I live in Mexico and picked up the 40" last week from Costco. It is labeled as UN40KU6000FXZX.
I am coming from a 2014 LG 43" 3d IPS that I woke up to with about 3 corrupt lines of pixels running the width of the screen about two inches from the top which would change all sorts of colors and constantly blink in and out.
I wasn't keen on the IPS panel over VA when purchased but wanted the passive 3d after watching Avatar at a friends house and loved it.
So after trying to clean all the ribbons inside the LG to no avail I went that afternoon and bought this Samsung. These are the blacks I never could have dreamed of getting from the IPS. That IPS glow always bugged the s#!t out of me but I was hoping to ride it out for a couple of more years until 40" range OLED or QD with 3d made it to the shelves (I'm limited in tv space). Now 3d is dead except on the super high dollar sets. Such is life.
I use this KU6000 as a monitor/HTPC through HDMI 1 / PC with a DP to HDMI 2.0 active dongle (R9380X) ,Windows 10 utilizing madVR in potPlayer. Everything looks great with tv settings of 6-42-98-60 with UHD color enabled and HDMI Black Level set to normal. I downloaded a striking UHD Demo and paused it at a certain point that had a bright outdoor patio and large double door opened to a darker indoor scene. I found the NORMAL setting on HDMI Black Level didn't wash out detail as the two other options while still maintaining a great contrast. (Just my preference).
I game a bit and have ROTTR and The Witcher 3 installed and tested both these games and found no lag problems whatsoever for these type of games. The difference I did see was the comparison to the 1080p LG IPS. I push my R9380X to play at 1440p on these two games (using Super Resolution on the LG) to maintain good frames and this VA panel blows the IPS out of the water on contrast. The color difference is probably minimal but with such a contrast difference it truly makes everything ,including colors, so much better.
I also transferred the UHD Demo to a thumb drive to check out what it looked like "raw" and it looked fantastic. The Auto Motion Plus worked as advertised, and looked strikingly like SVP (Smooth Video Project) for pc. Interpolation to the max.
I paid the equivalent of $435 U.S. for this set, and though I'll miss gaming and watching movies in 3d for a while (hopefully), I have no regrets buying this set. Just beautiful.
