Samsung UE37D5520 Review
Samsung UE37D5520 37-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 100Hz LED SMART Internet TV
The Samsung UE37D5520 is full of the latest wizardry to bring a great viewing experience. The principal feature of this model is its ultra-clear 37″ LED display. LED displays are found in the latest generation flat screen TVs and offer many benefits. As the name suggests, it uses LED backlighting Edge LED technology instead of the older technology that uses cold cathode flourescent system found in most other LCD TVs.
The result is that the Samsung UE37D5520 using far less power and is very energy efficient. In fact it has an ‘A rating’ according to the EU Energy Labeling system. In ‘ECO mode’, this LED TV only uses between 34-90 watts of power depending on the settings. This is incredible and is very efficient. The LED TV technology also means that the Samsung is extremely thin, at only 29.9mm deep!
This particular Samsung LED TV is also better at dissipating heat than traditional LCD TVs and tends to have a brighter display and higher contrast, so whites are whiter and blacks are blacker. This Samsung has an ultra-crystal clear 1920×1080 Hyper Real Engine display! Phew! So what does all that jargon actually mean? Well, basically when we are talking ultra-sharp, we are talking about twice the resolution of standard HD!
Another defining aspect of the Samsung UE37D5520 is that it’s the latest generation Smart TV. This means that you can use Samsungs App store. It allows you to access Internet services such as LoveFilm, BBC iPlayer, Skype and even watch YouTube videos! There are loads of apps to choose from and it will transform the capabilities of your TV…not to mention future-proof it.
Allshare is another brilliant and innovative feature of the Samsung UE37D5520. Allshare allows you to connect your TV to all your compatible wireless devices. It basically means that you can search, stream and play back content from your computer or any other compatible wireless device directly through your TV! The Samsung thus becomes a total media centre!
In terms of audio quality, the Samsung UE37D5520 has Dolby Digital Plus surround sound. However, as with any TV set, it is usually best to purchase an independent speaker system to get the best quality sound. However, the sound system is of more than adequate quality until it is turned up to its maximum which is when you will get some distortion and lower quality. In some cases customers have complained that the sound is quite ‘tinny’. this is largely due to the high volume and can easily be corrected by altering the in-built EQ function in the sound menu. Just raise the bottom end and lower the top 2 bands. This will ensure that you get great quality, even sound at higher volumes.
So what do others think of the Samsung UE37D5520?

It is highly praised and any sort of problems with the picture or sound quality is usually fixable by making small adjustments to the settings from the menu.

This model is actually available in 40″ and 46″ versions for greater choice depending on your room size. The Samsung UE37D5520 is a super-modern, super-stylish and ultra-thin LED TV that is very popular with customers who have bought it.
