Samsung UE40D6530


Can Samsung's most affordable 40in 3D LED TV, the 40D6530, deliver the same quality as the brand's more expensive 3D models?

Stunning design, Frequently spectacular pictures, Brilliant multimedia features inc built-in wi-fi

Some backlight inconsistencies, Minor crosstalk during bright scenes, No 3D glasses included for free

The Samsung U32D6530 ticks all our boxes for a TV in 2011

Excellent Freeview HD tuner ; smooth motion, natural colours, fine attention to detail ; extensive features including 3D…

3D performance is average

Best 32in TV, Awards 2011. A near-faultless marriage of form and function – and it’s a steal at the price

Samsung UE40D6530


Between the two of us, we've fallen a little bit in love with Samsung's D6530. Maybe it's the way it doesn't try too hard to look gorgeous, or the seductive silkiness of its blacks. Whatever the reason for its magnetic allure, we just want to sit and...

Luscious design, silky blacks, generous Smart TV portal, integrated Wi-Fi, motion resolution

Pernickety media streaming compatibility, average sound, some motion artifacts

Overall, the 40D6530 should be considered something of a star performer for the price. Its images are enticing, it looks as pretty as a picture and the feature set hits all the hot buttons. Isn’t love wonderful?

Samsung UE40D6530 review


Samsung brings elegance and 2D excellence to the LED mainstream

Elegant design ; Smart Hub portal ; Excellent 2D HD pictures

3D crosstalk ; Requires careful setup ; Patchy media streaming ; Ordinary sound quality

The Samsung UE40D6530 is a high-performance 3D LED TV with a come-hither price tag. It may be positioned beneath the brand's top of the line Series 7 and 8 models, but it's clearly a step-up screen for budget-watchers who want a designer telly with...

Samsung D6530 review


For this review we tested the 40in model in the 6 Series D6530 range, but it's also available in 32in (UE32D6530), 37in (UE37D6530), 46in (UE46D6530) and 55in (UE55D6530) screen sizes. All models have identical specifications except for their...

Samsung UE32D6530


This is a great TV, slim compact and all the plug in points on the back sensibly laid out to avoid "tangled Cable" syndrome (!). Picture quality is outstanding. The sound can be a little tinny, but thats always the case with on screen speakers, dont...

Frankly cant think of any - honestly. The sound can be a *little* tinny, but thats no different to any on screen LCD TV, the sound quality is fine in the real world, ad aftera couple of hours use it not an issue. Frankly its hard to find any real world...

Samsung UE40D6530


The image quality from this mid range TV is excellent and far better than my three year old LCD, sound not great but not the worsed i've heard from a flat screen, I connected mine to a cinema sound sound which made for a great experience, a must really...

If your buying for the Internet then it's a bit slow, messy and not easy to use, wasn't really impressed with the 2D-3D transfer but not really tried full 3D as didn't really buy from this function as wearing the glass are a pain.

Samsung UE40D6530


The picture quality is awesome in 2d and very good 3d (when you get the settings right)

A lot of trial and error needed to get the best picture .. Such as motion plus ... White balance ... 3d tweaking ... The factory presets are poor.
