Samsung PS50C6900 TV review
If you want the latest television technology and features, look no further
Previous Samsung sets that have warmed our cockles started on the front foot thanks to a low retail price – not so with this one.
The PS50C6900 also ticks all the Internet TV boxes. You get the BBC iPlayer and LoveFilm apps, with Internet@TV giving access to a wealth of streaming content.
Add a wireless dongle, or connect via Ethernet cable to enjoy impressively high-quality pictures via iPlayer (HD included) and films at your fingertips should you subscribe to LoveFilm – though with a lower quality picture.
Out of the box, it’s easy on the eye, although the pedestal stand (be warned: an involved connection process is required) perhaps doesn’t do the set justice. The remote is underwhelming too, but the interface is simple to navigate, despite the wealth of features.
A strong Freeview performance gets us off to a good start, with impressively sharp edges and a clean presentation considering the upscaling job required on a standard-def picture.
This bears fruit with DVD performance too, with a colourful, detailed picture, even if motion can be a little jagged when the set’s really pushed.
This is a well-specified telly, and with a level of performance that matches, this set should definitely be fighting for supremacy on your shortlist.
