First Impression: The Samsung UN24H4000 24-Inch 720p LED TV

0

I purchased the The Samsung UN24H4000 24-Inch TV to serve as test TV for trying out streaming media devices before cutting the cable tv cord, and installing a streaming media device like the Amazon Fire TV Stick on the main residence tv.

When researching potential tvs to purchase, my two primary requirements were: I wanted it to be relatively inexpensive, and  have the connections necessary for streaming media.

The Samsung UN24H4000 satisfied those requirements, so, in late 2017, I  purchased the Samsung UN24H4000 24-Inch 720p LED TV (2014 Model) along with the Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote | Streaming Media Player from Amazon.com.

When the tv arrived, after attaching the stand and turning on the tv, I left all of the tv picture settings at the default settings and inserted the Amazon Fire TV Stick in one of the two HDMI inputs, and followed the setup instructions.

The Amazon Fire TV Stick worked fine, and for reasons that I will detail in an upcoming post, I also purchased a Roku Streaming Stick shortly thereafter that now occupies the  second HDMI input.

I’ve now had the Samsung UN24H4000 24-Inch TV for 3 months and I have no complaints.  I think the picture quality is great, and other than experimenting with the different picture and tv settings via the remote, I’ve made no permanent changes to the default settings.

One minor thing I would note is, when you turn the tv on, a small box briefly appears in upper left-hand corner with the time and screen dimensions.  It only appears for maybe a half second, but I have not been able to locate the setting to stop it.  Then again, it hasn’t bothered me enough to spend much time looking. If I find out how to disable it, I will address it in the post discussion.

My impression so far is that I would not hesitate to purchase this tv again!
