Plasma technology Samsung Smart TV with lots of features

I have said a few times that I really like the idea of a smart TV. The cool thing about the tech is that you can get online and access content that a plain TV can't offer you. Things like Netflix and other streaming TV services. Netflix is great and being able to get it right on your TV without needing anything else is a fantastic feature.

The Samsung PN51D6500 Smart TV is packed with some very nice features and a lot of tech. The TV is 3D ready with 600Hz refresh rate so the image should be very good in 3D and 2D mode. The set has a very narrow bezel with the Touch of Color accents and it has an integrated OTA HDTV tuner. The set can also convert 2D content to 3D images when used with the active shutter glasses that use Bluetooth.

The dynamic contrast ratio is 5M:1 and the set plays Netflix video and more. The critical web connectivity for this TV is via integrated WiFi. The integrated sound system of the set is a pair of 10W speakers and the TV has an illuminated remote control and it supports AllShare video and music streaming from DLNA-compatible Windows computers.

On the rear of the TV are four HDMI 1.4 inputs and a component video input. The TV also has a PC input, RF input, an optical digital output, dual USB ports and a detachable stand that swivels. The single biggest thing that I dislike about this set is that it doesn't include any 3D glasses. You will have to buy them separately to enjoy 3D out of the box. Naturally, you will need a broadband web connection to use the Samsung Smart TV features.

The numbers and specs above might not mean much to you. The contrast ratio on this set is very good. That is the amount of difference between the white and dark colors on the TV. A higher contrast ratio will give you more separation between colors and a better image quality. This is particularly important in films with lots of dark frames.

The four HDMI 1.4 ports mean that you can connect a number of accessories. Samsung doesn't specify, but generally, one of the HDMI ports will be on the side or front of the TV leaving three in the rear. The number of HDMI ports isn't as important if you will be using the TV with an AV receiver that takes multiple components and outputs it to one HDMI cable.

The refresh rate of 600Hz is important to ensure that the video is smooth and not jagged. A slower refresh rate is going to mean that the images are blurry and stutter. When in 3D mode the refresh rate is effectively halved with each eye seeing 300Hz meaning that even in 3D mode this TV will have smooth image. You can buy this TV online for about $1,600.
