Product Description

Samsung's sleek, Premiere Series TXN2668WHF offers everything from high-definition resolution (1080i/480p) to a multitude of inputs and picture enhancements for a detailed, high-contrast picture. The set's widescreen display is specially configured to accommodate the native aspect ratios of your favorite movies, and front-panel control keys let you access TV menu settings without having to use the supplied remote control.

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).

Greetings, I purchased this T.V. quite some time ago and I have been able to work out most of its quirks. From what I have seen the T.V. has 3 basic problems: 1. The color settings and the color red are way, way to high when you first start up this set. I found that I had to turn the color down to almost a 1/4 on the on screen display and in the red/green control I have it almost entirely green. After messing around with it for awhile I am quite satisfied with the results. 2. the second problems is that this T.V. isn't exactly top of the line. It lacks the 720 or enhanced T.V. options and does not support HDMI. However this T.V. does support 420p, 420i, and 1080i, so DVDs and HI-Def T.V. channels look awsome, and the widescreen is a really nice feature on this set. 3. The final problem is that if you have the T.V. set to have it display normal T.V. in the 4:3 ratio you get grey bars on the side of the T.V. but they are not always grey, depending on the brightness of the picture, on the screen, they sometimes shift between light and dark grey which can be distracting, you can strech the picture so you don't have the bars, but then the picture can look a little distorted. In conclusion, I feel that these are minor problems overall. If you can get this set for $400 or less, then that alone can override all the problems I just listed. This is a good set, it won't look as good as those 40+" plasma T.V.s you see in the stores, but if you compare price and features between them and this T.V. you can get alot for your money from this set. Thank you, and I hope that this review is helpful to you.

Having finally obtained an HDTV after enormous hassle with Amazon (anyone else notice all the fraudulent listings up here?) I ordered this particular television for around $400. Due to the negative reviews posted by other viewers, I was almost expecting something to be wrong with mine (mind you, I've had it for less than a week so far) but instead have found myself quite delighted with it. My model did not experience any color problems that others have reported, but looked crisp and richly colored. After setting it up with my 5.1 surround sound system, my 1080i HDTV tuner, my cable, and my HDTV antenna, I was able to sit in my smallish bedroom and be caught up in rapturous visuals and thundering sound (with the surround sound cranked up). Another neat feature was the nifty side panel which allowed for easy hookup to my computer (which has an S-Video out). I was headbanging to my massive MP3 collection and watching streaming broadband video on my new TV, and was almost in digital nirvana :-)

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.

I ordered this and received it very quickly. Upon plugging it in the color was extremely distorted and 'wavy'. I returned the set and requested a new one. When the second one arrived it was WORSE. There was no picture at all other than a very bright wavy rainbow across the screen. I tried all the degaussing hints and relocating hints etc. to no avail. No wonder the set has been discontinued.

Overall the television is excellent if a little large and heavy. The three component inputs and 1080i resolution are great features, and audio options are pretty good (but not near as good as a decent home theater). If you value screen size over weight and mounting options this is one of the better values for the price.

Working at a retail store this was the first wide-screen high-definition TV we carried. While working I would find myself staring into the clear picture that this TV had. At the time the television cost around $700. I knew this beautiful machine would eventually be mine.

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.
