Samsung UE40KU6400 review
|Review: September 2016|
In a nutshell: The Samsung UE40KU6400 is one of the best 40-inch TVs you can get your hands on in 2016. With all the latest features, including 4K and HDR, it's a top performer, with smart looks and Smart TV too. It's priced towards the higher end, but is well worth it.
Best buy: Samsung UE40KU6400 from Hughes (£449.00)
Samsung KU6400 - 2016's biggest-selling TV?
Samsung is shipping a lot of units of its KU6400 model in 2016, and with good reason. Sitting in the middle of Samsung's ever-popular Series 6 TV range, the KU6400 delivers sleek contemporary design and excellent picture quality.
We've already reviewed the 49-inch version of the KU6400 in full detail, and the 40-inch model has all the same features that make the bigger size model such a good buy. That includes Samsung's Tizen Smart TV system, updated again for 2016. The TV looks good with a narrow black and silver bezel surrounding the screen, a metallic bar across the lower edge, and a stylish and practical Calyx quad-stand.
Picture quality is one of the best you'll find on a 40-inch TV, with UHD (4K), HDR, deep blacks, bright highlights and plenty of detail in the mid-range. Movement is smooth, and the only thing missing is 3D.
Note also that while the TV is equipped with 3 HDMI connections, Wi-Fi and ethernet, like most modern TVs it doesn't have a SCART connection, so connecting to old DVD players and set-top boxes might be a problem.
Overall though, this is a top-rated 40-inch TV for 2016.

How do you switch audio channel?
Asked by Chris
on 10th Dec 2016
Films often have multiple language versions and my previous TVs have had an audio button on the remote to switch between languages. There's no such button on this TV and I can't see how to do it. Any ideas?
Does this definitely come with the TM1680A smart remote?

The review for the 49 inch states it comes with a TM1640A remote, I was wondering if the smaller 40 inch TV comes with the TM1680A smart remote?
