    A knowledgeable Best Buy rep told me yesterday that the KU6300 series sets do not really offer HDR display. I.e. they can broadcast HDR material but don't actually show it with the added aspects/benefits that HDR provides. True or not?   (4 Answers)

      Answer

      It's true. The KU series TVs do not meet the new Ultra HD Premium standards agreed upon by television manufacturers (notice they just say "HDR Premium"). The new standard sets must have a wide color gamut and peak brightness over 1000 nits, among other things. None of the cheaper models of any manufacturer meet this standard. Like Samsung's budget 4k TVs, they just map the HDR signal to match the lower capabilities of these televisions. Usually that means the TV will max out it's setting for the brightest, colorful picture it's capable of. The good news is that these new lower cost sets are brighter, clearer, and have better color accuracy than the cheap sets from a year or so ago. The new Ultra HD Premium TVs need actual HDR content to really shine anyway, just like 4k TVs need actual 4k to look better than 1080p.

          Answer

          From a chat via Samsung's website with a Samsung rep the differences between the ku6300 and the ku6290 are as follows. The ku6300 has Bluetooth whereas the ku6290 does not. Also, even though the remotes for both sets look the same, they are different. The ku6300 series remote has a few features like voice recognition that the ku6290 does not. With regards to picture quality, refresh rate, frame, stand and #of connections they are the same TV.
