Advantages: sleek design, beautiful picture and useful smart apps
Disadvantages: some issues with motion plus and white writing on black background
My partner and I have been researching buying a new T.V. for a while now and we finally took the plunge last month and went for this new Samsung. A step up from the old T.V. would be an understatement. The 6300 looks great as it is ultra-thin and has a very stylish looking stand. The screen itself also has hardly any outside rim so you get a lot more TV than stand which looks a lot nicer when the T.V. is both off and on! The colours are beautiful and vibrant and look even better when we watch Blu-ray's and HD T.V. The 3D is excellent on the smart panel and also when playing 3D video games, however it does fall a little short when watching 3D Blu-ray's as fast action scenes can become a bit blurry. It came with two free pairs of active 3D glasses however the passive ones do not work, you have to buy more pairs of active glasses which are £16-£20 each if you require more pairs for friends or family.
The 6300 also has some great features with its new smart device, this means that you can watch Netflix/Love film on your T.V. without having to log on via PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 etc. They also have a few programs on there to demo your new 3D feature of which a few are fairly interesting documentaries. There are smart apps for kids interactive games and an app which keeps track of your fitness and weight loss. You have the option to completely tailor your display settings too. There are a few ready-made options such as "movie" "natural" and "standard" but you are also able to adjust the contrast and brightness (and many more technical things) in much finer detail than on a normal T.V.. The Samsung 6300 also comes with new motion plus technology, now, this can be a good thing and a bad thing, whilst watching normal television motion plus is brilliant as it makes all of the camera movements much smoother, however it took us several tries to make it work for Blu-ray's as the motion plus would only work for a few frames and then skip and stick on the last frame, this gets very annoying and takes a lot of screen adjustments to get it working in harmony with the Blu-ray player, it was worth it in the end though! The LED also has a few problems with white writing on a black background (e.g. credits at the end of a movie) as the writing normally comes up as a very dark grey and gradually gets lighter and lighter. Apparently this is unavoidable in most LED's and considering how good the picture is normally was not a big deal for me.
The sound is also very good; however we have a home cinema surround system so have never really had to use this feature. The T.V. comes with four HDMI sockets so is brilliant if you have multiple video game devices as I do, on the old T.V. I was forever unplugging and re-plugging between Sky, the PS3 and the Xbox 360 but now I just press a button on the remote and I can choose which device I wish to use. It also comes with a USB port which a camera or smart phone can be plugged into.
All in all this is a wonderful TV and I am so glad we finally went for this one, it has pretty much everything: a stunning picture, a stylish look to it and lots of helpful smart features which really gave it the edge over some of its competitors.
Summary: a brilliant tv with lots of nice extras
