Fleshtone:0
Dyamic Contrast: off
film mode:auto
motion lighting : on
smooth motion processing : custom (blur reduction=0; judder reduction=10)

this is for TV and sports . I'm not sure about this for movies. try and let me know what you think, I'm not a professional, just an enthusiast

update: best motion processing mode seems to be "Clear" , custom setting above started juddering rolling text at bottom of ESPN screen.
Also: Turning down Flesh Tone setting half way gives more much more realistic (not over saturated caucasian) flesh tones

I agree that auto motion plus set to clear is best.

Hey guys I'm new around here. I was just wondering if any of you knew the size of the screws I need to wall mount this tv. I bought a wall mount but the screws it came with are way too small. Any help would be appreciated.

Its an m8 machine screw. 30mm length works perfect. Home depot sells a 2 pack for about .80.

how is the off-axis viewing on this set? I have an L-shaped layout and most of the viewing is done lying on the couch about 15ft from the TV and 8 ft to the side from the screen center.

Thanks man I really appreciate it.

Anyone try and register the TV on Samsungs site? Model number isn't listed, but there is a UN65FH6003F listed - not sure if I should choose that one. When I go through the steps, and enter my serial #, it says TV was manufactured on 10/31/13 so seems logical.

I have a secondary sofa that has a strong off-axis angle, so I have been looking for displays that work well in a bright environment and have good viewing angles. The viewing angles ought to be good on this set as it is direct lit. Not as good as Plasma but better than edge-lit. To confirm, I checked out the performance in person today and they were good. Noticeably better than the Sharp 60LE650 and the Vizio E601i (both edge-lit).

Agree with the post above. Angle viewing is rather good. Way better than the sharp 550 i tried. I watch in my kitchen at about a 65 degree angle if not more and I see perfect.

The only issue Ive found with this set is if I walk up to it I can clearly see pixelation especially on black images. I sit about 15 feet back and it looks great but up close is no bueno. Thats with a blu ray or cable.

Can somebody kindly measure the box this TV arrived in?

Just got this Tv. Very impressed so far. My son and I moved his 60 inch this Sunday and killed it. Don't ask how but just say it was very stupid. So I worked a deal and gave him my three year old 60 in Sony smart tv and bought this one. I don't need the smart features either as I use Apple TV, and now the new ps4 which is Awesome.

The picture is basically the same. Guess I will have to figure out how to upgrade the software with the USB. I got 45 days to take it back if I don't like it. I'll try your settings.

What did you do with the led motion plus? Also are you sure about that sharpness being 6?
post #74 of 479

 It's not smart TV or 3D (I don't need these) so I went for it. It may be a budget LED, but the picture is very bright and sharp. The color out of the box was not great, but there are lots of controls including advanced controls for the color space and white temperature, etc.

wingzfan61, I realized that you were the one giving me advice on the 60LN5600 which I also tried - looks like we are on a similar trajectory! This "pixelation" you report has me concerned, I sit about 10ft away from the TV! Tomorrow I'll get my own chance to dial things down with the Disney WOW disk and I'll compare the LG, the Samsung and my Mitz DLP side by side. Will take photos if they reveal anything useful.

What Samsung panel did you end up with (referring to the panel lottery). More importantly, how did you score the Samsung for $860!! That's a steal.

My panel is an AUO panel according to the L in the service menu.

Heres a couple shots. First is 15 feet back and 2nd is 1 foot.
Edit: the service menu reset my calibration for the 2nd picture so I pulled it. Gotta reload my settings now.

I sit 10 feet away from this set and am not seeing any pixelization for the record.

The red behind your equipment is very cool wingz
post #78 of 479
Oh and as for the price. I was in line to return my LG and the guy 3 people up was returning the samsung while his wife was telling the customer service woman how "hes not allowed to buy stuff like this without her and that they have a big enough tv, there was no reason he should have bought another one". He was not happy at all. They gave me his as an open item because the wife supposedly shredded the manual in protest. The poor guy literally didnt get to turn it on.
post #79 of 479
Ok picture 1 is 1 foot away. Picture 2 is 9 feet.

I think the pixelation i see is just a bad channel and not true hd. Maybe an upscaled sd signal. i just looked at superman on blu ray and it looks gorgeous.

I think at 10 feet youll be very happy. I see no pixelation at that distance either.

And thanks about the light comment.

This is getting interesting now. I expected this set to be pretty bad but it *seems* like people are relatively happy with it. Most of the bad reviews on BB's site are related to the poor connectivity but that hardly matters to most of us. I only need one HDMI in and out and thats it.

Stil waiting for a few more reviews to come in but Im damned close to trying this thing out. I just cant believe Im going to try and replace a 50" KURO with a black friday special LED TV..... crazy..... biggrin.gif

Can someone chime in on the black level performance? I dont expect plasma-like blacks but I cant live with the purple look or even worse - shadow detail loss/crush.

did you try turning black setting to "darkest". That produces inky blacks. other settings produce blacks with some blue and the pixelation you refer to.

This set has awesome black level. You need to set the BLACK TONE tool to "darkest". This gives inky blacks and preserves shadow details best without need to increase brightness.

Also, I played with this a bit and it seems motion processing can be set to CUSTOM with settings of 7 for both blurring and judder control with smooth and detailed results on both sports/TV and movies. i think I like this better than the CLEAR setting.

Off axis viewing is great. I didn't know that those people buying edge-lit designs were trading off their off-axis viewing for 1.5 " depth. This one is 3.5 inches- still clearly a flat screen that will look good (on wall or on the stand)

The stand and remote. uggh. I wasn't sure the TV was going to be held up by that, but it appears as if it probably will hold up (minimally). remote doesn't have button for motion processing. it has a tools button, but you can't get directly to the motion processing. This is just stupid. I'll have to find and live with one setting on that because it is just too many touches of the buttons to change back and forth between TV/sports and movies.... I wonder if Samsung can software patch this and put motion control on the remote tools button? too much to ask?

You need a hramony remote with macro settings. Makes this sort of thing so much easier.

LED motion plus setting: I was using CLEAR, but I think now CUSTOM with 7 blurr and 7 judder redcution setting is best and seems to work for sports/TV and movies equally well.

Sharpness: I was using 6, but anything between 0 and 5-6 looks the same to my eyes with AVIA test patterns.

Hopefully, somebody with real calibration expertise and equipment can do a full review of which picture mode to provides best (most accurate) color and greyscale performance and provide settings. I'm just an enthusiast and there are lots of advances settings that could be used to maximize the monitors performace (grey scale , white balance, etc) before even playing with controls we are talking about here (so far).

Great - thanks for the reply. As for the off-angle we'll have to see about that since my previous experiences with LCD was that its a big issue but perhaps they've fixed that with newer ones?

I went ahead and grabbed one from my local BB and will get it after work. With the return policy I have nothing to lose. If it will hold me over until OLED gets cheap and big....Ill be very happy. smile.gif

I joined AVS just to throw some input into this topic. I also bought this TV and like always I asked if the guy could do better than the listed price. He said he would ask his manager. Turns out the model did not sell so hot and they gave it to me for 899$ + tax. So I encourage everyone to ask for a discount. 

 

The second reason I joined was to say how much I appreciate the input you all have given on the calibration settings. I was about decided on returning the panel due to overall poor picture. I am hoping using the settings posted here I can get a satisfactory image. 

 

PLEASE I beg if anyone is reading this and feel's they have achieved an awesome picture, join the forum and post all your settings. Every detail, please. 

 

I have some major complaints about the display but I am going to save them until I try the settings posted here. Also would it help if I posted my receipt showing the discount, maybe you guys could get a price match?

 

Thanks again and please keep the calibration settings coming!

I'm in a similar boat, albeit, my Sammy 71f isn't quite a KURO, but I'm teetering on whether or not I want to try this unit out. Let me know what you think if you do pick one up. So far, the reviewers in here seem to give it a thumbs up, and I value their knowledge and opinion more than most.

BTW Best buy has some sort of Cyber Monday discount going on. I'm not sure of the particulars, but something about in store pick up, and $10 off per $100, up to $500, or $50 worth of discounts.
