selection functions.

Possibly does this remote have any way to do macros? After reading the manual there were very few details on using it this way. Ditto the ir extender. Hard to believe they would take away that ease of use.

Hopefully there is a way......

It just seems to have a small motion jitter on certain scenes It could be my source because I have noticed it most on direct tv. I will check my settings when I get home. Thank for posting from Buzz's settings do you have the link for his full settings? Have been looking for them I will give them a try. I get some more info when I get home tonight.

I think he links to them from right at the beginning of the F8000 thread (there are two threads...can't recall which sorry).

On the remote - is it really BT?? That will really bum me out if I can't use my harmony.


EDIT: found this in the harmony database. German obviously, and for whatever reason...but the set is definitely in there. On the site it comes up with a big green check box which didn't copy and paste along with the text. So it must have both ir and bt capability. Here's the link. TV is the first thing in the drop down...
