Samsung F6300 LED TV Review
It was replaced by the Samsung H6350
If you do not want 3D, the Samsung F6300 LED TV is a great choice. Besides its narrow viewing angle, it is a well-rounded LED TV. If you do not need the Smart TV interface though, you should opt for the FH6030 instead.
- Very good motion handling for an LED TV. You will see little amount of blur in video games.
- Good contrast. The blacks are deep even in a dimmed room.
- Limited amount of reflections. It can also get very bright, so it will work great in a living room during the day.
- Average input lag, but it won't be noticeable for the majority of gamers.
- Very narrow viewing angle. It is fine if you sit directly in axis. If you have some viewers on the side though, they will see a slight discoloration and lower contrast.
As with most Samsung TVs, the F6300 has great blacks. It is a good choice for watching TV at night or in a dark room.
Unfortunately, watching the F6300 from even a slight angle will cause it to lose a lot of its color uniformity. If you have viewers all around the TV, go for an LG TV instead, like the LA6200.
It has slightly better uniformity than the average LED TV.
Its semi-matte display is great for daytime watching in rooms with windows.
It performs really well in brightly lit areas.
There is very little blur on the F6300. It is also equipped with motion interpolation and 24p playback, which is useful for movies.
The F6300 has average input lag.

The picture quality of the Samsung F6300 LED TV is very good, no matter the amount of light in your room. It also has a lot of extra features, including a smart TV interface and motion interpolation. If you do not need those, you can save a bit of money by going for a lower-end model like the F5500 or the FH6030. This TV's only negative is its narrow viewing angle.

1) I just exchanged my Sony KDL32W650A for a Samsung UN40F6300 because I had no control over the MotionFlow but I LOVED the picture the Sony produced. I'm having a really hard time calibrating my Samsung, so could you please tell me the calibration settings you used on the UN40F6300?
2) Also, I just read your review for the Samsung FH6030 and the F5500, and they scored better overall than the F6300 (I really did not like seeing the lower contrast score on the F6300 compared to the other two), so I was wondering if one of the two would be a better choice over the F6300 for games and Blu-ray, and if I should exchange mine since I have about a month to do so? (BTW, I've checked and the Panel on my Samsung is a TU02, I don't know if that changes anything.)
3) Lastly, does it matter which HDMI input you use when you rename it "PC" to reduce lag? (I have my Yamaha Receiver hooked to HDMI 2 right now for the ARC when playing stuff from USB ports) Thank you so much for your time, it really does help me make a smarter, more informed choice.
1) Samsung's default settings are usually more off than Sony. We will create a new question to post the calibration settings that we used.
2) The difference is within the variance of the same LED panel, especially for this price range (where the variance is bigger). You can consider all of them to have the same panel. It depends, of course, on the panel lottery and which panel you end up with.
3) From what I recalled, some inputs can't be set to PC, but besides that it shouldn't matter.
