Samsung MU6500

Overview

This is a Samsung mid-range television, which was released to the market in 2017. I was able to get hold of a product and I’m quite interested with what’s offered by it. The television is not in a position to compete with the Quantum Dot LED televisions that are available in the market. However, it can still generate brighter images when compared to the average picture quality offered by most of the televisions. In addition, I was able to experience a down scaled version of HDR from this television.

The conversion of standard definition and lower HD images into 4K is done pretty good in this television. It is quite surprising to find such upscaling capabilities in a television, which is marked at a mid-range price tag. The color and contrast ratio looks really good when you take a look at the screen from center and front. However, it is not a product that has been manufactured for viewing from side. As a result, the image quality can reduces when I took a look at the screen from side.

The smart features that are offered by this television are solid. There’s nothing much to complain about the black uniformity as well. I was able to use the smart features of this television without going through any frustration because of the user friendly on-screen menu. This television also offers a decent look and it fitted perfectly well into my modern living space.

Design

Samsung MU6500

Samsung MU6500 has a decent design. You will be able to find a black colored border, which has a depth of 0.5 inches. This creates an ideal set up for the curved screen offered by the television. The bezel design and framing of the television does not offer an expensive look. However, you can think about placing it in your living room without keeping any doubts in your mind. The television has also been provided with a Y shaped stand, which matches perfectly well with the look of it.
