Samsung UN46C6800UF Review – Sony 46EX700 Vs Panasonic GT25

In this Samsung UN46C6800UF review, I compare the Samsung UN46C6300 with the Sony 46EX700 and the Panasonic GT25. Which of these is the better value? Here is a quick comparison. The UN46C6800UF is the best buy among these three. Read on to find out which of these is the better value! The Samsung UN46C6800UF is a good choice for those who are interested in playback of photos, movies, and music.

Samsung UN46C6300

This review will give you an idea of what you can expect from the Samsung UN46C6300UF. This 46-inch LCD TV supports a wide variety of video file formats. It doesn’t play music, but it does support DLNA (Dual Link Network Architecture) home theater networking. The TV’s stand is made of sturdy plastic, and it ships with a remote control and stand. The package includes a user guide and batteries, as well as a cleaning cloth for the screen.

The UN46C6300UF’s picture quality is solid, but not as good as some competitors. It has a heavy auto-dimming feature that affects contrast, and the screen is a bit cluttered. This is a big problem, but there is no way to disable this feature. The good news is that the display’s speaker volume is more than adequate to handle most media playback needs.

In contrast, the Vizio M470NV’s display had a distinct advantage over the Samsung UN46C6300UF in terms of color performance. While both monitors produced vibrant colors, the Vizio managed to maintain a more consistent color temperature. While the Samsung UN46C6300UF had a slightly higher black level, it did not deaden reflections quite as well. In contrast, the Vizio M470NV’s viewing angle was more than twice as wide. Both models had built-in WiFi, but the latter had additional component AV inputs.

Sony 46EX700

This review will cover the features of the 46EX700. While its color temperature is solid, there are a few things I don’t like. I wish the TV supported Pandora or Vudu. Those two services are available for other brands, and there are third-party solutions for Sony televisions. But it still has its pros and cons. Let’s take a look at what we liked about the 46EX700.

The EX700 offers advanced picture controls. Its four HDMI inputs are evenly split, with two mounted on the side panel. A USB port and AV input with composite video round out the side panel. Its rear panel includes a VGA-style analog input for PCs. Lastly, it includes an Ethernet port and analog audio connections. We recommend leaving these settings off for optimal picture quality.

In our tests, the screen brightness of the Sony 46EX700 UN46C6850UF was significantly higher than that of the LG. In contrast, the black level was a little more uniform. While neither model was a perfect match in terms of contrast, the Sony 46EX700 UN46C6800UF had slightly higher black levels and better color temperatures than the LG. Both models performed similarly in color accuracy tests.

Panasonic GT25

In my Panasonic UN46C6800UF review, I’ll highlight some of the main differences between the UC6800UF and its competition. Plasma displays produce a deeper black than LCDs. They also maintain a more consistent color temperature and RGB color curve. However, both types of screens have their advantages and disadvantages. Let’s explore these differences to see which one’s best for your needs. Also, keep in mind that plasma displays don’t have the same features as LCDs.

The biggest difference between the Samsung UN46C6800UF and the Panasonic UC6500UF is the cost. The Samsung UN46C6300 is significantly cheaper, but its audio quality falls far short of the higher-end models. This unit also supports most video file formats, but it cannot play music or other media. A Panasonic plasma is by far the most expensive, and it’s more expensive than Samsung’s LED-backlit LCD, which is surprisingly power-hungry.
