The Samsung J6200 has a cheap bezel and slow smart features. However, it has the least motion blur that we have seen so far, and excellent black uniformity (although the blacks are not deep).

  • Very little motion blur
  • Great black uniformity
  • Slow and outdated smart features
  • Cheap and bulky design
  • Limited viewing angle

Samsung J6200 Movies

This is a solid, but basic, TV for watching movies. The blacks are fairly deep, and there aren't many uniformity issues. If you're on a budget and want a good TV for watching movies, this is a good choice.

There's also no judder when watching 24 fps movies, which is a big plus.

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.

If you only care about picture quality, not the look of the design or the smart features, the Samsung J6200 is a great choice for a budget TV. Because its contrast ratio is only average, it isn’t the best choice for a dark room, but at least the blacks are uniform. On the plus side, it has the fastest response time we have measured so far, which is great for sports and video games (although the input lag is only average).

The Samsung UN40J6200 is quite a good TV. It has good contrast, good black uniformity, and the least motion blur of any TV we’ve tested this year. Unfortunately, its 720p upscaling capabilities are poor, and its design is quite cheap. Get this if you’re looking for a reasonably priced 1080p TV and want great picture quality.

For a bit cheaper, the Vizio E40-C2 is nearly as good for general usage, and a better option overall. Its input lag is a good deal lower, which makes it better overall for gamers. It also has pretty minimal motion blur, though it’s not as good on that front as is the J6200. If you’re a gamer, get this TV. Otherwise, the J6200 is a better choice. See our review

You can get a somewhat better TV by opting for the Samsung UN40J6300. In terms of picture quality, the only real advantage it has is that it is better at upscaling 720p video. Apart from that, its main perks are the better build quality, the increased number of HDMI ports (four instead of two), and the latest smart features. The Samsung J6200 is stuck using an older version of the Smart Hub. See our review

The Samsung UN50J6200 is a very good 1080p TV. It’s not quite up to the standard of the higher-end Samsung TV models, but its overall picture is really good, and it’s a great choice for a TV for general use. Its main failing is its poor design, which makes it feel cheap. If that doesn’t bother you, this is a fine choice for your TV.

Get a Vizio E50-C1 if you want a good budget gaming TV. Its overall picture quality isn’t as good as what you see with the J6200, but it has good motion handling and low input lag. Pick this up if you want picture quality that is nearly as good as the higher-end 1080p models, but for a much lower price. See our review

The Samsung UN50J6300 is a good TV, but not that much better than the Samsung J6200. It’s better at upscaling 720p, and it has the new Tizen smart platform, but other than that, they’re about on equal footing in terms of picture. If you need more HDMI ports or want the nicer aesthetics, get the J6300. See our review

We’ve only seen a couple of 1080p TVs that are better than the Samsung UN55J6200, so this TV is a pretty solid buy. It has the best motion handling of any TV we’ve seen this year, and had really great contrast and black uniformity, too. It’s unfortunately not very good at playing 720p video, and it looks cheap aesthetically, but it’s a good option for people who want really good 1080p picture quality for cheap.

You can get a cheaper TV that is nearly as good for overall picture quality, and is better for gaming performance, by getting the Vizio E55-C1. Its main downside in comparison to the J6200 is that its black uniformity isn’t as good. Beyond that, they’re pretty similar. If you want the lower input lag, or don’t mind losing a bit of uniformity to save money, get the E-series. See our review

If you want the best available 1080p TV, get the Samsung UN55J6300. Its picture quality is about equal to the J6200, but its 720p upscaling is better, the smart features are newer and its build quality is sturdier. It’s nicer aesthetically, and also comes with four more HDMI ports. If you’re interested in either of those qualities, get the J6300. See our review

Pick up the Samsung J6200 if you want really good picture quality for a fairly low price. It has great contrast and black uniformity, and it has very minimal motion blur. It only has two HDMI ports, though, and its smart features are quite outdated. If you want the latest features, look for something else. Otherwise, this is a pretty good choice.

For a cheaper TV that is nearly as good for movies and TV, and is better for gaming, get the Vizio E60-C3. Its main benefit is that its input lag is lower, which makes it a better choice for gamers looking for a competitive edge. Be aware, though, that the stand is nearly as wide as the TV itself. You’ll need a very wide surface if you don’t plan on mounting this TV. See our review

Get the Samsung UN60J6300 if you want the best overall 1080p TV available. It has good contrast, uniformity, motion handling, and upscaling – all pretty much equal to the J6200 (though the 720p upscaling is stronger with the J6300). It also has two extra HDMI ports, and the latest smart features. Get this if you want the best and don’t want to settle for worse smart features, fewer ports, and worse aesthetics. See our review

There are only a couple of 1080p TVs we’d recommend over the Samsung UN65J6200, which means this model is a solid choice for most people. It has great overall picture, and while it’s not inexpensive, it’s not priced as high as Samsung’s top 1080p TV. If you want a great image without breaking the bank, this is a pretty good choice.

The Vizio E65-C3 is a very good 1080p TV, with picture quality that is very nearly equal to what you get with the J6200. We’ve heard that the input lag is a bit higher with this model, so it may not be as good for gaming as are some of the smaller sizes, but it’s still a great budget option. Just be aware that the stand is nearly as wide as the TV, so finding a place to put this TV could be difficult. See our review

If you want a great 1080p TV and don’t mind paying a bit more than you would for the UN65J6200, get the Samsung UN65J6300. Its picture quality is quite similar to the J6200’s, but it is better at upscaling 720p, it has newer smart features, and it also has a better build quality. Worth picking up if you want the best 1080p TV and have space in your budget. See our review
