The UE55H6500 does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other TVs of a similar age and spec to this television also do not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering other televisions which also have a built-in camera including the UN55ES8000F, the UE55F8000AT, or the ES8000 all from Samsung.

Average High Frequency Rate

With a high frequency rate of 400 hertz, the UE55H6500 has a pretty average high frequency rate compared to most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been on the market for a similar time to this TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 400Hz refresh rate televisions and we think because of their better review scores, the UE55H6410 (£794.99), the UE75H6400, and the UE65H6400 all from Samsung are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a faster high frequency rate then you might want to look at the UE55H6670 (600Hz and higher rated), or the UE85HU7590 (1,000Hz and higher rated) both from Samsung or the LG 60PB690 (600Hz and higher rated).

If this TV display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the Samsung UE58H5203 (58" and higher rated), the NEC MultiSync E585 (£1,480.90) (58" and higher rated), or the LG 60PB690 (60" and higher rated).
