Should i get a 32" F5500 or a 40" F5500 for a dorm room? I'm not sure if the slimness of the TV makes it seem bigger or larger than the actually screen size

That all depends how far away you're going to be viewing it from. If you are going to have it on your desk and your going to be sitting at your desk looking at it with your eyes being a foot and a half away from the screen, a 40" screen will probably make you want to throw the TV out the window. On the other hand, if you have a particularly large dorm room and you are going to be hanging the TV on the wall and viewing it from your bed that's up against the opposite wall, the 32" may be too small. When I went to college, dorm rooms were really tiny so even one wall to the other would not require more than 32" but I've heard some people talk about dorm rooms that are bigger than my entire apt is now. So there is no one answer to that question for all people in dorms everywhere. You need to think about how you will be using it and how far away your face will be from the screen.

Quick question please, what are differences between 5000 and 5500, only smart tv functions? Same panel, same picture quality?

I can see that design is little different and I don't need smart functionality, so if 42f5000 is the same as 42f5500 in terms of picture quality, I will get that one. Thanx and sorry for not reading everything.

Yes same picture quality on both, F5000 misses the smart tv functions and 1 less HDMI port and 1 less USB port.

But this is the last thing to worry about when buying a new TV IMHO, I'd be more concerned about motion blur any day.

kkl10, I'm thinking about a 32F5000 for the bedroom to watch cable TV, mainly late night talk shows, CNN and other news channels, and late football games and other sports. Most reviews and customer reviews are favorable, but I'm worried about motion blur. You mention that you're concerned about motion blur, so how is your set in that regard? Thanks for any feedback.

I ment to say anyone buying a new TV shouldn't be too worried about judder caused by unmatched frame rates.
It's an issue that happens with pretty much all displays with fixed refresh rate and it's minimal.
I just happen to mention motion blur but could had mentioned clouding, ghosting, viewing angles, DSE, panel type, or whatever, you know things that usually have more influence on the pictures of an LCD display.

About my set I have no real issue with motion blur, there's as much as with any other 60/50Hz LCD display.
I usually don't notice it too much even with videogames. It doesn't really bother me, but maybe I just got used to it.
How much it is going to bother you, only you know.
If you have the chance to go to a store and see the TV for yourself, I suggest you do it.

For your use the F5000 is a fine choice.
But if you really hate motion blur and are only used to Plasma or CRT technology, then you might want to spend a bit more and buy a 100/120Hz LCD TV instead.

Thanks for the feedback. My main set is a five year old 52" 120Hz Samsung and I'm very happy with AMP set to Low for cable TV viewing. However, when I watch blu rays at 24p, I turn AMP off. Then, sometimes, I forget to turn it back on for cable TV viewing, and don't notice it for a day or so until something catches my eye. So maybe I'm not too susceptible to motion blur.

I do intend to get out to a store and compare sets this weekend. I re-read the CNET review and he seems to like the Vizio 120Hz set, too.

I think it's the first time someone reports a "TP01" panel.
I'd say it's most likelly a Samsung panel but only way to be sure is to see in service menu.
Would be relevant to know where exactly you are located.

You can know how to enter service menu by reading the first half of the previous page of this thread.
I suggest you take the warnings seriously.
Also take a look at this thread to know what to look for.
Note that since you are located in Israel, it's possible that none of the known methods to enter service menu works in your case.

thank you for your reply.

the model is: UA46F5000AM

the model code is: UA46F5000AMXSQ

version no.: TP01

 

by the way, the viewing angle seems to be not that great, comparing to my 3 old panasonic lcd... thats why i suspect its not a samsung panel.

Comparing viewing angles with some random 3 year old LCD model cannot be conclusive in any way about the manufacturer of the panel of your 46F5000.
I still say that your new Samsung model is most likelly using a Samsung panel.

In HDTVs Panasonic traditionaly uses IPS technology in their LCD panels.
Samsung traditionally uses VA technology.
IPS technology has an inherent advantage in viewing angles compared to VA technology.
VA technology has an advantage in black level and contrast ratio.
So your Panasonic model is always going to have better viewing angles than any current Samsung LCD HDTV, regardless of who manufactured the panel of the TV.
If you want to have similar viewing angle performance of your Panasonic model you should opt for a TV that uses IPS panel technology, so either Panasonic or LG.
This will give worse contrast ratio than a Samsung model though.

In the end it comes down to whether you like it or not.
But a bit more research before buying would be wise.

Hi,

 

I'm new to this forum, so pardon me if I'm posting to the wrong thread. I've read some good reviews about the Samsung UN32F5000, and there is a chance that I could buy it in Germany but don't know the exact equivalent for the German market? Is it the Samsung UE32F5070 (considering Amazon.de)?

 

thanks,

The exact equivalent is the UE32F5000, from what I can see in Amazon the F5070 is the same but with an additional DVB-S2 satelite tuner.
Maybe the satelite tuner is necessary to get channels in your country...

Ah well, great then. Yes, in fact I am looking for a TV with an integrated satellite tuner.

It's a Sharp panel. Please make your pictures much smaller or attach them as thumbnails instead.

Yes you'll have higher chances of getting a Samsung panel in the 46" size.
At least this seems to be the case with most.

It's actually a disgrace from Samsung that I need to worry about their panel lottery because they agreed to let other companies make panels for them. What's the point of buying something from Samsung while it is produced by Sharp, if I want a Sharp tv I just could have bought it. Does panels actually affect the input lag or not.

Input lag is not affected by panel version here.
Replacing for a same model TV with a different panel will yield exactly the same input lag as this is determined by the connections and logic processing behind them, not panel hardware.

Hi i have a UN40F5000 being delivered tomorrow

 

I have a tv stand now, 2 shelves and a center beam used for mounting tvs. typical swivel style. it doesnt have the traditional flat screen mount setup.

 

i believe its your basic universal MESA mounting plate with 8 in x 8 in and everything in between.

 

theres an old 37 inch Olevia mounted on it now and I was wondering if this would be compatible with the UN40F5000 i have coming tomorrow?

 

i heard this is the place to go to get expert quality advice and im only entry level tech savy lol.

I suppose you mean VESA?
My UE32F5000 is 8" X 8" VESA wall mount compatible.
Not sure if the UN40F5000 is the same but from pics I've snen it seems to be....
Better to get input from someone who owns same size as you...

lol, yeah VESA, its been a long week sorry about that.

 

I'm just hoping this basic VESA mount plate will be enough cause the tv stand is perfectly fine for my needs .

 

i would hate to have to go out and buy a new tv/media stand with a compatible mount when i have a perfectly good one already

 

i appreciate the response.

Your model and size supports VESA 200x200. You can download your manual here: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/UN40F5000AFXZA

200mm is approximately 7.8 inches so by your description of 8" or less it should fit.

i appreciate everyones help so far 

 

one last question, i was thinking about getting this stand and swivel mount .

 

http://www.amazon.com/Omnimount-Modena-37-Inch-47-Inch-Panels/dp/B002B8NLS2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1384476948&sr=8-1&keywords=Omnimount+Modena47fp

 

is this compatible with the UN40F5000? 

 

it says it fits up to 47 inch and has a snap and lock feature in which you slide the tv on i guess?

 

if someone could explain that feature? would that require no screws or hardware?

well it doesnt have the exact metric equivalent of 200mm x 200mm 

 

i imagine it could fit 8 in x 8 in even if its not fully flushed?
