Summary: The TV is a nice unit, except that it has a 'birth defect'. Within 18 months of purchase it started clicking and not powering on right away, and eventually stopped working. This is the second Samsung I own which had the same problem.
Summary: This has to be the best piece of electronics that I have ever bought. I have had it for almost a year and I still love to look at it. It has a really smooth design and is just simply attractive. I love being able to just walk by and touch the power bar and have it turn on.
Summary: Picture quality is oustanding Blu-Ray looks amazing Games look amazing 120hz looks amazing althought there is slight blurring sometimes during cable televisiona nd sometimes in movies, its not enough to make a difference in my opinion of this tv. Its excellent.
Summary: I bought this TV about a month ago. The blu-ray movies looks awesome on this TV. The standard definition TV is so so, but I guess you purchase this TV mainly for blu-ray and high definition sports. Overall a good TV but I think the newer series (650) may be a bit better in terms of specs.
I am embarrassed at how much research I did only to have the tv fail in 2 months

Summary: Family and friends told me I spent more time reviewing what HDTV LCD to buy than purchasing a car or a house. Ha, I thought --- I am getting a Samsung 4071 where 90+% of the reviewers are happy. I never thought I'd be one of the 10% to have the TV TOTALLY FAIL. No picture, ghosts, then grey screen.
Waiting for replacement TV... will post a revised review later

Summary: I've had my eye on the Sony 40" XBR4 since January. The prices have been all over place and lately have been much higher than when I first started shopping around online. I went to Best Buy to check to do a visual comparison of the XBR4 vs 4071.
Summary: This is literally the best picture on a TV I've ever seen for being less that $2000. It arrived 3 days early, delivered by CEVA who did a great job setting it up and confirming it was working. After close inspection I couldn't find a single dead pixel.
Summary: WOW! Fabulous!! 4.5 stars I have researched LCD TVs for quite a while: about 7 months. I was set on purchasing the SONY XBR4 series, but could not justify paying $2400 - $3400 for a TV. So I just kept reading reviews from CNET and the AVS Forums, in addition to Amazon reviews.
Summary: Nice television, great picture. Can't complain. Even though the item was an "open box" item, the damage was extremely minimal (minor scuffs on the bottom front left corner) and for the price it was well worth it!
Summary: I held off buying a hi def TV for two reasons: 1. They were stupid expensive 2. None of them had a consistently great image Around Christmas time 2007 price issue seemed to go away and with features like 120hz panels and image smoothing using frame interpolation it seemed like the image quality was...
