      Affordable 4k HDR that performs well

      For the price, this TV is perfect. It gives you access to 4K HDR content, and like all other 2017 samsung tvs supports the newer HDR10+ standard (currently only available from Amazon Prime Streaming). I picked this up open box for 400, couldn't pass it up. Performance The brightness, color saturation, and color accuracy are all very good on this TV, IF you calibrate it correctly. Set your color temperature to warm 2, turn off all of the nonsense settings like contrast enhancer and MR 120, that's just introducing more noise into the signal that you do not need. The only real shortcomings with this display are as follows. The viewing angle on this TV isn't particularly good. The further off angle you are sitting, think off center, the worse the image becomes. This is not an OLED display, so off angle viewing means colors get washed out and the image brightens in a very disappointing way. Some tvs have better viewing angles than this one but it's not horrible for the price. The grey balance on this tv isn't the best. There are hotspots, think darker areas of the screen where a solid single-toned grey image will darken. This has to do with any number of factors including backlight performance and variations in the LCD panel itself. It's not terrible, and it will vary from set to set, but if you're very sensitive to this sort of thing maybe keep saving up for an OLED display. Those two caveats aside this set performs very well. Native 4k content (HDR and regular) look outstanding coming from both a streaming service and 4k disc. Sadly 1080p content from broadcast looks sort of terrible. This is partially due to the fact that broadcast 1080p isn't great to begin with, but also partially a shortcoming of the scaler in this TV. The sad fact is that no new TVs have decent 1080p upscaling anymore. It's just not a feature manufacturers care about. In fact they'd prefer that 1080p content look as bad as possible so that they can push you further into a 4k ecosystem. Until broadcasters catch up, this will be disappointing. All of the built-in apps I've used have worked flawlessly. Netflix, Prime, Hulu, YouTube, HBOGO, Vudu, Starz all run perfectly. I don't really have anything else to add except that watching Netflix and Prime in 4k HDR makes me resent everyone else that's streaming exclusively in 1080p. Savages ... The interface is fairly well thought out on this tv, but you have to go into the general settings in order to enable HDR color. This is crazy as this setting should be under the picture controls like everything else. If you don't turn this on, you won't be getting the full HDR experience. AND it has to be enabled on every input that's carrying an HDR signal. Weird choice samsung. The build quality of this TV is pretty standard. It's very slim and lightweight. The bezel around the panel is very slim as well but it's plastic that has this faux brushed aluminum finish that just feels chintzy. It's highly reflective and I'd much rather it had a matte black bezel instead. The stand is average as well, it's the industry standard V-shaped stand that's been commonplace for the past few years. On a set this size I would have preferred individual feet at the edges of the display for added stability. While not heavy the way the stand connects at the center bottom point of the TV means the set has a fair amount of wobble to it. It just feels more precarious than I'd like. Mounting is always of course an option but that's more invasive and permanent than I'd like. This set has a decent number of inputs but nothing extraordinary. You're going to find it increasingly difficult to connect older devices to modern TVs and this is reflected in the lack of older inputs here. This only has 3 HDMI inputs which in 2017 isn't enough. Even the highest end TVs that cost thousands more than this have only 4, I'll never understand this. It's very common for people to have a sat/cable box, blu-ray player, gaming console(s), and streaming box connected at the same time. 3 HDMI inputs simply aren't enough. I'd really like to see this terrible industry trend change. Overall I'd say this is an excellent set. The features and performance you're getting at this price point are very tough to beat. If you can find a flash sale or buy one open box (in new condition) I'd recommend it. Best Buy offers service plans on all open box items and they are worth it. I was very lucky to find this for 399 open box in completely perfect condition. The set still had some of the original packing on it when I picked it up. Get it if you can, the cheaper the better.

      I used to own a LG 1080p 47" tv, but after upgrading to this Samsung 55" 4K TV I am SUPER happy. But before I go on, when you click on Specifications and where it says High Dynamic Range and it says No, that is dead WRONG. I have this EXACT model and it DOES have HDR. its in the Settings under Picture and then under Expert Settings you have to scroll down a bit and you will see where it will say HDR+ Mode and you have the option to turn it on or off depending on source of what youre currently watching. So Best Buy's website is WRONG when it says it doesn't have HDR when it indeed DOES have it. In FACT, I have a PS4, no not the Pro, I also have a Xbox One S, again not the One X and on my PS4 when I played Uncharted 4 or The Last of Us: Remastered or even Horizon Zero Dawn, id either get a message that popped up saying something like "your tv supports HDR would you like to enable it" or id have to go into the games visual display settings or display settings and turn it on. And my God do the games look amazing. And the cool thing also, is that since this is a UDH (4K) you can turn on UDH on ALL the HDMI ports. Which is awesome. And theres a LOT of settings and things to fiddle around with to figure out what works best with whatever youre watching. And knowing this is a Smart TV to boot along side its dual wifi internet settings or Lan cable if you prefer, I love being able to watch Netflix and watch 4K videos on YouTube cuz this tv also has those apps. Also this tv turns on SUPER fast and turns off fast which is awesome. And I also love how theres three sound options to choose from: "Standard" which sounds VERY flat and muffled. "Optimized" which is what I love and prefer sounds like surround sound almost. And then theres "Amplify" which I think amplifies the voices I'm not sure. ANYWAYS its an amazing tv and an awesome Smart TV and I did a little review of the tv on my YouTube channel GTX970 with the title Samsung 55" 4k TV W/HDR (my little review). Feel free to ask whatever you want about tv if you aren't sure about something. Hope this review helps. Such an awesome purchase and the colors are beautiful. Worth every penny spent.

      Most Excellent TV in this Price Range

      Posted

      This is a high quality, entry level 4k TV set, just what you'd expect from Samsung. I just watch Cable TV, and do not stream media that much, just occasional Netflix movie.. Currently, there is no 4K content on Cable or OTA TV, at least from my research, but I bought the 4K because it was only $50 more, and I figure the extra $50 is worth it, cause maybe there will be 4k cable in the future. Basically, this is a good TV, if you just want to watch TV on cable or OTA. If you want to stream 4K Netflix, Hulu or buy High Resolution discs, maybe you might want to get something with HDR, and pay at least $200 to $300 more, but otherwise, this TV will meet all your needs. This TV only has the basic remote and no Bluetooth, but I don't need either of those. My friends Samsung remote, for a 60 inch, upper echelon TV he purchased 2 years ago for $1,700, drove me nuts trying to use it anyway. Picture and colors are Great, and the sound is very good, much better than a basic Samsung TV I bought 3 years ago. 55 inches is the perfect size if you are wanting to go into that transitional size of medium to large TV- its pretty big, but yet not massive. I'd say this TV is good for viewing up to 10 to 11 feet away, if further away, you might want to go bigger. But the deals aren't as good this Holiday season on Samsung TVs above 55 inches. TV technology is changing somewhat rapidly, and because I'm a basic TV watcher, my strategy has been to buy an entry level TV as a GREAT price every 3 years, rather than dropping $1,500 + on a top of the line model of the day, that I will feel like I have to keep for a decade because of the massive investment.

      Overall, this is a fantastic television. I've lived on my own for years but the only televisions I've owned were given to me as gifts, as they were no longer wanted by their previous owners in my family. This is the first television I bought for myself, and I only had two requirements: fantastic quality, and something large enough to see without wearing my glasses. This TV meets those requirements spectacularly! There is only one problem, which may be a total dealbreaker for some, so be warned. This TV regularly disconnects itself from the internet for no reason-- ugh! It's not a big deal, but it happens every other day at least, sometimes multiple times a day; my modem is all hooked up, all my other devices are connected without a hitch, but the television shows an error: no internet connection! It's quick & easy to fix, but such an unnecessary problem-- and if my father had bought this television, I daresay he'd have some difficulty figuring out how to fix the error. While it's inconvenient to have to play with the settings to fix an internet connection that has no reason to be disconnected, the overall quality of the TV is pretty exceptional. The picture is beautiful, the sound is fantastic (I've rarely put it above 50% volume and it's plenty loud for someone hard of hearing like myself). This is an excellent TV, just don't be surprised if it's not inclined to stay connected to your internet... which is pretty silly when that's such a huge aspect of functioning for this TV.

      I bought this TV on Black Friday which seemingly is the same time most people did. I was hesitant on purchasing this TV, but in the end I am glad I did. I have had Samsung TV's in the past and expected it to be a pretty decent TV. For the price, this TV hits a home run! Setup was fast and pretty straight forward. The TV smart features are pretty good and I did initially stream a movie on the Netflix native app at 4K resolution with no hiccups. However Samsung doesn't provide a few of the apps that Roku and Apple Tv do on their platforms. Because of this (we are cord cutters) I found myself looking to upgrade our Apple TV4 to take advantage of the 4K capabilities of the TV. Not a fault with this particular TV, just a serious void was missing for us. Because of that I had to budget an additional $200. I understand this is completely personal preference but I just want to put that out there for anyone use to Roku or Apple. Samsung does carry the major streaming apps so maybe the majority of people will be fine with the few missing. I did get the added benefit of my purchased movies being upgraded to 4K with my Apple TV purchase. All in all great TV with good capabilities. I guess the only downside is only 3 hdmi inputs. Not a serious gripe as I realize you cant have it all for under $500. As far as the remote, I think it serves its purpose. We use Harmony remotes in our home, so that duty went to my Harmony Hub. However I did use the original remote the first day or so while setting up. If you have HDMI-CEC enabled devices, the TV remote will control them.

      Almost the same as the 6300

      I bought this as a doorbuster a week ahead of the actual Black Friday. This is one of the models that Samsung manufactures in big quantities ahead of the holidays - they are generally very similar to one of their regular models, minus a few features. As far as I can tell, the only differences between this and the regular MU6300 model are that the 6290 has a more basic remote control, and it is not Bluetooth-ready. Otherwise it appears to be the same TV. That said, I have no idea what else they might have skimped on inside the machine, but everything looks good to me. If you can live without a fancy remote and bluetooth, then you might as well save yourself $100 while you can. I gave it 4 stars because it has no analog audio output for my old hi-fi system. Converter is around 10 bucks, not a big deal. It also failed to find any local channels, of which there are 4 that other TVs find just fine with my antenna.

      I love Black Friday! I purchased my TV on Sunday, 11-19-2017 and it was delivered on 11-22-2017. This set is very easy to set up, having had a similar 1080 P model from Samsung. The picture is incredibly good and I have never touched the advanced settings. The apps work very fast with no "warmup" time. Netflix, VUDU and Hulu are ones I use. After an hour or two, I was flying around the remote. It is not the cheapest TV, but has features like the 120 HZ refresh rate and upscaling of non-UHD broadcasts. Chromecast works great with it, too. I watched an old, old episode of Star Trek on CBS All Access to test it. Worked perfectly. Football is just super. This TV is a really good deal. Also, the delivery people from Best Buy did a fabulous job and even unboxed the set for me. I am 69 years old and would not have been able to lift the set by myself. Thanks very much, Best Buy.

      Replaced my 50 inch plasma with this 55 inch smart 4K UHD. TV was easy to set up and worked well right out of the box. It takes only a little more space than the smaller 50inch because of the very narrow frame. TV is heavier than you would think. These LED are supposed to b light but not the bigger ones. The picture quality is very good. Not a big difference from the plasma. It’s actually not quite as sharp. The adjustments are a bit confusing, options like dynamic picture control, HDR, and so forth don’t have much explanation of how they work or what to expect. I will have another project for the to do list to search the internet and manual for optimal settings for best picture viewing. Smart TV works good and we gained access to Amazon movies which we lacked through our old system. Overall working good and paired up easily with our cable connection and existing sound bar. Working well. The one star ding is for complexity of settings and very little explanation of how to optimize all the new features. For $500 it’s the best price I’ve seen including Wal-Mart and Amazon but the Best Buy sales guy had to say it has some inferior parts because it is a “holiday special”. Not a good sales feature. One review said only the remote is downgraded.
