Summary: I had a 40inch samsung 40A630, that I bought in 2009. it had 120 HZ and 1080P. i was very happy with the TV but decided to upgrade because I "needed" a bigger TV for the Super Bowl. Well let's just say I'm ok with the upgrade but would not have made the upgrade to this TV. The TV just isn't as bright or clear as the Samsung. If you are going to upgrade in size make sure you do your homework because this TV isn't doing it for me in the house.
