According to Consumer Reports it averages $32 per year in electricity based on 8 hours of usage a day and national electric rates. In comparison, this is inexpensive compared to 40 inch LCD's which range from the $30's to $60's range.

I second the suggestion to use the component cable for the Wii. The picture is indeed much clearer than the standard composite cable that the Wii ships with. Just make sure you change the Wii settings to widescreen 480p.

For the Wii, you should pick up the official Nintendo component cables and go through the component input. For a DVD player, HDMI would be best if it's available, especially if it's an upconverting DVD or Bluray player. If it's not, put the DVD player in Component or get an component switcher for the Wii and DVD

In order to connect your 6000 series Samsung LED TV to your home network wirelessly, you will want to look at the WIS09ABGN wireless linkstick.

http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/...

However, in order to view files from your computer on your 6000 series, you need to have a hard wire connection to your router since the 6000 does not offer wireless DLNA.

40" LED model un40b6000 touch of red feature

Why does the Samsung internet site advertise "Touch of Red" feature on this model  when it does not have "Touch of Red".   I purchased this model in June 2009 and thought it had this feature and found that it does not.

ToC refers to the hue of the bezel as well as the manufacturing process used to create the bezel. The red coloring on the bezel of the 6000 should be at the very edge of the unit and becomes more intense depending on where you have the TV located (bright walls will bring out the color more).

As a matter of fact, the UN40B6000 does have sound leveling. If you head into the TV’s menu, then under the “Sound” sub-menu, you will see the option “Auto Volume”. Clicking on this option will allow your to toggle the feature on or off.

Although i can not say how "obvious" is the ToC on the 6000 series is, I will say that you will be able to see the ToC on the bezel, which for the 6000 series is a red color. I would suggest you go to your local retailer that offers this set and determine it for your self.

If you purchase the unit within the North American Territories, it will only have support for NTSC/ATSC/QAM broadcasting systems and only 100v-127v 60Hz power. Outside of the NA territories you will not only need a converter for the broadcast, but also for the power. Samsung does not sell PAL units outside of the PAL territories.

Dimming Issue

I have found that when there is alot of black on a screen (like the turn off system screen of a PS3) that the sidelit dimming causes the whole screen to dim including the white menu items. I have noticed this happens on various screens with all black backgrounds. Is there way to adjust this in the menus of the TV?

Question

How good is the ATSC tuner for the UN40B6000 ?

I only have OTA (antenna) reception. I do not have cable or satellite. The ATSC tuner performance is a primary concern. Currently I have an older Samsung HLR 6178W DLP HDTV with fair ATSC tuner performance and performance that is inferior to a Zenith DTT900 converter box. Since there are no tuner specifications or even comments, how good is the UN40B6000 tuner performance for ATSC digital TV reception?

Although I can not speak for any one else, from personal experience (having 2 different Samsung TVs), the tuner on our TVs offer great performance for both cable and OTA signal processing and display. Perhaps another user that has a dedicated OTA connection can chime in on this and give their opinion as well.

Great question. From the manual:
"When connecting [a composite cable to the TV], match the color of the connector to the [Component] jack.
Connect the video cable to the COMPONENT IN [Y/VIDEO] jack and the audio cable to the COMPONENT IN [R-AUDIOL]
jacks.
If you have a ‘mono’ (non-stereo) VCR, use a Y-connector (not supplied) to connect to the right and left audio input jacks
of the TV. Alternatively, connect the cable to the ‘R’ jack. If your VCR is stereo, you must connect two cables.
When connecting to AV IN, the color of the AV IN [Y/VIDEO] jack (Green) does not match the color of the video cable
(Yellow)."

Thanks for the question! If you head into the TV's menu, then to the Setup sub-menu, you will see the option for "Light Effect". Once you enter this option, you should be given the ability to adjust the front light's intensity and even if it stays on or off while the TV is in operation.

I wouldn't suggest using any chemicals on the screen. Just a non-abrasive cloth and some clean and purified water would do just fine. Make sure the water has no added minerals or chemicals to it, since that may lead to mineral deposits on the screen.
