This 32" 1080p Samsung television set is the perfect size for a bedroom or small living area. It has a beautiful display with flattering colors right out of the box. Assembling the base to the display panel just takes a few seconds with the included screws. The set is very light weight, I couldn't believe how light it was; it weighs less than my 23" LED computer monitor. Pros: * Great picture with no tweaking required. (I turned off the ambient light sensor though, it made the display too dark in most cases). * Excellent sound quality, it has a full range, room-filling sound that is impressive for little flat panel speakers. I was actually surprised at how much better sounding it is than the large CRT set it replaced. * Universal remote and remote extender to control cable or satellite box. Works great with my DirecTV box. * Anti-glare screen does a great job of controlling glare. * Samsung quality. Seriously, Samsung has their act together. * WiFi connectivity is stable, no dropouts. Cons: * Set is way too top-heavy because of the hollow, overly light-weight stand. Does not grip surfaces well, just bumping a cord can cause the entire set to move. Seriously, this set would be much better off with a heavier base. If you have cats, prepare for your tv to be moved or frequently tipped over. The base is the worst part of this set. Fill it with lead fishing weights or something to give it some stability. * Apps and other 'smart' features are very slow to load, including the programming guide. That's it. Overall it's a great entry-level smart tv. For it's price-point it is expected to have it's quirks, but none of them break the functionality of the set. The way too light stand is worst part. If you can deal with that, it's an affordable tv with a full 1080p display and has amazing picture quality.

Samsung smart tv un32h5203 I was disappointed on Samsung for making a worthless smart tv. It had a poor designed usb port supported media player that did not work and not enough of features. I tried a different usb flash drives and hard drive, but each media I used had a same result. I used the same usb flash drives in another non smart tv and I never had a problem. The video player would cut it self off in the middle of the video and goes to the tv screen. Sometimes, music video will start playing from the middle of the video not from the beginning. The random video picks only play alphabetically and numerically no matter what order I picked. The proper working music video player is very important to me because I rely on the music video player every day during the exercise. This is the second exact model samsung smart tv I tried. I took the first exact model smart tv back because of the same issues. How could I have got stuck with two different tvs with exact same problem unless it's a problem among many smart tvs samsung designed. It can't be my usb flash drives because I used the same usb flash drives in another non smart tv and I never had a problem. I am still using the same flash drives now and still do not have problems. If I select the filter to all(video, music, pictures) instead of just video the player's random video selection will disappear. I tried to solve the problem with the service call. I was told it will be fixed in two days, but I never received any fixing. Another problem I had with the usb flash drive ports was it will not identify the original name of each drive. It would only identify each drive as usb1, usb2, usb3...etc. Finding a file is harder than it need to be because the tv do not display thumb nails. The netflick and hulu apps were horrible. It does not support mouse and key board which makes hard to navigate to find what movie or show you want to find. Also, It does not have the search button, so If you are at the middle of the movie selection screen you have to scroll all the way to the top before you can use the search. I ended up taking the tv back. This is the second smart tv I had to take it back. The tv lacked so many features and malfunctions with the media player It was not worth of paying extra money. I do not recommend the Samsung smart tv to anyone. I would give a negative star.

Comments about Samsung 32" Black LED 1080P Smart HDTV:
Actually, I purchased this TV because you sent me an email holiday specials. So far the TV has been very good. The only reason I didn't say excellent was because it is a little slow in connecting up to the apps. Otherwise it is excellent. Thank You
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love my new Samsung TV!
from Bay Village, OH, USA
Replaced our Samsung TV in our bedroom with a larger screen Samsung TV. (As you get older you can't read the words on the screen as well - needed a larger screen!) Our old bedroom TV is being moved to my husband's workshop. He's delighted as it will be replacing a small non-HD TV.
I just purchased two of these set . They are a great value and the picture is great. I have other smart sets and love them
every thing you needin one easy to use package, truly amazing!
I was somewhat dismayed,at first, with all of the features on this tv, but as time went by, I learned how to use these features for what they are, and there are so many!
Absolutely Great Product
When choosing a TV for our bedroom, there were several features we were looking for. First was the quality of the picture. The Samsung had such a clearer brighter picture than any other we had looked at. The fact that it is a Smart TV. Since we are an older couple, we had no idea what a Smart TV was. The associate helped us so much to understand all the extra features that came with the TV. To be able to get on the internet if needed or just because we wanted tooo...the sleep timer is great...everything was so simple to operate. I can't thank you enough for producing such a GREAT TV Thank You So much
Use it every day
Really enjoy this tv. Paired it with phone. That was pretty cool. Still learning what it can do. Very pleased.
