Summary: It has been my primary TV for 5 years, for football games, Netflix, videogames, movies, and it's still great. The picture quality is terrific, the dynamic range is nice, and it's still as silent as the day I bought it. Great TV.
Summary: Bought it to bring with us when we moved. Took it out of the box, turned it on, and the main power supply went poof. Samsung did send us our money back - after we found a service tech so he could remove some part so they'd know it was officially dead. Went out and bought another Samsung (LCD) and it's been great for the last 3 years.
Summary: The speakers make a sound resembling that of a boiling tea pot in the distance. One can ignore it or compulsively go nuts unable to not hear it. At some point I may buy a value priced sound bar and turn off the native speakers of the television. This problem probably occurred with in the warranty but I just didn't feel like going through the hassle of packing and shipping the damn thing to get the sound fixed. All other aspects of the television have been good, however.
Summary: Okay I've been doing some research and reading all the reviews. Firstly, I've owned Samsung HTV's before and have always been happy with their equipment. During my review of a bedroom replacement HDTV I came across the Samsung PN42B450. Since I recently removed all my cable boxes in the house except for the HDTV/DVR (Comcast Georgia) I needed a HDTV with a built-in tuner to scan Comcast signals using IRC.
Summary: I ordered this tv and it delivered as it qouted. Two gentlemen delivered the tv, they set it up in and out just less than 20 minutes. The tv color is incredible impressive and I'm loving it for the price I paid. Only three issues: I have to use cable digital remote control to change from channel to channel but can't adjust volume up and down; Have to adjust screen up and down between different channels if I want to watch top/bottom scores or tikcers; Doesn't have a...
Summary: Our previous TV was a decent 32-inch LCD with an excellent picture. After three years, I came to realize that a 32-inch size is not optimum for viewing from 8-10 feet away in our living room. So I set off on researching a larger HDTV option. I determined that a 40-42 inch size would fit our space perfectly and be well-suited to our viewing distance. Based on my good experience with the 32-inch LCD, I started looking at 40-inch LCDs only.
Summary: For the price, this TV is a really good product. The picture is great. You can't even tell it's a 720p unless you're watching from two feet away. Easy to use, looks great in the room (we use ours in a living room with low natural light). Only issue is the sound. Can change drastically from channel to channel and sometimes with commercials. Other than that, I'm very happy with this TV.
Summary: Ordered TV on Monday at 11:00 PM had TV in hand and set up Thursday 4:00 PM. First off CEVA shipping on this item Free "White Glove Service" was awesome. They even put batteries in remote while unpacking set and lifted set 5 feet to put into cubby above fireplace, Incredible service and well worth the few bucks I gave them when they left. The TV is awesome. Got it the night the Winter Olympics were starting so was excited to see how tv worked.
