5 Reasons Against

Poor 3D Picture Quality

One customer reckoned that it did not have a good 3D picture quality. Cnet.co.uk mentioned in their review of this TV on expert website CNET.co.uk “Connections Smart TV Audio quality Picture quality Conclusion If you can't be bothered with 3D.”.

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other similar spec TVs that were released around the same time as the UE40ES5500, the Samsung UE40ES5500 is not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a TV that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the LG 42LW579[plb_326450_price], the Panasonic TC-L47ET5[plb_403365_price], or the Samsung UE40H6470[plb_2233881_price] which also has a higher rating.

Most TVs of a similar age and spec to the UE40ES5500 do not have a built-in camera. The UE40ES5500 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other televisions which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the UE46ES8000[pl_1355897_price], the UN46ES8000[pl_1484430_price], or the UE40F7000[pl_1494094_price] all from Samsung which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
