Over recent years, advances in technology have allowed televisions to offer larger screen sizes while most of the other components have become smaller, producing much slimmer designs with flat screens.
The Samsung UN40C6300 takes the meaning of the word ‘flat’ to a whole new level thanks to the fact that it is an LED TV which measures just 1.2 inches thick and promises big things for the future.
Image quality is of paramount importance to many people, particularly sports fans and movie buffs, so the processing credentials of the Samsung UN40C6300 are worth covering without delay.
120Hz refresh produces blur free images
As you may be aware when things get particularly busy onscreen, during an action sequence or a hectic bit of movement, on lesser TVs you might experience blurring and ghosting which can really spoil your enjoyment.
Samsung has made sure that this does not happen by including Auto Motion Plus 120Hz technology. This means that this Samsung LED TV will refresh the image more frequently than the source which it is displaying all the while stitching frames together by inserting its own frames created by analysing those that came before and resulting in a consistently smooth onscreen image.
Outstanding color reproduction plus deep blacks
Contrast ratio is another important aspect of any HDTV’s performance and the Samsung UN40C6300 has a Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio of four million to one.
In layman’s terms this means that the distinction between the bright and dark areas of an onscreen image will be crisper and clearer than in less capable models, which means movies will look natural and just as the director intended.
Colors also benefit from this impressive contrast ratio, so you will be able to enjoy pure hues that are unaffected by those which surround them.
Plenty of connections on the UN40C6300
You will definitely want to make the most of the Samsung UN40C6300 40 inch display and native 1080p full HD resolution by connecting as many HD devices as possible.
There are 4 HDMI inputs for this very purpose and you can plug in a PC or laptop through the D-Sub input, which comes complete with its own audio input.
The presence of two USB 2.0 ports is welcome, allowing you to plug in a memory stick and then access its stored still images and video in your living room.
While the built in speakers will provide ample audio support, you might have your own hi-fi or home cinema system to use in unison with your Samsung UN40C6300, so the availability of the optical digital audio output will benefit those with the right technology.
Power saving features galore
Energy efficiency is a direct attribute of LED technology, which means the Samsung UN40C6300 will consume less electricity and leave less of a carbon footprint than older TVs, making it an ideal upgrade route.
Samsung has made sure that there are other power saving features onboard to minimise wasteful consumption and the smart light sensor is just one of these.
When you have it active it will detect the level of ambient light in the surrounding room and then automatically reduce or increase the intensity of the backlight.
In sunny conditions when the display will be harder to see the brightness will be ramped up, while when the lights are down it will be reduced.
The Samsung UN40C6300 is a good-looking, highly capable HD LED TV with impressive imaging technology onboard and plenty of flexible features.
