You can benefit from a high refresh rate, 1080p full HD resolution and stylish design if you choose the Samsung UE40D5000. Its 40 inch display size is also a good fit for anyone who wants to get the big screen thrills of the cinema transposed into their homes largely intact.
Note: Model Numbers Explained
The model reviewed here is available at various retailers but may have different model numbers shown on the LED TV’s in their store floor rooms or on their websites.
UE40D5000 – Dixons, 1staudiovisual, Currys, John Lewis
UE40D5000PWXXU – Comet, Laskys, Amazon, Woolworths
Strikingly thin – ready for wall mounting
The most striking thing about the Samsung UE40D5000 is that it is very slim, easily outdoing the standard LCD TVs which do not use LED backlighting.
It is also not too flash, despite its size, thanks to a finish which displays quality without being over the top. A thin bezel around the screen means it will not be a distraction when it is turned on and the stand goes along with this simple, stylish aesthetic.
In short, the Samsung UE40D5000 will be a welcome addition to any modern living space and can even be mounted on a wall to make it even less obtrusive.
40 inch Ultra Clear Panel
The Samsung UE40D5000PWXXU features a 40 inch Ultra Clear Panel which essentially allows all of the colours and the vibrant brightness of the image to be passed on to the viewer.
While some TVs can provide dull, lifeless hues, the Samsung UE40D5000 is quite the opposite and with its 100Hz Clear Motion Rate technology onboard it is also more than a match of busy images and fast moving camera pans that are typically found in live sports and the latest blockbusters.
It will be able to give you slick, seamless video without any of the juddering or blurring which can degrade the appeal of competing sets.
Get Freeview chanels
You will want to make full use of the 40 inch display’s 1080p HD resolution, so the presence of four HDMI inputs on the side will be a welcome sight.
Freeview is built into the Samsung UE40D5000 so you can plug in your existing aerial and get instant access to plenty of digital TV channels at no extra charge.
The UE40D5000PWXXU plays most file formats
Of course you do not just have to rely on devices with HDMI connections, like Blu Ray players and games consoles, to enjoy HD content on this model.
With a PC input and a USB connection you will be well equipped to get high def digital video and high resolution pictures onto the screen to view in your living room.
No more will you have to bring the family into the study to see your snaps and home movies on a dinky PC monitor, as the Samsung UE40D5000PWXXU is compatible with a large number of common file formats and playback is simple thanks to the intuitive menus.
Many people study the feature set of an LED TV carefully without considering whether it will actually be any good in the real world. Thankfully the Samsung UE40D5000 performs well on paper as well as in the living room, letting you buy with confidence.
