Summary: This tv does NOT have an ethernet port on the back to the tv or anywhere on the tv. Supposedly you can get an adapter to hook it up, but that is an extra $40 - $50. The instruction manual says that the adapter was supplied, but it wasn't with my tv.
Summary: I owned this TV from 2010 to 2012. Unfortunately in June, a kid's toy flew across the living room and hit the TV in a manner to render it finished for good (un-repairable). I was very excited in 2010 when I got this set.
Summary: After about a month with mostly weekend usages, there is a green line appeared from top to bottom about 6" from the left panel. No, it is not the conversion. I contacted Samsung and they said the panel needs to be replaced.
Summary: I've been using the TV for a few weeks now...i was previously using an 8 series 46" Samsung LCD from 2008...which I've been very happy with..I was looking forward to upgrading to a brand new 55" inch LED from Samsung with 3d capability. I made one flawed assumption in buying this TV early on..
Better than 2009's Samsung edge lit LED LCD's...just not enough to eliminate a few issues/flaws

Summary: I've owned this television for a few weeks now, and I've been putting it through a battery of tests using a variety of different sources and room lighting conditions. To get right to the point, I am returning it -- it will be picked up this week -- and waiting for either the UNC8000 precision...
Conclusion: In the fast changing world of HD TV, this is already a superceded model and should be cheaper. Why pay full price when for a couple of hundred dollars more you could get an LED 3D set? If you find one on sale, it may even be cheaper than this Samsung 40" LCD TV.
Pros: Samsung is a market leader and has a reputation for innovation and quality. It's always worth considering this brand.
Cons: This model was released in April of 2010. Things have changed since then and improvements made. The price of this TV doesn't seem to have fallen as it should have.
