Samsung UE32ES5500 review

 

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 ES5500 is exciting to watch, but some rivals offer even more for the money

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.

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!

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 playback...

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.
