3 Reasons For

Samsung TVs Have Good Reviews

Samsung has good average ratings for its mid-size TVs as well as across its entire television range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports One Audio Format

The 40D5003 has a greater number of audio formats than most mid-size TVs that have been around for a comparable time to it. This TV supports an MP3 audio format, which is the most commonly supported audio format supported by mid-size TVs that have been available for more than two years.

Not Included Optical Disc Drive

This TV has a Not included optical disc drive, which is typical of many mid-size TVs that were released around the same time as it.

8 Reasons Against

Very Slow Refresh Rate

With a refresh rate of only 50 hertz, the Samsung 40D5003 has a fairly slow refresh rate compared to most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been around for more than two years. The slowest refresh rate of TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 40D5003 is 50Hz, the fastest is 1,600Hz, and the average refresh rate is 180Hz.

If you want a TV with a faster refresh rate then you might also want to consider the JVC LT-32C461 (£179.98) (60Hz).

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

The Samsung 40D5003 does not have a WiFi connection, although keep in mind that most of the other TVs of a similar spec and age to the 40D5003 also do not have a WiFi connection.

It is worth also looking at other televisions which also have a WiFi connection including the Panasonic TX-L32E30, the Samsung UE48H6470, or the LG 47LB670.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The 40D5003 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other mid-size TVs that were launched around the same time as the 40D5003 also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared this television to all the other TVs with an OLED technology and we think the Samsung UE46H7000 (£849.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
