5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value and YES it does have FREEVIEW HD., 19 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung UE32EH5000 32-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LED Television with Freeview HD (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Just got the set today.

Most important, like the other 2 reviews, i can confirm that this NEW 2012 model set is in fact FREEVIEW HD, even though it incorrectly only says freeview on every webiste.

I have a single appliance energy monitor and even putting the tv in Vivid mode, which wacked up the brightness etc, it still only uses 45.2 Watts. (My old LCD Samsung 32" TV used 150 Watts). I should save about £1 per month in electricity, just on this bedroom TV.

This new 2012 Samsung tv uses Full Array LED Backlighting. Very good black levels and no light bleeding on the sides, like on some side lit led tv's.

I would give it 4 stars overall, however with low power use, freeview HD and a stylish Design at a cheap price, i have given it 5 based on value for money.

It doesnt use full array led backlighting, if it did it would cost 4 times more. It uses led edge backlighting which always have light bleeding, clouding on the corners of the screen. Tho its still a good price for decent cheap tv.

While you have of course been true to the twoddle provided in the marketing literature, it would probably be more honest if Samsung were to market the EH series as 'semi-array'. Still, better than just edge-lighting.

Fair comment. It has LEDS directly behind the screen, though a limited number as you might expect on a budget TV. I would expect a full array TV with local dimming to have a lot more leds however i am none the less impressed by the picture quality.
