Samsung UE42F5000 review

 

This low-priced 42-inch TV is let down by poor performance

Freeview HD interface ; USB digital file support ; Low price

Endemic motion blur ; Poor contrast ; Soft images ; Two HDMI slots

Samsung TVs of all prices are usually very reliable, but the UE42F5000 is an exception; endemic motion blur, poor contrast and LED light leakage make this a great argument for spending more – or buying an entry-level plasma.

Samsung UE42F5000

 

A top-notch 42-inch TV for less than £400. Bargain.

Incredible value ; Good all-round picture quality ; Impressively adaptable to different viewing environments

No online functionality ; No 3D (if you see that as a problem!) ; Rather lightweight build quality

For serious HD movie viewing you need to slash the backlight down to as low as 7 or 8 to get the best balance between black level depth and shadow detail; nudge the contrast down to around 82; and turn off all the noise reduction systems to make sure...
