5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT, April 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsung UN40H6350 40-Inch 1080p 120Hz Smart LED TV (2014 Model) (Electronics)
Gave this TV 5 stars because it is phenomenal!

I received my product in 2 days with Amazon Prime so shipping was right on time like promised. The factory settings on the TV are decent but you can make the picture look EXCELLENT if you tweak the settings to your liking. The picture is crisp and clear, making anything you watch way more enjoyable. The sound is also exceptional! It has the potential to be very loud if you put it on the "Amplify" setting which is located in your menu settings, and the speakers are in the back for those of you who are wondering.

As for the reviews about the apps not working, I did not have this problem. It seems that a lot of those reviews occurred awhile ago so they might have fixed that problem they were having. I turned the TV on and there was an update & everything works perfectly fine!

As for gaming, this TV is the best you can get at this price and anything below it. The input lag is 88ms but when you put it on PC mode it reduces the input lag to 44ms. If you don't know what input lag is, that is the half second delay when you're playing a first person shooter when you move your character. Input lag throws your game off and literally makes you worse than you really are ha-ha. For those wanting to know how to put it on PC mode, all you have to do is switch the input to the HDMI port you plugged your console in and when you select it you have to click tools on your remote. When you click tools on your remote, click edit name and then you should see where it says "PC." Click on that and BOOM, no more input lag and your video games run flawlessly. You really only need to do this if you're playing first person shooters though because you can't tell the difference on any other game really unless you're a gamer who has never seen sunlight.

I did a lot of research on this TV, so I tried including everything I was concerned about to assist others in making their purchase. To be honest, this is a great TV in my opinion. It is an affordable price, and the picture is beautiful!

P.S. For those of you who are looking to mount this TV as well, the VESA on the back is 200 x 200. It was very difficult for me to find that online so I hope I helped you out :)

Hi,
As you said did a lot of research on this TV... have tried the web browser.. is it working fine continuously for atleast 30 mins? Because in my previous Samsung Smart TV (UN40EH5300) the browser never worked more than 5 mins.

As far as I can tell... there is no PC mode for the 32inch. I am extremely disappointed, but the TV is fantastic regardless.

EDIT: There is a PC mode. You have to go to Source > HDMI (hold down enter) > Change name to PC

Bought the 48" for $599 delivered because of this review after hardcore gaming on an HDTV for the last 8 years.
The factoids, hyperbole, and enthusiasm sucked me right in. Thanks to Craigslist all is good, $599 back in my pocket.
At 44ms its at the threshold of playable. Its not good, great, a good price, a good gaming TV.
I have purchased 10 2014 model TVs in 4 months in the endless search for a perfect gaming and computer monitor TV.
This TV is the poorest build quality and appearance in person of any of them and its the first time I really noticed build quality. Slapped together with ill fitting loose pieces, cheap poorly designed case. The fake chrome base, massive bottom bezel, and plastic chrome accents are nothing short of hideous. The 6350 is so flimsy I was scared to swivel it on its own swivel base. If you grasp the 6350 at all four corners and just flex, twist, or shift the bezel, the whole TV creaks and moves around. The Sony I replaced it with could be used to beat a burglar unconscious and still turn on.

Bought a Sony at Walmart for $346 out the door. Overclocks up to true 75hz. Under 20ms input lag, many of the same premium features as this TV minus the not so Smart Hub (Roku 3). Controls my receiver with CEC and ARC just the same. Feels like it would survive a 10' drop. For $250 back in my pocket I can deal with software driven 120hz instead of native. Looks the same in person after testing. Sony has the motion control with software down and its a much cleaner natural picture. The video processing on the 6350 is ABYSMAL. So much artifacting and tiling its not even funny. You have to turn off all video processing features to get a real cinema picture without distortion in dark scenes.

3.5 kdr ground pounding on BF4 PC (700 hours). I also play some GRID Autosport / NBA2K14 on PC for reference.
