Product Description

Amazon.com

Bring your home entertainment together with the 26-inch Samsung LNS2651D LCD television, which includes an integrated HDTV tuner as well as connectivity options for your PC and portable digital audio players. The thin-profile, piano-black LNS2651D will look great in any bedroom or home entertainment cabinetry. 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.
Featuring an LCD panel created in Samsung's state-of-the-art Gen 7 plant, the LNS2651D incorporate the latest cutting-edge developments in technology (as well as design). While viewing either very bright or very dark scenes, it can be difficult to distinguish main images which blend into the background. Samsung's Dynamic Contrast dramatically mitigates this problem by adjusting the backlight intensity, providing up to a 4x improvement in contrast. It offers support for a range of Samsung MP3 players and other portable digital audio devices, with an RS-232 port enabling you to navigate the player's content on-screen with the LCD remote by connecting the device to the TV via an RS-232 cable (included). Samsung also worked closely with Microsoft to create a special Game Mode that optimizes image quality, sound and response time for more realistic video game play--with just a single touch of a button. The Game Mode enhances dark areas, sharpens the picture, speeds up the image processing response and enhances the sounds of your games.


Get a great view from anywhere in the room with this TVs great verticle and horizontal 170-degree viewing angle.
The LNS2651D features a stunning 4000:1 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.

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. 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 TV. SRS TruSurround XT technology delivers an amazing, simulated 3D effect with clear dialog and powerful bass. This set utilizes Samsung's Dual Acoustic Chamber System technology, which isolates each woofer and tweeter in its own chamber. DACS is a revolutionary, computer-simulated technology that enhances lowrange sound performance, sharpens mid-to-high-range sound quality, and improves overall sound clarity. It produces 5 watts of power per channel (for 10 watts total). It 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.

And it seems great. OK, the analogue input may not be brilliant, but I don't think its worse that what I got on the older TVs we had. And the picture with the DVD with digital input is fabulous. Sound is fine also; the controls and the menus are intuitive and easy.

As long as it holds up, I'm going to be very glad I got this one.

Two small complaints: the manual left out something about hooking up the dvd that I found on the samsung website - you may need to change the player's mode of output if you are starting with component cables. AND it took me quite a while to find out how to use the codes for other devices. OK, you input them, but how?? And what was said doesn't seem to work. But given the quality of the set, I really don't count these as worth any minus points.

If you get stuck at some point, try the samsung website. Go to this model and look over at the right hand side of the screen and you'll see something like "TV help". Tons of standard questions, manuals, etc.

After much research and many trips to the big box stores, I bought the Samsung 26" HDTV from Amazon for use in a bedroom with viewing distance of 12 feet. Amazon's free shipping offer and no sales tax resulted in 25% lower cost than any walk-in store. Extended warranties are not recommended by Consumer Reports, etc, because these HDTVs have outstanding reliability, so that made me more comfortable with a no-warranty internet order. Amazon stated 5-10 business days shipping, but after just 2 days, the UPS guys were at my doorstep handing me the box. I attached the base and hooked up the set in about 30 minutes. It worked perfectly on my 90-channel non-HD cable service. A month later the cable company installed our HD box ($9/month rental) and the 20 HD channels are fantastic. The superbowl game was incredibly sharp. At first, channel switching was slightly slower than I'm used to, but with the HD box it is back to normal (fast). I chose Samsung for its brilliant picture quality. Once that was decided, my quandry was picture size. I started at 20", then 23", then settled on 26". Although the viewing is ok for a small room, 32" would have been even better, but it would have dwarfed our room. If you are undecided, go larger. The 16:9 HD format requires a much larger nominal size than the old 4:3 standard def. I am very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it.

First up, this TV is gorgeous! The piano-black finish really enhances the picture and brings out the deep blacks in the high-contrast images. The picture can't be beat (and I did a ton of comparison shopping -- in-store & online). The TV is super-slim compared to the competitors - its awesome to look at even when it's "off". Call me shallow, but I was concerned as to how the TV would look in my room & truth of the matter is that I couldn't be more pleased. I feel like I bought a piece of art!

Picture-detail and colors are amazing! Vibrant, crystal-clear images -- high-tech/theater quality. The menu is great too; its really user-friendly and allows a ton of options so that you can customize picture/sound settings to your meet your preferences. It's simple to set-up, so no need to hire a pro.

My only concern was the speakers; and I'm sad to say, they leave alot to be desired. I had hoped the 2 "hidden" 5 watt speakers would be sufficient for my small room, but they proved to be inferior. I hear a tinny quality and cannot discern any deapths between the tonal output. I was so unhappy with the audio that I upgraded by purchasing samsung's mid-priced home theater-in-a-box (Q45). After doing so, I have been very pleased & I'm really happy with that decision. Also, make sure to realize that if the speakers were not internal and tucked into the bottom of the set, it would not look as sleek and stunning as it does. The benefits of the 51D's sleek design outweighs all of these considerations!

The "glare" factor you may have read about in other reviews, has NOT proved to be an issue for me.

An excellent set depending on how you set it up and use it.

My criteria were:

- 24-27" Wide-screen 16X9 (for small sitting area off kitchen)
- High Definition
- Integrated HDTV tuner (ATSC)
- LCD flat panel with minimum 1366X768 resolution
- 8ms response time or better
- High contrast to counteract a well-lit area
- HDMI input(s)
- An excellent picture both in-store and in online reviews

The Samsung LNS2651D met them all. It's mated to an HDTV satellite receiver (with dish and rooftop HD antenna) and an HD upconverting DVD player. I'm currently receiving about 17 HD channels including the "major networks", HBO, Showtime, Discovery, TNT, and a couple of ESPNs. This is important because it covers a pretty high percentage of our TV time. If you're watching the CNN and the Weather Channel 90% of the time, this set's probably overkill...look for a 4:3 EDTV and save your money. On the other hand, if primetime major network is your thing, the ATSC tuner should give you a good supply of HD quality viewing without satellite so long as your antenna setup is up to the task.

This Samsung really shines in high definition, where many movies and shows leap out at you with an almost 3D image. It's wonderful with widescreen DVD, especially the HD or HD upconverting players. Colors are true, vibrant, and well-defined. Ghosting hasn't been observed, even in fast action sports, with the low response time. Contrast, brightness, and other video adjustments may initially be necessary to get an optimal picture, this is especially true with standard definition sources. Blacks are generally well done, with the caveat that some detail within blacks can be lost, especially if the overall scene is dark.
