Summary: When you look at it, isn't the goal of buying a new TV picture quality. Well, the Samsung doesn't fail in that category. Probably the best picture I've seen anywhere. I wish I could say the same for the balance of the features. Internet Connectivity: The Samsung was very particular about connecting to the internet. I had one connection that was tested on a laptop that worked fine not be able to deliver an IP address using DHCP to the set.
Summary: I bought this tv about a month and a half ago. My experience so far has been very positive. Setup was easy and fairly straight-forward. The instructions are very clear about how to connect everything for most setups. The remote works well and can light up in the dark, which can be useful (although I haven't used it much). The picture itself is quite good. There is some minor brightness variation around the corners, but I don't find it noticeable most of the time.
Summary: Fantastic tv.Very Easy to hook up the tv to the stand.I connected my ps3 and it works great with it. Certain menu options are difficult to reach but once you get used to the remote, this is not an issue. I felt like watching in Movie mode made picture too dim for my interest. I am still finding out the right calibration for the movie mode. 3D pictures looks amazing, glasses are comfortable. But forget about the 2d-> 3D conversion. I just did not feel anything 3D in it.
Summary: The first TV I received was defective. When I first plugged it in, it continuously and repeatedly turned itself on and off and the setup screen did not appear. I phoned Samsung support and they concluded the problem was with the power cord or power supply and offered to send out a technician. I learned from Amazon that this size (40") and price TV fall outside their usual return policy.
Summary: I had been admiring the new Samsung LED TVs for some time and, when the old TV in our bedroom got struck by lightening, I took advantage of Amazon's great bundle deal and bought this 40" 3D set along with the 36 Blueray DVD player and two pairs of 3D glasses. The TV is pretty much everything I would expect from Samsung. Great styling, amazingly thin and light and a first class picture.
Summary: Picture quality is superb. 3D via bluray or directv looks very good. Mounted on the wall with the monoprice knockoff of the samsung mount ($12.95 instead of $150!) so it hangs on a wire like a picture frame at about a half inch from the wall. Very sleek addition to our bedroom.
Summary: THIS IS AN EXTREMELY GOOD TV WITH NICE COLOR AND CONTRAST. THE 2D TO 3D CONVERSION ISN'T THAT GREAT BUT REGULAR 3D CONTENT SUCH AS ESPN3D AND 3D BLU RAYS HAVE OUTSTANDING 3D EFFECTS. THE ONLY PROBLEM I FIND WITH THIS TV IS THAT IF THE BACKLIGHT IS SET TOO BRIGHT, YOU GET THE FLASHLIGHT EFFECT IN THE 4 CORNERS AND A BIT OF CLOUDING. BUT IF YOU BRING THE BRIGHTNESS DOWN WHICH HELPS THE PICTURE CONTRAST IT'S NOT THAT BAD. OVERALL I THOUGHT THIS TV WAS A GREAT BUY.
Summary: 3d is an emerging market, and this tv has the added bonus of converting 2d-3d so you are not stuck only watching Monsters Vs Aliens which is a cartoon and not the greatest movie in the universe, I have plugged in a ps3, a dvr, an apple tv and anything else that has an hdmi, including the free blu ray player that I got. Right now, this is one of the best deals going, Samsung is giving a free blu ray player and a free 3d starter kit.
Summary: Recently..I ordered the Samsung UN40C7000 3D TV..It has a lot of good features to it..(You can even play your VHS on it)..But I have to say this..This TV is NOT for everyone..It makes standard broadcasting look as if your have a 1975 Zenith TV..(laughing)..So if you just want to watch HDTV..you're better off with an 1080P TV..(e.g. the Samsung 6000 series or an RCA 1080P TV)..I happen to own an RCA HDTV & it's an excellent TV if you just want FULL HiDef..In all.
