Samsung UN28H4500 28-Inch Smart LED TV via Amazon
Matte black Samsung UN28H4500 with wavy line design is a 28 inch (27.5 inch exactly) high definition smart LED LCD panel edge-lit TV with 1366 x 768 pixels native resolution- supporting 720p, a refresh rate of 60Hz- the Clear Motion rate is 120 so you get less distortion in action or sports. It has the Wide Color Enhancer Plus for vibrant and true-to-life enhanced and enriched colour reproduction with wider colour spectrum even when the content you’re viewing is not high definition.
Samsung UN28H4500 was released in the third quarter of 2014. It has the Smart TV features with the integrated wireless allowing you to access 5 panel Smart Hub that arranges your content into 5 different panels- apps, social media, movies, television and streaming content which you can easily connect to or manage your favourite contents or you can also use the built-in Ethernet connectivity for wired internet access. Internet connection- to your home network, either wired or wireless is very easy and fast with the built-in Wi-Fi or Ethernet port. You can stream multimedia or watch videos, movies or TV in HD quality in fine detail.
For sound, you have the integrated full-range and down firing 2 x 5W speakers for fairly good sound quality and the possibility of sending sound to another sound system like a home theatre for multiple channel playback and the DTS Studio Sound with the virtual surround sound, clear dialogs, improved bass and regular 2-channel stereo audio tracks. It has 2 x HDMI ports and 2 x USB ports, high resolution sound and video, a component video input shared with a composite video to interact with low resolution stuff. The more you use your TV and the smart hub, the easier customised it becomes with the S Recommendation suggesting shows and movies to watch according to your habits.
It is very simple to set-up and the language options are English, Spanish and French. It weighs 8.2 pounds and has the dimensions of 25.3 x 15.6 x 2.5 inches without stand, has an 12.7mm bezel and an arc stand design. The alternative is the Samsung UN28H4000 without the Smart Hub, wireless connection, one less USB port and slightly different stand design so it is cheaper than the UN28H4500 with the review on this page. As a con, the resolution could be better- like in Full HD but they both offer the same great picture quality. Both are Energy Star certified televisions so they will help you save on power bills. Standard power consumption is less than 0.3 watts.
