Just picked up the 65" and so far so good. Bezel is really thin so the wife is happy! :) can't wait for some of you guys to pick one up and post your calibration settings. I usually like what you guys come up with.

Can one of you guys answer a couple questions for me? I love the sound of this series, and it looks like a great fit for my application, except for one thing: I'm not interested in any of the "smart" TV features. Like many of us, I'll be hooking it up to a receiver, using a single HDMI input, and I'll never change it. For streaming, I'll use an AppleTV.


How was is it to overlook the smart TV features of this series? Also, any drawback to using a Harmony remote as opposed to Samsung's included remote?


Thanks in advance.

I, myself, would not look for TVs specifically that are "non smart" TVs. By doing that you take a TON of options off the table because smart TVs are becoming the standard. If you choose not to use the smart features of the tv that's fine, but I would not avoid the tv because it has the smart features.


As far as using a harmony remote, I see no reason why this would be a problem. The remote does have a couple TV specific buttons, but you can program these to the harmony remote as any button you want or make them soft buttons.

Thanks, yeah, I worded my question poorly, I guess. I'm not looking for a "non smart" TV per se, but one where it's easy to not use or disable the "smart" features. 

 

Eg. I've heard of TVs that advertise at you, that encourage you to use their interface to tweet while watching, etc. I don't want any of this. I can't think of a way to be more specific, so I'll assume it's going to be largely up to personal preference. I'll order one and check it out. Seems like those who own the TVs, currently, are very happy with them.

Hi all,


I just picked up a UN65H6300A at Costco in the SF bay area. A few questions if you can:


1. From all appearances this model is same as the H6350. Can anyone confirm or deny that? There's precious little information anywhere about the H6300. In fact, Apps functionality doesn't even work yet as apparently Samsung's servers aren't ready.


2. My local Costcos only have 65" and 55" in this model. I'd prefer a 60" for my space. Anyone know if a 60" will be available thru Costco? I prefer to buy through them for the hassle factor.


3. More of a general question for late model Samsung owners: Is there a technique for changing TV settings using a universal remote? I use a receiver for all inputs and for example I'd like to switch the TV to Game Mode when I select the game console's input on the receiver. Do any universal remotes have backdoor codes or anything for settings, or do people just program up the menu navigation? Any pointers here would be appreciated. I haven't explored the Samsung's universal remote functionality yet.


FWIW, my first impression of the H6300 is quite positive. I had to turn off the auto-brightness because it got it totally wrong. It kept dimming the picture way down in my bright room with the TV between windows on the same wall. Once I turned off the auto backlight, motion interpolation, and set the picture to "Standard", I tweaked brightness and backlight manually, and it looks pretty good to my eyes. Haven't done much night-time viewing yet. Caveat: I'm a totally untrained video enthusiast. My eyes are little less calibrated to color issues but highly sensitive to detail, resolution, artifacts, motion, judder. Last TV was a 3yo smaller Samsung LED which I liked pretty well.


Thanks in advance.

Doing a compare at the Samsung page, looks like some of the Smart features arent there.


Heres a link to the product page, I was also eying it at $1150 for the 55. Looked like it had better blacks then the LG LB6100 I picked up.

I swear that series wasn't on the site yesterday. Thanks for the link!


Edit: After looking at it, the spec differences that emerge from comparing the 6350 and the 6300 seem to just be data inconsistencies.

I'd like to know how the impressions are on this tv. I plan on picking one up at Costco to give a whirl. I was really interested in the 6400 series though

HI guys. I am in shopping for 48" tv. I see there are some sort of chrome bezel running along the bottom of the TV. Similar to F8000


Does it distract while watching the TV? Any help would be appreciated.

Not at all. It's very subtle

Hello everyone.

 

A new owner of a Samsung 40" 6350 model for my upcoming man cave. I have a question as I originally purchased one from a club store in late March but then this week I was in an electronic store and saw the 6350 model but the bezel was much thinner than mine. Curious I notice the model I have is UN40F6350 versus the UN40H6350 I see at the electronic store. Further research showed the F is for a 2013 model and H is for a 2014 model. I look on the back of my F model and it shows it was manufactured in April 2013.

 

So I return the UN40F6350 model to the club and pick up the UN40H6350 model from the electronic store (had a 10% new move coupon to make even sweeter :). The new model was manufactured in February 2014 and the bezel is really nice and thin.

 

How did I get the first one made in April 2013? I thought the 6350 model is new for 2014?
