Samsung UE55MU6400 review

 Review: June 2017  

Rating: 5 stars

In a nutshell: We're very excited by the Samsung UE55MU6400. It's one of the best value 55-inch TVs we've ever seen, giving everything that most users will want from a big screen, for well under 1,000. For that money you get a premium-look TV with 4K HDR, superb Smart TV and excellent connectivity. It's a bargain!

Today's best buy: Samsung UE55MU6400 from Debenhams Plus (£680.00)


MU6400 - A super-value big TV

In 2017 there's a fair likelihood that the Samsung MU6400 will turn out to be the UK's bestselling 55-inch TV. Samsung TVs are as popular as ever, and the MU6400 is positioned just at the sweet spot where it will appeal to the most buyers.

Already the price has dropped to around £900 from major retailers, and it could go even lower in time for Black Friday 2017. That's astonishingly good value for a 55-inch screen, and especially one as good as this.

For your money, you get a very stylish television with a slim metal frame and practical Y-stand making it look better than many models costing a lot more. The One Remote Control lets you control all your Samsung AV devices with a single controller, and the TV connects well with other devices including phones and tablets. Picture quality is very good, with 4K HDR available to take advantage of the latest content on Netflix and Amazon Instant Video. Like most Samsung televisions, the screen is punchy, with active crystal colour giving it impressively rich and bright images and lots of shadow detail.

Samsung's 2017 Smart TV is superb, with Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube, and catch-up services from the BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, and My5. Online gaming is also available.

You'd need to spend a lot more to move up to the superior Samsung MU7000, and for most families there's just no need to. Read our detailed review of the 49-inch version of the Samsung MU6400 to find out more.

You'll need to look at the MU7000 or higher for 10-bit colour.

Reply by John from Uk on 6th Nov 2017
This does support 10 bit colour ! As I have it on mine with my Sky Q 👍

Which UE55 KU or MU?

Asked by Robin from Uk on 2nd Jul 2017
Which Samsung should I get ue55ku6400 or mu6400?

Reply by S21 from UK on 2nd Jul 2017
There are some very good end-of-line deals that make the KU6400 very attractive.

Reply by Robin from Uk on 4th Jul 2017
Thanks S21

Which is the best option KU or MU
Your reviews have steered me in this direction but can't decide which.

Will the KU not be much different to the MU.

Reply by S21 from Uk on 4th Jul 2017
There's very little difference between them.

Reply by Robin from Uk on 4th Jul 2017
So you'd recommend prob going for the ku6400? Cheaper option.

Reply by S21 from UK on 4th Jul 2017
If they were priced the same, we'd pick the newer MU6400. If you can find last year's KU6400 at a discount, then it might well be worth choosing the older model and saving some money. End of line models sometimes offer significant savings.

Fantastic tv ! UHD is sharp and so lifelike it's like being there. The menus are lightning fast and intuitive. HDR is amazing with bright light blinding you and the deepest blacks.
I use Sky Q and the UHD IS SUPER IMPRESSIVE!! Also up scaled hd is near UHD Quality. I also have my Marantz amp plugged in via Optical and you can select DTS or Dolby Digital in tv sound output. 5/5 Outstanding 👍
