Nice TV for a while...

MB 007, Amazon
23 October 2009
  • Summary: I bought this television in early 2006 when I moved into my new home. I needed to get rid of my tube HDTV due to space constraints, and I needed a panel to mount above the fire place. I spent a very large amount of time doing homework on the specifications, and narrowed my search based on price and my requirements (1080p, LCD, etc), and arrived at either the Sony XBR or the Samsung LNS4695d.

Best Bang For Your Buck

C. Cook, Amazon
13 June 2008
  • Summary: Got this TV awhile back and it is an outstanding TV for the price. The picture is crystal clear. Very good features for a TV in this price range. The sound really stands out with rich bass and enveloping surround effects. I have both an XBox 360 and a Playstation 3 running on full 1080p and they look incredible! Blu-Ray HD movies playing on the PS3 look amazing on this TV's 1080p resolution.

Stand broke

RosieAndMe, Amazon
31 January 2008
  • Summary: The neck of my Samsung LN-S4695D supplied TV stand broke after 8 months and the 75 pound TV came crashing to the floor. Others have reported the same problem, the neck is all plastic and cannot support the weight of the TV. I have to give their service 5 stars they replaced the TV with a brand new LN-T4661F which has a stronger neck and stand.

Picture Great / Warranty Service Unacceptable

C2 "C2", Amazon
5 December 2007
  • Summary: We purchased the set in December 2007. Excellent picture and sound quality. By March, light colors appeared speckled and grainy. By June, after warming up for 30-45 minutes, the picture was completely distorted. We called for service on September 29. The in-home tech arrived on November 7 with a replacement board. He tested the set in front of my wife, and it worked (while cool). Within an hour, my wife turned the TV back on.... no LCD at all.

UNBELIEVABLE TV

I BOUGHT ONE, Amazon
15 July 2007
  • Summary: I love electronics and study them hard before purchasing. Samsung and Sony have by far the absolute best pictures on the market and the fewest complaints. I bought this Samsung and it does not disappoint. It has a swivel on it so you can turn the TV in any direction. The colors are spectacular. You will not be disappointed. It's in the middle of the road for TV prices.

Excellent bang for the buck

Axol, Amazon
6 June 2007
  • Summary: I've had this TV for about 4 months now and I love it. Like most people I was trying to decide between the Sony XBR, Sharp Aquos, and this Samsung. I went with the Samsung because while the Sony picture was slightly better when compared side by side at the store it was not $1,000 better. Also I really like the piano black case and stand. It's very elegant and sleek. I'm not a gamer so I have no experience with that.

Great Picture

New Tooth "Bennett", Amazon
9 May 2007
  • Summary: We purchased the TV to fit in a framed area above the fireplace and it slid right in with a quarter inch space all around. After getting the HD box delivered from our cable company we were really amazed at the clarity of the picture,the sound without home theater is quite good. I may add theater sound later. The TV was delivered on time, they had said about a week and it may have been a day early.

Happy with this TV

Seany B. "Football fan", Amazon
7 May 2007
  • Summary: The televeision itself is awesome! No complaints with the TV. Word to the wise- make sure you know exactly what HD programming is available in your area before you make the investment. We don't get any HD for ABC, NBC, CBS or FOX. Regular definition looks terrible on this TV because it is so big. We spent a lot of time researching this TV. Of all the 1080p LCD TVs, we felt the Samsung was the best- just barely edging out the Sony Bravia.

Great Set

C. Longo, Amazon
23 April 2007
  • Summary: I have been dragging my heels entering the HDTV era for years now. I sat by while my early adopter friends bought their first HD sets, waiting for HD to reach "prime time" status. Finally, the combination of 1) 1080p 2) HDMI 3) lower prices across the board are what ultimately drove towards me to getting my first HD set. I researched models for months before buying.

Samsung LCD TV purchase

R. Alejandre "hooked-on-HD", Amazon
2 April 2007
  • Summary: This was my first purchase of a major electronic product from Amazon. The experience was positive. I did my homework in researching product characteristics and competition prices and found Amazon to offer the best deal on this HD TV. Delivery was prompt, although initially it was difficult to track the item due to misinformation about which carrier was actually shipping the television.
