Matte Screen is Key
Meathead 71, Amazon

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. I don't know if they make many models any more with a matte screen, but I would highly recommend it. Watched half of the superbowl on the TV and noticed no streaking or blurring of motion of any kind.
Summary: After getting the TV set up and figuring out how to use it, we enjoyed 2 nights of watching high def tv, then the screen went dark. The company I was directed to for service could not come for a week. We decided to haul it ourselves to another authorized service center. We had to pick it up and then set it up again. It was a bit discouraging, hope it's not the beginning of a trend. It looks great....for today...
Summary: This is out third LCD tv from Samsung that we ordered and we are very happy with it. We love the sleek black design and easy to swivel stand. Putting it together was a breeze and it was working within 10 minutes. We have a set in Samsung's Touch of Red line which has a constant blue light under the center of the tv that could be annoying - this set has the same blue light when it first turns on and off and that's it. Yeah.
Summary: i just replaced a new 32" samsung with this 40" model, wanted the larger screen size. the picture is excellent (with a little tweaking); clear, sharp, bright. my only regret...this model (unlike the 32") has no headphone out, so i can not use my powered speakers AND control volume/muting. the internal speakers are, as usual, the weak link (again, made better with some serious tweaking). price just went up on this, but worth it.
Summary: I've had this tv for about a month now and it's great. It has superb clarity and the colors are vibrant. Definitely on par with or better than Sony and LG, especially for the price. My only negative comment is the sound. Maybe I'm going deaf or my space is too large, but I have to turn the volume up much higher than I'm used to...I've added my Bose speakers out of fear of busting the tv's. Overall, great tv!
Great HD picture and great service from Crutchfield

Summary: First I want to say how impressed I am with Crutchfield. When I purchased this unit through Amazon I really didn't pay much attention to who the actual seller was since it received the standard free shipping. I purchased this on a Saturday morning. With in 2 hours I received a phone call from Crutchfield thanking me for my purchase and explaining how the unit would be shipped, etc.
Summary: This is a great TV. The only thing that I found disappointing is the particular model I purchased did not come with the side inputs for hooking up my digital camera or camcorder etc. Getting to the back of the TV is an inconvenience and it also results in less input options. It's my first flat screen so I wasn't aware that this would be an issue.
Summary: I waited a few months after purchasing this tv, before attempting a review. MY experiences/opinions are (scale of 1-10, 10 being the best): Handling, ability to move to desired location: 10 ... light, easy for 1 person to move,maneuver, install on stand Easiness to initially setup/get useful asap: 10 ... You really do NOT need the directions, but they are excellent Connections amount,availability, setup: 10 ... I have cable, a PS3, and Xbox360, dvd ...
Summary: I bought this tv to replace a 22" Vizio, it is my second HDTV. I just want to say that this TV has risen to all my needs. While it is only 60hz, the motion blur is not terribly visible. The screen has great color and the contrast is just incredible. I used a calibration disk on it and it looks awesome. If you are looking for a great 40" tv for less $, buy this one. It does not disapoint. The only reason I gave this tv 4 stars is because nothing is perfect.
Summary: I just purchased a Samsung flat sccreen 1080 model LN40B530 40" this set is an excellent buy for its price range. i am happy with its picture and sound. I have it connected to and old Kenwood surround system and it made it this old system sound like it was new.
