Summary: I didn't buy this TV from Amazon, I bought it locally, but since it's still being sold I wanted to put in my 2 cents worth. From a video standpoint, the picture is pretty good, I have no complaints there. The sound however is mediocre at best.
Summary: The first one I received was broken. I got it all set up, turned it on and the screen was damaged. Newegg sent me a prepaid shipping label and from the time I dropped the TV off at UPS to the time I received the new one was less than a week.
Pros: Great TV. Great picture, the volume goes very loud, my roommates play xbox on it, awesome for watching the football games. Solid TV, great price.
Summary: I have had good luck in the past with refurbished products, but after this experience I will stick to new TV's.
Pros: Nice TV at a good price.
Cons: First one arrived damaged in shipping and back cover was scratched up quite a bit. The second one arrived fine, was in good physical condition and worked for about a week then developed a major problem - blurry screen and green tint on the whole picture. I called Samsung support, and they are com...
Summary: Produces a little bit of heat since it isn't LED backlit. but not bad.
Pros: Sports, movies, everything looks good on this TV. Its black levels aren't on par with plasma, but are extremely good. 40" is a very good size to get sharp, blur-free sports action, and this TV shines. Backlighting control and fine-tuning capabilities make this the absolute best $300 TV ever.
Cons: None. If it cost $200 more, I might whine a bit about true contrast ratio, but I have to look really hard to notice any shortcoming.
Summary: I replaced a 7 year old 37 inch flat screen(bedroom TV) that was on sale at Newegg for $899.00 back then. This $299.00 fac referb looked new. WOW, what a difference in in price and quaility.This is not my main TV, rather a replacement for a bedroom. For this it is Awesome.
Pros: Great TV, Awesome picture, average sound. Easy setup, name brand, lowest price I have ever seen for a 40 inch,HD, 1080p, flat screen LCD, Ordered Sunday, UPS has at my door Tuesday morning/Free Shipping. This is my 5th Flat screen I've ordered from Newegg, I have been buying for Newegg for 12 yea...
Cons: limited input/ output connections for DVDs, Old VCRs ect. TV has 2 hdmi, 1 composite(red,white,green,blue,red) and a cable input
Summary: Used for gaming and TV Great picture Hooked up sound (has good sound out of box) Shop around and walmart (out of stock ) amazon had the same price with quicker delievery Is top heavy made clamps to hold it from tipping over (this is a problem with flat screens)
