Final Thoughts

The UE46D8000 is truly stunning to look at but what most consumers are interested in is how the panel performs.

Well this set in its 40 inch and 55 inch model sizes were both tested over at Which Magazine and they were both labelled with a BEST BUY moniker.
They quoted that along with excellent 2D and 3D picture quality the sets delivered good internet features plus HDD recording via the built-in HD Freeview tuners direct to an external harddrive.

Ok there was a few issues with sound quality, but this is found on most LED TVs due to there thin form factor.

Had they reviewed the UE46D8000 I am sure they would have come to a similar conclusion.

Samsung UE46D6530 Review

samsung ue46d6530 review
To bring 46 inches of glorious 3DTV into your home there is arguably no better option than the Samsung UE46D6530.

Note: Model numbers.
The model reviewed can be found at the Comet, Littlewoods and Amazon with the model number Samsung UE46D6530WKXXU.

Samsung was one of the first firms to start making 3D TVs and therefore it has had time to enhance the technology and make it even more essential for 2011.

Super fast refresh rate for enhanced viewing

The first essential feature for an active 3D TV of this size is a decent refresh rate.

Sub-par refresh rates can mean that during 3D playback the image can become blurred or muddled, spoiling the experience.

Thankfully the Samsung UE46D6530 has an effective refresh rate of 400Hz, which is more than enough to make 2D viewing smooth and perfect for delivering cinematic 3D playback which will make your investment seem worth every penny.

Built-in 2D to 3D converter on the UE46D6530

You will need to buy 3D active shutter glasses to view the 3D effects on the Samsung UE46D6530 as they were intended.

However, even if you do not own a 3D ready Blu Ray player or any 3D movies you can start using the TV’s 3D functionality as soon as you start it up.

This is thanks to the intelligent 2D to 3D processing which will automatically add depth to standard 2D video in real time.
This can turn your existing movie collection and even high def TV broadcasts into visually impressive 3D before your very eyes.

Smart TV will appeal to all the family

While 3D will be at the top of the list of assets for the Samsung UE46D6530 this is far from a one trick pony.

This set is part of Samsung’s Smart LED TV family, which basically denotes the fact that it is web enabled and has the widest selection of content available to view on any platform to date.

With a built in Wi-Fi adapter you do not even need to find an Ethernet cable that will reach your living room and once you have the Samsung UE46D6530 connected to your broadband service the entertainment world will be your oyster.

Built-in applications covering on demand video from YouTube and BBC iPlayer come as standard.

If you have a subscription with LOVEFiLM you can stream movies to your TV rather than waiting for them to arrive on DVD.

Social TV connects to your Facebook and Twitter accounts

If you like to socialise online but do not want to reach for your laptop each time you have something to say then the built in Twitter and Facebook functions will keep you contented.

Meanwhile this is one of the few LED TVs to actually have a full web browser built into it.
This means you can search and view virtually any website in existence.

UE46D6530 Key features

  • 46 inch Full HD Panel
  • 1920 × 1080 resolution
  • HyperReal Engine & Wide Colour Enhancer for improved graphics
  • 400 Hz Clear Motion Rate
  • High Def Freeview Tuner
  • SRS TheatreSound HD to help with the poor sound associated with slim panels
  • 10w × 2 speakers
  • Smart TV
  • Samsung Apps
  • Smart Hub
  • Social TV – Facebook & Twitter

Final Thoughts

The 3D playback and the web features make the Samsung UE46D6530 one tough LED TV to beat.

Its 46 inch screen is expansive, its styling is impeccable and the LED backlighting will enhance visual performance no matter what you are watching.

If you crave the authentic cinematic experience then this is one of the contemporary big boys that should work its way into your heart.

Samsung UE46D5520R / UE46D5520 Review

samsung ue46d5520 review price
The Samsung UE46D5520 represents the gold standard for what modern LED TVs should be able to offer.

As well as featuring Freeview HD for subscription free high def telly, it has a wealth of online features made available thanks to the market leading Smart TV platform exclusive to Samsung sets.

Note: Model Numbers Explained
The model UE46D5520 reviewed here is available at various retailers but may have different model numbers shown on the LED TV’s in their store floor rooms or on their websites.

UE46D5520 – Dixons, 1staudiovisual, Currys, John Lewis
UE46D5520R – Amazon, Comet, Debenhams
UE46D5520RKXXU – Argos, Directtvs

Watch the action on a 46 inch Full HD Panel

The Samsung UE46D5520 is not a LED TV designed to boast about its features on the outside.
Its 46 inch LCD panel is definitely on the large side, featuring a 1080p full HD resolution and a 100Hz refresh rate to ensure that fast moving video is not impacted by blurred, watery onscreen reproduction.

Whether you are watching a Blu Ray movie or viewing free to air HD broadcasts the Samsung UE46D5520 will perform well and even non-HD sources can be brought up to scratch thanks to its advanced image processing technology.

The UE46D5520 interacts online with special apps designed by Samsung

The thing that will keep you coming back to the Samsung UE46D5520 is its Smart TV functionality.

Once you have linked it to your home internet service via Ethernet or Wi-Fi dongle, the latter of which can be purchased separately, you can browse and ineract with a whole host of Samsung TV Apps.

Please note that the UE46D5520 does not feature the fully interactive web browser that is available on its high end models.

The Smart TV service extends into apps which can be added to the library of programs on the Samsung UE46D5520.

You can catch up with the past seven days of TV using the BBC iPlayer app, look at funny clips and music videos with the YouTube app, update your mates on your life with the Facebook app and even send messages out to your followers using the Twitter app.

Samsung is adding more and more apps to the service as time passes so the Smart TV capabilities of the Samsung UE46D5520 will continue to improve, making it a good long term investment.

If you are not going to use the Smart TV options straight away then there is plenty more to like about the Samsung UE46D5520.

Connects to virtually all your home entertainment equipment via USB and HDMI

It has four HDMI inputs, two USB ports and plenty of other connections for the various home entertainment devices you will have around the home.

You can add a digital camera or camcorder to the mix, connect your games console and view Blu Ray movies, all without filling up the available inputs and then having to mess around with wires around the back of the screen.

Final Thoughts

Despite the long list of features found on this TV it is by no means a bulky machine.

The LED backlighting means that it is only three centimetres thick and while it is an edge lit display there is no problem with inconsistent illumination as can be found on less capable LED TVs.

In short the Samsung UE46D5520 is a great option for someone who is looking for a future-proof LED TV without the desire to pay extra for 3D playback.

Samsung UE46D5000 / UE46D5000PWXXU Review

samsung ue46d5000 led tv compare price
In the past choosing a 46 inch TV meant getting a bulky, cumbersome set which might not really live up to the promise of providing a cinematic level of viewing quality.

Thanks to LED TV technology there are now sets like the Samsung UE46D5000 on the market which are considerably slimmer, lighter and more energy efficient than their predecessors while upping the ante when it comes to on-screen picture quality and performance-enhancing extras.

Note: Model Numbers Explained
The model reviewed here is available at various retailers but may have different model numbers shown on the LED TV’s in their store floor rooms or on their websites.

UE46D5000 – Dixons, 1staudiovisual, Currys, John Lewis
UE46D5000PWXXU – Comet, Laskys, Amazon, Woolworths

Minimalistic styling that would look good when hung on any wall

The Samsung UE46D5000 has the same build quality and external styling as a number of other contemporary models from this manufacturer.
From the front it is a simple rectangle with no curves or soft edges to hamper its minimalist design.

The thin strip of clear plastic which surrounds the black bezel is the only quirk on show and so it should not put off those who are looking for something simple to fit into an uncluttered living space.

46 inch panel with enough on-board tech for a super picture

The 46 inch screen size means that a 1080p full HD resolution is essential, which is precisely what the Samsung UE46D5000 LED TV has as standard.

Samsung’s Wide Colour Enhancer is onboard which takes a very thorough approach to bringing the picture to life.
Each individual pixel and hue is analysed and presented in a way that will seem natural, with a particular emphasis on putting a real degree of polish on high definition content.

The LED backlighting goes hand in hand with this feature, not only promoting rich colours but also offering deep blacks and well defined whites with a contrast ratio that would not have been attainable on LCD panels in the past.

Built-in Freeview, 4 HDMI ports plus USB connectivity on the UE46D5000

The Samsung UE46D5000 has a Freeview digital TV tuner built into it so you can discard your standalone set top box.

It also has four HDMI inputs to keep all your HD devices connected at the same time for easy switching.
Like a number of its rivals the Samsung UE46D5000 has a USB port on hand to help you share your digital photographs and home videos with ease on the big screen.

It is compatible with a variety of video file types so you can quickly transfer clips onto a USB drive from your computer and make the most of them on the big screen.

Lower your carbon footprint in these cost saving times

Samsung is keen to emphasise the green credentials of all of its LED TVs and the Samsung UE46D5000 is no different in this department.

If you are upgrading from an older LCD TV then it could be up to 40 per cent more energy efficient, reducing bills and cutting your carbon footprint.

The built in sensor to determine the ambient lighting in the room and thus adjust backlight intensity and other settings appropriately is just one aspect of this eco-friendly approach to entertainment.

Final Thoughts

If a plasma screen will be too bulky and a smaller TV just will not do, try out the 46 inch Samsung UE46D5000 and see why many people keep going back to this firm time after time.
It may be an entry level LED TV but it ensures you get a lot for your money.

If you are not bothered with having the latest online widget connectivity that feature heavily in upper range models then this telly offers outstanding quality at a knock down price.

Samsung UE46C5800 LED TV Review

samsung ue46c5800 ledtv best price
Get the popcorn ready, Samsung are launching their latest range in home entertainment. In particular the Samsung UE46C5800 LED TV has arrived.

This sleek and stylish chunk of technology aims to transform your living room into your very own private cinema. And with Samsung’s Slim LED expertise, it saves on house space while offering the best in picture quality.
The simple uncluttered design lends a timeless feel that blends in with the décor, whether your home is traditionally furnished or the peak of modernity.

1920 x 1080 Resolution gives Pixel Perfect Quality

Whereas the previous generation of high definition TV sets generated 720 lines of information, this baby has an impressive 1080 lines. This gives a picture quality of 1920 by 1080 pixels.
Better still, it contains a Freeview HD unit with Samsung software, so that viewers can instantly access the high definition stations, such as the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, through the existing house aerial.

Although this impressive 46-inch screen is not ready for 3D, it does feature Samsungs Wide Colour Enhancer Pro. This may sound rather like something from a futuristic spaceship, but in fact it enhances the images on your screen, to achieve what Samsung describe as ‘more real than reality’.

All this colour intensity adds up to a picture as lifelike as is currently possible. This piece of technology, developed by the boffins at Samsung, boosts the colours for a spectrum as good as anything you see in the real world.

This model encompasses several state-of-the-art features designed for viewing pleasure. The contrast ratio, for example, is 300,000 to 1.
Contrast refers to the differences between the colours on the screen. Literally, with this make, the whites are whiter and the blacks are blacker.

Judder Free Picture on the UE46C5800

There’s also a 150-motion rate. This facility eliminates the judder effect that lesser HD televisions experience when displaying fast movement. You might have seen it in a sports programme or an action movie. A 150-motion rate makes the Samsung UE46C5800 LED TV judder-free.

As you’d expect the audio is Dolby Digital, for that surround sound effect. Close your eyes and you can believe you’re actually right there, in the crowd at that football match.

Link up to your audio/visual equipment via 4 HDMI and 2 USB ports

This set has all the connection options to keep up with the digital revolution. These include 4 HDMI inputs, which are all v1.4 with 3D, compared to the two HDMI inputs on the average television. Furthermore the Samsung UE46C5800 LED TV comes equipped with an audio return Channel, 2 USB 2.0 Inputs, 1 component video output, 1 Ethernet port, 1 headphone output, 1 PC input and 1 scart output.

In other words it has everything you’d need to link up with the world of digital communication. Blue Ray DVD’s, your home computer, gaming machines such as Playstation, Wii and X-Box. Headphones allow the viewer to crank up the volume without disturbing the rest of the household.

Final Thoughts

To sum up, as the country steadily upgrades to digital signal, the Samsung UE46C5800 stands ready to make the most of these new opportunities. It is a breath-taking piece of equipment that will feature in any living space.

Samsung UE46C8000 LED 3DTV Review

samsung ue468000 led tv best price
The Samsung UE46C8000 LED TV is one of the few HD sets that can offer 3D playback for a deep, immersive viewing experience that heralds the dawn of a new generation in the home entertainment market.

With a 46 inch screen it is large enough to satisfy movie buffs and sports fans alike and if you want to future-proof your living room with the latest technology, then this is one of the 3D TVs that should be on your wish list.

Slimline Panel with Green Credentials

The Samsung UE46C8000 uses LED technology for its backlighting so there is no bulk to take up room and make it look chunky, you get a slim, stylish looking TV that is a joy to behold whether you mount it on the wall or stand it on its own.
The display is complimented by a bezel that is fashioned from metal to give it a metallic sheen that is not distracting or over the top.This means that whether it is on or off, the Samsung UE46C800 will look its best.

On top of looking great, this TV is also 50 per cent more energy efficient than the equivalent model from the previous year – Samsung is always working to cut down on emissions to give you the most responsible product possible.

3D Ready plus 2D upscaling

The killer function of the Samsung UE46C8000  is of course its 3D capabilities and it does not disappoint.

You can view 3D content from the latest 3D Blu Rays if you have a compatible player and even more impressive is the fact that Samsung claim that its 3D engine can turn plain old 2D content into a 3D spectacle. In general practise this produces a 3D type visual effect but it doesn’t compete with proper 3D content.
But it does mean you do not have to replace your DVD or Blu Ray collection all over again to enjoy this cutting edge feature.

It is worth bearing in mind that you will need to buy your own active shutter 3D glasses in order to unlock the 3D content and each viewer will need their own pair.
However, if you consider the Samsung UE46C800 as 3D-ready, then you can always upgrade your accessories and equipment at a later date, making this a sensible long term investment.

UE46C8000 connects to the internet for that added multi-media experience

If you are watching 2D content on the Samsung UE46C800, you can enjoy it in full HD 1080p and the excellent colour reproduction and contrast levels are a stamp of Samsung’s reputation in this market.

There are four HDMI inputs and a host of other options which give you flexibility in how you connect your various multimedia devices to your TV.
There is also onboard internet connectivity to let you watch online video, rent films, check the news and even access your Facebook and Twitter accounts, thanks to Samsung’s Internet@TV service.

This is one of the top of the line TVs that offer Skype compatibility, which means you can buy the camera accessory and chat to friends and family anywhere in the world in full colour video using your broadband connection.

Final Thoughts

If you want a 3D ready LED TV that has movie star good looks and a host of features to tide you over until you can afford that 3D Blu Ray player, then the Samsung UE46C8000 is the TV for you.

Alternatively if you have already invested in 3D technology, or if your current player or games console can offer 3D content via an update, then you can delve into the three dimensional audiovisual experience immediately.

Samsung UE46C6530U / UE46C6540 LED TV Review

samsung ue46c6530u ue46c6540 ledtv best price
Note: Model Numbers Explained
The model reviewed here is available at various retailers but may have different model numbers shown on the LED TV’s in their store floor rooms or on their websites.

UE46C6530U – John Lewis, Selfridges, Electrical Experience
UE46C6530 – Amazon, 1staudiovisual, Pixmania, Beyond Television
UE46C6540 – Comet

All the above models have the same specifications but may differ in the colour of the panel surround. Please check with the respective supplier.

Slim and Energy Saving Design

The Samsung UE46C6530 follows on from the range of LED TVs that the South Korean manufacturer debuted in 2009 and so it still has the incredibly slim build, but it comes with an overhauled design which gives it an angular, sharp look that is only broken up by the four-pronged curves of its stand.
A thin transparent border surrounds its standard bezel and it is not adorned with any abrasive colours, so it will be easily added to an existing set up without looking out of place.

The second benefit of LED technology is the fact that it is far more environmentally friendly than the backlighting systems used on cheaper and older HDTVs.
With the Samsung UE46C6530 you get quality and the opportunity to take the moral high ground without have to make any sacrifices.

Superior Picture Quality thanks to 100Hz refresh rate and Colour Enhancer Technology

The full HD resolution supported by the Samsung UE46C6530 means that it is great for viewing Blu-Ray movies or HD television broadcasts and with a 100Hz refresh rate provided by the Motion Plus technology, you will not miss a millisecond of your favourite shows or sporting events due to blur or ghosting.
The picture is further improved thanks to the Wide Colour Enhancer Plus technology, which aims for realism over excessive saturation.
The LED TV will analyse each individual pixel in order to ensure that it is displaying the most natural and vibrant colour possible, which means even old content will have new life endowed upon it.
The contrast ratio is also excellent and adds to the immersion and with the automatic light sensor, you can let your TV adjust the backlight levels to save energy and alter according to the ambient light levels in your living room.

Connect the UE46C6530 to your wireless router for internet services

The Samsung UE46C6530 comes with access to the Internet@TV service, which you can receive if you have a broadband connection at home.
By either plugging in the TV to a network cable or buying a Wi-Fi adaptor; you can access various big name services like the BBC iPlayer and LoveFilm, alongside weather, news services and social networking sites. This means if you are not in the mood for anything on the terrestrial channels and you want to check up on your Facebook profile, then you can do so without getting up and going to your computer.

Seamless connection to all your Samsung devices

The Samsung UE46C6530 is part of a range of TVs that are all about sharing. This is why it has access to Samsung’s All Share service, which means that multiple Samsung brand devices can interact with one another and distribute content wirelessly.
You can view pictures snapped on your smartphone or digital camera on the big screen without having to root around for the right wire and you can also stream video from your PC and playback music in the same way.

Conclusion

The Samsung UE46C6530 LED TV is a class, full HD set with a large 46 inch screen and plenty of life-extending features that will keep you returning for more day after day.
Its big screen boisterousness will attract serious movie and sports followers, while its interactive, online capabilities give it a versatility that you will not find elsewhere.

With extensive connectivity options, a contemporary design and a multitude of functions – the Samsung UE46C6530 is a great choice that will make a mark in your home with its imposing 46 inch screen.

Samsung UE46C7000 LED 3DTV Review

samsung ue46c7000 led 3dtv best price
This 3D ready LED TV from Samsung is one of the first wave of televisions to come with the 3D technology necessary to take advantage of the next step in home entertainment.

Although this is ostensibly at the lower end of the range, that position is only relative to the other 3D TVs and in reality the Samsung UE46C7000 is close to the top of the line.

Stunning Slimline Design

The 46 inch display of the Samsung UE46C7000 is large without being overwhelming and only a few years ago you would have had to shell out for a plasma screen in order to get a display of this size.
Now with the advances in LCD technology this gorgeous TV can exist and its slim design is made even more impressive thanks to the inclusion of LED backlighting.
This allows a frame depth of just a hair over two and a half centimetres and if you are thinking about mounting this on a wall the slender Samsung UE46C7000 will sit flush and barely peek out when viewed from the side.

3D HyperReal Processing produces beautiful images

The Samsung UE46C7000 comes with Samsung’s latest image processor called the 3D HyperReal Engine.
Without getting too technical, this boils down to a viewing experience in which colour, contrast and image resolution are all beautifully adjusted without requiring much user input.

Whether you are watching a 3D Blu Ray movie from a compatible player or catching up on the news in standard definition, this television will make the whole experience look as good as possible.
d and Standard High Def

As with all current 3D LED TV’s, you will need to wear special glasses if you want to see the effect and that means you will need to buy more if you want to share the experience with friends and family.

The Samsung UE46C7000 has an integrated Freeview tuner that is ready for the Freeview HD broadcasts that will be rolling out across the country over the next few years. This will allow you to watch high definition channels without the need for a subscription or a separate set top box. At the moment there are no 3D channels available on Freeview, but there are currently plans to bring 3D content in the future, so more functionality may be unlocked as time passes.

Save electricity with this power saving TV

Samsung has worked hard to make sure that the UE46C7000 is progressive not just in the home entertainment experience it can produce, but also in the efficiency of all of its components.
This basically means that it estimates the current range of televisions are 50 per cent more energy efficient than those it produced a year ago, so the Samsung UE46C7000 will use 50 per cent less energy than the equivalent TV set that arrived this time last year.
Although green issues may not be a major concern, you will not even have to act in order to save energy with the Samsung UE46C7000.

Supports Internet TV

The Samsung UE46C7000 supports a service called Internet@TV, which is integrated into many of Samsung’s high end sets.
This service is constantly growing and its offerings are becoming more appealing as Samsung wins new partners.

At the moment you can hook up the UE46C7000 to your broadband connection via cable or a separate Wi-Fi adaptor and then access a range of entertainment content from services such as BBC iPlayer, LoveFilm, YouTube and many more.

This basically means you can have access to a world of on-demand video content without having to rely on a separate set top box, so you should always find something to watch.

Final Thoughts

If you are in the market to embrace the latest 3DTV technology then bigger is definitely better. 3D tellys rarely come in under 40 inches and the reason for this is because you need a large screen to get any real benefits of watching 3D content.
This is where the UE46C7000 comes to the fore. The picture quality is absolutely stunning and the larger screen size will produce the best 3D effects.

Samsung UE46C5100 LED TV Review

samsung ue46c5100 led tv best price
The Samsung UE46C5100 has a premium design that is simple and unassuming.
It is finished in dark plastic, with Samsung claiming that it has been inspired by natural designs. This is slightly misleading, as the Samsung UE46C5100 is definitely a modern piece of technology that only echoes the colder, harder, more refined elements of the natural world, such as rock.
This all pulls together to create a television that is very easy on the eye and its slim build will help it look expansive without feeling clunky or ostentatious.

Large 46 inch screen with built-in Freeview

At the heart of the Samsung UE46C5100 is its 46 inch screen, which will look quite large in the average living room and will benefit from being viewed in bigger spaces.
Despite its considerable size, it is under three centimetres thick because of the slim LED backlighting. Its native resolution is 1080p, so you will be able to view high definition content on Blu Rays in the manner which the creators intended and it is able to deal with standard definition signals well, with the image processing engine working hard to squeeze as much detail as possible from TV broadcasts.

Thankfully there is an onboard Freeview tuner, which will pick up multiple channels where coverage is available.

Superior Colour Reproduction and Deep Blacks

The Samsung UE46C5100 has Samsung’s HyperReal Engine onboard, which combines with the wide colour enhancer to make every frame, particularly if it is provided via HDMI, look crisp, clear and uncannily realistic. The contrast ratio is also good for its class and the LED backlighting is cleverly applied to give you deep blacks and bright whites without causing the light to bleed excessively.

Play various media via USB and includes 4 HDMI Ports

The Samsung UE46C5100 has a total of four HDMI ports on offer, which is about the standard for HDTVs of all sizes and price ranges and most people will find this perfectly adequate for their needs.
On top of this you get component and composite video inputs for older DVD players and camcorders and there is also an analogue input that lets you hook up a computer for big screen thrills.

The inputs are rounded off with the inclusion of two USB ports, which you can use to playback movies and view still images that you may have stored on a USB memory stick.

Wireless Connectivity

Those who are particularly enterprising might find it useful to invest in a Wi-Fi adaptor which Samsung sells for use with the Samsung UE46C5100, as this will make it even easier to share media between your home computers, portable devices and TV, with full streaming of audio and video files available.

Final Thoughts

The Samsung UE46C5100 is part of the 5 Series range of LED TV’s that Samsung has recently launched in order to cater to the demands of the market for the next 12 months. It couples large screen size with a wealth of features that make it an excellent all-rounder and Samsung has trimmed out the higher end features that for the most part would be luxuries rather than essentials, so the cost of the set is kept affordable.
