Samsung UNH6400 series

The Good The Samsung UNH6400 LED TV is the company's cheapest model to include its fantastic new remote. The TV boasts a sleek minimalist design that's almost all picture. It offers a very capable Smart TV suite with more content than any other manufacturer. Picture quality highlights include accurate color, excellent processing, and a nice bright-room image. Samsung includes two pairs of 3D glasses.

The Bad The remote is still worse overall than a good universal model for controlling multiple devices; lighter black levels and uneven picture uniformity lead to a mediocre home theater image; bad sound quality; Smart TV design can be overwhelming.

The Bottom Line Although it offers pedestrian picture quality for the price, the Samsung UNH6400 has a wonderful remote, a full feature set, and very sleek design.

Classy clicker sets midpriced TV apart

At CNET we often tell people that, to get the best experience out of their TV and related gear, they should invest in universal remote and a dedicated sound system, such as a soundbar. One upside of this strategy is that the remote and speakers included with the TV become irrelevant.

So when I say the Samsung UNH6400 has the best remote of any TV I've ever tested, I don't mean it's worth buying just for the clicker. Don't get me wrong: with its killer combo of superb ergonomics, fun motion control and best-in-class versatility, Samsung's new remote is simply a joy. Especially if you're into using the TV's Web browser or whipping around the menu system to take advantage of its umpteen apps.

And yes, this great new clicker can also command your other gear, including a cable box/DVR. But it still doesn't control and integrate your system as well as something like the $99 Logitech Harmony Smart Control . And if you're like me, remotes on your coffee table are like immortals in Highlander: There can be only one.
