Samsung UN55HU6830FXZA 4K Ultra HD 55-inch TV review missing

If you are looking to splash out during the busy sales and don’t mind paying for the quality, one model that you may be interested in taking a look at is the Samsung UN55HU6830FXZA 4K Ultra HD 55-inch LED TV.

This is a premium TV that is most likely going to be a significant upgrade to whatever TV set you are currently using in the living room.

That’s due to the fact that the Samsung UN55HU6830FXZA 4K specs are very desirable, as it includes features such as a 3840 x 2160 resolution, a vertical resolution of 2160p 4K, Clear Motion Rate 240 and access to Samsung’s Smart Hub.

The one downside that we can see however is that this TV from Samsung apparently only contains a 60Hz refresh rate, which is very low by Samsung’s standards. Also given the fact that this is a Ultra HD 4K TV, we should really be seeing a 240Hz refresh rate for this model.

With that aside though, it is still going to be an amazing TV for average consumers looking for a large screen TV. This model is going to be pre-installed with all of your favorite smart apps on the go, this includes Netflix, YouTube, Skype, Hulu Plus and even Facebook.

We usually offer alternative opinions on our TV reports, but unfortunately there is no Black Samsung 55″ Class LED 2160p Smart 4K Ultra HD TV review for this particular model.

This is because it is a brand new model, exclusive to Best Buy which is only going to start selling this month. We’ll leave it to you to decide whether this is a good or bad factor though.

Give us your thoughts on this massive 55-inch behemoth. Are you interested, or is a 60Hz refresh rate a key factor which would make you look elsewhere?

Guys….60 Hz is all you need unless you’re playing PC games on a super powerful rig. Literally nothing but that is in anything higher than 60 Hz. It’s crazy how many people don’t know this.

I bought it at bb in overland park ks on Thanksgiving night . Got there at abt 9p. They had plenty still in stock. I set it up the next day with my att uverse and HDMI connection. Watched several football and basketball games over the next couple days. I will return it soon as we are VERY DISAPPOINTED with the crispness and clarity. We didnt find it to be any better than a 1080 set, so why pay for 4K??

I don’t understand. You all say that it’s not 240 Hz but on the official Samsung Website and Best Buy it says that it is.

i have seen 1st hand that when a samsung TV states Clear Motion 240 it always refers to 120hz check all the TVs on Samsungs website and see for yourself. this is actually going to be a 120hz TV the lower cost is going to be saved with cheaper materials an ordinary stand which is fine cause most people wall mount these and probably the lack of HDMI 2.0.

if you are pulling these specs from the best buy website than this review is most likely inaccurate because i can assure you that best buy constantly messes up the spec sheet online.

I want this as a PC monitor.Literally no usage for TV what so ever. Just not sure about the refresh rate. Does it run at 60HZ at 4K or only 30? I prefer large screens + high res makes them perfect and practical to use as pc monitor.

120+Hz is a total gimmick. It has no value to anyone minus high-end PC gamers (and in this case, the TV needs to be able to *accept* a 120Hz signal, which only HDMI 2.0 sets can do, to my knowledge). For all but gaming, it makes everything look “fake” (even though it’s actually closer to reality). The best thing to do with “fake” (simulated) signals higher than 60 Hz is disable it. To reiterate, unless you’ve witnessed a television with HDMI 2.0 (not likely), you have never seen a “real” signal higher than 60Hz. It’s always been simulated, and it’s… Read more »

The proper viewing distance of a 55″ 4K television is less than three feet. It would offer exactly no benefits over a 1080p set in a living room. No one needs this except someone who wants an absolutely enormous PC monitor (yes, please). Of course, the set likely lacks HDMI 2.0, which you (and your GPUs) require if you desire more than 30 Hz (so, in reality, this is really a 30 Hz television, for all intents and purposes). Takeaways: a 55″ 4K is way to small to offer anything over a 55″ 1080P set in a living room (unless… Read more »

As a general rule, if what you’re watching involves seeing real peoples’ faces as they talk, disable the higher refresh rate so they don’t look like creepy dolls (also known as the “soap opera effect”). If what you’re watching involves seeing real people run into each other (sports), or fake people attacking each other in an artificial environment (video games), keep the higher refresh rate mode turned on (though set to “low” or “medium” if given the option, because the most zealous motion modes can still make the picture look unreal). Remember these modes don’t add any actual detail to… Read more »

It is a 60hz refresh rate, says so in the specs, but Samsung’s “Clear Motion 240” is supposed to simulate 240hz. I would not buy it.
