Powered by Mom shares her Samsung Smart Wifi LED HDTV Review

We had the opportunity to review this fabulous Samsung UN32EH5300 – 32 inch 1080p 60Hz Smart Wifi LED HDTV!

 

Samsung Smart Wifi LED HDTV

Our Samsung Smart Wifi LED HDTV arrived within a few days and we were eager to set it up. This is the first smart television we’ve owned so we were curious to see what options it offered and what we could do with it, not to mention what the picture would look like. Hubby set it up the same day we received it as we just couldn’t wait to try it out!

The Samsung Smart Wifi LED HDTV was lighter than even a current LED tv that we owned, so that was a nice bonus as my husband had to install it up above a mantle piece in our upstairs living room. He said it was very easy for him to set up as it had all the necessary outputs and inputs and it was just easy to figure out. It only took him about 30 minutes to get it up and running, I think that’s a record!

Keep in mind with this picture I used the flash on my camera so the screen is not dark like it looks below. You’ll be able to see how bright it is in the next picture of our Samsung Smart Wifi LED HDTV

Doesn’t it look good above our mantle piece? We have it on a mount too so that we can position the tv anyway we want, we can even turn it towards our dining room if we want to see the screen while at the table. That’s not something I encourage of course but it’s nice to have options :). The picture is so clear and crisp, it’s quite impressive I have to admit even I was impressed, HD really does make a difference but the Samsung television itself has such a great picture, the colors are vibrant but true, the sound is great and we discovered some of the awesome features!

If I wanted to I could even check my Facebook page from the television, that is handy for a social media manager like myself 🙂

One of the things we didn’t know it would do until it was set up was that we could control our speakers (amp) volume right from the television remote, that is so handy! We also no longer need to go through our PlayStation or any other external device to use Netflix, that’s a total bonus. Since it’s our first Smart TV as I mentioned we’re not used to all these features as we have to use an external device on our other television to go to Netflix etc..

Features of the TV

32″ Class (31.5″ Diagonal) LED HDTV with 1080p Resolution

FEATURES

  • Smart TV
  • Smart Content with Signature Services
  • Web Browser & Search All
  • Smart Hub
  • WiFi built-in
  • AllShare Play
  • ConnectShare Movie
  • Clear Motion Rate 120
  • Wide Color Enhancer Plus
  • Dolby Digital Plus/Dolby Pulse
  • SRS TheaterSound HD

To say we are impressed with our Samsung Smart Wifi LED HDTV after only a few days is an understatement! We can’t wait to see what else it does as anything else is just a bonus.

  5. Thank you for your awesome review!! This TV sounds like a dream!! It’s pretty amazing that you don’t need any additional streaming device and can watch netflix or browse the net right on your your TV?!! That’s so handy!! I also love how you mentioned the TV was lighter than you expected and easier to set up. This is a huge thing for a woman like myself, who’s man is deployed in Afghanistan. I would need to be able to do this on my own and by your review, you have given me the confidence to believe I actually could. I can only imagine the wonderful “movie nights” my boys and I could cuddle up to with this TV. With such a crisp, clear picture, my boys would think they were in the movie theater!!

  6. I love how informative this review is. It touk he’s base on everything! It is good to know that it only takes 30 minutes from box to set up and is lightweight. Most TV are so heavy it takes more than one person to lift. Even more exciting to know that you can use the Internet on it!

  7. WOW. is amazing how many things can do.and with ease, on this system. Love to win, because I know on just a Social Security income could never afford!!

  8. I’m loving the pictures. You review helped me find out what the specs are. It’s good to know that it’s light because I live on a 2nd floor apartment and there’s no elevator. I’m glad it’s light enough to carry up the stairs!

  9. Smart t.v. is the way to go! I’d love to own one. You did an awesome review on it; how easy it was to set up, all the cool features and the photos were eye catching. Love it!

  10. I’m so jealous! Lol! I have a 32″ old tv, the bulky kind that probably weighs 75 lbs. My picture gets smaller and smaller every day. I consider myself blessed to have this tv. It is on it’s last 2 legs I think. This LED HDTV is just so purty. I love all the neat things on it. Especially being able to check FB on it. That’s so cool! Thank you for all the great info 🙂

    Reply
  11. What an amazing looking and sounding TV! I love the idea of being able to use the TV to directly access services such as Netflix and the like – no PS3 or other device needed. This is definitely going on my Christmas wishlist!

  12. I have never known much about the smart TV’s thanks for the review I sure learned a lot about these they are amazing I would love to own one.

    Reply
  13. It really does look good above your mantle piece!!! And 30 minutes to set it up and get it going is awesome. I’d love to win this for my family.. I’d like to experience the whole SmartTV thing for myself.. and I can tell just by your pictures how awesome the picture on the TV is!! Great review, thanks for sharing 🙂

  15. I didn’t know Smart TV’s did all these things. I love how easy it seems to do everything thru the remote. Looks and sounds like the dream TV that I’ve been looking for.

    Reply
  16. Wow, even on your pic it you can tell it has such a crisp picture. And the fact that it is light and has simple set up, is a great factor being as I am a single mom. In all honesty, this sounds like a blessing to own! 🙂

  17. What a great review! It was very informative and educational. Seriously makes me want to go out and get this tv! The specs and extras on the tv are amazing! Thank you

    Reply
  18. The things that sound appealing to me is the fact that it is light-ours is heavy-older model. I also like that it has the Smart hub & the Wi-fi built in. These are features that are important to me.

    Reply
  19. AWESOME! I love the set up and how its on the mantle (jealous) I have always wanted to be able to hang a tv. Thats cool it came super fast. I am very impatient when it comes to getting new things I can’t wait to play with. I never heard of this site, and the fact that you showed it was fast and also delivered perfect made me check the site out and looking to purchasr things from there now!

    Reply
  20. This looks like a great TV. I’m fascinated by a TV that I can access Facebook on as well as all the other services, like Netflix. The best part of the review for me was that it was so easy to install and so light weight. Sounds like the perfect TV for my bedroom.

    Reply
  21. i actually have this tv but a 40 inch, really like it, but do find that it is hard to program if you are not pc savvy….had to fet a friend to help me…would like one for the living room or 2nd bedroom

    Reply
  22. This TV looks like it has a bunch of features that would be great to have. This would work great in our bedroom to replace an ancient 27″ CRT TV and since it has WI-FI, it could connect without having to run any Ethernet cables.

    Reply
  23. WOW!!!!! We have evolved from rabbit ears to smart t.v’s!!!! It’s just amazing of all the things we can do to upgrade electronics that we once thought we couldn’t get any higher than we already were at but, evidently, we can go way up higher than we initially thought!!!!! I’m impressed!!!!

    Reply
  24. I like the fact that you give lots of details about the product and how easy it was to install. I have always wanted to own a smart tv but wasn’t really sure if it’s worth the money. That’s what i like about your reviews, you help me decide whether it’s worth the money or not so thanks.

    Reply
  25. I guess we’ve come a long way from tin foil on rabbit ear antennas, from the 1970’s. This thing has so many bells and whistles, it almost scares me. I’d have no idea how to turn it on. lol

    Reply
  26. Again, I have to say, that this is one contest where I really see so many great comments from other consumers. The reviews are believable honest, (I hope! Why lie?!?) and having been in the retail sector for a period, the least expensive type of advertisement is WORD OF MOUTH!!! It can make a company soar high as the sky, or tank to the sea. Sales + Service ARE A MUST!!!! I would love a Samsung Hi-Def Flat screen tv (I particularly love the curved one; the commercial, which I only see occasionally now; run it again Samsung! It’s a great one!). But having a review apot like powered by mom, let’s face it, most of the women in the families handles the finances. They spend ore times home (occasionally) or ae just more into having the product being what the family wanted. I am not saying that the husband/partner has no say, it’s usually the female who has to deal with the issue. GREAT SITE POWERED BY MOM!!!

  27. We have an LG Smart TV and love it. We are looking at replacing the TV in our family room. Samsung looks like they have some awesome TV’s too…we will have to check them out as well.

  28. This TV sounds awesome! I love that it is lightweight, has all of the Smart TV Options which makes it a mini computer and I love that it hooked up with your sound system as well! Fabyulous review, Thank You! I am a HUGE fab of Samsung, they make amazing products that last and that are built with quality in mind!

    Reply
  29. This TV sounds amazing! It’s not too big or too small and the built in WiFi really sold me on it as I use Netflix and Hulu Plus everyday! Thanks for a great review on it!

  30. I love it above the mantle. That is what we would do. It looks perfect. I like that it’s lighter than most and it is a LED. I’m sure I would enjoy it as much as you have. The picture quality looks very good. Thank you

    Reply
  31. I love the built in wi-fi. Like you we go throught the PS3 to get Netflix and Hulu, and I always think we are wearing down just to watch movies. The picture looks fantastic too.

  32. I have been following Powered by Mom for several plus years now. one of my favorite Blogs. Not much she misses when she reviews products. Whats not to like she covers it all.

    Reply
  33. I think I might have commented on this before but I guess I keep coming back to dream over it. I would love to get one but my husband won’t buy a new one until the old one is no longer working. Maybe I can help that along, lol.

    Reply
  34. Sounds like a very nice TV, I think my husband would like the fact of how easy it was to figure out and install. And I like the fact that is a lighter TV and not to heavy to handle. Plus all the nice features that it has with it.

    Reply
  35. Not only would this be the perfect size for my living room (which isn’t very big in my apartment), but it would be a big step up from my 720p non-Smart TV (which, in turn, was a step up from a TV that was older than me!).

    Reply
  36. This TV looks great and I love all the different features that are available. I also like that it’s LED as well as HD. Thanks for the review!

  37. Awesome looking TV. I love the features: built-in WiFi, Netflix, and being able to control the speakers from my TV remote. Thanks for the awesome review and fingers are crossed.

  38. Thanks for the review, and taking the picture. Our older “Smart” TV is great quality, but I really liked that interface to everything your picture showed. And easy set-up is something that our home requires. Guess we’ll be looking at Samsungs.

    Reply
  39. What a nice television. It does look really good on your mantle. My daughter would love having this tv for the Netflix feature.

    Reply
  40. I would love to have one of these. We’re currently doing all our streaming through our Playstation. I’m always paranoid that the Playstation will burn out with all the hours we log. I also love that we can access social network straight form the television and, of course the high quality picture is a definite plus.

  41. Samsung is a wonderful brand. There is so many tv’s out there it is hard to know where to begin. We need a new tv that is updated with the new items. We have many tv’s but all of them are old. Thanks for the detailed review. I need to know this information to purchase in the future.

    Reply
  42. I loved the reviews you did on the Smart TV you did an amazing job. Makes me want to go out and buy one right now for my hubby. I loved the different features the TV has to offer. Technology keeps getting better and better! Thank you for the review

  44. OMGosh this tv looks really bad azz!! I have a console TV that I bought in 1989…no kidding lol. I can hook it up to cable but not to the DVD player….no HD…no bells and whistles…just a basic TV lol. If I won this TV it would be simply amazing. I could never afford one on my own due to me being disabled. Thank you for the opportunity. Best of luck to all and happy holidays!!!

  50. My neighbor has a new Samsung smart t.v. The picture is unbelievably sharp, bright and so clear I was jealous. lol. No seriously, for me it’s important because my eye sight is very bad and I fell in love with it. You’re going to keep loving it. 🙂 When they hooked up the computer to their t.v. it was just amazing. Thanks for your great review and the pics.

  51. OMG, this smart TV looks amazing!!! It has everything. The only problem I will have with it is learning how to do all those things. The built in WIFI is awesome. I have a LED TV and I thought that it was a nice one but not compared to this one. I so want this!!

    Reply
  52. I would love a TV that does all of that! It would save money on getting a computer monitor. With the WiFi and internet access, I could just get a wireless keyboard and do my work! This would be awesome! I would love this TV! I need to check into that. Great review!

  54. Wow! I mean wowie wow! We have an 18 year old dinosaur so anything else is an improvement but to be able to get FACEBOOK on the tv- that just brings tears to my eyes- ok that’s a bit dramatic but were talking television here people there is room for drama!!!

  56. I love the 32″ size of this flat screen. Not too big, not too small! And only 30 min. for set up? That’s a record! I won’t even tell you how long it took us to set up our only flat screen! And who can not like that it’s a Samsung? Great reputation!

  57. It sounds just like the tv we are looking for. It is so hard now a days to find the right electronic item w/ all the choices. The review was great & it pin pointed everything I was interested in or looking at. Thanks for the review, it really helped!! I know it will help others..

  58. My tv is very old and has none of the great features this one has. 10 years is long enough. The wifi would be such a great thing to have on the tv screen!

    Reply
  59. You didn’t include any experience in operation, like lag, ease of navigation, settings control or connectivity to other devices except that it had them and your mount I assume was purchased separately. You did indicate it was lighter than your other set….. which it weighs how much? You were brave to drill your brick.

  60. Thanks for your review of this tv. It looks like one to think about when we do decide to get a new one(which my husband thinks is right now hahaha)

  61. We have a Samsung also, but I didn’t know it was capable of all these things. Ha Ha! I guess I am going to have to check further into all the apps. you can put on it! Great review and thank you!!!

  73. This is quite the TV! I know how much I like all the options on my smart phone so I think this would have a lot of advantages to accessing social media and external movies included in your TV. It’s amazing how technology has made our lives so condensed to where you can do everything in one place and from the same gadget.

  93. Wow! It would be awesome to get Netflicks straight to the T.V. and FB too! Sharp picture quality is always a bonus. Lately, whenever I’m watching a show on my T.V. and it’s a dark scene, it always seems a bit blurry anymore and I’m struggling to make it out.

  94. I have started looking into getting a smart tv. But, our current one is still very nice, and I can do almost anything with it. So.. think I’ll wait and get a smaller smart tv for the bedroom eventually.
