If you need a pretty good main TV for your family room or living room, or an awesome TV for gaming, you should definitely consider this really affordable option. It is one of the best priced 4K UHD offerings from Samsung, yet still boasts some amazing features such as UHD Picture Dimming, Smart TV features, 4K streaming decoding, a quad core processor, and a contrast enhancer.
Therefore, the best feature of the Samsung UN40JU6500 would probably be a combination of its generally excellent quality and affordability.
Visual Specs – Pretty Great for the Price
TVs from Samsung boast some of the brightest LEDs found on the market, and the peak white light they produce creates an amazing contrast level, even if some of their TVs lack some HDR enhancing technologies that can be found in higher-end models from Samsung. This model is a pretty solid example of this.
Unlike its high-end SUHD cousins, the Samsung UN40JU6500 does not come with Precision Black technology for richer, deeper darker tones, or Peak Illuminator Pro technology for superior brightness, and yet it still provides a remarkably high level of brightness.
Moreover, the overall uniformity of blacks on the TV is great. As for the overall picture quality and color quality, the truth is that right out of the box it can seem badly overprocessed, but some calibration will really quickly set things to look way better. The Ultra Clear Panel and Wide Color Enhancer Plus technology do a lot for the visual quality on this TV.
The Ultra Clear technology that is built into the screen surface helps absorb ambient light whilst Wide Color Enhancer technology expands the usual LED/LCD color palette to a pretty wider range. Overall, contrast and color are both at their best in this TV, and easily rank as some of the best in an economy-level 4K TV.
You don’t necessarily have to have a mega-sized TV screen to get top-notch viewing experience. This Samsung’s 40-incher is compact enough for any room in your home, and it provides the super-crisp picture details.
Samsung Smart Hub – Great Smart TV features
The Smart Hub of the UN40JU6500 offers great smart features, amazing user interface as well as intuitive navigation. The Game tab is one of the major smart TV pages this time around, and the On TV page ensures individual logins which is a major plus for a home with several TV users. The Smart Hub for this TV includes a full web browser.
Navigating to the set’s applications screen allows you choose from scores of additional apps and services, such as music channels like Pandora, and sports like MLB. Samsung provides a competitive variety of options, and supports the PlayStation Now application as well, for those subscribers who are addicted to playing PlayStation 3 games.
