Samsung UE32J5100 Full HD 1080p 32-Inch LED TV : Great TV for its price

Problem with audio delay when using hdmi over cat5e. Ok i love samsung products and this is tv is fine but i experienced an issue that 99% of people wouldn’t be bothered by, but when purchasing this tv i couldn’t find any review that covered this specific issue so i thought that i would write a review in case you are also attempting to do the same thing. I wanted to use an hdmi splitter from my sky+ hd stb with an hdmi transmitter/receiver to send hdmi tv signal over a single cat5e cable to another room in my house (kitchen as it happens. Technically this is fine and relatively easy to do with the right kit. The problem that i faced is that although the picture quality over hdmi tx/rx and cat5e is great, the sound slowly drifts and loses synchronisation with the picture over time. In other words progressive audio delay. I could not replicate this with other tvs that i own (sony, toshiba specifically) using exactly the same hdmi tx/rx equipment and cat5e port in my kitchen. The audio drift gets to a point where it becomes impossible to watch the tv. Very difficult to diagnose the reason why and you would need a degree in audio tv to work it out, but trust me this happens. Samsung blame this on my sky service or the tv channel itself (trust me this is not the case as i have used sony and tosh on the same kit and see no noticeable delay).

Great tv at the right price. I paid £189 on black friday which i thought was a bargain. This will be used in our bedroom. It does have the sleep timer function, someone on a previous review said it didn’t, but it doesvery light and easy to put up on the bracket. Great quality picture and sound ample.

Good looks, very clear picture. Lovely television,good looks,very clear picture,good price.

Comments from buyers

“Samsung UE40J5100 Review, Pleasantly surprised, Perfect TV for grandma. No Internet or Smart features, but a good TV with enough inputs, offering great picture and decent sound, Excellent for use with PS4, Best TV for the price. Quality is excellent., my first H.D set”

Bought the tv mainly to use with my playstation 3. Was looking for something not expensive with low lag input for comfortable gaming. Luckly, this one did not dissappoint me. Great design, quality picture, worth the price.

Best tv for under £200 i could find and i’m very pleased too.

I bought this in the 48inch version, and it’s a great tv. Plus points:1- it looks great. The frame is nice and thin, with the speakers facing the rear so they can’t be seen. 2- the user interface is smart and easy to use. 3- the remote looks great, it’s the perfect size and does the job well. 4- the tv has plenty of inputs including a usb and two hdmi sockets. 5- the picture and sound are both fantastic for standard living room use. 6- in case you lose the remote, it has a handy circular joystick at the back so you can navigate the menu directly from the tv. Negative points – these are minor, but things that could be improved:1- the picture-in-picture mode forces one of the pictures to be live tv from an aerial, which means you can’t for example play on a game console while watching a dvd in the smaller picture.

    A good value tv, easy to install and use. Self set up to include my now tv box. Very occasionally drifts off channels but quick and easy to reset. The base is not the strongest but assembles ok and if sitting on a broad enough surface is fine. Sound is more than acceptable.

    We were pleased with the speed of delivery it arrived on the. We have had samsung sets before so we hoped this would be to our expectations and it was just that. Fits in perfectly and doesn’t over power the room. We were pleased with the speed of delivery it arrived on the date given and time given so good all round.

    Very lightweight ideal to sit on shelving. . We got this item for the bedroom as the size was just right only down side is headphones. Need to be manually inserted cant switch from headphone to tv sound without removing them.

      All i wanted was a high quality 32 inch monitor and this ticks all the boxes. The picture quality is great and the sound is remarkable for such a thin device. I do not use the tv tuner but the picture for hdmi content through my pc and xbox is great.

      Great buy, value for money. . Took delivery of the tv last tuesday 5 january, took some time to fit the base but found it really easy to tune the set in. I was having problems tuning the sky remote in. With the help of my daughter she had to clear the memory on the remote to tune in to the tv. This is the first time i have purchased a samsung previously i always had panasonics tvs. I have moved up from 32″ to 40″ and highly recommend the samsung. The picture and sound are first rate and the price is right. I looked at the more expensive tvs to be quite honest i object to paying silly money to watch some of the rubbish which is being dished up by the broadcasters.

    Does what you want from, what is now, a small tv. Reaction to remote control is a little slow but other than that it can’t be faulted.

    Great picture for ps4, battlefield 4 looks so much better now, only thing i didnt like and was kind of expecting was an input for my headphones but overall great tv.

      Great tv as always from samsung this is the 3rd. Great tv as always from samsung this is the 3rd one over the last few years i’ve purchased and this one was replacing a 10 yr old plasma from same company, picture quality is good, not sure on sound as i have a surround sound setup i doubt its any worse than most modern tv’s.

    Good quality picture on basic features tv. . Bought for my ageing mum so didn’t want a smart tv to confuse her. Used with a virgin media box but thought i would just try and see if her old internal loft aerial could pick up any freeview. It picked up most of the main channels and i was pleasantly surprised at the quality of hd pictures. Crystal clear and i’m sure with a decent roof aerial it would get a full range of channels. She is very pleased with it which is the main thing.
