- 55-inch LCD TV with edge LED lighting
- Full HD native resolution
- Active 3D playback (two pairs of glasses included)
Attractive in an unusual way, the Samsung UE55H6400
is a 55-inch LCD TV with edge LED lighting. It’s reasonably thin, with a slim black bezel surrounded by slightly odd see-through trim, and sits on a silver cross-type stand. It can also be wall-mounted.
Samsung’s non-Tizen Smart TV platform provides a rich range of content options, though the rubbish presets are a let-down, meaning you have to put some time into getting the picture right. Once you’ve had a fiddle, you’ll be pleased to see punchy colours and deep black levels that humble more expensive TVs. However, you do lose out on some shadow detail. The UE55H6400 supports 3D playback, coming with two free pairs of glasses, and is responsive enough to be used as a gaming screen.
Unfortunately, the speakers aren’t the best we’ve come across. A rich, dynamic film soundtrack finds bass muffled, the mid-range can be over-loaded, and trebles and voices sound distorted and harsh when you increase volume levels. Voices tend to get lost in the mix, too.Price:
