Samsung UN40EH6000F Review
If you're tired of feature firework shows, maybe this Samsung is for you.
The Samsung EH6000 produced a great contrast ratio, thanks to its deep blacks and modestly bright whites. The color accuracy was fair, but not impressive, as was the viewing angle.
Blacks this deep are a delight to see on an LCD television.
To begin with, the black value of 0.05 cd/m2 is the real star here: It's dark enough to make some plasma TVs jealous, and makes up for a mediocre peak brightness of just 230 cd/m2.
Even without a stunning peak brightness, the Samsung UN40EH6000 has a great contrast ratio of over 4500:1. This is a measure of the range of possible light and dark values available to a TV. The more values of light and dark used, the more realistic the picture will look. More on how we test contrast.
Green and blue values are not that accurate.
If you focus your attention on the green part of the chart, you can see that these values are highly undersaturated compared to the norm. We saw this immediately when calibrating. Also, the greens lacked luster—they were noticeably gray, which is never good. We tried jacking up the Color setting to increase this to some effect, but at a total loss to all blue and red values.
You can also see that the blue values are highly oversaturated. If we increased the color to save the greens, the blues would only be further washed away by over-excitement. More on how we test color performance.
