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.
