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...

40" is a must. We had a 32" before and this tv is no bigger, it's all screen. Superb quality for the price. Highly recommend from Appliance Direct.

Viewing from a side angle, the picture lost a bit of definition.
