HDTV Reviews: Samsung UN40J5200 40-Inch 1080p Smart LED TV (2015 Model)

If you’re looking for a brand new, affordable, full 1080p HD Smart TV with amazing color, then look no further than the Samsung UN40J5200 – it has all your bases covered. With built-in WiFi and Smart TV technology, you’ll be connected to the net and enjoying your favorite streaming media in no time! Despite its budget price, this 40-inch TV comes loaded with features.

Smart TV Eco Sensor Technology

Backlit by LEDs, the UN40J5200 is already an eco- (and power bill) friendly device. However, in order to ensure the greatest power savings, it also comes equipped with eco sensor technology, automatically detecting the brightness of the room and adjusting the screen brightness accordingly. Coming from an older TV, it’s hard to believe just how much less power this was drawing – a huge improvement.

Incredible Visual Fidelity

With Samsung’s Motion Rate 60, the screen doesn’t lag behind the action – the fast response rate and processing speed mean that it can keep up with the most frantic action. Combine that with the Wide Color Enhancer feature, offering enriched colors, and you won’t believe the vividness and clarity of every image. I moved from an older plasma TV to this, and I was stunned, to say the least. The blacks are black, and it doesn’t look washed out even in brighter rooms. A huge improvement!

Smart TV Integration

While the interface and menus to surf the web can be a bit clunky (remotes just aren’t made for typing), the UN40J5200 does a pretty good job of it overall. The wireless connection had no problems connecting to the network, and once it’s on you can do heaps of cool things (streaming files from your PC, screen mirroring mobile devices, etc.). It also, like many TVs, has a USB input, and didn’t have any problems handling anything I tried to run through it. The overall Smart TV integration certainly feels more natural than in older TVs!
