30,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
Contrast and brightness levels achieve new heights in this LCD TV. Watch movies and shows come to life with enhanced details in very dark or bright scenes. Enjoy a more realistic, sharper picture quality that's sure to catch your eye.

Built-In Digital Tuner

Contrast and brightness levels achieve new heights with a 30,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.

A very fast 8ms response time virtually eliminates any blurring and gives you smooth-motion action scenes.

8ms Response
One of the most important features for an LCD panel is the pixel response time. Response time refers to the amount of time it takes a pixel to "refresh" itself-to go from being active to being inactive, (ready to be re-activated). The lower the milliseconds, the faster the response time. A very fast 8ms response time virtually eliminates any blurring and gives you smooth-motion action scenes.

Wide Color Enhancer 2
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 color than you ever thought possible.

ENERGY STAR Compliant
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.

Game Mode
Get in the game with enhanced blacks, sharp picture quality and optimum audio. At the touch of a button, game mode speeds up the image processing response so you get the most out of your gaming experience.

Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?

HDTV Size chart
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.
  • Minimum size = Viewing distance/3
  • Maximum size=Viewing distance/1.5

This is a new model (out March 2009), and is the just released 'B' version of the popular, judging by the many reviews, samsung 'A' version 32 inch TV. I wanted a TV with an excellent value for a 32 inch TV with a good 720p picture and sound. The picture is actually fantastic and looks good on the standard setting and really stunning at the dynamic setting (if the room is light enough), and in the store looked slightly better then Sony Bravia S-Series KDL-32S5100 32-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV, Black even though that TV is a 1080p one. I did a visual comparison of the two for a while in the store becuase I was trying to justify going 1080p but couldnt since this picture seemed better even at 720p. If I could, I would have gone for the Sony BRAVIA XBR KDL-32XBR9 32-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV which looked the best though for a 32 inch overall.

720p vs 1080p:
I couldn't understand why a 1080p TV would make a difference with this size of TV, since I sit about nine feet away and at that distance I don't think you could tell - at least the PC input is small enough and sharp enough that I can read web pages comfortably from my couch but if it were any smaller it would be too small/detailed. I dont think I would use more than 720p detail unless I wanted to see more web page content on the screen and planned to sit about 4 feet away. The TV has exactly the same resolution as

I badly needed a new television, and decided on a whim to head to best buy and see what was available. I hadn't been shopping for tv's in around 7 years, and from what I remembered that was when plasmas were amazing but all cost upwards of $4,000, and LCD, as a technology, just wasn't there yet. To my amazement the TV's in the store, even those well under $1,000, all looked fantastic. I settled on this tv after comparing it, endlessly, to other 32-inch models by Sony, Toshiba and LG. The Samsung had the best clarity, image depth and color. For only $550, this TV is gorgeous...standard cable looks good, DVD looks fantastic, and HD is just amazing. After initially thinking I wanted a 1080p HD, not 720p, I realized that in this size it just doesn't matter, and isn't worth the extra money. In all honesty, I felt like the 1080p image in this size television is a bit too sharp, a bit too bright and a bit too clear...it almost makes everything look like a cartoon or a video game. In the end, you really can't beat this television...the internal speakers sound great, it looks damn sexy in any room, and the picture quality makes you wonder why you paid so little...

Much like many of the other customers who purchased the Samsung 32" B Series LCD television, I too, did MUCH research before buying this television. After going to Target, Walmart, BestBuy, and various online stores, I decided to purchase the Samsung after MANY comparisons, and for only $499.99 at BestBuy.

Between the price, brand name, and overall quality we can expect from Samsung, it just made sense to buy this television set over Sony. This television was bought with the intention of not spending more than $500 and having it perform at least above average for my bedroom.

Upon looking at comparable televisions, the Samsung had an AMAZING picture. It was EXCEPTIONALLY clear and very clean, new, and expensive looking. The options were exactly what I wanted: Computer input, 2 HDMI cable inputs, and multiple component inputs. It was 720P but after speaking with many owners and doing more and more research, it just isn't worth the money to purchase a 1080p TV set ($700+) when you WON'T be able to tell ANY real difference under 40" television sets - THAT IS A GUARANTEED FACT!

Hope that helped....

I've had mine for three days now and could not be more pleased. The picture is crystal clear, the colors are deep and the contrast is great. Good sound and easily set up, didn't have to consult the owners manual once. The remote is laid out well and everything is easy to access. The only minor thing I don't care for is how you access the sleep mode timer. Unlike most remotes with a dedicated button for the sleep timer on it, you have to open a menu and drill down to set the sleep timer. As this is a great bedroom size, this could be a slight annoyance for those who use the sleep timer function a lot. That is the only con I have on this beautiful TV. This TV has a lot of high end features such as being able to name the various inputs, such as calling HDMI 1 as Satellite, HDMI 2, as DVD etc. I'm very happy with mine and for the money, its fantastic.

I absolutely love my new Samsung LN32B360 720p LCD HDTV!!!!

I knew I would like this t.v. the moment I took it out of the box. Although I was somewhat disappointed with this flat panel t.v having only 2 HDMI ports, I quickly got over it once turned it on. The picture quality this t.v. is amazing and the sound coming from it's speakers definitely impressed me to say the least. The t.v screen looks good from almost any angle. I'm happy with my purchase and I would definitely recommend this t.v to any who's in the market for buying a new lcd hdtv under 40" and won't put a huge whole in their wallet. I think 720p is sufficient for flat panel televisions under 40 inches. I think getting a 1080p flat panel t.v. under 40" would be a waste of many if you're buying it for the sole purpose of watching 1080p (1920x1080) resolution.

I want to share my calibrated picture settings for this model t.v. with anyone who's looking to optimize their viewing pleasure. I'm content with these settings and I hope you find theses settings satisfying as well. Give Me Feedback on these settings. Tell me what you think or share your own picture settings.
