Samsung UN55KU6290 offers great picture quality with clear details thanks to the 4k resolution. 4K resolution is four times greater than the Full HD resolution. The Ultra clear panel reduces the reflection of the light during daytime so you can watch TV without disturbance from the daylight. However, this TV doesn’t have local dimming which is bad news for the movie lovers. Local dimming is very important when watching content with dark scenes, like movies. The colors are also good thank to the Quantum Dot/Active Crystal technologies and the pur color feature provides natural colors. Samsung UN55KU6290 has a 120 motion rate which means that the motions are flawless. Also it has a 4k resolution up-scaler which means that you can watch 4k content all the time.
We will give 4.5/5 points for the Samsung UN55KU6290 review part of the picture quality.
Samsung UN55KU6290 is a smart TV which means that you can surf the web and view online content through the web browser. The connection can be established through the built-in wireless module or through the Ethernet port. Also you can access or download apps that will make the interaction with the TV much better. The quad-core processor can easily and quickly process any content, app, or game. Samsung UN55KU6290 offers so many ways to share the screen with other devices. Like smart hub, through mirroring, or through HDMI ports. All of these can easily be done by the Smart View 2.0 app. Also you can share your TVs content into your smartphone screen by the TV to mobile mirroring.
Usually the devices mentioned above must be on the same network to share the content but Samsung UN55KU6290 also has the Wi-Fi direct technology which enables you to connect smart devices directly with the TV. Samsung UN55KU6290 has three HDMI ports which we think are enough and two USB 2.0 ports. The V-chip enables you to block (scramble) channels that contain inappropriate content so you can actually make it family safe. We will give 4/5 points for the Samsung UN55KU6290 review part of the features.
Samsung UN55KU6290 has two built-in speakers with 10 W power each. The sound is loud and clear and the surround mode is very good thanks to the DTS premium sound 5.1. If you are planning to buy external speakers the movie watching experience will be so much better. Also you can listen to music with multiroom speakers across different rooms because the Samsung UN55KU6290 supports multiroom technology.
We will give 3.5/5 points for the Samsung UN55KU6290 review part of the sound.
Samsung’s UN55KU6290 design is generally good. The frame is thin for such a big TV. And the dark grey color looks good also. However the stander is big and somehow exaggerated. We expected more from the Samsung.
We will give 3.5/5 points for the Samsung UN55KU6290 review part of the design.
