Watch the action on a 46 inch Full HD Panel

The Samsung UE46D5520 is not a LED TV designed to boast about its features on the outside.
Its 46 inch LCD panel is definitely on the large side, featuring a 1080p full HD resolution and a 100Hz refresh rate to ensure that fast moving video is not impacted by blurred, watery onscreen reproduction.

Whether you are watching a Blu Ray movie or viewing free to air HD broadcasts the Samsung UE46D5520 will perform well and even non-HD sources can be brought up to scratch thanks to its advanced image processing technology.

The UE46D5520 interacts online with special apps designed by Samsung

The thing that will keep you coming back to the Samsung UE46D5520 is its Smart TV functionality.

Once you have linked it to your home internet service via Ethernet or Wi-Fi dongle, the latter of which can be purchased separately, you can browse and ineract with a whole host of Samsung TV Apps.

Please note that the UE46D5520 does not feature the fully interactive web browser that is available on its high end models.

The Smart TV service extends into apps which can be added to the library of programs on the Samsung UE46D5520.

You can catch up with the past seven days of TV using the BBC iPlayer app, look at funny clips and music videos with the YouTube app, update your mates on your life with the Facebook app and even send messages out to your followers using the Twitter app.

Samsung is adding more and more apps to the service as time passes so the Smart TV capabilities of the Samsung UE46D5520 will continue to improve, making it a good long term investment.

If you are not going to use the Smart TV options straight away then there is plenty more to like about the Samsung UE46D5520.

Connects to virtually all your home entertainment equipment via USB and HDMI

It has four HDMI inputs, two USB ports and plenty of other connections for the various home entertainment devices you will have around the home.

You can add a digital camera or camcorder to the mix, connect your games console and view Blu Ray movies, all without filling up the available inputs and then having to mess around with wires around the back of the screen.

Final Thoughts

Despite the long list of features found on this TV it is by no means a bulky machine.

The LED backlighting means that it is only three centimetres thick and while it is an edge lit display there is no problem with inconsistent illumination as can be found on less capable LED TVs.

In short the Samsung UE46D5520 is a great option for someone who is looking for a future-proof LED TV without the desire to pay extra for 3D playback.
