Great question! Regardless of the TV's technological profile, just about any device that offers HDMI, RCA, Component and even Optical connections will be compatible with the Samsung TVs. This means 3D and 2D BD players, standard DVD players, video game systems, and even older technology like VCRs will be compatible with the Samsung TVs.

I returned my 6400 because the Ethernet port died after 2 weeks. I upgraded to 6500 because the integrated WiFi in case the Ethernet port dies in the future. The only other difference is the 6400 has a tray load & the 6500 sucks the DVD in (like a Macintosh PC)

Some of the differences between the D6420 and the D6500 are:

1. The D6500 offers Skype connectivity and comes included with the QWERTY remote control, while the D6420 does not.

2. WiFi is built into the D6500, while the D6420 does not offer built in WiFi.

I'm sorry for the confusion; however, the UN40D6420 will in fact offer an ethernet input as well as WiFi connectivity with a Samsung Linkstick (WIS09ABGN).

You can convert 2D to 3D. It is not as good as a 3D movie but it still looks great!

We get 3D movies in HD direct from our cable provider. 2D movies can be "upsampled" to simulated 3D. Not quite as good as a Blu-Ray

Although the UN40D6420 will offer a 2D to 3D conversion engine, for true 3D playback, a 3D BD Player would be necessary.

Not sure what you mean by a remote for a 3D TV. The remote provided by Samsung provides everything you need in the remote to run the 3D features on this TV. If your DvD player has WiFi already you can choose to use it vs the TV to enable Netflix/Pandora (assuming the DvD player has those apps). If the DvD player does not have those apps, you have two choices for the TV... Buy a WiFi adapter or connect using the RJ-45 (ethernet) port on the TV. Obviously some may have a problem doing this as they may not have ethernet ports coming from the router of their Internet Service Provider. I personally have AT&T U-Verse, which provides Internet, and each box serves as a bridge which allows me to use an ethernet cable from the box to my TV (my Blu-Ray player has built-in WiFi). There are also ways to bridge Internet connections from your router through the electrical system in your house as well. A ~$50 device can take care of this by connecting one side (via ethernet cable) to a device which plugs into the wall outlets. On the other side (near the TV), you have another one which plugs into an outlet and then you connect it to the TV using another ethernet cable. Obviously the easiest way to get Internet to you TV is buy sucking up the cost of the WiFi adapter.

I'm sorry for the confusion. All of the new in box Samsung TVs will come included with a remote control. Additionally, since the Samsung devices cannot share a network connection between each other, you will need to connect a separate network connection to the TV for internet content connectivity (either with an Ethernet cable to a wired network, or wirelessly with a Samsung Linkstick).

All current generation Samsung TVs are digital cable and Antenna ready. All of our TVs include a coax ATSC/QAM tuner that handles digital and analogue broadcast signals as well. No external boxes or equipment needed to view your basic cable. An antenna is required for over the air broadcasts. Premium service may require additional equipment and fees. Please contact your service provider for details.

The speakers on the UN40D6420 are down firing speakers located at the bottom of the TV. These speakers allow for a sleek outer design while preserving audio quality and should still work perfectly while the TV is mounted in a cabinet.

No, it does not have built in wi-fi. You will need the 70 dollar plugin module (usb). I hooked mine up hard wired as I wanted to get the best possible streaming. I do have built in wifi on the Samsung 3D BlueRay player I purchased at the same time. So I am covered either way. that is an option, but you have to use the apps through the blueray then not the TV. It is redundant I admit, but I can always move that blueray player to a non smart TV.

It comes with a standard remote, which is not bad for navigating. It also works with the free iphone app from samsung. The app gives you all the cool features and I think more than you would get from the qwety keyboard.
