Thread: Samsung UN60EH6050
07-21-2012, 12:49 PM #1
A friend of mine contacted me to see whether a Samsung 60 inch 1080p backlit LED UN60EH6050 is good to get.
I believe he saw this at Sams or Costco for $1349.99.
Amazon has it with mostly high reviews with some negative reviews in regards to the motion being very poor for Mad Men, etc. . Anybody here have any idea?
It has 2 hdmi ports and it isn't loaded with streaming internet like other smart tvs, no 3D.

I have never laid eyes on one, but I believe both Sams and Costco both have a very liberal return policy.
I have read that motion blur can be a big factor with these, LED & LCD, sets. Is that what you are reading on the Amazon reviews?

yeah.. everything else sounds good. But several folks returned the set due to the motion blur.
Granted, the vast majority stated motion blur was a non issue thou..
I will tell him to check the return policy and if good, get the tv and get a fast paced dvd that shows a battle scene or some sport footage like NFL or NBA...

I've got a the 8000 series 65 inch.
In a dark room on dark content (think AppleTV, Sopranos etc...) you can see the edge lighting. Panny plasmas are better but NOT as thin.
The price you mention above is INSANE. Its hard to lose with this TV. If he needs more screen uniformity - he might want to go plasma.

If he primarily plans to use this TV to watch a lot of movies at night in a darker room, I too would suggest he go with a plasma TV instead. I haven't seen this particular TV, but I can tell you that even Samsung's top-shelf ES8000 LED has obvious screen-uniformity problems that can be a distraction with darker content. If he's going to use this TV for more casual viewing, especially during the day, then it will probably be a fine choice.
I checked out the owner's manual, and the TV has a thorough assortment of picture adjustments for a TV in this price range. Regarding motion-blur problems, the TV has Samsung's Auto Motion Plus technology, which I think is one of the better solutions for reducing motion blur. You can independently adjust the blur and judder controls; so, if you don't like that super-smooth effect that comes from frame interpolation, you can avoid it. It also has the LED Motion Plus control that scans the backlight to further reduce blur. If people were complaining about blur with this TV, then they probably had not adjusted the settings properly.
It's worth mentioning that the TV only has two HDMI connections, which could be an issue.--

This is not an edge lit tv. it is backlit. they kept the price down by not having as many led's across the whole panel, which ironically has given this tv in some reviews edges that are darker than the rest of the screen.
i have seen this tv in costco and actually posted a picture of it in one of the threads. cant remember which.
what i like is that its screen is between matte and glossy. many lcd/led's are now coming with very glossy screens.

Costco does seem to have good prices for the tv's they are selling in comparison to other brick n mortar retail establishments.

I thought to update this thread. My friend purchased this tv from Costco in July and so far no issues. He is very very happy with it.

Nice. If your friend hasn't done so already, tell them to take it off "Demo Mode".
