Samsung UE-40KU6472/UE40KU6472 40 inch LED TV consumer opinion
Today we will take a look at one of Samsung’s 2016 Ultra HD (UHD) models – the 40-inch KU6472 (UE-40KU6472/UE40KU6472). This TV sells at around $550-$600 which is a very good price for such a good-quality Samsung.
This TV is not one of Samsung’s best lookers with its simple black frame and old-looking, not so futuristic stand. However, the lack of good looks is maybe the TV’s only downside.
The smart TV is Samsung’s trademark Tizen OS which takes the TV’s effectiveness to a whole new level. The start-up times are much lower and the access to Live TV is much faster, as well as to all other apps. It supports all popular local apps and is very intuitive, easy and pleasant to use. You have quick access to content all in one place – Live TV, Over the Top (OTT), games and so much more.
Samsung Smart View lets you easily transfer content between your phone, computer and TV. Connectivity gets a lot easier. While on the topic, communication-wise you also get Wi-Fi, LAN, 2 x USB, 3 x HDMI, a composite input (AV), RF input, Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC).
The brain of the KU6472 is a powerful quad-core that speeds up the TV so it can respond almost instantly to your commands and to use the multi-tasking feature Multi-link. You can also use ConnectShare to watch personal content by plugging in your USB or HDD device in the TV.
You really get value for your money – with the HDR premium feature you can enjoy even finest details in the brightest parts of the TV screen. The HDR feeling is similar to the cinema experience, but in your living room. The Active Crystal Color technology replaces LED with an extra source of light to the blue LED and offers much clearer whites with no blueish hint. The result is a wider colour range and much more natural colours with less consumed power.
Every detail is shown with an amazing level of realism, which is one of the advantages of the 4K resolution that this TV offers. As 4K is four times the resolution of HD, everything you watch looks better, much more detailed and realistic compared to just HD. You can process lower quality content to nearly UHD picture with Samsung’s UHD picture engine feature.
The local dimming technology – UHD dimming delivers optimized contrast ratio, colours and vividness of the picture for increased realism. The motion rate of 120 gives you smooth picture even when watching shows with a lot of movement, such as action movies, sports etc.
