Our take on the Samsung UN40F6300

Samsung's higher-performing LCD TVs begin with the F6300-series models. The first big upgrade is Clear Motion Rate 240 technology, which combines 120Hz refresh rate with a blinking backlight to significantly improve the clarity of video motion, especially on larger-sized screens.

Samsung's F6300-series TVs aim higher

Samsung's higher-performing LCD TVs begin with the F6300-series models. The first big upgrade is Clear Motion Rate 240 technology, which combines 120Hz refresh rate with a blinking backlight to significantly improve the clarity of video motion, especially on larger-sized screens.

More ways to connect to your digital entertainment

Two types of connections have become truly universal in recent years: HDMI and USB. The UN40F6300 has four HDMI inputs, which will allow your Blu-ray player, and high-def cable or satellite TV receiver to look and sound their best — not to mention a growing number of digital cameras and camcorders, too. And the USB inputs let you plug in a wide array of devices — everything from a thumb drive to an optional webcam that enables cool features like gesture control and Skype™ video calls.

This Smart TV has some cool new tricks

Once the UN40F6300 is connected to your network, it makes it easy to find great things to watch. Samsung's innovative Smart Hub organizes your favorite entertainment into five simple panels: On-TV, Movies and Shows, Social, Apps, and a panel for your personal photos, videos and music. If your PC is networked you can even search through the video and music you've stored on it using the TV's remote. This set's built-in Wi-Fi® means you can probably enjoy streamed web content in any room in your home without running a cable.

One of the really cool and different features of Samsung's 2013 Smart TVs is 2-way wireless screen mirroring. Using your Wi-Fi network, you can mirror what's on the screen of your Samsung Galaxy S3 or newer smartphone or Galaxy tablet, on the UN40F6300's screen. You can mirror the other way, too. Just download Samsung's Smart View app and use the TV View feature to mirror whatever's on the TV's screen on your compatible Samsung phone or tablet. You can leave the room anytime without leaving your entertainment behind.

Great TV

Rob from Panama City Beach FL on 3/9/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is my first flat-screen hi-def TV and I did quite a bit of reading on TVs and brands before deciding on this Samsung. Consumer Reports had a good rating for this TV and after reading the other reviews here, I decided to buy. I made the right choice. This TV is excellent. The picture quality in HD is outstanding and the viewing angles are quite good. Setup was pretty easy and quick. I was able to integrate my other components (stereo receiver and speakers, DVD player) as well. Before making the purchase, had an online chat with Daisy and she recommended the correct wire I needed to connect my receiver to the TV. Thanks Daisy!

Pros: Superb picture quality, internet ready, easy to set up

Cons: none

We are very pleased with the new TV. It came quickly and set up was simple. It was up and running in minutes. Our only concern is the sound. We installed it in a cabinet and even with the required clearances etc...the sound is really quite inadequate. we will be buying a sound bar and sub woofer but its not really an option but a requirement

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After much research on the Internet and talking with friends, I reduced my search to Samsung products. I search through out the Internet to find the best deals on Samsung. From other retailers, which lead to Crutchfield's website. And it was here that I found a great price for this TV.

Pros: I love the SMART feature. It is really fun to play with.

Cons: Wish I could get a 50" for the same price.

HUGE improvement over 32" JVC Tube TV!

Earle from Catonsville, MD on 1/6/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I waited 15 years to buy a new TV and when my JVC was just not cutting it anymore, I bought the Samsung UN40F6300. The toughest part of this TV install was removing the old heavy beast. Setup was a breeze and it works flawlessly with my Tivo Premier XL. I chose the LED because it fit perfectly inside of my TV cabinet with about 1/2" to spare on each side. My only problem is what I'm going to do with my Polk center channel speaker. Before it was sitting on top of the old TV, but it clearly will not work for the LED.

Pros: With a network connection hooked up to the LED it will go look for updates during install...very cool.

Cons: I probably have to buy a slimmed down center-channel speaker to replace the older bulkier one.

This is our first LED TV. We have 6 years old Samsung Plasma 42" set in living room, it's still good TV, but this new Smart TV is a big difference! High resolution picture, bright natural colors, thin, lightweight, easy set up.

Pros: Bright display, Realistic colors, Lightweight, Good value for the price.

Steve B from Cedar Park, TX on 1/1/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We received our Samsung Tv just like they said and were amazed at the improved picture quality over another brand of flat screen only two years old. The screws that hold the base to the tv were missing so we called Samsung. They wanted a copy of our sales receipt and wouldn't tell us what size but would send them......still waiting for Samsung! We then called Crutchfield and the representative had the number and size for us in 10 seconds. Very Happy with them.

Pros: Great picture quality, connects with other Samsung products easily.

Cons: Consider a sound bar. Makes a huge difference due to the position of the speakers in the tv

Great Mid Priced TV/Excellent Feature Set

rakalm from Baltimore, MD on 1/1/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the price, this is a feature laden television. The Smarthub is the newest version and beats out the big box store version which is last years version (Cost COmpany). The Crutchfield shipping was super fast as usual (1 day to Baltimore). The picture is quite nice, not quite as good the Panasonic Plasmas (no longer made in this size and price range). But once I finish my calibrations, I expect it to be quite close except for the black level.

Pros: SmartHub is fantastic and quite easy to use. Nice, slim, light design, attractive overall. Price is better than one would expect for this feature laden set. Plenty of inputs and outputs. I did get a manual with mine as well, not just a quick start guide.

Cons: Stand is flimsy but not a game changer at all. No real minuses.

Samsung 40" - Great Buy!

Cons: None

So far so Good!

Gerard T, 48yroldman from Burlington, NJ on 12/30/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just put the product UN40F6300 up in my MST Bed. I have DirecTV and it was an easy install. I enjoy the picture and glad on the purchase. Sporting events are clear as being there. So far, used 5 days. Picture clarity difficult to adjust to. Image (maybe 1080) sometimes appears like viewing a recorded image. TV Remote Control cumbersome. Still happy with purchase. I would recommend the TV at this time. Excellent Price with Crutchfield, and can expect excellent service if needed.

Pros: Easy install. Easy hookup with wireless WiFi. Easy cable to receiver hookup with HDMI cable. Smart functionality better then expected.

Cons: Need the DirecTV Remote and Samsung Remote. Manual not enclosed, just Quick Startup Guide. Appears to have many features with controller but Guide doesn't show how everything works. Played with Samsung controller several times, but still not clear on all Functionality. Speakers rear mounted, sound could be better, but not that bad. Wife believes picture is strange when viewing. 1080 clarity difficult to adjust to...don't know if it a CON at this time. Hopefully can get wireless Keyboard

Samsung UN40F6300 from Philadelphia, Pa on 12/28/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

TV has a great picture right out of the box, and after some quick tweaking of the picture controls the result was an outstanding picture, especially on 1080 I/ P material from HD broadcast channels and Blu-ray movies.The tv was easy to set up and the smart features work as advertised with my home Wi-Fi network.

Pros: Great Picture, easy set--up, Smart features

Cons: None

Extremely Disappointing

pah9356 from Greensboro, NC on 12/10/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

With no reflection on Crutchfield itself thru which I ordered the referenced tv, had I realized the quality of the Samsung UN40F6300 tv, I would never have ordered it! It is a piece of junk! Brightness control is an absolute and total joke! My fault was waiting any number of months for a certain telecom provider to offer tv, internet and ip phone services on my street. prior to setting up the tv, otherwise I would have immediately reboxed and shipped it back to Crutchfield. As such I am left eating $100 bills (which I call ill afford) pending an alternative solution - LG or Sony? As far as I am concerned this will be the first and last Samsung purchase I will ever make!

Pros: None

Cons: Brightness quality is a joke!!!!!

Samsung UN40F6300 Slim

James from Gulfport, MS on 12/5/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was a upgrade for a older Samsung 32 that was still working great so it was moved to the guest bedroom. This was for our bedroom and this slim profile model along with the pedestal stand was perfect for the location. From researching I knew this was the model I wanted. Set up was very easy. I was concerned how the sound quality would be due to hearing. No problem, small adjustments on custom selection and selecting the proper mode and the sound is clear. Back up plan was to get another Zvox unit from Crutchfield. Great picture, good remote, plenty of extras. Nice benefit were the number of USB slots and large amount of compatibility formats available. Played MPEG 4 videos and photos no problem. Smart hub improved but my provider is not on the list so some features are not available. Streaming is nice, but I prefer using my Apple TV. I have been a customer of Crutchfield since the late 70's. I have never been disappointed with their service, recommendations, or support.

Pros: Design, picture and quality.

Cons: None so far.

Samsung 40" Smart LED TV

David from Sonora, CA on 11/5/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had an older model Samsung 40" LED TV that I purchased about 7 years ago. I just replaced it with this new Samsung Smart TV, and am very happy that I did so! Excellent quality picture and great sound as well! Lots of inputs that are available to use to couple up my Cable Box, DVD, and VHS VCR as well - The TV itself offers many options to set up the picture exactly as you want it - In addition, the "Smart" functions that are available are a new and exciting edition in my home entertainment system that I did not have access to prior to this purchase. Set up was very easy for coupling up my home Wireless Internet to this "Smart" TV - Watching "You Tube" is wonderful on the large screen - Listening to my Pandora Internet Radio is a Great addition as well - Have not tried other "Apps" yet, but will soon.

Pros: Excellent Picture quality with Great sound, and access to many "Smart" TV features will open up many doors for me!

Cons: None! - Love it and am very glad to have made this purchase!!!

Product was received the day after it was ordered. Setup was easy and we are impressed with the overall quality and picture. This particular until is very light in weight compared to the other flat panel TVs we've owned.

Top Quality

Mike from La Crosse, WI on 9/29/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I spent many months researching the right TV for our living room. I was between this one and the 32" version. My wife did not want a "large" TV over powering the feel of the living room, but after much conversation "we" decided that 40" was the right size. Part of what helped sell the larger size was the clean look the wall mount gave. I am very happy that we went with the larger screen. It is not obtrusive in our living room primarily because of how flat it truly is. I was intrigued by the smart functions this model offered, but primarily bought this TV for the picture quality and HDMI inputs. The picture quality is amazing. I bought a high end Sony flat screen 4 1/2 years ago and I've always been happy with that picture, but this is noticeably better. We have four large windows in the living room so glare was a concern. The screen has matted finish to reduce glare and works well. I have had a hard time adjusting the picture settings. I've made little changes with it every other day and am still not 100% satisfied but confident I can get there. I got the Sanus VMF408 as it was the least expensive wall mount to go with it. I still use component video cables for VCR, and needed to purchase a 90 degree adapter to help them fit. There is free access to all other inputs. Setup is very easy. I have DirecTV and changing to this was simple. Even connecting to our WiFi was sime as well. Usually I have more issues connecting to our secure network. The apps available are limited.

Pros: Picture quality, setup, very flat - looks great wall mounted.

Cons: Speakers rear mounted - not the best sound quality, but ok. Remote can be annoying for typing with smart apps.

VERY pleased with my Samsung !

Jill from Big Flats NY on 9/23/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The TV was VERY easy to get up and running for a real novice! Was concerned the 40" was too large for our small room but after the first evening very pleased with the size.! Try to add a new feature every day as I have time and the on-line manual works well. Calling Crutchfield for set-up help 1st day worked very well also ! I love this TV's picture quality, sound quality is very good as well though will likely add sound bar at some point.

Pros: Picture quality!,sound quality, easy set-up, wireless capabilities, many built in apps, works well in bright room, easy to use on-line manual.

Cons: have not found one!

RV from Charlottesville, VA on 9/13/2013

Great picture, but a difficult wand to understand and use. TV readily accesses Netflix on wifi, but the Netflix display is much less user friendly than what I receive on a Sony setup on main TV. Don't need or want all the bells & whistles coming with the TV. Service from Crutchfield outstanding as always.




GeorgeP from Cape May, NJ on 9/8/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a wonderful TV. The picture is bright, clear, and crisp, and the higher refresh rate makes fast action shots fluid and seamless. The smart features allow the family to do things like viewing a YouTube video or website without having to crowd around a computer, although using them would be much easier if I had a tablet so that I wouldn't have to navigate using the remote's arrows to choose letters from a linear scale. The only small shortcoming I've noticed is that the sound quality lacks fullness and bass response. Given that this is my first flat-screen TV of any kind, I'm delighted to be able to see what I've heard others rave about. And to set it up was a breeze!

Pros: Outstanding picture quality, smart features, and setup.

Cons: Sound quality.

Great TV-the best one I ever owned. I would recommend this TV to anyone. The vivid display makes it fun to watch and the Smart TV features are easy to lean and watch. My wife and I pimary watch Amazon streaming watch which works well, as all of the Smart TV functions. It's easy to switch from one application to another. We really like the audio on this TV which does not overwhelm you with a wide rande of volumes when watch TV.

Great TV

RGS from Columbus, Ohio on 7/23/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great Clear easy to set up and use TV.The IR repeater that is included is a huge bonus. Plug the wire into the back of the TV place the very small transmitter in front of your cable box and follow the onscreen set up instructions. The TV is very thin and has a very small edge and will fit in smaller spaces. WiFi was easy to set up. Internet connectivity will even let me access my content stored on my WD Live Hub! With only one composite input you need the rest of your connections to be HDMI. You can also use a USB Keyboard to set up WiFi and access internet features. As usual Fantastic Crutchfield service. I have been shopping here since the 1970's

Pros: Thin, Easy to set up, IR Blaster, WiFi, Great picture.

Great picture, easy to use and navigate through all of the features. Easy set up. Crutchfield came through as usual, shipped quickly.

Pros: Picture quality, styling, features.

Cons: The remote doesn't seem to want to work with my Directv box. I program it and after turning the tv off and then turning it on later, the remote has to be reprogrammed.

JimW from Kansas City, MO on 5/13/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This TV is in our Rec Room and is primarily used during our exercise routines. The Wi-Fi feature is important for us so we can watch TED talks, other internet-based content, as well as some broadcast content. The learning curve to easily use the remote is short, even for us seniors.

Pros: Good picture, no adjustments necessary and good sound. Installation took 45 minutes. Wireless mouse works OK.

Cons: Hookup to a vintage VHS player works, but Samsung software doesn't recognize it is wired up unless a signal is coming down the line (video must be playing)

Ann from charlotte, nc on 5/5/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Was reluctant to buy a Smart TV as I imagined the set up into my receiver and sound system would be difficult. Not so--one of the easiest set ups ever! I did have a problem with the audio out from tv to receiver. The tv had the new ARC audio out technology and my 3-year old receiver was not compatible. Crutchfield staff quickly diagnosed the situation (I had bought my receiver from them, so they knew its capability)--just needed an rca mini jack to complete set up. They quickly got that in the mail ($19.00) an set up complete. I did have to adjust the standard settings on tv to get a crisper sound from tv shows.

Pros: Easy set up. Nice quality sound and picture.

Cons: The keyboard feature that comes with the tv is very cumbersome (for web browsing especially). Will have to investigate using some type of external keyboard if I want to browse the web much.

LED Edge-Lighting: Samsung's LED Edge-Lighting technology allows for a high dynamic contrast ratio and ultra-sharp blacks by allowing multiple LEDs to turn on an off automatically based on the image. LED Edge-Lighting also provides more natural color representation and deep reds and greens, because Samsung uses white LEDs that produce 105% of the broadcast color gamut. The television's white LEDs are arranged along the left and right edges of the screen and a proprietary light guide is used to focus its luminance inwards towards the middle of the screen for a more uniform brightness. Overall, this LED Backlight system produces contrast with stronger blacks and whites, and greater subtlety of every gradation in between.

Clear Motion Rate 240: Clear Motion Rate (CMR) is Samsung's more comprehensive and accurate measure for how well the LED-LCD TV can display fast-moving images. Previously, motion clarity was expressed simply by the refresh rate, measured in Hz. CMR, however, takes into account all three factors that contribute to motion clarity: panel refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology. CMR is measured by determining the thinnest line a TV can display in a moving image. The thinner the line, the higher the CMR rating, and the clearer the picture you'll enjoy on the screen.

  • Panel Refresh Rate (Hz): Samsung's screen refresh rate (120Hz) significantly improves motion detail and resolution by sampling the image more frequently, leading to smoother, more fluid movement.
  • Image Processor (Auto Motion Plus): Samsung's proprietary Auto Motion Plus image processing technology is faster and more responsive than conventional image processors, as it interpolates intermediate frames to smooth out the image.
  • LED Backlight Technology: Samsung's Edge-Lighting Backlight technology regulates output precisely in synchronization with the screen refresh to lessen the time it is lit, reducing ghosting and motion blur.

Auto Motion Plus: Auto Motion Plus removes blur and judder from scenes with large amounts of rapid movement to provide a clearer picture.

The TV's analog audio output terminals will output 2ch audio from any of the television's source inputs.

ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection.

The TV pivots in the stand.The footprint of the stand is 22" x 10"A GREAT TV; wonderful investment: the best 40" Samsung w/o the 3D ready junk. [ Frank  Feb 24, 2014 ]
Hey Scott, The base is approximately 10.5" x 22". And yes the tv swivels from left to right on the stand. Best regards, Ed [ EDWARD M  Feb 22, 2014 ]
The TV does not move on the base, so you would have to turn the base to change position. The base is much more substantial and stable than the plastic bases on smaller models. I can't measure it for you now because I'm away from home for a few days, but I am very happy with this model. [ PETER R  Feb 21, 2014 ]
Scott... As a follow-up, the TV base is 22" wide by 10" deep. [ DAVID  Feb 21, 2014 ]
Scott... The base of the TV is stationary, the TV itself pivots on the base (i.e. it can be turned toward one section of the room while the base itself remains in place). I'm at work and can't get you the measurements quite yet. Awesome picture and sound quality by the way. I would highly recommend this TV. [ DAVID  Feb 21, 2014 ]
