Samsung UN40ES6500 Review

 

Samsung UNES6500 series information: The review below is based on our time spent with the 46-inch UN46ES6500 TV. However, the observations made also apply to the six other models in this series. Samsung says that sets offer identical features (save...

Attractive design ; Bright picture with solid color and black-level performance ; Built-in Wi-Fi with tons of Internet apps ; Above-average sound quality

Mediocre blacks. Not very bright. Only three HDMI ports

The Samsung UN46ES6500F is a capable 46-inch HDTV that is tastefully designed and offers a nice feature set, including two sets of 3D glasses, lots of interactive apps, and a cloud-based family portal. Its color quality is top notch, but its peak...
