Samsung UE43KU6500


I have some pretty recent TV's & I was sceptical that the picture could get any better but it definitely is better, much better web browsing & app speed compared to a slightly older Samsung model.

Love the memory of previous channels. The picture in picture is handy. Love the Football enhancement as it can be used on dark parts in films as well as sport.

The curved screen does nothing to improve the picture quality over a flat screen TV,in fact it reflected light from unwanted sources. You could not plug a Memory Stick into the USB port unless it was attached to a lead as the back of the TV is in the way.
