Originally Reviewed on May 18th, 2014

Up for Review: Samsung UN29F4000AF LED HDTV.

The UN29F4000AF is the only 29-inch model among all models designed by Samsung in its 2013/14 lineup. The small screen size and light weight make it a suitable option for you especially when you have to change the position of your TV constantly. In some other cases, when you have already got a high-end feature-rich TV in your living room and want to install another additional TV set in your kitchen, dining space, office or dorm room, then you should opt for a lighter and smaller TV like the 29F4000AF.
It does not have a lot of features to talk about, yet it is quite handy with the good look and fine picture quality. Let’s take a quick look at the main features and specifications of the model, and study each of them in greater detail.

Samsung UN29F4000AF Features and Specifications:

  • TV Type: LED TV
  • Screen Size: 29 inches
  • High Glossy One Design with 0.5” Thin Bezel
  • Clear Motion Rate of 120
  • Screen Resolution: 1366×768
  • Wide Color Enhancer Plus
  • Game Mode
  • 1 USB and 2 HDMI Input Ports
  • ConnectShare Movie
  • 10-watt Audio with Dolby Digital Plus, DTS Studio Sound and DTS Premium Sound
  • ENERGY STAR 6.0 Compliance

Let’s begin with the High Glossy One Design, which provides the model a nice contemporary look. The screen is slim, flat and uniform. The half-inch thin bezel around the screen makes the panel look classy. The panel is small, cute and light-weight. The 2lbs weight makes it an easy gadget to install and handle. The LED technology helps produce fairly decent pictures. The screen resolution of this LED panel is 1366×768, which is 720p native display resolution. Considering the panel-size this much amount of screen resolution is enough to produce quality pictures. Most of the cable programming and over-the-air signals are still in 720p or 1080i, so Full HD 1080p resolution is something what needs you to spend extra on broadband connectivity. Also, tons of video games are there that are played to their full potential only on a 720p panel. Therefore, this is a splendid model at a substantially reduced price. The TV is programmed with Clear Motion Rate (CMR) 120, which is a unique combination of the effects produced by three important factors such as frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology. This CMR 120 enhances the motion performance by reducing the on-screen motion blur and judder to the least. There would be little to no judder on the screen means fast action sequences like Hollywood movies and action-packed scenes are smooth and completely immersive. The LED backlighting technology enhances the overall TV viewing quality by creating greater light throughput. Thanks to the Wide Color Enhancer Plus, the color range and hue level are boosted with too many new and fresh colors. In turn, all pictures look astoundingly beautiful.

The Game Mode would be considered as a special addition to this low-cost model. When the Game Mode is on, gamers would not get any noticeable input lag, which facilitates smooth and faster gaming. The USB port allows you to connect your USB stick and view the external content on the TV. Since it’s a ConnectShare Movie-enabled TV, you can just plug the USB device and play the content on the TV directly. Similarly there are 2 HDMI ports allowing you to connect two multimedia devices such as your digital camera and DVD player and view your favorite content on the TV seamlessly.

The two 5-watt speakers boosted with Dolby Digital Plus, DTS Studio Sound and DTS Premium Sound generate a decent output sound. Due to low power consumption it’s an ENERGY STAR 6.0 Compliant LED TV. gives Samsung UN29F4000AF 4/5 stars.

4 / 5 stars
