The 6300 remote has voice input. Other than that 6290 and 6300 remotes are similar in design and other buttons

I don't think my UN55KU6290FXZC has voice on the remote. (Version No: BJ04, MFD: November 2016).

6300 DOES NOT have voice input. I bought that tv on black friday and it does not have it.

but BT is worth the extra money for sure, I got a soundbar and it connected automatically. I also connect my headphones so I dont wake the fiancee up with my video games.

ah yea... sorry. you're right. i swear i saw the microphone symbol on that button.. must have gotten confused with the remote from the ks9000.

just how useful is that button anyway, i haven't tried it yet. Is it just a gizmo, or it actually does stuff.

That's excellent. Should jump on it if the price is al 1099$. Just so you know. I got mine back ordered and it's telling me it will be shipped Jan 13th. You might get it around that time

Did any of you buy a tv from walmart during the boxing day sale? i actually ordered mine a few minutes before they said the sale would start (the prices went on sale a few minutes beforehand). Anyways, now i'm waiting for the tv, but when I check the tracking it hasn't moved since Dec. 28th. 'Arrived in terminal' in Toronto was the last update. I know we had new years day and stuff on the 1st, but I was hoping it would have moved a little bit by now (it's heading to BC). I'm sure they must have a big backlog of stuff, but i'm just curious if anyone has received stuff from walmart from the boxing day sale.

edit: received it. :D

I received the samsung ku6290 2 days ago. I'm really happy with it. I've previously had my chromecast hooked up to our other tv, but what i really like about this smart tv is that I can continue to cast stuff straight from my phone/computer just like with the chromecast. The tv shows up as a place to send the cast too. I like this because it's like having a remote for youtube/netflix and it's obviously a lot faster to type on the phone than use the samsung remote to type. A small feature, but it makes it a very smooth experience. so happy with this deal. :D Even better because I don't like to overly use remotes that come with a tv, especially since this one is a lot different than most remotes.

Loomis also delivered on time and right to my door. Awesome service although they didn't update the tracking so from dec 28th so i thought it might have still been in toronto.

Question: Are there any compatible universal remotes for this tv that i can buy? I have a universal satellite tv remote, but it only seems ok with changing volume/power of the tv.

Likewise happy with my KU6290 and a bit more so after seeing this sticker on a Samsung at a dealer other than Costco a few days ago. I had no idea about this 3-month offer, just knew about the 1-month offer that anyone can get. (Guess I should read Red Flag Deals more thoroughly.) Got it up and running, and making use of it.

Apologies for off-topic and to those that already know, (there are RFD threads about it), but here is the info for anyone else not aware:
