55 in.

The biggest feature on the UN55B6000 is the new LED backlighting system.

Controls, Menu & Remote

Remote

No remote was available for us to examine and try for the UN55B6000; Samsung said that they have not finalized the choice of the remote for these models.

Controls

The controls on the screen itself are, frankly, something of an afterthought; they are small touch controls on the bottom right corner of the display. They are only visible if you touch the area, when the backlights come on to show the individual touch areas.

Menu

We were not able to look at the menu system of the UN55B6000, so we can't comment on how good or bad the menu system is. Other Samsung models that we have looked at have had pretty good menu systems, though, so we expect that Samsung will probably stick with the same approach of having a series of top-level menus on the left side of the screen that control features such as Picture, Sound, etc.
