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

We make no apologies for discussing the latest and greatest 4k and OLED TVs, but we're keenly aware of how wide the appeal is of a good-value 42-inch telly – and that's precisely what this Samsung is all about.

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...
