Samsung UN39FH5000F Review – 39-inch LED HDTV

Originally Reviewed on May 19th, 2014

Up for Review: Samsung UN39FH5000F LED HDTV.

The UN39FH5000F is a look-alike of the F5000 series offering the Direct LED Backlighting as the only difference. It is coming only in one size, i.e. 39 inches. It has got Full HD 1080p resolution that produces stunning pictures consistently. The Direct LED backlighting is an impressive property that strengthens the picture quality in terms of display uniformity and screen brightness. It does not compete with a high-end feature-heavy model, but stands fast as an excellent performer with its handful of features. The reduced price tag makes it a fantastic LED TV that offers strong value to its owner.

Here is the list of all its noteworthy features and specifications. Let’s take a cursory look at the features and review all of them in greater detail.

Samsung UN39FH5000F Features and Specifications:

  • TV Type: LED TV
  • Screen Size: 39 inches
  • High Glossy One Design with 0.7” Thin Bezel
  • Direct LED Backlighting
  • Clear Motion Rate of 120
  • Screen Resolution: 1920×1080
  • Wide Color Enhancer Plus
  • Game Mode
  • 1 USB and 2 HDMI Input Ports
  • ConnectShare Movie
  • 20-watt Audio with Dolby Digital Plus, DTS Studio Sound and DTS Premium Sound
  • ENERGY STAR 6.0 Compliance

Even though the 39-inch UN39FH5000F is a budget model, you would not see any compromise on the look. It’s built with the same High Glossy One Design concept that is used to design most of the high-end models of the brand. The bezel around the flat LED screen is just 0.7” thin, which brings an elegant look to the model. As you switch on the TV and watch the first video, you would understand why Samsung is considered as the master of quality picture display. The TV has got its proprietary Direct LED backlighting technology that makes the on-screen content brighter and sharper. This also produces a uniform display throughout the screen. The Clear Motion Rate of 120 uses three display related factors such as frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology to measure the motion performance. This brings the annoying factors like judder, flicker and motion blur down to least level and facilitates smooth and fast TV viewing especially when you’re watching fast motion pictures like Hollywood movie scenes or eye-catching After FX-mix graphic films. The Full HD 1080p resolution does an outstanding job to deliver crystal-clear images both on still and moving sequences. Thanks to the Wide Color Enhancer Plus, the on-screen images look astoundingly beautiful with expanded color and hue range. The Game Mode is a fantastic inclusion especially for all gamers. It reduces the possible input lags substantially and provides a faster and smoother gaming platform.

Despite being a budget model, it offers full digital connectivity. It has got 1 USB and 2 HDMI input ports. You can connect your USB stick on the port and directly view the content on the TV without having to install any additional equipment or software on the panel. This has been possible due the ConnectShare Movie feature. Moreover, you can connect your multimedia devices such as your digital camera and DVD player on the supplied HDMI ports and play the device content directly on the TV seamlessly. Do not worry about the format of your external files because the TV is programmed to support a good number of audio and video formats.
Talking about the audio, there are two 10-watt speakers programmed with Dolby Digital Plus, DTS Studio Sound and DTS Premium Sound technologies. As a result, the output sound becomes quite impressive and loud as well. It’s also an ENERGY STAR 6.0 Compliant LED TV due to its low power consumption. gives Samsung UN39FH5000F 4/5 stars.
