Samsung UN40C5000 Review – 40-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

This UN40C5000 television is the middle size in Samsung's 5000 TV series. Like the rest of the line, it's a 1080p LED HDTV. It's a great TV, too. From its clear picture and colors, to its ability to centralize your home entertainment, this is an...

There are just so many great features in this set. It’s certainly worth a look.

Samsung UN40C5000

 

The Samsung UN40C5000 ($1199 MSRP) is a 40-inch LCD TV. It comes just short of offering some of Samsung's best high-end features, but delivers on core performance and a few local networking features you might find handy

We're generally of fan of Samsung's entire line, as it seems to have fewer duds in the entry and mid-level level models than most manufacturers. The TV is stylish, sporting an ultra-thin frame that only LED backlighting is capable of. The menu...

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

The Samsung UN40C5000 ($1199 MSRP) is among the cheaper LED-backlit LCD models in Samsung 2010 line-up. We like the look and feel of the TV a great deal, but it’s not without it trade-offs.

Must have for gamers

 

So in response to the "blotchy picture" people the reason you aren't getting a crisp picture is because you aren't displaying a 1080p signal. Even the manual offers suggestions for ghosting and non-HD sources. This is common with every other HDTV I've...

AUX- out, Compatible w/ external hard drive, DVI/HDMI out, and did I mention it plays full 1080p from your hard drive? Look at first I was effy reading these reviews, but after purchasing this product i'm in shock with its abilities

Viewing angles are not great. Standard mode can have its mind of its own automatically tuning your picture. Also set up is a little annoying

I love the TV!

 

I find the picture great and I have not experienced any "blotching" in blacks as some of the other reviewers complained about

This is my first flat screen TV, so I have nothing to compare it to but my old clunker of a TV which I had for 20 years before it finally blitzed out, giving me the excuse for spending too much money! Sorry I cannot comment on technical aspects

Blotchy Picture.

 

I had the same problem as rylicious with the blotchy picture. All LCD or LED tv's have some degree of light bleed from the corners of the screen, but with this set it was all over the screen and it was very evident with dark scenes. I was not impressed...

Slim Design

Very Poor Control of the light bleed. Blotchy white spots spread all over the screen

Excellent TV

 

This is more or less a response to the review "Blotchy Picture" I too have the blotchy picture problem, but it is literally only when the whole screen is black, such as when you are on an input channel that is not receiving a signal. I have not once...

Amazing picture ; 4 HDMI ports ; Good Sound

There is nothing about this TV I don't love

Blotchy Picture

 

I couldn't find any reviews at all online so I thought I'd write my experience with the un40c5000 samsung led tv review here. It was definitely the prettiest 40 inch tv in the showroom. I had about 1300 i wanted to spend so I ended up bringing home...

I really liked the super slim design

The picture in dark screen/shots is really blotchy
