Was not happy with ordering on-line. Local store (Cambridge) showed 1 in stock but after placing order, order was cancelled by Walmart. Then in ordering a second time at the Forest Lake store, credit card declined thinking it was a second charge for the same item.
If you want a Big HDTV without those smart features this is a perfect TV for you. If you want the best picture make sure you update the latest firmware off Samsung.com on a USB flash drive and then change some of the menu settings because its not the best picture out of the box. Only negatives is the price and only 2 hdmi ports.\n\nHere is my settings for a bright picture\n\nMODE : STANDARD\nBACKLIGHT: 20\nCONTRAST: 90\nBRIGHTNESS:44\nSHARPNESS:35\nCOLOR:50\nTINT: G50\/R50\n\nADVANCED SETTINGS\n\nCOLOR SPACE: AUTO\nWHITE BALANCE: DEFAULT\nGAMMA: +2 OR HIGHER DEPENDS ON YOUR OPINION\nDYNAMIC CONTRAST: LOW OR OFF DEPENDS ON YOUR OPINION\nBLACK TONE: DARK OR OFF DEPENDS ON YOUR OPINION\nFLESH TONE: +4\nMOTION LIGHTING: OFF\n\nPICTURE OPTIONS\n\nCOLOR TONE: COOL\nSIZE: 16 9\nDIGITAL NOISE FILTER: AUTO\nFILM MODE: AUTO\nAUTO MOTION PLUS: CLEAR\nLED MOTION PLUS : OFF
My order was placed on April 29 and today is May 13. I haven't received my order yet and was looking forward to having it this past weekend when my family visited from out of town. But I just have a empty wall. I am know wondering if I should have followed my first thoughts and ordered it from BestBuy in the beginning. If it does arrive before this weekend when I have some more family and friends coming into town. I am really thinking about sending it back.
Rather than reinvent the wheel, I agree with this review:\nhttp:\/\/reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com\/sony-lcd-tv\/sony-kdl55ex640.html\n\nNot sure if I'll keep it.\nIf not, would wait longer and get something \"better\" for a lower price.
This is an extremely heavy TV when compared to others of equal styles and sizes on the market. Picture is PERFECT. I do not use a lot of the extra functions however it has a decent selection. I was disappointed that I had to run through a setup on the screen before it would let me view anything else (mainly because the cable guy was waiting on me to finish). I would not recommend the use of the base if you have small children, invest in the wall mount. The base works but is not really stable with contact, hence the reference to small children.
The Samsung F6300 was a lot more than I'd hoped for. The mark down price in the store was $100 cheaper than the online price. The dual-core processor is very fast, the picture is superb after some minor personal changes to the settings. HD channels are incredible! I didn't expect high-quality sound from the TV so that isn't a detraction for my review. I have a 7.1 surround sound system and through that, this TV is like being in the theater. Our room is small and 55\" is the perfect size. The applications built-in and the available apps for download are extensive! The remote is simple to understand and the interface is very intuitive. So far, there is nothing to dislike about the TV but I may stop in and edit this later for the good and bad, if I find anything.\n\nI cannot say this is the TV for you, but it certainly exceeded my expectations as a first Smart TV. We came from an older Sony 50\" rear-projection LCD TV which finally quit after almost 10 years. We have a 2 yr old 32\" Sony LCD in the MBR and that one has been a problem (lost 2 or the three HDMI ports!) so we opted not to return to Sony and try Samsung instead.
