This is the 3rd Samsung TV we have purchased in the last year. The 1st was a 32" Model 4000. We liked it so much, we then purchased a 32" Model 4003 for our bedroom. Unfortunately, it became a victim of a "mild" California earthquake; tipping over onto the corner of the dresser and cracking the screen. (I should have restrained it better.) When we replaced it, we found a 32" Model 5203 Smart TV at a good price and sent the Model 4000 to the bedroom. We found all three models to have almost identical menus and were all very easy to setup and use. The primary difference was the added Smart TV functions on the Model 5203. We found the picture quality to be very good. The sound was, well, good for normal TV watching but it lacks enough bass for listening to most music. However, there is a connection for external speakers. The Smart TV functions work nicely. You can connect to the internet using either a cable or WiFi to your Router. One function is an App that lets you connect to the World Wide Web. It has an on-screen keyboard that works in a primitive way using the arrow keys on the remote but you need to get a wireless keyboard/mouse to maintain your sanity. Another App lets you stream live TV from the internet. It is called TWC TV and is provided by our cable provider Time Warner Cable. It works great! I can't say that for some other TWC things. We had a little trouble downloading the TWC TV app but found the Smart TV anti-virus software was blocking the download.

I love samsung products, I have a computer and a smart phone. The TV was a big let down! While the picture quality is fine, the response of the smart hub is slow and lacking in finesse. I was very disappointed in how the hub works and the response time for changing channels and changing from one app to the other. Forget web browsing! it is so clumsy! After a bit of looking on the web, I see I need to buy a key board to really get any use out of the web browser. That shouldn't be! As I have said, I am let down with this TV.

Has it's quirks, but none are deal-breakers.

Comments about Samsung 32" Black LED 1080P Smart HDTV:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This product is excellent for its price, performance and quality. The features are outstanding.
Smart TV is slow but Picture is great
I like this TV. Great picture. The Smart TV is very slow. I compared it to my brothers Roku and it runs much faster. Wonder if I would have been smarter to not by the Smart TV and added my internet access with a USB device.
from Northern Ky
I looked at smart tv's for quite a while and read reviews. I must say that Samsung out shines the other brands. . From the phenomenal picture to the stereo sound and smart features, this is without a doubt the best buy for the money. From the time you set the tv up you have constant support along with a technician that is live over the phone to take care or help with any issues or concerns you may have. Samsung is the leader of smart tv's . BEST BUY in my book
worth the extra few bucks

About Me Casual User
Tried a couple of other 32 inch TVs, they didnt last more than a year or the picture wasn't as clear as this Samsung.It's worth the extra dollars to get this model.
Service and delivery comments:
Excellent. Shipped out the next business day after my online order. Arrived through UPS in good condition even though it was not double boxed.
Product Requires Tweeking
The color and contrast require tweeking for the proper color display. Also the ECO Light had to be turned off, because in the evening the picture became to dark. Ohter wise the set is excellent.
Between defition, Apps, and view is like been a baby boy in Disney Now I have all my Mancave complete
