Samsung D5520 (UE40D5520) review

 

With superb Internet features, punchy pictures and a gorgeous design, the 40-inch Samsung UE40D5520 is a corking LED TV. At around £550, it's also a real bargain.

Good black levels ; Colours have real impact ; Great Internet features ; Low price tag

Audio could be better ; Slight backlight inconsistencies

The Samsung UE40D5520 puts in such a strong performance across the board that we think you'd struggle to find better value for money elsewhere. Its pictures have real punch and clarity, the line up of Internet and media-streaming services is superb,...

Recommended!

Samsung UE40D5520

 

Pretty-boy looks, excellent picture quality, and a strong feature set all for under £530? Surely Samsung's UE40D5520 must have a catch somewhere...

Phenomenally cheap ; Good all-round picture quality ; Very easy on the eye

Audio struggles when pushed hard ; No Skype or web browser ; Very slight (but containable) backlight clouding

While there are plenty of other perfectly decent affordable 40in TVs out there this year, the UE40D5520 is clearly the best of the bunch we've seen to date - despite being also one of the most affordable.

What more to say that 5 stars doesn't say. Was drawn to the Samsung range from other reviews and love the designs. This is great and for the money I couldn't be any more pleased. Highly recommended.

In a word - excellent

 

A super quality picture, things look so real in HD. The back lit LED is so good. Sound not bad for such a slim line TV, but would probably be better if connected to a home cinema system. Found that connecting a DVD or video player a bit confusing, but...

sound could be a little clearer

Happy!

 

We only bought the TV a week ago so still getting used to it all all of it's functions. Only one grumble so far is that it is very difficult to see the on/off touch button as the symbol is tiny and is a dark colour on the black glass. Otherwise we are...
