Samsung UE32B6000 LED TV Review

Samsung ue32b6000 led tv

When LCD TV sets began to enter the homes of people around the nation, those of us who had been used to massive great CRT monsters for years would go around saying things like ‘gosh, aren’t these new tellies thin?’. And at the time we were right. However, Samsung have gone and made another piece of technology look flabby and outdated, again. Their latest line of LED TVs are slim, sexy and slightly more expensive than similarly sized competition at the moment.

Ultra Slim Panel Gets Up Close

First there’s that all important thin screen design. At just 1.2 inches deep the 32B6000 LED TV is one of the first HD ready sets that can be mounted virtually flush to the wall. This thinness is achieved because the LED side lighting which gives the LED TV its brightness takes up a miniscule amount of space whilst providing high levels of brightness. This particular LED TV is 32″ across the diagonal, which you may or may not know is the most popular size of HD TV. It also has the all important full HD resolution support of 1080p, something most 32″ screens are currently lacking. This means that you’ll be able to watch HD broadcasts and Blu Ray movies just the way they were intended.

LED Edge Lighting for Darker Blacks

Like all Samsung LED TV sets, the 32B6000 is remarkable for more than just its slim design. It also has some very nifty picture processing and display capabilities which means that the colour fidelity and contrast ratio are to die for. Vibrant whites and deep dark blacks match the gorgeously varied hues this LED TV is capable of displaying, so cinophiles will be just as well catered for as sports enthusiasts. As an added bonus the LED lighting technology allows the 32B6000 to use up to 40% less energy than a standard LCD TV, giving it true green credentials.

Now the design. It’s not just the anorexic screen depth that’s remarkable, the whole of the LED TV range from Samsung falls into their ‘touch of colour’ range. This means that though the main surrounding plastic that borders the display is black, this fades into red and then subtly on into a completely clear halo. All in all it’s the height of kitsch fashion and will fit in well with most modern rooms. Some people may find the touch of red a little strong, but if you shop around you may find other colour options.


You may be wondering if there are any downsides to this LED TV. Sadly there are a couple. Firstly the uniformity of the brightness across the screen isn’t quite up to scratch, leaving some areas slightly dimmer than others. Whilst this isn’t a product destroying flaw it may irritate those who are used to other technologies of lighting. Secondly there’s the price. Because Samsung is the first to put an LED TV on the consumer market and the technology is brand new, there’s quite a hefty premium to pay for the privilege of being an early adopter. So, to conclude, the many upsides of the Samsung 32B6000 LED TV far outweigh the couple of niggling flaws. It has all of the modern connections you’d expect, with 4 HDMI ports and styling to brag about, as well as being eco-friendly.
