Summary: I purchased this TV in November of 2008. It was a decent TV up until the beginning of 2012. It is used frequently I must admit. Around January/February, it start acting funny when trying to turn it on. It would sit and turn itself on and off repeatedly for a couple of minutes before coming on. Later in the year The picture would occasionally split in the middle, showing the lower half of the picture up top and the upper half on the bottom.
Summary: I bought my beautiful Samsung TV three years ago in 2008. It was everything other reviews raved about...until this summer. The TV started making a clicking noise when I tried to turn it on. Sometimes, it would take five minutes before the TV actually produced a picture. Calling Samung to inform them of this problem, I was told that yes, this is a defect in specific models produced between a six month period.
Summary: Bought in 2008 and it's already about to die after only a few years. (Power cycling due to bad capacitors). This is a known issue and Samsung refuses to cover this Manufacturer's defect out of warranty. Customer Service is terrible and I will never buy a Samsung product again.
Summary: About a year and a half after I received my Samsung TV it started cycling on and off repeatedly. It had just gone past the one year warranty and so a call to Samsung service resulted in two visits by a technician and an additional $350 to replace the mother board and power supply, not to mention two lost work days. Now, a year later the TV has started doing the same thing again.
Brilliant picture, but shotty craftsmanship, bad customer service!

Summary: I've had the unit for about 2.5 years, and I have to say the picture is beautiful. However, a bit after the two year mark, half of the screen started ghosting, but would eventually snap into place after a few minutes. As time wore on, the intreval for it to "snap in" took longer and longer, up to a half hour. Sometimes if we banged the frame it would help. Amazing that we had to resort that that old technique!
Summary: I ordered this set for my family last Christmas of 2007 and set it up one evening with my sister while the folks were out. When they came home that night - boom! Their measly old 19" CRT had vanished and in it's place was just a blackness, filling the main cavity of our entertainment cabinet - 40 inches, to be exact. They were quite surprised, as you would imagine.
Summary: This TV is excellent so far. Owned for 3 days. I was looking at the 4061 since I liked all these features then I was about to order the 4061 for 1299.00 on Amazon and then noticed the 4069 for only $200 more on Amazon (1499.00). Went to Best Buy to compare and see in person before ordering and I was sold. This is a newer model and newer technology for just a little more. I'm glad I decided to get this model instead.
Summary: I did a lot of research on LCD TV's. My first conclusion was that Samsung was the best quality and value. My second conclusion were that I wanted the following pre-requisites: 40", 1080, 3 HDMI inputs, Samsung's clear panel (some models don't have it), at least 15k dynamic contract and a slick stylish look. So I tracked the 4065 price on Amazon to get that....
Had Preferred 4069 For Its Matte Finish, Now Its Technology Is A Little Dated . . .
25 July 2008
Summary: After a long search I had settled on the 40 inch 120hz LNT4069. Then I started reading about the improvements in the LN40A650 and the LN40A750 . . . offering 50,000:1 contrast ratio vs 20,000:1 for the 4069 and the newer, lower 4ms response time compared to the 8ms of last years model. But, I still wanted the 4069 because it offered a matte finish for the screen, and several reviewers wrote in complaining and regretting their 'glossy screen' purchase.
Summary: I had to return this TV due to defective pixels in the bottom-right corner of the screen. I requested a refund and bought another TV at a retail store. I didn't want to wait another 2-3 weeks for a replacement, since I had already given away my old TV. I'm disappointed that I had to settle for a different TV. I blame Samsung and award them one star for poor quality control. If the technology isn't reliable, then they shouldn't sell it.
