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.
Create images with greater clarity
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.
Colors are very accurate
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.
Very good picture quality, Strong Smart TV platform with a good app selection
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.
Attractive design, Bright picture with solid color and black-level performance
The Samsung ES6500 is not quite the slam-dunk of value we were hoping it might be, but it stands up very well against the similarly-sized and like-priced competition. The ES6500's most attractive attribute when turned off is its stunning good looks. With a thin profile, tiny bezel, Plexiglass border and matt-finished screen, this series from Samsung is about as beautiful as a TV gets at this price.
Struggle, Pain, and Joy
The fact that I can't adjust certain "features", combined with the level of screwing around it requires to make the picture look good makes me lower that. Seriously Samsung... why can't there be a default mode in here that has professionally calibrated settings? You must know that the reds are way too saturated, right? You can still set it to "Standard Mode" by default to create eye-popping pictures that make people buy the TV.
Sharp, Clear and Bright!
We have a 44" Samsung in our 5th wheel camper and really enjoyed the picture clarity, so that's what influenced our decision on this Samsung. From the moment I turned it on, I could not believe the picture. This TV has it all. Plus the 3D is fa-nominal. If you order from Amazon, they ship it free, no sales tax and the shipping company un-crates it and sets it up for you at no charge. Of course I gave the guys a $20. as a tip though. All in all, so far we're very pleased with our decision.
The picture is also not as standout as the top tier models, but is still very good.
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.
Fairly expensive for a 46-inch TV and color accuracy would've been better.
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.
Cheap and cheerful, Full HD display
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.
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.
Amazing TV for the price!
Being that this is my first HDTV, I can't really compare it to another specific one, but from what I have, it's just been amazing. The quality of the picture on the screen is crisp and bright, the volume adjusts very well, they even have a setting where it dims if you have the tv on at night in the dark (I sometimes fall asleep with the TV on so that helps). For the price it's a great bargain, I was in WalMart the other day and they had another 32 in. for the same price but a no name brand.
The viewing angle is wide for an LCD TV
There's not much to dislike about the LG 42LS3400 (MSRP $719). It doesn't have many ports and the audio is average, but it makes up for these shortcomings with its great color accuracy, wide viewing angle, and bright white levels. This TV even did well with motion performance and it doesn't have any fancy enhancement features like "TruMotion" or "CineMotion."
The MSRP may say $719, but you can easily find this LED for under $500 online.
Awesome TV, great quality and easy setup
As the reviewer before me said, this set has the best picture quality! I made the bad mistake of connecting coax initially but the images were not too sharp so I thought I'd give HDMI a try.. eureka! It auto-detected and even auto-sized the screen so I'm using wide-screen format which takes up the entire screen (no black bars on the top or bottom).
The BX series does not feature internet connectivity.
The 32" KDL32BX330 replaces the KDL32BX320 from last year, it is a fluorescent back lit, 720p, 60Hz LCD panel.
Rather than light the LCD panel with LED back lighting or edge lighting the BX series uses CCFL fluorescent back lighting. CCFL doesn't produce the same bright whites as LED lighting but the panel lighting can end up being more uniform than a thinner, more expensive LED edge lit television.
The viewing angle is good for an LCD TV
For an inexpensive 32-inch LCD television, the Sony Bravia KDL-32BX330 (MSRP $329) delivers. The motion performance is good, navigating the menus is simple, and the viewing angle is wide - for an LCD, that is. Not only is this TV budget-conscious, but so is its power consumption.
Not every feature can be a knockout on a TV this cheap, though. We weren't particularly impressed by the range of colors that the BX330 can produce, which does not measure up nicely with the industry standard.
Overly bright whites obscure detail and poor sound.
While the 32BX330 won't be wowing any videophiles, it is a solid performer with Sony's signature picture quality. This TV stands shoulder to shoulder with competing sets from Toshiba, LG, Samsung and Vizio and well above sets from the likes of Sceptre, Proscan, RCA and Element.
The only trouble is that along with the Sony name comes the Sony price, which averages about $50 more than other big name brands and sometimes as much as $120 more than smaller name brands like Sceptre and Element.
Excellent High Value LG Smart HDTV!!
This LG looks, sounds and works the way you WANT it to!
At the current price, the LG 47LM6200 represents one of the very top values in HDTV today. Read my caveats at the very end of this review, but otherwise you just can't beat this TV for the price. IT currently resides in the master bedroom , connected to a Fios HD DVR and Oppo Blu Ray player but could easily be the center of ANY living room entertainment center or home theater set-up.
The best 3D experience in the business
With so many features done well on this TV, it is hard to not recommend the 32LM6200 (MSRP $650). There is a robust Smart TV platform, industry-leading 3D, and yes, a good quality picture. LG has done a fantastic job at creating a mid-range TV that is feature-heavy and a solid performer.
The design of this TV will catch the eye of many consumers: it is bold and futuristic, and those adjectives apply to the motion controlled remote, too.
I've used this product for a full day and I am blow away from what it delivers. I bought this TV for heavy gaming (PS3 & PC), watching Dish Network Satellite channels, and Blu-ray movies. I've tested each of these criteria on the Sony KDL40BX450 and have seen amazing clarity. There are also lots of features that it has which add to your personal viewing experience (i.e. different aspect ratios, scene selects, equalizer, etc.).
The motion performance is lackluster
While the Sony Bravia KDL-46BX450 (MSRP $699) is not the worst TV we have ever seen, it did not manage to impress us at all. This TV's performance results were below average in many categories: color consistency, motion, and viewing angle. To add insult to injury, accessing USB media files did not work properly on this Sony.
Some of the highlights of this TV include its simple menu interface, its stellar user manual, and the decent audio.
