Auto Motion Plus
Auto Motion Plus

Faster Frames for a Clearer Picture. This technology doubles the frame rate from 60 to 120 frames per second (120Hz LCD panel) without repeating the same image to make more frames. Instead, the TV intelligently calculates the 'middle' image between frame A and frame B and inserts it in between (Auto Motion Plus 120Hz processor), making a fluid transition from one frame to the next.

USB 2.0
USB 2.0

With the WISELINK USB connection, you can listen to mp3s or display photo/image files from your digital camera, or USB memory stick. In addition, USB 2.0 supports high speeds of up to 480 Mbps which is 40 times faster than the speed of USB 1.1.

HDMI-CEC

As CEC means Consumer Electronic Control, CEC system intelligence carries device control functions between all connected HDMI (CEC enabled) A/V devices. When you connect A/V devices like Blu-ray Disc Player, AV Receiver, or Home theater with HDMI cable, you can control all of them with one-touch control and a single remote control.

Full 1080p

I received my 4069f about 10 days ago and just hooked it up after Direct TV installed my HD dish on this past Saturday. I have the Direct TV DVR and it came with an HDMI cable. I first noticed a problem when watching football. On a far shot when the ball is going through the air you see multiple balls. I then noticed trails when watching Law and Order. When someone turned their head you would see trailing. I called Samsung and they stated there is a known issue with this model and I require a firmware update to get rid of what they called triple ball effect. How do they ship out a product with such a major flaw is beyond me but hopefully the firmware upgrade will correct the problem. They ship it out to you on a thumb drive and then you plug it into the USB port. I will post what happens after I receive and install the upgrade.

Update 12/28/2007:

Okay after writing this review I started to read the reviews for the Samsung 4071f and noticed users were experiencing some of the problems as with my 4069f unit. There was a good bit of talk about the 120hz being a problem and basically useless. I went into setup and turned off the 120hz option and poof the ghosting on tv shows like Law and Order and CSI vanished. Samsung support had me turn off digital noise reduction previously. If I turn either option on the ghosting appears but with them off the picture is great. However, the triple ball effect (TBE) is still present when watching football. I should receive the firmware update in the mail today or tomorrow so hopefully that will remedy the TBE problem.

Update 1/16/2008:

Okay, as I said in my last update, turning off the Auto Motion Plus 120hz cured most of the problems.

Samsung LNT4069FX 40" 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV
If you are looking for a 1080p with 120Hz refresh rate, this is the right choice. I had this TV for about 2 weeks and I am absolutely satisfied.
It is a light, very nice looking TV. Has an amazing matte screen (less reflective) and has all the features you will need for the future.
The standard HDTV is still 720p on cable, but this TV is 1080p and has a refresh rate of 120Hz, that allows perfect showing of movies (120 is a multiple of 24, the number of slides per second in a film).
The speakers are good and I feel no need for buying new ones.
has a USB port where you can put a flash drive to see pictures or play music.
Even the regular TV signal (480) looks fine.
Great TV and great Shipping company (eagle) with a great service.

The people at Sony will not like this post. I have been a loyal Sony TV buyer since 1978. I have owned three XBR models. (Remember the one with the foot pedals?) And, yet, I just returned my 40W3000 and decided to go with a Samsung.

I could not afford the 40XBR4 and considered buying a heavily discounted XBR2. But, the comments in this forum suggested that it would be better to go with the 40W3000 due to some regular improvements. I also wanted to avoid the XBR2 clouds issue. So, I studied the W3000 at the store and it looked good on the wall.

I got the W3000 home and connected it to my Comcast DVR via HDMI and to my Panny DVD player via component video (480i). I do not have a game player and I have not jumped into hi-res DVD, yet. So, to be fair, I am dealing with a 1080i Comcast input and a 480i DVD input. I cannot tell you about a 1080p input.

With great anticipation, I turned on the w3000 and I did not get a WOW. The colors looked muted and the people looked pale. My daughter said that there was an unnatural green tint to the picture -- and that the greens looked artificial. But, I saw in this forum that all the calibration choices and began the process. I re-seated the cables and tried different inputs.

Now, for the great test. Fortunately, I still owned my 32XBR400 set! I could do a side-by-side comparison on the identical video feed! I hooked up the Comcast box to the XBR tube TV via component video and the new 40W3000 by HDMI.

My goal -- get the new set to have the same quality picture as my eight year old tube TV. Could it be done?

Well -- I spent days on it with no luck. I tried several settings from the spreadsheet, a couple of others in the forum, and some choices by myself.

I spent two weeks in researching the best TV I can find under $2000. I looked at various TVs including Plasma, DLP, LCDs at Bestbuy and Frys and read lots of reviews on different websites before making a final decision.

Arguably, LCD is the best technology these days and Samsung and Sony are the leaders in this space. Among all the LCDs out there LNT 4069 is the best with unbelievable picture quality. You have got to watch NFL and NBA games in HD on this TV. Once you have this TV don't try to play too much with the Default settings. For your cable channels, TV will adjust the screen size according to quality of the signal.

I've been researching LCD TVs for a couple of years now, and finally decided to pull the trigger in early December on the LNT4069FX based on its technology and very good reviews. Upon receiving the set I was pleased to find that the out of the box experience was a lot better than what I expected. Every other system I've set up for friends and family involved the TV looking pretty mediocre or horrible when first plugged in, and then after tweaking looking either good or great. This TV looked pretty good right after the first power on. After tweaking the picture is stunning.

A few things I really like:

1. Very tweakable. It remembers the settings for each individual input, and depending on what mode you have it on (dynamic, standard, movie) it allows you complete control over every feature, whether on/off for some, or some nice color and white balance controls. If you are into tweaking you can go pretty nuts with this set, however as stated above, out of the box it looked pretty darn good.

2. 1080p and 120hz. This is the highest resolution tv you can get as a consumer and it probably will be a for a while. It is also the same resolution as the high def disk formats so you don't have to worry about scaling when watching your new expensive HD disks on your new expensive HD player. The 120hz means it can play back 30/60hz broadcast media and 24hz film media natively. After deinterlacing it either doubles the frames for 60hz or pen-tuples the frames for 24hz, which can help reduce 'judder' effects when watching film sources with a 60hz only tv. It even has the AMP feature to interpolate and add information so you get something similar to a full 120fps experience, although I'll get into more detail on that later.
