TV Review: Samsung UE40ES5500

A 40" TV with no clouding and a low price tag

After reviewing the 8000 series, (UE55ES8000), 7000 series (UE40ES7000) and 6000 series (UE40ES6300 and UE40ES6710), we've finally gotten our hands on the 5500, more precisely the UE40ES5500.

Don't let your eyes fool you: while the design of this TV looks a lot like the ES6300, it's actually a different, scaled-down model that does not feature 3D compatibility, integrated Wi-Fi or motion interpolation. Like most Samsung TVs, the ES5500 has Edge LED backlighting and access to the brand's online services via the Smart Hub.

Before we get started we'd first like to thank the online retailer Redcoon for loaning us this TV. This German website that has been gaining ground in Europe with its competitive prices and wide array of products, and we couldn't have written this review without their help.
