Samsung JU6390

60″ JU6390 60Hz Smart LED TV – Product Profile

Looking for a great deal on a large screen 4K Ultra HD TV? Then you may want to check out Samsung’s JU6390. This model is only available with a 60″ display and is sold exclusively at Best Buy. What makes this TV such a great deal is its sale price of $799.99. That’s right, a 60″ 4K TV for just under $800.00! ($1,499.99 retail price)

OK, you may be wondering if this TV is just a deeply discounted – poor performing and featureless television, especially when you take into consideration its very cheap price… well, I personally can’t answer the question regarding its performance since I have neither reviewed or auditioned the JU6390. But what I can say is that it’s certainly not a stripped-down version considering it has a fair amount of good and useful features.

I did some research and read the customer reviews (reviews no longer available) regarding this TV on Best Buy’s website to learn what consumers were saying about the JU6390 and to get an idea of how well it performs. What I found was a mixed bag of opinions – there were many individuals who claimed it was a good or great performing TV and were happy with their purchase. However, on the other hand, there were just as many people who were dissatisfied with their purchase and suggested that you look elsewhere and pay more for a better performing 4K TV.

With such a mixed result of opinions, I suggest you head down to your local Best Buy to see if this TV is on display and check it out for yourself. And if you do decide to make a purchase, and then discover once you get it home you are not satisfied with the JU6390, you can always return it.

I’d like to take a moment and point out that the JU6390 is identical to the Samsung JU6400, this is according to Samsung’s customer support. What’s even more interesting is that most of the consumer reviews for this TV on BestBuy.com are very positive. In addition, customer reviews for the JU6400 on Amazon.com are also very favorable. This is why I generally use consumer reviews as point of reference. I then make my own and final assessment of a particular TV on whether or not it is or will be a good and satisfying fit for myself.

  • Got this tv but haven’t opened it yet. Needed to know more about it. Refresh rate, picture quality, sound quality, performance, consumer rating. Needed to know if worth the money.

    • Hi JDAnderson,
      As my post states above, I did not do a review on this TV. I did what I call a product profile (info article). So I can’t answer your question regarding its performance. And as far as the customer ratings on this TV, I see they are no longer available on Best Buy’s website. But as I mentioned above, this TV received mixed reviews from customers when the customer reviews were available for viewing. By the way, I can tell you the refresh rate is 60Hz.
