Superb TV ...........,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung UE50ES6300 50-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p Smart 3D LED TV with Built-in Wi-Fi and Freeview HD (New for 2012) (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Samsung UE50ES6300 3D Full HD 1080p Smart 3D LED TV with Wi-Fi built-in and Freeview HD and 2 x glasses included (New for 2012)
Ok I don't usually review stuff but felt the need for this Samsung TV and to alay any fears from people reading some derogatory feedback!
Slow Smart TV - Simple if your broadband isn't up to the job it obviously won't be a pleasurable experience
Poor picture quality - check your aerial /sat dish if you've got a rust bucket on the side of your house don't bother purchasing
Poor Sound - The sound on this TV (Movie in sound settings) is first class I have a surround system which I use for movies but genuinely don't bother for standard TV the speakers are in the rear of what is an ultra slim bezel and literally bounces the sound of the walls behind it.
Sound issues with a optical cable - I have played through a PS3/DVD player and the TV using an optical splitter without any such problems
Clouding-again not on my set not on the main screen the corners or the edges as some have noted
Amazon - ordered on a Monday at 4.15 for next day delivery was in my front room at 9.30 the following morning all for the princely sum of £7.99!!! I have experienced Amazons return policy and it is first class other companies should take note
The TV itself is ultra slim I had been following the 46" screen for some time keeping an eye on reviewers and hoping for a price fall when I realised I could get the 50" at a price the other model was at some months earlier so at just above £1000 considering I bought a Panasonic 42" six years earlier for £2500 this is amazing value
On HD the picture is without doubt as good as anything I've seen ,watching The Great British Bake Off I swear I could of dipped my finger in Marys marshmallow (if I was that way inclined) OK on SD it depends on the original transmission some is as good as you may expect and some on a large screen isn't great but can't blame the TV for that I expected it.
On 3d some have said nothing sticks out at you like in the cinema well I watched Hugo and a scene where a guitar juts out of the screen was good enough for me I could of tuned the damn thing! And again I'm not sitting in a cinema with a screen the size of a double decker bus
Smart TV - BBC iPlayer is first class no buffering probs at all and ok the apps aren't up to much but then again I don't want to play games on it Hopefully C4 and C5 will be on soon.
Recording TV to a memory stick is simple again as long as you buy the correct one in the first place only real down side is you can't record and watch another channel but you do have the option of watching on demand TV and recording at the same time I have no doubt they will fit a dual connector in future .
All in all this is a fantastic purchase at this price and would recommend it to anyone.
NB accidentally sat on the remote the other night only to find you can pause live TV didn't know of this option when I purchased.Amazon I need 6 stars.

Great review, certainly made me grin. Especially the bit about the marshmallow.
It never occurred to me about the sound quality being adversely affected if the TV was set against the wall. Mine is on a cantilevered arm and the sound is brilliant, but I guess it would suffer if the speakers were restricted.

Hi, can you record on freeview and watch freesat simultaneously or vice versa? Is there any series link type capability on the pvr?
Just trying to work out weather to go for the 6300 or a 5500 and a humax freesat box.

Yes, it does have a series link type capability (haven't actually tried it, mind.)
You might well be able to view freesat whilst recording freeview channel (or vice versa,) because you can actually watch certain other channels when recording even with only one signal connection.

Sorry I can't definitively answer because I don't have a aerial for Freeview but someone has just commented that he believes you can but wouldn't stake my life on that!
There is a series link on the pvr I have used it for match of the day successfully
