  • The Samsung UNF6400 offers attractive styling and a full complement of features for the price but is outstripped by rivals for performance.

  • Rating Unavailable

    It is a slight step up from the F6300 series below it. The two series are pretty much the same except for 2 major additions in the features department. First there is local dimming, that helps to create a better contrast ratio, and second is the inclusion of active 3D. Those are two big upgrades for such a small step up. This TV is aimed at those looking for a value model that offers a little more than just a nice picture. The difference between this one and the F6800 is the "window" design and the 240Hz refresh rate.


  • At around $280 on Amazon, the Sceptre X325BV-FHD LCD HDTV is exceptional value for money, delivering a full HD experience to your home. It is cheap, it has good connectivity, great image quality and best of all, at this size, it will fit in any home easily. If you were looking for a new HDTV and do not wish to spend a small fortune on one, then the Sceptre X325BV-FHD 32-Inch 60Hz 1080p LCD HDTV should be just the right acquisition for you.


  • The Samsung UNES6500 is a well-featured midrange television with good color but otherwise ho-hum picture quality and value.


  • At $1599 the UN55ES6500 is a very good value with all of the above mentioned features and picture quality attributes. It's pretty loaded for this price. Some of the only features that it does not have such as Smart Interaction are not really worth it. The picture is also not as standout as the top tier models, but is still very good. Competition is from the LG 55LM6700 and the Sony KDL-55HX750 and an assortment of plasma TVs.


  • The Samsung UN46ES6500 (MSRP $1,729) is loaded with great features like Smart TV functionality, 3D, and media sharing via USB, just to name a few. Samsung deserves credit for not only implementing these features, but doing them very well.

    The picture quality was excellent on this TV. Blacks were very dark and whites were modestly bright. The 46ES6500 had a great contrast ratio of 2658:1 and the screen had consistent black and white levels. Colors were not the best we've ever seen, but were still pretty good and hold up well compared to similar TVs.


  • At $999 you may be hard pressed to find a better TV in the market in the 40" size. Not many top tier manufacturers are making the smaller sizes these day with their best models anyway. So even at 40" the UN46ES6580 is a good deal considering picture, features, and the Skype camera and 4 pairs of 3D glasses. Competition is from the LG 42LM6200.


  • The Samsung ES6580 is good TV, but most of its best features are the ones you'll find on almost all of Samsung's 2012 line-up. The robust Smart Platform, immersive 3D, and slick design/interface aside, it's proven to be a slightly modified version of the ES6500 series, packed up pretty with a pouty little webcam.

    The differences between the two are quite simple. Where the ES6500 is the better television in color integrity, the ES6580 is brighter, which gives it a stronger contrast ratio.
