Our take on the Samsung UN46F6300

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. Most people will easily see the difference on this super-sharp 46" screen.

More ways to connect to your digital entertainment

Two types of connections have become truly universal in recent years: HDMI and USB. The UN46F6300 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 UN46F6300 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 UN46F6300'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.

Excellent Buy. For someone who is looking for a smart TV and does not care about 3D, this is the midsize television you want. Picture is excellent and the smart features are easy to operate. Set it up in less than 30 minutes, including unpacking.

Pros: Good picture, reasonable price and Samsung quality

Cons: Cannot connect to Pandora but have not had time to research the reason.

Great TV

Mike from Williamsburg, VA on 3/2/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have had this TV for one month now. The picture was excellent right out of the box. I enjoy the "smart tv" features such as being able to stream from Amazon and Netflix. Also, the ability to connect a flash drive so that you can have a continuous slide show with music is a plus. This set has several built in apps and you can connect to Facebook and YouTube.

Pros: Beautiful picture. HD detail is amazing even at 1080i from the cable company. A little gross, but was able to see nose hairs on Samuel Jackson in a movie on HBO! The set is capable of 1080p. I cannot wait to connect a blue-ray to it to see true 1080p.

Cons: I had to learn to turn off other items in my wireless network when streaming HD video on the new TV. It is on the opposite side of my house from my router. It was dropping my internet connection while streaming after about 10 minutes, until I learned to shut down other items on network. Samsung says maximum range from router is 50 feet. It would be nice if it would pick up further than that.

Gorgeous picture, but only after proper settings

My initial impression was very negative. I was almost ready to find out what the return policy was on TVs. After playing around with the various settings I was able to achieve one of the best pictures I've seen on any TV. Here are the settings. This may or may not work for you: Picture Mode---standard backlight---------14 contrast----------56 brightness------43 sharpness------50 (You could probably go less. Play around withit) color---------------33 tint (G/R)-------G 64, R 36 ADVANCED SETTINGS dynamic contrast-----medium black tone------off color space----auto flesh tone-------0 gamma-----------0 motion lighting--off PICTURE OPTIONS color tone---standard digital clean view---auto mpeg noise filter----auto auto motion plus---standard apply picture mode--all sources

Pros: Superb picture

Cons: None

David from Pelzer, SC on 2/6/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The television was easy to set up and worked fine right out of the box. On screen menus for adjusting picture and sound easy to use. Very good picture. I changed to a satellite service from cable and noticed a pronounced improvement in the picture quality..sharpness and color. Although the television is a great product, the overall experience of getting and setting it up was made even better because of the excellent customer support provided by Crutchfield.

Pros: Very good picture. Although the television speakers are pretty good, I run everything through my home theater system. The price for the quality was very good. So far, I am finding the Smart TV features easy to use and navigate.

Cons: Have had the TV only a short time, but so far none.

Amazing Television

Cliff K. from North Las Vegas, NV on 2/2/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm using this set to pull HDTV signals over the air and the picture POPS! It also provides a TV guide that shows me what's on throughout the day and allows me to preset the shows I want to see, then it changes the channels on time without further input from me. Smart TV allows me to see what's on each major channel as soon as I hit the "on" button. SMART TV also for full range of viewing options and that brilliant picture and 5.1 sound is great too.

Pros: Picture quality, sound quality, tv guide even through the air

Cons: none

Awesome TV

Pros: All good.

Cons: None

Great WiFi TV with one annoying feature

Ed B from Staten Island NY on 1/18/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very impressed with the quality of the picture of this TV. In addition it has a very wide viewing angle. However, I was incredibly impressed with the WiFi applications - we've been using it to stream HD Movies, YouTube Videos, etc. WiFi setup took only a few minutes. It has about 20 pre-set aps including a web browser. The sound of the TV speakers isn't that good, but it has an optical out connection that makes it easy to connect to your receiver for surround sound. The one annoying feature is the volume control - it makes an audible click sound each time you increase or decrease the volume and there is no way to turn it off!

Pros: Great Picture Excellent wide viewing angle Great WiFi aps

Cons: Annoying click each time you change the volume Not the best sound

Excellent HD and Value

JRM from Petoskey, Mi on 12/30/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Safe delivery using UPS - well packaged by Crutchfield. Easy to set up for basic TV watching. Excellent picture quality with HD signals - very good with SD. Sound is good for regular TV watching - you will want a sound system for serious movie watching. This TV is an excellent value in the 46" size, with excellent ultimate picture quality in HD. Upconverting from lesser quality signals is more variable - sometimes quite good - sometimes just good (faces can look a bit washed out at times - moreso than with my Sony). It would take a lot more money to materially improve on what this TV can do. 5 star rating, based on quality and value for the money.

Pros: Excellent HD picture quality and excellent value for the money. Nice looking and seems well built.

Cons: Picture quality with SD signals is variable (faces can look washed out with poorer quality programs). Sound is merely adequate for movie watching (although not much worse than other thin TVs).


Lyle from Indiana on 12/26/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We have really enjoyed this TV. Great value for the money. Received product in excellent shape and the delivery was on time. Some minor picture adjustments and we were in business.

Pros: Easy setup Crutchfield support

Cons: None

Better than expected!

Petra from Philly Burbs on 12/24/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to set up, followed another reviewer's settings, tweaked them easily. Large but not heavy, and even though I was wishing for another set of hands, I managed it all by myself, even the the wire management. And for a small room, the sound is just fine. I love it.

Pros: Having the Crutchfield team as a safety net allows you to go boldly where you have no experience setting up the TV, box, DVD,etc.

Cons: none, yet.

Our first smart TV and enjoying trying all the apps/features. Loved the black Friday price and wonderful service from Crutchfield.

Pros: Light slim TV is easy to handle. Great picture. Enjoying the YouTube app that streams from laptop to the TV. Netflix and Pandora work great!

Cons: Web browser in TV is slow and makes it difficult to stream TV programs through the TV.

Pros: Best TV in price range

Great TV

R.L from South Pasadena, CA on 12/13/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replaced our ten-year-old 1,000 lb, four-foot-thick Samsung TV with this LED smart TV from Samsung. Amazing picture. Really like the fact that we can access the internet to watch shows (already got addicted to several online shows entirely too quickly). I would give the TV 5 stars, except that there are a couple of things I'm not entirely thrilled about. First off, the web browser that comes with this TV is so painfully slow that I cannot bear to use it. Also, this particular model is not compatible with the Samsung keyboard, so you are forced to enter passwords and usernames using the remote. It feels like I'm sticking needles in my eyes every time I have to do that. I did got out and get a Logitech K400 keyboard, which kind of works. Many of the built in apps still don't let me actually type in information, but only allow me to scroll to letters and numbers using the keyboard. A little bit better than the remote, but not much. My other quibble is with the picture when you look at it at an angle. Dead on viewing is spectacular. But, once you start angling off to watch it, the picture quality deadens markably. I had read in other posts that this was a problem ... just didn't realize how much until I actually viewed it. A small thing, for sure, but somebody usually ends up getting the short end of the stick, visually. Besides that, this is a great TV.. Just wish Samsung would come up with a way to better way to navigate the Smart Features with this model.

Pros: Lots of HDMI and USB ports Sharp picture when viewed dead on Love the smart Features

Cons: Smart features could be more intuitive Samsung Keyboard not an option for this model Picture quality drops noticeably when viewed at an angle

Another Great Samsung

PaulK from Ann Arbor on 12/11/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this (my 4th) Samsung LCD TV to put in the same room as my "reference" 65-inch Panasonic Viera plasma. "Out of the box", the picture on the UN46F6300 was a little too "processed" and dynamic. I implemented some of the adjustments suggested by another reviewer and toned down some of the over-processing (reducing the sharpening, for example). These adjustments made a world of difference, especially with faces when viewed close-up. It now compares favorably with my Panasonic plasma. One distinct improvement over my "older" Samsung (SS) sets is the "off-angle" viewing. While not as good as a plasma, this set is much better than earlier SS models when viewed from off-angle. Likewise, the Smart Hub software is easier to use and much-improved over earlier iterations. Even the E-Manual (electronic user manual) is better than last year's. It's good to know that SS is continually improving and refining the hardware, software and documentation. Crutchfield is fabulous. I have made use of their excellent technical support and sales advice on many occasions. While you may get a slightly lower price elsewhere, you will be hard-pressed to find similar support and expertise. BTW: when I was on the Samsung web site to register my new set, I noticed that Samsung was offering this model for $200 less than what I paid at CF. Ugh. But CF followed suit several days later, lowering their advertised price by $200. CF honored their price guarantee and refunded the difference!

Pros: Picture quality, including superb off-angle viewing Samsung innovation (Smart Hub) Reliability Decent sound for a flat-panel

Cons: ?Plastic rear housing: The back of the TV is now plastic versus the metal back housing on two earlier sets. Perhaps lighter but maybe not as stiff. Limited picture-in-picture capability: The PIP (picture-in-picture) supports TV (broadcast or cable) signals only. Thus, you cannot display two HDMI (cable box and blu-ray) signals as PIP, which is too bad. "Over-processed" default picture settings (easily corrected; see above)

Great TV, easy set up, great Smart platform

JB from New York on 11/17/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great TV once again from Samsung. The picture is fluid and clear, and the new Smart platform improves on the great prior version.

Pros: picture and Smart Platform. No other TV comes close to what Samsung Smart offers. Easy to use, and wide range of apps.

Cons: Set up and firmware update can be annoying sometimes as it may reset apps with sign ins.

Very Pleased With Samsung UN46F6300

PaulS from Tonawanda,NY on 11/4/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent picture quality and service by Crutchfield.

Pros: Easy set-up, comprehensive yet simple remote, and wonderful HD picture with no blur.

Cons: Sound is OK but power does not fill room (performed best when set to wall mount mode).

Excellent TV. Very satisfied with our purchase.

K and L from Waynesboro, VA on 10/18/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent TV. Picture is sharp and bright. Sound is very good. If the TV needs moving, it is very movable at 27 lbs. We are very pleased with our choice that we made. Our purchasing experience with Crustchfield was excellent as it has been wih our past pucrchases over the past nine years. We have never been disappointed with the Crutchfield service and knowledge/advice of the products that we were interested in buying.

Pros: The picture is sharp and bright. The sound is very good. It interfaces well with the Bluray DVD player we also purchased at the same time - Samsung model BD-F5900.

Cons: Have not experienced any so far.

Excellent TV

Epubcar from Naperville, IL on 9/19/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Beautiful picture with intuitively positive connections. Controls are easy to use and I enjoy adjusting the picture to suit my own tastes. For clearest picture make sure you feed your cable box, BD Player individually to the HDMI inputs on the set. Then run a Fiber Optic connection from the TV to your AV receiver. Couldn't get simpler.

Pros: Great TV. Buy one today!

Cons: None

Amazing TV but better with the right Calibrations

Rexy from Toronto, Ontario on 9/6/2013

This is my second TV purchase in 10 years.... yes ten years so this decision was taken lightly. :) I'm in IT so lets say I'm a bit anal when it comes to gadgets, computers and anything electronic. This was the 5th TV i reviewed and and was blown away at the specs and most importantly all the great reviews of others. Of all the hours i spent, i found about 5 reviews that were negative, out of 300+ Was instantly satisfied with the "out of box" picture quality. However i knew it could look better. Here are one set of calibrations that work very very well. Takes a bit of time to configure but well worth it!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is our second 46" Samsung. The company makes a great product. We have had many visit and say that the picture is incredible, to the point that we have to ask them to leave at the end of the night.

Pros: Great picture. We will stay with Samsung if they continue with quality like this.

Cons: It took a little time to get the picture adjusted to what I think is optimal. There do not seem to be many apps for the TV itself. Also, if you want to install a camera, you must use a Samsung per the manual.

SharonB. from Oberlin, OH on 8/7/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I checked multiple web sites to look at prices and service. Found one that was $50 less but I knew that I would not get the same kind of service as offered by Crutchfield. My youngest brother recommended you folks and he was right. I have called multiple times for assistance and the service has been excellent.

Pros: The color and clarity on this TV is wonderful. Overall, it's easy to operate. I went to multiple websites to see rankings and reviews.

Cons: More than one review questioned the overall quality of the sound system so I knew what I was getting. If a DVD has been recorded at too low of a volume, then the volume on the TV has to be pushed to it's limit. Has not happened very often and, when able, can add an external sound system. Even with that issue am glad I went with this TV.

Great TV - very happy with my purchase

Jennifer from Galveston, TX on 7/30/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had been considering a TV for a while, but didn't decide to purchase one until I had been awarded a gift card from work. One of the vendors I could use it with was Crutchfield, so I decided to upgrade my TV situation at home (had big old TV). I asked my Dad to help do some research on TV's and we found the Samsung UN46F6300. The TV had great reviews and was the size I was looking for. I have not been disappointed from the second I ordered the TV. The TV was easy to assemble (just be sure to put a little muscle into assembling the base) and the setup was very easy. The picture is wonderful, as is the sound. I'm very pleased with my purchase. I don't have any gaming devices, so can't comment on that, but I do use a DVR and the setup was easy and works wonderful. I'm so happy with the purchase. My Dad likes the TV so much that he is going to be ordering the same TV. I'd also like to commend Crutchfield for WONDERFUL customer service - any questions I have had were handled quickly and efficiently. It was true customer service where the customer was treated with respect and appreciation.

Pros: Good picture/sound; easy to assemble; very nice looking

Cons: Haven't found anything - very happy with the purchase of this TV

Good TV

Mark & Anne from Carnesville, GA on 7/22/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is our first flat screen/HDTV. It's not top-of-the-line, but it is a good TV for the price.

Pros: It weighs much less than the old TV it replaced and has a much clearer picture.

Cons: Can't figure out how to make the remote fully functional for all devices (satellite box/DVD), so still using multiple remotes for some things.

Great TV and great service from Crutchfield

John M from San Diego, CA on 7/7/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this TV after an online chat with Andy, the Crutchfield Advisor. I gave him the parameters of what I was looking for and the type of room it was going to be set up in and he suggested this model. I researched it and decided it fit the bill and made the purchase. It arrived quickly and undamaged and was easy to set up. Couldn't be happier.

Pros: Ease of set-up, quality of picture, e-manual that allows picture and audio changes to be made easily.

Cons: None

An Ideal TV

Andrew Ray from Fullerton, CA. on 5/24/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The F6300 provides stunning LED backlit images for a great price. Purchases through Crutchfield at 35% below market value, this TV was the perfect combo of Smart technology and affordability. Smart features work as well as can be expected with minimal delays. We have had no challenges with any of the apps, including Netflix, HBOGo, and Pandora. With 3 HDMI ports, you should have all you need to connect your HD media devices. The slim design looks gorgeous and will accent any home theatre. The sound is average, as with all flat-panel TVs; best to use a soundbar or additional speakers.

Pros: - Excellent backlight for stunning images. - Reliable Smart features with easy network connectivity. - Easy to use Picture-in-Picture feature to watch TV while playing video games. - Slim-design - Connectivity with mobile and computer devices

Cons: - Sound for HDMI connected devices average at best. - Remote response is a bit slow, but not significantly.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

we've only watched it once. It is for a vacation house. But we are technically challenged and Samsung spent over 30 minutes on the phone with my husband as we walked through the set-up. The picture is fabulous. We have a 52" Sony that is 4 or 5 years old - and another Samsung that is about 3 years old,and the difference in picture quality is visible to me. And we don't have HD service. We have not tried any of the smart features so won't be able to comment on them.

Video Features

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. Auto Motion Plus  reduces blur so that action movies, sports and video games have enhanced clarity.
