The present Samsung UN40J5200AFXZA review is dedicated to the 40-inch Full HD mid-range model that was manufactured in 2015 and belongs to the J5200 series.
This TV, unfortunately, doesn’t offer a 4K/UHD quality but features decent 1920 x 1080 resolution with LED backlight, offering a crisp and clear image. This way, you will be able to watch TV-shows and movies on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, HBO, Vudu or Google Play in a resolution that is twice as high as a standard HDTV. Having a motion rate of 60, this model keeps up with the fast-moving content, delivering seamless motion for better viewing. The Wide Color Enhancer feature offers enriched color palette and better brightness even on older, non-HD content.
The Eco Sensor is probably one of the most remarkable Samsung UN40J5200AFXZA specs since it allows managing your energy use and ensures that the screen works as efficiently as possible. How? The Eco Sensor defines the light intensity in the room and adjusts the brightness of the screen to it. This helps cut down energy consumption by approximately 26%.
The Samsung ConnectShare Movie feature allows playing media from a USB storage device. You can use it to play movies right from your USB-enabled camera, get access to media on an external hard drive, watch content from a flash drive, etc.
The TV also has a Smart Apps feature which includes social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. It also includes streaming TV and movies, sports, social media, interactive games, weather, etc.
The Samsung UN40J5200AFXZA TV goes with an integrated Wi-Fi and web browser so you can browse online on the big screen right from your couch which is very convenient. Talking about wired connectivity, this model, unfortunately, offers only one USB port and two HDMI ports. However, there are also a number of other connectivity possibilities, like component and composite video inputs, both analog and digital audio outputs, and an Ethernet port.
This TV weighs 16.3 lbs, having 11.3 x 36.3 x 23.2 inches of size dimensions. It has a black body and stands on a solid long leg. This type of stand is much more reliable than a standard Y-shaped TV stand. This way, you probably won't have to search for the Samsung UN40J5200AFXZA screen replacement because your TV accidentally fell off. However, you can also mount the TV on the wall.
The sound provided by the integrated 20W stereo speakers is truly impressive: they are supplied with 5.1 surround sound support and DTS Premium Sound. Many premium-quality TVs don’t have these sound features. The sound results to be clear, volumetric, with crisp highs, and resonant bass response. However, it is recommended to replace these speakers with a pair of external ones if you need an enhanced volume level.
Samsung provides a 1-year warranty period for this model during which it guarantees to replace all the poor-quality Samsung UN40J5200AFXZA parts (or provide you with a new well-functioning TV) if you happen to get a defective model.
