Samsung UN40H5500AFXZA

 

The Samsung UNH5500AFXZA series of midrange LED HDTVs deliver good picture quality, but also demand a premium price compared with similarly equipped screens in the same size range.

Solid performance. Good color accuracy. Sleek styling.

Comparatively expensive. Mediocre black levels.

Conclusion There's no doubt that Samsung's UN40H5500AFXZA is a quality HDTV, as it offers good color accuracy, and while the black level and contrast ratio aren't stellar, the viewing experience is still very solid. It's when we compare the Samsung's...

Samsung UN40H5500 Smart LED TV

 

The UN40H5500 LED TV is a direct replacement of the F5500 series from last year. The biggest improvements are under the hood. Mainly, the quad core processor driving the smart TV features. This is a big jump in computing power.

Samsung UE40H5500

 

At last, another really cheap TV we actually like

Outstanding value for money ; Good picture quality for a budget set ; Comprehensive Smart TV system

Some missing shadow detail after calibration ; A little motion blur ; Some noise over fine details

Finally we’d recommend turning off noise reduction while watching anything HD, as it tends to do more harm than good.

Samsung UE40H5500 (H5500) TV Review

 

Samsung's entry level Smart TV smashes the competition in terms of value, picture quality and Smart TV features

Great Pictures ; Fabulous Smart TV features ; Incredible value

Minor panel banding ; Viewing angles are narrow

Despite its rather run of the mill appearance, the Samsung UE40H5500 produces beautiful pictures and holds within a set of smart features that are the envy of many a flagship television. This is a TV which outperforms both its rank and current...
