No regrets over buying this tv. My only slight regret is that i should have maybe bought the 37 inch model instead of the 32 inch model. The set looks great in the room. Ultra slim and modern with a nice stand. Internet works fine and connected to my wireless router without any problems. Watched a few youtube videos on the tv which worked fine. Not got around to checking out the 3d yet. Still need to buy some glasses. The epg is easy to navigate and quite nifty to use. Very satisfied with this purchase and very quick delivery from amazon.
Samsung ue40es6300 3d full hd 1080p smart 3d led tv with wi-fi built-in. The picture settings for this tv are awkward to set up and it was hard to find out a way to reset the tv fully, in order to get rid of network settings. For those of you still unable to find out how to do this, all you need do is put the tv on standby and then push these buttons in order on the remote: ‘info, menu, mute, power’ the tv will then turn itself on and display a menu. The 3d is decent enough, and unlike passive 3d seen in the lg 2012 tv’s the active 3d that this samsung tv has, outputs a full 3d hd image. However, the supplied active glasses flicker on and off on each eye to create the 3d effect. This can be fatiguing for ones eyes, whereas with the passive 3d technology eye fatigue is significantly less. Only 3 x hdmi ports on the tv, i think if you use your tv a lot you may want one with at least 4 hdmi ports fitted. There as a scart socket in the back of this tv, so if you have any machines that still use this connection, (such as a vcr) you won’t need to purchase any additional accessories. The smart tv feature is a little sluggish. The similar 2012 lg 3d smart tv’s features were more responsive.

I bought this tv after doing a lot of research. I even got a subscription to which?. So that i could have a look at their consumer reviews. At the time of this being written (sept 2012) there seems to be a consensus among technology reviewers that samsung are making the best tvs at the moment. The es6300 seems to back up this viewpoint. Firstly, the screen quality is outstanding. To be honest, at this price bracket there is probably little difference between the top makers (sony, panasonic etc). I have spent a long time walking through john lewis, currys and comet looking at the different tvs and there has never been any that i’ve thought ‘thats awful’.(and really tvs in demo mode, under shop lights in a row with 20 other tvs are never going to replicate what its like in your home).
Excellent amazon service – one problem with tv. . This is my second samsung led flatscreen and i have been very impressed with both. This one in particular has a great picture, decent sound (although i mostly listen via an av-receiver), good 3d and internet access. The built in hd freesat and hd freeview are a bonus too. After writing the above 5* review some small parallel vertical lines appeared on the screen, over the following days they multiplied and grew from a couple of centimetres long to almost the length of the screen. You can even see them when the tv is switched off. Amazon are sending another one.
Great tv, but a few kinks samsung need to work out. Tv is absolutely superb, 3d features a perfect, watched 1080p + 3d avatar and transformers: dark of the moon and loved it, just don’t get your hopes up about the ‘2d to 3d’ feature as the 3d effect is barely noticeable and takes forever for the tv to adjust the effect to what’s on the screen, but as soon as the scene on the tv changes, it resets and has to ‘adjust’ again so you spend more time with the screen ‘adjusting’ the 3d while content is playing in 2d then it actually being in 3d. Freeview on the tv is great, the superb tv guide app is never lagging behind and the ability to connect a portable hard drive and turn it into a dvr is great, not sure if the tv has dual tuners to record and watch thoughunfortunately i have had many problems with the ‘allshare’ app on the tv which controls the tv’s access to dlna servers. Working with tversity is very unreliable, can be watching a video clip, and it just randomly disconnects from the server. Also it only lets you ‘play’ content you do not seem to be able to fast-forward or rewind. It seems that the ‘allshare’ tv app is only good while working with samsung’s ‘allshare’ server software even then, you are only allowed to skip forward or backward 10 seconds or a minute at a time, no smooth scanning. Although if you connect a hard drive or usb memory stick you do get to scan through videos (very strange. )also selecting through the menus is kind of slow, if you hold down the down button to go through a list of videos, it takes about a second for the selector to work its way through, bit annoying after a while. I still use my xbox 360 as the media player.
Samsung UE40ES6300 3D Full HD 1080p Smart 3D LED TV with Wi-Fi built-in and Freeview HD (New for 2012) : This model is the smallest in the samsung 3d smart tv range but is still a perfect size for the average lounge. We have all been around friends and family where the tv overpowers the room. Because of its size it is , obviously , cheaper. You will need to purchase samsung 3d glasses seperately (they come with the bigger screen options}. They are a worthwhile purchase if you intend to use the 3d effects even on this relatively small screen. My wife and i are still (2 months on) discovering new programmes built into this tv. Would have been quicker if i had left my wife to it lol. This is not a simple tv but can do all of the basics easily while learning the other features.
