Serving the entry-level segment of 4K TVs, Samsung MU6100 provides an average design quality.
While it only provides picture quality that’s within its price range, MU6100 does come with a very low input lag, increasing responsiveness in gaming applications.
Motion performance is sub-par and image quality gets worse at an angle; however, the panel compensates by a really good contrast ratio (4818:1).
Being an entry-level product, local dimming and 3D functions are not available with this TV.
Optimal calibration settings for the Samsung MU6100 TV
First, turn off Eco Solution so backlighting won’t change while calibration is done. Select Movie from the “Picture Mode” menu.
Set “Picture Size Settings” to “16:9 Standard” to keep the original screen format of the MU6100. Make sure the “Fit to Screen” option is also on.
Backlight setting was set to 5, Brightness was set at 0 and Contrast to 95. You may change the backlight setting to fit the lightning of your room. This won’t compromise color quality.
Leave Sharpness at 0 and set Color to 50 and “Tint (G/R)” to G50 and R50, respectively.
Digital Clean View is helpful for lower resolution videos. However, it’s best to turn it off for high-resolution content to remove artifacts. Turn off both “Auto Motion Plus” and “Contrast Enhancer”, then un-tick “HDR+ Mode”
Set “Color tone” to Warm 2. Set “Gamma BT.1866” to 1. Color Space Settings should be set to Auto unless you plan on calibrating the TV.
For HDR content streamed via HDMI, you need to set each HDMI input by turning on the HDMI UHD Color function.
Also, HDR content benefits from maximum “Backlight” and “Auto” Color Space Settings.
For HDR gaming, just turn on “Game Mode” and keep the above settings.
This is pretty much it. The settings described should provide the peak image quality that the MU6100 TV is able to provide.
