Samsung UE40J5512 has full hd resolution which is not bad but it is four times smaller than the 4k UHD resolution. Also this TV does not have local dimming technology, so the black parts of the images are missing depth. However it does support micro dimming pro which is not bad. The colors are good and vivid thanks to the wide color enhancer plus technology. The motion rate of 60 Hz is not that high but still can offer motions that run smoothly on the screen which is very important for the eyes. We will give 3.5/5 points for the Samsung UE40J5512 review part of the display.
Samsung UE40J5512 is a smart TV so you can connect it to the internet and browse online content. The connection can be established through the wireless integrated module or through the Ethernet LAN port. You can access and download many apps that will make the interaction with the TV so much better. The quad core processor can quickly and easily process any type of content, game or app. The RVU is a protocol that is used for the PayTV subscription and you can use the same subscription in other TVs as well if they support the RVU protocol too. Another useful feature is the V-Chip which makes the TV safe for family use.
This TV also has a bluetooth connection which can be useful if you want to connect external devices through the bluetooth connection. Also you can share your smartphone’s screen with the TV through the Mobile to TV Mirroring or vice versa through the TV to Mobile Mirroring. Or you can share it with the wi-fi direct tech. Samsung UE40J5512 has three HDMI ports so you can connect three devices at the same time and two USB ports which we think are enough. The digital receiver can receive terrestrial signals but can not receive satellite signals so you should consider buying an external decoder.
We will give 4/5 points for the Samsung UE40J5512 review part of the features.
Samsung UE40J5512 has two Dolby Digital built in speakers with 10 W power each. The total output power of 20 W is usually enough, unless you are standing too far from the TV. If this is the case you should consider buying external speakers that will turn your room into a home theater. If you do buy external speakers you can also take advantage of the multi room link technology. The sound is clear, but that depends on the quality of the content that you are watching. Also the surround sound mode is very good thanks to the DTS Premium Sound 5.1 technology, especially if you buy external speakers.
We will give 4/5 points for the Samsung UE40J5512 review part of the sound.
Samsung’s UE40J5512 design is very good. The frame has a nice grey shinny color wich looks very good. Also the frame is very thin which is very desirable nowadays. And the stander does not look bad also. We will give 5/5 points for the Samsung UE40J5512 review part of the design.
Samsung UE40J5512 Price
Our review price was from $450 to $500 which is not that bad for a 40 inch TV with smart interaction.

Samsung UE40J5512 has a nice screen size that can fit in any room. The full hd resolution is good but not as good as the 4k resolution. This TV does not have local dimming either. However this TV has all the essential features, like the smart interaction, the screen sharing technology and all the essential ports. The sound is loud and clear and the surround mode is very good. The design is superb and this TV does look expensive. The price is also good. Samsung UE40J5512 review in total has earned 20.5/25 points or 4.1/5 stars.
