Our take on the Samsung UN60F6300

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. Reducing motion blur is a clear benefit on a screen this big and sharp.

More ways to connect to your digital entertainment

Two types of connections have become truly universal in recent years: HDMI and USB. The UN60F6300 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 UN60F6300 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 UN60F6300'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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Really like this TV. The picture is great, sound is good. Looks like it was discontinued, but am very happy with my purchase

Pros: Price

Cons: None So Far

Very Satisfied

TsavoLion from Downingtown, PA on 1/9/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very happy with this purchase. I had some regrets over paying for the smart features, as I didn't think I would use them. However, the way the TV integrates with my Samsung S3 is awesome. I can wirelessless show pictures that are on my phone. I can pull up a YouTube video on my phone, click an icon, and the TV launches the YouTube app and starts the same video. Same for Netflix, and I am sure other entertainment apps. This integration makes streaming content much, much easier. This is great for times when I need to put quickly put something on to get my kid's attention, or to share a video with guests. The only downside is that the sound comes through the TV instead of my receiver when I used these features. The picture quality is remarkable. The factory settings gave a very bad soap-opera effect ( it was like watching a play that had been filmed with a camcorder). Not being very into the spec/tech element, I search online for calibration settings and found one that I liked. Guests have complimented me on the picture and have expressed their jealousy which is strangely satisfying. Mounting was easy, though it would have been helpful to know what size bolts I needed for the bracket. I used the bracket from my older TV, and the new TV needed bigger bolts to attach it to the bracket. It took a couple trips to the hardware store to find the right size

Pros: Great picture Great apps Streams fast

Cons: Very bright - this took some getting used to. Combined with the soap-opera effect, I thought I was going to have to send it back in the first few days. Our eyes have adjusted, and now I love it.

Chris D from Cincinnati on 12/17/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I give the TV and service from Crutchfeild 5 stars. The TV is fantastic. The picture and colors are great. The simplisity of the set up and the wifi is great. The shipping and delivery was very stress free and recomend this TV to anyone that is looking for a great 60" TV. However the fly in the oinment is the remote. It SUCKS. Samsung needs to design a better lay out for the buttons. We watch a lot of recorded TV and Movies and Samsung decided to put these play, pause and ff and rewind buttons on the bottom. So every time you push one of these buttons the remote is unbalanced and you drop it. It should be in the middle and the Samsung app buttomn on the bottom. Plus why do you put pause between ff and reverse? Play should go there with pause under play. If samsung fixes this it would be perfect. I give the remote zero stars. I just went back to my cable remote and stored the samsung remote unless we need it to change between the different devices.

Pros: Simple set up, wifi, colors, shipping, size, and crutchfeild customer services

Cons: Remote,Remote and Remote

Smarter than smart

godfather from NewYork on 12/15/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great TV, for the price. After buying this smart tv, my previous smart 55' samsung tv, doesn't seem "as smart anymore". The samsung smart hub is a great feature, and works great with satellite, and cable boxes.

Pros: Smart features, IR included Device

Cons: haven't found one yet

Samsung TV Rocks

Bruce J. from Huntington Beach CA on 12/12/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unreal picture. It is a 2D set that really shows depth. Very impressive showing HD movies. Don't care much about the Smart part since I use Apple TV and Netflix. Am really happy with it.

Pros: Picture is outstanding. Can't rate sound because we use a ZVOX we got from Crutchfield. Have a 50" samsung plasma that this new set blows away in picture quality and we thought the plasma was aces.

Cons: The only nit is that when we use the ZVOX which is external, a message comes on telling us not to do it and use the external control. Stupid and annoying.

Samsung Smart TV

Walleye from Iowa on 7/28/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was looking for the best performance and the best value without paying for 3-D. I have no interest in having to wear a separate pair of glasses to experience 3-D. This series of Samsung seems to have exactly what I was looking for. The 60 in. screen is amazing in color and depth and it was pretty much awesome right out of the box. I am using the included stand on a corner designed furniture stand, a small distance from the walls. I am quite pleased with sound of the built in speakers and while I have a separate audio sound system hooked up, I don't really feel the need to use it except for high volume music sources. I had read some negative reviews of the sound of some TV's so now I wonder if that is more an issue of how the TV is mounted or positioned. All in all I am extremely pleased with this TV and find it to be an excellent value from Crutchfield.

Pros: Awesome picture, good sound and good features.

Cons: None so far

Great TV!

Todd from New York, NY on 7/19/2013

This TV is awesome. The picture quality is, in my opinion, the best on the market. I'm coming from an LG, and the processing speed in the TV is much better when using Smart TV apps.

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. Advanced panels and unique backlight technology combine with proprietary algorithms to reduce the response time and yield a more accurate image reproduction with faster onscreen motion. Auto Motion Plus can be set to Clear, Standard, Smooth, Custom, or Off.

Wide Color Enhancer Plus: Wide Color Enhancer Plus allows you to see picture color the way the director originally intended. Witness the entire RGB spectrum brought to life on your screen to bring you exceptionally vibrant, yet natural-looking images faithful to the director's original intent.

Motion Lighting: The TV automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen in response to the brightness of the room. In bright light, the screen brightens. In dim light, the screen dims.

HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.

1080p Resolution: The LED-LCD television displays all inputs at a resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080). The television's HDMI and component video inputs will accept 1080p (24/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video signals.

  • HDMI (v.1.4): The Samsung LED-LCD TV features four HDMI 1.4 inputs to connect to your Blu-ray/DVD player, Satellite/Cable receiver, or AV receiver. In addition, any HDMI input can be used to connect a PC to this TV.
  • Component Video: The Samsung LED-LCD TV features a single component video input. The TV's component video input can also be used as a composite video input (480i only).

Picture Control: You can make the following adjustments for an optimum picture.

  • Picture Sizes: You can choose one of the following screen sizes.
    • 16:9: Sets the picture to 16:9 wide mode.
    • Zoom 1: Vertically enlarges the size of the picture and allows you to move the enlarged picture using the arrows on the remote.
    • Zoom 2: Vertically enlarges the size of the picture more than Zoom 1 and allows you to move the enlarged picture using the arrows on the remote.
    • Wide Fit: Proportionally enlarges the picture to fit the entire screen without changing the aspect ratio.
    • 4:3: Sets the picture to 4:3 normal mode with pillars on the left and right of the screen.
    • Screen Fit: See the full image with no resizing when HDMI (720p/1080i/180p) or Component (1080i/1080p) signals are inputted.
    • Smart View 1/2: Reduces the 16:9 picture by 50% (1) or 25% (2).
  • Picture Modes: Picture Modes apply preset adjustments to the picture.
    • Dynamic: increases the brightness of the screen (suitable for bright rooms)
    • Standard: suitable for a normal environment

Audio Features

DTS Premium Sound: The Samsung LED-LCD TV offers DTS Premium Sound with DTS TruSurround and DTS TruDialog.

  • DTS TruSurround: DTS TruSurround is a patented DTS technology that solves the problem of playing 5.1 multichannel content over two speakers. DTS TruSurround delivers a compelling, virtual surround sound experience through any two-speaker playback system, including the internal television speakers. It is fully compatible with all multichannel formats.
  • DTS TruDialog: This function allows you to increase the intensity of a voice over background music or sound effects so that dialogue  can be heard more clearly.

Dolby Digital Pulse: Optimizes the TV sound quality when viewing and listening to Internet movies, Internet music, and other content played back from your wired or wireless network connection.

Sound Position: The speakers of this TV provide different sound images according to how you position the television. You can select between "Wall-Mount" or "Stand" to provide the best sound quality based on the television's placement.

Sound Modes: You can choose from the following Preset Sound Modes:

  • Standard: Selects the normal sound mode.
  • Music: Emphasizes music over voices.
  • Movie: Provides the best sound for movies.
  • Clear Voice: Emphasizes voices over other sounds.
  • Amplify: Amplify mode is for people who have difficulty hearing.

Equalizer: You can manually adjusts the TV's built-in 5-band EQ (100 Hz, 300 Hz, 1 kHz, 3 kHz, and 10 kHz) for a more customized sound.

Auto Volume: Auto Volume automatically adjusts the volume of the desired channel, lowering the sound output when the modulation signal is high or raising the sound output when the modulation signal is low. This reduces the difference in volume when changing channels. The Auto Volume feature can be set to Normal, Night or Off.

Audio Delay: The Audio Delay function corrects audio/video mismatch, when watching TV or video, and listening to a digital audio output using an external device such as an AV receiver. You can adjust the audio delay from 0ms to 250 ms.

Picture Off: You can turn the television's screen off and still listen to audio.

Audio Outputs: The Samsung LED-LCD television provides an analog and digital audio output.

  • Digital Audio (Dolby Digital/DTS compatible): The optical digital output terminal will output Dolby Digital/DTS (when available) or 2 channel PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital/DTS when receiving Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the tuner, network apps, and USB ports on the LED-LCD TV. The optical digital audio output will only output in 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI or  RCA.
  • Analog Audio: The television features a 3.5mm (minijack) audio output for connecting the television to an analog 2-channel receiver. You will need a minijack-to-RCA adapter (119MCON2M, sold separately) to make a stereo RCA connection between the television and your soundbar speaker or AV receiver. 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. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The audio from the TV's tuner, network connection, and USB port can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch PCM. HDMI and analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.

Note:  Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 2 input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.

Network/USB Functions

Samsung's Dual Core Processor: Samsung's Dual Core processing speeds allow you to perform multiple tasks at the same time, such as using an app while downloading another one. It also enables faster web browsing and application access.

Network Connection (wired/wireless): You can set up the Samsung LED-LCD TV so that it can access your home network and online Samsung Apps through your local area network (LAN) using a wired (RJ-45 Ethernet) or wireless connection (built-in WiFi).

Note: The TV's built-in WiFi supports IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless LAN networks and WEP (open/shared), WPA-PSK (TKIP/AES), WPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES) network security.

WiFi Direct: When using WiFi Direct, you can connect directly with other devices without using a wireless router. You'll be able to wirelessly transfer personal content (such as photos & videos) to the Samsung LED-LCD TV without connecting to your home network. WiFi Direct completely bypasses your WiFi access point/router, so it's easy to set up. Streaming of copy-protected content and other certain formats are not supported.

AllShare/DLNA Certified: The Samsung LED-LCD TV's AllShare function, along with its DLNA Certification allow you to watch videos (Divx/AVI/H.264/MPEG/MKV/MOV/WMV), photos (JPEG/PNG/BMP/MPO), and listen to music (MP3/WMA/AAC/FLAC/OGG) saved on your Windows PC (or other DLNA Certified media server) through the TV via its Ethernet (LAN) port or built-in WiFi (wireless). This eliminates the need to copy your photo, video, and music files to a separate USB storage device.

Note: Windows PCs with XP and Vista installed require Samsung's PC Share Manager software, which can be downloaded for free at Not compatible with older Windows OS versions and Mac.

Screen Mirroring: This Screen Mirroring function lets you view the screen of your WiFi-enabled Samsung Android smart phone or tablet (with support for AllShare Cast) on the Samsung LED-LCD TV.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

I've installed WiFi and use it to listen to the music stored on one of the computers in my home. With an external soundbar, the improvement over the internal speakers is significant. I've also been able to use this TV as a monitor for my iPad--though the resolution isn't exactly high definition--but useful for showing friends my photos. [ Robert  Dec 11, 2014 ]
I think it is worth it. That is how I watch netflix. It made it so much nicer not to have to run another cable to the tv and it has never had an issue. If your wireless network is on the same wall as your tv, don't do it..just run a short cable, but if not..I would do it. [ BRYAN M  Dec 14, 2013 ]
I'm not sure. I have hooked my TV up with Ethernet cable thus I have not tried the wifi capability. Wifi is probably OK however, my basic belief is that if you can hook it up with ethernet cable, do it. If you don't have an ethernet cable hookup, then I guess you have no choice. [ WILLIAM B  Dec 12, 2013 ]
If you use netflix it is [ CHARLIE  Dec 10, 2013 ]
It's a great TV. For perspective, I don't have or want a smart phone. I purchased my TV from the closeout section and saved over $325.00. I don't use the smart TV features. They strike me as a way for manufacturers to make more money and providers to get their hands into your wallet. I'll rent or buy movies, already have more music than I can listen to and I'm using my laptop for this response. [ ROBERT  Dec 10, 2013 ]
Hi Ann, Yes, I would get built in Wi-F unless you have an Ethernet outlet right behind your TVi. I have replaced all my Blu-Ray players to ones with built in Wi-Fi as well. It makes it really nice to do updates without having to run a 100' Ethernet line around and get behind your TV, Blu-Ray, Receiver and other devices to update them. [ JEFFREY J  Dec 10, 2013 ]
I have my TV directly wired. It is a great HDTV, but I do not know about the WIFI.. I might have WIFI capability-I do not know. [ FRANK  Dec 09, 2013 ]
In my opinion, since we watch netflix and Facebook it is we'll worth it. We looked at it like this we are buying a tv for at least 10 years. So why get buyers remorse if you can afford it. There are functions that need wifi too. So I would say yes it is. [ SILKE  Dec 09, 2013 ]
Ann: I got the Wi-Fi option, but I have only used it once. It would be a great option if it was easier to operate. To use the Wi-Fi option you have to use the remote control to type in a web address. To me, it is just a little tedious to do on the remote. I don't have kids, so I guess it does not have a lot of use. The good part is that you can go to, for example, Discovery Channel, and watch old programs that you may have missed. However, I have only used the function once. I hope this answers your question. If not, email back. cheers: h. [ HEYWARD  Dec 09, 2013 ]
If you are a big internet and Facebook user it is we'll worth it [ Arthur  Dec 09, 2013 ]
I would spend the extra money to have the capibility. We feel it is better to have the capibility and not need it than to need it and not have the capibility [ WILLIAM F  Dec 09, 2013 ]
I have not used the wi-Fi capability, nor do I have a plan to do so. So I am not a good person to ask. But the picture on this TV is amazing; with a blu-ray player or regular cable TV as a source. [ LIONEL R  Dec 09, 2013 ]
Hey Ann, if you don't have your tv hooked to any other components with wifi then yes get it. I have the features and it's nice to have, but my bluray player and directv box are also on wifi, so I have wish I had known to not get that on the tv too. [ JEAN LOUIS  Dec 09, 2013 ]
So far it hasn't but as fast as technology changes and programs requiring wifi are developed Nd released, we would rather have the wifi and not need it than need it and not have it. Bottom line , I would spend the the money to have the wifi capability. [ WILLIAM F  Dec 09, 2013 ]
If wifi is the only differentiating factor for this model then no. There are cheaper ways to get internet access to a tv, including wireless access points, powerline networking, etc... [ JEFFREY  Dec 09, 2013 ]
