More on Samsung UN32EH5300 – LED-LCD – 32-Inch – Full HD – SmartTV and Wi-Fi

Samsung UN32EH5300 is the first TV I reviewed on my site. You can check out the complete review here: Samsung UN32EH5300 Review – Smart TV & Built-in Wi-Fi on a Budget. There’s really not much to say. It’s Samsung’s 2012 upper entry model to have Smart TV and Wi-Fi. Not sure how much longer this TV will be around, though.

The infobox with the tabs below will hopefully help you find the information you’re looking for. I’ve tried to gather all useful information on this Samsung 2012 TV model. Naturally, I will add more, especially in the “Q and A” section. If you have any questions, let me know in the comments section below. Thanks!

Samsung UN32EH5300 Review – Smart TV & Built-in Wi-Fi on a Budget

Can I play back video via USB, and if so which video formats are supported?

Yes, you can hook up your USB pen drive or hard drive to one of the two USB 2.0 connectors. You then have to select USB after you click SOURCE on your TV remote. The following file extensions are supported:

  • .avi, .mkv, .asf, .wmv, .mp4, .3gp, .vro, .mpg, .mpeg, .ts, .tp, .trp, .mov, .flv (that’s Adobe Flash), .vob, .svi, .m2ts, .mts, .divx, .webm

Of course, playback depends what codecs were used for the video encoding. This TV supports the following codecs:

  • DivX 3.11/4.x/5x/6x
  • MPEG4 SP/ASP
  • H.264 BP/MP/HP
  • Motion JPEG
  • Windows Media Video v9
  • MPEG2/MPEG1
  • VP6, VP8

Subtitles in the popular formats .srt and .sub are also supported.

Can I wall mount it and if yes what do I need?

Yes, you can. Make sure you get a VESA 200 wall mount, that is 200 millimeters horizontal by 200 millimeters vertical. Samsung’s online info with VESA 400 is incorrect, but they do have it correct for the 2013 successor model – the UN32F5500 – which is VESA 200 too.

A popular wall mount the Mount-it! LCD TV Wall Mount Bracket available for a very decent price on Amazon. A simple to follow instruction manual is included, of course.

Do I need a Wi-Fi USB dongle to access Wi-Fi with this TV?

No, Wi-Fi is built-in. You don’t have buy anything extra.

How do I connect to devices like Blu-Ray players, Home Theaters? Do I get a cable for that?

When working in large TV stores this year I often got asked: Do I have to buy a cable to hook this up to my Hi-Fi setup? Yes, because manufacturers do not include video or audio connection cables, the analog type or modern HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) cables. There’s a reason for that: they simply cannot know your setup so including cables that you’ll never need would be a big waste.

The easiest way to connect everything is via HDMI. You have three HDMI connectors. Today’s soundbars, home theaters, Blu-Ray players, and game consoles should all come with HDMI. If you’re not sure just check at the back of your device.

If you have an older analog setup, you could use Composite In. If you want audio in, there’s a PC Audio Input (Mini Jack) and a DVI In Audio In Jack.

For audio output you have an optical digital audio connector and a Audio Out Mini Jack, usually called the 3.5mm headphones jack or “stereo mini”. You can easily get a Stereo mini-to-RCA adapter cable, so you can hook it up to older Hi-Fi sets.

I try to use Smart Hub but I get a strange popup saying “ERROR_MODEL_BIND.” What can I do?

Using Smart Hub apps means going through Samsung Smart Hub servers. If you get this message it means their servers are having a problem. I know, the error message could be more meaningful, but that’s just the way it is.

There’s more information on this blog: http://errormodelbind.blogspot.ch/

If this error comes up frequently, it’s best to go to popular forums like the Samsung forum on CNET: http://forums.cnet.com/samsung-forum/ or AV Forums: http://www.avforums.com/.

I want to use this TV for gaming. I’ve heard “input lag” is important? Do you know it for this model?

According to displaylag.com’s database the input lag for this model is classified as great with 26 milliseconds. Please not that it’s for the 40-inch model, but it should be the same for the 32-inch version.
