3D and SMART TV come together to form a knock-out set with the Samsung UE40ES6300.


With standard 3D, the UE40ES6300 offers superb levels of depth and projection into the room. The Samsung also offers the novelty of watching standard 2D video converted to 3D. Whether you're watching in 3D or 2D, the picture quality is very impressive. The UE40ES6300 offers Samsung's Wide Colour Enhancer Plus engine and Digital Noise Filter. This unique Samsung system offers far more natural and convincing colours by strengthening the red, green and blues. Samsung's Digital Noise Filter is especially effective with TV broadcasts - the UE40ES6300 is one TV that doesn't just excel with 1080p HD material only to be let down when watching "ordinary" TV - this TV impresses whatever the source. Another technology used to good effect is CMR (Clear Motion Rate) 200 Hz. CMR200 Hz reduces motion blur for smoother action - especially with fast-moving sports events.


With a TV of this quality we'd always recommend a soundbar or separate AV system to get the best from it. If this isn't possible, though, you'll find the onboard sound surprisingly good for such a thin TV with little apparent space for the speakers. SRS TheatreSound HD gives a well-balanced sound that's surprisingly weighty for a TV but also clear, too. With a 2 x 10 Watt amplifier on board there's also enough power for larger rooms.


In addition to its enhanced picture quality, the Samsung UE40ES6300 also benefits from Samsung's Smart TV. This brings all the control and search options together in one central hub. New to the Hub are three individual group services - Kids, Fitness and Family Story. Providing child's entertainment, exercise apps and the easy storage and access of your photos and videos, the Smart Hub is now more connected than ever. Also standard on this Smart TV are Samsung Apps which gives you access to popular sites such as YouTube and Facebook. There's also a full web browser, making this TV perfect for a bit of sofa-surfing. Allshare, powered by DLNA, lets you connect the TV up to your home network via Ethernet or the standard built-in wi-fi. From here you can stream content from your PC or laptop, onto the big screen. Connect Share Movie teams up with the USB sockets to offer film, music or photos to be easily transferred from your digital media device to the TV's screen, via USB socket. One of the USB sockets also offers two-way recording. Simply connect a USB-equipped hard drive and use the Electronic Program Guide to make this a very handy PVR. In addition to the three USB sockets there are also three HDMIs - perfect for connecting up a wide range of digital sources.


As you'd expect from Samsung, the UE40ES6300 is quite a looker. With its narrow bezel and discreet design, it hides its bulk well. The slim bezel also enhances the picture by making it appear larger and even more engaging. Samsung's smart four-leg stand is the finishing touch for what has to be one of the smartest TVs in its class.

For a 3D TV with one of the smartest network connections in its class, the Samsung UE40ES6300 is hard to fault.
