The Samsung UE40D6530 will definitely get tech fans drooling thanks to its long list of high end specifications.

Note: Model numbers.
The model reviewed can be found at the Comet store with the model number Samsung UE40D6530WKXXU.

It is not only a super slim LED TV with great looks to match but it is also ready to let you watch the latest 3D movies and TV broadcasts in full HD 1080p, letting you enjoy superior colour, brightness and clarity greater than even cinemagoers are able to access.

40 inches of widescreen should also help to make this package look all the more interesting and we have not even touched upon the Smart TV platform which is integrated into the Samsung UE40D6530, so let us dive in and see what other delights lurk within.

Improved 3D experience

Since this is a 3D TV it makes sense to talk about how this stereoscopic effect is delivered and whether it is better than the first generation of 3D TVs which arrived last year.

In short the Samsung UE40D6530 is easily able to give you a smoother 3D experience than its predecessors, largely thanks to the 400Hz Clear Motion Rate technology which means it never misses a beat, no matter how fast paced and frantic the onscreen action becomes when watching 2D or 3D content.

Each viewer will need a set of active 3D specs, but this is the case with most modern 3D TVs and is well worth it to see what all the fuss is about.

Of course if you have sunk a hefty chunk of cash into the Samsung UE40D6530 and you want to get more out of its 3D capabilities then you can switch on the 2D to 3D conversion capability which will instantly give several degrees of tangible depth to your 2D movies and shows.
This ramps up the value of the TV and will effectively give a fresh lick of paint to any content you choose.

Access to online content is a breeze

The Smart TV platform which Samsung is rolling out for many of its high end sets is accessible from the UE40D6530.

With three USB ports, built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity allows the user to plug it into your broadband router via network cable if you want to download Samsung Apps, access the internet using a full web browser and install bespoke, living room-friendly services such as YouTube and BBC iPlayer.

Those social butterflies who cannot stand to be out of touch with friends will love the inclusion of Facebook and Twitter in the list of Samsung Apps.

Final Thoughts

The Samsung UE40D6530 is not just suitable for people who have a decent broadband connection and the know how to get it online. With its USB ports, four HDMI inputs and even a pair of SCART connections there should be lots of ways for other users to squeeze the most out of the TV.

If you want a good looking, well priced LED TV with full 3D capabilities and a 40 inch screen then the Samsung UE40D6530 is hard to beat, particularly if you want to bring your entertainment system right up to date in terms of technical spec.

    Bought a UE40D6530 and have had nothing but trouble with it for accessing the i-player. Now they tell us it is because of lack of Samsung software and other people are having this problem. One of the main reasons for choosing this tv was to access the i-player to catch up on previous programmes and also to access the Love Film for our grandchildren. We are very disappointed with it, have had the engineers out twice since buying it in January and they tell us it may be eight weeks before Samsung obtain the additional software to solve the problem. We are going to take it back and buy another more reliable make.

    M&T are correct about iplayer. It does not work properly. If you slect a programme then change your mind it will not play the alternative programme chosen and you have to switch out of the ‘HUB’ and go back into it and iplayer again to play whatever the second iplayer choice was. The Iphone app will not work on IOS versions older than 4.2. so that cuts out everyone on itouch ipod and iphones made up until very recently. Overall forget the smart version.
