Review for:
Samsung UN40H5500 Slim 40-inch 1080p 60Hz Smart LED TV.

I bought this TV shortly after it was available on Amazon. The smart features are excellent. However, I had a variety of problems with two TVs before I purchased a third which was flawless. I have been updating my review here to share what has been going on with the TVs and the returns.

Excellent CPU. Previous model had a dual core, this one has a quad core, which means the smart features are faster. The features are excellent. It is true that you can watch Netflix, Amazon videos, browse the internet, and so much more. All smart features work well, except some times that the Youtube app is laggy and prone to crashes (I don't blame the TV on this, but it is more of the app version which is different from one you would see on a smart phone). I do like some features of the Youtube app which allow me to create playlists on my smart phone and watch them on the TV. The Netflix app was recently upgraded and it works even better now, if you like Netflix or Amazon videos, specially if you have Amazon prime, you need one of these TVs. The network card, the hardware component that allows you to connect to your home's wireless network, is perfect. You can connect to 2g or 5g WLAN. Storage on the TV is good, but really you should use an external Hard Drive for home movies and pictures you wish to stream or if you can connect it to your home PC and stream from there. This TV is essentially a computer, so you can always plug in a mouse and keyboard and browse the net. The Smart TV features are excellent, I recommend it.

I had to buy three TVs before I received one that was working as intended.

Size Name: 32-Inch Verified Purchase
Up front, I'm very pleased with this set. This is my second Samsung Smart TV, the other being the 2013 UN32EH5300 (another 32" model). This TV is definitely sharper and more responsive. I've found no reason to be disappointed with it, and would recommend it over the older model. The one feature that really shines is Smart View, which allows me to mirror what I'm watching on my tablet.

Setup was easy, by simply plugging it in it came on and started in setup mode. As soon as I connected it to my home network, it searched for and found a firmware update and installed it. The TV supports wired as well as 2.4GHz and 5GHz WIFI. Adding the cable channels came next and went without a hitch as well. Finally I added my Amazon Prime, again with no issues. The only downside was that this model does not support the TCW Cable Viewer, allowing me to watch all of my HD digital subscription channels without a cable box (my UN32EH5300 does support the app).

The picture is bright and clean, the blacks are black, and darker colors/areas in the image are not muggy. The sound is fine for me, but I'm no audiophile like some of the other reviewers seem to be. After watching a couple of hours of cable, I streamed an episode of a show via Amazon prime and followed up by streaming a video off of my NAS (with built in Media Server), I didn't have any (TV related) issues with either streaming source. My network was stable the whole time, so I didn't experience any brief drops that required the TV to recover the video stream.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this TV. My only issues are with the lack of the TWC Cable Viewer App support (mildly aggravated); and stylistic differences between the remote and the Smart TV interface on this TV and my older UN32EH5300. These issues are minor, and not worth pulling a star for.

Size Name: 32-Inch
We actually purchased this tv somewhere else. It's a really good set, with an easy set-up, and a nice clean picture. That said, it has several limitations, which convince us it's not worth 5 stars.

Here are some tips that might make your viewing experience a bit easier.

- As others have mentioned, there is no need to use the artificial-looking "Dynamic", under Picture Mode. We choose "Standard", but you will see what you like.

- It might also help to toy with the Advance Settings under Picture mode. If you are sitting down to watch a movie, it's worth it to fine tune things. Each show varies in it's broadcast quality, so you might have to toy with the settings, at various times. These visual differences existed with the traditional tube TVs, but it's more noticeable now, because the modern visuals are so much clearer.

- It's good to remember that although this set is 1080p capable, this is assuming you are watching a telecast which actually presents it's programming in that format. A moderate number of current shows televise in 720p, and some of the older movies broadcast in 420p. Your local news programs and many contemporary movies will give you the capability of using the 1080p to it's greatest benefit. We are not talking about any adjustments you need to make, but we are speaking of the limitations of the individual broadcast itself.

- When using head phones, the volume remains stationery. It cannot be adjusted, even when using a capable (volume-adjusting) headset. You cannot use Mute with the headphones. This is frustrating. Maybe more importantly, the overall audio quality of this tv is lacking, and not too much above average. This tv (and maybe nearly all modern TV sets) practically require you to purchase outside sound equipment.
