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 UN40JU6500 4K TV Review: Affordable Ultra HD


If you're looking for a bargain Ultra HD set, the Samsung UN40JU6500 is worth considering, and it has a brand name to back it up. However, it doesn't match the picture quality of sets that are of similar size — such as the 43-inch Sony Bravia X83C —...

Competitive price ; Good color accuracy ; 4K picture

Poor off-axis viewing ; Some upscaling glitches

The 40-inch Samsung UN40JU6500 offers a detailed 4K picture for a low price, but don't expect wide viewing angles.

Samsung 40" 4k Smart TV


I would not purchase this TV again based on the horrible refresh rate for the larger resolution that it is mainly advertised for.

Crisp detail for 4k, 2k and 1920x1080 resolutions

30HZ at 4k resolution 30HZ at 2k resolution 60HZ at 1920x1080

Great monitor


People seem to blow the whole 24p thing WAY out of proportion. If you're using this tv as a PC monitor, it's not a big deal at all. In fact, all the actual 4k monitors available that I know of, are only 60hz and do not support 24p playback either. Only...

Rich colors Fairly deep blacks Acceptable amount of motion blur Really good for input lag for a tv (in game mode) Acceptable input lag in PC mode. This TV DOES DO 4:4:4 Chroma at 4k 60hz. You just have to use a GTX 9 series/Titan X graphics card...

No 120hz, so no judderless 24p playback. However, the judder is no worse than on any 600hz plasma or any 60hz tv we all grew up with.

OK monitor, Bad TV


I would not recommend this as a TV for watching movies. Most movies use 24p frame rate. This TV does not display 24p properly. It will stutter very badly.

10 bit 4:4:4 Chroma at 30fps is very nice. Input delay is acceptable. Game mode supports 8bit 60fps with very low input delay.

No 4:4:4 at 60fps. No 24p frame rate.

Good sale & open box price


My previous set was a 25" analog TV (requires converter box), so this was a big step up for me. Now screen info at the bottom isn't cut off! Sharp picture. I haven't used the smart TV or other features yet, but hope to eventually.

Great Picture with Good Smart Functions


The tv delivers very good picture quality and sound. The 40 inch model is great for many applications other than a theater type setup. The Samsung apps always works well, as advertised.
