- What size TV should you get?
|Delivers the entire spectrum of color and luminance for rich, saturated images with intense detail. Whereas blue and green shaded areas of the picture are washed out on conventional screens, wide color enhancer lets you experience more brilliant colors. Simply imagine a wider range of colors than you ever thought possible.|
|By being ENERGY STAR compliant you are assured that your Samsung model is helping the environment by using less energy while saving you money. ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy promoting energy efficiency.|
|With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience. |
If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get.

OK, onto the review.
The hardest part with the setup is attaching the stand and inserting the batteries in the remote. The first time you turn it on it goes into setup mode. Answer a few questions and it starts to scan for channels.
The menus are easy to use. Well organized and displayed. You may need to keep the manual handy for descriptions of some of the options but experimenting is fun.
Audio- this is a TV, TV's aren't known for their great speakers. At first the audio was very low. After playing with the audio setup a bit I was able to set the options to my liking. You can even set the sound mode with one button on the remote while you're watching something and avoid going into the detailed menus. The "Clear Voice" mode is a godsend for me (I'm 61 and my hearing isn't what it used to be). I could immediately tell the difference when I selected that mode.
Picture- Very good for a set this size and price. I have two other HD televisions (a 52" Sharp 1080p LCD and a 42" Panasonic 720p Plasma) and this TV is as good. I've watched some basketball games and haven't noticed any screen-door effect with fast motion. SD and HD channels come in clear (I have Cox Cable and I'm not using a HDTV box). The 'Screen Fit' option only works if you have a source connected via HDMI (and maybe component-I'm not sure). That option will adjust a SD show to fit the screen without stretching it. If you aren't using, for example, a cable box you'll either have to set the TV to 4:3 or suffer with odd looking stretched SD content.Read more ›
This is a great looking TV and the reddish horizontal line at the bottom is subtle. It is sleek and the controls are almost invisible when you are looking at the TV from a front point of view. In fact the power button is discreet to a fault as we turn the power on via the power button on the TV - not the remote - it's on the side and you can't see it so you have to "feel" for the power button. Now maybe in a brighter room this wouldn't be a problem but our TV sits inside of an amoire. The picture is beautiful and clear and of course especially on the HDTV channels. The sound is excellent (I think earlier versions of this TV had sound quality complaints). The setup process was not as easy as expected as we had to spend some time on the phone with Comcast to get things correctly set up and subsequently had to get a new box for all the HDTV channels.
Would definetly recommend this Samsung HDTV.
-Deepest black levels I've seen on a 26" or 32" LCD TV.
-Perfect backlight uniformity on mine; no flashlighting or backlight bleed.
-Good color accuracy on the warm1 setting.
-Plays xvid encoded avi files off of usb flash drives.
-Noticeable ghosting during motion.
-Game mode is grayed out when connected to my computer through HDMI.

Again Samsung came through with a great picture and awful sound. This could have been a five star set if they had engineered a decent audio system.Published on March 14, 2012 by Don
