Samsung UN40D6500 Review

After enjoying success with its D8000 and D7000 televisions, Samsung’s latest offering is the new D6500, also available as the white D6510.  It’s a more affordable 3D TV with Edge LED backlighting, and has most of the same features as its big brothers, including the Smart TV interface giving access to online content including social networks, app downloads, videos and general surfing.  It also has some advanced technology that should allow it to produce an exceptionally good picture.


Great picture in 2D and 3D

Accurate colour reproduction (average deltaE: 2.3) and high contrast (ratio: 2630:1)

Powerful Motion Plus 200 filter

Low energy consumption: 75 W

Good media player with support for lots of video formats



Glossy screen picks up reflections

Viewing angles too narrow

Crosstalk leads to viewers seeing double in 3D

Clouding on our test unit

Resolution halved in 3D: 1920 x 540 pixels



The D6500 has a good picture in 2D.  In 3D, though, the resolution is halved to 1920 x 540 pixels and the crosstalk is a little too noticeable.  It’s still a decent choice for anybody who wants a slim TV for a reasonable price.
