Introduction

With the UN46ES6500 (MSRP $1,729), Samsung is clearly making a statement in terms of design. Its all-black finish and attractive base will immediately garner attention. If TVs were based solely on how they look, this would be a clear recommendation.

Fortunately for consumers (and us), Samsung backed up this great design with extremely solid performance scores and features galore. There are plenty of ports, colors look very good, and Samsung's Smart TV platform is one of the best out there. Even the 3D experience on this TV is pleasant and well executed.

While there were some bumps along the way, like a not-so-great viewing angle and a shoddy user manual, this TV is mostly a delightful experience.
