Had this TV for about 1 month now. Got at BJs, delivered for under $1200. Set up pretty simple. I used the THX Optimizer which is found on most Lucas DVDs such as any Star Wars. So far, Id say the picture is great. Normal cable is what it is, its ok. But I have HD programming and a PS3, which I use for Blue Ray disks. HD looks great! Ive seen so many posts on the net that say 1080 on a TV less that 42 in is not noticable...well, thats BS. I can see a huge difference and the HD and Blue rays look very nice. Also, with 5ms response time, I have no blurring or ghosting when I game, and I play a lot of fast race games.

Pros - Great picture and easy to set up.

Cons - Only one so far is the remote needs to be aimed right at the TV or it wont work.

If a 40 In TV will fit your needs( I have a 800 SF apt, and this TV is a perfect fit), you cant go wront with this TV.

I've had this 1080p/20000:1/5ms/60Hz LCD for a week and my initial experience is extremely satisfactory. It performs as advertised for HDTV, DVD, & PC (haven't tried gaming yet). Works great in a brigth room. No pixelation in fast scenes. Easy access menus. Plenty of inputs for my needs. Looks great.

After offers and coupons, my total price at a local B&M store was $1,356 including the LCD, a sleek Samsung 1080 up-conv. DVD player, a 4-year extended warranty and taxes. Can't complain!

Minor cons: Below average sound. Remote control must be carefully aimed at the front of the TV, very narrow angle of operation.

Bottom line: If a 40-inch screen size is enough for your viewing needs, this unit holds its own against any other top competitor brands in this category.

Samsung LN40A530 40-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV

What a bargain. I went shopping for a Sony and ended up with this great TV. Everything is there for your needs. I have no reason to connect my laptop, but it will do that if you want.

The picture is stunning. I compared this to the more expensive models in both Samsung and Sony, and didn't notice much difference.

The sound is exceptional, so I don't run it through my system except for some movies. There are three energy saving modes. I have mine set at medium at night. If you have the setting off, it's brilliantly blinding! You need to have additional lighting on.

A great value, great picture (5 ms), and great sound. The manufactures website hasn't caught up with certain stats, so don't rely on everything you read on there site.

Why spend more!

Verified Purchase
I've had this TV for a little over 2 months now. The picture quality is fantastic and one advantage of this TV over the LN40A550 I immediately noticed is that the sound is WAY better on this TV. I recommend getting the best picture quality settings from the AVS forum and adjusting the back-lighting to accommodate YOUR rooms lighting. I use Warm 1 setting for blu-ray/DVD movies and normal/standard(with low dynamic contrast on) setting for regular HDTV viewing. PS3 games look great too(game mode)

If I needed another television, I would buy another one of these without hesitation.

Cons(minor) - I agree with other posts, TV remote has to be pointed directly at the TV to work.

Edit - March 2010 and this TV is still great!!

Samsung has done it again! They never cease to amaze me with their clear picture and sharp color that blows the competition out of the water. My husband and I who aren't sports people at all, never knew what we were missing until now. You can see all the details of the playing field. It's easy to set up and run plug and play. It makes as a great decorative piece in your home and can be wall mounted if you pay for a mount seperately or placed on it's stand. We were going to get a 42" but the price different was drastically different and decided we could live with a couple inches less for a better price. Do not be fooled by plasma, they don't last very long and the bulb burns into the picture. LCD is a little more expensive but it last longer in the long run. Save yourself the hassle and pic up a Samsung LCD 1080p TV today!

3 STARS NOT 4

I have this tv hooked up to a samsung blu ray dvd play and an xbox 360. i was impressed and it seems like a nice tv, but after playing some grand theft auto 4 and watching ironman on the tv i can notice the ghosting problem. during high action or faster moving parts you notice i can lose clarity, although its not to the point where it well bother you. i notice when im watching for it, when im just sitting back watching a movie its not that big of a deal. i do like watch NHL and CFL games so i am considering returning this product and upgrading to one with 120Hz. im not sure what i well do because this is a good tv for the price. in stores the ones that have 120Hz are about $400. so this is not really a review, im just letting people know that you may notice a ghosting problem, but its still a good tv.

EDIT - I Have now returned this tv and picked up the cheaper 330 model which is only 720p. picture quality is almost the same, nothing noticable from 5 feet back.
