Samsung LE-40A656: One of the best 40" Televisions - Samsung LE40A656
19 January 2010
Summary: The selling point for this Samsung has to be the unique look that it has. A red 'tint' around the frame of the TV is subtle & leaves this TV with something that other TV's can't offer & that's beauty even when switched off. It sits onto an swivelling oval stand & around the back you can easily hide away your cable using the provided cable tidy. All attached & ready out of the box. Switched on & this TV gets even better.
Pros: Looks, HD 1080p, Solid SD picture & plenty of connectivity options.
Cons: Takes a while to turn on (a few noticeable seconds) & poor sound quality.
Samsung LE-40A656: A Fantastic TV from Samsung which truly makes them a market ...
28 October 2009
Summary: This is the TV with which Samsung really began to compete on quality with the likes of Sony and Panasonic. For its price and quality this TV was an easy choice to become the centre of my home cinema set-up and it hasnt failed to live up. This TV is also frequently reviewed as being better and cheaper than its Sony and Panasonic rivals and it easily lives up to its promise. Appearance: Wonderfully crisp edges on the well sized/proportioned frame.
Pros: Fantastic build, brilliant appearance, top quality picture and audio, great connectivity
Cons: Lack of buttons on the TV itself, annoying to change inputs
what is the difference between this and the LE40A656A ?
2 February 2009
Summary: I bought the LE40A656A a few months ago and can't see any difference between my TV and this one considering the additional cost. Can someone please explain what you get for the extra cost as I find my LE40A656A superb except for the sound which is no more than average.
Excerpt: Having been blinded by the amount of TV`s currently available, we recently went for this model and have no regrets at all. Was always worried that picture at home would not match that on store demo tapes, but no problems on Sky or Digital TV (Free view built in) and picture quality fantastic. Awaiting delivery of home cinema system now.
Summary: Bottom line is nothing else even comes close. Everyone else is saying it's an excellent picture and I really feel they're understating it. I'd suggest you look at it in a store like i did and compare it others-it's unbelievable. Sound sucks pretty bad, like you have it under your pillow. I have my cable box hooked up directly to my surround system and it totally bypasses the tv, and it sounds like God.
Summary: Q. In one word, summerise the quality of the product and level of service recieved. A. "SuperAwesome" Honestly, I've been looking dilligently at the LCD/Plasma market for quite some time and I can say, with some confidence that this is well worth anyone's hard earned cash Delivery of the unit was bang on time and in pristine condition. The unit is very light by comparison to other LCD/Plasma TV's only 35kg.
Summary: I have owned this Samsung TV for three months upgrading from a 32" 720p LCD TV. The TV looks amazing with the dark red crystal surround.The picture quality continues to amaze me with absolute clarity and definition.I have no hesitation in saying that it is one of the best looking TV's available and the quality is every bit as good as the looks.I can thoroughly recommend it.
Summary: I did a lot of research on the web before buying this LCD TV, my first HD TV by the way. I ended up with 3 possible choice for a full hd tv: - 42in plasma from Panasonic TH42PZ80B. Amazing picture, no 100 Hz technology, high power consumption(~400 W), and reasonable price tag. - 40in lcd from Sony KDL40W4000. Amazing picture, no 100 Hz technology, low power consumption (~200 W), higher price tag. - 40in lcd from Samsung LE40A656A.
Summary: Was in the market for a new LCD and it came down to this and a Sony 40W4000. Now Sony normally gets the nod based on past purchases and its always been my fav TV brand. However on paper the Samsung looked strong, particularly with the 100hz feature, for this, on a Sony you'll pay a lot more. In store the Sonys a cracking piece of kit but side by side the Samsung looks so much slicker, the slimmer, rounded bezel and the rose tint really work. So its now sat in my lounge.
Summary: [Review of Model no. LE40A656A1FXXU.] Having owned an excellent Samsung 32" (LE32N73BDX) for the past year or so, I decided to upgrade my old tube TV to this 1080p model. So far I have very positive first impressions of my new machine. Right out the box, the elegant ebony and red-tinted design hits you: the cliché about hi-def TVs adding style to any living room has never been more true than here.
