About - Samsung UN32EH5000

The Samsung UN32EH5000 is a 32-inch LCD HDTV with a native resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p). It has full-array LED backlighting, which uses less energy than conventional fluorescent backlighting. Many new TVs now have a higher frame rate that's designed to reduce the motion blur that's a shortcoming of LCD technology.

There are 3 HD-capable inputs: 2 HDMI and 1 component-video, which can also be used as composite-video. It also has a USB port, which may allow you to plug in a thumb drive or memory card reader so you can play the stored photos, videos, and music on the TV.

The Samsung UN32EH5000 measures 19.6 inches high by 29 inches wide by 7.5 inches deep, including its base. The panel itself is 3.6 inches thick including any protrusions, and the screen has a matte finish. The bezel framing the screen is gloss black.

The warranty on this TV covers parts/labor for 12/12 months, respectively. Related models in this series include the UN37EH5000; UN40EH5000; UN46EH5000; UN50EH5000.

Comment:
This model was given as a gift to replace an older TV in the kitchen area. The kitchen area has no cable or satellite reception, so the set was connected to an indoor antenna. The set pulled in over 70 channels which I would say is excellent. Picture quality with the antenna is just as good or better than cable or satellite reception. <br /><br />Blu-Ray & DVD viewing is beautiful. <br /><br />The model has what's called Motion Lighting. This setting brightens or dims the screen based on the lighting in the room. I found this to be distracting & turned this setting off. <br /><br />There's also what is called LED Motion Plus. This is to help cut down on the motion blur, but when turned on, it dims the screen & cuts away the overall brightness. When you try to compensate with the backlight & brightness, it doesn't work. However, when it is on it did appear to work on keeping the picture sharp. I turned it off.<br /><br />The jacks in the rear are limited. The component & composite share the same jacks. So it's either one or the other. Many brands regardless of screen size are going in this direction of either or & not both. <br /><br />I noticed that Consumer Reports are now providing the settings they use to score the TVs. I tried this on the set & I have good results.

Comment:
Bought this Samsung to take place of a 37 inch TV that can't be fixed. Picked this model because it has LED's and 1080 resolution along with a reputation for excellent picture quality and reliability. I have a VCR that has no where to connect on the back of this or many new sets. The manufacturers now use a combination of component and A/V sharing the same set of RCA female ports. You have to remove all the component cables to plug the yellow video cable in, a splitter won't work. Bad place to cut corners in my opinion. A fine TV even with this single con.
How long have you owned it:

Comment:
Purchased as a replacement for a 22 Vizio LCD used in a bedroom. Both the sound and picture quality were better than I expected for an entry-level model - by no means the best, but perfectly acceptable for a secondary television. Provided it proves reliable, I couldn't be happier. The picture quality impresses most - on par with a higher-end 55 top-tier brand I purchased a few months ago for 5 times the price of this television.
