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.

Thanks for the question! I have about all the same information as you do in regards to specs. I, unfortunately, do not have any information on the wattage at this time. I will say that you should keep checking back on Samsung.com for any updated information.

Thanks again :)

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.

After a little math, given that the screen is 1920 pixels wide:
- The 40" model has 55 full pixels per inch.
- The 46" model has 48 full pixels per inch.
- The 55" model has 40 full pixels per inch.

(A full pixel is a red/green/blue cluster of subpixels)

Question

What is the "TV-Holder & Screw" used for?

Great TV, but thin on documentation.

This is an included item, but the "QUICK SETUP GUIDE" only lists it as a supplied accessories.

Another Question is Why doesn't Samsung include a user manual. I downloaded the one from the web-site, but after down loading about 167 Mbytes the manual is about 150 PDF files with a black background and white letters. It would use all my ink to try to print this out.

Actually, the "TV Holder and Screw" device you are referring to is used to anchor your TV to the wall. Attach one end to your TV and the other to a wall behind the TV. This keeps the TV from tipping over and helps stabilize it. There are screws inside the bag that comes along with the device.

Thanks for the question! Since Samsung does not perform after purchase calibrations, we do not have the power output numbers available. Also since every calibration is different, there is no set amount of savings or gains for power.

Question

Can a LED TV be located outdoors?

The TV would be enclosed behind a glass window on an outdoor patio so that it would be protected from water damage. Would this be an acceptable place for the television, or would humidity and temperature be a problem? The patio would be outside a building in Dallas, TX.

Great question! I would say that you can take the same steps in protecting your LED television as you would take to protect your LCD or Plasma. Large amounts of humidity, high temperatures and less then adequate ventilation could harm your Samsung LED set as it could an LCD and Plasma set.

I hope this has helped you out :)

You can try to lower the black levels on the set it self. Also try lowering the BackLight Units intensity. If this does not fix the issue, try updating the firmware, that should hopefully fix the issue.

Time will automatically be updated if you use an antenna for over-the-air broadcast TV. Most Digital TV broadcasts have the time encoded in it and if you set the TV time to auto, it will set it for you. No antenna though, and you'll have to set it yourself.

As for the 60hz, it probably sayd that because your source is only 60hz. Your cable box or whatever must be maxed at those settings.

Netflix and USB Adapter

The WIS09ABGN Wireless USB adapter lists the UN40B6000 as one that is supporting "Blu-Ray Live with Netflix" does this mean that I can plug this device into the UN40B6000 and access Netflix through a menu on the TV?

Also, does this TV have standard VESA sized bolt pattersn on the back for mounting with a regular articulating mount?

Thanks in advance.

The "Blu-ray Live with Netflix" means that with a compatible blu-ray player and the Linkstick wireless adapter, you can view your netflix movies on the TV. Unfortunately, you can not directly watch netflix on the TV, you still need a blu-ray player.

Also yes, this unit does have standard Vesa mount bolt pattern, 400mm x 400mm.

I'm sorry for your issue, but I'm not to familiar as to how to rectify this issue without setting the aspect ratio to fit to screen. If you check on page 21 of the users manual, you will see a detailed set up on how to turn your TV into a PC monitor.

When booting up a PS3 game, it displays the resolution and Hz in the top left corner of the TV. Why do the Hz always say 60? Shouldn't it be 120Hz? Currently my true motion settings are on "standard".

Also, what exactly does "Game Mode" do and why is it useful?

That’s a great question. The processor on the Samsung 120Hz/240Hz units will always display at their respective Hz. Even when the signal is only being transmitted at 60Hz, it will always display at 120Hz/240Hz since the processor is always upconverting the signal. Activating the Auto Motion Plus feature will allow for judder reduction and blurring reduction, depending on what settings you activate. This will enhance your 120Hz/240Hz viewing. The reason you are seeing the 60Hz in the info box is because the info box only displays the signal’s actual Hz and screen resolution and not the info of the picture on the screen after the TV processes it. Meaning that the 60Hz you are seeing is the signals actual Hz and not the screen’s Hz. Currently there is no way to display the screen’s Hz in the info box.

Also, Game Mode bypasses some of the TVs processors to give you an almost direct feed of the game signal from your game system. This feature is offered on almost all Samsung TVs.
