Samsung UE40D6530 review


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...

Luscious design, silky blacks, generous Smart TV portal, integrated Wi-Fi, motion resolution

Pernickety media streaming compatibility, average sound, some motion artifacts

An unfeasibly good 2D Full HD screen with lashings of useful features, including a superior Smart TV portal. 3D suffers from crosstalk but it’s brighter than some rivals

Samsung UE37D6530 review


The Samsung UE37D6530 TV is easily one of the prettiest flat-screens on the market, but does the Active Shutter 3D tech inside live up to expectations and show that there's more to this TV than just its looks?

Smooth, sharp hi-def pictures ; Enjoy free 3D

Media streaming support tetchy ; No 3D glasses included

We've taken the best of the best smart HD TVs for under a grand, put them together and made them battle it out, but which is the best in a toe-to-toe rumble?

Samsung UE40D6530 review


Samsung's UE40D6530 LED TV may be positioned beneath the brand's top of the line Series 7 and 8 models like the Samsung UE55D8000, but it's an enticing proposition for budget-watchers who want a designer 40in telly with net connected smarts.

Elegant design ; Integrated Wi-Fi ; Noise-free hi-def picture

3D double imaging ; Uneven media streaming ; No 3D glasses supplied

Samsung UE40D6530 review


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.

Sharp HD image quality; content-rich Smart Hub portal; integrated wi-fi

No 3D glasses; mild 3D crosstalk; social media is a faff ; Performance: 4/5 ; Design: 5/5 ; Features: 5/5 ; Overall: 4/5

Samsung UE40D6530


Can Samsung's most affordable 40in 3D LED TV, the 40D6530, deliver the same quality as the brand's more expensive 3D models?

Stunning design ; Frequently spectacular pictures ; Brilliant multimedia features inc built-in wi-fi

Some backlight inconsistencies ; Minor crosstalk during bright scenes ; No 3D glasses included for free

As noted in other reviews of Samsung’s 2011 Smart TVs, by no means all the apps available on the service are useful or even interesting. But then the same is true of the apps for Smartphones, and that hasn’t stopped them becoming a runaway success!

Samsung D6530 review


For this review we tested the 40in model in the 6 Series D6530 range, but it's also available in 32in (UE32D6530), 37in (UE37D6530), 46in (UE46D6530) and 55in (UE55D6530) screen sizes. All models have identical specifications except for their...

Fantastic design and plenty of features, the D6530 has very few faults. It doesn't have the best image quality but the price is good

Samsung D6530 (UE40D6530) review


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.

Good value for money ; Great Internet features ; Bright 3D images ; Very impressive 2D picture quality ; Beautiful design

Still some slight ghosting visible on 3D images

The Samsung UE40D6530 impresses on almost every level. Its design is super-stylish, its Internet features are top-notch, its 2D pictures have serious bite, and even its 3D performance is above average for an LED TV.

The Samsung UE40D6530 is part of Samsung's Series 6 Smart 3D range. The 40-inch LED TV is capable of displaying images in full 3D and in full high definition (1080p). Smart TV functionality lets users access web applications such as YouTube and film...

On or off, the Samsung UE40D6530 is a true beauty that measures less than 3cm thick in profile. Its thin metal build really looks the part. On looks alone the Samsung UE40D6530 is enough to light up any home cinema set-up. Its lightweight design and...

As good as the picture quality can be, there are times when images don’t have quite the correct contrast. On occasion there isn’t quite the level of clarity found in some of the Samsung UE40D6530’s competitors. That said, it doesn’t spoil what is still...

The Samsung UE40D6530 is a beautiful fully featured 3D TV with Smart TV online functionality. It produces strong 3D images, but its clarity isn’t quite as strong as some of its competitors.
