Product information

Samsung’s H5000 brings together Full HD and a high frame rate for the smoothest viewing. Colour enhancement technology boosts this even further while Freeview HD and easy USB playback keep you entertained. Football mode will even boost audio and visuals so you can see your favourite sporting moments in all their glory.

Vivid display
The 1080p Full HD screen is supported by Samsung Wide Colour Enhancer technology. This boosts contrast while making colours more vibrant so everything from games to films will look more realistic.

100Hz motion rate
Experience sharp picture quality, even when you are watching fast-moving images like sports or action movies. Games benefit too with pin sharp resolution and no motion blur.

Football mode
Feel like you're actually in the stadium cheering on your favourite team with Samsung's Football Mode. When activated, it optimises picture and sound settings for a better football viewing experience.

USB playback
It’s easy to watch films, look at pictures and play music without having to connect to your TV. Just connect a USB device to the TV and use the intuitive interface to find what you need.

Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Q & As

Samsung UE40H5000 LED HD 1080p TV, 40" with Freeview HD 4.5 5 21 21
Great at first!! I agree with all the comments on the picture quality, unfortunately mine has developed a sound fault, manifesting as stuttering sound when volume goes above about 40%, discovered that it is the left channel so by setting the balance on the equaliser to the extreme right it is useable until John Lewis swap it, which they are doing finally after a few protracted calls and mix ups , they first set up a collection and refund which i didnt want!!!, i want a replacement, this is now hopefully in progress but will have taken nearly 2 weeks, luckily the set is useable. Lets hope this is a one off, my last Samsung is still going after 8 years. 17 November 2014
Excellent TV Very happy with this TV, excellent picture and sound quality. Great price. I didn't need any of the smart features as have an apple tv for that so this was perfect. 10 November 2014
UE40H5000 LED This TV is fantastic value for money, I would recommend it. The picture is so clear especially when on HD I really like the frameless effect And coupled with the 5 year gurantee you won't find a better deal out there. And to top it all the delivery service from John lewis was first class 27 October 2014
Fab Telly Arrived on time, easy to set up with my Tivo box. Great picture, perfect size for the room and a 5 year guarantee thrown in. What more could you ask for? Great purchase, good service, many thanks. 10 October 2014
Samsung UE40H5000 LED HD 1080p TV, 40" with Freeview HD The big problem is the screen, at night with table/floor lighting it is reflected in the screen making it impossible to watch!! During the day the screen acts just like a mirror so you can see the reflection of everything in the room (especially if the sun is shining)!! My previous Samsung tv had a non reflecting type screen so can't understand why this new one doesnt? On this basis can't recommend the tv. 04 October 2014
