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.
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.
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.
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).
There is no visible clouding or backlight bleeding. This problem is commonly found on LED TVs thinner than this Samsung H6350.
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.
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.
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.
It can get very, very bright. It performs really well in a room with windows.
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.
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.
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.
