The Bottom Line The Samsung UNES6500 is a well-featured midrange television with good color but otherwise ho-hum picture quality and value. Although it's cheaper than Samsung's ultrathin edge-lit models, the EH6000 series's value proposition is hurt by mediocre picture quality. The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever. The Samsung UNF6400 offers attractive styling and a full complement of features for the price but is outstripped by rivals for performance. The excellent yet expensive Samsung UNF8000 is a tour de force of LED LCD TV design, features, and picture quality.
