Excerpt: I went out and exchanged my Samsung LNT4042H for this TV yesterday and couldn't be happier.While the 720p was cheaper, the picture on it was no where near as nice as on the 4065! I am really pleased with this television so far. I will update after I have a good chance to spend some time with it.
Excerpt: Bought this a couple years ago to replace a 32" Sony Wega (that thing weighed a TON!), and I couldn't have been happier. I chose this after researching quite a bit. It was rated very highly on CNET, and I liked it the picture much better than comparably priced Sonys at the time. And I had a specific size constraint...there were only about 5 TVs in the 40" category that would fit in the cabinet space I had. Overall, a fantastic TV.
Summary: My Samsung LNT4065f has conked out after 24 months. My problem is the same as many of those who have posted on this forum and other forums. First, the TV cycled on and off and would show pink dots on top of the picture. A few days later, it gives a solid screen of lines. This is not what I would expect from a TV that I paid over a thousand bucks for. I'm calling Samsung to fix this.
Summary: This TV did not last more than two years. started to have problems powering up. When I checked online I found out on a tv forum that Samsung has been using very poor quality capacitors in there Tvs. the problem was that Samsung used35v 1000uf capacitor that ended getting bad within the first two years and that those need to be changed with better quality capacitors with higher voltage rating and that can cost hundreds of Dollars unless you know how to replace them your...
Summary: The TV was delivered in a hurry, not the so-called "white glove" that it is made out to be. The TV was "broken" out of the box - it had sound but no picture. It was later determined, after many tries, by the Samsung Technical Support that it needed to be returned. We were charged for $42 for return by Amazon for no fault of our own.
Summary: I did 100 hours of research before finally picking this tv. i researched plasma vs lcd first to narrow down the choices. we use tivo a lot and also play wii and i didnt want burn in...also i wanted less energy usage and a lighter tv for wall mounting. also lcds historically last longer than plasmas and i dont plan on upgrading anytime soon. also were deciding between a 40 or 46 inch.
Summary: I purchased the Samsung LNT4065F 40" 1080p LCD HDTV about a month ago after months of research and trips to BB, CC, Tweeter, etc. First, let me thank all the others who rated this LCD and the other comparable Samsungs and Sonys - I learned much more from these postings and Consumer Reports than I did from the store salespeople. I somewhat limited my search to Sony and Samsung due primarily to my bias towards those brands after years of using their TVs.
Summary: It's been now three weeks since I started using this Samsung TV, and am thoroughly pleased with it. I had recently purchased a PS3 to dub as a hi-def gaming and blu-ray player, and watching anything from that system on my two-year old 22" CRT would not do it justice. After about a week of research, a couple of visits to BestBuy for live demonstrations and questions, I decided to get more bang for the buck by chosing Samsung LCD over Sony.
Great picture, poor HDMI, terrible customer service

Summary: BE CAREFUL! First of all, I bought this from Amazon and I have no complaints...would do it again in a heart beat (Order, price, delivery, etc were great)! The 4065 LCD does have a great picture, however, the HDMI has been an issue for me. I have a Sanyo Xacti HD2 camcorder and wanted to show my video via the HDMI output to my new Samsung 4065. Well, the video looked great, but no sound!
