A smart TV packed with features

Smart TVs are great, but some of their best features, such as catch-up TV and on-demand video, are often hard to find or difficult to navigate. Not so with Samsung's UE40F6400.This 40in, 3D TV has a huge selection of online services accessible from a gorgeous, easy-to-use interface.           

Once you turn the TV on, you'll be greeted by the smart TV interface, dubbed 'Smart Hub' by Samsung, but it can be set to launch live TV if you wish. The interface has five screens split between TV, Movies, Apps, Social and Multimedia. The TV and Movies pages recommend what to watch based on other films and programs you've seen previously. These recommendations were spot on, although in the case of TV programs it needs a week to learn what you like to watch.

A smart TV packed with features

A huge range of services are available on the Apps page, including catch-up TV from BBC iPlayer and 40D, and movie- rental services such as Netflix, Lovefilm, Acetrax and Blinkbox There are dedicated apps for Facebook, Twitter and Skype on the Social page, along with a web browser. As with all smart TVs, controlling the web browser and social-networking apps using a remote is clumsy, but you can connect a USB mouse and keyboard instead. The TV has a shiny black bezel and metal-effect stand, but it's too chunky and the plastic build feels cheap.

The TV has plenty of connections, though, including SCART and component video connections, and three HDMI ports. It also has three USB ports, optical audio and headphone sockets. And built-in Wi-Fi means you can connect to the internet without stringing an Ethernet cable from your router.

We had no problems playing multimedia files from a USB key or streaming them from a NAS using Smart Hub's Multimedia page. It can even play MKV and QuickTime files, which often trip up other TVs. You can record live TV to an external hard disk, too.

Freeview HD channels and Blu-ray movies look sharp and detailed. Turning on Samsung's image-quality presets enhanced the look of broadcast TV, but dark scenes looked inaccurate until we tweaked the image settings. If you're a fan of 3D then you'll also be pleased by the inclusion of two pairs of 3D glasses.

Its plastic construction feels cheap, but it has excellent picture quality, a good selection of online video services and, compared with smart TVs from other manufacturers, it's simple to use. It's pricey at $1123.5, but its features and image quality put it a head above cheaper TVs, making it good value.
