great picture and acceptable sound quality on TV speakers for office and bedroom use.
At first I couldn't figure out what I was looking at. My Samsung plasma quit after five years. Went online and found plasma has been phased out. Had I known I would've purchased a more superior OLED higher end set. It blows so much I'm thinking of giving it away.
Cons:Crutchfield response on 5/8/2018 We're sorry you're disappointed with your TV.

Great picture and sound. Excellent remote. Easy set-up supported by Crutchfield's industry leading service. You won't go wrong.
I can't believe how well my television shows broadcast on this TV. Some of them look like they're LIVE. I'm not exaggerating. I had friends over on Saturday night and two of them asked me that very question "is this a live broadcast?" I'm so lucky I purchased this TV when I did and got it for the price that I did. Our office was having an electronics recycle day where we can bring in things to recycle (printers, scanners, TVs, etc.). I've been wanting a new living room TV, so I decided to shop at Crutchfield and found the Samsung. It was so easy to set-up physically and electronically. My cable system is DISH.
Pros: Easy to set up both physically and electronically
Cons: Remote super, super sensitive. You might get frustrated when you're using it to navigate the set-up screens, so TAKE YOUR TIME.
Love it! Just the right size for a kitchen TV and the picture is great.
I bought the TV to have for young guests/grandkids to have so they can play their games and they love it!!!
Pros: very functional TV with a fantastic picture!! Clear, bright and colorful
Picture is good - but after hooking up a separate speaker, suddenly, 1 to 3 times per day, the TV Sound will suddenly come on - without the the TV being turned on! The speaker (connected via fiber) is evidently picking up stray signals within the TV circuitry and thinking the TV is ''on' and starts playing the sound which clearly is always 'on' internally - even though the TV is 'off'. Cannot decide what to do at this point
Pros: Good PIX, easy setup
Cons: poor sound circuitry designCrutchfield response on 4/10/2018 Steve, we're sorry you're having issues with the sound on your TV. If the problem continues, please just reach out to our Tech Support team. They can help you solve the problem or set up a return within 60 days of purchase. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
We have two TV's in our home. One larger older LED is connected to cable thru a HD box. This Samsung is connected to cable without a HD box. The TV also receives over the air digital signals. The stations that we receive from the digital transmissions are clear, sharp and a great improvement over the older TV it replaced. The analog stations, which are the majority, are not as crisp and sharp as the digital and I am a bit disappointed. The rumor from our cable provider is that in the near future they will eliminate the analog transmission and we will need to upgrade our connection with a HD box. Another expense. Overall, we are satisfied with the quality of the picture, ease of setup, and sound.
Pros: Connected to HD cable, great picture and sound.
Cons: Without HD connection, fair picture and sound qualityl
I bought this for my father (90 and slightly deaf) to replace his ancient crt. A dramatic improvement, brilliant color and sharp picture. A few notes about sound settings that were not explained in the manual: Standard mode audio setting is the normal standard audio range from the TV. Optimized mode helps to improve the quality of sound from the internal hardware of the TV (especially music). Amplify preset mode indicates to the TV that it needs to amplify the audio for voices. For a simple setup (not 5.1, just basic stereo) I recommend changing the HDMI input Audio Format from Bitstream to PCM. Also, check the settings on your cable box. Dad's Fios set top box was set to less than 1080x1920 and the sound was set to mono by default.
Pros: I contacted Samsung support with a few technical questions and received a comprehensive reply within 24 hours.
Cons: The paper manual is very limited, and the onscreen manual is much better, but lacks detail.
The picture is beautiful. My only issue is some of the remote functions are a bit complicated and not intuitive.
Great tv. Easy to set up. Rusty rocks!
Pros: Easy set up!
very well pleased with performance so far. easy set up,and no problem with the shipment as it was well protected inside.
Pros: very good picture and sound. easy set up
Cons: none at this time
Nice lightweight TV. Good picture. Good value.
Our first digital TV, not subscribing to cable and too remote for outdated,analog broadcast TV. We had been using our old CRT Sony 25" to watch videocassettes and, more recently, DVDs, but were intrigued by the possibility of a smart TV to receive streaming Netflix and Amazon on a larger screen. The Samsung was recommended because of its 32 inch 1080 pixel screen, which is a quantum leap in improvement over the 25" CRT. It took some time and effort to comprehend the access to source contact offered as part of the Smart TV function, and the support in terms of info provided with the unit is less than optimal. A local tech person alerted us to the benefit of using the Youtube app to troubleshoot occasional disconnection from our local wireless network. We also required an adapter to accept the (optical) audio signal out of the tv to run it thru our home receiver/speaker set up, but that has worked fine once the correct adjustments were made.
Pros: great HD picture (1080 pixel 32") light weight worked well with the screw-in stand (wall mount extra) very competitive price
Cons: not intuitive for codgers, takes some getting used to in the absence of hard copy written manual (on line manual available). We needed a separate adapter and cord to take the optical audio out to our old home receiver.
Got this UN32M5300 at another store. The picture was great(1080i). The sound kept going on and off. Changed from the factory setting of digital audio out to PCM. The issue stopped. I reset it again to digital audio out and the issue returned. I was unable to use my sound bar as it was designed to work on digital audio out not PCM. The speakers are too tiny to give a decent sound on the TV. I was left with no choice but to return the TV as I need to use a sound bar. I purchased another brand and everything is working as it should be.
great picture for a small TV
Excellent set for small living room and limited install space. Upgrade from a 28 inch set that was getting to be a bit hard to pick out detail. Reasonable sound from speakers in set, but will feed to my amp and speakers. Good price for a TV set and don't really want a expensive cinema experience.
Pros: Good picture, features, wanted size, reasonable price
Cons: No mention of audio output being digital on fiber optic cable requiring a converter to use phono cable to hook up to older amplifier. Had to figure that out for myself.
I just received and installed this TV in our bedroom to replace an older smaller TV. It works great with easy to use features and has a good clear picture. I was a little skeptical about the sound after reading previous reviews and did find the sound was pretty poor so I ordered a sound bar to compensate. However, before my new Bose sound bar arrives in a day or two, I decided to check out the audio settings to make sure I could turn off the TV speakers so the only sound would be from the sound bar. What I discovered was that I could change the sound from the TV speakers to a different format which turned out to be 100% better than the original sound from the TV speakers. Here's the change I made: From the Settings menu go to Sound, then select Sound Mode & Optimized. This made an incredible difference in the TV sound quality. I haven't received the Sound Bar yet but intend now to connect it to our larger TV in the great room and eliminate and old amplifier there which was an alternate plan anyway. I now find the sound from this Samsung TV very acceptable without the additional Sound Bar and am very pleased with its overall performance and appearance. Excellent value.
Pros: All good
Cons: none now
La entrega la hicienron como se habian quedado y el T.V. esta funcionando lo mas bien mi nieto esta contento con el
Perfect for small viewing spaces. Outstanding picture and performance.
Pros: Offers a pretty picture, small footprint and useful specifications. Ideal for a personal gym, office or children's playspace.
Crutchfield got this TV to me in 2 days, free shipping! The tv performs excellent for movies and gaming is way better than my old sanyo due to a bigger screen and way better graphics. It's unbelievably light as well at just 9 pounds. The remote is very nice and has a good range. Setting up the tv to wi-fi was nice, I just wish the controller had a mini keyboard or something because having to type out email and passwords is slow when you have to do it with a directional pad. My only complaint is the speakers. My old tv had integrated Dolby sound and just for a tv, it sounded pretty good. This tv on the other hand has tinny sounding speakers and the case rattles when you turn the volume up past 20. I definitely recommend ordering a sound bar at the same time from Crutchfield. The "smart tv" part is very easy to use and works quickly. You have a large number of apps you can install and use right on the tv. The settings are easy to use as well and allow a lot of adjustability to the picture. Game mode helps out a lot since I play a lot of Xbox. The frame rate is awesome and makes gaming a lot more fun. I'd definitely recommend buying this tv and definitely recommend getting it from Crutchfield.
Pros: Fast, easy to use, amazing picture, versatile menus, light weight, sleek looking design, great controller design
Cons: Sound quality from speakers, no keyboard to type in email address, passwords, etc. on various apps
I purchased the unit to replace an older system. The quality of the picture, apps and sound (considering the price) I am extremely happy with the purchase.
Pros: Picture, apps and sleek design
Cons: Good sound for the price but could've slightly better. Not really a con just a suggestion for improvement
I Iove my tv haven't had chance to use apps yet, just a matter of time, but i'm sure once I learn how I will LOVE that feature also....
Cons: Haven't had long enough
This TV is perfect for my daughter getting ready to go to college. She doesn't watch cable and does everything on line. This has a 5 GHz Wi-Fi card and allows her to watch all of her shows and listen to music wirelessly. She also loves being able to control the TV from her I-phone App. The TV is incredibly light and will be easy for her to move. I just wish my FRAME TV had the same Wi-Fi capability, as that keeps on running out of bandwidth when I try to watch streaming content!!!
Pros: Good all round TV. Especially for the internet.
Cons: My daughter would say the sound quality when listening to her music. But I am sure a sound bar or something will sort that out.
Pros: Starts Instantly ! Works great with my Crutchfield home system !
Cons: I would have rated this TV a 5 star but the sound has issues.
Love my new Samsung TV. Light weight, easy to hang on wall, and great picture. Also a great price. Only problem I am having is getting the tv connected to external speakers correctly. I installed a digital to analog converter and speakers work, but the volume remotes for both the Samsung and cable box don't work. I'll be calling Crutchfield shortly to see if this is correctable.
The control is very user unfriendly and the instructions are vey poor I returned this item
The picture and sound are just super. Makes the old shows even the black and white shows look real good. I have alot of syfy dvds like Voyage to the bottom of the sea. Time tunnel, Stargate and Tons of movies. The tv also hooks up to the inter net and with that my Roku brings my NHL center Ice package never miss a game. GO LEAFS GO ! I like what Crutchfield has to offer. The service is really good and so are their people. Great job as always ! Very happy with purchase.
Pros: excellent picture, set-up.It was delivered on time.
Great screen definition, set-up in minutes. Has all the features I wanted for a good price. Perfect for a small room. Great buy.
Pros: Great picture, set-up, weight, profile, wifi read
TV is ok. Nothing that blows me away. You may want to consider a different TV if you plan to hang this on a wall as the power cord adapter is only 53 inches. If you hang more than 53 inches high you will have a big black box just hanging on the wall about a foot off the floor.
Pros: Decent picture
Cons: Short power cord for hanging.
I contacted Crutchfield for a good over the air antenna based TV and they quickly suggested the Samsung UN32M5300. After a fast and easy set-up and scanning channels I receive more channels than I have of the four TVs I have with a standard HDTV antenna. Has a convenient TV guide. Good sound. Happy with purchase.
Pros: excellent value
Cons: poor sound
Great picture and nice selection of applications. I like having the ability to directly connect the TV to the internet via ethernet.
Has all the features we wanted for a good price. Perfect for a small room.
Nice TV for the basement/workout area. Great value and as usual, great customer service & shipping. Thanks, Crutchfield.
Great overall value in a small TV. Has all the features needed and great picture simple to operate
Pros: Cost and quality, easy setup and you can never go wrong buying from Crutchfield !
Cons: Have not found any as of yet
The setup was as easy as it gets. No need to look at the instructions. The picture looks crisp and vibrant.
Pros: Setup, picture, weight, profile
great picture would buy again crutchfield is the best
We were not aware of the beautiful pictures on a JD screen. Needless to say we are delighted by the great quality. Sometimes we even feel that we are right there in the picture.
Samsung M5300 is an "ok" TV. Sharp picture when displaying graphics, but I was disappointed with overall picture quality. Motion handling is sub-par, and TV blacks are inconsistent in a dark room. Very easy setup, but few options for advanced setting for video and audio. On the downside, the audio is very poor - tinny. Sadly the frame also vibrates when volume is high, and especially when playing music (bass/low frequencies) such as in movies or watching concert. I will be returning the monitor and look for something else.
Pros: Easy setup process. Low weight enables easy table placement.
Cons: Plastic frame vibrates at standard audio levels. Problem very discernible when low frequencies are playing (music, movie)
Wonderful color, great features, good price. The main reason I purchase from Crutchfield is the product arrives in a factory sealed box. They are one of the few vendors that distinguish and discount if the boxes have been previously opened. Great way to insure I continue to purchase products. Thank you.
The picture is clear and sharp. The set up was easy. If using cable make sure you have HDMI HD cableb box.
Review the product online. Called store and tv was pulled from stock and waiting for me to pick up. Excellent customer service. I was nervous about the setup since I am technically challenged. Walked thru setup prompts and tv was set up. Then synced the receiver remote with the tv.
Really great picture and surprisingly good sound for a 32" TV. Easy to setup and a nice improvement over my old 27" Sony CRT.
Pros: Picture quality especially on Blu-ray movies.
Cons: None so far.
This TV was purchased as a gift for my Mom, who was in need of a LED TV because she will be eventually moving to smaller living quarters where a flat screen will be required. The Samsung UN32M5300 provides good quality picture image, with sufficient volume for Mom's needs. It should be noted that some older cable boxes that operate solely on coaxial cable will not provide high resolution image quality, and it is likely that if perhaps your old TV set worked with coaxial cable, upgrading to a new cable box that connects via HDMI cable will vastly improve picture quality. Family was able to accomplish setting up Mom's new TV, cable box and remote control the same afternoon that the TV arrived. (You might find that a call to either Crutchfield's or your Cable Provider's tech support lines will greatly increase your chances of getting the job done more quickly than trying to figure it out yourself.) Thank you Crutchfield, for providing a great product and honoring your price drop refund policy which saved us an extra money!
Pros: Great picture quality, sufficient volume for needs, outstanding customer service tech support regards setup.
Cons: Image quality is likely dependent on HDMI cable connection to cable box. Cable box upgrade was necessary before image quality improved.
TV has a quality picture with a full gamut of features including on screen guide. It was easy to install legs and set up remote. Well worth the price for a 1080p unit.
Sharp picture with easy setup and very good sound at a great price
Overall, this a good TV for the money.
Great picture and one of the few 1080p sets of 32" size. Easy set up.
Pros: Great picture in small size set.
Cons: Sound is just average.
Great TV, great price! And as always, top notch support from the people at Crutchfield.
Pros: Terrific picture
I'm not a fan of big screen tvs, for me 32inch TVs are optimal, and this one works extremely well. Set-up and use is intuitive, very easy!
Pros: ease of set-up, good sound, clear & sharp picture
Cons: can't come up with one
It's great! The picture and sound are amazing!
Outstanding picture and decent sound. The only improvement would be an analog audio output.
Great picture. Easy to setup. Easy online ordering with crutchfield and fast delivery.
Excellent value in a small, light TV. We needed a television to fit into a previously built in CRT TV. This filled the bill at a reasonable price.
So a 5 star. Yes, however, this is day one. Picture quality is terrific even right out of the box with default settings. Initially I connected to internet with the ethernet cable and there was a program update for the tv. Next I connected wireless. TV is upstairs and router is downstairs. I am getting a solid connection with 100 percent signal strength. For the Over the Air broadcast stations I am using an old indoor antenna. It is just a flat two wire cable that splits to a T shape at the end and has about 18 inches of anntenna going out from each side of the T. I am picking up 20 stations, solid and crsytal clear. I am located about twenty five miles away from the broadcast towers. The sound is fine. Given they can not fit large speakers inside a flat screen TV the sound is actually better than I expected. I will be attaching a sound bar with a subwoofer, for movie watching. The USB port came in handy for putting in the ID and password for netflix and samsung. Attaching a keyboard than using a remote. I will try to remember to update this review a few months from now. A tip of the hat to Crutchfield. I had a delivery issue created by UPS. They put the tv on the wrong truck and then decided the delivery address was bad. UPS returned the tv to Crutchfield. Crutchfield turned a new shipment around very quickly and I had the tv the next day. It was great to be able to speak to ACTUAL people at Crutchfield. They did a terrific job on fixing that issue.
Pros: Easy setup. Solid Over the Air broadcast reception. Wireless connection for internet is easy to setup and provides a strong connection. Excellent picture quality
Cons: Sound is fine, but not great, but I did not expect it to be great. This is not my first flat panel tv, so I will be using a sound bar to improve the sound quality.

Built-in HDTV Tuner: The Samsung TV features a built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Clear QAM tuner, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals (up to 1080i); subscription still required to receive cable channels. A single RF-type coaxial input is use to connect an external indoor/outdoor antenna (sold separately).
ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel within the television's HDMI 2 input enables the 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.
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.
Optical Digital Output: The TV's optical digital output terminal will output Dolby Digital or DTS (when available), as well as DTS Neo 2.5 or 2ch PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital or DTS when receiving Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the tuner, network apps, HDMI inputs, or USB ports. The optical digital audio output will only output in 2ch stereo from analog connected sources.
Note: This TV does not contain any analog audio outputs.
DTS Premium Sound: The Samsung Full HD TV employs DTS Premium Sound processing which will decode DTS-encoded content, such as TV programming, Blu-ray movies, and streaming media, as well as processes stereo content to deliver an optimized virtual surround sound experience with enhanced bass response, clear dialog, and consistent volume levels through the TV speakers.
Equalizer: You can manually adjusts the TV's built-in 7-band EQ (100, 200, 500, 1k, 2k, 5k, & 10k Hz) for a more customized sound; or simply choose from the following EQ Preset Modes - Standard, Optimized, or Amplify.
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.
Wireless Speaker Connectivity: The Samsung TV provides wireless connectivity to compatible Samsung SoundConnect soundbar speaker systems and Samsung Multiroom Link speaker systems.

1) I've always been impressed with my items from Crutchfield; 2) you can't go wrong when you buy from them; 3) if anything goes hinky, you can call them for help or for a refund; 4) why would you shop anywhere else. I need a new TV for my living room and we're having a recycling day on Thursday, so I can get rid of my old TV and put my new TV in it's place. [ Annabelle Apr 09, 2018 ]

one for the out side room and ty ray [ Sherman Dec 28, 2017 ]
Old 19" CRT has picture starting to blur so I'm replacing it with this 32" Samsung Flat Screen. I need a built in tuner as rain or snow stops satellite reception and the local channels have many sub channels that our satellite provider does not carry. 32" is the perfect size for the bedroom - not too small and not too big. Good price on sale. Crutchfield has always delivered great products and service - I've been a customer for a long time. [ Kenneth Dec 28, 2017 ]

Parents need something bigger than the computer sized tv they have been suffering with for years, but refused upgrades until now. Samsung quality is important. [ THOMAS Nov 27, 2017 ]
I needed a smart TV that, when rotated 90 degrees, had a width less than 24 inches so that it could be hidden behind a cabinet. [ Robert Nov 27, 2017 ]
We have several other Samsung products, TV's ,etc. and appreciate the quality built-in. We also appreciate Crutchfield's service - the best! [ James Nov 26, 2017 ]
Replacement for earlier version of a 32" Samsung. Samsung has always exceeded my expectations in performance and I have been doing business with Crutchfield for over 20 years and is the go to merchant for audio and video equipment!

I have had good luck with the brand [ M Sep 03, 2017 ]
I picked this tv because it had the features that I wanted, it is a 2017 model and the purchase price was better than all other sellers. For electronics I typically use Crutchfield. Shipping is free and I receive the products within two days of ordering. With Amazon, free shipping is now taking anywhere from 5 to 7 days. [ Keith Aug 29, 2017 ]

Carolyn, sorry to say but unit does not come with HDMI cable, you must supply your own, hope this helps. The TV does live up to all expectations very good picture and overall quality. Bobbie [ Bobbie Feb 13, 2018 ]
It connects to the internet such as Netflix, don't know about direct tv [ Oscar Jan 22, 2018 ]
Yes, it is! [ Donna Boyce Jan 22, 2018 ]
I cannot answer this question because the TV was purchased for someone else [ JEAN Jan 22, 2018 ]
I think so, but I am not using that feature. [ Michael Jan 22, 2018 ]
Mine does not. We don't use it every day, but occasionally it will be on for 3 hours or more. No issues. [ Peter Jan 03, 2018 ]
I purchased a Samsung UN32M5300 as a gift for my daughter. She had the same problem. I had heard that Samsung shipped their TVs in 'DEMO' mode by default. Apparently that mode 'shuts off' if 'untouched' after a fixed time. I checked her manual and found out how to turn DEMO mode off. Now all is well. (As for 'shutting on'?, I don't know what that could be?) [ James Del Dec 27, 2017 ]
We have not experienced any issues with the Un32M5300 shutting on and off. [ Keith Dec 26, 2017 ]
I have not experienced that issue with the UN32M5300, but it is used in an office setting and doesn't get much play. [ TIMOTHY Dec 26, 2017 ]
Ours sometimes fails to detect the incoming cable signal. Unplugged and replugging the connection to the cable box usually resets it. Hasn't happens lately. [ John Dec 26, 2017 ]
Try checking on youtube, you'll be amazed of how many people are have this ongoing problem! [ joe Dec 26, 2017 ]
I have not experienced this problem with this set or any other Samsung TV [ Tom Dec 26, 2017 ]
I wish it did, but it does not. [ Oscar Nov 14, 2017 ]
Don't honestly know, but I found their customer service helpful. I'm sure they could answer your question. [ Timothy Nov 13, 2017 ]
The ZVOX SoundBase V320 features an optical audio input and even came packaged originally with a 6.5' optical cable. The Samsung has the matching optical output you can use for connection to this input. I hope that helps. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan [ Ryan Nov 01, 2017 ] Staff
