Samsung UN75F6300 Review (UN75F6300AF)

75 Inch 120Hz 1080p Smart TV

Samsung UN75F6300The UN75F6300 enjoys some of the best features available on Samsung TVs like their super bright LED edge lit backlighting, 120Hz panel for fast motion sports, and the #1 Smart TV options of any manufacture. Some of the pricier features like active 3D playback, micro dimming, and the slick aesthetics aren't included to keep things value centered. The TV is still expensive at nearly $3000, but the value stands for the size and quality of this LED TV. Samsung hasn't included a TV of this size with a slimmed down feature set like this one in previous lineups, that goes to show how they are trying to please TV shoppers of all kinds.


  • Game Mode makes a big positive impact on input lag
  • Strong value for size and picture quality offered
  • Calibration leads to excellent color reproduction
  • 120Hz refresh rate is great for sports programming, fast action, and video games
  • Solid Black levels and contrast when viewing in the optimal position
  • Smart TV options and Smart Hub and Wifi performance
  • 4 HDMI and 3 USB Inputs are more than enough for the home theater


  • Semi-Matte screen finish doesn't have as deep an image as top tier TVs
  • Pronounced contrast degrading at side angles
  • Using the web browser with the remote is a lot of work
  • Sound quality: Volume good on background and music – poor with voice


  • No 3D
  • Backlit basic Remote

    Picture Quality Rating: 8.6/10

    The UN75F6300 has full 10-point white balance adjustment option which makes it easy to calibrate out of the gate. As a result colors are accurate and D6500K is easily achieved. The 75F6300 is loaded with tons of extra picture adjustment options, but we left them off in the end as they can cause more harm than benefit to the picture quality. Black performance on the F6300 is strong for an LED TV as long as you keep the backlight control located in the picture settings at a reasonable level. Side viewing angle quality is pretty bad on this one with degrading contrast and fading colors from extreme side angles. While this is inherently a problem with LED backlighting. It is especially prevalent on the F6300. Keeping the backlight at a reasonable level helps a bit. The black bars appearing when watching 16:9 content appear rich and inky from front and center, but appear more dark purple from the sides.

    The F6300 gives a good sense of depth in this shot, even without 3D like the F6400 has. The contrast in this shot leads to some elements being washed out in the background

    Auto Motion Plus

    We recommend no matter what picture mode you watch, that you go into this setting in the Advanced Picture menu, tune the feature to Custom then turn the Blur Reduction to 10, and the Judder Reduction to 0. Or you can just set it to off. The judder reduction part of this feature does too much to distort the picture including eliminating too much natural background blur, actually accentuating judder/jerky motion effects when the camera pans slowly, and creating motion artifacts. One of the only situations where we found this feature remotely helpful on the F6300 was watching upscaled DVDs. Turn it on and adjust until it looks just right.

    This shot is a good example for color rendition on the F6300. Colors are bright without being over saturated. Also a fair amount of detail comes through in light and dark areas, although we have seen better performance out of LCD/LED TVs

    Gaming - Game Mode Gets Rid of Input Lag

    Getting to the Game Mode
    Go to the Systems menu near the bottom of the main menu. Scroll down to the General settings and open that menu. Game Mode is located here. It seems like a pain to dig into the menus like this to turn it on or off.

    Okami HD really brought out the colors of the 75F6300. Game mode is perfect for an action game like this one

    Turning on the Game Mode is the best way to go for gaming on the 75F6300. The picture mode in Game Mode has its own settings, and initially look pretty bad. Don't let this throw you off. Since Standard is the only available picture mode while Game Mode is on you'll have to take the time to turn the sharpness down to 10 or less, the Color Space to Auto, Dynamic Contrast to Off, Color Tone to Warm1, and the Screen Size to Screen Fit. Adjust the Backlight and Brightness to your personal preference and appropriate level for the room light. This will provide a decent picture quality as well as a cut down on input lag. This made Okami HD and Crysis for the PS3 look fantastic and the input lag was negligible at a decent 30ms.

    Smart TV - Lots of Options

    Samsung still has the best Internet Apps selection around. The categories are: Videos, Most Popular, Games, Sports, Lifestyle, Information, Education. There is much better free content than the other brands out there and the paid Apps are better and more reasonably priced as well. The Premium Apps such as the movie services, sports and music are also top notch and include the usual Netflix, You Tube (though we like the normal You Tube through the Browser better), Facebook (same here), Twitter, Vudu, Amazon, Hulu Plus. Thanks to the new HVEC Codec mentioned below streaming video looks much better. And it all runs on a dual core processor to keep things speedy.

    Remote and Menu System – Very Nice

    Samsung UN75F6300 Menu
    Here is a shot of the menu. It's easy to read and navigate between the menus. The right-hand side shows everything that is in the sub-menu or gives an explanation of the menu item

    Samsung's 2013 menu system is organized very well and easy to use. It's also colorful and attractive and the tutorial beside various settings are included and good information to explain some of the more complicated picture settings that you probably do not want to use, but may be curious about. Dedicated keys on the backlit remote take you to Smart TV options on the F6300.


    4 HDMI inputs and 3 USB inputs head up a very complete load of inputs for connectivity.

    Wifi and Web Browser Included

    The Wifi setup seemed initially easy to set up but then caught a glitch and it took some time to get the TV connected. The web browser is at least a real Internet browser – allowing search through Bing as the primary outlet.

    Audio Quality - Not Too Sound

    The 75F6300 has some issues with sound quality. There is plenty of volume during music and background noice, but a clear lack of voice volume and clarity – even when using the Clear Voice option in the menu. We tried everything, all the settings, the equalizer and could not find an option that we felt improved the audio quality. Sound quality gets a 6 out of 10 for me on the F6300.

    Appearance and Design

    The UN75F6300 is not going to win best-looking but it's attractive nonetheless with a bit more understated design than the top end almost frame less LED TVs. The thin charcoal black half inch framing bezel has an acrylic clear edge and the panel is around 2 inches in depth. The 75 inch version of this model doesn't get the 4-legged stand like the other in the series. It gets a standard square black stand to ensure its stability with the large screen. It also loses the 15 to 20 degree swivel.

    Value – Bang for the Buck Rating: 8.5/10

    The UN75F6300 can be had for around $3000. This provides excellent picture quality on a huge screen with the excellent Smart Hub. The heaviest competition comes from value models like Sharp and Vizio that really push the larger LED TVs. Sharp's LC-80LE650U comes at nearly the same price with an extra 5 inches of screen space while the Vizio E701i is almost half the price. The Sony KDL-70R550A is also a contender but loses 5 inches of viewing space.

    Overall Rating: 8.5
