Samsung UE55JU6400 review

 Review: August 2015  
 

Rating: 4 stars

In a nutshell: The Samsung UE55JU6400 is a top value UHD television. It's one of the best value 55-inch screens we've reviewed, and at 55 inches, you really can appreciate the difference that 4K resolution makes. This flat screen mid-range entry in Samsung's 2015 line-up looks like a good bet if you're after a big screen that won't break the bank.

Best buy: Samsung UE55JU6400 from Tesco Direct (£699.00)



 

Summary

With Samsung's UHD (4K) televisions falling in price, it makes sense to supersize your TV, provided you have a room large enough to install it, and pockets deep enough to afford it. The sensible option is the flat-screened JU6400 model, and in its 55-inch form, it really makes 4K worth having.

The UE55JU6400 is a very modern-looking and stylish TV that will add some wow factor to your TV room, even before switching on. There may not be a lot of native 4K content available yet, but it's on its way, and with this TV you'll be future-proofed.

Read our detailed review of the 48-inch UE48JU6400 for more details, but here we'll just say that the picture quality of the TV is superb, with good motion handling, deep blacks, rich colours and plenty of dynamic contrast. The Direct LED backlighting of this model ensures uniform lighting, free of clouding effects. The one issue that does affect this screen is the limited viewing angle, but this is less of a problem with such a large screen.

Just be aware that this is not a 3D TV.

As for other features, audio quality is typical for a mid-range model, connectivity is excellent with built-in Wi-Fi and ethernet, 4 HDMI ports and a Freeview HD tuner included, as well as a host of other options. Samsung's new Smart TV services are also available.

In summary, the Samsung UE55JU6400 provides superb family viewing with the advantage of 4K, and all for a very reasonable price. At just over £1,000 at the time of this review, it's one of the best value 55-inch TVs we've reviewed. We'd recommend it.

The curved JU6500 is another option worth considering.

Whats the difference between the Samsung UE55JU6400 and the Samsung UE55JU6800 models?

Asked by Stevie from UK on 10th Aug 2016
Whats the difference between the Samsung UE55JU6400 and the Samsung UE55JU6800 models? Is it worth the 150 price difference?

Reply by S21 from UK on 10th Aug 2016
There are a few minor differences. The design of the 6800 is more high-end than the 6400, with a brushed metal frame and matching stand. The 55-inch JU6800 has an IPS screen instead of VA - this gives it wider viewing angles compared with the 6400. The 6800 uses nano crystal technology to give the screen a wider colour range.
