Samsung M5500 49-Inch SMART Full HD TV – Works great for me.


Excellent buy, absolutely like it. Wonderful fhd picture quality with bright, vibrant, accurate projections. Very fast response time too, lots of smart tv functionality.

A very good smart tv set that is very easy to set up and it provides an excellent platform for streaming and catch up tv. The picture quality is good and also the sound.

Fantastic picture very pleased.

Simple set up; good picture; fast response; voice control on small remote in addition to normal full remote.

Wonderful interactive technology. Easy set up and a joy to watch.

The small remote works perfectly even with my sony blueray home theater system. Just one remote for the everyday use.

  • As a consequence I bought a larger TV than I intended and am very glad I did
  • good picture; fast response
  • A Very Good Smart TV

Picture and sound perfect and one remote.

Great tv , all the freeview catch up channels plus google search & youtube etcit’s just a pity they changed the bezel to grey plastic and didn’t leave it a brushed aluminium finish to match the stand like on the k model ☹️.

Excellent, very pleased with it.

Good picture but hand controls contacts keep sticking.

This smart tv is just what my bedroom has been waiting for now i am all complete, just a nice size and everything i was looking for.

Does everything you would expect and picture quality is very clear.

Was delivered on time and has some excellent features typical of samsung. A bit lightweight though when compared with some of the older samsung tv models.

Very happy with picture & sound.

Easy internet connectivity, and all the apps i use are pre-installed. Picture is fantastic & the sound is very good. My only small grumble: i was wall mounting this tv & it requires 4 x m4 machine screws 43mm to 45mm long. I couldn’t obtain these locally & had to wait a couple of days for them to be delivered. As the associated cost of these screws is mere pennies & a significant proportion of people may well want to wall mount the tv, it begs the question why are they not included in the box?.

I bought this after having purchased a samsung smart tv a couple of years ago. This one has all the features i wanted and i have connected an icybox via usb to allow recording of freeview programmes. As i had hoped, series record via the freeview guide is available. No need to overwork the talktalk box any longer. The presence of two remotes seems a bit clunky, but i suppose there is some merit to this complication. On the minus side, the tv seems to want to send sound out through an hdmi port, rather than the tv speaker. I have switched it back a couple of times now. The talktalk box is not recognised by the m5500 and is installed as an hdmi audio output device. Not good and there seems no way to override this anomaly. I will have to try using another hdmi port.

I have had this tv for about a month and before buying it i read all the very helpful advice on the internet about buying the right size tv and getting the distance, height and position right for optimum viewing. As a consequence i bought a larger tv than i intended and am very glad i did. The picture pleases me when watching hd tv transmissions, particularly sport, but not when watching non hd transmissions. I have a modestly priced but well regarded lg blue ray dvd player and this and the tv produce a very pleasing picture but disappointing sound. I have come to the conclusion that while great progress has been made with picture quality, sound is lagging behind. I’m going to see if i can add some small but good quality speakers that will improve things. The remote controller is very good quality, very elegant in appearance and simple to use even for a veteran like me. The tv was easy to set up but the instructions for fitting the very simple stand it comes with are pretty obscure for such a simple task. This tv might be worth five stars but i have difficulty calibrating my expectations.

I’ve had this tv a while now and cannot speak highly enough of it. The quality is excellent, picture and sound are both way in excess of what i need from this as a set for the bedroom. The setup is ridiculously easy, the most complex part being connecting to the internet and even then it coes down to entering your password, hardly cracking the enigma code. I’ve also connected up a samsung blu-ray player, that was beyond seamless, total integration out of the box. If it was located in a bigger room i might consider getting a soundbar, but to be honest the in-built speakers are more than enough for the room i use it. The picture quality is jaw dropping. I am delighted with this tv, if funds allow i might buy it’s bigger sibling to replace my aging main tv.

Very nice smart tv looks very nice and has some very nice features excellent for the internet i like the idea of the two remotes samsung are quality eletrical appliances arrived on time and in excellent condition brand new thanks amazon.

The picture quality is the bast that i have seen. The smart element works beautifully. My next big tv will be the 55 inch version of this 32.

Bought this tv recently and omg its amazing. I hooked it up to a blu ray player and i found the picture to be if anything too good, thus making movies look life like. I then later found the remote control has a movie mode to make the picture quality slightly more distorted and grainy. I thoroughly recommend to use with a soundbar for that complete movie experience.

This was intended as an upgrade to a 32 inch 5 year old samsung. The fact it’s another samsung is purely coincidental as i investigated numerous variations. I needed the biggest tv i could get to fit into a lounge slot. In that respect it achieved those simple requirements. I’m not the type that needs to quantify the sound and pictures technical qualities. The old tv was apparently too small to benefit from its hd standard, which i only learnt too late. So i have spent some time on the new one flicking between bbc and bbc hd. Frankly i can see no noticeable significant difference. The sound is a big improvement as well.

Great tv great picture great price.

Picture quality excellent, especially with bluray and hd channels. Sound ok, fairly standard for tv nowadays, nothing amazing. Constantly drops out, needs reconnecting, sometimes need to reset the router so it can find it again despite the fact all other devices in the house never drop out, including streaming tv and internet games on ps4. Frequently freezes when streaming then show message stating insufficient bandwidth (on superfast broadband with download speeds up to 70kbps at same time that tv states no connection to internet) seller not interested (electrical experience). Sometimes doesn’t even find terrestrial channels. Would like to return but seller says just contact samsung. My contract was with the seller, not samsung. May need to buy chromecast and fire stick to make this tv work.

Good picture and decent sound for a flatscreen. At last this samsung is compatible with now tv.

    Garbage, not a smart tv as it drops wifi all the time for no reason at all. Cannot get hold of amazon or samsung. Awful and miss-sold based on description and other reviews.
