Samsung UN46ES6500 Review

 

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.

Samsung UN46ES6500F

 

With the Samsung ES6500F series you get spot-on colors, two sets of 3D glasses, and a nice catalog of web apps, but this slender LED-backlit HDTV doesn?t get very bright or very black.

Very accurate colors. Attractive, slim cabinet. Generous selection of web apps.

Mediocre blacks. Not very bright. Only three HDMI ports.

Conclusion 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...

Samsung UN46ES6500HDTV

 

With the UN46ES6500 (MSRP $1,729), Samsung is clearly making a statement in terms of design. Its all-black finish and attractive base will immediately garner attention. If TVs were based solely on how they look, this would be a clear recommendation....

Sleek design ; Very good picture quality ; Strong Smart TV platform with a good app selection

The internet browser is nothing special

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.

Samsung UN46ES6500F 46-Inch 3D LED HDTV

 

The easy-to-use Samsung UN46ES6500 offers an excellent selection of streaming content for a reasonable price, but we found the TV's image quality disappointing.

Great streaming services and built-in browser ; Good 2D-to-3D conversion ; Works with a USB keyboard and mouse ; Designed for easy port access ; Easy-to-use menus and in-set features

Unexceptional image quality ; Trouble with some fast-moving images

The UN46ES6500’s 120Hz, edge-lit LED display received mostly good (but not great) scores in subjective lab tests for brightness, contrast, color, and detail. As one of the five judges in these tests, I noted the set's occasional softness, its loss of...

Samsung UN46ES6500F

 

The Samsung UN46ES6500F is a smart-looking 46-inch HDTV with 3D capabilities, loads of interactive web services, and built-in Wi-Fi. It delivers very accurate colors and a crisp, clean HD picture, but the LED backlit panel could be brighter. You won't...
