The Samsung J6200 has a cheap bezel and slow smart features. However, it has very little motion blur, and excellent black uniformity (although the blacks are not deep).
The stand is cheap and not very stable. It doesn't swivel. Our 55" J6200 had a footprint of 9" x 22.75".
This is a solid, but basic, TV in terms of picture quality. The blacks are fairly deep, and there aren't many uniformity issues. Upscaling of low quality content is quite good. Unfortunately the TV can't get very bright to deal with reflections, and the picture quality degrades when viewed from the side.
The contrast ratio is average on this TV. If you turn off the lights in your room, you'll see the blacks look a little gray.
Our unit's gray uniformity is poor. The corners are darker and there are a few brighter spots on the screen.
The viewing angle is limited. The colors desaturate when you sit at an angle. While you can still see the picture, this isn't ideal if you have multiple viewpoints.
Update 01/06/2017: We have changed the methodology of testing. Since this is an old TV which we don't have anymore, we extrapolated the results from 2016 TVs.
The black uniformity is great. No major flashlighting or clouding.
Surprisingly, a 720p input looks softer than normal. If you are watching cable TV, you should let your receiver do the upscaling to 1080p instead
The J6200 handles reflections pretty well. There is a slight rainbow effect around lightbulbs, but nothing distracting.
It can't get very bright. You can get by with one or two windows, but this TV is really only suited to dark rooms.
This is a good TV at handling motion. It has extremely little motion blur due to the fast pixel response time. When watching movies via a blu-ray player it is very smooth. It is able to interpolate content up to the native refresh rate of 120Hz.
It currently has the fastest response time that we have measured so far. The amount of motion blur is really minimal, which is great. As you can see in our picture, you can barely see any trail following our logo.
The J6200 features a backlight strobing feature. Find out more here.
There is no judder when a movie is outputted at 24p (like via a Blu-ray player). Over 60i or 60p though (like on cable), the TV can't always do the reverse 3:2 pulldown correctly. At least, if you like the soap opera effect, you can turn on 'Auto Motion Plus' to get rid of this.
There's not much delay between when you input a command and when you see the result onscreen due to the average input lag. It is a 1080p TV so doesn't accept any higher resolution signals. It also doesn't accept a 120Hz input.
Under game mode and PC mode, the input lag is 44.5ms, which is average. It is not really noticeable.
To get chroma 4:4:4, set the type of the HDMI input to PC.
The sound of this TV isn't great. It's pretty inaccurate, can't get very loud, and has noticeable distortion when the volume is turned up.
On the upside, the bass is pretty good (for a TV).
Note: Sound Quality test for TVs reviewed before 2017 was performed at 75dB, 85dB, and Max SPL. Starting 2017, the target SPL levels have been changed to 70dB, 80dB, and Max dB SPL.
Poor frequency response all around. At higher volumes significant pumping may be present. The TV doesn't get loud either, but the bass extension is decent.
Decent distortion under light load, but the distortion increases noticeably as the volume increases.
Overall the J6200 is a pretty average TV. This is great for those who only care about picture quality, not the design or smart features. Great for video games though thanks to the excellent pixel response.
Average movie performance. Picture quality is average but lacks features found on high end TVs. Uniformity is quite good.
Slightly above average for TV shows in a bright room. Average picture quality. Upscaling of content is good. Unfortunately can't get very bright to deal with reflections and picture deteriorates when viewed from the side.
Above average for sports. Very little motion blur which is great for fast plays. Can interpolate content up to 120Hz. Uniformity is quite good.
Great for video games. Excellent motion performance for fast paced games. Input lag is average which should be good for most people. Decent picture quality.
Doesn't support HDR. Color range is limited to SDR content. Can't achieve bright highlights. Decent picture quality.
Average PC monitor. Very responsive, which is great. Average picture quality. 1080p panel but supports chroma for clear text.
