Product Description

Product Description

Samsung maintains it's leadership position in pushing the envelope of LCD TV technology with this HD-Grade Widescreen series. High pixel resolution and a wide viewing angle combine with a 3000:1 dynamic contrast ratio to provide true state-of-the-art image reproduction. Product Description If you're just entering the HD arena and don't want to break the bank on your first flat-screen television, the entry-level 26-inch Samsung LNS2641D LCD TV is a great fit for your budget and it offers many of the same video processing features as its higher end 51- and 52-Series siblings. It features an integrated HDTV tuner, 10-bit video processor, and a 3000:1 contrast ratio for smooth, vibrant pictures. It also includes dual HDMI inputs for simultaneous signal transfer of audio and video from digital devices and PC connectivity. The dual purpose pedestal stand can also be used as an articulating wall mount when it’s folded back. Additionally, the stand can be removed for wall-mounting via optional VESA compatible hardware (such as Samsung wall mounting kit WMTL2600).

Samsung's DNIe™
Samsung's DNIe™ (click for demo) technology offers digital perfection in naturally presented, crystal-clear images that uncover even the most minute detail.

Motion Optimizer: The visual data are automatically broken down into signal and noise and adjusted through a combined spatial/temporal process to eliminate noise and blurring without the slightest damage to the original signal. This guarantees the viewer a picture of astounding sharpness, whether the scene is still or moving.

Contrast Enhancer: DNIe has done away with the unwanted side-effects that conventional contrast enhancement can produce, such as noise boost-up and flicker by developing an algorithm that recognizes over 1 million criteria for applying contrast. Its detail contrast enhancement technology can automatically analyze up to 70,000 local images within a frame, treating the viewer to a picture rich in contrast even in the tiniest details.

Color optimizer: For each scene the color optimizer calculates the saturation of red, green, and blue in the input signal and adjusts it to the shades that the human eye accepts as natural. Even a conventional process like white tone enhancement produces more striking results when when used with DNIe. The end result is a palette of vivid hues and pure white tones to satisfy the most discerning viewers eye.

Detail enhancer: Many viewers complain of the unnatural effect that conventional uniform detail enhancement produces by relying on artificial amplification of the input signal. In contrast, DNIe automatically analyzes the portion to be amplified, detecting and re-processing any noise or defect to bring the viewer a startlingly sharp and lifelike image.
The Samsung Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) Video Enhancer refines all analog NTSC and wideband video inputs for an overall improvement in picture quality. DNIe improves contrast, white level, picture detail and incorporates digital noise reduction to improve lower quality video inputs. The 3D Y/C digital comb filter constantly analyzes the three dimensions of picture height, picture width, and picture changes-over-time to dramatically reduce edge image artifacts while improving transition detail.

Get a great view from anywhere in the room with this TVs great verticle and horizontal 170-degree viewing angle.
The LNS2641D features a stunning 3000:1 contrast ratio, 500 cd/m2 brightness rating (for brighter whites, deeper blacks, and every shade in between), a 1366 x 768-pixel resolution (for a widescreen 16:9 screen aspect ratio), 170-degree viewing angle, and a super-fast 8ms (millisecond) response time, which minimizes blurring of moving images and is especially helpful for sports and action movies. Other convenience features include:
  • Picture-in-picture (PIP) enables convenient simultaneous viewing of TV programs and video or PC sources.
  • Built-in image scaler to handle inputs from a variety of digital and analog audio/video sources.
  • Parental Control (V-Chip) helps parents monitor what their children watch on TV by establishing rating limits.
  • Auto volume leveler keeps audio volume consistent during channel changing.
  • Multi-lingual on-screen displays in English, Spanish or French.

High-quality virtual surround sound can be experienced with just the speakers built into the sides of the TV. SRS TruSurround XT technology delivers an amazing, simulated 3D effect with clear dialog and powerful bass. It produces 5 watts of power per channel (for 10 watts total) and offers the following connection options:

  • Composite (RCA audio/video): 2 inputs (1 on the side)
  • S-Video: 2 inputs (1 on the side)
  • Component (Y/Pb/Pr): 1 input
  • HDMI: 2 inputs
  • PC: 1 D-Sub15 input
  • RF: 2 inputs
  • Sound monitor output: 1
  • Digital optical audio ouput: 1
  • Headphone: 1
  • RS232 port: 1

Tech Talk
HDMI is a lossless, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface to link any audio/video source (such as a set-top box, DVD player, or AV receiver) with your TV--all over a single cable. HDMI supports standard, enhanced or high definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable. It supports all ATSC formats--standard (SDTV), enhanced (EDTV), and high (HDTV).

TruSurround XT audio adds three new audio enhancement technologies to produce an amazingly immersive sound experience.

  • Dialog Clarity brings movie dialog into Focus during the playback of any surround-encoded material to make speech much clearer and crisper.
  • TruBass creates incredible deep rich bass allowing a person to perceive significantly deeper, richer low bass tones that are far beyond the physical low frequency capabilities of the speaker itself.
  • The SRS WOW feature widens the soundstage by processing standard two-channel stereo material as well as multi-channel encoded material for a dramatic improvement in the playback of any stereo audio over a two-speaker system.
Component video (also called Y/Pb/Pr) features a three-jack video input, which provides separate connections for luminance (Y), blue color difference (PB) and red color difference (PR). This results in increased bandwidth for color information, resulting in a more accurate picture with clearer color reproduction and less bleeding than you would get with S-Video or composite (RCA yellow video plug) connections. You will need a separate RCA left/right audio cable for sound.

Customer Reviews

The picture quality is very good.
Erica Nichols
Our cable box works flawlessly with this tv using an DVI to HDMI connector, which sends a pure digital singnal to the TV.
C. Gray
This made me buy another bigger(more expensive) antenna--It worked no better than Walmart's Phillips so I returned it.

This review is intended to be a little technical, so if you want an easy description of this TV, this would be it: it's a great TV with features most entry level LCD buyers are looking for: great contrast, decent response time, good color reproduction and an extensive jack panel including a FANTASTIC VGA PC connection.

Here's the technical break-down of what I think makes this TV great:
1.) It's an PVA (Patterned Vertical Alignment) LCD panel. PVAs and S-PVAs (not usually available in this size) are my favorite over the other two common LCD panels: TFT (Thin Film Transitors) and IPS (In-Plane Switching). TFTs (used most commonly by Sharp) boast excellent response/lag time (usually around 6ms); however, they suffer from the worst color reproduction and artifacting problems. IPS panels (most commonly used by Panasonic) can be thought of as the older predecessor to PVA panels. While they boast excellent color reproduction and moderate contrast, they generally have the longest response/lag times (usually in the range of 12ms). PVA panels (used by Samsung and Sony) offer the best of both worlds with excellent color reproduction (keep in mind, color reproduction also depends on the set's lamp), the best in contrast, decent response times (usually around 8ms) and excellent viewing angles (up to 178* on S-PVA panels).

2.) It's made by Samsung. Samsung and Sharp have long been the leaders in LCD panel technology, investing large amounts of money into LCD R&D. Samsung can take a lot of the credit for the dip in prices of larger LCD screens with the construction of their generation seven LCD plant (the generation number of a plant refers to the size of the glass panels they are able to cut to use in TVs). Samsung built the plant and Sony rents/shares part of it.

We just got this cd a week ago and so far we love it. It has all the connections that you need. As always if you want the best picture use the best connection, in this case the HDMI. Our cable box works flawlessly with this tv using an DVI to HDMI connector, which sends a pure digital singnal to the TV.

The picture is great. The colors are vibrant and have excellent contrast. This display is bright! Because our bedroom is dark and the tv is relatively close to our viewing area it almost hurt our eyes, we turned on the energy save to low level which decreases brightness and the display is still brighter then others I've seen. That means this TV should function well in well lit rooms as well.

If I had any compliants is that the sound quality and output level is not very high. In our case this isn't a problem because we have it hooked up to a mini-hove theatre system.

The HD picture is staggering. Watching sports or nature programs on HD channels almost mimic being there. I was truly amazed at the quality of the picture. This is my 2nd HD set and I thought my first TV had a great picture but this Samsung is by far superior to the set made by the famous Japanese company. Non HD programs appear very sharp compared to regular television sets. And it was a bargain.

I bought this baby a little over a month ago and it has yet to fail my any of my expectations. For just ~$800, I got a decent sized HDTV that just brings woas to my friends when they see it in my room. Its picture quality is great and when I hook it up to my laptop, it is exceptional. I use it occasionally as a monitor and it is crystal clear. (I just might never get off my bed.) When I watch DVDS on this TV, it is amazing and feels as if things could not get any clearer. I can't wait till the day every channel is HD. :D

The sound quality on the set isnt as bad as everyone said it was. It is very decent but I am thinking of adding a surround system just for my own personal preference. The TV itself is very sleek and very enjoyable to watch. It is very light and I can pick it up and move it around by myself.

One con I have about the system is the remote control. The buttons are located in the weirdest spots and it takes getting used to. It is really annoying to press the enter button all the way towards the bottom middle of the remote. And where the enter button usually is, there is a jump button that takes u back to the previous channel you were on.

There is also a couple seconds lag to turn on the TV and that bothers me a lot.

But for the price of the Tv, I am very glad I got it and am a proud owner of this set.

Verified Purchase
The picture quality on this unit is pretty good. Nice and bright with good contrast it looks just as good if not better than any other LCD in it's class. The unit itself is very stylish in mono-black and a gray bottom and the included stand is nicely modern. The TV also includes a cover for the hole into which the stand plugs into, which I find odd since now I have to carry around this extra piece in case one day I want to wall mount it. It should have come with the wall mounting kit.

Peak power usage is 110 watts and it has "power saving modes" that should save energy but the picture will be less bright. That's ok, I usually end up running it on high energy savings since it easily overpowers my light.

The dual HDMI inputs are great. I have a lot of consoles and A/V equipment usually all into the same TV and while I'm going to have to keep my composite and component switch boxes, it's nice to know that for now I'll be ok in the HDMI department. Loss of a dedicated DVI connector (one that wouldn't need an HDMI adapter) is slightly disappointing, though.

Others say the audio is average at best but I find it good for my usage. You *could* get an LCD panel that fits in the same volume with a bigger screen but it would have speakers hidden along the bottom and I can't imagine those being any better. At least with the setup out of the box with speakers on the side I get good spacial surround sound. It's nice having a 5.1 sound setup, but I find in everyday usage I just don't want to be bothered turning on another device.

Bad points? The remote control is horrible. I programmed a few additional devices into it and I find myself having to point pretty exactly in order to get them to work with it. I guess the IR LED on it is pretty weak.
