We bought this to replace our 10-year old's pink TV which was beginning to fail after 6 years and had become "too girly"!
The Samsung is easy to set up and connected to our wi-fi without any issues. The on-screen menu is intuitive and easy to use, with switching between TV and internet features as Youtube being very straightforward too. The Smart search facility was faster than expected: Samsung are one of the market leaders in Smart TV's and this shows. There is also a predictive text search facility which is actually helpful, unlike the same facility on some mobiles! Picture quality is excellent, and we compared this against an LG and Sony, both of which were both very similar in price, with the Samsung coming out better than either. In fact a recent Gadget Show on Channel 5 tested a similar, but 32in screen, Samsung against a couple of other makes, from memory a Philips and LG, and the Samsung came first there too.
I would say the only minor negative point - and this isn't Samsung's fault - is that the 3D facility has only been used twice: once when we set up the TV and the first time my daughter invited her friends round to see the TV! Plus the button cell batteries in the 3D glasses seem to drain quite quickly.
So the only question to ask yourself is: do I really want or need 3D, or would I rather do something else with the £100 or so saving?
The UE40F6400-BK is an amazing quality TV, with 3D capabilities as well as the traditional High Definition picture format to ensure your viewing experience is simply breathtaking. With 4 HDMI ports and 3 USB ports, it is easily usable with most other devices and very easy to use for people inexperienced with technology, as HDMI and USB cables are cheap and easy to use. This television works great with my Sky+ HD box, especially when it comes to 3D channels, which this television excels at displaying. Other cable providers will also display brilliantly on this television.
To conclude, this Samsung television may be a little on the expensive side, but you pay for quality and, as someone who owns a number of television sets, you are definitely getting quality with this product, as it will not fail to satisfy needs from the casual TV viewer to a television expert looking for quality display, and it will surely not disappoint.
