Samsung LN46B530 46-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV

From the Manufacturer

Manufacturer's Review (April 23, 2009)
It won't take long for you to notice how beautiful the LN46B530 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 LN46B530'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

Top Customer Reviews

I have owned this TV for about 5 months and I am very impressed with this TV and have many good things to say about it. I currently have this TV hanging on my wall and usually watch it at around a 12-foot distance which I believe is a good distance for a 46-inch TV. I am also using this TV as a monitor for a home theater PC which looks just as good as my other computer monitor, if not better. The only reason i didn't give this TV 5 stars is because of the built in speakers

PROS

Matte screen finish (Reduces glare significantly which is a big plus when viewing in a room with lots of windows)

Built-in video up-scalar is awesome (I am always impressed when watching VHS and DVD movies.)

Power Consumption (Only 230 Watts powered)

Weight (Weight without the stand is less than 50 lbs which is light enough for me to lift it onto the wall by myself)

HDMI connections (3 HDMI connections seems plenty enough for the devices I have currently)

60,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (twice as good as previous model)

CONS

Built in speakers (Speakers started to rattle and buzz after the volume was turned up to around 50. I would defiantly recommend a home audio system if you want to get the full movie experience)

Component video connections (I had to buy a component switch that could handle my component connections from my Wii, Playstation, and DVD player)

This will be my 3rd HDTV purchase as somehow I have been unofficially designated the HDTV guru of my friends and family. I have done ALOT of research (about 3 years worth). I have become quite familiar with the HDTV market and various HDTV brands and what they offer, pros and cons of each etc.

FYI:
Right now is probably the best I have ever seen the HDTV market for purchasing a HDTV set.

Amazon is by far the best source to make your HDTV purchase decision for several reasons.
1. Reliable Customer Service
2. No Sales Tax
3. Extended premium warranties are by far better and cheaper than at the brick and mortar stores.
4. Customer Reviews are extrememly helpful as people that have already purchased the TV may point something out you may not have thought about.
5. Free Shipping

My Previous Purchases (All Purchased from Amazon):
1. Sony KDL-40V2500 (For myself)
2. Sony KDL-40S5100 (For a friend)(contacted sony and had them send be a USB flash drive (for free) with the firmware update preloaded and have not had any problems since)
3. Samsung LN46B530 (For my grandpa)(Does NOT have Red touch of color as I think that feature is ugly)
4. I have setup and installed countless other HDTV's for friends and family members that I did not purchase.

But enough about that, lets take a look at the Samsung LN46B530 shall we?
PRICE WAS AWESOME, Under $850 for a 46" 1080p Samsung?? Where do I sign?!
Out of the box impression is quite normal, packaging is plentiful and the TV is well protected for shipping. The panel itself is NON-REFLECTIVE which is great.

We recently replaced an old tube style TV with this Samsung 46" HDTV and are very satisfied with our purchase. The picture is incredibly clear and the colors are well balanced. Reflections from nearly windows are virtually non-existant and off-axis viewing provides no noticable deterioration in picture quality which are a big plus. The only marginal aspect of this HDTV is its internal speakers which offer fairly limited voice and music quality. Using separate stereo or home theater sound components is highly recommended. All in all a great TV!

I bought this TV after a very long period of research, based on the generally positive reviews of Samsung LCDs. I was aware that Samsung uses a variety of sources for the LCD panels for their TVs and had heard that some of them were not so good; even so, I thought I'd end up with a pretty good TV. I was wrong. I received a unit with one of the "bad" panels and it looked absolutely horrible to my eyes - ghosting and trailing everywhere, terrible off-angle colors even for a LCD, also a fair bit of backlight clouding (which I'm aware is an issue with many LCDs out there, but still disappointing to see). Now, a friend of mine has an older Panasonic with an IPS type panel that I think looks terrific aside from fairly poor black levels. I thought that a new Samsung surely could best this, but I didn't realize how much poorer the PVA/MVA panels they use are, especially when you get one out of the bottom of the bucket like me.

I'd like to think of some good pros to put here as well, but I don't have much to say. It was bright, almost unnaturally so. I guess this could be good or bad. I wasn't able to find a setting that I was quite comfortable with though. TV commercials (VIA Comcast HD cable) were blinding while the actual programs (Lost and 24 especially) were dark, muddy and hard to see. The picture was very sharp and displayed details nicely, at least when things weren't moving around too much. Video games (Xbox 360 with HDMI) performed a fair bit better than TV programming, with no perceivable input lag with the set in Game Mode. I didn't get around to testing any DVDs because the ghosting/trailing effect was bothering me too much to enjoy anything. I will say that the physical appearance of the TV was very sleek and stylish - that's one part they got right.
