This TV is horrible

 

This Tv has horrible picture quality....save your money and get a D Series with 120hz or better.....even with high quality HDMI and line noise filter surge protection it is grainy......there are better looking plazma Tv's out there.....Samsung is a great company, just not this model!

Attractive design

Poor sound, Poor picture quality

Samsung UN32C5000 Review – 32-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

The UN32C5000 is part of Samsung's 32” Class 5000 series, which means it's one of the manufacturer's 1080p LED HDTVs. Although it may not sport a particularly large screen, there are still plenty of fine features to recommend it.

Samsung’s UN32C5000 proves that bigger is not always better. But better is always better.

Samsung UN46C5000 Review – 46-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

This UN46C5000 television is part of Samsung's 5000 series, and is a 1080p LED HDTV. And there is much to recommend with this HD television. And while 46 inches doesn't sound all that large in our modern big screen era, this model is actually the...

Samsung 46″ Series 5 LED TV 46C5000

 

After the movies like Avatar, TV manufacturers really pushed the idea of bringing 3D display to homes. However, not everyone needs new and expensive technology. Sometimes we need to go back to the basic and make sure it works flawlessly. Today, we have...

Excellent picture quality, ready out of the box ; LED Backlight significantly reduces power consumption ; Stunning in the living room

Still waiting for complete LED display and not just LED backlit

This may only be our first 2010 Samsung TV review but it certainly won’t be the last. The use of LED technology is one that will stay. It significantly reduces power consumption over traditional CCFL LCDs and improves the overall picture quality one...

Samsung UN46C5000

 

Bought opened box for $1150.00 ,Could not pass it up . Previous owner did not like the picture . You must adjust this TV , it has several mode levels .Has four different black level settings as well .

Owned this Tv for a week now. Excellent picture and clarity . Read that LEDs have no better quality than regular backlighted LCDs .Do not beleive it ,no comparison . It is easy to setup

No big issue , some uneven backlighting at the corners. Only noticed when sceen is dark ,common on all LCDs . Increasing the black level ,helps

Excellent LED Monitor for the buck

 

I use this set for all my Blue ray movies as well as for my instant Netflix activity all with excellent results. I did extensive research online prior to making this purchase and decided anything above 60hz was just plain foolish. I now have this...

Cosmetically it's one of the best looking sets out there. Picture quality, it's incredible. For a 46" LED at $1300.00 it's a remarkable deal. My Blu Ray player automatically switches over to 24hz giving the film an image quality that's top notch

None to date

Product Specifications

Anyone can say they have the clearest picture. But only Full HD 1080p has twice the detail and twice the resolution of regular HDTV. It delivers dazzlingly, rich color and vivid details. And even corrects the errors from standard definition content. It's definitely not your father's HD. Whoever said it's all in the details would have appreciated mega contrast. It intuitively adjusts the LED backlight for every frame. Whites are more pristine. Shades of blacks are pure. And the depths of every color are brilliantly pronounced. It's a perfect marriage of technology and art. Samsung HDTVs are easy on the planet - and on your eyes. The unique Eco sensor measures the intensity of the room's light and automatically calibrates the brightness of the image on the screen. In a brightly lit environment, the picture brightness grows even brighter, and in dim surroundings, brightness is reduced. So now you're not wasting energy on a bright screen when it isn't needed. Enjoy the best picture possible with a TV that's aware of its surroundings.
