9 Reasons For
Samsung Has Excellent Reviews for Its TVs
Mid-size TVs manufactured by Samsung have excellent ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all TVs (not just mid-size TVs) and found that Samsung also has excellent ratings across its entire range.
A Top Selling Television
The UE40K6300 is a popular choice of TV according to Amazon sales data.
Just Released Four Months Ago
This TV has only been on the market for four months.
Good Technical Features
One Samsung UE40K6300 reviewer thought it had good features. David mentioned in his Samsung UE40K6300 review “The controls and features on it were good though”.
Good Smart TV
One Samsung UE40K6300 reviewer who bought it reckoned that it had good apps. Couplands wrote on Amazon in August “It appears that iPlayer, ITVplayer, All4 and Demand 5 are not available and after contacting Samsung they confirm the apps aren't ready”.
The Samsung UE40K6300 is Smart TV, as are most of the other new TVs.
The UE40K6300 has a WiFi connection. Most of the other comparable spec televisions that have been on the market for the last year also have a WiFi connection.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative televisions with a WiFi connection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Sharp LC-49CFE6241 (£423.03), the Samsung UE40KU6000 (£269.00), or the LG 43LH560 (£429.00).
Supports One Image Format
The number of image formats supported by the UE40K6300 is more than most recently released mid-size TVs. This TV supports a JPG image format, which is the most frequently supported image format supported by TVs that are a comparable age to the UE40K6300.
1080p Video Mode
This TV supports a 1080p video mode, which is typical of many TVs that came out around the same time as it.
7 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
Most latest mid-size TVs are not 3D compatible. The Samsung UE40K6300 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
TVs which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the Samsung UE32J6270 which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other similar spec TVs that have been available for the last year, the Samsung UE40K6300 does not have a built-in camera.
Only One RF Input
The Samsung UE40K6300 is a one RF input TV. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been available for around the same time as the UE40K6300 have one RF input.
Only Supports One Audio Format
The number of audio formats supported by the Samsung UE40K6300 is more than most mid-size TVs that came out in the last 12 months. This TV supports an MP3 audio format, which is the most frequently supported audio format supported by comparable spec televisions that came out in the last 12 months.
+4 More reasons against
Does Not Feature OLED Technology
The UE40K6300 does not feature OLED technology, although keep in mind that most of the other mid-size TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the UE40K6300 also do not feature OLED technology.
We compared this TV to all the other TVs with an OLED technology and we think the Philips 43PUH4900 (£246.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Only One RF Port
Most recently released mid-size TVs have one RF port, including the UE40K6300 which has one RF port.
Across all the TVs that were released in the last year the thicknesses range from 7.1mm to 99mm. With a thickness of 89.1 millimeters, the UE40K6300 has a quite thick thickness compared to most of the other newly released mid-size TVs.
If you would consider a TV with a thicker thickness then you might want to look at the H49M2600 (£318.97) (87mm), or the H43M3000 (£504.19) (87mm) both from Hisense or the TCL-Digital F40B3813 (£296.66) (87mm) which also has a higher rating.
