Calibration report using these settings:
[see post below]

TV software/firmware version tested: T-MST14AKUC-1108.0, BT-S

Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the Samsung UN55H6400 in a dim room via the HDMI input. Your settings may vary depending on source, room conditions, and personal preference. Check out the Picture settings and calibration FAQ for more information.

Calibration notes: Prior to calibration the H6400's Movie mode was nearly perfect. That makes an interesting contrast to the much less accurate Movie mode of the H6350, which I reviewed concurrently.
The reason, I'm guessing, is because CNET purchased the H6350, while our H6400 review sample was supplied by Samsung. That company's Q&A labs, which is in charge of getting reviewers like me samples, likely tweaked the 6400 prior to sending it out. For that reason, I believe my settings for the H6350 should be more accurate with real-world samples than those for the H6400, so I encourage H6400 owners to try the H6350 settings to see if they like them better than the ones below.

Using the H6350's extensive controls I was able to calibrate its grayscale to be even better than before, while of course maintaining my target light output and gamma. The default "0" gamma came closest to my BTU 1886 target, although at the low end it was still a bit dark--the largest error of any measured parameter, and still a mere 1.1 deltaE (I shoot for errors levels less than 3). Color was almost as accurate as the grayscale/gamma in the default Auto color space, to the extent that I didn't even adjust the Custom controls. As usual, Samsung's controls work extremely well for calibrators.

Where is the difference

In reply to: Samsung UN55H6400 picture settings

I set my 65 inch Samsung exactly to your calibrations. I just can`t find in the 2 point and 10 point settings any difference they make no matter how hard I look at the picture. How important are these settings and how do I know the difference?
