It has little competition in its price bracket when it comes to features thanks to its inclusion in Samsung’s Smart TV product range.
Of course if you are just looking for solid picture quality then this is also present and correct, although the Samsung UE37D5520 LED TV reviewed here is a much more complex beast.

Get ready to enhance your TV viewing experience with Smart TV
2011 has been the year in which the Samsung UE37D5520 and its siblings have got access to the brand new Smart TV platform.
Previous models had offered some online access but Smart TV is Samsung’s first true attempt to make the most out of the broadband connections which many more consumers now have at home.
With Smart TV you can use the Samsung UE37D5520 to download apps, surf the web, stream video and chat to friends, all using the remote and without the requirement of an intervening computer to get the job done.
You can sit back and stay in touch using Twitter, Facebook or instant messaging, before flicking over to the YouTube app to see what videos are trending.
You can then start up the BBC iPlayer app and watch that episode of The Apprentice that you missed and finally open the standalone web browser to search for a product on eBay.
Please note that the UE37D5520 does not feature the fully interactive web browser that is available on its high end models.
You will no longer need to sit with a laptop getting hotter and hotter on your thighs if you want to go online and watch TV in your living room.
The Samsung UE37D5520 and its Smart TV features will win over any sceptics, provided you have the means to get an Ethernet cable from your broadband router to the back of the TV or do not mind investing in a Wi-Fi dongle which is sold separately.
