I have been looking for a 40 or 43 Samsung HDTV to use as my monitor. Costco seems to have the best price.

40" MU6290 4k - $300
https://www.costco.com/Samsung-40...81127.html

43" MU6290 4k - $350
https://www.costco.com/Samsung-43...81145.html

If you havent already used the Costco $25 off $250 online coupon, go to
https://customerservice.costco.com/
Then click live chat and ask for your one time use online only coupon. Hopefully the coupon will still be available tomorrow

The difference between the 6290 and the 6300 is that the 6300 has a smart remote and Bluetooth for headset connectivity. The 6290 also has a 200mm mount vs 400mm on the 6300.

I ended up with the 43" after looking at them in store.

The 43" is an IPS panel type. If you're using it as a PC monitor that is a good thing because it has better viewing angles than other panel types (which becomes more of an issue in the corners when sitting very close to it), it's also especially good for things like photography where color accuracy is important.

Cool. So the 40" is not IPS?

Good deal for a better than average budget 4k TV. I did this earlier today and it worked perfectly. It is important to note however that this TV does not include Bluetooth.

Is the 6290 the exact same as the 6300?

The 6300 has bluetooth and a special remote. Also, the mount holes are in a difference position for some reason.

There is this LG 43" for $280 at best buy
I chose the more expensive samsung, because I saw a digital trends Youtube review of the slightly higher model UJ6300, and the reviewer was pretty meh about it. That same reviewer did a review on the Samsung and sounded excited

Samsung (6300 / 6290?) http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/mu6300

TCL (S405) http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/...-2017-s405

Both are close in ratings, and both have good/better individual aspects then the other . Either one is a good choice depending on your usage.

I am a fan of Roku too , but it was not much of a factor for myself having multiple Roku boxes already. Roku is an added plus imo .


Ive already picked up the 43" TCL from Taget the other day (pre-turkey day) for $241+tax (deal+5% red card) , still unopened ; to use a pc monitor and at that price its hard to beat . But Ive also been looking into the Samsung 43" 6300 ($400/$350) but the extra cost was not worth it ; but maybe with the 40" 6290 deal I'll have a second look (just incase) .

It is not. Only the 43 is IPS and I believe that's only confirmed with the MU6300

Got 2 of these with coupons for Christmas presents. Our bedroom TVs will be nicer than our living room TV now.
