Summary: First I paid extra for voice control thinking that it would save tedious one letter at a time typing on utube but no such luck; all it does is stupid things like hold the voice button on a second controller and say things like power off instead of just pressing the red power button - a complete waste of time and money.
Summary: A super TV. Picture, perfect and it sounds good to my ears. Delivery was perfect too. Only problem was the 3D glasses were missing. However these were quickly supplied by Samsung. Must say I think 3D is a bit of a disappointment but this is not intended as a reflection on the TV but a criticism of the system. Altogether I'm very happy with all the equipment including all the apps. and net access.
Summary: When I first got the TV I thought it was great. Then I noticed a big problem with juddering. I first noticed it when streaming Netflix on my Xbox One. I first thought the problem lied with my Xbox and after hours of phone calls to Xbox support, Netflix and Virgin Media there were no problems. I have a very fast internet connection and no static in the line. I had it tested. I tried all the troubleshooting tips for both Xbox One and Netflix. The problem was still there.
Pros: Nice 3D. Sharp picture. Nice style.
Cons: Pointless voice control. Judders on streamed films/programmes and even some on TV. Especially on a red background.
Summary: Having researched Samsung TVs and their different versions, we settled for the F6500. However contrary to other reviewers it took us longer than expected to set up the tv. This was because we had to work out which cables to use as we had quite a few boxes to connect which did not have the HDMI connectors. Annoyingly we still cannot get Freeview!
Summary: The smart menu can be a tad slow at times (nothing major, but enough to be annoying if you are a channel / service hopper like me). The picture is decent for SD TV, HD TV, sports channels and it isn't at all bad for movies either. The sound really isn't great.... but I personally don't expect good sound with this type of purchase. The image filter (to make SD look like HD) is good, but very laggy. Again, no worse than the competition...
Summary: Upgraded this Xmas from our 10 year old system. This TV is stunning in comparison, the picture is absolutely incredible. 2D-3D is ok but full 3D as viewed in "The Hobbit" took my breath away. It linked to our NAS perfectly and internet access was also worked perfectly. My criticisms are as follows,. The lack of a universal remote is irritating as the samsung keyboard, tracker pad, TV remote, sky controller, DVD handset and sound bar remote all lack some common feature.
Summary: I'll start by saying I'm a fan of Samsung anyway, but it really is a good tv. The setup was easier than anticipated, though you'll still need to allow an hour or so, to get it up and running (from getting it out of the box, to sitting with your cuppa and watching something)... Picture quality is great and the whole smart tv thing has come on a long way (wifi in a tv offers far more than I'd given it credit for). Have fun!
Summary: The 46 inch 6500 is an awesome TV set. The screen is excellent, with crisp and sharp images. The SmartTV features are versatile and easily accessible. The remote is fun to play with, as it comes with a sort of track pad instead of buttons. There is a spare remote, with a classical arrangement of buttons and features. Connection ports adequate. The only downside so far is that it had issues recognising some MP4 or AVI files.
