Exterior design and connectivity of the Samsung UE22K5000

A simple but well-balanced TV

Our little Samsung UE22K5000 features a design simple but elegant, without flaunting noble materials or aesthetic stridencies. Has a 9mm thick outer frame in black plastic, whose lower edge is finished in gray with a finish imitating aluminum that gives it a quite distinguished touch. In the center of this frame, we can also find the Samsung logo in white, as well as a small protrusion on its right end that houses the IR receiver for its remote control. This receiver, as it is not integrated within the frame itself, breaks the aesthetics a bit, although surely you will not soon notice that it is there.

To top it off, it has a simple matching rectangular stand also in black, which although it is not excessively robust or heavy, more than fulfills its function given the size and low weight of this Samsung.

Yes, it has the professional, but little used, input of Component video Y / Pb / Pr, being able to use the Y connector as a composite video input, as well as a optical digital audio output and a headphone jack, the usual CI slot or common interface and an RGB input of Scart type 0 scart (although a VGA input would have been more useful for use as a monitor). Does not count neither our model with integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, as well as a specific connector or internal decoding for satellite broadcasts (DVB-S).

Image quality and features in general

When it comes to image quality, the UE22K5000 has a panel 1920 x 1080 Full HD pixels and LED backlighting. It is not an advanced IPS or Oled panel, but it is that for the price of this model and the range in which we operate, which is the Samsung Series 5, you cannot ask for more. That does not mean that the image quality is bad, on the contrary, we are facing a more than decisive television that has a good refresh rate of 200 Hz and some image improvements such as the processor HyperReal Engine and technology Wide Color Enhancer from Samsung for enhancing colors and details. Yes, we have missed including the new HEVC coding standard in this model to be able to enjoy high-quality FHD broadcasts and that are included in other similar Philips models for example; yes, for a little more price than this model.

Perhaps the weakest section is the sound, since the Samsung UE22K5000 only has one output power of 2 x 3W (RMS yes), which although they will not be able to sound a large room, are more than enough for the daily use to which it is intended. Of course, it has integrated codecs to reproduce Dolby Digital Plus or DTS 5.1 sound, so we can make use of its digital optical output to connect it to an external amplifier or Home Cinema.

Finally say that it is a model with a energy class A With a maximum consumption of 38W and a total weight of only 3.1 kilos, base included, being easily installed on a wall using any VESA mount.
