Just bought and set up the 46 inch EH5000 this weekend. I have to say that for the money it's an incredible TV.
I bought the Sammy to replace my old Sony Bravia from 2008 and wasn't expecting a huge difference, but the difference is really striking!
For a £550 TV of this size the value for money is absolutely amazing. Colour reproduction, contrast, black levels, backlight uniformity, all of it is literally as good as I've ever seen, even compared to top end £1500+ panels.Good Points:
Price - Cheapest TV of this quality I have ever seen
LED Array Lit S-PVA panel -Amazing picture quality, fantastic motion processor, very easy to turn off the small amount of post-processing.
Great for use as a PC monitor - Easy to put into "Full Pixel" non-overscan mode, simply rename the HDMI inputs to "PC" and it turns off overscan!
Simple menu - lots of settings but easy to figure out what they all do. Managed to get it set up perfectly without opening the manual.
Freeview HD / DVB-T receiver built in.
Very low power consumptionBad Points:
Only 2 HDMI inputs - Personally, I only find myself using 1 these days. We use the HTPC for everything including watching TV. The Xbox sits gathering dust in the corner as I build my Minecraft empire on the HTPC. You may have need for more inputs though, and to only have 2 on a TV this size seems a little mean.
The speakers are terrible. They are fine if you don't like hearing bass or putting the volume above "low", but this is a TV clearly intended to be hooked up to a surround amp. Do not buy if you intend to use the built in TV speakers. We have a surround amp so this is a non-issue.
It has an ethernet port, but it doesn't seem to actually do anything. No DVNA support, no internet support, nothing. Not sure what the ethernet port is even for?? I guess they want to save this functionality for the much more expensive "Smart" 5300 series. Personally I don't really care about this as my HTPC handles streaming and internet far better than a TV ever could, but it is slightly infuriating to have the port there and it doesn't do anything??
Included stand does not swivel. I intend to wall-mount so not a problem for me.
