Summary: After doing significant research I purchased this TV in 8/2009 and paid over $700.00. Until just recently TV was working fine and I never had any concerns or issues with TV. Now I have a ghost picture and can't believe that TV doesn't work after just five years of normal viewing.
Summary: Samsung has always had quality products, this TV included. If you are looking for a TV that works well and looks great, look no further. I and my daughter have had Samsungs for years with literally no issues. If you do your homework, you'll find that for LCDs this TV is a good choice.
Summary: I purchased this TV a year ago and it is running great. The picture is excellent. It sounds like one of the internal speakers is starting to crack, but I am getting ready to set up a home theatre system anyway. I recommend this product to anyone looking for great quality at a reasonable price.
Summary: We were very happy with the quality of the picture when we first got the TV. I think this is why this model gets such great reviews - people tend to write them right after they get the product. However, our TV stopped working after less than five months.
Summary: This is the second Samsung LCD TV that I have purchased from Amazon vendor themselves and from ordering, shipping, arrival there has never been a hiccup. I previous had the Samsung LN46A550 so this was a bit smaller being a LN40B530 but nothing else compromised!
Summary: TV was purchased less than 6 months ago. Was a "secondary" TV and was probably used a total of less than 50-75 hours. Yesterday morning started smelling a nasty electrical fire kind of a smell. TV was still working while I ran around trying to figure out where the smell was originating.
Excerpt: 1st place, the overall picture of this LCD is great, but there are problems 1) the viewing angle is terrible! the search for the dead is good, but move slightly left or right and the picture begins to wash the colors and strange things happen in the brightness and contrast. 2) there …
Summary: This TV is just awesome and I love every aspect of it. First of all, the exterior design is dark, sleek and really attractive, it mainly continues with the line of Samsung designs we've grown to love.
Summary: I also have a Samsung 58PN560 to compare to, so..... The color is great out of the box, whereas i fiddled with the plasma a lot more. The matte screen does a great job of limiting reflections in a sunny room with a big picture window.
