Product Description

Amazon.com

Amazon.com Samsung's DLP-based HLN4365W projection television will thrill you with its amazingly slender 15-inch profile and broad, 43-inch display, whose widescreen format is specially configured to accommodate the native aspect ratios of favorite movies. Its small size and relatively light weight (under 70 pounds) free you to try it out in different parts of a home before settling on the spot that's right for you.

What is DLP?
The DLP processor DLP, or Digital Light Processing, is a technology that bounces a colored light beam across an array of hundreds of thousands of hinge-mounted microscopic mirrors attached to a single chip, called a "micro mirror device" (below, pictured with the head of a pin).
DLP mirrors dwarfed by the head of a pin
Each of the mirrors can be pointed toward or away from the light source thousands of times per second, providing not only minute color detail but also sharper resolution than even LCD displays.
Detail of resolution comparison between LCD and DLP
This isn't a garden-variety projection set. DLP, or Digital Light Processing technology (developed by Texas Instruments) allows purely digital connections between video sources and the projection system in front of you. The HLN4365W uses a second-generation (HD-2) DMD Chip, which--combined with Samsung's light-processing optics--results in clear, bright, high-contrast images. Further, the DLP panel is insusceptible to the damaging effects of heat, humidity, vibration, or aging, so burn-in will never be an issue--all the more reason to make this TV double as a computer monitor. Hang it, mount it, or place it on a stand.

And, when you're ready to take on the world of high-definition television, just add a HD satellite/off-air receiver or an HDTV tuner to enjoy full-quality digital HDTV broadcast programming--the set features a DVI-HDTV interface so you can establish a direct, premium-quality digital connection with your DTV receiver.

Samsung's DNIe Video Enhancer (or Digital Natural Image engine) enhances all analog NTSC and wideband video inputs for an overall improvement in picture quality. DNIe improves contrast, white level, and picture detail, incorporating digital noise reduction to improve low-quality video sources. The set's Automatic Digital Format Conversion System is compatible with 1080i and 720p HDTV, 480P EDTV, and 480i SDTV formats. The system accepts any DTV, analog TV, or XGA computer RGB input. All video signals are converted to a progressive-scanned 16:9 widescreen pixel count (1,280 x 720 resolution).

Film Mode 3:2 pulldown detection renders DVD movies in their native 24-frame format. Digital video mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture. Samsung's HD Ultra-Fine Pitch screen further improves picture clarity, especially when viewing higher-definition video sources like DVD and HDTV. The .155 mm screen brings out subtle image details otherwise unnoticeable on standard .72 mm pitch screens.

A total of 13 video inputs handles more than just about any set we've seen and includes the DVI input mentioned above, a PC input (D-Sub 15 pin, XGA), three each composite-video and S-video inputs, two high-definition component-video inputs, a DVD-specific input that handles 480i/p outputs, and two standard RF inputs (for VCRs and cable boxes).

You can assign picture-format sizes to each video input; the remote's "aspect" button toggles through the set's five options: zoom 1, zoom 2, wide, panorama, and normal (the TV retains the last format setting for each input); and all onscreen information and menus appear in translucent overlays, letting you view video programs in the background while consulting the setup menus.

The 15-watt-per-channel stereo audio system benefits from BBE Sound with a five-band equalizer, which enhances the sound from both movies and music programs. The Sound Mode Preset feature provides dynamic sound settings for whatever you're watching--choose from standard, music, movie, speech, or custom.

What's in the Box
TV, remote control, two AAA batteries, and a user's manual.

Hay dudes go for this one and stop wasting your time looking.
Jan R. Anderson
The only other answer I got from Samsung was that I needed to take it to a service center; this is after I told them that a television repair person had looked at it.

It has been one of the best investments in a TV that I have ever made.

I previously reviewed my HLN4365W set with the Samsumg DVD player using DVI output, and normal TV. I now have HD digital cable and want update the review. HDTV comes in two aspect ratios, normal and widescreen. Some of your favorite network shows will be in HD but normal aspect ratio - hence the black bars on each side. Increasingly, top network offerings are delivered in HD widescreen filling the entire HDTV screen. The quality of these pictures is superb, surpassing that seen with the best DVD source. I find myself selecting programs based as much on picture quality as content. In short, this TV will not dissapoint whether the source is DVD or HDTV.

To get the best from this TV you MUST feed it a good quality signal. The best way to connect this set to any source is via the DVI connector. An HD signal from DirecTV or a DVD played on a HTPC (Home Theater PC) looks absolutely stunning. On some of the standard definition channels that have a lot of compression, you will see flaws in the picture because the TV is quite revealing (almost ruthlessly so). Also, the picture is spectacularly bright, so viewing in a well lit room is no problem.

Verified Purchase
OK, OK, it's spendy.. but this is clearly not a must-have item for any household, it's a luxury! As far as luxuries go, this is one of the best and most affordable considering what you get.
I love the fact that this TV only weighs 60ish pounds. I've had to move it a number of times as I've been hooking up peripheral devices, and the light weight of the TV is appreciated!
Also love the fact that, unlike other widescreen projection TV's, the DLP technology assures there will never be tube or burn-in issues. Since much of the TV we all watch is not broadcast in widescreen, viewing in 4:3 is required if you don't want to add 20 pounds to every actor/actress (well, that might not be all that bad these days..) or stretch scenery to where it looks unnatural.
DVD's look AMAZING, especially if you have a DVD player with a DVI output. Samsung makes and Amazon sells one and I can't recommend it enough.
Long story short - this is an expensive TV but the light weight and the outstanding picture quality (esp from a distance of ~10 feet) make it worth the purchase. You won't be disappointed!

Was Great the 1st year and a half, then started getting flashing lights across the screen, they say we need a new light engine at --wait for it--$1500.00

No leeway from Samsung cause this is not supposed to happen, no I didn't get the extended warranty.

If you are going to buy Samsung you better get the extended warranty

I am off to find another brand and forget that Samsung exists

I just purchased this product and had some concern because of a couple of the ratings given. After a couple of days rerunning wires from my DVD, VCR, Audio System and of course the most important thing of all my HD cable box, I was in a New World of TV enjoyment. The key is that everything from TV is not HD compatible yet, but there are channels out there to get you through the night. This product provides you with great bravado. I'm not going to go through a lot of tech stuff to justify what I see, but if you want what you see and hear about in adds about really feeling like you are looking through a window, this is the way to go. Hay dudes go for this one and stop wasting your time looking.
PS
Yes I did research which included a number of testimonials.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jan at the Ranch on December 24, 2010
Before I bought this set I did some research, well, a lot of research and everything pointed to the DLP. After checking around town, I found the Samsung DLP at a local independent retailer. While talking to the salesman, he was trying to get some idea of what I needed and it all boiled down to this set. Unlike others, I did get the extended warranty and have had only one call on it in 4 years. The picture is great from any angle and the color is super. In addition, I connected mine to a home theater system, albeit in the living room, so I have no idea what the speakers are like. After reading all the "bad" reviews I don't know if I got lucky or they got lemons. I'm happy and friends like it as well. My son didn't believe that the DLP was different so he walked up to the set, eyeball-to-eyeball, and decided it really was different from the others and is a believer. To me, the nice thing is that I don't have to think about buying a new TV in a couple of years. You replace the lamp, under warranty, and it's just like a new set!

I just got the tv yesterday from Sears; actually a floor model and hence the price was less than usual. Definitely an improvement from the behemoth Toshiba that I had. I did do some research prior to purchasing and this is what I found.

Overall everyone seems to like the pic quality. Sony is the closest competitor; if you manage to set the pic correctly there should not be any difference. Switching to satellite from cable supposedly improves pic quality. Since I bought it just yesterday, I cannot say a lot about my experience - the pic is truly great.

However, some also complained about the bad Samsung customer service. Moreover, the bulb needs to be changed every 8000-10000 viewing hours and one can probably do it (according to the manual) without calling the service personnel. The bulb costs around $250. Some customers had a bad experience with the bulb within the first few months of its operation.

Overall, I tend to have no regrets about the purchase and really looking forward to the experience. If something goes awry, I will let you folks know.
