While its picture doesn't overcome the typical disadvantages of edge-lit LED LCDs, the excellent feature set and minimalist style of the Samsung UNC6500 series exhibit plenty of appeal.

David Katzmaier from CNET and this is this -- -- UNZ 6500. Hundred series this is the 46 inch version but this review also piety. 32 story 55. And 65 acres densities. Samsung says they performed very recently despite the difference -- screen sizes. This is Samsung's least expensive LED based LC DT featured the apps platform and get that and a little bit when the other big selling points of this television. Is its thin profile you can see from side here it's -- within about one point two inches deep which is kinda nice you're gonna be lifting the TV you're hanging on the wall but. For normal use sitting in front they're watching you on notice that thinness. One thing you'll -- however is -- thin bezel around the edge here it's little under an inch -- -- all the way around the edges. Little transparent border that extend that a little more about all -- it's one of the slimmest looking most compact TVs we've seen -- One of the slightly strange things -- -- is it stand -- -- it's got four legs sort of Chrome look very unusual stand it. Doesn't necessarily go with the more subtle lack dark -- actually around the edge of the screen it also looks pretty slick -- and TV. Feature rise Samsung did put the apps platform on -- set that allows it to reach out to be in an added. Check out things like Netflix Amazon video on demand and Hulu but one of the big selling features is Hulu plus that it's not available on other manufacturers yet -- will be soon Hulu plus. Allows access for subscribers to whose large database. TV shows and some movies from various networks -- who plus critical -- TV we checked it -- it does work farewell video quality is excellent. And up right the nice alternative to that -- really high cable though you decide to go that route. On the flip side as he does not include -- Wi-Fi built in you have to buy extra dongle if you want wireless streaming that can be run ethernet cable to the back of its TV. You will get plenty of connectivity speed connectivity to -- does have a four total HDMI inputs one component video input. And -- PC input that's out pretty sparse except for the HDMI but. You can't see that he does have a pretty slim back and there's really not all -- much room for. A lot of different kind of inputs back there are two USB ports however of one of those can be used for the -- worry Nazis and the stream. Videos and music can also stream and those kind of things for over your home network. The picture quality -- the Samsung UNC 6500 with similar to a lot of the other edge lit LEDs we've seen which. Means it's black levels are pretty good not quite as good some -- local dimming or plasma TVs we've tested. Also has relatively accurate color -- one of the big issues that was the uniform you picture the edge of the screen a little brighter there also some slightly brighter spots especially in the corners so. All told you can't expect the the very best picture quality he that it is pretty solid it also does 1080 24 correctly this -- settings for video processing but. Don't expect to see much benefit from -- 120 -- I refresh rate we did like a billion ever to play around the -- or dejudder fact a lot more than. On other TVs available screen also is a relatively -- -- we have a really bright room you might notice some reflections on that -- -- does preserve black holes relatively well -- room.
