Hi Guys! Just wanted to apologise for the lack of recent updates over the past few weeks. I have just moved into a new apartment so I have been extremely busy. Although this presents a fantastic opportunity to talk about the new tech I will be furnishing my apartment with. I thought I would kick start this update off with my new Television, the Samsung Series 5 LED 40 inch TV (UE40EH5000);
I picked this tv up for £354 from Pixmaina online. I believe this is a French based company and I also noticed that on the parcel tracking it originated in France. Nevertheless the TV arrived within 3 days even though I had paid the cheaper shipping price of £21. The only disadvantage of ordering from an overseas company is that I had to fit an adapter on the plus, however this was all included.
The TV has an extremely small surround and a really nice finish. It looks almost as good as some as some of the more expensive Samsung TV’s. Where it lacks is the actual thickness of TV. It is perhaps is a little too fat to go on a wall and not as slimline as some of the other competition in this price range.
The TV came nearly all assembled except for 8 screws that were needed to be placed in the stand. This took much longer than expected as the screws are extremely difficult to get in unless you have a large screw driver you can really get some leverage with.
The TV has a full HD 1080p LED screen. This produces a very high-quality picture although if I am being very critical it is maybe slightly dim in the corners, although you would never noticeable unless you were actually looking for it.
Overall I feel this TV is a great value 40 inch TV – If not one of the best for the price in the current market. It obviously lacks the Smart TV options that higher priced TV’s offer but if you have a PS3 or XBOX like I do it seems a little redundant when you have most of this functionality through your console anyway.
