Samsung-UN40D5003

A powerful 40 inch LED full HD TV

Because of the growing interest in their TVs, the Korean company Samsung has decided to launch a new one in stores worldwide. They named this model Samsung UN40D5003. According to the team, their product “lets you see for yourself how Clear Motion Rate 120 delivers fast moving images with outstanding clarity on a 22-inch HDTV.” Since we are aware of the fact that the brand is a very popular and loved one by many people, we decided to test their latest TV and see if it’s worth the buy. Find out our conclusion from the review below.

Clear Motion Rate technology

Samsung devices are also known for their good-looks and the new UN40D5003 TV is no exception to the rule, since the product looks elegant and stylish with its ultra-slim high-glossy black bezel and stand. And, measuring 2″ x 37.2″ x 22.1″ and weighing 11kg (with stand), the TV is very easy to move around from room to room.
On the front of the Samsung UN40D5003 sits a 40″ class LED backlighting display with full HD 1080p resolution, HyperReal Engine120CMR (Clear Motion Rate) and high contrast dynamic contrast ratio. The fact that the screen is a LED backlighting one means that we can watch content on its whole surface; we encountered no annoying frame standard in other TVs that we tested in the past.

Very good image quality

Because this device has twice the resolution found in HDTVs, users will experience great full HD images. Samsung’s CMR does the following: it measures the true clarity performance of a device when it plays fast-paced movies and the like; it does this by using the backlight, chipset and TV panel. The 120CMR on the TV we are reviewing today did a very good job: we noticed no blurs when viewing different content. The innovative HyperReal Engine mentioned above offered images that popped from the screen and excellent colors by optimizing image and overall performance.
The stand of the Samsung UN40D5003 looked solid and it actually made the TV keep its position even when we kicked the desk it sat on a few times. In other words, this product is a very good choice if you have small children running around all day.

Wide Color Enhancer Plus

What we liked the most about the device was its Wide Color Enhancer Plus feature, as it basically automatically corrected and optimized the level of red, green, blue, yellow, magenta and cyan of an image; it also improved image quality and showed hidden details and colors.
Now let’s talk about connectivity. Samsung’s newly launched UN40D5003 ships with 1 USB 2.0 port, 2 HDMI 4.1 and 1 component video; on the downside there’s no component audio input. The USB port gave us the possibility, during our test, to easily connect a digital camera and many more to the TV. After everything was ready, we just used a user-friendly interface with the help of which we opened pictures, listened to music and the like via the remote control.

SRS TruSurround

As usual, the team at Samsung has added a pair of 5 Watts stereo speakers and the SRS TruSurround along with Dolby Digital Plus / Dolby Pulse technologies to ensure that users experience the best in audio. The overall sound performance was pretty good; it could have been more impressive.
The TV is an eco-friendly and pocket-friendly one, because it exceeds Energy Star Standards by up to 50%; in standby it consumed 1 Watt.

Review conclusion

And so we’ve reached the end of our review. The new Samsung UN40D5003 proved to be a good device that offered overall nice performance, features and price.
