This tv was replaced by the Samsung J6300

Except for two small issues, the Samsung H6350 LED TV is a real winner. The picture quality is impressive for an LED TV. If it is within your price range, this is your best choice - unless you need a wide viewing angle.

Pros
  • Great picture quality, no matter the amount of light sources in your room.
  • Very low motion blur and average-good input lag. Using this TV to play video games is great.
  • Very thin borders.
Cons
  • Limited viewing angle. If you have a lot of viewers, the seats on the sides will not have as good of a picture quality.
  • Poor uniformity on a gray screen. This can be seen in panning shots.

Design

Design
Samsung H6350 Design

Samsung slightly improved the design this year compared with the previous F6300. The biggest change is the very thin borders, the thinnest we have seen so far.

Stand

The stand can swivel about 20° on each side. The TV wobbles a little bit when you push it, but the stand is wide enough to not worry about flipping over.

9.3 Contrast

Black : 0.021 cd/m2
White : 100.4 cd/m2
Contrast : 4781 : 1

The blacks are very good for an LED. You will not have any problem using this TV in a dark environment. The calibration of the screen was good, but not perfect by default (the full list of picture settings that we used is at page three of this review).

9.0 Black Uniformity
Samsung H6350 Black Uniformity

There is no visible clouding or backlight bleeding. This problem is commonly found on LED TVs thinner than this Samsung H6350.

5.5 Gray Uniformity
Samsung H6350 Gray Uniformity

Unfortunately, like most LEDs, it suffers from some dirty screen effect. This is mostly visible with gray backgrounds, but can sometimes be seen in panoramic shots. The pricier Samsung H7150 that we tested had better uniformity.

6.2 Viewing Angle
Viewing Angle : 22 °

Like all Samsung LED TVs, the viewing angle is limited. At about 22°, the picture starts to desaturate and turn slightly white. The average person won't notice this; it is more apparent when walking past the TV or switching seats.

8.5 Average Room
Samsung H6350 Average Room
Reflection : 1.8 %
Surface Type : Semi-gloss

Even though it has a semi-glossy screen, it does a good job of reducing the amount of light that is reflected. A few overhead lights won't be a problem.

8.7 Bright Room

Max white : 329.1 cd/m2

It can get very, very bright. It performs really well in a room with windows.

Motion

Score components:
8.5 Motion Blur
Samsung H6350 Motion Blur

For an LED, the motion handling is surprisingly good. The majority of the blur is caused by the frame rate instead of the response time of the pixels. The distinct images seen is due to the scanning backlight.

Inputs

Score components:
7.9 Input Lag
Samsung H6350 Input Lag
Input Lag : 44.1 ms

The input lag is pretty good. You'll want to set the input type to PC or turn on Game mode. Otherwise, we measured an input lag of 88ms.

Samsung has the biggest selection of smart TV apps. Its smart TV platform is very good. Check out our full review of Samsung's 2014 Smart TV platform.

Remote

However, this model comes only with a standard remote. Higher-end models like the H7150 have a special remote that doubles as a mouse pointer with voice commands. The standard remote makes it harder to navigate the apps, especially when browsing the web.

Overall, the Samsung H6350 LED TV is a very solid mid-range LED TV. The majority should opt for this TV. One of its few drawbacks is that the picture becomes desaturated when you are not sitting directly in front of it. If you don't mind an uglier build and very slow smart features, you can save money by opting for the H6203. The picture quality is the same. If you just want the best picture quality, the H7150 is even better, but it is also pricier.
