Samsung UE55KU6400 review

 Review: June 2016  

Rating: 5 stars

In a nutshell: A 55-inch TV for 1000 is a compelling proposition, and the Samsung UE55KU6400U is probably the best 55-inch telly you can buy for this kind of money. Picture quality is excellent, with 4K and HDR support included, and this is a superb choice for family viewing, with BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, All 4 or My5, and streaming content from Amazon and Netflix all on tap.

55-inch Samsung KU6400 UHD TV Review

At S21, we've predicted that the 49-inch version of the Samsung KU6400 will be the UK's most popular TV in 2016, thanks to its attractive design, generous screen size, superb picture quality, and excellent Smart TV - and, of course, its incredible value for money.

The 55KU6400 is perhaps even better value for money, giving you a massive 55-inch TV for £1000 or less. Read our detailed 49-inch KU6400 review to find out more. The only comment we'd add to this, is that at the 55-inch screen size some motion artifacts can be apparent. But you'd need to upgrade to the significantly more expensive Samsung KS7000 to overcome this limitation.

The 55-inch KU6400 is already selling for less than its £1080 RRP, and we think the price will fall well below £900 by Black Friday / Christmas 2016.

Can you adadapt a scart to a modern tv?

How do you select 4k?

Asked by allan from england on 6th Jan 2017

How well can this TV handle non-HD (SD) TV channels e.g. viewed through Kodi?

Asked by Chris from Malta on 27th Nov 2016
I am not expecting any upscaling of the SD material, but only that it does not break it up and render it too fuzzy which some people have said it might do due to the TV's enhanced resolution. My old HD-ready quality Philips keeps them in great quality, but some people told me that a UHD TV might break up SD viewing so that it is fuzzy or poor picture, due to the set's enhanced resolution.
Would appreciate comments from anyone who has tried it, thank you.

Great TV, purchased for £649 from John Lewis with a 5yr warranty.

Like most newer TV's - the additional soundbar is really must (K551).

Whilst this set can process HDR, I think it is a little misleading since it can't actually show them. My understanding is that the panel does not support HDR. Bit like a radio with one speaker saying it contains stereo technology. For the price it seems great.

Impressed that it is possible to pair bluetooth headphones to the TV and have leave the tv speaker on, helpful for any of the harder hearing who don't want to force everyone else to have the volume blasting.
