Our take on the Samsung UN22F5000

When folks are shopping for a super-compact TV, they automatically think of 19" models, but a 22" screen like Samsung's UN22F5000 provides over 30% more screen area for just a little more money. The shallow panel depth and skinny bezel help this TV squeeze into tight spots like a kitchen counter. This model's advanced LED backlight delivers snappy picture contrast — bright whites, solid blacks, and every shade in between.

The Samsung is a great tv for the kitchen. The sound is fantastic. We had a Vizio and the sound was horrible, so this one is a step up. The picture, however, isn't as crisp as the Vizio. But it's still a very good picture. For the money, you can't go wrong.

The Samsung is a great tv for the kitchen. The sound is fantastic. We had a Vizio and the sound was horrible, so this one is a step up. The picture, however, isn't as crisp as the Vizio. But it's still a very good picture. For the money, you can't go wrong.

Pros: Great sound and size. The stand is also very nice.

Cons: Picture not as crisp as I would like.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this TV for my younger son's room. The Picture and Sound are good, would be great for a computer monitor also.

Pros: Easy to setup; a great value.

Cons: A little smaller than expected.

Perfect for Kitchen Counter

JonesOhio from Ohio on 2/10/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased this to mount under kitchen cabinet.....fits perfectly! Twenty two inch size is far better than the nineteen inch we had there before. Picture is great as is the sound, which I have found annoying on other smaller LED's. Highly recommend this one. I have never had a problem with Samsung. We own others and they perform great!

Pros: Easy hookup, great picture as well as sound

Cons: Don't particularly like the external power supply as it makes over the counter wire concealment a bit challenging, but I worked it out and all is well.

Great little TV/Computer Monitor

Rick from Colorado on 1/25/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This TV (like most Samsung TVs) has a great picture and is easy to get setup and working. The picture is very crisp and Samsung gives you a lot of control over how it looks, if you're very particular about your picture. Of course, you can just leave the default settings and get a very nice picture. This also makes an outstanding computer monitor with its 1920x1080 resolution.

Pros: Just plug it in and turn it on and you're ready to go. Great Samsung picture and quality!

Cons: Like all these small and thin TV's, the sound isn't great. External speakers do wonders!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to set-up, sturdy, clear and crisp picture, and nice accompanying remote. Sound is adequate - perhaps as good as factory speakers are going to get. We only use it for HD-TV, and haven't tried it for movies or games.

Pros: Set-up, picture quality

Dave W from St. Louis, MO on 1/13/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Clear picture & great sound for a small space. I needed a smaller screen to fit in a kitchen cabinet. This was just the right TV with high resolution. I would purchase it again!

Pros: Resolution, ease to set up, price, quick shipping, no hassles!

Cons: none really, it is small but that is what I needed.

Perfect for my needs

Gregory from Nevada on 1/12/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Searched for an inexpensive (under $200) to use in my RV trailer. I'm totally off grid, so the relatively low power consumption was necessary, And I found the channel scan important since I'm using this for AIR channels locally. And I use DVD's often for movie viewing. Perfect size for shelf above my sleeping quarters. Only installed 1 month ago.

Pros: .Size .Screen sharpness .Ease of initial install .Display and control options .Price .

Cons: .Volume ...just okay

red from Georgia on 12/27/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not a bad TV for 22 inches. We're familiar with Samsung and held out for this TV to become available on Crutchfield. We like the idea of lifetime technical support though I doubt very much we'll use it. Sound is very good for a small set. Color is good but does have to be adjusted to get life like appearance. We're very satisfied.


Cons: There are way too many places on the menu to go to adjust color. And some of them I don't even know what they mean.

Excellent TV

exponential from Colorado on 12/8/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent TV; sharp picture and a nice size for a kitchen set. The 1080p resolution seems to be unusual in a small set such as this so that is a bonus.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Did not expect much but very surprised at picture quality - very sharp and crisp. I am never owned an LED only Plasma and am very happy with picture. Also the speakers on it were very good with no issues with sound quality. Work great for me in a smaller room.

Pros: Great buy for the money

Cons: None

Good, small TV for the price. Has a simple set-up menu. Adjustments for different viewing positions is a neat feature. Simple well designed remote. Picture quality & color are decent w/o making too many adjustments



Great Replacement

cay24 from St. Michaels, MD on 8/31/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased this TV as a replacement for an older Toshiba model which is in the kitchen area. Size was an important consideration due to the location it had to be placed. So far it is performing very well and the features and picture are quite good for a very reasonable price.

Pros: Size, picture quality, adjustment features.

SteveR from Cuba, NY on 8/17/2014

Good TV

Nate from Columbus,OH on 7/4/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This TV is great fit for my kitchen because of the light weight and the size allows me to place it out of the way on a wall bracket and fit within a certain space I needed it to. It has a good picture right out of the box and the sound is very good also. Great buy for the price if your looking for a small TV.

Pros: Very good picture and sound quality. Lightweight and easy to setup.

Cons: none

Great little tv!

BRM from Charlottesville on 6/30/2014

So far this has been a great tv for my second home. It has a fantastic picture, good sound, and was the perfect size to put on a chest of drawers in my bedroom. I have it connected to a cable box and a PS3 with no problems. My favorite feature is the sleep timer - I tend to fall asleep in bed.

Pros: Easy to set up, lightweight, nice picture and sound.

Cons: None so far.

A Happy Customer

Jim C from New Bedford, MA on 4/21/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very happy with my replacement Denon DBT-1713UD. I had an issue with the original unit I received last week. Today I received the replacement in a very prompt and efficient manner. I am pleased with both Denon and Samsung (my monitor) but I am even more pleased with Crutchfield customer and technical support. Thank you very much and I assure you that you will be hearing from me when I am ready to make my next equipment purchase. I have made a lot of purchases over the years - I am now sixty seven years old and I had three different recording studio and businesses over the past 45 years since graduating college, All of a sudden I feel much older so I better sign off now. Thank you.

Pros: The monitor is very good quality and the right size at this stage in my life. Also, after starting out with reel to reel tape recorders and oversized cameras it sure is great to have the quality and convenience of today's world!

Cons: No Cons!!!!!

just like i thought

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Glad i bought this item when it was still available. It's what i was looking for. Small room and close to TV. Sound could be better. Took some getting use to. As always you get what you pay for. It's a small TV for a small room. No complaints.

Pros: Very clear picture

Cons: Sound isn't very good. But we got used to it

This is a fantastic television! I love the low profile edging on the TV and the picture quality is simply outstanding. The picture is crystal clear and the set up is simply easy as 1-2-3-! Run, don't walk to Crutchfield and order this TV today!

Pros: Excellent picture quality.

Cons: None.

Nice Petite TV

Penny from New York, NY on 3/14/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This has an excellent picture. Presents a little smaller than I imagined but looks great.

Pros: Picture is clear as a bell. Sounds fine.

Cons: Smaller than I thought but wouldn't feel that way in a small room.

Nice, simple TV, good price

Victor from Pasadena, CA on 3/13/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this TV for my kitchen. I have it connected to a cable box. I dont need internet TV in the kitchen, to watch movies we go to our larger TV in the den. The picture is sharp, sound is acceptable (no classical music here). Price was good ($200). Crutchfield as usual was dependable.

Pros: Good picture, acceptable sound.

Cons: No internet TV, but any DVD player or ROku box can solve it for under $100.

Great Kitchen TV

bstone from Essex, CT on 3/3/2014

Samsung UN22F5000

Larry D. from New Braunfels, TX on 12/25/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We used a powered HDMI splitter to connect this TV on the kitchen counter to our Direct TV STB/DVR in the living room, with the other side of the split HDMI signal continuing to our big Samsung TV in the living room. The picture is good. The sound is mediocre at best. And it doesn't have output ports for external speakers. In our case better sound will come from the home theater system in the living room just around the corner. The screen won't tilt back at all, so I'm having to put something under the front of the stand, so it is easier to see on the counter when we're standing up in the kitchen. Couldn't find a HDMI splitter on

Pros: Good picture.

Cons: Mediocre sound, No output port for external speakers. Screen won't tilt back. Instructions are poor (Had to call Samsung for set-up help, and they were freaked out by the use of the splitter)

Excellent TV for the money

Todd from Central, IL on 12/19/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted a small TV to hang on the wall. After reading several favorable reviews, I selected this one. I was not disappointed. It is loaded with a lot of features, excellent picture at a great price.

Pros: Great picture, good value

Cons: The sound is a little weak, but what can you expect out of a TV this size.

Samsung UN22F5000 is a great small TV!

DianC from Searcy,AR on 10/27/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Samsung 22 inch is the perfect size for our small bedroom. The picture and sound are great, especially on the HD channels. The remote is easy to navigate and has a lot of options. The screen tilt feature is very helpful when I can't sleep and the clear voice feature helps me hear what is being said without the background sounds waking my husband. The sleep timer keeps the TV on for a long time so I don't have to reach and keep resetting it. I thought about mounting it on the wall, but being so light and thin, it sits perfectly on a wooden box on the nightstand at the perfect level for all viewing.



Perfect for the kitchen

DeedeeK from Maine on 10/24/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect size for the kitchen counter, great picture. Two problems were putting on the base. Could use a better design for installation and number two would be a swivel base would make it five stars. But happy with my purchase and delivery was swift and on time.

Pros: Samsung quality, picture

Cons: base hard to attach, does not swivel on base

Placement, Price,Picture & Sound

JGuy from Dagsboro, DE on 9/11/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got it for the Kitchen along with a fold up under cabinet mount, so when it`s not on you fold it up, you can`t see it and you still can use the counter space. Perfect size & Picture it just worked out Great. With the Surround Sound Mode on it sounds really Good throughout the room. There`s nothing like a HAPPY COOK everybody Wins.

Pros: Crutchfield (GREAT) Ordered it in the Morning and had it two days late at the door. Free Ship & Tax cant beat it.

Cons: None At All !

Great little tv for this nightfly.

Don from Los Osos, Cal. on 8/8/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's no wonder this tv is selling like Power Ball lotto tickets. Great picture right out of the box even before tweaking the settings and there are plenty of adjustments for picture & sound. Viewing angles are fine as long as you don't stray too far from about 20-30º off center and, I haven't noticed any ghosting or flash lighting when the screen is dark. I've read reviews about the supposedly flimsy stand, not true. The stand is very stable with no wobbling as long as you got the 3 screws snugged up tight. The remote can be a little confusing at first but, once you get the hang of it, becomes easy to navigate. It seems Samsung has stepped up their game in the tv market in the last few years to give Sony a run for their money. Not just in their products but, also their customer support when I had a question about this tv the person on live chat answered it promptly to my satisfaction.

Pros: Very easy to set up. Great picture. It fits anywhere you need a small screen tv & only weighs 9lbs!

Cons: None so far.

Excellent small tv

Subaru doctor from Westbrook, Me on 8/4/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the second Samsung UN22F5000 tv I have bought from Crutchfield. I bought the first one for camp and was so happy with it. I got another one for home. Another great product from Samsung. Excellent picture with easy programming. It doesn't get any better then buying from Crutchfield.

Pros: Excellent picture and programming.

Cons: Sound could be a little better, but it's not bad for the size.

Great TV

WKC from NY, NY on 7/24/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great TV for the price. Mounted it on a wall with a VESA mount. The 'magic angle feature of the machine does work and allows you to put a TV at different heights and yet compensate for the washout effect from the LCD off-angle.

Pros: Price + features

Cons: wish it had a simple programmable control

Y.S from Methuen, Ma on 6/30/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'll start w/ great price, but the 22" was too small for my master bedroom & Unfortunatelty the side view was no better b/c it had a green tint unless you stood directly in front of the tv. So yes I had to use the return policy for the full $ return.

Pros: $

Cons: too small & green tint from side angle

As always Crutchfield delivers the goods, I received an email message that the price on this TV was reduced and that the shipping was free ! I had been looking for another flat screen LED and I love the Samsung quality. This is the second Samsung LED television I have purchased. I think the picture quality of the Samsung LED tv is superior to any other. I also have a Samsung DVD player and it is also a high quality piece of equipment. Thanks Crutchfield I look forward to purchasing more products in the future.

Happy with Samsung 22" purchase

RLS from Saginaw, MI on 6/2/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Samsung 22" is the perfect size for the kitchen. It was an upgrade from a 19", but a different brand. You can't go wrong with a Samsung. I have 2 more larger screen Samsung's also, I guess that says it all for the Samsung brand! Can't say enough good about Crutchfield either, great prices and the service to go along with it. Thank you Crutchfield.

Pros: Great picture and sound quality. Wouldn't expect anything less from Samsung.

Cons: TV stand, not the easiest to screw on. But everything else makes up for that!

Happy One from Washington, DC on 5/28/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Samsung 22" is perfect for my 15 x 20 workout room. The picture quality is clear and crisp for a smaller TV, which I was very pleased with, as is the sound quality, which is equally impressive for the size of the TV. Easy set up right out of the box. For a small room, this TV willl accommodate your needs.

Pros: Good picture and sound quality, easy to set up, perfect for a small room

Boilerone from Tampa, FL on 4/20/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was the second unit shipped to me as the first one was inoperable as soon as I plugged it in. Customer Service was great, they shipped out a new one the same day and I had 2 days later. This unit is working fine. I'm using it on my boat and in bright sunlight, it's hard to see any picture, so I wouldn't recommend this unit in a bright setting. On a cloudy day or in the evening's it works just fine and the digital signals that it receives are pretty amazing.

Pros: Great digital signal picture Lightweight Good sound Solid value

Cons: Not good in bright sunlight

Great little TV for the money, and I love the fact that it has a headphone jack so I can connect my little portable speakers.

Pros: Magnificent picture & decent sound. Gets great reception with rabbit ears, and I'm sure it will do well with my satellite connection.

Video Features

LED Edge-Lighting: Samsung's LED Edge-Lighting technology allows for a high dynamic contrast ratio and ultra-sharp blacks by allowing multiple LEDs to turn on an off automatically based on the image. LED Edge-Lighting also provides more natural color representation and deep reds and greens, because Samsung uses white LEDs that produce 105% of the broadcast color gamut. The television's white LEDs are arranged along the left and right edges of the screen and a proprietary light guide is used to focus its luminance inwards towards the middle of the screen for a more uniform brightness. Overall, this LED Backlight system produces contrast with stronger blacks and whites, and greater subtlety of every gradation in between.

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.

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.

Motion Lighting: The TV automatically adjust 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.

Customer Q&A

6 questions already asked

Yes I use this TV at my camp in Vermont. I also got a Mohu Sky antenna and get about 25 channels. Highly recommended they all come in great without turning the antenna. [ MICHAEL  Nov 11, 2014 ]
Yes picks up all the digital Chanel's in the LA area. VHF and UHF. I use a antenna on my boat that has a booster of some kind. Will work with just old fashioned rabbit ear antena which I have done at the Rose Bowl for tailgate. [ Clark  Nov 10, 2014 ]
Yes Ryan, this TV does have an over the air tuner. You will have to use an external antenna that you can buy inexpensively through Crutchfield or other retail stores. You will then be able to watch your local digital channels without a subscription to either Cable or satellite companies. This is a nice compact TV with a quality picture (1080p LCD)! [ MICKEY R  Nov 10, 2014 ]
If I read the following statement from the specs correctly, I believe the answer is yes. "tuner receives over-the-air HDTV broadcasts (antenna required)" [ JANE  Nov 10, 2014 ]
You will need an antenna. [ DIEGO  Nov 10, 2014 ]
Not sure. Right now it's quite fixed and I'd rather not take it apart. Sorry. [ JACK  Oct 19, 2014 ]
The stand screws on. [ Jaynemarie  Oct 17, 2014 ]
inserts secured with screws [ RICHARD  Oct 17, 2014 ]
Sorry I don't know. I had my son put it together. [ KATHY  Oct 17, 2014 ]
It been so long I don't exactly remember how the stands went on. However I do know that I bought two of them and followed the assembly instructions each inside a dorm room. I seem to remember a screwdriver, but I am not sure. I know it was not hard and only a matter of following the instructions. Both TV's have and continue to give good service. Both are surviving after being moved back and forth between semesters. Good Luck! [ J  Oct 17, 2014 ]
I'm really sorry I can't help as I mounted this into cabinets of the kitchen. No need for the stand so it got put on a shelf someplace. I am very satisfied with the tv.. [ ROBERT  Oct 17, 2014 ]
Not sure,mine is on a wall mount.Sorry [ JOE C  Oct 17, 2014 ]
You will be fine, the volume goes very load, I however did purchase the Samsung sound bar as well [ SHANNON  Jun 23, 2014 ]
I bought it for my bedroom. It's been an excellent set. The sound is fine and I think it could be heard just fine over a treadmill. I wish the sound on my 42" LG was as good. Good Luck! [ LUCILLE  Jun 17, 2014 ]
Hi, I use it in the kitchen/breakfast bar area. It seems to have plenty of volume control. I never have it more than 1/3 volume and seems very solid. For small speakers they work well. Don't know how load your treadmill is, but I think it would be OK for you. [ MARK  Jun 12, 2014 ]
I have this TV in my kitchen that is hooked up to an Over The Air antenna. I just turned it up and it is fairly loud. I don't think you will have an issue but I know some of those treadmills can be pretty noisy. I can't say for sure but I think you will be good. Hope that helps. [ MICHAEL  Jun 11, 2014 ]
The sound quality of this, and all other small flat panel TVs, is poor. I purchased a pair of Bose powered PC speakers that plug into the TV's headphone jack for about $80. Now the sound is great. There are other decent PC speakers for less if $80 is too much. The TV is awesome. You can play mp4 movies via the USB port. I have a 3tb external hard drive with about 700 movies that i converted from DVD to MP4. The drive is quickly recognized and the movies play with no issues. Hope this helps. [ David  Jun 10, 2014 ]
loud enough for a semi small room,only. [ RAFAEL  Jun 10, 2014 ]
Although I didn't keep the TV for a long period of time (upgraded to a unit with a larger screen), I believe it will be loud enough for you to hear it with the treadmill going. [ TELFORD  Jun 10, 2014 ]
The tv gets loud enough but to be honest the sound is rather tinny. I use my stereo for sound. [ DONALD  Jun 10, 2014 ]
Volume is good with built-in speakers. Should be fine for treadmill. [ RICHARD  Jun 10, 2014 ]
It is hard to answer your question having not been there. However, I can tell you that we bought two of these TV's, one each for twin daughters going off to college. The TV''s were easily loud enough for them to watch in their respective dorm rooms in different conditions at two separate universities. The volume tone settings can be changed to your liking as well. My general feeling is that you would not have any difficulties. Good Luck! [ J  Jun 10, 2014 ]
I actually use it also when I am on a treadmill, but I read from some users that it isn't loud enough. I bought a ZVOX speaker connected it to the TV (my TV actually sits on the speaker) and it's perfect. Now i have great picture and loud enough volume for when i am on the treadmill. Hope this answers your question. [ Nada  Jun 10, 2014 ]
This is a nice TV but it does not have a headphone port. [ MICKEY R  Jan 27, 2014 ]
Hi- Yes, there is a head-phone jack, but note that it is located on the back of the TV so you may need an extra long headphone cord. Hope this helps. Thanks, Mike Jones [ MICHAEL K  Jan 20, 2014 ]
Yes there is a headphone port on the rear of the set. [ RONALD K  Jan 20, 2014 ]
Although we haven't used headphones with this television, in the back of the TV near the area where the inputs are located is a headphone input. [ JEREMIAH K  Jan 20, 2014 ]
yes [ THOMAS R  Jan 20, 2014 ]
Yes, there is a port for headphones in the back of the set. [ WILLIAM  Jan 20, 2014 ]
Yes there is a port for headphones. I use mine to plug my portable bose speaker into it. Excellent tv [ MICHAEL  Jan 20, 2014 ]
To tell you the truth, the Samsung UN22F5000 I about in less than year is not working. For the last week, when I turn the TV on the image does not show up. I will turn on and turn it off to see if the image will come on, but no luck. It is just sitting in the room and need to send it back!!! I will not recommend you buying the TV. [ IHI  Jan 20, 2014 ]
This 22 inch led TV is very good. God luck. [ RAFAEL  Jan 20, 2014 ]
yes, the headphone input is on the back of the TV. Its marked by a headphone symbol. Check the back. [ RAFAEL  Jan 20, 2014 ]
The element of dark vs. light within the image that adds visual quality and gives a detail that adds emphasis to the image quality. [ JOHN D.  Dec 29, 2013 ]
Sorry, I don't own a tool for measuring foot-lambert, nor are manufacturer numbers for such standardized or reliable (and arn't even written on the box or device here). I only use mine for video games running on a Wii U, and the games at least are visually beautifully with wonderful color ranges. Pikmin 3 really looks like you could touch the environments. [ CYNTHIA  Dec 28, 2013 ]
Hi Evan, I don't know what the contrast ratio is but the TV has the best picture in my house. Kathy M [ KATHY  Dec 28, 2013 ]
To delete channels from the Added Channels list, follow these steps: 1. Select one or more channels in the Added Channels list using the up/down buttons and the Yellow (Select) button on your remote. 2. Press the TOOLS button on your remote. The Tools menu appears. 3. Select Delete in the Tools menu, and then press the ENTER button. [ Jeff  Nov 24, 2013 ]  Staff
