Visual appeal

Samsung does not bundle any 3D glasses with this set. They’re an optional extra and these days, the brand’s basic Active Shutter models will set you back 50 quid each. For those that want to, you can also convert 2D into faux 3D. I don’t really see the point myself, but some folks must be doing it.

Samsung UE40D6530

Some 3D crosstalk issues, but a good performer overall

Verdict



Overall, this mainstream LED looker hits far more than it misses. It’s a refined 40in Freeview HD TV with very agreeable hi-def picture quality. Throw in access to Samsung’s burgeoning VOD and apps portal, plus the option of 3D and the UE40D6530 begins to look like a decidedly smart buying choice. ®
