Summary: At the time of my purchase the Item Description was for 120hz refresh rate when in fact is is really 60hz. On Walmart.com it also had it labelled as a Smart TV which it's not. All that being said the TV is still the best TV for the price. We bought this for my 8 year old son's room to play games on along with a 3 in 1 Swivel TV Stand. The TV meets all expectations for the price point.
Summary: Honestly, it was my mistake for not noticing this model listed as not a SmartTV, one I actually wanted. However, this model has certainly met my expectations for a first-time buyer purchasing a HDTV. As per stated in numerous online reviews, this model is an entry-level HDTV which leaves something to be desired in audio quality and standard features that can be found in CRTs (very minute detail but PIP for example).
Summary: This Samsung is a great bedroom and good living room tv. Has many sound, picture features, settings you can set to your liking and the 1080p picture is stunning. Surprisingly the sound is decent as well. You can get a soundbar or a system but it's not really necessary. Downsides are it's advertised 120hz but it's really 60hz. Human eye can barely tell the difference just wish that's what it was. Other then that excellent tv!!!!!!
Pros: All the connections options I could ever need, Best looking TV out there, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote Control, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound Quality, LED-backlit, Reduced Glare
Summary: By and large I love my new Samsung 40 inch set; color is crisp and clear; set is very attractive and the price is terrific. BUT consumers should note some deceptive advertising by Samsung. The specs say the resolution is 1080p and something called the Clear Motion Rate[CMR] is 120; in other places it says the HZ is 120. Not so!! The HZ is only 60 which, technically, means the picture is not as crisp as it would be for a TV set with 120Hz.
