Samsung UN48H5500AFXZA

 

The Samsung UNH5500AFXZA series of midrange LED HDTVs delivers a good picture, but also demands a bit of a premium and a size compromise compared with similarly equipped screens.

Solid performance. Good color accuracy. Sleek styling.

Mediocre black levels. Pricey for the performance.

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 UE48H5500 review

 

A basic but big smart TV that punches above its weight

Speedy navigation ; Accurate, natural colours ; Smart Hub apps ; Standard definition upscalinh

Only three HDMI & two USB ; No 3D mode ; Some judder ; Shiny plastic look

The UE48H5500 is the best 48-inch TV for the price-conscious living room. Impressing with good colour and contrast, and both apps and navigation speed, it's a superb all-rounder going for a sweet price – though it does lack 3D.

Samsung UE48H5500 (H5500) TV Review

 

If you're not bothered about 3D or a fancy design, Samsung's entry-level Smart TV is an absolute bargain.

Great contrast ; Accurate colours ; Excellent smart features ; Superb price

Prosaic design ; Viewing angles aren't wide ; Some minor light spill

We think Samsung's UE48H5500 is tremendous value. In sheer picture quality terms, it’s more than a match for many TVs costing considerably more with great blacks, fantastic colours and excellent screen uniformity. What it lacks is a fancy design, any...

I really love my new Smart TV - I just wish I had more time to figure out all that it can do. I am a little older and not as computer savvy as I would like to be. I know my t.v. does a lot more than I even dream about. This weekend I plugged my shuffle...
