This review is of the first 24 hours of use on our new UN50H6400.Setup was fairly easy. Onscreen display guides through the basics of source and internet connections. It did have some issues connecting via WiFi. My wireless router is dual band with both 2.4 and 5GHz bands with the same SSID. I ended up having to rename the 5GHz band SSID in my router before the TV would connect. *Update* 03/30/2014 We ended up connecting the TV via hardwired connection to the network for higher bandwidth streaming 3D playback as the WiFi could not keep up.Initial picture quality is amazing. This is coming from someone who has been used to watching a smaller and much earlier model of LCD HD TV. The contrast between lights and darks and the details that can be seen in high contrast scenes is something I noticed right off. The 3D demos available on the TV also looked amazing as did a couple I tried from Netflix. The simulated 3D looked surprisingly good as well, testing it on a couple of video sources. I'm not sure I would want to watch most shows this way, but it works better than I would have thought. I have yet to calibrate this TV properly, but will update when I have a chance to delve into the advanced settings more thoroughly.*Update* 03/30/2014Had a chance to do a full calibration with a colorimeter. The 10-point white balance worked very well requiring significant adjustments to red and some to blue above 50%, although there was not a significant difference in grays at each step < 50%, while grays above 50% were fairly similar as well. The 2 point calibration would probably get most people close enough. That said, once the 10-point was complete, the white balance looked fantastic at all levels.Read more ›
Thin profile, thin bezel design, unique remote, excellent picture quality. The default picture profiles unfortunately are horrendous. I can't watch any darker screens without turning off all the lights trying to get rid of any glare on the screen. Going from Movie to Standard to Dynamic didn't really help much either until I found a website that publishes video calibration settings. These are what I found for the UN60F6400 (2013 model). It works so much better. I don't need to flip back and forth between settings for night or day time scenes. Good luck!Picture Mode MovieBacklight 16Contrast 96Brightness 47Sharpness 13Color 50Tint G50/R50Advance SettingsDynamic Contrast OffBlack Tone OffFlesh Tone 0RGB Only Mode OffColor Space Auto10pt White Balance OnGamma +1Expert Pattern OffxvYCC OffPicture OptionsColor Tone Warm2Digital Noise Filter OffMPEG Noise Filter OffHDMI Black Level Normal (Low if available)Film Mode OffAuto Motion Plus OffLED Motion Plus Off10pt White Balance OnInterval Red Green Blue1 0 1 02 1 0 -23 0 0 24 0 0 05 -1 0 +16 0 -1 07 -1 -2 -28 0 2 19 1 0 010 2 1 0White BalanceSetting ValueR-Offset 25G-Offset 25B-Offset 27R-Gain 19G-Gain 22B-Gain 21Screen AdjustmentPicture Size Screen Fit
I am a bit of a techno-file and this TV was an upgrade from a 6 year old 46" Samsung LCD. Anytime you purchase a TV these days you roll the dice a bit as far as quality of your particular set. I'm happy to say in my case I have no issue. I don't even have issues I expected I would.I have...No stuck or dead pixels No flashlighting at all. No clouding, a dark screen is perfectly even. Colors are accurate and vibrant. I disabled the eco-sensor right away since it dimmed the screen far too much.The menu system is very full featured with just about every setting or feature you can think of easily modified.Blacks are not perfect but they are far better than most LCD's. I am fairly critical and the black level is perfectly acceptable.I did notice a very minor case of the Dirty Screen Effect. However 99% of the time it can't be seen at all.The SMART features are very well implemented. Youtube streams perfectly and apps open up and navigate with reasonable speed. I was able to plug a USB into the TV and watch the HD videos taken with my Sony camcorder as well as other video files with no issue. This is a big convenience.I must confess I do love 3D,and this sets 3D is amazing! The 3D experience varies by source type. A good 3D Blu-ray is every bit as good as the theater. The first 3D Blu-ray movie I played was Prometheus and it was spectacular! The detail is so razor sharp and yet with good depth and pop. In viewing store demo's I really thought I preferred the passive 3D more than the active but I wouldn't want to lose any of that beautiful detail this set can deliver. Active it is then! The glasses are very light weight and fit over my prescription glasses very comfortably. It's not a feature that I will use very often but when a movie I want to see comes out in 3D, that's what I'm going to watch, It really is as good as the theater.
