Summary: Though its picture doesn't overcome the typical disadvantages of edge-lit LED LCDs, the excellent feature set and minimalist style of the Samsung UNC6500 series exhibit plenty of appeal.
Pros: Slightly darker black levels than some edge-lit LED-based LCDs; mostly accurate color with linear grayscale in bright areas; handles 1080p/24 content well enough; numerous picture controls and tweaks; superb streaming and widget content via well-integrated Apps platform; sleek styling with inch-deep panel; energy efficient.
Cons: Relatively expensive; lighter black levels than most local dimming LED-based LCDs; subpar uniformity and off-angle viewing; inaccurate primary color of red; black areas tinged bluer; stand styling not for everyone.
Excerpt: With this being the second LED TV I have tested from Samsung, nothing much has changed with regards to pros and cons of thin panel LED technology. The picture quality and colors are second to none and the 1.1inch overall thickness is nothing less than astonishing.
Conclusion: Samsung has long been one of the most respected TV manufacturers on the market but over the past 12 months, finding a good sub-$3000 LCD or LED HDTV has become increasingly difficult. We’re not sure whether a movement away from the 52” panels of yesteryear towards similarly priced yet lower performing 55” products has anything to do with it but there is a trend here.
