Samsung UE48JU6445 review
|Review: August 2015|
In a nutshell: The 48-inch Samsung UE48JU6445 is almost identical to the JU6400. It's a good UHD TV for family viewing, with excellent picture quality, and Samsung's latest Smart TV system. The design is stylish and practical, with a flat screen rather than a less practical curve. The JU6445 is exclusive to Currys / PC World.
The Samsung UE48JU6445 is identical to the JU6400, except that it has a slightly higher Picture Quality Index (PQI) of 1000 instead of 900. That's because it includes Samsung's PurColour feature, which enables you to access a broader colour spectrum. In practice the difference is hardly noticeable.
The JU6445 has all of the good features that make the JU6400 a good choice for family viewing - UHD (4K) resolution, inky-dark blacks, vivid colours, excellent motion control, Smart TV, a wide range of connectivity options, and a fantastic design.
It's exclusive to Currys / PC World.

Hi - yes it does, plays HDR 4K content from Amazon.
Does the TV have a record freeview function? Does it have built in memory to record?

It should be possible to record to an external USB drive, but this feature can be quite temperamental.
Is this tv bluetooth compatible?

Want a sound bar that I can connect via bluetooth.

Quite happy with the t.v when I bought it 18 months ago but the screen has failed after just a year and a half and Samsung totally not interested, they didn't even bother to respond to my email asking for support. I was told eventually by an authorised agent that I might as well throw the Tv away as it will cost almost as much to replace the screen as buy a new one.
Last Samsung product I will ever buy.

Set the IP address up manually between your BT router and your TV. May be better of using a wired connection.

Bought this having read reviews of many uhd tv's in this price range , now feeling slightly disappointed mainly because of the viewing angles , they really are poor the tv has to be turned towards the viewer as even a slightly off centre seating position really affects the picture quality.
Viewing the screen dead centre gives a decent picture when tuned into hd channels but sd channels look far worse than on my previous hd tv , sd channels really struggle to fill the screen with any clarity.
Uhd content does look good and the smart functions are decent enough , but beware the viewing angles they will affect you if your seating arrangement in your room is spread out!

Got my 48" ju6445 and I'm astounded at how good it is for the price of £699 from Currys.
Great picture, connected to Panasonic hard drive recorder and Sony HT CT660 soundbar.
Internet functions are much quicker than I expected, but not quite at PC speed - better than the hard drive Panasonic DMR-BWT735.
I definitely recommend this TV, so much so that my mum and dad now have one.
