3.0 out of 5 stars Smart TVs - what you need to know, 30 Nov. 2013
By 
This review is from: Samsung UE32F4500 32-inch Widescreen HD Ready LED Television (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
This TV, like most Samsung TVs, does it job well but make sure that you are buying a model with a BBC iPlayer that works properly. As far as `Catch-up' TV is concerned, a number of models in the Samsung `Smart TV' range are not fit for purpose and Samsung are fully aware that this is so. In such cases, (the UE40F6400 Series, etc., etc.), the pre-installed BBC iPlayer firmware is faulty. The result is a serious and progressive lipsynch problem that makes all the BBC channels unwatchable. Nobody should buy any TV, (or set-top boxes, recorders etc.), unless the iPlayer is BBC certified. You can check out Samsung products at

Hi,

I've been meaning to post this for a couple of weeks. I've had this TV since October 2013 and loved everything about it apart from the iPlayer lip sync problem described by Norman. Luckily Samsung released an update to the firmware on 6th March 2014 - http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/model/UE32F4500AKXXU-downloads?isManualDownload=true which has fixed it for me.

I hope this will help others. It really is a great TV.

Thanks for the update, Norman's piece had me really worried, as I had planned to get one of these, which I will now most likely do.
