Samsung UN32D5500

 

The Samsung UN32D5500 has a rather high MSRP of $699, considering it's only a 32-inch TV. There are some “premiums upgrades” you're paying for, like LED backlighting, dynamic contrast ratio, and a faster refresh rate. Of course, we use the word...

Great color and contrast performance ; Attractive design and usability

Expensive for a 32-inch TV ; Narrow viewing angle

The Samsung UN32D5500 is a 32-inch TV in a sea of less expensive 32-inch TVs. Some of the competition is bargain-basement garbage, but there are plenty of excellent 32-inch TVs we’ve reviewed that offer equally good performance for less than the $699...

Samsung UN40D5500 Review – 40-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

The model looks ordinary and simple, when one compares it to the other models launched by Samsung under other advanced series. It does not offer some of the most advanced feature like 3D HD support and wireless internet access through built in Wi-Fi....

The model further scores low for not providing any option to access the internet. When most of the latest TV sets offer smart wireless internet access through built in Wi-FI support, this model does not even support the traditional wired method of...

Not 120Hz! 120 CMR! :-(

 

I should have gotten a Sony Bravia which has a true 120Hz panel.

Good colors. Vibrant. Looks great

False advertising. Not 120Hz like Newegg's title says. It's Samsung's 120 CMR (Clear motion rate). It's all about marketing. I tried for a few days to get it to run at 120Hz instead of 60Hz and it is not possible. At least Best Buy got it right...
