Samsung UE40F6200 review

 Review: May 2013  

Last updated June 2013

Rating: 3 stars

In a nutshell: The Samsung UE40F6200 is an attractive TV with an eye-catching silver finish and great Smart TV, but suffers from low picture quality.



Samsung's 2013 range of LED TVs is like a tangled maze, and the F6200 series in particular is waiting to catch unwary consumers. The trick Samsung has pulled here is that at first glance the F6200 looks much like the more upmarket F6500, although in closer inspection it's chunkier and not as slim, although no doubt the silver finish will easily impress.

It still offers Samsung's fabulous Smart TV system that's easy to use and stuffed with useful apps like catch-up TV and the S Recommendation system that brings programmes to your attention based on your previous viewing history. In this way, it appears to be a better buy than the cheaper F6100 model that misses out on sexy features like Wi-Fi and Smart TV.

But the devil is in the detail. Or in this case, in the picture quality. In contrast with the F6500 and F6800 models that have a 400 Clear Motion Rate, the poor old F6200 has a Clear Motion Rate of just 100Hz. This puts its picture quality on a par with entry-level TVs costing hundreds of pounds less. The backlighting is also less polished. Problems include cloudiness, lack of contrast and motion blur.

While it's true that if you lust after Samsung's outstandingly good Smart TV offering, this is the cheapest model that includes it, we really wouldn't recommend buying it. After all, your TV may be Smart, but if the picture quality is low, you won't feel very smart after spending so much money on it.

Instead, we'd recommend stretching the budget to the 40 inch F6800 model, which offers substantially superior picture quality and is turning out to be the star of the Series 6 range.
