The Samsung UN48H5500 48 inch screen 1080p Smart TV is a surprise package that offers the best of two worlds rolled into one. The features are top of the range, the price is not.
The UN48H5500 includes a quad core processor delivering the kind of power which usually comes with quite a big price tag. A quad core processor not only increases boot up speed but it makes loading and performance of apps a lot quicker as well. In this value price range you would not expect to find the quad core. It has so far been reserved for the more expensive series only. Samsung seems to know the meaning of the word value.
It stands to reason that not all features of the top models would be included in the more price friendly units but very little seems to be lacking in the Samsung UN48H5500. The refresh rate is a little low but the picture is sharp and clear enough to keep TV connoisseurs happy. LED edge backlighting provides excellent picture contrast from all angles.
When you opt to buy Smart TV you expect seamless integration between your set and the world of the Internet with all the movies and entertainment it offers. The power of the quad core in the UN48H5500 enables the viewers to switch seamlessly between apps.
Resolution will increasingly become an important feature for TV buyers in future. Some TV broadcasts and video games are 720p, but 1080p content is definitely increasing and seems likely to be the norm in future. The fact that this model is 1080p is a big plus.
The Samsung UN48H5500 TV has the sleek and super thin appearance of the typical modern television set. There is nothing extravagant about it but it looks attractive and is functional.
An interesting feature of UN48H5500 is Dual screen. It enables you to watch a television show and at the same time do fun things on the Internet such as socialize on Facebook – all on the same screen.
