Samsung UE40J5100 Review : Top class, picture, sound, and set up

Good picture but only two hdmi ports.

I am making it a smart tv by using the hdmi slots using chromecast and a firestick.

One end looked like it had been stood in a puddle & the. Arrived a couple of days earlier than the quoted delivery date. Was a bit worried once i got the box in the house, one end looked like it had been stood in a puddle & the cardboard was starting to disintegrate. However, all was well inside the packaging. This has replaced a 32′ samsung & is a nice bit of kit. The sound is particularly impressive with no need for a soundbar.

LG Electronics 32LF5610 Deals : Great TV, easy setup

It might help you to know that there is no vga input on this tvthere are two hdmi inputs. So to connect your pc to this tv , you may need to buy a vga to hdmi converter with sound. You may find , like me that the converter gets rid of any noise/interference when using the 3. 5 mm audio socket ( from your pc ) for outputting to a amp etc.

Fast delivery, quality picture and soundcheers.

This is my third lg tv and i absolutely love the quality of the picture on this one. I never buy less than 1080p. I am very disappointed with the epg on this tv compared to my others. When you press the ‘guide’ button the sound cuts out and you can’t ‘page up’ or ‘down’ the program guide list, which i find very annoying.

This is not a freeview hd tv. You need a 32lf561v to get freeview hd. The tv itself is great, good appearance, picture and sound, but i need a freeview hd tuner to get all the channels.

Bought as a tv for our static caravan. An attractive device when off and, when on, the picture is very good. The sound is good enough for us to dispense with the extra speakers we used to use. On some channels the sound is a bit low even on maximum volume but this may be due to transmission issues rather than the tv.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great TV, easy setup
  • Attractive and good tv
  • A Pleasant Surprise
  • I use this screen for gaming. Superb picture quality, highly recommend.
  • A great tv at a good price
  • Great apart from EPG

Very pleased with this tv, in spite of my bias towards lg and their sometimes lacking build quality i was pleasantly surprised at how nicely this thing is put together. The picture is crispy and i can’t begin to say how much i don’t miss smart tv functions.

Lg always delivers a grade quality. . Typical lg tv, brilliant build quality, great response time for gaming and very deep and vibrant colours.

Not that it makes any difference to the viewing, just can’t get over the fact it feels the same weight as my tablet. Great for mounting on the wall though.I haven’t got the hang of using the menu yet. It’s not very straightforward.

Fantastic tv – though the restriction of attached peripherals (webcam for example) to propietary devices is a little dispappointing as previous samsung smart tv worked very happily with my logitech c920 webcam. Apart from that is a great tv – a+++.

Really pleased with the picture quality.

Comments from buyers

“A Great Mid-Range TV, great tv and price recommend, Excellent purchase!, Lovely picture and performance, Excellent TV! Super glad I bought it, Really great t.v. for a great price !”

What a cracking tv , very impressed.

The 48 inch is a great size, and i don’t actually know how i was getting by without a smart tv before haha. It’s making me want to watch all my favourite box sets again (previously watched using netflix on a laptop) so i can appreciate them properly. Yes, the picture quality isn’t as amazing with the non-hd channels, but i assume that’s because the tv is so big, and you get used to it anyway – the picture is incredible on the hd channels and also when i watch netflix/amazon prime. In fact, it’s making me want to watch all my favourite box sets again (previously watched on my laptop) so i can appreciate them in all their glory. My only actual complaints are that the remote control sometimes has a bit of a delay which can be frustrating if you’re impatient like me, and that the remote doesn’t have a ‘light up the buttons’ button like my old samsung one did. Also, the stand the telly comes on is a bit flimsy for such a big screen, but that’s not a problem if you intend to wall mount it. Those are only little niggles though, and on the whole i’m very happy with it and wish i’d gotten one soonerp.

Picture quality is stunning.

Sony KDL-43W755C 43 inch Smart Full HD TV – Too many problems after a few months of ownership.

Keep with it and you’ll get there. Great start:bought on january 1st 2016, especially attracted by the android smart facility. Initial setup was very straight-forward. Connected to virgin media’s digital subscription box via hdmi and to internet via ethernet cable (or wifi). ‘screen cast’ facility from android phone worked great, though some devices only cast from specific apps due to their own restrictions. Downloading apps and using smart features is also straight-forward…although be warned, it seems you’ll be stuck with opera web browser. Tried to download chrome but couldn’t find it on google play store. It may be a restricted or ‘sony’ skin on android. Temporary hiccup:did software update on 2nd january and casting facility stopped working. Spent days looking for solutions.

Really happy with this tv, easy to setup, installed software updates straight away and i’m blown away by the android os, very slick. Comes pre-installed with netflix, amazon prime tv etc. Picture is great out of the box, though the latitude for customising is huge. Sound is surprisingly good too. The actual tv is stunning as well, as usual sony have produced a very good looking unit.

It was a tough time deciding if i should upgrade my 40 inch sony lcd tv. Amazon had a lightning deal on so i decided to take the plunge. I did think twice about getting a hd rather than a 4k or curved tv. I ruled 4k out as i expect you need to still really close to anything less than 60 inch to appreciate the picture. Curved was ruled out as we view the tv from more than one seat. After having the tv for a few days, i’m really impressed with it. I bought a sony soundboard a week before and they work really good together. I’m glad i upgraded from the previous set.

  • Great Picture, not so smart though. (Updated) Improving!
  • Great looks but most definitely not Smart.
  • Great picture, great interface, great build quality.
  • A very good unit (You can tell a lot of effort has been put on it)
  • Too many problems after a few months of ownership.
  • Sony KDL-55W755C for £579 – very good smart TV

Great picture, not so smart though. Short and sweet version, the picture quality is great, android tv less so. I have been watching the new sony sets for a while and was torn between ordering a new version sony device or stay safe with the older models. In the end i decided to jump and buy the latest model. The picture quality is great at this price, though as other reviews have already noted the remote is very cheap feeling compared to other sony remotes i have used. Android however is disappointing, its network function is flaky and at times slow. I hate having to reboot my telly because the software has crashed and no longer allows me to change input again. I have applied the latest version of the software but for the moment that makes it no better. Streaming films from my synology box is hit and miss because for the moment it is not always ‘visible’ in the videos app.

Fantastic picture quality, highly recommended. The android feature is brilliant, i have not had any problems with it. Easily able to install kodi. The only downside to this tv is that the remote feels a bit flimsy. Additionally, the sound is not the best, however this is the case with the majority of new tv’s.

Decided not to spend the extra money on 4k as didnt think it was worth the price yet as 4k isn’t used enough to warrant the price. My internet is only about 10mb/s which isnt good enough for streaming 4k content. Looking through reviews it seemed to be one of the best non 4k tv out there and the picture quality if very clear. I dont use the android features much as i have it connected to my xbox one and sky which does nearly everything i need it to do anyway. Would definitely recommend this tv and it is a fantastic price compared to others.

According to those in the know the w755 range is as good as full hd will ever get and with my. After reading numerous expert reviews on the bewildering array of new tv’s and new technology i realised i don’t really need a curved screen, i will never watch 3d (can’t wear glasses) and there is nothing to watch in 4k. According to those in the know the w755 range is as good as full hd will ever get and with my limited knowledge i agree with everything they said, including the wobbly stand and speech getting swamped when there’s lots of background sound. I even followed their setup advice and can not fault the picture quality – apparently it’s so good it could be mistaken for 4k. To be honest i don’t really need a 55′ screen either but it is nice.

Sony KDL-50W755C 50 inch Smart Full HD TV, Too many problems after a few months of ownership.

Great picture, great interface, great build quality. . I spent weeks reading reviews, watching reviews, reading forums, walking in and out of stores to look at models i had seen before finally biting the bullet and buying this. It was the one tv that i kept coming back to, and i am extremely pleased with the decision. Picture quality, the sharpness of the image is great. The colour reproduction is great. The detail in blacks is great. It’s been a massive step up from my old 2010 samsung, which i had previously thought represented a good quality picture. The border is impossibly thin, and the whole thing has a monolithic appearance, the brushed metal frame really gives it a premium look and feel. If you told me this was an apple product, i would believe you. The unit is also incredibly thin.

All round, incredibly good tv. Just bought this tv from argos (£30 more expensive at £679. 99, but i wanted it there and then, so paid the extra)i’ve got to say, it is by far and away the best tv i’ve ever owned. I’ve owned a few large screened full hd tv’s over the last few years, and none of them have come close to thisthe picture quality is incredible, in freeview hd and also in the built in netflix/youtube app (not tried a bluray yet) some of the crispiest hd i’ve seen.I have no idea how it sounds as i use a wireless set of earphones, but from what i have read, it sounds very good. The setup wasn’t as bad as some have suggested, only downside was how long the installation of the initial update took, i wasn’t timing, but by my reckoning it was around 20-25 minutes just for it to install. It sits on the installing screen not really doing anything, so i was starting to wonder if it had crashed, but do not unplug it, its definitely working away in the background, just be patientthe software/ui experience is very pleasent, and also much quicker than tv’s i’ve had in the past. I was really surprised by this, as i had become so used to laggy/slow tv ui’s that i just assumed that’s how they all were. Not this oneno complaints from me about the remote. It is a bit plasticy, but the addition of the dedicated netflix button is genius.

Sony kdl-55w755c for £579 – very good smart tv. I bought the kdl-55w755c on 2015 boxing day lightening deal, normal price listed then was £749 and i paid £579. (i contemplated buying the 55 inch sony 4k or 3d but decided in the end these were features would be wasted on me. I was always going to buy a sony bravia though. Japanese brands, particularly sony, are in my opinion far superior to other brands where tvs are concerned. My previous main tv was a 50′ lg, which was ok and far cheaper but i had problems with the remote sensor on the actual tv after 2 years. I’ve also got a sharp aquos, panasonic, another lg and another old 55′ bravia which still works pretty well despite its age, its just heavy)anyway the new smart sony bravia just arrived this morning and i have been testing various features and so far i have been very happy. From unboxing to complete set-up (fixing the stand, wi-fi, google, tuning and including downloading new youview features) it probably took about 2 hours.

Sony KDL-50W755C 50 inch Smart Full HD TV – Black : Ok so i noticed after a couple of days the backlight on this tv was pretty bad so i got it replaced however the replacement was significantly worse. Now no edgelit led tv will be perfect unfortunately and it’s something we all have to put up with to an acceptable level but both sets was deemed unacceptable even by sony when looking at the images i sent over. I have now gone for another brand tv but can appreciate that it’s not the model number that is plagued with this issue just bad luck. My first w7 performed brilliantly and i gave it rave reviews across the board as it was undoubtedly the best 1080p set i’ve owned in not just pq but sound, features and the brilliant android operating system. My second set crashed a handful of times i might add but the first didn’t. All i can say now is if you opted for this tv it should perform brilliantly but please check the backlight via running a backlight bleed test via youtube within a dark environment.

Blaupunkt 40/122T Deals : Pleased with larger size – i can see a lot

Once you fit the stand to the tv which is a few screws your up and running. Have to say picture quality is excellent. It has 4 hdmi slots with an a rating. So cost to run per year is 88 kw which aint bad at all. What i can say is at this moment this is an excellent tv and to get a 40 inch tv of this quality for 179gbp + free delivery is excellent. Update: tv stopped working so got in touch with the company and i have to say the service received was just amazing. They picked up the faulty tv from the door and dropped off a new one a few days later. No problems since and just because i had a problem with the first tv i would still highly recommend this company and the items it sells.

Pleased with larger size – i can see a lot. Had a bit of difficulty tuning in, but helped via email (and detaching both boxes plus leads) – problem sorted. Pleased with larger size – i can see a lot more than i used to. The price for this item is excellent value for money and i am glad i bought it. Sound on tv alone is much better than on either of my two recording boxes, much louder.

Definitely a 5 star television only problem broken plug other than that fantastic television definitely recommended. Here are the specifications for the Blaupunkt 40″ Freeview HD & USB media player:

LG 49LF510V 49″ Full HD LED TV – Only has 1 Hdmi connection

V with a really good picture for the price we paid but it has no connections for external devices like sound bars or anything that needs an hdmi unless you buy a spitter.

A lot of screen for not a lot of money. It’s cheap because it only has 1 x hdmi & 1 x usb port, but if you connect your audio equipment to either a digibox or amp, the lack of connectivity makes no difference whatsoever. Not sure why, but it also has an ethernet port which increases both the number of channels and picture quality when connected. It is not a smart tv, but if you’ve using sky, bt vision, virgin media, amazon fire or any of the other boxes on the market, there is absolutely no reason to have a smart tv. This was the cheapest way to get a quality large screen tv and if you can get passed the lack of functions that you will inevitably have in other parts of your set up, it is an absolute bargain.

Superb picture, low price, but only one hdmi connection. I recently purchased this tv. It has amazing picture quality, even when upscaling 720p it looks wonderful. Colours are natural and blacks are rich. The price is very low, but the catch is there’s only one hdmi connection. I got around this by buying a hdmi switch which was €10.

“Excellent Picture Quality”

Our previous television was a 42” plasma bought in 2009, it still gives a good picture, and is better than most current lcd televisions. Only the oled technology seems to offer equal or better picture quality against the now obsolete plasma technology. Having settled on the oled technology, the next decision was hd or 4k?.There are a number of tables which relate the ability of the human eye, with perfect vision, to distinguish hd resolution against 4k for given screen sizes and viewing distances. For a 55” screen this distance is about 7 feet, in theory at least, and as our viewing distance is about double that there should be no determinable difference between viewing hd or 4k. Fortunately, i was able to put a 55” 4k oled side by side with a 55” hd oled television, running the same test videos and viewing the same photos. The videos were all originally in 4k but for the hd set i used my video editor to re-encode them. This would be to the disadvantage of the hd set as the file had to pass through an additional stage of processing. However, theory was easily seen in practice, as much to the surprise of the salesman, neither of us could tell the difference at all when we stood more than about 6 feet away.
