I couldn't find much info on this series, so started this thread for the few owners on AVS. I am still putting it through it paces,so will give my impressions in a few days.

My father has this TV. Pretty good picture. Does have a fair amount of DSE and some horizontal banding. Coming from a Trimluminous Sony the colors are only so so by comparison. One of the things that does impress me about this TV is it's off-angle viewing. Better than the Sony I have.

If Samsungs rep and technicians are to be believed if you are lucky enough to find a later series panel version made by Samsung these issues are gone. I have the TU02 panel which is said to be a revised panel and issues with off angle viewing,DSE,banding and motion issues are addressed. Having had a 46" F7100 (TS01 panel) late last year I can say at least in my case the F6800 is a vast improvement.

Well the off-angle viewing with his set as far as I'm concerned is as good as it gets outside of plasma, but it has the other issues. I'll have to check to see what his panel is, but I'm skeptical that all the revised panels are free of issues. I've had a couple Samsungs myself that were supposed to be the "good" panels, and they were no better than the "bad" ones.

The only thing I wish the display had was the ultra clear panel, instead we have the semi-gloss panel similar to LG's filter. While It cuts down on glare it dulls the image a bit,not a deal breaker just an observation.

Picking one of these up shortly. Have a couple of questions:

  1. How's the remote? The touchpad seems like an interesting concept but I suspect more frustrating on a day-to-day basis. Thinking I may have to replace it with a Harmony or try to eBay a 'regular' remote (like the one that comes with the 6300 (assuming most/all functions would work on the 6800...)
  2. Does the IR Blaster support input from STB? I understand it's designed so you use the Samsung remote to control the STB, but I'm wondering if it passes the signal received from a non-Samsung remote


Thanks
