LG 49LB5500 Vs Samsung UE40F5300 LED TV specs review

By Daniel Chubb - Nov 28, 2014

The LG 49LB5500 49-inch full HD 1080p LED TV comes with Freeview at a very similar price today, as the Samsung UE40F5300 40-inch Smart LED TV that also comes with Freeview HD and 1080p. The difference in price is just £50, although in terms of specs and when we review the screen size it’s clear both will suit different consumers.

Today, we want to review the specs for both models and see how they compare at this £280 to £330 price point. Both options are priced extremely well today and well worth the money, although what HDTV you pick will depend on your needs.

The full technical specifications can be read for finer details like weight, measurements, and special features can be seen here. There’s also a product demo taking a closer look at the LB550 model.

Samsung’s UE40F5300 is smaller at 40-inches and shaves some of the cost thanks to the current £279. While the display size might be 9-inches smaller, it comes with the addition of being ready for WiFi and this requires a dongle, an extra HDMI with 3 ports for more media possibilities, an extra USB with 2 ports, and different technology for picture enhancement with Hyperreal Engine.

There’s a memory card slot on the UE40F5300 and Samsung’s Smart Hub is second to none for many shoppers. The PDF manual for this TV, firmware updates, and full tech specs can be found on this Samsung webpage. The 40-inch F5300 Series 5 Smart LED TV display and audio specs sheet can be seen below.

    I know Samsung is meant to be a better TV, but LG at 49-inches compared to a 40-inch display for these prices, I just had to pick the bigger TV.
