Samsung UN40KU6290FXZA review with HDR surprise

We know that Samsung 4K TVs are incredibly popular this year, with many of you wanting to know which is the best Samsung 4K TV to buy for the cheapest possible price.

We’ve already talked about some of the company’s high end models with the Super UHD Samsung KS8000 but now it’s time to look at the lower end spectrum with the Samsung UN40KU6290FXZA – currently the cheapest 4K Samsung TV that we’ve seen online.

This Samsung 40″ LED Smart 4K Ultra HD TV is currently being sold at Best Buy for just $299.99 which is a really good price.

Straight away, we can confirm that this 40-inch model does have HDR Premium which we know some consumers were worried about it not having it given it is so cheap.


HDR10 is available on the Samsung UN40KU6290FXZA however and other specs include 4K upscaling, UHD dimming, Smart apps such as Netflix with Samsung Smart Hub, Motion rate 120, 3 HDMI inputs, 2 USB inputs and Samsung Smart View to watch TV content on your phone.

It’s packed with features and at $299 it is really hard to refuse. With HDR Premium on board, it means that PS4 Pro and Xbox One S owners could be tempted, although you do need to bear in mind that this is only a 8-bit color TV not a 10-bit color which you’d get on Samsung’s SUHD models.

Still, this is fantastic deal and we just wanted to point out that HDR is included in this model since Best Buy has chosen not to advertise HDR on their listing, which we found odd.

To check out what buyers have already said about this, we highly recommend you read through the Samsung UN40KU6290FXZA reviews for November 2016.

At the time of writing, this model has a 4.8 out of 5 rating so consumers are clearly loving it. Get yours now to avoid stock issues and let us know if you have any questions about the 4K features on board or just need a little help.

I have one of these too and my Xbox One S says it’s 10bit. Best TV I’ve ever owned, maybe one of the cheapest I’ve ever paid for also! Love it.


Yes Im 100% sure. Go to and hit the search bar. Type in ku6300 (which is the U.S. version of the international ku6290. Hit enter, then scroll down until you see the panel section, which by the way updated by because of a mistake using their measuring equipment . Hope this helps.


@ Poppy are you sure this is a 10bit panel? some people say its only 8 and some say it is 10. you sure this is a 10 bit panel?


Hi. I own one of these. Definitely a 10bit panel. Just another great feature added. More updates to come in this model soon. Enjoy!
