Features:

Picture Quality

  • Full HD 1080p
    The realistic detail of Full HD images invites you to enjoy a viewing experience that redefines reality
  • Clear Motion Rate 120
    A Clear Motion Rate of 120 is a great level of motion-clarity. TVs with this CMR can display action-packed movement with sharpness, clarity and contrast. Clear Motion Rate was developed to accurately measure how well an LCD or LED TV can depict fast-moving images. Previously, motion-clarity was calculated by the frame refresh rate alone. But CMR offers a more complete measure by calculating 3 factors: frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology

I did a some research to educate myself about Smart TV's prior to making this purchase, and it became apparent to me that Samsung is so far ahead in the development game, that buying was a no-brainer. The picture quality and feature set are amazing and the overall design is complimentary to the rest of my A-V gear. This set is replacing a 10 year-old digital rear projection set and I gotta say I am reliving the HD revelation all over again! The mesh with my PC's and Galaxy Note II is seamless and exponentially multiplies the usefulness of this set and transforms it from a mundane TV into an entertainment device. I'll never look at TV the same way again

I wanted to give this TV a great review, but I cannot. Whenever you go to Netflix and get back out, you will lose the signal source and must go through the set-up steps to get the signal back. Samsung has admitted this is a known problem and are working on a solution. Another issue is with the universal remote and how it controls the TV versus the set-top-box. Whenever you turn the power off for the TV, the STB will power off as well. There is a seperate button for STB power on the remote, so you would assume that only that button would control the STB power. That is not the case. Samsung states that this is normal functionality of the remote, but I don't want to kill the STB when I power off the TV. This stops my DVR from recording. The picture is great, but I expect that from Samsung since I have several Samsung TV's already. This is my first Smart TV and I have had this model for less than 24 hours, however, and I am less than pleased with it so far.

      What a great picture!

      Cons

        Best Uses

          The LED screen on this TV is awesome. This is the first smart TV we have owned set up was easy and intuitive. Streaming Netflix and VUDU movies is great and the picture quality is great. I upgraded from a HD picture tube tv and it weighed a tone and had a good picture too but the LED screen is super sharp and bright. Love it and I can definitely recoment it.

          Pros

          • Bright display

          • Realistic color

          Cons

          • Poor speakers

          Best Uses

            I purchased this tv for my wife/bedroom tv. She absolutely loves it. It has a great picture and color reproduction is flawless out of the box. I was hoping it was 3d but it wasn't but that is my fault. The speakers aren't that great but it isn't a console tv either now is it? All in all a wonderful set.

              This TV has been dissappointing.

              from WA

              Pros

              • Bright display
              • Realistic color

              Cons

              • Did not meet expectations
              • not good for just using internet

              Best Uses

                I bought a smart TV to have access to the internet as I cannot afford both cable TV and internet. Without a keyboard it is difficult to use the internet features, and some not usable at all without one. According to my menu I have the capability for a wireless keyboard but Samsung does not make one for the 6300 series. Makes no sense to have a feature built in and no accessory available. Also a lot of the streaming becomes distorted after being on a short time. I'm sure it is a great TV if you can afford CABLE or have DIRECT or DISH TV but not so otherwise.
