The Samsung UN40D5003 is an entry-level 40" LED-backlit 1080p LCD HDTV similar to the 22" Samsung UN22D5003. The UN40D5003 sports a couple of notable improvements over the UN22D5003, aside from its larger screen size, namely: more powerful 10-watt stereo speakers (rather than 5 watts) and a 30,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (as opposed to the UN22D5003's 20,000:1). Otherwise, the two TVs sport the same basic features, including Wide Colour Enhancer Plus and Connect Share JPEG capability.

The UN40D5003's 30,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio uses localized backlight dimming to improve its static contrast ratio, providing deeper blacks and brighter whites for a more realistic picture. Its Wide Colour Enhancer Plus technology provides the UN40D5003 with a wider colour palette than typical HDTVs, allowing it to provide more accurate colour reproduction for a more life-like picture. Meanwhile, the UN40D5003's Connect Share JPEG feature allows it to directly view JPEG image files from any USB flash storage device.
