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.

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.

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.

  • 16:9: Sets the picture to 16:9 wide mode.
  • Zoom 1: Vertically enlarges the size of the picture and allows you to move the enlarged picture using the arrows on the remote.
  • Zoom 2: Vertically enlarges the size of the picture more than Zoom 1 and allows you to move the enlarged picture using the arrows on the remote.
  • Wide Fit: Proportionally enlarges the picture to fit the entire screen without changing the aspect ratio.
  • 4:3: Sets the picture to 4:3 normal mode with pillars on the left and right of the screen.

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
