The Samsung 6500 LED 3D TV is a great option for anyone in the market for a mid-point LED television. It offers many of the options of the higher price sets (such as the high-end Samsung 8000 series), but lacks the pricier cutting edge technology (Such as the motion and voice control). Through-out the video portion of this review reference the LG LM6700, which is at a a similar price point.


Picture Quality - It took some tweaking, but once I had it properly set-up the picture quality was very good. The picture is crisp (which you would expect from any 1080P set), but it also offers better brightness than our LG LM6700. The LG always seems a little dark, but the Samsung 6500 offers better overall brightness, and to me, it makes the picture *look* better. One other thing, until I got the picture adjusted properly, I did notice some color blooming which subtracted from the overall picture sharpness... never fear, this can be adjusted out. Some people may also be concerned with the 120Hz refresh.... I also own the Samsung 8000,and my version is 240Hz, and I don't notice any difference. I guess the only time it maybe noticeable is while watching a 3D Blu-ray.

3D- The Samsung 6500 comes with 2 pairs of active (read *battery operated*) 3D glasses. Using the Samsung 6500 to convert 2D to 3D works, ok, but it will not take your breath away. I used it to watch a baseball game, and "Men in Black" and while I noticed the difference - it was not dramatic. The LG LM6700 uses passive glasses, and to me, seems to have better 2D to 3D capability.

Sound - Again, it took some adjustments to get the integrated speakers to sound the way I wanted. It required me to turn the surround setting on, and play around with the set-up.

Let me start with PROS
Ultimate configuration with awesome 3D experience, super clarity and sound quality. Would buy it again when below issues are resolved.


Hell lot of software Issues:

1) All of a sudden Netflix froze and it doesn't respond to any remote control button. I have to power it off and when I power it on with wifi and/or wired connection I see multiple issues as below
2) After the above step if i power on my TV it starts with a Green horizontal line on the top edge of the TV
3) When ever this happens it loses all my Network settings and it doesn't connect the Smart HUB (Netflix/YouTube). It doesn't even detect my WIFI or a wired LAN connection.
4) Whenever YouTube gets stuck/freezes TV doesn't respond to remote control and on restarting the TV wired or wifi connection gets disconnected and doesn't detect wifi or wired LAN connection.
5) At times when I watch YouTube TV restarts all of a sudden.
6) When ever I restart YouTube if I forward the earlier video I was watching the amount of forwarding/image doesn't match with the time it is buffered for. Ex: Fast forwarding the video for 30 mins approximately shows 1 hour 30 mins on the seek bar of YouTube.
7) Netflix doesn't connect thru wifi initially so I have to connect through LAN cable
8) 3d doesn't work with Netflix

TV Model No: UN46ES6500FXZA
Version No: TS01
Serial No: Z4XXXXXXXXX179M

Below are the Transaction numbers for the calls made to Samsung support to resolve. But nothing helps.

1) Samsung Transaction No: 2xxxxxxx40 -- Was to reset to factory settings only to see the issues again.

By S. kal on August 19, 2012
I decided to actually do a review of the smart TV features since that's what it's sold as, rather than just give it 5 stars and act like "its so cool and good picture, I love my newt TV!!" I mean if you wanted good picture and nothing more you can get that for $500. So here goes...

My goal was use this TV's features to get all my content from the internet so I could cut the cable and save $900 a year, that's enough to buy a new TV every year. I was going to use the web browser to visit various TV websites like NBC, PBS, etc. like I do on my computer and view shows that way, instead of cable. I was going to use netflix for other shows and movies, plus the on-demand apps for any movies/shows not on netflix... (and antennas work in my area). Total price for internet plus netflix/onlineTV would be $30/month. This can supposedly be done with PS3 and xbox; but for those of us who don't play games we don't see a point in buying those devices for simple tasks.

Assembly: You know that problem with the screws not fitting in the stand that they've been having for almost a year now? Well it would have been excusable if this were a new item to hit market; but I bought this thing in August and apparently they're still having the problem. I wasn't going to wait 2 weeks for them to ship new screws so I pushed hard and jammed them in,that seems to work.

First turning it on: The thing asks to Update; say "YES!!!". I didn't at first which meant each time I tried a feature it had to update that individual feature. The whole process of waiting for updates took about an hour. I tried going to manual update but the whole screen went blank each time I tried that; I had no idea what was going on.
