Summary: I know televisions fairly well and am extremely picky about my electronics. I got a 46" for $400. So, expectations were tempered. At 60 Hz, they were even more tempered. This television blew me away.
Summary: I don't care about attaching an external sound system, so this TV is great. I knew 40" was going to be a big TV, but I didn't have a very good grasp on exactly how large that is. I was really pleased when I took it out of the box.
Summary: I ordered this for a spare bedroom and it worked out perfectly. The picture is great , the sound is perfect for films and tv. Best of all is the low price. This TV did not sacrifice anything to achieve the lower price.
Samsung puts out superior products. I would buy Samsung again.

Summary: This TV is wonderful. The picture is superior, the sound is great and hooking it up to my components was easy. It is like having a little movie theatre right in my own livingroom. I am very happy with my purchase.
