Samsung UE32ES6300 32-inch TV
Mr Review test criteria
Summary: Pros: Great picture quality, excellent sound, impressive features Cons: Smart TV not great to navigate with the remote
If you are not necessarily wanting a 40” screen and yet want a very high quality television then the UE32ES6300 is for you. In reviews it has all the specification of a higher end model, comparable with the Samsung UE40ES6800U and with 3D capability, Smart TV and Freeview HD. Picture and sound quality are excellent and our comparison reviews found it to be the best 32” television on the market. Minor downside would be that is a Class B for energy rating.
Excellent Picture Quality
Again Samsung has created a television with excellent picture quality. It has 1920 x 1080 picture resolution, a 400 clear motion rate (this reduces blurring on fast moving scenes) and Samsungs micro dimming specification which adjusts brightness depending on the light levels in your room. Colours are naturalistic, blacks look black and they are sharp, especially in high definition, in particular Freeview HD provides spectacular picture quality. Minor criticism would be that the blacks start to deteriorate when viewed from a more oblique angle, but this may also be more evident because the front on picture quality is so strong. The 3D is very easy on the eye and the problems reported with other 3D devices such as double vision issues and lack of depth, are not apparent here. The UE32ES6300 also allows standard 2D video to be watched in 3D mode, which surprisingly actually works quite well.
Crystal clear sound
The technical specification for sound quality is very high for a 32” TV in this price bracket. It has SRS TheatreSound HD (evens out the sound) and Dolby Digital Plus which to the lay person means it has a detailed, crisp and full sound quality. Also, an interesting feature is the ability to emphasise music or speech, so sometimes when dialogue is difficult to comprehend then this is very useful. Also, individuals with hearing issues have also reported this useful. Our reviewers found this to be one of the best on the market for sound quality if not using a separate EV system or Sound Bar.
The UE32ES6300 has all the benefits of the Smart TV Samsung have developed that gets placed in their highest spec TV’s too. As well as standard internet searching and a host of apps such as Facebook, Netflix and YouTube (in fact over 20 preloaded), the Smart Hub gives access to the Samsungs signature range of Fitness, Kids and Family story apps. These include children’s entertainment, exercise programmes and an easy way to share photos and videos. There are also three HDMI and USB Sockets. There is even an app that allows you to use a qwarty board and control the television through your i-phone. Our team reported that the electronic instructions that are built-in to the TV were not the most logical to follow and the remote control wasn’t the most intuitive, but just takes a bit of getting used to. Also, it was worth spending the time getting the 3D set up correctly.
Samsung have excelled again with looks and provide a contemporary sleek television with a very narrow bezel which seems to enhance the picture by making it look bigger. It also has a retro styled 4 pronged stand which looks good. So, if you are looking for a TV that also looks good when switched off, this is a top contender.
The UE32ES6300 is Class B so not as good as some of its rivals; it uses 39 watts in energy efficiency mode.
