Samsung UN55B6000 Review
With the current technology’s endless capability and man’s never ending want for finer things in life, electronic companies are making sure to meet both by producing the best gadgets they can offer to their consumers. Samsung, for instance, has been known for setting high standard when it comes to innovation and technology, which can apparently be seen on their products. One of the categories where they surely stand out in is the television. Brought by huge amount of market demands for flat screen LED TV, the company released Samsung UN55B6000 last 2009.
It’s a 55 inch beauty packed with numerous excellent features. Its ultra-thin body allows it to be mounted on the wall of your living room or bedroom, giving you more space to fill. It can also sit on a stand, making it easier to swivel and still give a perfect view of images at 178 degree angle in any direction. But because of its extreme slimness, extra caution is highly advised when unpacking it and/or placing it on your desired location. This TV uses LED technology backlighting that has a contrast ratio of 3000000:1, giving out sharp and rich in color images while helping you save energy. It has an Ultra Clear panel that minimizes reflection and has an anti-glare feature.
This device comes with two fifteen watt speakers; however, it may not meet your expectation if you are into home theater-like surround sound. It may be good enough for playing regular TV programs but some consumers find its built in speakers lacking crisp and loudness. So if you want a superb surround sound that can equate the spectacular scenes of your favorite DVD movie, you might want to connect your home theater system or a large speaker to it.
Another good thing about Samsung UN55B6000 can be seen in terms of connectivity. This TV has four HDMI ports, allowing you to connect HDMI-compliant devices such as DVD players (a regular DVD, HD DVD or Blu-ray Disc player), set-top box, and personal computers. If you’re a gaming enthusiast, you can also connect your PlayStation 3, Wii or Xbox 360 and play with your friends. Some video camcorders can also directly connect to it through the HDMI ports. You no longer have to transfer it to your personal computer because you can directly play your recorded videos on the TV. As mentioned previously, you may also connect a speaker directly to it through its digital audio output port. If you are into internet surfing, you can plug an Ethernet port (RJ-45) straight to it. It also has two USB ports that allow you to view JPEG images, play MP3 music files or MPEG movie files.
Overall, the Samsung UN55B6000 is indeed worthy of your hard-earned money. It may have come out as an expensive item when it was first introduced in the market, but now that newly launched LED TVs are out with sky high prices, you can enjoy purchasing this at a discounted value. It’s a good deal for those who want to have a good quality TV without sacrificing the expense.
