Samsung Un65MU650D Review

The samsung un65mu650d review is a model in Samsung's affordable Crystal UHD range. It aims to offer a healthy balance between price, features and performance. A slim design and loads of apps are highlights, but they're countered by a weak picture and sluggish interface.

For four thousand dollars you get a pretty good LED-backlit LCD TV with an edge lit panel that's a little more than one inch thick (excluding the base). That's a bit on the heavy side for a 65-inch set, and you may need to add a mount and stand to help it hold up to your living room decor.

Like most of its brethren in the budget UHD class, the C6500 doesn't support Dolby Vision HDR content, but it does offer support for HDR10, HLG and Samsung's own HDR10+ system. The C6500's IPS panel has decent wide viewing angles, though the colours fade quite quickly off-axis.

It also doesn't feature local dimming, which could have helped boost its already impressive contrast ratio to better compete with other sets in the same price bracket. That said, the C6500's blacks are solid and its auto motion processing works well enough to keep most demanding gamers happy.

Samsung's Tizen-based Eden smart system has been refreshed over the past year or so, and it's much more responsive than ever on the C6500. You still get a couple of rows of content links superimposed over the picture and plenty of other content-showcasing options, too, and S Recommendation is quite useful for finding movies and TV shows that you'll enjoy.
