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

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.

The 3.5mm jack you see along the side of the unit is for audio in from a PC, not for audio out. Unfortunately there is not a headphone jack; however you can still connect a headphone set to this unit. Using a RCA to 3.5mm female connector, you can connect the headphones to the audio out (red,white) on the back of the TV.

As far as I know, it would be the black to white to black response time or on-to-off-to-on. Directly from Samsung.com: "Response time refers to the amount of time it takes a pixel to "refresh" itself-to go from being active to being inactive, (ready to be re-activated). The lower the milliseconds, the faster the response time."

As a matter of fact, Auto Motion Plus is an on/off feature. In order to adjust the settings to AMP, you will want to head into the TV's menu, then to the Picture sub-menu. Once there, head into the "Picture Options" option. With in this new screen you will see "Auto Motion Plus" along the bottom. There you will be able to adjust AMP to be either off or on (though the on function has 3 different settings depending on model).

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.

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).

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.

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)

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.
