Samsung UE42F5500 review

 

An excellent value TV that isn't quite perfect

Smart Hub ; Digital file support ; Wi-Fi Low price ; Uniform brightness

Motion blur ; VideoHub app dominates ; Viewing angle ; Basic build quality

Great value TV, loaded with features and with a low price, the UE42F5500 is as near to a bargain as you'll find – but it's not perfect.

Samsung UE42F5500

 

A solid all-rounder made more appealing by some handy discount pricing

Good value for Smart TV, Good picture quality for the money, All the key UK catchup channels are supported

Black levels could be better, Flimsy build quality, Some unhelpful presets

Samsung UE42F5500AKX

 

Dead easy to set up start using with great picture quality.

As with most flat screen TV's the sound quality is not brilliant but is acceptable. This can be cured by using a Sound Bar connected to the TV.
