For the screen, Samsung's proprietary DynaFlat technology delivers a perfectly flat viewing surface with none of the curvature, image distortion, or detrimental glare that accompany traditional TV screens. Hook the set up with any DTV set-top box or progressive-scan DVD player to take full advantage of its high resolution and picture-enhancing technologies.
This particular 800-line screen brings higher resolution than that achieved by earlier-generation sets because the individual phosphor color spots (or pixels) are smaller and closer together in this configuration. The set's multiple-focus electron gun illuminates finer spots for a more detailed picture, edge-to-edge, and it's assisted in this job by a three-line digital comb filter and velocity-scan modulation circuitry.
Velocity-scan modulation improves the definition at picture edges, creating sharper images by slowing the CRT (cathode-ray tube) beam's horizontal scanning during demanding work--say, when rendering transitions from light to dark parts of an image--and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas.
Another set of image improvements is wrapped into Samsung's Pro Picture three-stage video correction: Total DSP (Digital Signal Processing), Pro Chip Plus (converts all interlaced analog signals to superior, flicker-free progressive scan images), and the above-mentioned three-line digital comb filter (which analyzes multiple lines of picture information to better minimize edge image artifacts while improving transition detail).
A shadow mask is a thin sheet of perforated metal behind the screen that restricts electron flow, each hole in the sheet corresponding to a single pixel. An Invar mask uses an alloy that's especially resistant to the high temperatures generated by the electron beam, allowing in a brighter, clearer picture.
Connections include a component-video input, an S-video input, a trio of composite-video inputs (with accompanying stereo analog RCA audio inputs), an RF input (for VCR or cable box), and a set of audio/video outputs for feeding a DVR or VCR. Convenient side-panel audio/video inputs foster hookups with camcorders and gaming consoles while preserving the set's uncluttered silver front panel.
A zoom screen-filling option lets you customize the view of letter-boxed DVDs from the supplied remote control, while screen-capture picture freezing lets you view still images, even with broadcast television. Convenient side-panel buttons let you configure the set and access its menus without having to use the remote.
The TXN2668WHF's 15 watts per channel (x 2) ensures sonic clarity and an ability to play loudly. Several sound modes offer dynamic audio settings for whatever you're watching; choose from standard, music, movie, speech, or custom. Surround-sound mode simulates an exciting surround effect from any two speakers, and a side-panel headphone jack allows private listening (headphones not included).

The remote takes a little getting used to, but if you are smart with your settings you can really squeeze the most features out of your system. Overall, this television ended up being perfect for my digitally-wired bedroom.
After two years the TV finally went on clearance, so I decided to pick it up. The only problem I have with it is when I first carried it down the stairs with my father. The television is heavy and bulky, but i could not be mad at the low price I got it for. Once situated the TV looks great.
The picture on the television is clear and great with my progressive scan DVD player. Movies come out with a clear and crisp picture. Movies in wide-screen do have letterboxes, but they are reduced and some I have watched even eliminated the box. The picture on regular cable looks fine as well. I would recommend high definition cable though if it is available. Setup was easy and quick.
From what I have read many consumers have experienced a problem with the picture having funny colors when the TV is turned on. This did not happen for me at home, or for the display at the retailer I work at. The television has not failed me for the half a year that I have owned it.
Overall, if you are looking for a wide-screen high-definition television with a low price, this one will meet your demand. The price of this television makes up for the bulky size. With a surround system, it creates a personal theater like performance. Make sure you have a space for it and enjoy.

Great HDTV for small rooms and the excellent price. No HDMI or DVI inputs, although the quality with Monster brand component video cables is stunning. Non-HD video is mediocre. Read morePublished on October 25, 2005 by Dennis Lindfors
