Samsung UE42F5500 review - this is one of the latest offers from Samsung in the 42-inch LED TV class. Samsung UE42F5500 is an affordable 42-inch Full HD Smart LED TV with nice clean and elegant Samsung One design and plenty of useful functions.
The UE42F5500 has very thin frame which helps it keep a relatively small dimensions for a 42-inch TV. The panel is also quite thin.
One of the mos important element of the TVs in this class is the picture quality and the 'behavior' of the LED panel in different conditions. Thankfully the Samsung UE42F5500 offers great Full HD 1080p picture quality, very good viewing angles and no backlight bleeding, ghosting or clouding effects. This TV relies on 100 Hz Clear Motion Rate and the popular Hyper Real Engine for improving the overall picture quality. Clean View and Wide Color Enhancer are two of the other technologies that are used in the UE42F5500.
The processing speed of all functions on the Samsung UE42F5500 is very fast thanks to the dual-core process technology which significantly improves the performance of most of the Smart TV features some of which used to take ages to load on older models Smart TVs.
Samsung UE42F5500 has a wide variety of Smart TV applications and built-in WiFi with WiFi direct. You can easily use this TV for browsing the Internet, using the social apps like Twitter, Skype and Facebook or just check out the latest videos on YouTube, the variety of Smart TV functions is just huge.
Samsung UE42F5500 has plenty other connection options like 3x HDMI v1.4, Component, RGB in, Scart in, Audio RCA (L/R) in, Optical out, 2x USB 2.0 (with media playback), CI Slot, RJ- 45 (Ethernet) and DLNA.
The sound quality provided by the 2x 10W speakers is also pretty good thanks to the Dolby Digital Plus/ Dolby Pulse and DTS premium audio technologies. But for best experience on such nice big screen I would always recommend a better quality and more powerful external sound system.
The price for the Samsung UE42F5500 LED TV is pretty good considering this is a premium brand TV with plenty of useful features. You can find it for around 550 Euro (around £500 in UK) which places it right next to competitors like the LG 42LN575S / 42LN575V, Samsung UE42F5700 and Sony Bravia KDL-42W650.
