From the Manufacturer

Manufacturer's Review (April 23, 2009)
It won't take long for you to notice how beautiful the LN40B530 is. With a sleek, black bezel and new transparent bottom edge, it's the perfect addition to your entertainment space. 1080p resolution produces the highest quality picture on the market and blacks and shadows are strikingly superb, thanks to the 60,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. Best of all, this HDTV is Energy Star compliant, which means you'll save on your electric bill.

Samsung Series 5 Full HD LCD TVs
Building off the sophisticated design and performance feature set of the 720p Series 4, Samsung's 1080p Series 5 takes the SAMSUNG LCD HDTV experience one step further. These TVs feature touch-sensitive manual controls that eliminate the side buttons. The Series 5 LCD HDTV incorporates many premium features, like 24p, Clear Panel, three HDMI connections, Entertainment Mode and a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of up to 30,000:1, and is available in the following sizes: 32-inch, 37-inch, 40-inch, 46-inch, 52-inch.

1080p Resolution
Enjoy outstanding clarity and resolution with this SAMSUNG LCD HDTV. Images are crisper, sharper, with superior details.

Built-In Digital Tuner
All Samsung LCD HDTVs have an integrated digital tuner. So, whether you're watching over-the-air HD digital broadcasts or connecting to cable/satellite service, Samsung has got you covered.

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.

Contrast and brightness levels achieve new heights with a 60,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.

A very fast 6ms response time virtually eliminates any blurring and gives you smooth-motion action scenes.

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.

60,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
Contrast and brightness levels achieve new heights in this HDTV. Get a more realistic, sharper picture quality that's sure to catch your eye and watch movies and shows come to life.

6ms 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 6ms response time virtually eliminates any blurring and gives you smooth-motion action scenes.

SRS TruSurround HD
Assisted by the LN40B530's two 10W bottom speakers, this creates an immersive, feature-rich surround sound experience from two speakers, complete with rich bass, high frequency detail and clear dialog.

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

Upon researching the issue, it turns out that it is very common for this brand to have defective capacitors in their TVs.

I waited a few months after purchasing this tv, before attempting a review.

MY experiences/opinions are (scale of 1-10, 10 being the best):

Handling, ability to move to desired location: 10 ... light, easy for 1 person to move,maneuver, install on stand

Easiness to initially setup/get useful asap: 10 ... You really do NOT need the directions, but they are excellent

Connections amount,availability, setup: 10 ... I have cable, a PS3, and Xbox360, dvd ... too easy if you ask
me !

Viewing: 9 ... great from even extreme angles. Adjustments in the menu DO fine tune your individual needs.
: the 1080P shines in action movies, sports, and especially video games ... resolution is phenomenal !
: I've experienced NO bleeding of colors or blurriness in high speed transitions

Audio: 7 ... OK at best, but I bought it for its viewing capabilities, NOT expecting a 'Bose' audio capacity.
One of its menu items allows you to keep advertising volumes the same as network broadcast volumes...
Mine does NOT function that way... commercials still too loud

I have it (easily connected to) enhanced by my stereo system, so this is a wash as far as I am concerned
when wanting to listen to a Nascar race, music concert, or other venue.

Price: I did a LOT of homework, and found the price very acceptable in comparison to other tv's boasting
similar if not identical capabilities... I bought mine on sale at Best Buy, but lucked into a good price

Green : Not much heat coming out of the uppermost exhaust vents

My end result: A great buy.

YES, a thumbs "UP" !

After owning a SONY HD tv, and experienced their lack of customer attention/satisfaction...

I'm watching baseball on the LN40B530 as I write this, and am blown away by the crisp picture and wonderful colors. The sound is fine as far as my family is concerned. I did make some adjustments to the equalizer, which improved how it sounded right out of the box. I walked past the "tv wall" at a local Best Buy, and to me this TV looked as good as the ones in the $2,000-and-up range. As far as its being "only" 60hz, it looked better than some of the 120hz ones. Maybe if you're a heavy gamer that's an important consideration, but nobody here is. Our previous TV was a Hitachi plasma EDTV that we thought was great, but this is a big improvement. Can't wait to see a blue-ray disc on it. I wonder if the previous reviewer had a defective one. None of their complaints are true of this unit at all.

I this is my 2nd LCD and the picture quality is amazing! With 60,000:1 contrast ratio, the colors just POP and make everything look realistic. Standard definition picture quality is good(i.e. standard cable), but HD quality is amazing. My last set was a philips and the colors on people's faces didn't quite look realistic but this samsung, everything looks realistic. The picture settings out of the box are pretty good but with a little adjustment(you can find calibration settings online) the PQ is amazing. The only compliant I have with this TV is the sound which is more than acceptable though.

Needed a good 1080p LCD without breaking the bank and this one fit the bill...PC powerpoints, Sony PS3 and Blu-Ray discs all look great, and the brightness is good for daytime use in well lit rooms. I like it!

This is the first lcd tv I have ever owned. When I first bought it I was worried about how I would like it after reading some other complaints. I have owned many tv's and compared to them I can't find anything to say bad about it. I love the picture, sound, and the controls. I might buy another one for another room.

First I want to say how impressed I am with Crutchfield. When I purchased this unit through Amazon I really didn't pay much attention to who the actual seller was since it received the standard free shipping. I purchased this on a Saturday morning. With in 2 hours I received a phone call from Crutchfield thanking me for my purchase and explaining how the unit would be shipped, etc. I was very impressed with this and would absolutely purchase from Crutchfield in the future.

As for the Samsung - The picture is great with HD. I got it primarily for sports and the HD channels look great. Some of the standard def channels are not so spectacular but I don't necessarily think that is a fault of the Samsung, I think it is more a Directv issue. I have an issue giving anything 5 stars but if you are looking for an LCD in this size range you should take a look at this one.

This is a great TV. The only thing that I found disappointing is the particular model I purchased did not come with the side inputs for hooking up my digital camera or camcorder etc. Getting to the back of the TV is an inconvenience and it also results in less input options.
It's my first flat screen so I wasn't aware that this would be an issue.
