Samsung UE40HU6900

Samsung UE40HU6900 The Samsung UE40HU6900 is a 4k TV with 4 HDMI2.0 ports, DVB C, T and S2 tuner, Ethernet, WLAN, 1 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0 ports, Unicable support, DLNA-Client, USB-Recorder and VESA 200*200 support, all for less than 900 Euros list price. The only things missing are Displayport input, a DVB-T2 tuner, Bluetooth and a SAT-IP client/server. 3D support is missing, too, but I don´t miss it at all. Update: Bluetooth seems to be included (should work for keyboard, mouse...), but the user interface, especially the set up menus and the changing of channel lists are REALLY badly implemented. Export of the channel list exports only to a proprietary format (no XML, CSV...).
