The Samsung UN24H4000 is a 24-inch LED flat screen TV. It is 1.9 inches thick without its stand and weighs 8.6 pounds. This Samsung model is an entry-level slim LED TV. Its connectivity options includes two HDMI ports, a USB port, a composite input, a digital audio output and a headphone jack. There is also a Jog Stick at the back, and this provides manual control if you cannot find the included remote control. The remote control itself is pretty basic but functional. Its standout feature is a button for illuminating the remote, and this is useful while using the remote in a dark room.
This slim TV has an edge-lit LED LCD panel. Placing its LED backlight at the edges helps keep the TV slim. The TV has a pair of downward-facing speakers with a combined power of 6 watts. While the speakers are not especially powerful, their sound is enhanced with Dolby Digital Plus and DTS Studio Sound.
Although the UN24H4000 is not a smart TV, you can connect set top boxes, streaming boxes, DVD and Blu-ray players, or PCs to it via the two HDMI ports. The USB port also accepts flash drives, and you can play music, watch movies and view photos stored on a USB drive directly on the TV. However, the port selection on this slim TV is rather sparse. You can easily find slimmer TVs with more HDMI and USB ports. Furthermore, all the ports on this TV are rear facing. With no side panel, mounting this TV on the wall will block access to all of its ports.
With a native resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels ??? 720p ??? the Samsung UN24H4000 has the lowest possible resolution for HDTVs. However, a 1080p or 4K display on a 24-inch TV will barely look better. To improve its picture quality, Samsung included a color rendering engine called Wide Color Enhancer Plus. In addition, a built-in eco sensor makes this slim TV energy efficient by smartly adjusting its brightness according to the intensity of the ambient light. While this flat-screen TV has a native refresh rate of 60GHz, it can keep up with high-speed action by upping the refresh rate thanks to a feature known as Clear Motion Rate 120. However, even with this, it is unlikely that it will render the fast action of sport broadcasts and action movies as well as TVs with native refresh rates of 120GHz or higher.
The Samsung UN24H4000 is a slim, lightweight TV with an edge-lit LED LCD display. However, its resolution tops out at 720p, and its speakers are underpowered even for a slim TV.
