To start off, I’d like to say that Samsung makes some pretty nice products. Whether you’re talking about their phones or Blu-Ray players, Samsung’s quality is superb. This is especially true when it comes to Samsung televisions.
Samsung UN46H5203 Features
I got my hands on the Samsung UN46H5203 and checked it over thoroughly. This Samsung television is a 46” Class 1080p Smart LED HDTV. Here are some of this television’s specs:
- Smart TV
- 46” Display
- LED Display Type
- 1920 x 1080 Resolution
- Accepts a 1080p Signal
- 2 HDMI Ports
- 2 USB Ports
- 1 Component Video Input
- 1 Composite Input
- 41.7” x 24.6” x 3.7” Dimensions (WxHxD)
- 60 Hz Refresh Rate
Upon unboxing the Samsung UN46H5203 television, I’m a little disappointed in the thickness of the tv. While I’ve seen similar LED televisions as thin as an inch, this tv is 3.7” thick. Although this is a minor disappointment, it isn’t a killer as the overall tv is light and able to be hung on the wall with no problem.
After briefly reading the instruction manual, I connected the Samsung UN46H5203 television. Set up was a breeze. Once up and running, I checked out some of the cool options this television offers. I’ll go over most of them.
Now depending on where you’re going to put this television, a 46” display might be perfect for you. The room I am testing this in is about 16’ by 12’. The tv isn’t too big for the room and isn’t too small for the room.
Being a Smart TV, this opens up a huge realm of possibilities. After setting up a free Samsung account, you are able to download a vast number of applications. This allows your television to become more than just a plain tv. You have the ability to stream movies, videos, music, and more. This Smart TV even allows you to surf the web with its built-in browser. Enjoy everything from online shopping, social media browsing, entertainment news, and the latest YouTube hits.
Clear Motion Rate 120 and Stunning Resolution
This television has a 60 Hz refresh rate. This means images refresh 60 times per second for basic performance during fast motion scenes. However, this Samsung television has their clear motion rate 120 technology built-in. This allows you to enjoy high speed action with good motion clarity. Accompany that with a 1080p resolution, you’re able to watch Blu-Ray movies and 1080p HD content at their highest level of detail.
Superb Audio Technology
This television comes with 2 built-in, full-range speakers. Each speaker delivers 10 watts of output power and features Dolby MS10 technology, DTS Premium Sound 5.1, and DTS Studio Sound. There is also an auto volume leveler. Hate when a show goes to commercial and the volume cranks up a few notches? Well, not anymore. The auto volume leveler prevents sudden increases in sound, especially for TV commercials and movie soundtracks.
Use One Remote and S Recommendation
The last cool feature I’ll talk about is the ability to use one remote. It’s such a pain to have to use numerous remotes. Luckily, you can minimize the number of remotes you’ll need. The Samsung UN46H5203 comes with an IR device. You plug in the cable and place the IR device in front of your cable box. Now you are able to control your television and cable box using only one remote. The Samsung television provides its own programming guide that is beautifully designed. The S Recommendation feature uses your preferences to find the movies and shows you’ll enjoy.
After using the Samsung UN46H5203 for a few days, I give it a 4.5 rating out of 5. The reason for not a full 5 stars is because of the 3.7” thickness and 60 Hz refresh rate. The thickness and refresh rate are not deal breakers. I’ve seen televisions with a 120 Hz and 240 Hz refresh rate. With this television’s clear motion rate 120 technology, it would be hard to distinguish the difference. For the amount of features this television comes with and the price point, I would actually recommend the Samsung UN46H5203 Smart TV.
