Samsung Televisions Have Good Reviews

On average Samsung mid-size TVs have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all TVs built by Samsung.

Good Picture Quality

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it had good colour saturation. Expert website Lcdtvbuyingguide.com said in their review of this TV “The edge lighting also helps to balance out the downsides of the matte screen by providing rich colors and strong contrast” and scored the product 4 stars.

Good High Def TV

One customer reckoned that the Samsung UN50J5500 was good at displaying high definition TV. Expert website Reviewed.com wrote in their review of the Samsung UN50J5500 “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” .

Has a Wi-Fi

has a wi-Fi

The UN50J5500 has a wi-Fi, unlike most of the other similar spec TVs that are a comparable age to the UN50J5500 which do not have a wi-Fi.

We compared all the other televisions with a wi-Fi to this TV and we think the UE32J6350, and the UE32J6250 both from Samsung or the Philips 32PFK5500/12 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative televisions which support smart TV currently available that you might also want to look at including the UE48J5580, or the UN48J5200 both from Samsung or the Philips 40PFK5500/12 which has better reviews.

A Bit Expensive

One Samsung UN50J5500 reviewer who reviewed it considered that it was not good value for money.

Not 3D

The UN50J5500 is not 3D. Most of the other mid-size TVs that are a similar age to the UN50J5500 are also not 3D.

The Samsung UN50J5500 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other TVs of a comparable type and age to the UN50J5500 also do not have a built-in camera.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Like most of the other similar spec televisions that have been on the market for a comparable time to the UN50J5500, the Samsung UN50J5500 does not feature OLED technology.

Average High Frequency Rate

With a high frequency rate of 60 hertz, the Samsung UN50J5500 has a relatively typical high frequency rate compared to most of the other televisions that have been around for a similar time to the UN50J5500.

We compared this TV to all the other 60Hz refresh rate TVs and we think because of it's better review score, the 48PFT4100/60, the 40PFK4100/12, and the 40PFT4100/12 all from Philips is also worth considering.

If this TV high frequency rate is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Hisense LTDN40K370 (£267.99) (100Hz), the LG 49LF631 (100Hz), or the Sony KDL-43W808 (100Hz) which also has a higher rating.
