February 2011
Samsung's UN40D5500 LED HDTV delivers brilliant LED picture quality on a 40-inch display. And your options are not limited to television or connected devices: Samsung's ConnectShare Movie technology lets you plug in a thumb drive or other USB device and play media files using your remote to control it all. Or, you can connect to your home network and stream music, video, or picture files from DLNA certified devices. Regardless of your entertainment choices, the UN40D5500 dependably delivers a clear and captivating picture in Full HD 1080p resolution. Even when it's off, it's easy on the eye, with a slim bezel, sleek form factor, and Samsung's "Touch of Color" design.

Samsung UN40D5500
Brilliant LED picture quality and a wealth of entertainment options.
Slim and Stylish LED HDTV

LED backlighting is not only more energy-efficient than its CCFL counterpart, it allows for a slimmer television design, allowing the UN40D5500 to check in at just over an inch deep without its stand. Samsung's slim bezel design adds to the visual appeal, making this display almost all screen, and a worthy addition to most any room.

The UN40D5500 also features Samsung's "Touch of Color" design, which blends a hint of amber color into the traditional piano black bezel frame, for eye-catching style even when your TV is turned off.

1080p Full HD With Four HDMI Inputs

The UN40D5500 delivers Full HD 1080p resolution, for a superb level of detail and clarity in your picture. To connect your sources, four HDMI inputs are provided, for delivering a Full HD picture and audio over a single cable.

Exceeds ENERGY STAR Standards

The UN40D5500 taps into the energy efficiency of LED backlighting, and exceeds the strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and US Department of Energy by up to 50%. That means you get lower utility costs, and a smaller carbon footprint.

Samsung UN40D5500 ConnectShare
Samsung's ConnectShare lets you easily connect a thumb drive or digital camera via USB and enjoy videos, music, or picture files.
Samsung UN40D5500 Wide Color Enhancer Plus
Wide Color Enhancer Plus delivers the entire spectrum of color and luminance for rich, saturated images with intense detail.
ConnectShare Movie

Connect a thumb drive or digital camera quickly and easily via the UN40D5500's USB port. An intuitive, user-friendly interface allows access to videos, music, or pictures via the remote.

AllShare DLNA Networking

For even more entertainment options, the UN40D5500 lets you connect to your home network and stream music, videos, and photos from other DLNA Certified devices (your computer, network storage drive, etc.).

Wide Color Enhancer Plus

The challenge of any TV screen is to recreate reality through color and light. Samsung takes on this challenge with their Wide Color Enhancer Pro feature. After analyzing each pixel, it stretches them to their 3-dimensional limit. What you get is the entire spectrum of color and luminance for rich, saturated images with intense detail.

Audio Performance

SRS' TheaterSound, available in new Samsung HDTVs, is an all-in-one audio suite that directly addresses the three most common consumer TV audio complaints--inconsistent volume levels, unintelligible vocals, and poor, dimension-less sound. SRS helps ensure you get the most out of the UN40D55000's two 10-watt speakers, and additional technologies like Dolby Digital Plus and support for multi-channel sound (MTS) add even more on the sonic side of things.

Anynet+ (Anynet Plus)

Anynet+ is a function that operates through HDMI jacks, allowing you to control up to twelve Samsung devices with your Samsung TV remote. Note that Anynet+ can only be used with Samsung devices that have the Anynet+ feature.

PC Connectivity

The UN40D5500 also features a PC input, so you can use it as a computer monitor.

I purchased this exact TV at Sam's Club but thought I would leave a review here. I have owned the TV for about 6 months and have had quite a bit of time to play around with everything so I thought I would write a quick review.

Picture:
First off, the picture quality on this TV is excellent. I can't say I'm a picture purist or anything but everything I have plugged into this TV looks good. Blu-ray movies through my PS3 look great. PS3 games also look great. I have even had good luck with lower quality sources such as my old VCR (yes, I still own one) and older video game systems such as my PS1. There are some picture filters which help to clean up some of the noise from lower quality sources and my older Sony 47' LCD doesn't clean them up as well. The one drawback I will say is that if there is only one item on an entirely black screen, such as a video game menu or something, the whole screen will be pretty dim due to the way LED dimming works. I think this is probably true of most LED TV's and is different than my regular Sony LCD so I thought I would point it out.

Audio:
Audio quality is pretty good for such a thin TV. The speakers are not visible from the front and sound much better than my older Sony. I'll probably still end up getting a sound bar since I am an audio purist. The one thing that really irks me in this department is no headphone jack. There is an audio out but that doesn't work well for headphones at all. This problem is not only with Samsung, many newer TV's have omitted a headphone jack. How much could it possibly cost to add? I'm sure many people would find it convenient.

Other:
Do not pay for the overpriced Samsung wireless network adapter. I used the Rosewill RNX-N1 from newegg for roughly $25 and it works perfectly.

Let me first say that this is the first time I have ever bought an HDTV let alone an LED TV. So I may not be an expert but I will tell you like I see it.

Picture quality: I am finding that the picture is incredibly clear. I tend to watch quite a bit of sports and it makes following the baseball, hockey puck, etc so much easier. The refresh rate is only 60 mHz but it doesn't blur at all so it is great. I also bought a Blu Ray player and it looks really good on this TV.

Glare: The biggest thing I noticed with this TV is that there is virtually no glare. I used to be able to see myself in my old TV while it was on because there was a lamp beside me. I can't even see a hint of myself, let alone the lamp. Amazing!

Sound: I don't have a surround sound system as of yet but I am happy with the sound quality from the TV. It is nothing amazing but it certainly does the job and sounds good.

Setup: I found that it was very easy to setup, even for someone who knows practically nothing about TV's.

From what I have used on this TV so far I have been extremely happy with. Well done Samsung!

I was excited to get this TV for Christmas, but that excitement faded pretty quickly.

Pros:
-thin
-light
-bright
-relatively (compared to plasmas) miserly power consumption
-(mostly) aesthetically pleasing (aside from the "touch of color," which is red in this case)

Cons:
-auto-dimming "feature": Out of the box, this tv seems to have good blacks, but the only way this is achieved is through automatically dimming the backlight when a dark scene is on the screen. This gets pretty annoying with dark movies such as Harry Potter 7. When I tried watching this in a low-light environment, the TV would crank up the brightness significantly during the brighter scenes and dial it way down during the dark ones. The result was that some scenes were painfully bright and others were so dim it was difficult to make out details. This is also a problem with video game consoles and the TV's own menu interface and other interface elements. For example, the PS3's interface is often white text on a dark background -- this tv turns the white text gray due to the dim backlighting in those instances. Star fields in sci and sci-fi are comprised of very dim stars too. The only way to turn this feature off is to switch the video mode to "movie." The trouble with that is if you bought the tv to sometimes play videogames, you can't use the low-latency game mode in conjunction with movie mode, so it will dim and brighten your games when it feels it's appropriate to do so. Also, movie mode makes everything look pretty washed out and greenish compared with the other modes.
-brightness uniformity: Like I mentioned, if you don't want the auto-dimming to annoy you, "movie" mode is essential.

It was relatively easy to set up. Pretty much plug and play, even though I got turned around once or twice. The instructions were pretty clear, but left out 1 or 2 little things.
