Ordered on 21st Sep, 2017 on Amazon Great Indian Festival Sale at 12 am and chose the delivery speed as standard (3-5 working days), but got the email that the product will be delivered by 3rd Oct, 2017.However, I was able to contact and asked them to deliver as early as possible.Received message on 26th Sep, 2017 that it is out for delivery and will be delivered today by Blue Dart.Later on, at evening, the status changed to 'Delivery Attempt Failed, additional info required, contact Amazon'. (Blue Dart asked for Landmark, as per their tracking details).After contacting Amazon and giving them landmark, next day the product got delivered.I asked the delivery person (Blue Dart), why you didn't deliver the product on yesterday? He said, they didn't attempted to deliver on yesterday.So, I am giving ** 0.5 out of 1 ** rating to delivery.Now, back to 'Samsung 100 cm (40 inches) 40M5100 Basic Smart Full HD LED TV (Black)', I made a call to Samsung on 1800-40-7267-864 for installation.The customer care was so polite and gentle.They said, installation will be done by next day.NOTE : There is no installation charges !Next day, Samsung engineer visited and completed the installation.NOTE : You won't get any Wall Mount Bracket or anything instead of table top stand.The Wall Mount will be carried by Samsung engineer with FREE of cost.No need to pay any extra amount !** 1 out of 1 ** rating to Samsung support.Now, when the TV switched on first. It is set to 'Standard Picture Mode' which gives you super bright display and bad picture quality (if you have normal SD set top box). It is Full HD Led TV and have just only PQI 200.Your eyes might strain in default setting.After doing about 1 hour research , I was able to adjust the best picture quality and made SD picture somehow look like High Definition with no eyes strain.I am enclosing the pics of Display Setting for you all, kindly adjust in same manner. (YOU WILL SEE A GREAT DIFFERENCE).Don't use Indian Cinema Mode and Cricket Mode, I think it is useless.Display is so amazing even in PQI 200.** 1 out of 1 ** rating for Display.Talking about sound, it is having 20W speakers with Dolby Digital Plus.Change the sound mode to 'Movie' to get the bass and treble perfect.** 1 out of 1 ** rating for Sound.Lastly, it is having mobile mirror feature and able to connect easily to any smartphone that supports Screen mirror function.No lags, you will get best quality screen mirroring and amazing picture quality ( the default setting has been set to 'Standard Picture Mode' for this function also, don't change it ). This TV have separate settings option for each input attached.NOTE : This TV is not actually a Smart TV, it has basic smart features only.Basic Smart Features are Screen mirroring/Screen Share, TV to mobile audio via Bluetooth and also you can record audio and capture screen (not screen recording in mp4 format) but as a slide show (.plt file format) by attaching external media storage device.** 1 out of 1 ** rating for mirroring and other basic smart features.Overall, I am giving 4.5 out of 5 ratings.Enjoy your new TV !
Worst ever product from Samsung. Highly disappointed with this product and service provided by Samsung. It is not value of money purchase. On the name of basic smart there is nothing except screen sharing and that even have a lot of issues. I was having issue with screen sharing. I raised a complaint with Samsung and they sent many technicians one after another but the none of them even started troubleshooting. All of them come and go and send someone else next time. This thing goes on for a month. They made lame excuses like u need Samsung phone to use screen sharing, Phone should have updated software etc. I wasn't satisfied with these excuses so I asked them for replacement. But these were not even able to arrange a replacement. Finally after a long to and fro I had got it returned and got my money back. Now I have LG smart TV at same price and I am happy with it. Till now didn't have any issue with LG product.
Good tv.1) clarity is good.2) sound is not good. Just ok ok3) Screen mirroring was not working for my mi note 4. If ur moto is screen mirroeing then this is not for u.
Light weight, good picture quality overall good but little bit sound is less & installation by Samsung very poor service
Features:Full HD (Resolution: 1920 x 1080)Refresh Rate: 50 HzConnectivity - Input: 2*HDMI, 1*USB,Audio: 20 W outputDynamic contrast ratio, Wide color enhancer (plus), Film mode,Dolby digital plus, DTS codec, Bluetooth audioMobile to TV - mirroring, DLNA, Bluetooth low energy, Wi-Fi direct, Sound mirroring,Analog clean view, Sports mode, Clean view, Family TV 2.0Local cinema mode, Digital broadcastingAnalog tuner, Audio out (mini jack), Wireless LAN built-inI have been using the TV for almost a month at the time of writing and my review is based on that experience.First, this is not a full smart TV. That is, it does not have any apps installed (like Netflix or YouTube) or allow you to browse the Internet from the TV.This is a basic smart TV and allows you to do the following:You can mirror your mobile, tablet, or laptop to the TV. It means, you can make the TV as a Wireless display for your mobile, tablet, or laptop and display whatever you see on the mobile, tablet, or laptop on the TV.You can direct the audio output of the TV to a Bluetooth device (Bluetooth headphone or Bluetooth speakers).Why should you buy this TVAt my home, the TV is used by my parents to watch regular channels and my kid to watch kid channels. I rarely get a chance to watch anything I want. So, there was no point of buying an Internet-enabled TV.Second, the smart TVs that are available today have some limitations.Choice of Operating System: Popular brands like Samsung and LG use their own OS in Smart TVs (Tizen and WebOS), and Sony uses Android (thankfully).Storage space: Like phones, the smart TVs also require some storage space on the TV. Most budget TVs (in Rs 50-60K) do not offer a lot of space, limiting the number of apps you can install on the TV.Availability of apps: Some apps that you want to install (like Voot or HotStar) may not be available on the TV's OS platform.Crashes and updates: With OS, there is also a possibility of crashing and updating the software when you want to watch something interesting.Price: Smart TVs are more expensive. I noticed a difference of Rs 10000 on the same display size of the same brand.For someone like me who wouldn't be using Internet functionality on a TV too much, buying a full Smart TV made no sense. The only thing in the TV that matters is the TV panel (or the display). You can buy a smart streaming device like Chromecast that can make any TV to a smart TV.After some research, I decided to a buy LG 43LJ523T or Samsung M435100. As I bought it from a store instead of online, I got a good deal on the Samsung one and bought it for Rs 41000. M5100 also has the option of phone mirroring, which LG didn't have.About Basic Smart Features of the TVScreen MirroringYou can mirror your mobile phone and watch the contents of the mobile phone on the TV. I can stream videos from YouTube, play offline videos from the VLC player on phone, show Facebook pics to family, etc. No problem at all. The TV has inbuilt WiDi (WiFi Direct) chip, so you don't need to connect to your home's WiFi to share content.In my Xiaomi phone, I connected to the TV using the wireless display feature, tapped on it, in the TV allowed the phone to connect to the TV, and voila I can share my phone screen.Issues with screen mirroring:Lag: This is an issue with any wireless device. There is a micro-second lag when you perform an action on the phone and it is displayed on the TV. You'll notice more of it while playing a game on phone-TV. So, gaming with mirroring ON is not great.Solution: No solution. This is an issue with wireless devices.WiFi Interference: While mirroring the phone with the TV, if your home's WiFi router is ON, there is more lag and a choppy video experience. Watching internet content (such as YouTube video o) using the home WiFi on the TV is not a great experience at all. Lots of frame-freeze and drop is noticed.Solution: This is a known issue with using multiple Wireless devices using same frequencies. If you are using a 2.5 GHz Wifi router while mirroring, switch off the WiFi router, and the lag and choppy video experience is gone, or switch to a 5GHz WiFi router to avoid any interference. To share internet content, switch off the router and use mobile's data.A better solution is to buy a streaming device like Chromecast to watch Internet content on the TV.Connecting via Laptop: If you are using Windows 8 or 10, you shouldn't face any issue connecting to the TV as Microsoft preinstalled WiDi drivers in the OS. Windows 7 users have to download WiDi drivers from their laptop manufacturer's website.Tip: If you are using a firewall on the laptop, you may need to open some ports and allow the signal from the laptop to connect to TV.USB PlaybackThe good news is the TV supports almost all video formats. I have tested playing MKV, MP4, AVI, X264 and X265 format MKV files, and 10Bit X265 videos. I have tested playing videos from 8 GB FAT pen drive, 32 GB NTFS pen drive, and 1 TB hard disk in various resolutions 480P, 720P, and 1080P. No issues at all. I haven't tested 2K or 4K content.Audio OutputThe TV has 20W speakers, sufficient for clear audio at home. The TV can decode DTS and Dolby codecs (as tested while playing content from USB port) and play audio.Tip: Use the Music preset of the TV for more Bass-rich sound from the TV's speakers.The TV can redirect the sound to a Bluetooth device. I have watched TV while redirecting the sound to the Samsung Bluetooth headset that I got free with the TV. I think you can also redirect the sound to your phone and then use your headphones connected to the phone to listen TV audio. I am yet to try this.The TV does not have an HDMI-out for audio, so it can't send surround audio (5.1 channel or higher) to any other device while playing the content from USB or HDMI. I haven't tested whether the Bluetooth audio output can send surround sound as I don't have a capable device. The TV can share audio through a 3.5 mm jack, so that is 2.1 stereo sound.Display qualityGood. The colors are rich and viewing angle is good too.Tip: Drop the Sharpness to 0 or less than 10 to get better picture quality. Do not increase Brightness beyond 45. Based on the TV's location and the available light, I'd suggest keeping the Backlight at max or 15. Try playing with the Black levels too.SummaryI am not disappointed with TV. It's good and fulfills my requirement. With Chromecast, I can watch Internet content. With Screen mirroring, I can share my phone's content quickly. While everyone is asleep, I can watch content and listen audio on the Bluetooth headset.
