42" is a good size.

Summary: Had it several years now. Still love it. Remote is easy to figure out. I recommend hanging it high on the wall, like they do in hospitals. I sit in my recliner and look up and it's comfy and easy on the eyes.
Summary: At the 40" mark, it's a waste to pick up 1080p resolution unless you're sitting within a couple feet of the screen. This TV is the best looking 720p set I've ever owned, both for SD and HD content.
Summary: This was the largest purchase I have made on-line, it turned out truly wonderful. I am thoroughly happy with the television, it is spectacular. This purchase was recommended by my youngest son in Chicago, yes, I would do this again. I did some research on my own, Amazon.com was the best buy!
Summary: I have this setup with The Samsung 1200 Watt 5.1 Digital Surrond Sound System & the BP2500 Blu-Ray Player. Could not ask for a better setup. I also use the surround sound to play my Xbox 360 as well, brings the games to life in HD!!
Pros: Samsung!! Best Picture on the market for LCD Displays, yes I did my Research. Easy Control Panel, even for End Users. Has AnyNet Technoligy to Auto recognize and configure itself to ANY other Samsung Product via HDMI Cables.
Cons: Takes about 5 seconds to display video when it's powered on. Nothing Else!!
Summary: Only 1 composite input and it tends to make a buzzing sound with the video line. Could just be my old PS2 acting up, but it might be the TV. I don't have any other ancient devices using composite to test. I imagine that with an HDMI connection, this issue is forgotten.
Pros: Great quality at a low price point. Picture quality is great. Controls are great. HD is amazing, standard DVD quality is fantastic, and standard definition broadcasting looks pretty darn good too. Why pay double price for 1080p or 120Hz? The difference is subtle at most. Newegg's price is compara...
Cons: Sound blips out when channel changing as the audio/video sync. Mild inconvenience at its worst; only annoying if you are flipping through the channels all day when nothing is on.
Summary: I had purchased this TV in October of '08 from another vendor. I was researching 720p sets for about month before I purchased. I had planned on using my media center PC with it. I really didn't want a 1080p set because the only true 1080p source these days is blu-ray, which I had no intention of...
Summary: I received my TV in less then 24 hours (no kidding)! Deliveryman was very professional. I helped unload the TV from the truck and was surprised at the care given to the TV while in transit. The TV was secured to the side with blanket padding under the straps.
Pros: The TV was easy to setup, includes a solid swivel stand, and plenty of inputs. As soon as you pick up the remote it screams quality, matches the TV, and has large easy accessible buttons. Don’t let the lesser 720 resolution scare you. The picture is unbelievable and the TV synchronizes perfectly ...
Summary: I've run it about a month now without a glitch. Set up was a snap. Its light enough that one person can manage it alone (roughly 50 pounds), although they recommend two people for handling/lifting it, etc.
Pros: Great machine. Attached it as a 40" monitor to my single processor, wimpy graphics card, ancient (5 yrs old) computer and it was immediately recognized. My LGA 20" flat panel rescales to a small portion of the screen but the Samsung lets you use the entire screen. Nice for us old and blind folks....
Cons: Even though prices have recently dropped substantially, $800 is still a huge chunk of change. Some of the buttons/ports are hidden on the side of the monitor, so you have to look closely for them. Not much of a con. I haven't used the remote for anything since I run everything through my computer...
