Review: Samsung UE32K5100 Joiiii Full HD LED TV with Freeview HD

Guest blog by Carlton.

Looking for a fabulous TV screen at a great price? Then relax – your search is over! You need look no further than the Samsung UE32K5100 – affectionately known as the Joiiii.

I am very impressed by this product. This rather nifty Samsung TV offers a lot for the money from the off; it is a full HD panel, 1080p & has a picture quality achieving 200 PQI, giving you sharp, vibrant images.

It offers a screen refresh rate of 200Hz to keep up with faster movement and by using Samsung’s Digital Clean View technology, the panel analyses the quality of the signal input to improve the viewing experience delivering superb picture quality. Samsung state that that this TV offers vivid details and bright colours, and they are not wrong. Dynamic visuals with the Joiiii’s noise reducing and colour-and-contrast enhancing technology refine every picture, so you aren’t just watching a movie – you’ll feel like you’re part of it, too.

From unboxing this TV it’s really easy to setup. Everything you need is there, including batteries for the remote too – a minor detail that put a smile on my face. The legs are separate and require some simple self-assembly, clicking easily into place with not a lot of effort required.


The auto tuning & basic set up of the TV is easy to navigate and takes around 3-4 minutes to complete the tuning and after this it’s ready to go. If you wish to adjust the picture or sound settings a single push on the menu button gets you straight there, simply select sound or picture settings to make any adjustment and it’s really well laid out for ease of use.

Another good partner for this TV would definitely be a Sky box as the Joiiii is full HD 1080p. Connecting via an HDMI cable would give you the best picture source and recording abilities for another channel / programme whilst watching another… and even set up series links to get the whole lot “booked in” so not to miss a episode. As authorised agents for Sky we can arrange installation dates from our stores for both TV and broadband packages (and have some Sky deals that are so good that we can’t even talk about them!)

Back to the TV and once it’s set up, I’m pleased to see that it looks the part. It has a sophisticated and sleek design with chrome feet at either end. These chrome feet are also adjustable legs making it adaptable to fit anywhere in the home. It comes with the usual Samsung super thin bezel which gives you more screen size for the size of the TV again making this adaptable to fit around the home and with 32” and 40” models available they can be both the spare room TV or main entertainment piece.


Since modern TV’s have become ever slimmer there is less space to put in huge speakers so the sound quality doesn’t always match the great picture so many people choose to add a soundbar or soundbase. We offer superb soundbars from Samsung, such as the HWJ250, which would be a perfect partner for this TV, with its sleek appearance. Now, soundbars do really add something to your viewing and enjoyment with many TVs but at least with the Joiiii you will already get a unique front firing speaker and tweeters 10w+10w Dolby digital which throw sound out into the room, rather than some TVs which have rear firing speakers. The sound from the speakers in this TV is a really present surprise for the modern TV standards and gives a really soft and warm tone. The Joiiii is perfect for all the family, young and old alike, as it gives you clearer images and more audible sound, so all viewers can see and hear equally well.

On the topic of sound have you ever wanted the ability to send your own music direct to the TV? It’s a really popular feature we get asked about a lot in our stores and this Samsung can do that. The Joiiii allows you to easily connect your smartphone, using Bluetooth. Just press play on your favourite track and send to the sets’ speakers.

The Joiiii offers a lot more than meets the eye and when looking for a new TV the features explained would be more than enough to make it a great choice. But just when you think it couldn’t get any smarter, it really can, as this TV protects itself against dust, insects and even humidity. It also has inbuilt protection that covers you from lightning damage, electrical blackouts and even viruses from pesky, unwanted files. How is that for 21st century stuff? Not only a TV that is packed full of features but one that looks after itself, too!
