Summary: 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.
Excerpt: It’s fair to say that Samsung has led the way for the latest generation of TVs. Smart, slim and sexy have been the three crucial characteristics for making the company’s sets stand out from the crowd.
Pros: Envy-enducing good looks, feature-packed Smart Hub, smooth motion, detailed pictures, subtle way with colours, decent sound for a flatscreen
Excerpt: Between the two of us, we've fallen a little bit in love with Samsung’s D6530. Maybe it’s the way it doesn’t try too hard to look gorgeous, or the seductive silkiness of its blacks. Whatever the reason for its magnetic allure, we just want to sit and stare at it all day.
Excerpt: 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. It sells for a mere £1,100 (or less) yet delivers a top notch Freeview HD picture, is 3D ready (obviously), can record onto an external USB hard drive, has integrated wi-fi and offers access to the brand’s rapidly evolving Smart Hub apps and IPTV portal.
Summary: The Samsung UE40D6530 offers a heady mix of superbly stylish design, great Internet features, stunning 2D pictures and above-average 3D performance. You'll struggle to find a better mid-range LED TV.
Pros: Good value for money, Great Internet features, Bright 3D images, Very impressive 2D picture quality, Beautiful design
Cons: Still some slight ghosting visible on 3D images
Excerpt: The Samsung UE40D6530 is a high-performance 3D LED TV with a come-hither price tag. It may be positioned beneath the brand's top of the line Series 7 and 8 models, but it's clearly a step-up screen for budget-watchers who want a designer telly with smart TV capability.
