Featuring Samsung's Smart Hub TV and LED backlighting, the Samsung UE40ES5500 is a step up from the average TV.
LED BACKLIGHTING AND CLEAR RATE MOTION 100 FOR A VIVID PICTURE QUALITY
Samsung were one of the first manufacturers to offer LED backlight screens and are still amongst the most experienced. Key advantages to LED screens are slimmer depth and higher contrast. It can come as little surprise, then, to find the UE40ES5500 has one of the best pictures in its class. Samsung has combined a number of technologies to make the UE40ES5500 a class leader. In addition to the LED screen is Samsung's Wide Colour Enhancer Plus engine. This unique Samsung system offers far more natural and convincing colours by strengthening the red, green and blues. Also standard is Clear Rate Motion 100. Although this isn't the same as conventional 100Hz processing, it does claim to offer gains in motion clarity through measuring the chipset, TV panel and backlight. The UE40ES5500 certainly offers smooth motion, free from the blur of some of its 50Hz rivals.
CRISP AND CLEAR SOUND QUALITY
With a TV of this quality we'd always recommend a soundbar or separate AV system to get the best from it. If this isn't possible, though, you'll find the onboard sound surprisingly good for such a thin TV with little apparent space for the speakers. SRS TheatreSound HD gives a well-balanced sound that's surprisingly weighty for a TV but also clear, too. With a 2 x 10 Watt amplifier on board there's also enough power for larger rooms.
SMART TV FEATURING WEB BROWSER AND USB RECORDING
In addition to its enhanced picture quality, the Samsung UE40ES5500 also benefits from Samsung's Smart TV. This brings all the control and search options together in one central hub. Standard on this Smart TV are Samsung Apps which gives you access to popular sites such as YouTube and Facebook. There's also a full web browser, making this TV perfect for a bit of sofa-surfing. Allshare, powered by DLNA, lets you connect the TV up to your home network via Ethernet or optional Wi-Fi dongle. From here you can stream content from your PC or laptop, onto the big screen. Connect Share Movie teams up with the USB sockets to offer film, music or photos to be easily transferred from your digital media device to the TV's screen, via USB socket. One of the USB sockets also offers two-way recording. Simply connect a USB-equipped hard drive and use the Electronic Program Guide to make this a very handy PVR. In addition to the twin USB sockets there are also three HDMIs - perfect for connecting up a wide range of digital sources.
Matching class-leading picture quality with Smart TV, the Samsung UE40ES5500 is hard to fault.
