21 May 2014
Excerpt: If you want a feature-heavy yet budget-friendly Smart TV for a small or medium room, you must give the first priority to the 40-inch UN40F6400AF. You will get nearly everything on this Smart TV panel. First, the picture quality is truly top-notch. The Full HD 1080p screen resolution creates maximum number of pixel points on the screen by means of which all on-screen pictures look exceptionally high-standard.
Conclusion: The Samsung F6400 series of edge-lit HDTVs deliver a sharp picture with dark blacks and vibrant colors. Features are abundant, but the screen doesn't get very bright and the Smart Touch remote can be tricky to master.

We certainly hope the Korean manufacturer will be able to issue a firmware update (as they do occasionally) to fix this – we think the very mild judder present on the UE46F7000 for 3D 24p playback is...
