Customer Reviews

5 out of 5 stars Outstanding Picture Quality
Pros: Excellent picture clarity, amazing colors, 120hz works exceptionally well with progressive scan (ie 720p, 1080p)Cons: Expensive, backlighting (actually, it's edge lighting on this model) is a little uneven in the corners. While watching credits at the end of a movie, you can see light and dark patches when the background is supposed to be solid black. This only occurs with really dark images and is a function of the TV being so thin.Overall: I've had the TV for several months with no problems. I'm really happy with this purchase and would make it again.
4 out of 5 stars Great TV if one can figure out how to use it.

My family and I just love this TV, particularly for watching sports. We looked at a lot of LCD and Plasmas but saw none that gave us the sense of depth this one does. It is like 3D. Moreover, our family room is also a sun room during the day but the picture is just as strong in the day time as it is when the room is dark. The viewing angle is comparatively wide. We see no appreciable drop off when it is viewed at an angle. It is large enough that my wife can view it from the adjacent kitchen with ease.Learning how to use its features and to set it up is another matter and that is the one gripe I have with the TV. Samsung only provides a four page manual which tells the owner nothing. Instead it includes a flash drive which contains a manual for its use but it took me over three weeks to realize what the flash drive was for. The manual does not show the available ports or how things are to be connected to the TV. I finally figured it out by trial and error and got the flash drive connected. Finding out how to use it however, was again a lot of trial and error. Once I was able to read the pages, it was hard to read, mostly grey on black (I hate black-you can't see where anything is on black). Figuring how to page the manual on the TV isn't easy. Samsung provides numerous steps to take but the user has to leave the Manual screen to go through the steps and unless the user writes out all the steps, it is a tiresome process to follow the steps.So I tried using the flash drive on my computer. Well the manual is in a strange format so it will not open normally. Windows searched for a driver that would allow viewing the manual and found one which I downloaded and installed The one I found that worked was from IrFanView but one must also download all the plugins before it will work.Read more ›
3 out of 5 stars AMAZING.... sometimes. Love- Hate
Andrew Carney
What's great about it: Light Weight, Looks Stunning, Great FeaturesWhat's not so great: Off angle viewing, dark scene viewing, corners glowing, backlight is not uniform"I WISH I LOVED THIS TV!After being a plasma fan for years, I gave an LED-LCD a chance. Set-up was great. Features-a-plenty! Picture quality... AMAZING!!!.... sometimes. I played 'UP' on blu-ray. It blew my mind! Full screen, and bright colors; you will not find a tv with a better image. There is a definate sweet spot for viewing. Which leads me to my first complaint.-Viewing angle: When your in the sweet spot. It looks great! When your one couch cushion over, you start to loose it. Contrast is lost, and dark images turn into a washed out blueish color. I was used to the viewing angle on my Samsung plasma, and deeply missed it after setting up the LED.- Low Light: This is a Great TV for daytime viewing. Colors stand out. At night, in a dark room? Not so much. You start to notice that the blacks are not as black as they were during the day. Also, you will notice the corners of the screen starting to light up with a bluish tinge. Extremely distracting especially when watching a movie or show with a 1.85 or 2.4 aspect ratio.-Backlight uniformity: What uniformity? In a very dark scene, you will really start to notice hot spots and cold spots when it comes to backlight. On an all black screen, it looks like black and blue camo. I even noticed Hot Spots during the olypics in very white areas. Again, distracting. This is most likely due to the side lighting as opposed to the full array lighting.OVERVIEW! When you find that sweet spot, and play somthing full screen or with a native 16X9 resolution, the picture will blow your mind.Read more ›
4 out of 5 stars Enjoying the Samsung UN55B6000 HDTV
Image Quality and Connectivity:This Samsung UN55B6000 is excellent technology and priced to move. We've got it hooked up to a cable box (MOT DCT 6200) via the 1 component connection and the image is sharp and crispy and the colors are vivid and bright.We have an older PC connected via the VGA connection and the 3.5mm mini audio connection. Internet browser windows come up real sharp in 1920x1280i resolution. Sidebar: I'm also using wi fi and wireless mouse and keyboard.Hi-res images look fantastic. This TV was assembled with web-browsing and computing in mind (Net widget, USB, JPEG and mp3 friendly) and Samsung has nailed it.Online Support and Configuring the Cable Box:Initially, the cable box was sending 720x480i to the TV. Fortunately I was able to find forums online with posts from a Samsung HD Tech and a cable co. employee that outlined the solution -- turn off the cable box, hit the menu button (cable remote) and here you can select the higher (or different) resolution.Additionally, the cable box required two power cycles for this (resolution) change to take effect but when it did I was viewing cable tv in 1920x1080i.Using Samsung's P.Size (Picture) Button:When watching cable programming broadcast in HD, the 16:9 (aspect ratio) mode looks the best to me. For standard definition programming the Wide-Fit mode stretches the image a bit to fill the screen.I've noticed some adjusting is required when flipping between channels, for example, sometimes CNN ticker text is below the screen and other times the Fox Sports Net FSN graphic is a bit above the screen. Perhaps this issue is addressed in the screen-fit mode, I'm not sure yet, I'll have to mash a few more buttons. Overall, I give it 4.5 stars.
