One customer wrote in their reviews that it was good at displaying high definition TV. Expert review site Reviewed.com rated the product 71 out of 100 and said two years ago “Now's not a bad time to buy a 4K TV—but it's a terrific time to buy a Full HD (1080p) model like the Samsung UN50J5500 (MSRP $1,299, online for $799” in their review of this TV.

We compared all the other televisions which support smart TV to this TV and we think the UE48J5580[pl_2866372_price], and the UE48J5570[pl_2865720_price] both from Samsung or the LG 32LF592[plb_3017075_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

A Bit Expensive

One person who reviewed the product concluded that it was not good value for money.
