The Samsung ES6710 has all the advantages of the ES6300 while also correcting its major fault. It therefore displays accurate onscreen colours, as well as offering near-perfect 3D viewing and high contrast. Picky home movie buffs who like to watch films in pitch-darkness may still prefer the ES7000 for its deeper blacks.
Best of the rest
Affordable 3D TV
The Samsung ES6300 does a great job in 3D mode with practically no crosstalk (images for the left and right eyes overlapping). There's still room for improvement, though, with colour fidelity that could be better (average Delta E 4.7) and contrast that may prove a little on the low side for watching TV with the lights off (2260:1).
Sony Bravia KDL-32HX753
Picture quality is decent in this TV. Plus, the 3D mode has really improved compared with the 2011 model as there's practically no crosstalk here at all.
It may not have the best picture out there, but the Samsung ES5500 should be good for anyone looking for a TV in this price range. Plus, the model we tested showed no signs of clouding (bright patches in dark areas of the screen). That gets a big thumbs up from us.
