Item #: 30532E5000
This item is no longer available.
These days it seems like folks in the market for a 32" TV plan to use it as a second TV in a bedroom, kitchen or den. When you see the crisp, detailed picture of Samsung's UN32EH5000, you may find yourself spending more time with it than with your main TV. It has an LED backlight that combines snappy picture contrast with miserly power usage. The thin black bezel framing the screen gives this set an elegant, classy look.
This TV has two HDMI inputs for connecting high-definition gear, like a Blu-ray player, and an HD cable or satellite TV box. If you have movies or photos stored on a thumb drive you can plug it into the TV's USB port for quick, easy viewing.
It is great. Thje picture is clear and an upgrade from my previous TV.

It is great. Thje picture is clear and an upgrade from my previous TV.
Picture quality is great.
I bought this television specifically for gaming and movie purposes and for the price it is great. Games and Netflix looks great. Haven't hooked cable on it so not sure about tv quality.
Pros: Great price. Colors are vibrant and movies and games are perfect for this tv.
Cons: Wish there were more hdmi ports.
got it on sale....2 day ship....everything you wanted from a led tv
Pros: easy set up ......great picture....fast ship
this tv is just outstanding in every way.
Pros: great picture
Pros: easy setup
Great picture, easy set up, and even during the day with the sun shining in the window the picture is still good
Pros: Good picture and easy set up
Wow what a great TV. My Mom, who owns it, is extremely satisfied as I am with the professional service, delivery before the time suggested annd the great price. Merry Christmas to all.
Pros: Nice look, great TV easy to program and run
Cons: The sound that comes wwhen turning the TV off and on.
I am impressed with the picture and quality of this tv. If you are in need of a smaller tv without all the bells and whistles and a 60htz refresh rate this is it. I would suggest though that you measure the location of your set placement and check set sizes. With Samsung's thin bezel this gives you the option to get a larger set that would fit in a smaller space. Larger is Better. I must also state that the HD quality is outstanding (I have DirecTV) but this depends also on your source.
Pros: Direct-lit not Edge Lit, Size, Picture Quality.
Cons: Small Cheezy Remote
Excelent HD TV, great to buy!!
This a great tv with high end picture quality and good sound
Pros: Good price , great overall quality, very light and easy to handle even for a flat screen
Cons: Hdmi jacks on the side instead of in the back of the tv
The Television has a great picture, with avery clear, sharp image. It was a perfect size for the kitchen installation.
Pros: Sharp, clear HD picture.
We decided to try Samsung once again, lured in by a lower price and high ratings at a consumer magazine website. We use the TV with the QAM tuner, without a cable box, and find the on-screen programming especially difficult to navigate. If you're connected through a cable box and use features there, you should be fine.
Pros: Excellent picture quality Channel changes executed quickly
Cons: Hard to navigate options menu No ability to name the channels No on-screen program guide feature Unable to selet digital channels directly, only by the auto-program feature Small remote feels cheap. Backlight feature is insufficient
The television is a dream come true. I'd put off purchasing a flat screen because I was more than content with my 20-year-old RCA. Finally the laughter from friends was too much to ignore, and I read good things about the Samsung in Consumer Reports. I took the plunge and could not be more pleased. I've never had to adjust anything and don't even use the set's remote; the remote from the cable box takes care of my viewing needs. The set is so compact and light weight that a couple of people have actually measured it to make sure that I really had a 32" tv. To my everlasting relief and their astonishment, I did.
Pros: Weight, color, brightness, ease of use.
Cons: Sound is a bit low, but that's easily remedied.
Great product and as usual the best customer service around. I would and will recommend you and it to everyone I know
pro. Purchase this for a replacement for the wife Room, to replace broken unit. have only had a few weeks, Easy to setup, just plug and play Nice picture, wife is happy with set. con. none so for.
Happy with purchase. Fast, free shipping.
Pros: Top rated set has great picture and is easy to use. Sound is good for a flat screen.
Cons: I wanted to use HDMI, component, and composite inputs for my various peices of equipment. On this set, it is not possible to connect both the component and composite inputs at the same time becasuse there is only (1) set of audio inputs which is shared between them.
I am happy so far with the Samsung TV. This is the second one I've bought and was/am happy with my 52" that I bought previously. Its hard to say if I will like this TV but will know for sure in 6 months. As of now it works fine. The color is great!
Was looking for a 1080p 26 inch but they are far & view. Saw this 32 inch with a great picture/sound and I was sold!
Pros: Great picture & sound with HDMI. Easy set up.
Good tv but not as sharp as an led tv, pixels are standard and compared to a Sony, it feels cheaper in quality. Overall the price is good for what I need it for
I was technically impaired as an adult, and found this product easy to hook up and it easily integrated electronically with my DIRECT TV cable system. Easier than I thought, didn't need to really do any calibration of searching for signal stuff.
Great tv for the money. Dramatic difference in picture quality between hdmi and coax connection. Would definitely recommend.
Pros: Easy set up, good picture, small profile.
Excellent TV for smaller room. Great picture and great sound with use of Monster brand HDMI cables. Decided to spend the extra $100 for 1080i version and I am not disappointed with great sharp picture. Sound is surprising good with sound system that came with TV.
Pros: Easy to set-up with recorder, satellite and flat screen with HMI cable. Required some help with Direct TV controller default to get full screen picture. As usual satisfied with great selection, great technical assistance and quick delivery provided by Crutchfield.
Cons: HDMI cables are visible and unattractive, since they plug into the side of set. Better design would locate the HDMI cable jacks on the edge of the back or bottom of screen for easy accessability without sacrificing appearance.
I just got this Samsung LED TV and it's great a 32" for the bed room pic is fine the sound is very good and loud, just read the instuctions and set it up the right way.
Pros: very happy great color
I was waiting for a 32" screen that would fit on the kitchen counter below the overhead cupboards -- I have less than 20" -- and this is it, at last! GREAT picture, nice subtle frame, EASY set up. Great value! No complaints.
Pros: Size on stand, vibrant picture, slim frame

Direct-Lit LED Technology: Direct-Lit LED backlight technology bridges the gap between lower-cost CCFL (fluorescent) LCD TVs and newer edge-lit LED-LCD TVs. Samsung's Direct-Lit LED-LCD televisions feature LEDs positioned all the way across the LCD panel's back plane (instead of along the side). Unlike "Full-Array" backlight LED-LCD televisions that also feature LEDs positioned along the LCD panel's back plane, the Direct-Lit LED technology uses fewer LEDs and do not offer local dimming. Since there are fewer LEDs, the LCD panel's back plane must be moved farther away from the screen to provide adequate light coverage across the LCD panel, making the TV much deeper than an edge-lit LED-LCD television. Direct-Lit LED backlight technology offers a better picture and is more energy efficient than previous CCFL (fluorescent) LCD televisions, though it requires a much larger cabinet design than newer edge-lit LED-LCD TVs.
Clear Motion Rate 120: Clear Motion Rate (CMR) is Samsung's more comprehensive and accurate measure for how well the LED-LCD TV can display fast-moving images. Previously, motion clarity was expressed simply by the refresh rate, measured in Hz. CMR, however, takes into account all three factors that contribute to motion clarity: panel refresh rate (60Hz), image processor speed and backlight technology. CMR is measured by determining the thinnest line a TV can display in a moving image. The thinner the line, the higher the CMR rating, and the clearer the picture you'll enjoy on the screen.
LED Motion Plus: This function removes drag from fast scenes with a lot of movement to provide a clear picture.
Motion Lighting: The TV automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen in response to the brightness of the room. In bright light, the screen brightens. In dim light, the screen dims.
Wide Color Enhancer Plus: Wide Color Enhancer Plus allows you to see picture color the way the director originally intended. Witness the entire RGB spectrum brought to life on your screen to bring you exceptionally vibrant, yet natural-looking images faithful to the director's original intent.
3,500,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio: The LED-LCD TV delivers a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 3,500,000:1; which provides stunning colors and deep black, so your picture's details don't get lost in the shadows.
HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.
1080p Resolution: The LED-LCD television displays all inputs at a resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080). The television's HDMI and component video inputs will accept 1080p (24/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video signals.
Screen Sizes: You can choose one of the following screen sizes.
Note: Screen Size settings can be stored for each external device you have connected to an input of the TV.
Picture Control: You can make the following adjustments for an optimum picture.
Note: You can adjust and store Picture Settings for each external device connected to the TV.
HDMI Black Level: You can select the black level on the screen to adjust the screen depth when you have a component connected via HDMI to the television. You can select either Normal or Low.
Noise Filtration: The Samsung TV provides digital noise and MPEG noise filtration.
Film Mode: The TV can be set to automatically sense and process film signals from all sources and adjust the picture from optimum quality. Film mode is supported in TV, AV, Component (480i/1080i), and HDMI (480i/1080i).
Game Mode: When connecting the television to a game console, you can enjoy a more realistic gaming experience when selecting Game Mode.
SRS TruSurround HD: SRS TruSurround HD is a patented SRS technology that solves the problem of playing 5.1 multichannel content over two speakers. TruSurround delivers a compelling, virtual surround sound experience through any two-speaker playback system, including the internal television speakers. It is fully compatible with all multichannel formats.
Sound Modes: You can choose from the following Preset Sound Modes:
Equalizer: You can manually adjusts the TV's built-in 5-band EQ (100 Hz, 300 Hz, 1 kHz, 3 kHz, and 10 kHz) for a more customized sound.
Auto Volume: Auto Volume automatically adjusts the volume of the desired channel, lowering the sound output when the modulation signal is high or raising the sound output when the modulation signal is low. This reduces the difference in volume when changing channels. The Auto Volume feature can be set to Normal, Night or Off.
Audio Delay: The Audio Delay function corrects audio/video mismatch, when watching TV or video, and listening to a digital audio output using an external device such as an AV receiver. You can adjust the audio delay from 0ms to 250 ms.
Audio Outputs: The Samsung LED-LCD television provides an analog and digital audio output.
ConnectShare: ConnectShare enables you to view photo and movie files, as well as listen to audio files saved on a USB Mass Storage Class device (MTP: Media Transfer Protocol is not supported) using the television's USB (type-A) port. Files must be formatted in FAT16/32 or NTFS. The TV can recognize up to 1,000 files in each folder.
Firmware/Software Updates: Firmware/software upgrades can be performed by downloading the latest firmware/software updates from Samsung's Support Site to a USB thumbdrive.
5-Way Joy Stick: The television is equipped with a 5-way "joy stick" like button on the bottom right side of the TV that lets you control the TV without the remote control.
Input Source Names: You can assign a pre-programmed name to each of the inputs. When input naming is completed, you will no longer have to remember which component is connected to each input when selecting a source to watch. Source names include VCR, DVD, Cable STB, Satellite STB, PVR STB, AV Receiver, Game, Camcorder, PC, TV, DVI PC, DVI Device, IPTV, Blu-Ray, HD-DVD, and Digital Media Adapter.
Close Captions (CC): The Samsung LED-LCD TV provides Analog Closed Captions and Digital Closed Captions. The Digital CC offers customizable text, font, and size.
Note: The Closed Captions feature does work in Component, HDMI, or PC modes.
Program Rating Lock: The Program Rating Lock feature automatically locks out programs that are deemed inappropriate for children. You can block TV program based on their ratings and Movies based on their MPAA rating, so you have more control over what your children watch. The Program Rating Lock function is protected by a 4-digit PIN.
ENERGY STAR Compliant with ECO Settings: The Samsung LED-LCD TV is ENERGY STAR compliant and provides ECO settings to reduce the TV's power consumption and cut-down on energy costs.
On/Off Timer: The three On/Off timers allow you to program the television to turn itself on and off by selecting a specific on time and a specific off time. An On/off timer can be set to repeat only once, everyday, Mon-Fri, Mon-Sat, or Sat-Sun. You can also choose the On Timer's content (TV, USB, or Antenna) and volume. The on and off timers work independently of one another.
Sleep Timer: The sleep timer switches the television off after a specified amount of time. The sleep timer can be set to 30, 60, 90, 120, 150, or 180 minutes.
Auto Protection Time: If the screen remains idle with a still image for a certain period of time (2, 4, 8, 10 hours) defined by the user, the TV's built-in screen saver is activated to prevent the formation of host images on the screen.
Wireless Remote: The supplied remote control is designed to only operate the Samsung LED-LCD television only. You can use the remote control up to a distance of about 23' from TV with a direct line of sight. The remote's buttons are backlit and will light up with a press of a button.
Note: This remote control has Braille points on the Power, Channel, and Volume buttons for the visually impaired.
Pedestal Stand: The TV is shipped with the pedestal stand unattached. The pedestal stand attaches to the television using the supplied hardware. The television weighs 14.5 lbs with the stand.
Wall Mounting: The TV has four threaded inserts on the back for use with an optional wall-mount bracket. The spacing of the mounting holes is VESA 200 (200mm horizontal x 200mm vertical) in accordance with the industry standards set by the Video Electronics Standards Association. The threaded inserts require M6 (6mm) machine screws (not supplied). The television weighs 13.0 lbs without the stand.
Note: When mounting the TV on the stand or a wall (with optional bracket) leave 4" of clearance on each side of the television and 4" above/below the television for adequate ventilation.
Detachable AC Power Cord: The Samsung LED-LCD TV comes with a 5' detachable AC power cord. The power cord sits 0.625" from the back of the television. The power cord is fitted with a right-angle AC plug that sits 1.0" from the wall.
