Samsung UN40F5500AF

 

Samsung's F5500 LED HDTVs deliver a picture with excellent colors and strong contrast along with plenty of online features, all for a very reasonable price.

Excellent color. Strong contrast. Lots of connected features.

Black levels could be better.

The Samsung F5500 series of LED HDTVs offers a very good picture and an impressive array of smart services and features. It isn't the darkest panel, and it doesn't offer 3D, but for the price, you get a lot of screen. If you want a bigger picture and...

Samsung UN40F5500AF

 

Samsung's F5500 LED HDTVs deliver a picture with excellent colors and strong contrast along with plenty of online features, all for a very reasonable price.

We test HDTVs with a Klein K10-A colorimeter, SpectraCal’s CalMAN 5 diagnostic software, and DisplayMate test patterns with a basic dark room calibration for brightness and contrast. The F5500 gets satisfyingly bright at 316.360 cd/m2, but it doesn’t...

tv worked inconsistently within first year, now doesn't work at all after two years

 

Will never buy a Samsung tv again. A tv shouldn't be unusable within two years of purchase

thin screen

tv randomly shut off while watching and would sometimes restart, sometimes now. it now does it everytime I attempt to watch the tv and will often not go back on (just keeps cycling on/off/on and only shows Samsung icon). have gone on line and found...

Superb Television

 

I purchased neweggs extended warranty and it's higher than most. It would be nice if it were less expensive!!

I've had this tv for almost a month...magnificent color and sound! Absolutely no complaints. Newegg shipped it next day at no additional cost because I used my newegg preferred account...great terms too!

Great Specs, Great TV

 

I bought this TV for my wife and I as a Christmas gift. I replaced an old LCD 32" TV which just fit in the nook above my fireplace. More TV in a smaller space! The setup was easy including the Wi-Fi connection. It works so good with my Comcast cable TV...

Great features especially for a 40" screen. The scaled down basil allows the TV to fit in a smaller space, Very light and easy to mount. Sound is not bad and not what you'd expect from a smaller TV. Looks really nice above my fire place in the bedroom....

The browser is annoying to use with the remote although you get mouse like functionality. I need to look into a keyboard and mouse that works with this TV and I see another $100.00 to spend. The motion camera is not included and cost close to $100.00....

Great TV

 

Great engine, love smart tv, beautiful picture. To the guy who thinks the 120hz clear motion rate is a mistake; its a 60hz refresh rate, but samsung uses a technology called clear motion rate to upscale the refresh rate to 120. So the specs are 100%...

none!

A nice picture and it works well

 

The set arrived when expected, set up was easy and it works well. What more could be said? I have not tried whatever extra features it may have since all I wanted is a good functioning and reliable unit.

Problem with WiFi out of the box

 

New product, they still may need to work out some bugs?!

Nice picture. Light weight. Thin.

The WiFi finds my network but will not connect. Called Samsung Tech support, first level no help. Was told second level will return my call. No return call after 2 days.
