Samsung UE40D6530


Can Samsung's most affordable 40in 3D LED TV, the 40D6530, deliver the same quality as the brand's more expensive 3D models?

Stunning design ; Frequently spectacular pictures ; Brilliant multimedia features inc built-in wi-fi

Some backlight inconsistencies ; Minor crosstalk during bright scenes ; No 3D glasses included for free

As noted in other reviews of Samsung’s 2011 Smart TVs, by no means all the apps available on the service are useful or even interesting. But then the same is true of the apps for Smartphones, and that hasn’t stopped them becoming a runaway success!

Samsung UE40D6530 review


Struggles a bit with 3D, but has a class-leading selection of apps

Envy-enducing good looks ; feature-packed Smart Hub ; smooth motion, detailed pictures ; subtle way with colours ; decent sound for a flatscreen

3D performance isn’t great

This smart Samsung struggles a touch with 3D content, but everything else is done in fine style

Samsung UE40D6530 review


Samsung's UE40D6530 LED TV may be positioned beneath the brand's top of the line Series 7 and 8 models like the Samsung UE55D8000, but it's an enticing proposition for budget-watchers who want a designer 40in telly with net connected smarts.

Elegant design ; Integrated Wi-Fi ; Noise-free hi-def picture

3D double imaging ; Uneven media streaming ; No 3D glasses supplied

Samsung UE40D6530 review


Samsung's 40UED6530 LED puts forward such a convincing case to be crowned Britain's Best Value 3D LED TV, there really doesn't seem much point considering anything else.

Sharp HD image quality; content-rich Smart Hub portal; integrated wi-fi

No 3D glasses; mild 3D crosstalk; social media is a faff

Samsung Smart TV : Samsung Smart TV UE40D6530WK


A lot of these Smart TV's are too big for the average room but Samsung have a 40inch version. This fits remarkably easily into the space my heavier older 32inch offering took. It has so much more than TV to offer.
