4/5 Samsung UE55F6500 DigitalVersus 2013-12-23 15:05:00

Pros

  • Good picture quality (2D & 3D)
  • Faithful colours (Delta E = 1.7)
  • Good contrast (3,580:1)
  • Good motion interpolation, doesn't degrade image
  • Two remote controls, including one touch control
  • Media player supports a wide range of file formats

Cons

  • Potential clouding
  • Narrow viewing angles

Conclusion

The Samsung UE55F6500 is the 55" version of the UE40F6500. It's highly similar to the F6650. The only thing conceivably missing is motion control. Samsung has great connected services that are a notch above the competition. The F6500 has a balanced image, high contrast and good 3D. We would have given it five stars if it weren't for the high risk of clouding.
