Samsung UNB6000

The Good Produces relatively deep black levels; accurate color; very good dejudder processing; sleek styling with 1.2-inch thick panel; extensive picture controls; extremely energy-efficient.

The Bad Expensive; less-uniform screen than other LCDs; poor off-angle viewing; backlight fluctuates with program brightness; dark areas tinged bluer; shiny screen can cause reflections in bright rooms; red frame isn't for everyone.

The Bottom Line Although it delivers fine picture quality, except for a few flaws, the ultrathin Samsung UNB6000 series will appeal mainly to style seekers who don't mind spending more money.

Samsung UNB6000

Editors' note (March 4, 2010): The rating on this product has been lowered because of changes in the competitive marketplace, including the release of 2010 models. The review has not otherwise been modified. Click here for more information.

Whether you're dating a supermodel or shopping for a new HDTV, thin doesn't come cheap. The least expensive member of Samsung's 2009 family of ultrathin LED-backlit LCD TVs is the UNB6000 series, but that doesn't mean it's a bargain. If you can stomach the extra charge, however, your reward will be an extremely sleek-looking TV, a very good-looking picture, and that sweet sense of Begley Jr.-esque self-satisfaction that comes from knowing you're consuming minimal electricity. We're not the biggest fans of the UNB6000's fluctuating backlight, and we'd like to see a more-uniform picture for this much scratch, but otherwise its image quality leaves little to be desired. That said, numerous other HDTVs offer equal or better picture quality for less money, which makes high style and higher technology the main selling points of the UNB6000 series.
