UN32J4001 from Samsung – The conclusion

The overall feeling about the product is satisfactory, it is not the best on the market, but it still allows to have an efficient television set.
The choice of Samsung not to include a smart TV system in this UN32J4001 seems a shame to us. In our opinion, many will choose another model among the competitors in this range, that will have an operating system.
This TV has the correct resolution, nothing more. Producing and marketing TVs today in HD is often sufficient and well suited for ‘basic’ uses. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. It is therefore a temporary and/or occasional choice. You’ve been warned.

From this new Samsung we can retain 3 positive points:
the sound power, the display frequency, the screen size.
