Hi,

 

I am after some advice please, does anyone know the difference/benefits of the F5300 vs the F5500?

 

 

I have checked the product comparison feature on the Samsung website, however some sections of the F5500 are missing. 

http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/tv-audio-video/television/productcompare?prda=UE40F5300AKXXU&prdb=UE40F5500AKXXU

 

From the information I took from Samsungs website, the only difference that I can see is that the F5500 has built in Wi-Fi and a swivel base - unless I am missing something.

 

I can get a good deal on a UE40F5300 at £380.  My question is, should I buy the F5300, or opt for the F5500 which is £480?

 

Built in Wi-Fi is not required as TV will be connected via ethernet cable, TV will also be wall mounted.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

TV will be used for watching movies, regular tv and some occasional gaming.

Probably both use the same panel and mainboard etc looks like one has WI-FI and one does not . It's not uncommon in a mfr product line to find 2 otherwise
identically functional sets with WI-FI being the only significant difference

I think the 5500 has a dual core cpu.
