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.

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 'd like to share my opinion about Samsung 32h5500 Smart TV.
You can put it on TV stand or attach to a wall using Wall mounting bracket with VESA 200 x 200 specs. This particular model is perfect for everybody who have an internet service provider ( to take advantage of Smart TV features). The sound is very good, clear and loud enough , considering speakers less then 1.9" in diameter. When changing the channels you may notice increase or decrease of sound volume. All commercials are much louder. You can change audio setting to AUTO LEVEL - ON. Unfortunately this setting works only with TV speakers not with external speakers.
For those who want great sound -a sound bar with subwofer or even better -a home theater system is a solution. Keep in mind, for a good quality sound system you could pay at least two times or more then you have paid for Samsung UN32H5500. This is an excellent TV set. From the way it looks,picture quality with a lot of option for internet users. Remote control is easy to use.If you have many remote controls - great solution is replacing them with Logitech HARMONY ONE rechargeable remote control. It will replace all of them.
NETFLIX and YOUTUBE streaming without problem. You can read on TV screen E-manual, by finding it in the MENU or by downloading PDF file of TV manual to PC from Samsung official website.
Few things about setup. If you not sure how to do setup from the point when you need establish connection of TV with your router- you can skip this part of setup and do it later.. But if you want to try: be sure that you know the MAC address of your Smart TV and password for your router. Update software when you finish setup and have connection to internet.
I'm sure you won't regret buying Samsung UN32H5500 Smart TV because it is a Smart Choice.
