About - Samsung UN50F6800

The Samsung UN50F6800 is a 50-inch LCD HDTV with a native resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p). This TV has a 3D mode that requires the use of special glasses to see three-dimensional images. It has LED backlighting, a more energy-efficient type of backlighting. Rather than the basic 60Hz, it has a faster 600Hz frame rate, a feature designed to reduce motion blur.

This model is Internet-enabled and can access online content, including streaming movie and TV services. It has an Ethernet jack for a wired connection to your home network via a cable. This TV is also Wi-Fi capable, so you can connect it to your home network wirelessly. It is DLNA certified, so you can view digital photos stored on a compatible computer, phone, or other mobile device also connected to your home network.

There are 5 HD-capable inputs: 4 HDMI and 1 component-video, which doubles as a composite-video input. It also has 3 USB ports, which may be used to play media--photos, videos, and music--stored on a flash drive or memory card reader on the TV.

The Samsung UN50F6800 measures 28.5 inches high by 45.8 inches wide by 10.4 inches deep, including its base. The panel itself is 1.8 inches thick including any protrusions, and the screen has a glossy finish. The bezel framing the screen is gloss black with clear border

The warranty on this TV covers parts/labor for 12/12 months, respectively. Other screen sizes in this model line include: UN46F6800 (46"), UN55F6800 (55")

Series 6800 LED TV Defect
Great picture

Home user
I use the TV in my Den as a Home Theater. I chose the TV because of Consumer Reports rated it very High but I was very disappointed when the TV cycled on and off over and over. I soon learned that this has been an ongoing issue for Samsung. I do not recommend because Samsung will not stand by their product after the 90 day window even if its 1 day. Consumer Reports also needs to make consumers aware of this well known issue.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
