Samsung UE46ES5500

 

the functionality is great, compatible with all my devices and so far all the file types I put to it. It even gives my reminders over any movies or games I'm playing which is handy.

The remote is very temperamental, I seem to have to point in random directions until the TV responds. Would have preferred if it was ready to go instead I needed to by an additional device before I could use many of the smart functions.

Good size clear screen

I have been delivered a faulty TV with a line through the picture. Samsung only offered a repair which I refused. I am still waiting for a replacement.

Samsung UE40ES5500

 

Excellent picture quality, easy to set up and use.

The unit is so slim it is a shame that the power cord and two of the HDMI sockets face rearward meaning that you cannot fit it as flush to the wall as you could if they came out at right angles.

Consumer review by: Amanda (reevoo.com)

Samsung UE40ES5500

 

Smart design, ease of use, picture quality, and slim frame.

No bad points, sound quality good for a TV, but as you would expect not to top spec Hi Fi standards. We bought a Samsung sound bar to go with this TV which is excellent.
