This may be the television for you if you enjoy 3D content, would like a more affordable curved TV and use Wi Fi options especially for Skype application. The Smart Hub remote offers instant access to all the TV functions. Read on to find out what our techs have to say about the H6800.
The screen size of 121.92 cms, screen curvature 4200R and a resolution of 1920X1080 with an ultra clear panel makes viewing a delightful experience with an almost uniform image display across the screen. Whether you are watching sports on this Samsung model number H6800, a soap opera or the realistic wildlife channels the clarity of the display have to be seen to be believed. The clarity of the picture makes Skyping as close to a real life encounter.
The black level/brightness is satisfactory under the white lights, but the picture quality was found to be dull under dim light conditions. The contrast, under bright light displayed rich images. The colors were found to be accurate as the cooler colors did not affect the image.
DTS studio sound offers a premium quality sound that is equivalent to the sound of a 5.1 home theatre. The sound output is 40W with the option of a woofer setting and the down firing speakers positioned on 48H6800AR enhance the output which is of high quality offering excellent sound clarity is adequate for daily viewing.
The 3D HyperReal Engine is the picture engine that has a film mode option. The motion rate is 400 with a mega contrast dynamic ration that offers great precision of the 3D image. The wide color enhancer further improves the image which makes 3D viewing as close to real experience.
The response time of H6800 is found to be slower than other Televisions in this price range while the refresh rate for fast action sequence is accurate on 2D. You will need to tweak the motion setting for a pleasurable 3D viewing experience, especially when watching fast action sequences.
The content display for HD and SD were found to be excellent for Samsung 48H6800AR.
The various video modes that include sports, vivid, movie, game, dynamic etc are available like in all the televisions of this genre. The general display quality in film mode and the display in cinema mode for motion was found to be great.
We observed that the curvature of the H6800 did not offer any remarkable viewing benefit as claimed while the picture quality was observed to deteriorate at higher angles.
Input and Output
Option of 4 HDMI ports and 3 USB ports ensures your television is an all purpose entertainment gadget. An audio out mini jack and one digital audio out convert this simple unit into a home theatre experience.
RF cable input and IR out allows your television to be connected to various other entertainment equipments.
With direct WiFi connectivity and dongle ready, the H6800 becomes your workstation as well.
The curved design, the narrow bezel and the T-shape stand makes this piece of art appear elegant and awe-inspiring. The swivel option is missing from the T shape stand which gets compromised to a small extend due to the curvature of the screen in H6800.
The remote control is a smart hub with a well integrated and intuitive interface which we found to be one of the best remote ever used on TV. It is ideal for a simple system that connects the Samsung 48H6800AR, Set top box, sound bar and a Blu-ray player which can be controlled in a fun way. The smart Hub provides instant access to the entertainment experience. The apps take a slightly longer response time to load though a faster response time would have been highly appreciated. The entertainment contents are organized on the smart hub panel which makes it easy for the user to navigate.
Why should only cell phone be smart? Samsung offer you a smart TV for multimedia, apps, news, social network, a search option and inbuilt Skype too.
The 48H6800AR is a smart television with the smartness to recognize faces as well as motion control for you to operate the television from the comforts of your sofa or bed that too without using the remote control.
As televisions evolved, Samsung has given amazing additional features to make 48H6800AR a power packed gadget for households. The digital view, the auto channel search, clock and timer on/off, sleep timer are the convenience features.
USB 2.0 port can let you watch movies or connect to your pen drive. The game mode, sports mode, POP embedded, the Picture-in-Picture mode with local language support lets you enjoy games as well.
The external sound system can be connected to the TV through the jacks or the USB supported ports.
The GUI or the graphical user interface is a type of interface that allows users to interact with electronic devices through icons or visual indicators. This feature is activated when Samsung H6800 is connected to the HDMI OUT jack, and may take some time to appear on screen.
The thin design gives a classy look and the picture quality is above average, but will not rate it as the best. The curvature of Samsung 48H6800AR does not offer any extra benefit as claimed by the manufacturer, in fact we did notice some deterioration of picture quality at higher angles. The sound is of clear quality with the down firing speakers enhancing the woofer effect.
The multiple connectivity options with USB, HDMI and 3.5mm jack ports add to the convenience of connecting various devices thereby increasing the utility of the H6800. The curved full HD television from Samsung has nothing new but works well with a good picture quality and sound output. The Smart Hub remote is literally intelligent to enjoy the entertainment experience. With the additional features, curved screen and its elegant, classy looks it is a good buy for the price.
