This tv was replaced by the Samsung H6400

The Samsung FH6030 LED TV has only two main downsides: its rather high input lag, and its limited viewing angle. Besides that, it is a great TV with very good contrast and little reflection.

Test Results
Picture Quality 7.2
Motion 7.5
Inputs 5.4
Pros
  • Very good contrast ratio.
  • Good motion handling for an LED of its price.
  • Good semi-matte screen. It can also get very bright, so it will not have any problem in a room full of windows.
Cons
  • Only 2 HDMI inputs
  • Higher input lag than average, but still playable.
  • Limited viewing angle. The picture quality is reduced considerably when you watch it at an angle.

Reflection : 2.6 %

It also has fewer reflections than average, which is good for watching movies with the lights on.

In a bright scene, very little light is reflected.

6.4 Viewing angle
Viewing angle : 24 °

Like most Samsung LEDs, it suffers from a very limited viewing angle. If you have people viewing it from the sides, the LG LA6200 has better color uniformity.

The Samsung FH6030 offers both 3D and an excellent picture quality for the price. If you need a wide viewing angle though, you will be better off with an LG TV like the LA6200.
