The UE32H6200's operating system is hit and miss. Presentation levels are high, especially with the Smart TV content, and while the remote control you get with the set isn't, sadly, one of Samsung's new Smart designs, it's more effective than it looks.

The structure of the picture adjustment menus is decent aside from the way the game preset is hidden away in a systems menu, and the provision of two separate 'advanced' picture menus when one would have done.

The main barriers to your enjoyment of the UE32H6200 are its lack of really effective picture presets (meaning you'll need to brave the picture set up menus if you want to get the best out of the TV) and some rather inscrutable aspects to the smart menus. The sheer sophistication of the Smart features on offer can appear daunting at first, too.

Samsung has provided some nice onscreen instructions and illustrations this year, as well as a few tutorial videos. But I still feel more could be done to make using Samsung's Smart TVs feel more intuitive.


The UE32H6200 sounds more powerful and dynamic than most 32-inch TVs, with more natural sounding voices and an engagingly wide soundstage. A lack of bass balance can leave action scenes sounding a bit thin and harsh, but this shortcoming is nothing like it normally would be with small flat-screen TVs.


We're a bit torn on this one. On the one hand we're pleased to see a brand willing to try and inject some quality into a small-screen market that's increasingly value rather than quality focussed. However, there's also no getting away from the fact that you can get decent 40-inch TVs for the UE32H6200's £500 price.

John has been writing about home entertainment technology for more than two decades - an especially impressive feat considering he still claims to only be 35 years old (yeah, right). In that time he’s reviewed hundreds if not thousands of TVs, projectors and speakers, and spent frankly far too long sitting by himself in a dark room.
