Samsung UE32ES5500

 

Exciting enough, but rivals offer even more for the money

Decent detail; vibrant colour; plenty of smart content; nice design and interface

Some picture noise; whites lack subtlety; rivals offer more insight

The UE32ES5500 faces direct competition from the Panasonic TX-L32E5B, where a relatively noise-free picture and subtler contrast give a more natural performance – but the Samsung is an exciting and feature-rich set that’s really worth a look.

Nice unit, well designed, nice to use ; Excellent range of interfaces which can be used on the unit ; Can use mobile phone app to manage but...(see below)

Samsung Allshare DLNA inbuilt software is shockingly awful and there's not much you can do ; Screensaver setup is weird. Can force it on when radio plays, is not needed for TV playback but because you can't force it on when doing extensive music...

Just brilliant - all round. I live in an area with supposedly no Freeview reception and my old TV with digibox gave me poor reception but now I have a brilliant picture for free

I like the slim design

Image is poor, and set up was not very easy to follow

Quite simply, the best TV I have ever owned

The endless march of the eco-warriors! It took me ages to discover why the damned machine turned itself off while recording a long film (say). then, I realised that one had to instruct it to ignore such eco-babble
