Our take on the Samsung UN32EH4000

A 32" screen is relatively small these days, and the limitations of a conventional fluorescent backlight won't be as visible — but they still affect picture quality. Samsung's UN32EH4000 has a "direct-lit" LED backlight, instead, which boosts picture contrast so the TV covers the range from deep black to brilliant white. (If you need a screen that won't get washed out by room lights, definitely consider LED.) LEDs are more energy-efficient than fluorescents, too.

Just what you need

You'll find two HDMI inputs and a component video input for connecting your high-definition gear. 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. The UN32EH4000 is a great TV for "cord-cutters" — it has an optical audio output for connecting to your receiver so you can enjoy Dolby® Digital surround sound on over-the-air broadcasts. Samsung also includes a special type of Dolby audio processing designed to optimize the TV's sound when you're viewing streamed movies from a connected Blu-ray player or video game console.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I received my TV within five days with free shipping which I think is fantastic. Product did not suffer any damage and box is reuasable to pack Tv if you need to move. TV setup was easy with clear simple instructions.

Pros: Excellent price for a TV this size and features.

Cons: Could not find a plug in the back to operate a signal box for a wireless audio headset I own.

So far so good. I have only had it for a couple of weeks, but I really like the picture.



Great TV, even better service

Barry from Dallas, TX on 10/27/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this Samsung TV based on a Consumer Reports review. And I bought it from Crutchfield based on price. I am glad for both decisions. The TV is everything the review said it was, and the service from Crutchfield has been perfect. The hand-written thank you a week later was a wonderful personal touch in an otherwise completely impersonal transaction. Next time I might choose this supplier even if they aren't the lowest price.

Pros: For its size, the picture is nice and the sound is excellence. I really like the fact that I can display pictures and play video and audio a usb drive.

Cons: I have't noticed any

Absolutely worth every penny

amma from Stoneville, NC on 10/26/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this TV for my bedroom. I love it, it has an wonderful picture/sound quality. It is sleek looking also. I would recommend this TV to anyione.

Pros: Great picture/Sound

Cons: None yet

Exceeded Expectations

DickG from Baltimore, MD on 10/15/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We had recently purchased two other flat screen televisions and was not completely satisfied with their quality. I read dozens of reviews, compared prices and selected this Samsung model for our bedroom. It is by far has the best picture quality and is easiest to navigate of all our sets. I had read that the sound was not as good, but we weren't looking for a full home theater, and in our bedroom it is crisp, clear and better than expected.

Pros: Great picture, excellent sound for a bedroom TV, intuitive controls.

Cons: None yet, but it's unrealistic to think there won't be something!

Great Bedroom TV

Dave C. from Galesburg, IL on 10/14/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this TV to be used in the bedroom. It's the perfect size for this location. The picture quality and sound are outstanding for a TV of this price. I could have purchased the same TV at a local national chain store but by dealing with Crutchfield I didn't have to pay our exorbitant state and local sales taxes, and delivery was free. If one can wait two business days to get the TV from Crutchfield, I'd highly recommend doing so.

Pros: This TV has an especially easy to set sleep timer which is great because of its bedroom use. There's an actual button on the remote, one does not need to get into the menus to set the sleep timer.

Cons: There are only two HDMI inputs. For our use, that's not a problem but if this TV were being used in, say, the family room where one had more than two devices to be hooked up, it might be.

Just what I wanted.

Alfred from Bergen County, NJ on 10/9/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

TV delivered with screen broken, Crutchfield ordered replacement, which arrived a few days later. I had trouble with set up and connecting old DVD but excellent phone service staff guided me through. My first digital TV. Still using roof antenna. I'm pleased with the result. Picture, viewing angles, remote are all excellent.



Great picture

Very good picture quality for the price



bedroom's Best

Carl Todd from Glen Cove, NY on 8/31/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great picture and clear sound. Only wished it would have a direct connection for suround sound speakers without the need for a sound bar that when I watch an opera or ballet DVD it would make the sound more like that in my living room's home theater setup.

Pros: Good picture and clear sound

Cons: limited sound, but adaquate for TV sound volume

Samsung TV Excellent for the Bedroom

JohnD from Gwynn Oak, MD on 8/9/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The TV was everything that I came to expect with a Samsung product. Set up was a breeze. The TV is just right for my bedroom. I would recommend this TV to friends and family.

Pros: Illuminated Remote. Picture Quality.

Cons: The only issue that I had was that I had to manually set the clock. The TV has an option to do it automatically but it doesn't but other than that I have no qualms with it.

Perfect Bedroom TV

SteveS from Boston, MA on 7/31/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This TV is ideal as a 2nd set in a bedroom or smaller space. The picture is bright and clear and the colors are very good. You won't miss 1080P unless you intend to watch blue rays. TV HD quality is perfect. Superb value.

Pros: Very compact size, great colors and picture.

Cons: It's not 1080P but you won't miss it.

Great TV

Portia from Wichita,KS on 7/27/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Have had the TV a short while but doing just great at this time. Colors are great, one thing they really don't tell you much about is that it has a volume level built in so no more loud commercials. And the digital channels that we us to have to turn up, on our old TV , it does it by itself. Couldn't be happier at this point.

Pros: Great color and love the volume level.

Cons: None so far.

Purchased for bedroom and is ideal size. Picture quality very nice considering no HD cable box hook up yet.



very good value television

susan L from homewood ca. on 7/12/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We are very satisfied with our purchase of the Samsung tv. It has a good size screen for viewing, but does not take up too much room. It is very light and easy to move around. the picture quality seems very good. The remote does its job. Would recommend this tv to anyone interested in this size televison.



Best 32' inch LED TV at this Price Point...Period!,

xGMANx from New Jersey on 5/25/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The picture quality on this set is fantastic. One of the few if not the only set, with a 3,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio. It helps make your blacks - blacker and whites - whiter. The colors are so vividly rich. I couldn't believe my eyes, when I had this set first turned on. You won't be disappointed in this TV whatsoever. The menus are attractive and very easy to navigate as well. It has a 20 total watt virtual surround sound speaker system, built into the TV. You can change it to standard, music, or movie modes. The music mode is amazing when listening to TV shows or concerts with music or singing. When you are watching a DVD, the explosive scenes in movie mode sucks you right into the action. I can't say enough, how much you get for this ridiculous price point. The only negative is the remote control could have been Universal to work other devices, as well as the TV. But who am I to complain. Everything else about this set is sensational!

Pros: 1. Amazingly rich and vibrant colors. 2. The black & whites are the darkest and brightest I've seen on this size set ever. 3. The built in Sound is anything BUT basic. 4. Illuminated remote 5. USB Movie/Picture share 5. Price!

Cons: 1. Remote is not Universal.

Well worth the money!

Robert A. from Duluth, GA on 5/23/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Samsung always makes great TVs and this one fits that word. Great picture, great color, great clarity. The only change I would suggest is for Samsung to put the "remote/infrared" somewhere other than at the bottom right of the screen. It sticks out and looks funny. But that said, I still give this TV five stars. And the price was very good as well. Crutchfield is the only place to shop for electronics, period.

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 60: 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.

3,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio: The LED-LCD TV delivers a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 3,000,000:1; 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.

720p Resolution: The LED-LCD television displays all inputs at a resolution of 720p (1366 x 768). The television's HDMI and component video inputs will accept 1080p (24/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video signals.

  • HDMI (v.1.3): The Samsung LED-LCD TV features two HDMI 1.3 inputs. In addition, any HDMI input can be used to connect a PC to this TV.
  • Component Video: The Samsung LED-LCD TV features a single component video input. The TV's component video input can also be used as a composite video input (480i only).

Screen Sizes: You can choose one of the following screen sizes.

  • 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.
  • Screen Fit: See the full image with no resizing when HDMI (720p/1080i/180p) or Component (1080i/1080p) signals are inputted

  • MPEG Noise Filter: This filter reduces MPEG noise of the picture. You can set the MPEG Noise Filter to Low, Medium, High, Auto, or Off. 

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).

The optical digital audio output will only output in 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI, RCA, or USB.
  • Analog Audio: The television features a 3.5mm (minijack) audio output for connecting the television to an analog 2-channel receiver.
