Amongst Samsung’s comprehensive and perhaps confusing array of new HDTVs, the UE40C6000 sits roughly in the middle.
It is by no means a budget screen, as its 40 inch size and full HD resolution suggest, but it is also not going to break the bank if you are in the market for a classy, high performance television.
Ultra Clear Panel reduces screen glare
The Samsung UE40C6000 uses LED backlighting and since Samsung was the first manufacturer to introduce this feature last year it has become an essential aspect of any new screen.
LED backlighting allows for improved operational efficiency and slimmer screens whilst also making the picture look pixel perfect and if you want your TV to have aesthetic appeal as well as technical grunt, then an LED TV such as this is a sensible choice.
The panel uses Samsung’s Ultra Clear technology, which basically allows it to perform well no matter what the levels of light. You will not be distracted by light from the room or the windows reflecting off the screen, as is often a problem with glossy, high end TVs like this.
This consequently makes the impressive contrast levels achieved by the TV seem even greater.
Blur Free picture quality
The Samsung UE40C6000 has a native refresh rate of 100Hz, which combines with an excellent image processing engine to give you brilliant, clear images that are free from blurring even when the action is picking up pace.
The TV will extend frames and fill in the gaps where the source does not match up to its standard settings, which is particularly useful if you are a sports fan.
Samsung’s colour engine is also a feast for the eyes and if you have a Samsung Blu Ray player, it will work in tandem with the Samsung UE40C6000 in order to optimise the settings automatically, so you will not have to spend your time tweaking the various menus to match up to your high standards.
Plenty of HDMI slots plus connect your PC
There are four HDMI inputs available on the Samsung UE40C6000 and you can also plug in your PC via the D-Sub connection, or slot in other sources via composite and component video inputs.
A plethora of audio outputs are available, although the stereo speakers that are integrated into the TV itself are perfectly adequate for most viewing needs and only the enthusiastic home cinema fans will need to plug in a supplementary audio system.
2 USB ports to connect Camcorders and Memory Sticks with ease
The Samsung UE40C6000 has two USB ports which can be used for a variety of purposes.
Samsung states that you can use USB memory sticks to transport various media files over to your TV in order to listen to and view them on the big screen. This can include standard image files snapped using your digital camera, or even whole movies that you have downloaded to your PC or recorded on your camcorder.
If you buy the Wi-Fi adaptor for this TV you will be able to hook up to your home network and share files between your PC, mobile, TV and media player without having to get wires involved at all. You will need a little bit of persistence and technical confidence in order to set this up, but Samsung is really pushing to make all of its entertainment devices work together via Wi-Fi.
If you are looking for a fully featured LED TV that will easy connect to your home network of PC’s and laptops then the UE40C6000 may well fit the bill.
