Quite Fast Motion Interpolation Frequency
At 400 hertz, the UE40J5580 has a quite fast motion interpolation frequency compared to most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for around the same time as the UE40J5580. The motion interpolation frequencies of comparable spec TVs that are a similar age to the UE40J5580 range from 50Hz to 1,000Hz.

The number of audio formats supported by the UE40J5580 is more than most TVs of this age and spec. The most commonly supported audio format is MP3, but this audio format is not supported by this television. The audio formats AIFF, APE, FLAC, MIDI, OGG, WAV and WMA are also supported by this TV.
4 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
The UE40J5580 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other mid-size TVs that were released around the same time as the UE40J5580 are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The UE40J5580 does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other TVs of a comparable age and spec to the UE40J5580 also do not have a built-in camera.
Does Not Feature OLED Technology
The UE40J5580 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other mid-size TVs that came out more than a year ago also do not feature OLED technology.
We compared all the other TVs which also feature OLED technology to this television and we think the Samsung UN50J6200 is also worth considering.
Only Mega Contrast Dynamic Contrast Ratio
This TV has a Mega Contrast dynamic contrast ratio, which is typical of many TVs of a comparable spec and age to it.
