Samsung makes a great TV.. They have quality panels and have good reliability..
However.... This is kind of pricey for a 32 inch.. Maybe worth it to some who like the gimmicky 3D.. 3D on a screen this size seems like a waste... IMO...

From woot's specs:

"Clear Motion Rate: 200/240Hz"

This is confusing.

This is what's on Samsung's site too from a link posted above, but for a 240hz tv, that would seem to be a really slow CMR. 240hz seem to have CMRs over 700, 120hz have CMRs over 200. Not sure what happened here.

This would seem to be more a 120hz tv than a 240, though I may be interpreting things wrong.

Kind of confused by this offering. If you are going to buy a 3D TV (which personally I still think is gimmicky) would this not be more suited for like a home theater type environment in your house? Who would use a 32" TV for a home theater when the price of a 60" TV's start at like $800? If you just needed a 32" TV in like a living room or bedroom you don't need 3D and the clear motion rate thing at 240hz is really not going to give you that much advantage on a 32" screen.

Thank you in advance.


Sorry, we can't hold shipping. Best bet would be to ship it to a family member or friend.

I have a Samsung 3D Plasma, and I do not regularly use the 3D function. You lose resolution (from what I've read) unless you watch full Blu-Ray 3D discs. So your gorgeous picture drops in clarity and then looks dimmer when you convert a 2D show to 3D. There is also the problem of limited content availablity. Unless you are going to by discs, you will not be using the feature. You can get some 3D from OnDemand services, but usually lower resolution stuff.

That said, I never been wowed by a gimmick like 3D except when I sat with my children and watch the Polar Express in blu-ray 3D. The difference is incredible and the effects are amazing. Not so many pop-out effects, but the depth of field is so much more alive and clear.

About the price, check your Sunday flyers. For a 1080 32" this is a good price and it's Samsung. The "less expensive" 32" are different (off) brands and all 720. Pays your money, takes your choice.

Something is not right here... Model UN32EH6030 does not exist anywhere else, including Samsung's own website ... and my UN32EH5300 which is not 3D is still priced at $447+ at 15+ stores. I have a hard time believing that this is a truly a Samsung TV

You do know that you don't need glasses to watch this TV you only need the glasses when watching a 3D movie.I don't think anyone would only watch 3D movies but for the few extra dollars why not have that option. I have a 32" 3D passive Tv in my home office and I love that option,I will not buy another HD TV without 3D.

Also if you're dumb looking you can blame the glasses so that's a plus

Puzzled without coffee,



Samsung E series TVs all use active 3d. The glasses coming with it are battery-powered and are not rechargeable. They use one CR2032 which in my experience gives about 35 hours of battery life.

People who do not own a 3D tv say this. I have one - it is awesome! My parents laughed at me when I bought it. Then they came to visit me and we all watched Puss n Boots 3D with my daughter. My dad wants one now (but bigger than mine, of course >.>)

Oh, Magilla Gorilla!, me too!! I gave away my samsung bluray (can't remember the model number) it kept over heating and would cut off halfway during a movie sometimes. Also, the screen output became shaky if I watched netflix too long. My sister has it now with no problems, but I'm guessing she used it less than I did. I just use my PS3 now.

I don't use it for TV watching, because I don't have directTV, but I do use it for most of my movie watching and for playing some games that support it. I'd say 3D gets used about 40% of the time my TV is on. If it's an option, I use it.

This TV is 56.2% larger viewing area. This is 1080P and 120Hz (which is adequate by most standards) and LED. Go ahead and make fun that it is "Westinghouse", but if you look around the Web you will see that this TV has lots of good reviews.

I own a LG LED 3d tv 47in and I use the 3d aspect probably 20% of the time. This will change soon since Netflix is now offering 3d content. I absolutely LOVE my tv. Unlike what one poster previously said (someone with a plasma 3d) the clarity in 3d is outstanding. I have a passive (which I prefer, no headaches + cheap glasses = win!). I also have a ps3 so I can play 3d games with my daughter and watch 3d movies. I LOVE 3d movies on my tv and I especially love DreamWorks movies since they seem to do a better job with 3d than anyone else. I love my passive 3d so much so that I probably won't buy another tv unless it has this feature.

That's your opinion (I really don't want to start an argument - no good with confrontation). There was also others who claim to like the 3d option. I love my 3d tv, and yeah I am kind of childish. My daughter and I have a blast with it. Also, if you're playing games and drinking with your buddies its pretty awesome. I personally would not recommend an active 3d, but maybe look at a passive 3d in the future (maybe...). I'm sure you would prefer this over the thick glasses of the active.

I just read Green Eggs and Ham with my daughter last night... I'm kinda feeling like Sam-I-Am... try it, come on, you'll like it!

Yes, but I know this ONLY because I went to Amazon looking for 3d blu rays with no clear title search. The possibilities are endless. I'm a girl so I see myself in 3d all the time, don't really need to buy the movies :p

My mom loves her big LG passive 3D. It came with like 12 pairs of glasses and every time a new 'kids 3D movie' comes out we all go down to her house and watch it together and have a movie night. The kids look forward to it. I think in the next week or two we are going to go watch 'Wreck it Ralph'. So in my opinion, the 3D is for special occasions, not daily use, and like I said, she loves it.

Here's a comparison with the US 40" version. Specs should really be similar.

http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/UN40EH6030FXZA?

http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/UN40EH6030FXZA-specs


Native Resolution 1,920 x 1,080
Resolution 1080p
Dynamic Contrast Ratio 5,000,000:1
Clear Motion Rate 240

As for the Clear Motion Rate of 240, beware that is a clever marketing term and not specifically the refresh rate.

Clear Motion Rate of 240
Experience sharp picture quality, even when you are watching fast-moving images like sports or action movies. Clear Motion Rate was developed to accurately measure how well a LCD or LED TV can depict fast-moving images. Previously, motion-clarity was calculated by the frame refresh rate alone. But CMR offers a more complete measure by calculating 3 factors: frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology. A CMR of 240 - 480 takes motion-clarity to the next level. LED TVs with this CMR can display action-packed movement with even sharper detail and deeper levels of contrast while eliminating image distortion.

??? standard HDTV's are 1080p, this is 1080p. To be 'twice the resolution' it'd basically have to be a 4K tv, which it isn't, because no one makes them.



Wrong - standard HD is 720p, full HD is 1080p.

I'v got the non 3d 40" of this TV, I think... Works fine for me.

Just be aware that WIFI isn't built in, you need a Samsung USB dongle to access the internet wirelessly. However, there are other dongles with the same chipset that work for much less, I think mine is Rosewill. Samsung standardized the wifi dongle to make it easier on customer service across their wifi enabled devices.

I believe the non-Samsung WIFI dongle (ie: cheaper) is the "Rosewill RNX-N1 dongle."

Info here:

It seems to be out of production so may need to hunt some. Looks like it's $21+. Also, I think it is this SPECIFIC dongle that works, not all Rosewill. See the link for more info/headaches.

I use my 3D at least about 3 times a week. If makes up about 30 percent of my tv/gaming viewing. I can't get enough of it and I hope y doesn't fade away. The only 3D channel in have is ESPN 3D but I have a lot of 3D movies. I have people over about once or twice a month for watch parties. The glasses i have are passive, so I do sometimes forget they are there. I can't personally speak on Samsung glasses/active 3D

If you're looking for a more budget friendly gaming option, the ASUS VG248QE is honestly a way better choice (assuming you don't mind the size drop of a 24" monitor compared to using a 32" TV :P).

144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and the colors look great (albeit they did take me a bit to get them calibrated and looking proper, the only downside I've found with the monitor.) I'm running it on a GTX 460 without any problems, so your 550 Ti should do just about the same considering the 550 Ti and the 460's run right next to eachother performance wise.

Hey all. Was just chatting with a co-worker and learned something new about 3D TVs that I didn't know.

He said that 3DTVs have a better and brighter picture when compared to their non 3D counterparts. Because of this, they're considered well suited to brighter rooms and rooms with glare.

To quote a TV review site: “If you want the best quality TV on the market, it will be a 3DTV–whether you want the 3D or not. Think of it as a feature you can use when you want to.”

Is there any way to confirm whether or not this TV is VESA compatible? I think the Samsung Brazil site says no, but the manual and some other sites say yes.

There appears to be a VESA-ish screw hole in the one input panel picture, but without a view of the back of the thing, I'm hesitant to assume.

I've been looking for a smaller 1080p TV for my bedroom, but if I can't put it on the articulating wall-mount I already have up, I'll have to keep looking.

Just went to take a look at the TV. It has 4 screw holes for VESA mounting. We didn't measure but I'd guess the 400x400 mount. They were pretty far apart.

OK ThunderThighs, I can agree and disagree with you on this. I agree that the 3D TV's could potentially have a better picture in 2D, than the 2D models- but my explanation is a little more simplistic for the reasoning. 3D TV's is usually an option reserved for the high-end models. So if you compare this 3D TV to a cheaper 32" Samsung with less features it will/may appear better. If you compared this TV to another 2D samsung 32" with all the same features (240hz...), it should be indistinguishable.

Remember that when these TV's aren't sitting side by side you lose your frame of reference. So cheaper TV's will still look awesome to most people when there isn't a high-end one right next to it to compare it to.

FWIW, I have 4 SAMSUNG LCD TVs. I also have a large Toshiba and had a Sony I returned to Costco because it sucked big time. I prefer the SAMSUNG to all others I have owned or tried to own (Sony above). I have confidently recommended SAMSUNG to friends and relatives and got good feedback from those who got them. I went SAMSUNG based on the recommendations of Costco staff with whom I had become friendly over the years. Both had bought SAMSUNGs based on returns they were seeing for other brands, etc. They were right IMO :-)
