A Review of the Samsung JU6500 48-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (2015 Series) – (UN40JU6500, UN48JU6500, UN50JU6500, UN55JU6500, UN60JU6500, UN65JU650

 

As one of Samsung's more moderately priced 4K TVs the JU6500 offers a bit of a mixed back of features. On the one hand, the TV's specs and characteristics make it one very solid economy-level model among its 4K peers and as such it's a very good...

Excellent TV for its price ; Superb color ; Great contrast ; Bright picture ; Excellent built-in connectivity

Low native refresh rate ; Bad at off-angle display clarity ; Smart TV lacks a few features ; No smart remote ; Display needs manual calibration

Without a doubt, the UN70JU6500 is an excellent 4K TV as an entry level model. Buyers who want to start with 4K without spending too much money are going to get some excellent overall quality with this model. None of its deficiencies are deal breakers.

Samsung UE48JU6500 review

 

The Samsung UE48JU6500 is one of the best-looking sub-£1000 TVs for 2015, with a sleek curved design and a 48-inch UHD screen. Having said that, the curved screen won't be right for everyone, and the TV misses out on 3D. There's a lot to like about...

The UE48JU6500 is in many ways a desirable television. The 48-inch size is now an affordable option for many families, provided you have a big enough space for it. If you want a device that creates an impression and will be a talking point, then the...

Samsung UE48JU6500 review

  (Rating Hidden)

If you want a cinema-like experience in your living room, the big-screen Samsung UE48JU6510 could appeal. This slim, stylish 48-inch TV is almost identical to the JU6510, but lacks Freesat HD. Its sound is fantastic, but does its picture live up to the...

Mounting difficulty

 

The user guide does not explain exactly what size screw is used for wall mounts. Get the M8 coarse thread (1.25). I used 25mm screws because they had to be long enough to reach through the wall mount bracket, even though the manual warns not to use a...

So pleased I bought a 2nd one.

 

While I've seen a few reviews that fault the sound quality of this product that isn't a problem for me since I have mine hooked up to a Bose system.

All the connections options I could ever need ; Easy To Set Up ; Good Remote Control ; Great Picture Quality ; LED-backlit ; Reduced Glare

Beautiful Picture

 

Can't believe a TV can have such a beautiful picture and like the curved screen to give it a panoramic like view. The 48" screen seems like it is a bigger screen.

Bright display ; Built-In Speakers ; Lightweight ; Realistic color ; seems like a much bigger screen
