I am changing my review after using for 5 months. There was a dark spot started to appear on the bottom side. First there was one spot and then it become two and then three. I raised a complaint with samsung and they change the Display panel at free of cost. Then it was all fine for couple of weeks, Again a dark spot started to appear in a different place. I raised complaint for second time and they gave me full refund. Samsung customer care was excellent. But unfortunately i had to give up on the TV because of dark spots.
Exisiting owners please check for the issue. Dark spots will be prominent in bright scenes. It appears in bottom side.
Recently bought this TV. But not from Flipkart. After a lot of research thought of buying 32F5100. And came around this model in internet. This model is not yet popular because its launched very recently. So planned to put the extra money and go for latest model. Using this TV for last one month and I can say I am satisfied.
1. Excellent Picture quality. Especially HD content.
2. Sound quality is awesome. Keeping the mode in Standard and activating clear voice feature and keeping the volume at 12 or 13, I can feel the real DTS quality.
3.Design is supreme. Its so sleek and I can never realize that there is a panel around the TV.
4. Extremely light weight.
5. Power consumption is very less.
6. USB to USB transfer, screen and sound capture ( It can be done only if you connect USB or HDD)
7. plays almost all the format of videos seamlessly (tried MKV, FLV, AVI, MP4, VOB and few others.)
8. Quick detection of external device connected.
1. Cricket Mode is not so good. This mode just increases the color and sharpness. and increases the background noise in stadium. I would rather prefer watching in Movie mode.
2. Placement of HDMI cable and on USB ports are so clustered. had difficulty in plugging the USB to the port initially. But used to it now. I wish there should be enuf space between them. Anyway those who use one USB port wont face any problem.
3. No E-manual.
4. No facility to switch between the paused Media content and set-top box content. if you pause any videos you watching in USB and switch to cable or set-top box content and again switch back to videos in USB, you must start the USB content from first. ( you can anyway pause, stop, forward and rewind the content while playing USB content )
Overall I am satisfied with this Full HD LED TV. You can go for it without second thought.
Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Realistic color, Lightweight
Good TV But with less options for audio out

Display is good. Audio is average.
It has got only normal analog audio out (i.e It even do not have Digital Audio Output- (Optical) for this price) and Sound Technology is also normal DTS.
Also there is huge fluctuation in price listed in flipkart.

I got it from a local vendor, however Flipkart's service would be pretty good so no need to worry about that.
I had selected this model, the Sony klv-40r482b, and LG 42LN5400
The LG one I couldnt find locally so had to drop the plan, so it was between the Sony and this Samsung one.
I saw both in the outlets and the thin bezel and sharp contrast of the Samsung impressed me. The Sony one was also really good, however it had a slightly thicker profile and was about 4000 rupees more expensive than this one. Sony had inbuilt wifi to connect to phones etc, but I was not interested in that feature.
This TV plays ALL formats you can throw at it, I've played mkv,mp4(divx,xvid),vob,avi.. everything runs smooth on it.
Speakers sound is a bit flat, but that is the case with all TV's in this range.[Loudness is not a problem]
Viewing angle is about 50degrees on either side.. pretty good for a 15x20 feet room
The picture clarity is also very very good. Blacks are very deep and white's are pretty bright too, making for a crisp and realistic color.
Has a host of other gimmicks/features which I wont be using. Also due to it's slim bezel it looks really good even when switched off.
I got it for 46000/- from a local vendor so it was a good deal.
If you want a no frills 40' LED TV under Rs 50000, this is the one you should go for.

As far as product is concerned, its really good for the price tag of 31k. I got it courtesy the billion day sale for 1k less :).
The sound & picture quality are really awesome. A word of caution though is , to have a HD setop box because with SD box, the quality isn't really good. Only after i changed to HD box, even SD channels looked much better.
Expect for rare trouble with installation which got heavily delayed, this transaction has been pleasant.
At this price, this is the best full HD (non-smart, 3d) offering.

Previously I had one 42 inch Panasonic plasma TH-42PV7HS TV and since I want to upgrade to 48 inch and LED, zeroed upon Samsung UA48H5100AR 48 inch led TV.
Built : very delicate, though formfactor is slim and good
Picture Quality: despite being full hd, the picture is sub par compared to 780p Panasonic, which is simply amazing. Using TataSky HD and picture quality is horrible,
Features: Basic and necessary, compared to Panasonic, only advantage USB connectivity.
GUI : Very good.
I truly miss my Panasonic picture quality, Samsung no where near to that.
Price is excessive, compared to built, picture quality, wish I got it for 20k,
Awesome TV with awesome picture quality.

I got this TV not from flipkart.
I must say its a awesome TV with amazing picture quality.
Pros: Full HD,nice to watch blu-ray or 1080P movies.Awesome picture quality for HD set top box.easy controls & easy to setup.
Cons : Sound quality is not so good.
If you r going to use home theater system or 5.1 speaker system then its a must buy.
Highly disappointed with product quality & customer service of Samsung

We purchased 32" inch samsung LED in oct-2013 and within 11 months it led display panel stopped working. Thank god we had 1 year warranty and they replaced the panel free of cost but that display panel again stopped working within 15 days. Again we got replacement free of cost. The samsung people told us to buy extended warranty for 3 years which we immediately purchased but four months gone and we have still not received warranty card. Now the problem is after 4 months of replacement, the display panel has again stopped working. this has happened thrice in last 4 months. Getting free replacement is also not easy as you have to wait for 15 days to get replacement and that too after hundreds of follow-ups with the customer care. Horrible experience with Samsung. I will never buy Samsung product again in my life and I suggest other people too.

i have purchased 2 tv's same model from eday, but both had got dust behind screen just after 2 months, please do not buy it on eday, flipkart is trusted site to buy any product. for clarity & sound i would give 5 ratings, compared to other brands.
Good product at a slightly higher price

I bought this TV after having a round of views in showrooms and compared a lot of TVs around LG, Samsung, Sony, Panasonic and Onida. As per my requirements of an LED TV having good picture quality, I narrowed down to 2 TVs on LG and 1 on Samsung. What I noticed in the showrooms was that the LG TVs had a slight pinkish hue when viewed below the viewing angle and the colors were not as expressive as they were on Samsung or Sony. So, I narrowed down on this TV (Sound quality was never a criteria as I was going to use a Home Theater system) and ordered it from Flipkart.
Flipkart delivery was more than punctual. WSRetail did a wonderful job by delivering the TV to me in just 2 days. :-) I had no plans of getting the TV on the date I received since I was easily relaxing back at home and had to rush to my office since that location was the delivery address. And when I saw the packing and the way the TV was packed, I did not want the delivery guy to open it in the first place. Aptly placed, properly handled, Fragile marks all around and even the cardboard borders to hold the TV together even in case of rough handling, spoke volumes.
Back home, I had to call the Samsung Installation guy a few times to honor his date of installation and follow up with Flipkart to do the same as well but in 48 hours, I was able to get the installation done. The demo was given and the work done very professionally. Then I connected my home theater and watched Hobbit : The Desolation of Smaug on it the very same day and was blown away by the viewing experience. It was almost similar to how it was when I watched it in the movie halls (the screen size was lesser; clarity was to the point). This movie was a 1080p Bluray print with 5.1CH audio, so no way anyone could say that the movie print might be flawed. The picture was just the same as it should be.
The next day, I watched Day After Tomorrow and 2012 (both via Bluray disks) and even then it was spot on. So, the picture quality is just great.
With Tata-Sky, I am disappointed with the product. I checked the same with a Panasonic and I found that the picture quality was better with Tata-Sky. Then I checked with HD channels and the quality was still not that great.
I also play my PS-3 games on the TV and I am really happy with the viewing experience of the games. So, I am only not happy with TataSky viewing but it meets my needs for Gaming and Movie watching.
Hope this helps. :-)

I recently bought this TV from a dealer. I won't discuss it's features as they are already mentioned at many places :P
All the features of this TV works very well and video-audio quality is really awesome.
There is only one issue I found: even though its mentioned that this TV supports videos in .mov format, is gives issues with audio codec for them.
You may find this TV supporting .mov videos which you have converted using some video converter, but when you try to play videos which are shoot from professional camera or digital camera, it doesn't support their audio codec and only video is played in mute.
In summary, this TV is worth the price.
