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

Abstract:
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.

Pros:
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.

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

Picture- Samsung great for a 60 Hz TV; Web Browser- MANY freezes and crashes due to limited memory (1 Gb); Appearance- Outstanding for an entry level HDTV (.3" bezels give the look of a much higher end set): Price- Amazon great ($478 !!!). I must add one very important observation made through MANY hours of personal experience- Samsung tech support and customer service are by far the WORST I have ever dealt with, among the dozens of companies I have direct experience with. All aspects of these often critical departments are WOEFULLY lacking, so if you are a novice end user who may not be very technologically adept, consider purchasing an LG product instead. The LG picture is almost as good, the value is comparable, and the support staff (based on my limited interaction) is far superior to Samsung.

Display: The display is beautifully vibrant, nothing new from Samsung. Almost perfectly calibrated out of the box in my opinion. Motion is handled pretty well for only 60hz, but I'm no refresh rate guru so feel free to check a more professional review ;)

Sound: This tv's sound is louder and clearer than any other tv in my house. The speakers deliver plenty of volume, enough to easily fill a large bedroom without distortion. What really surprised me was the existence of a low end. Unlike tvs I've had in the past, this one has decent bass for music listening and gaming. For a tv this thin, the sound is hard to beat.

Smarts: This is a hit of miss for me. The smart tv interface is simple. The quad core processor still leaves speed to be desired. Netflix takes about 8-10 secs to boot. There are plenty of apps to download, though most are throw aways. The web browser is decent, although cumbersome to navigate. Unfortunately, navigating most of the smart interface is slow thanks to the "simple" remote included. Trying to search for a movie or a website is a pain. My suggestion is to get a good wireless usb keyboard if you really want to speed things up. Wifi speeds are decent (using Comcast 50mbps) but my Chromecast still seems faster for streaming.The screen mirroring is by far my favorite feature. Works well with all my android devices and my Windows 8 laptop. Update: Youtube app lags and crashes (I blame the poor app not Samsung). DLNA streaming works well too.

Xtras: The ir blaster works great with my Comcast box, requiring one less remote on my nightstand. HDMI-CEC (Anynet+) works perfectly with my Chromecast, PS3, PS4. You can turn a device on, or have the devices turn the tv on, switch inputs automatically, etc.

I got this TV, this week. I have a Verizon HD box from my Verizon TV provider. I plugged this TV in, set up was pretty much painless.

(((If you're using the Verizon HD box, you have to make sure you put the setting on 1080, just go in the settings on the Verizon box, through the "Menu" button on the remote and make sure that is on. Because 720p was selected. Not the settings on the TV, the TV will pick up the 1080 automatically, this is just for Verizon users on there Verizon HD box. If you don't have a Verizon Fios HD box for TV, ignore this. Although if you have cable box, I would check it also. The highest you can play on Verizon FIOS is 1080i)))

Anyway, the TV has stunning picture quality, really nice.

I don't use the apps too much and might have to comment more when I start to use them, but I used this with Youtube, and to get it to work, you log into Youtube on your computer and you type in the code that the TV gives you, you'll see the directions. After it syncs the 2, when you're on your computer watching youtube vids, there is a little button next to the button on Youtube vids where you can "Make it Full screen" to the right it says "Play on TV", you just hit that button and Youtube will play right on the Samsung.

There is also a Youtube app that works fine also. But sometimes I find it easier to search on the computer and then stream it right to the TV.

This TV has the quad core processor, which is suppose to give it a bit more speed loading stuff (apps,etc.). The 2 previous models before it the "Samsung UN32F5500" had a dual core processor (2013 model) and before that the Samsung UN32EH5300 (2012 model) had just a single processor.

If I use the apps more, I will come back to update.
