3D Technology Checklist

This product is 3D-related. To help you get a great 3D experience, use the checklist below to ensure you have everything you need. 3D viewing requires:

A Display
First, you'll need a 3D-ready display--whether it's a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays have more processing power than standard 2D models for displaying 3D images in rapid succession.
A Source
Your display may be ready for 3D playback, but you'll still need a device to read 3D content. This can be a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3 system.
3D Content
3D content--the actual entertainment, in other words--will be played back using the source mentioned above, whether it's a 3D broadcast from your cable provider, a 3D Blu-ray Disc, or a 3D video game.
3D Glasses
For now, the vast majority of 3D HDTVs require glasses for 3D viewing. Many use powered "active shutter" glasses, others polarized "passive" glasses. You'll need one pair per viewer, and they'll have to be compatible with your display, whether they're the same brand, or a pair of "universal" glasses designed to work across brands.
HDMI Cable
To connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, you'll need a high-speed HDMI cable. Cables with this designation feature bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second), for carrying the 3D signal without any loss of quality.

If you want to get more information about 3D, shop our 3D products, watch videos, or interact with other customers, we invite you to visit 3D 101, our customer center about everything 3D.

Internet-Ready Devices

Internet-Ready Television

Internet-ready devices use your broadband connection to deliver dynamic content to your television, whether it's streaming video from Netflix, new music from Pandora, or a quick glance at today's weather forecast.

Although there is overlap, each manufacturer offers a unique bundle of free or paid services, including streaming video and music, social networking apps, online photo galleries, news and financial updates, weather info, sports scores, and a variety of other smartphone-like applications.

Manufacturers continue to add new content to their offerings, keeping customers current through firmware updates, and making a bit of research a prudent step in your buying decision.

Learn more about Internet-ready devices and HDTVs, how they work, what services are offered by different manufacturers, and exactly what you'll need to get started at our Internet TV 101 customer center.

Samsung's D6400 LED HDTV series offers Full HD picture quality and entertainment possibilities galore.

More Screen, Less Frame

Cinema-quality 3D experience

3-Dimensional TVs add new depth and dimension to create larger-than-life experiences. 3D Active Glasses sync up with the 3D TV to produce 3D images that virtually leap off the screen. Favorite shows can even be transformed to 3D in real time for the ultimate "reality" TV.

Slim and Stylish LED HDTV

LED backlighting is not only more energy-efficient than its CCFL counterpart, it allows for a slimmer television design, allowing the UN46D6400 to check in at just over an inch deep without its stand. Samsung's ultra-thin bezel design adds to the visual appeal, making this display almost all screen, and a worthy addition to most any room.

The UN46D6400 also features Samsung's "Touch of Color" design, which blends a hint of amber color into the traditional piano black bezel frame, for eye-catching style even when your TV is turned off.


Experience cinematic-quality 3D entertainment in the comfort of your living room or upconvert regular 2D programming to immersive 3D.
Samsung UN46D8000 Smart TV

Easily search for movies, shows and videos via online services and across connected devices, browse the web from your television, chat with friends, and access a wide variety of apps from Samsung Apps.

Samsung Apps is a growing collection of apps specifically built for your TV, connecting you to your favorite digital content like videos, sports, games, social networking, and much more. With web-connected apps on your Samsung Smart TV, you can stream movies from Netflix or Blockbuster, TV shows from Hulu, videos from YouTube, Next Level sports information from ESPN, music from, Pandora and view updates on your Facebook or Twitter accounts. The apps that matter to you, now available on your TV.

Auto Motion Plus 120Hz with Clear Motion Rate

Auto Motion Plus 120Hz brings action movies and sports to life in the living room, thanks to frame-to-frame smooth motion. This technology eliminates motion blur by calculating the image and inserting it, creating a non-repetitive transition from one frame to the next. Blur is virtually eliminated and clarity enhanced, for smooth, lifelike motion.

1080p Full HD With Four HDMI Inputs

The UN46D6400 delivers Full HD 1080p resolution, for a superb level of detail and clarity in your picture. To connect your sources, four HDMI inputs are provided, for delivering a Full HD picture and audio over a single cable.

Exceeds ENERGY STAR Standards

The UN46D6400 taps into the energy efficiency of LED backlighting, and exceeds the strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and US Department of Energy by up to 50%. That means you get lower utility costs, and a smaller carbon footprint.

ConnectShare Movie

Connect a thumb drive or digital camera quickly and easily via one of the UN46D6400's USB ports. An intuitive, user-friendly interface allows access to videos, music, or pictures via the remote.

Wide Color Enhancer Plus

The challenge of any TV screen is to recreate reality through color and light. Samsung takes on this challenge with their Wide Color Enhancer Pro feature. After analyzing each pixel, it stretches them to their 3-dimensional limit. What you get is the entire spectrum of color and luminance for rich, saturated images with intense detail.

AllShare DLNA Networking

For even more entertainment options, the UN46D6400 lets you connect to your home network and stream music, videos, and photos from other DLNA Certified devices (your computer, network storage drive, etc.).

Ultra Clear Panel

Absorbing ambient light, Samsung's Ultra Clear Panel eliminates reflections, boosts contrast ratio, and creates a comfortable viewing environment. Enjoy crisp image details, natural skin tones, excellent shadow detail, and vibrant colors.

Size Name: 46-Inch Verified Purchase
After several months of using this TV, here are my impressions. Note that I'm using Antenna HD, PS3 Bluray, and DVD.

Design:

The thin bezel design and glass(stem) stand is gorgeous, it feels like the picture is floating on the stand. The thin bezel really enhances the picture by minimizing reflections. It's really refreshing to not have a thick glossy bezel shining at you when watching TV; although the bezel itself seems to get mighty hot after several hours of use. The screen is glass and it does have reflections in daylight. It will probably annoy those of you that have a lot of glare coming from windows.

Picture Quality:

HD picture quality is outstanding while SD ranges from good to OK. The SD quality really depends on your broadcasting source; higher quality SD means good SD picture. Blacks are good, but I believe the processing engine goes a bit overboard and saturates the blacks to a point where details are lost. I haven't found out how to tone down the blacks, even after shutting off all the processing. Colors seem to really pop out, if it's too much one can adjust RGB in the menus. Initially, this TV did not exhibit any noticeable clouding for several months but now I can clearly see clouding on a completely dark transition screen. I'm a bit disappointed it has developed clouding over time, but it's not bad enough that you'll notice it during tv viewing. This is an edge-lit LCD and there are inherit weaknesses. Motion picture quality is very smooth and artifacts are kept to a minimum; in fact, this is the smoothest picture I've ever seen on any HDTV.

Adjustment Controls:

This TV has quite a few options for tuning the picture. There's standard, dynamic, natural, and movie modes. Each mode has it's own saved settings.

Size Name: 55-Inch Verified Purchase
I have only had the television for 3 days now, but here are my initial impressions:

The picture is absolutely stunning. I upgraded from a 50' Samsung DLP that I'd had for about 7 years. I truly didn't realize what I was missing with the technology advancements of 1080P LCDs and LEDs over the last few years. My wife and I will be watching HDTV in either 1080i or 720p and look at each other and say this doesn't look like "normal" TV. We finally figured it out last night. The picture is so clear that television shows truly appear to us as if we're looking through a window into somebody's home or perhaps watching a live performance/sporting event. We can even start to decipher how "fake" some of the sets are that the producers are using on many of the sitcoms.

Watching a Blu-ray is almost like watching a video game. The frame rate and clarity are so much improved over previous generation sets that it really gives you a whole new movie-watching experience. Blu-rays might take some getting used to for me because they are so life-like that I tend to just stare in awe rather than paying attention to the movie.

The 3D function of the television also blew me away. I really wasn't sure what to expect here, but took a leap of faith because the price was so incredible. Not only does the 3D create depth when you are watching 3D blu-rays. The picture actually comes at you as if you were in the theater. So far the only experiences I've had with 3D are with a couple of the IMAX 3D blu-rays that I purchased on Amazon. The 2D to 3D function is a bit gimmicky. I've used it to watch baseball games and the NHL playoffs and it does add a little depth to the picture, but probably not enough difference for me to have to wear the glasses all the time.

The good:
Gorgeous appearance. Unusually slim bezel. Very thin. Barely warm when used (very low power consumption). Lots of apps including Vimeo streaming.
Glossy screen to my surprise appeared reasonably dark and without interfering glare even in bright sun lit room.
The bad:
First and major one - absolutely unusable for 3D viewing. Crosstalk is unbearable, totally spoiling 3d immersion. Originally got 3100 glasses. Samsung support told me to get newer, 3300 glasses for this TV. Over hundred bucks later - exactly same issue. I'm convinced that there is no difference, at least for this TV, if 3100 or 3300 glasses are used. For this thing alone this TV does not worth it's price.
Second - uniformity. Very bad on black (light spots), and even mid gray has some problems - one dark blob. (I did not notice any problem on bright white). On black both lower corners are bright to almost unbearable interference with picture. Samsung support told me to hold my conclusion till after over 600 hours of use, auto conditioning supposed to take care of it by then. Well, I don't think I will have 600 hours on this TV even after one year and I don't have intention to tolerate it. If screen conditioning required - it should be done at factory before shipment to customer. I call ... on it.
Third - dynamic local dimming. Not advertised but it is obvious to me that this model uses local dimming. It is poorly implemented and I see no option to turn it off in any video mode. As it is dynamic - there is many way it appears and spoils the picture. When used for apps - local dimming is disabled.
Minor thing - out of the box all picture "enhancement" stuff turned to the max producing unpleasing, pasterized image. Takes some tweaking to get it back to normal.
