Great general TV and PC monitor!! + How to fix blurriness as a PC monitor, August 12, 2013

Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
First of all, this little TV is outstanding for its size and price!

– Plays at a full 1080p which looks quite clean and crisp for whatever you’re using it for (not the best, of course, but nonetheless great IMO).
– The frame itself looks sleek and elegant; no bulk whatsoever.
– It’s very lightweight, around 6 pounds or so, perfect for moving it from place to place (as a college student, this is great for moving it to and from my house and dorm).
– I don’t use the speakers that often, but it sounds pretty decent from my few experiences with it (although I am only about 5 feet away from it at most).

– The TV is aesthetically pleasing, in terms of the frame and picture, it feels somewhat cheap. The stand in particular is, I believe, pure plastic and seems very unstable sometimes. Not a deal breaker, but something I feel I need to point out.
– The preset settings are somewhat dark and displeasing, IMO, so you might want to tweak the settings a bit.

Now from a PC gaming standpoint, this is absolutely amazing!! As I said before, it looks great when playing any game, i.e Crysis 3, BF3, Fallout, etc. There is no lag or delayed reaction time on screen at all!

One thing I would like to mention is setting-up this TV as a PC monitor. IF you are doing this PLEASE READ THIS TO PREVENT ANY FUTURE FRUSTRATION. You will notice that the screen will look VERY blurry when you first connect your PC to the TV ( In my experience, this was through HDMI). There is a reason for this, which I won’t go through in detail, but to fix this all you need to do is this:
1.) Hit menu
2.) Go to Source List
3.) Hit right twice
4.) Find the video connection you are using (Mine was HDMI, again)
5.) Hit Tools
6.) Hit name, then name it “PC”
7.) Boom, done. Now you have an amazing PC Monitor!

Anyways, overall this TV is versatile and looks stunning for its class. Definite recommendation to anyone looking for a small TV of monitor!

Great picture & bright screen. Has a transformer, April 14, 2013

Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is for the 22″ version.
This tv is wall mounted in our kitchen, which is very well lit & surrounded by windows, yet the screen is bright and colorful. I have both a PS3 and AppleTv hooked up to it, and the picture rivals that of our much more expensive 3yr old 40″ Sony Bravia (which was $1100), the colors don’t have quite the depth of the Sony, but the clarity of this TV is better and moving images have more separation from the background image.
Tv weighs very little and could easily be held by most any mount. Remote is nice and has a backlight.
One complaint I do have is there is no mention of this unit being a lo-volt (12v DC) model. Meaning it requires an included transformer to step down the 120v AC power. This isn’t a real problem unless you are wall mounting the tv and suddenly realize that you now have to contend with concealing a 1.5″x1″x3.5″ transformer. I almost returned the tv based on this alone, however, the cord on the transformer was long enough that I could conceal the transformer in the cabinet below with my other A/V equipment and pull the wire up throughout the wall with the HDMI cable. This actually worked out to my advantage because the lo-volt wire is much smaller than a typical AC cord so it was easier to hide the wire from the back of the TV to the wall.
On a side note, not sure if this TV (being lo-volt) would be a great choice for an RV/Motorhome.

Best Samsung 60hz TV to date, March 29, 2013
Dangs “Dan” (Baltimore, MD) –

Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Samsung UN32F5000 32-Inch 1080p 60Hz Slim LED HDTV (Electronics)

I was ready to purchase the `12 model year Samsung 5000 series TV when I found out that this updated model was available. My local big box stores did not have the F5000 series in stock yet so I had to take a chance on this set and buy it sight unseen.

I would rate myself as a fairly knowledgeable user, and a very picky one at that. I read AV forums online and I constantly tinker with my TVs to get the best picture possible out of them. I am very glad that I waited to get this new ’13 model, as the quality and features are substantially improved.

For starters, comparing this model side by side with the older Samsung EH5000 models, the first thing you will notice is how much thinner the F5000 is. At 1.9″ thick, it’s almost as thin as any LCD TV gets; and its roughly half as thick as the prior model. The 2″ difference really matters, especially for those of you who will be wall mounting the TV. With a low profile mount, the TV is about as flat as one could expect to get.

Appearance-wise, the F5000 is a stunning looking TV. The bezel is ultra-thin and glossy black. The bezel bows down slightly in the bottom center of the TV to show off the Samsung logo. Compared to another same size Samsung LCD in our house that is just three years older, the F5000 looks futuristic and sleek. I love the design direction that they have taken in 2013.

But all this means nothing if the TV isn’t just as fantastic from a performance standpoint. Luckily, the function is well matched to the form.

The first thing I checked after getting my TV mounted to the wall was the evenness of the backlight. Our previous non-LED Samsung had a slight “flashlight” effect to it. When looking at an all black screen, you could see noticeable bright spots, especially near the corners. My F5000 set, however, appears to be perfectly even from edge to edge. Very impressive considering this is one of their lower end lines.

The picture on the TV is excellent. I’m not sure how they achieved it, but considering its only a 60hz panel, the motion is the smoothest I have seen to date. No perceptible blur during fast action on the few shows I’ve watched so far. Like all other LED TVs, the factory settings have the backlight set too bright and the red level pushed too hard, which makes skin tones appear slightly too unnatural. This is a quick and easy fix in the video settings menu. I’ve only had the set a short while and am still making adjustments to my settings; I will update this review shortly with a full list of the optimum picture adjustments. But even without a single adjustment, I am just very shocked at how stunning the picture is. Also, I was expecting to immediately disable the “eco” features of the TV, but I surprisingly fell in love with one of them. It has a built in sensor that measures the brightness of your room, and adjusts the backlight accordingly. I had my mind set on disabling this right away, but after trying it out, it’s actually very well implemented. It is especially useful for anyone using this TV in a bedroom… If you want to lay in bed and watch some TV in the dark, it will dim the picture slightly and keep it from being uncomfortably bright. If I wasn’t using it in a bedroom, I’d probably want to disable it. Thankfully, its very easy to access the eco settings to adjust or disable it for those of you who don’t care to try it.

Right now, I can only think of two Cons to go against the many pros, and they are both minor. The first con is that the backlit remote is very very dimly lit. Even with the backlight activated, it takes a second or two to figure out what each button is. Thankfully though, this becomes a non-factor once you’ve used it a few times and have the locations memorized. The second con is that the included stand, at least on my 32″, is very cheaply made. Samsung clearly has done some serious cost saving on the quality of the stand. Although they managed to make it look OK, the feel of it is terrible. It’s a very thin gauge of reinforced plastic. This isn’t an issue for anyone who is wall mounting like myself, but I felt it was worth mentioning. It feels significantly less sturdy than all previous Samsung TV stands that I have owned.

One last thing I’ll note for those looking to wall mount. Some descriptions list the 32″ version as being VESA 400×400. This is INCORRECT. I can confirm for sure that it is VESA 200×200 for the UN32F5000. The Samsung manual will confirm this, but as of the time of me writing this review, Amazon lists it at 400×400 which is very wrong.

Overall, the F5000 series feels like a big step in the right direction for Samsung, and I am thrilled with the TV so far. I will update this review in the near future with my recommended picture settings once I get them dialed in exactly as I want them.

EDIT on 6/17/2013:

As promised here are the best picture settings I have tried for this…
