Samsung UN32F5500

Totally Disappointed... from NYC on 3/17/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am totally disappointed with this product. With all its bells and whistles, it is totally useless. I bought this TV few months back. First thing I noticed is it is missing a vga/dvi input for my laptop/computer which i can live with since it has internet connection (or so i thought). But when I try to watch online shows from NBC or ABC, I am unable to because it does not support Adobe Flash. Internet connection is OK but slow and hard to navigate. All the pre-installed sites/links are either useless or not applicable since I only use netflix and pandora. Most of the other links you have to subscribe and pay. Worst offense they did is after couple of months owning it, the TV started power cycling on its own while in the middle of the program. The only way to fix it is to unplug the power, wait few minutes then plug it back on. It may work for few hours then goes through the same process again. I had a Sony LCD before this for at least 5 years and never had this problem.

Pros: -none

Cons: - missing vga/dvi input - internet slow - TV power cycles a lot

Replaced an old Iron-horse Sony CRT for our bedroom. Second flat panel TV from Crutchfield. Timely delivery and very good service. Very satisfied with the picture and TV overall. Don't use half the features, but maybe someday !

Samsung LEDTV Review

LarryF from Genessee, PA on 1/3/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is my first LED TV - the old CRT crapped out on me a few weeks ago. The Samsung brand and Crutchfield as vendor were both highly recommended to me by a friend. So far, so good. The TV was shipped super fast (no charge) and was easy to set up - as well as being MUCH LESS of a heavyweight. The old 26 inch CRT TV must have weighed 70 pounds and this 32 inch LEDTV weighs less than 20 pounds - in the shipping carton. Thanks for super service!

Pros: The light weight is a GREAT improvement over the CRT model TV.

Cons: None.

Great TV

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to use. Nice picture for a 32.

Pros: Pic quality. Smart screen use is great


Great picture quality!

HJ from Maine on 12/28/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is my first flat screen TV and our only flat screen in the house. We use it for dvd's and Netflix. We don't have cable or receive any local tv stations so we were looking for good picture quality. And found it! Very clear picture. Connected it to our stereo system for good sound, although on its own the tv has decent sound quality. Very happy with this purchase.

Pros: Good picture quality, wireless connection is great, straightforward set up.

Cons: The interface with the remote is a bit cumbersome. We don't have our computer connected to the tv, so using the remote to navigate the web is challenging.

Great TV

Dave from Charlottesville, VA on 12/27/2013

Purchased this television in-store after talking to several very knowledgeable employees. We've been using it for about 2 weeks now to watch Netflix, Amazon Prime, and the occasional DVD as well as listen to Pandora. The built in smart-TV functions are fantastic, it completely precluded our need to purchase a Roku or other similar device. No complaints about picture quality or sound. The remote design is awkward and there is a little lag when navigating the menus, but neither of these are too serious. I would recommend this TV.

Pros: Great size, great picture, great sound (for tv speakers), stable mount (have since mounted it on the wall but had it on the stand for a week), and above all the features of the Smart-TV menu.

Cons: The remote is poorly designed. It is very difficult to distinguish buttons by feel which necessitates looking down at it a lot. Also the "light" button is located right next to the power button - easy to turn your tv off when you're just trying to light up the silly remote. There is a bit of lag when navigating menus. Occasional pause on streaming content, but that could be my WiFi and not the TV.

Samsung Smart TVs

Jerry from Long Island on 12/26/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Setup was quick and easy. Wifi found and connected. Did a little research on the web for optimizing picture quality and found some great suggestions. You'll want to play with a few different ones until you find one that suits you best. Didn't require much effort. Logged into Samsung account, Netflix, and others to finalize. Found a nice VideoSecu wall mount and we were done.

Pros: Beautiful picture on HD channels and running Planet Earth DVD's. Easy to setup. Sound was good enough for TV. If you want better you can always add a soundbar or push it thru your home audio system.

Cons: Screen defaults to HDMI1. While the Smart TV found all my cable channels I couldn't find any way to get those channels to play without actually hooking up a cable box. Not what I expected. Even trying to hook up the TV to my Mac or PC and running the Optimum app proved useless because the app won't let you run external monitors or tv's! I found several video's and notes about major cable companies "planning" on putting out apps to support Smart TV's, but nothing exists that I'm aware of yet.

Great picture, beautiful sound, Smart Indeed

Trevor K from Torrington, CT on 12/25/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great HDTV for the price. Picture is the same as my previous Toshiba 1080P CFL LCD. No loss in quality, no discernable difference. Some reviewers complained of the sound, it's good for me, can be a bit hard to hear but turn up the volume a bit and works perfect. I don't really use the smart tv feature but I tested it. Looks amazing with netflix, youtube, and a bunch of other apps. Connects to a wireless network flawlessly. I use it as my computer monitor and games like Skyrim and Dead Space 3 look amazing. If your looking for a good priced LED HDTV look no further. So far it's perfect.

Pros: Light as a feather, perfect clear 1080p, autodim for bright or dark rooms, connects flawlessly to wireless network, perfect size for a bedroom, Smart TV works really well (requires no skills to use)

Cons: Only 32 inch's, speakers not located in front, dim feature makes screen too dark (can be turned off),

Samaritan Samsung

PatD from Hurricane,WV on 12/22/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted a small flat screen TV with sophisticated features. This is the one. My 32" Samsung was pretty simple to set up, has a great picture and streams internet content over my wifi connection. I'm a happy camper. Oh, and it didn't cost a fortune either.

Pros: Small size, great picture, and simple to set up.

Cons: Weak sound unless you're connected to a sound system

Another amazing Samsung

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice but was too small. Aspect Ratio was a bit thin for me. Also had a funny smell that did not go away. Wifi was weak and slow. Used my Roku instead. Return for larger size. Always a pleasure with Crutchfield service, simply the greatest!

Cons: none!

Extremely Disappointing

Erin from San Francisco on 10/26/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This tv has been nothing but disappointing. The setup was easy but there were glitches, the apps are glitchy (Netflix will load a video, play litereally 3 seconds of that video then load again EVERY OTHER TIME! this never happened with my wii) and sometimes it will just stop and disconnect from the internet even though my internet is working. It even admitted that to me "We see you have a signal but we can't connect" Then after 5 minutes, it connects. And the remote is awkward, it's hard to find the right button, even the "light" button doesn't work. Once you're able to find it, you have to press it twice for the backlight to come on...what's the point of that? I was willing to pay the extra money for a tv that could do everything, but this thing can't do any of that very well so i might as well buy a dumb tv.

Pros: Picture quality

Cons: All the "smart" features, remote control, sound.

Crutchfield response on 10/28/2013 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We own a Samsung 65inch flatscreen & I expected the 32inch to be at least as clear - not so. The Sharp TV we replaced was more HD.

Pros: slim border/frame, easy set up

Cons: Clarity not as expected

Great TV with all the options.

Kevin from Newport, RI on 9/14/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I own two of these TVs and been happy with both. Great sound, great picture, easy operation. Only complaint is that the WiFi signal seems to drop out frequently interrupting App operation and forcing a manual input to restart.

Pros: Great picture. Great sound. Easy operation and setup.

Cons: Occasional WiFi dropout that forces manual App restart.

Cons: None.

Great TV! Faster apps!! Eco Solution actually works without being obvious!

Pros: Faster apps, input switching, etc, Eco solution works far better than professors. Thin bezel makes picture appear larger! Built in Skype!

Cons: Apps still aren't uniform Across Samsung TV's Price wasn't the best!

Great TV

PH from Dallas, TX on 6/2/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This TV looks great. Very lightweight with a thin profile. Picture and sound are great. Internet features seem a bit weak/slow through wireless connection. Would definitely recommend the TV despite this issue.

Pros: Picture is excellent. Sound is very good considering the thin TV profile. TV is on a rotating stand which is a nice feature.

Cons: Internet features seem a bit slow through wireless 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 ths 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.

  • HDMI (v.1.4): The Samsung LED-LCD TV features three HDMI 1.4 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).

    • 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.

Audio Features

DTS Premium Sound: The Samsung LED-LCD TV offers DTS Premium Sound with DTS TruSurround and DTS TruDialog.

  • DTS TruSurround: DTS TruSurround is a patented DTS technology that solves the problem of playing 5.1 multichannel content over two speakers. DTS 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.
  • DTS TruDialog: This function allows you to increase the intensity of a voice over background music or sound effects so that dialogue  can be heard more clearly.

Dolby Digital Pulse: Optimizes the TV sound quality when viewing and listening to Internet movies, Internet music, and other content played back from your wired or wireless network connection.

5-Band EQ + Sound Modes: 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; or simply choose from the following Preset Sound Modes:

  • Standard: Selects the normal sound mode.
  • Music: Emphasizes music over voices.
  • Movie: Provides the best sound for movies.
  • Clear Voice: Emphasizes voices over other sounds.
  • Amplify: Amplify mode is for people who have difficulty hearing.

Audio Enhancements: The Samsung TV offers a variety of audio adjustments to meet your listening needs.

  • 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.
  • Picture Off: You can turn the television's screen off and still listen to audio.

Audio Outputs: The Samsung LED-LCD television provides an analog and digital audio output.

  • Digital Audio (Dolby Digital/DTS compatible): The optical digital output terminal will output Dolby Digital/DTS (when available) or 2 channel PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital/DTS when receiving Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the tuner, network apps, and USB ports on the LED-LCD TV. The optical digital audio output will only output in 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI or  RCA.
  • Analog Audio: The television features a 3.5mm (minijack) audio output for connecting the television to an analog 2-channel receiver. You will need a minijack-to-RCA adapter (119MCON2M, sold separately) to make a stereo RCA connection between the television and your soundbar speaker or AV receiver. The TV's analog audio output terminals will output 2ch audio from any of the television's source inputs.

ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The audio from the TV's tuner, network connection, and USB port can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch PCM. HDMI and analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.

Note:  Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 2 input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.

Network/USB Functions
