Reviews for the 50" at CDW.com and BHPhotoVideo.com

Check out the product page for the 46" and pretty good reviews (4.5 out of 5.0) over at BHPhotoVideo.com

I have the UN60FH6200 hanging in my living room, purchased from Bestest Buy over the summer on sale at $50 less new. I’m very happy with the picture, there’s enough menu options to adjust the picture to your liking, just turn off the true motion option (or whatever it’s called), it gives the picture a herky-jerky motion which I found disturbing. The speakers aren’t too bad for a flat-screen, although I use the Vizio sound bar from Woot. It only has 2 HDMI inputs which may be a problem for some, otherwise I recommend the tv.

great price, great review, great deal!

There is a great model number guide and some suggested picture settings on this site. It could use a little more data but it seems to be a good start. I figured some might find it useful.

You can get the same thing from Visio & Sony at Walmart for the same price + brand new & no wait.

Visio is not Samsung unless Kia is BMW.

We have the Samsung 40 inch 5300 model and are very happy with it.

The Smart TV functionality, as with most Smart TVs is not perfect but it works and we’re using over wifi.

40 inches is a nice middle ground size for a smaller room. We found 32 inchers were too close to computer monitors and 46+ was so big it took over the room.

If it matters to you, the 50 inch and larger TVs in this deal appear to have 120 Hz native refresh rate panels. The smaller size models appear to have 60 Hz panels.

(“CMR 120” and “CMR 240” are bag-of-tricks ways to fool your brain into thinking it is seeing a higher refresh rate than the panel actually displays.)

For most average use, this is not an issue - unless you game a lot or mostly watch sports.

For these Smart TV’s the following inexpensive wireless Logitech keyboard is handy for typing and it has a built-in touch pad so it can be used from the couch. $19.99 today on Amazon:

I’d take the Kia warranty over the BMW “good luck with that” guarantee any day. Bad comparison, especially with TVs.

So, do you think this deal will be better than black friday deals?

I love my old TV because it has “side-by-side”. Two pictureS at the same time.

Does anybody know of a manufacturer that still does that?
Or is there away to do that with software on a PC?

@PeteCal, I believe TV manufacturers may have backed away from Picture-in-Picture because the cable companies now do a lot of that multichannel manipulating/previewing in their smart boxes and send the processed image to our ‘dumb’ TV’s/monitors.

Any thoughts on hooking the Samsung’s up as a computer monitor?

@coldfyre, can’t speak to all the models here but as an example, we paid about $390 for the 40 inch 5300 model that goes for $359 on this deal. It was a Costco Black Friday (or there abouts) deal last year. But that was new vs. today’s refurb.

@hooligandave, we have the 40 inch 5300 model hooked up to a HTPC. It works great as a second monitor.

We also Skype weekly with our daughter in China & Hong Kong. We have an HD (must be HD for best quality and typical laptop webcams are crappy) Logitech webcam hanging from the top of the TV. Skype has matured to the point where it is an amazing tool - it feels like we are in the same room. Truly amazing. She even got to watch some of the Olympics on our TV when we turned the webcam around toward the TV since coverage in China was horrible.

A Skype feature recently made free: multiparty video conferencing. Works surprisingly well, especially on a larger monitor like this. We add in my mother from another state for excellent three-way video calls. All free!

If you have relatives or friends in another part of the world, investing in at least a 32 inch PC/laptop-connected TV/monitor for Skyping is a no brainer. Even if you never use it for anything else! It is that good.
