Delivers high-end picture quality
Within the TV industry, reviewers and hobbyists alike agree on one thing: Plasma TVs produce a better picture than LCDs. And, hand over heart, it's true. However, LCDs like the Samsung F6300 redeem the fickle technology's mass popularity: This TV's picture looks very good, hands down, and its software works with fluid precision.
Quite Stunning Video and Audio
The technical specs and capabilities are well described on the product page, so I won't repeat them here. I want to give you an idea of my experience with the set, the things I was surprised by, and what you may not otherwise find out.
The set-up was the easiest experience I've had so far with the TV guiding me through the process before I even had to find the Menu or Guide buttons on the remote. The ports are plenty and well marked leaving a minimal wire profile and a clean look.
Bright LED edge lights create a very engaging picture when viewing from front and center
The Samsung UN50F5500 has a lot to offer even though much has been done away with to get the price down. For the price, the picture quality is strong and the Smart Hub adds more than enough functionality to make this a great choice. Competing models include the 50LN5700 from LG, The Panasonic TC-L50E60, and the Toshiba 50L4300U. The F5500 wins out on price against all three.
Great 3D TV
Just picked this up a few days ago. Since this is a new 2013 model, there is conflicting information on websites as to whether this tv supports 3D or not. It does. Visit Samsung's website for full details. This FH6030 is pretty much the same as last years EH6030, but does not have the 3D glasses included and is at a lower retail price.
Wanted a 3D TV but had no use for Smart features (streaming Netflix, Amazon, etc) as my TV is hooked up to my HTPC.
Picture quality is outstanding, hooking up a laptop (must have HDMI port on laptop as noted) takes 2 seconds. It really isn't needed anyway since the TV is a full browser, online experience. Unless you have content, pictures/video on your laptop, then you can put them on a USB drive and plug that into the TV.
This was our first flat panel, Smart TV, wireless TV, streaming content TV (both over age 50), so we are beginning users.
Blacks look good/saturated from front and center
At $1498 the UN55ES6100 is priced $100 less than the 55ES6500. It has almost the same features except for some specs making it a great value given the picture and robust features and Samsung Smart TV set. Competition is from the LG 55LM6700 and the Sony KDL-55HX640 and Toshiba 55L6200U and an assortment of plasma TVs.
A large contrast ratio solidified by deep blacks and decently bright whites
The Samsung UN40ES6100 is a solid performer, and a decent TV overall. You're paying a few hundred dollars more than you would for a VIZIO or a Dynex TV of the same size, but that's largely due to the fact that Samsung's included wired or wireless internet with this series, giving you access to their Smart Hub and plenty of streaming options for movies, TV, and music.
Great TV after a lot of tweaking
With a lot of tweaking, I got the picture to look beautiful. I will use my Comcast box sparingly, but I might move to FIOS if the support full 1080. Watching movies on my PS3 and playing games on my Xbox stopped me from returning the TV. I will not be surprised if this set gets bad reviews from Comcast users (even though Its not Samsung's fault). I'm a "videophile" and this passed my personal test with vibrant colors.
Pretty good fast action performance
This is not the least expensive 32" LCD TV you will find but it has LED edge backlighting and the CMR 120 for fast action processing and display. It also has much better front appearance than most of the 32" TVs on the market. It's $450 price tag puts it $100 to $125 more than simple 60Hz LCD (CCFL) TVs from Toshiba and Sony.
Great contrast, Accurate colors
A 40-inch Samsung for less than $700 is good deal without knowing much more. Being that we are a business based on writing scientific reviews with testing data, we will give you some actual insight on the performance and usability of this product in our conclusion.
The UN40EH5000 ($679 MSRP) from Samsung is in many ways the perfect television for some consumers.
Great TV for the price!
It arrived in excellent shape and had it installed and up and running in a few minutes. Picture quality is excellent and the built in sound system is very good. Not theater quality but still very clear, lots of audio and nice stereo quality and it's light making it easy to move around for cleaning and so on.
I don't know about it's dependability since it's new but my other Samsung DLP projection TV has been running for seven years so I'd expect this new one would be even better.
Smooth Motion Presentation from the CRM feature
Currently the LN40E550 costs around $549 from authorized Internet dealers. It has a lacking feature set overall and the picture is average too, although it is better than most all the off-brand discount competition due to its CNR technology and a stable picture. In the smaller sizes, it might be a decent second or third room TV, but with solid performance over time. Longevity should also be a strong point. It should last for many years as there are not too many moving parts.
