Samsung TVs Have Good Reviews

On average Samsung mid-size TVs have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all TVs produced by Samsung.

Good Picture Quality

One customer who reviewed the Samsung UN48J5500 mentioned that it had good colour saturation. In December last year Lcdtvbuyingguide.com said in their review of the Samsung UN48J5500 “The edge lighting also helps to balance out the downsides of the matte screen by providing rich colors and strong contrast”.

Good High Def TV

One customer who bought it concluded that it was good at displaying high definition TV. Expert review site Reviewed.com said “Now's not a bad time to buy a 4K TV—but it's a terrific time to buy a Full HD (1080p) model like the Samsung UN50J5500 (MSRP $1,299, online for $799” in their review and rated this TV 4 stars.

Supports Smart TV Features

The UN48J5500 supports smart TV features, unlike most of the other mid-size TVs that were launched in the last 12 months which do not support smart TV features.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs which support smart TV features and we think the 40PFT5300/56[pl_2800816_price], and the 32PFS5501[pl_3351335_price] both from Philips or the Samsung UE40J5202[plb_3440925_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
