Samsung MU6400 65-Inch SMART Ultra HD TV – Love this TV very much

This is a great tv – good on terrestrial tv and internet services.

. Had issues yesterday initially with the screen going black every few minutes, but fixed this buy purchase in a new 4k hdmi lead.

This tv replaced a pin dot curved 4k tv that went back for light bleed issues. I picked this up on prime day for a fantastic price and the bleed is a lot less (not perfect but for the price it’s fine). The tv itself is superb, the smart functions on the 2017 models are a cut above and they seem smoother than the 9000 2016 model it replaced. The revamped 2017 remote is also a lot better than the 2016. It has a better weight and the button press is a lot nicer. The picture quality from all sources is lovely and the sound is as good as you’ll get from this sort of tv. It is one hdmi short of being perfect for me but i’m giving it 5 stars for my prime day bargain.

Great set, value for money is awesome. Not close to a oled in terms of black picture quality and there is some light leak out of the box, but overall for the money it is perfect for casual netflixing and gaming on an xbox. Will keep for as long as it runs, but going oled next.

Great picture, crystal clear. Very easy to set up – worked with sky hd and xbox straightaway. Worth fiddling with the sound settings a little and a sound bar is probably going to be better for movies but the optimised setting is good. Extremely pleased with purchase.

Bright picture and great functionality especially the built in apps like amazon. Have now ordered a second one as so pleased.

There is so much jargon and misinformation written about tvs that i thought i should write a review to help people make an informed choice when purchasing a tv. Here is what to look for and why. I will centre my review around picture quality. Debating the sound quality of inbuilt tv speakers which are about one inch thick is like discussing whether you would rather be punched by mike tyson or george foreman. Both are going to be unpleasant so what is the point?if you are interested in sound quality, connect your tv to your hifi system via the tv’s optical output. If your hifi does not accept digital inputs then purchase a fiio d03k dac from amazon for £22. You won’t get a better dac for less than £100. If you can’t connect your hifi to your tv, then purchase a sound bar from a decent hifi brand such as q acoustics or better still active speakers such as the q acoustics bt3’s or ruark mr1s. Also, i won’t waste time describing the smart features of a tv when you can buy an amazon fire stick with alexa voice control for £25 in the sales. It is comfortably the fastest, most intuitive, most comprehensive smart interface widely available and it comes with voice activation and alexa.

The item went ‘missing’ on its way to me so i bought elsewhere in the end. However i am very pleased with this tv. The picture looks great when viewing hd content, especially on a blu-ray as it up-scales too. The smart tv interface is great too.It uses web os so it nice and quick to navigate through the various menus. All the usual apps & on-demand services are available, netflix, bbc iplayer, itv, channel 4, 5, youtube etc. The tv also works well with my sony surround sound system, detecting devices connected to it and out putting the tv sound through it as well. At this price point you wont be disappointed.

Only had tv for a few days but blown away by the picture quality for the price excellent tv.

Great tv picture quality is brilliant.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

Excellent product and good value. It was pretty much “plug and play”. We are not critical viewers but we enjoy the bright colours and it looks wonderful in hdtv. We would recommended this tv.

The tv is well packaged and easy to set up. It looks great and performs extremely well. I can only highly recommend this company and product.

In the context of a sub-£500 tv, this is a very, very good product. However, due to the few cons i cannot justify five stars. Firstly, the picture quality: stunning. It did require a little adjustment as the factory settings are designed to wow the viewer (shopper). I reduced the overall colour a little to stop the reds and blues being too loud, and switched the colour temperature to neutral. I also switched the contrast enhancement from ‘high’ to ‘low’ which brought all the detail into the picture and calmed everything down very naturally. I also checked out the hdr function, but honestly with this tv the image is better with it turned off; as with the contrast enhancement, it gives an exaggerated contrast at the expense of detail, and also significantly softens the image. This is one of the few indications that it is not a more expensive ‘local dimming’ tv, and is to be expected. Once the picture adjustments are sorted, prepare to be blown away, as the image of a good quality 2160p source really is like looking through a window.It’s absolutely uncannily realistic.

See impressive brightness, shadow detail and authentic colour.

Delivered quickly & works well.

Picture quality is fantastic and also the sound quality is brilliant.

Decent smart colour tv from the samsung range which is always good and reliable.

Excellent picture and good for sport. A very smart tv which is easy to set up and at a sensible price.

Experience Certified Ultra HD for true colour and clarity.

Amazing tv features and beautiful 4k quality.

Good tv, picture is a bit hard to see during bright days.

Superb picture quality, easy to set up and operate. Voice command device is brilliant.

Control all of your compatible devices and content with the One Remote Control.

I found the tv easy to setup also easy to navigate through the programming,and i admit i am not the best with technology.

I hate leaving a 3-star review for this tv but that, unfortunately, is all i can give it. Value for money is excellent, and picture quality is fantastic. The operating system’s smart features are brilliant and quick – so why the loss of 2 stars?. Basically this tv is very poorly manufactured in my opinion. The main thing i purchased this for (apart from the obvious watching tv) was for watching streaming movies and for gaming. Gaming-wise i was stumped for a while because what samsung don’t tell you (unless of course this was a fault) is that not all of the hdmi inputs support hdr – i was scratching my head for a while until i realised that i needed to swap the inputs to another port. Since this tv only has 3 hdmi inputs that pretty much limits you to two hdr input sources – pretty poor i think. Anyway, the major issue i had was that the edge backlight has terrible light bleeding along the bottom edge. I received this tv from one supplier, and it was like mini torches being shined at the bottom of the screen so i had to return it and get a replacement. The replacement is better in that the bleeding is much less pronounced, but it’s still there and if anything it’s more patchy than the first.

  2. Excellent picture and sound, easy to set up, the remote doesn’t always understand what voice commands you give it, i have an 8 series as well and i can’t see much difference between the two, overall for the price, brilliant.

    Highly recommended tv for this price. If you want a decent tv with the best specs and quality at this price range, go for it without second thought. Have seen many brands like sony, toshiba, panasonic before buying at the showroom but this was one of the best. Also comes with a universal remote that is quiet handy at times when you need to connect multiple devices.

    1. We already had one of these tvs but weren’t able to buy another from our preferred vendor, richer sounds, as they are last years model. As such, we had to look elsewhere and found the same tv available on amazon. Unfortunately, unlike richer sounds who offer a six year warranty included in the price of the tv, whilst still offering to price match, there was only a one year warranty available from amazon, unless you pay another £85 or so. However, rather than buy this years model from richer sounds, which we didn’t like the look of, because the tv is so good, we still opted to buy this one from amazon. In terms of the tv, the picture is great, i like the alternative remote, which will also control the samsung soundbar that i ended up buying at the same time, and the sound is surprisingly good, so if you don’t have the budget for a soundbar, you’ll be pleasantly surprised how good the sound is from the tv itself. All in all, this is a great tv, albeit last years model.

  9. Picture is crisp and clear though i have noticed that it depends on your viewing angle. For the price you can’t go wrong.

    1. + colour+ 4k gaming+ price-/+ design-/+ ok for gaming, not so for tv, each channel would have different skin tones that require adjusting- the reflection glare is unbearable and much much worse than older samsung model i had- menu options also degraded in comparison with older model, much more limited and having to go into settings to link the hdr mode is simply ridiculous- very tricky to adjust to right colour, contrast etc- as many complain light bleed is an issue, i have just small, half cup sized circle so consider myself lucky- brighness on this tv is poor, very poor, in a sunny day along with wall reflection glare can barely see any detail.

    1. What a tv, blew me away setting it up, loved to watch it on day 1, but day 2, would not turn on for some reason, like seriously samsung, one little thing wrong that almost makes the tv un usable, the power cable fell out, what sort of design is that. It is now held in with some tape but i do no think that is enough, only time will tell, so one star off for that.

  13. Thank you amazon, for waiving the fees for me and delivering this product quickly. It’s a fantastic smart tv, good for netflix, youtube etc don’t forget to connect it to the 5ghz wi-fi band for ultimate and superior performance. You can download an app called smarthings and control the tv from your phone or tablet remotely.

    Extremely happy with my purchase. Display is sharp; you even notice the difference when watching older, pre-hd tv programmes. Setup is easy, smart function is very easy to use too. Having read lots of reviews and noting other buyers experiences with the tv arriving with, or developing faults, i took the additional two-year warranty, just in case; but so far, so good.

      1. I have the larger version in my living room so when i was looking for one for my bedroom i knew exactly what i wanted. Picture and ease of use is great but as my bedroom isn’t the biggest i can’t comment on its sound in a larger room but it’s good enough for what i want, seems to go very loud if needed.

    1. Wonderful television that far exceeded my expectations for use in a bedroom. The picture quality is fantastic, the universal remote controls my playstation 4 pro, xbox one x and apple tv perfectly and saves me from faffing around with multiple remotes. The greatest part of the tv is the ability to customise the ‘smartness’ of the tv, as someone with other devices to use for apps i appreciate that i am able to turn of all the smart features like wi-fi, apps, recommendations, voice-controls and all that, i really appreciate that freedom with a tv. For a privacy heads-up i recommended owners to dive into the terms & policy section of support and untick advertisements and viewing information services for a better experience. The low latency on game mode is also brilliant for all sorts of video games. The tv does not require much tuning out of the box in terms of picture quality, but the standards still apply: set sharpness to 0, turn off contrast enhancer, digital clean view, film mode and all that for the truest experience. Sound is also surprisingly impressive for such a little thing and i would be comfortable even without a soundbar. Performance is very snappy for a tv for navigating menus, i can’t comment for the in-app experience because as mentioned i’m using it as a ‘dumb tv’. One last note: if you want 4k hdr for your consoles, turn off all eco settings, and manually turn on hdmi uhd colour for each hdmi source under ‘external device manager’ in settings. In short – this is easily one of the best 40-inch tvs in its price range, and i would happily recommend it to anybody.

    Bought as an “open box” item but it seems new, nothing missing etc. Setup can take awhile, putting the stand together, plugging everything in. I found colours a bit lurid on “dynamic” – prefer watching live sport on “standard” mode. Smart tv means it has iplayer, itv hub etc – you have to log-in for these – also amazon prime, netflix etc – again log-in/subscription required. I have plugged in a lan cable – tv to 4-port switch – which may help with online services, also bbc “4k” test shows – such as world cup. Tv found my network hard drive all by itself and will play movies off this – which i hadn’t expected, nice bonus. One remote control works ok, will also deal with sky hd box and ps3 via tv. My main reason for buying this tv was to upgrade a 10-year old “own brand” set and to reduce remote controls – ie sound bar. So far (3-days) it has done all these and more besides – bluetooth and network capabilities are real, useful bonuses for me. Oh, and it runs much cooler than the old tv.

    I didn’t buy the tv from here, i got a longer guarantee from a competitor and slightly cheaper. For the money, the tv is exceptional, it replaced an old samsung flatscreen and as with the majority of samsung tv’s, it doesn’t disappoint. Easy to set up, easy to use and a first class picture. I paid the extra £2 per month to netflix to watch ultra hd and it’s sensational for those programmes in uhd mode. A great buy and i would recommend without hesitation.

    1. Perfect for those of us who have neither the space nor the capacity for the 49″ smart tv. Intuitive and easy to use and optimise.

  26. I upgraded from an oldish 32″ samsung tv, and was a bit concerned that this would be too big, but the unit size wasn’t actually much bigger as the previous set had a large frame around it. I should probably point out that i’m no tv expert and i just wanted a larger clearer screen with all apps included. I unpacked and set this up myself, although it may have been easier with two people. The picture quality is great, really clear. I don’t feel the need for a sound bar but you can add one if you must. I have attached mine to my humax pvr so i record stuff and it works fine. It’s good to have iplayer, amazon prime, now tv, netflix, youtube etc without the associated boxes and plug ins. The only issue is that the stand is fixed and won’t swivel on the stand like my previous samsung tv, which is annoying but not a deal breaker. So all in all, its a great tv for general usage, and at a great price.
