3.0 out of 5 stars Falled short of expectations., 25 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Series 5 F5500 46-inch Widescreen Smart Full HD LED Television (Electronics)
I recently bought a Samsung F5000 46" on Amazon. I was very happy with the TV except for the lack of connections. Therefore, I decided to 'upgrade' to the 46" F5500 for the extra hdmi port and additional smart functions. Being a 5 series I expected the picture quality to be the same if not better than the F5000's. However, I was amazed to find that HD channels were in fact less sharp and the colours over saturated. Skin tones just didn't look right and grass occasionally had a slightly repulsive neon-like hue! The F5000 on the other hand has a far more natural looking colour palette. I am also sure that the back light is brighter on the F5000.

I therefore have decided to keep the F5000 and regret not choosing the F5300 46" as I have a sneaking suspicion that it is the smart equivalent to the F5000. It also has 3 hdmi ports. It is only lacking the swivel stand of the f5500(which is useful but aesthetically not to everyone's taste)and the built in wifi.

The F5500 in other sizes has been getting very good reviews from owners but based on my own experience of it I wouldn't recommend it.

Got the 40 inch version for the bedroom and I totally agree with this review. I got it on the cheap so I am not returning it but I would not like to use this as a main TV . All said and done, the SMART features are awesome.
