The 30-inch Samsung TXN3071WHF HD-ready monitor offers a small footprint with a big picture. It has a 16:9 aspect ratio for cinema-quality viewing of your favorite movies, 1080i and 480p display formats, and Samsung's DynaFlat anti-distortion, anti-glare flat picture tube.

The TXN3071WHF is loaded with Samsung's Digital Pro Picture three-stage video processing system, which produces a high-performance picture from both analog and digital sources. The Total DSP (Digital Signal Processing) improves analog to digital signal processing, the Pro Chip Plus converts all analog signals to the better flicker-free progressive scan, and the three-line digital comb filter analyzes multiple lines of picture information to minimize edge image artifacts while improving transition detail.

The 3:2 pulldown cinema video processing detects and compensates film--which is shot at 24 frames per second (fps) compared with video's 30 fps rate--to video for a smooth theaterlike experience at home. This set also features an Invar shadow mask (an alloy material used to attain better focus and brightness consistency), color temperature controls, and four video presets (standard, dynamic, movie, custom) that optimize the picture for brightness, sharpness, color, and tint.

It has a built-in 181-chanel NTSC tuner that receives MTS and SAP stereo broadcasts. You'll need a separate HDTV tuner to receive high-definition broadcasts. Its built-in speakers have 15 watts of power apiece and it features a headphone jack on the side of the set. Two component-video inputs allow you to connect an optional HDTV receiver or a source with component-video outputs. It also has 4 composite A/V inputs (3 rear, 1 side), 1 A/V output, 1 S-video input (side), and 2 RF inputs (rear).

Tech Talk
Aspect ratio: The aspect ratio refers to the shape of the video image. Standard television has a 4:3 aspect ratio, which is almost square in appearance. Digital television will have either a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio, which is widescreen and appears rectangular, looking more like a movie screen and filling more of the viewer's field of vision for a more lifelike viewing experience.

Scanning method: Frames of video are made up of many lines of video that are scanned onto a television screen so closely they appear to be a solid picture. The scanning method can be either interlaced or progressive. Interlaced scanning (also used in today's analog TV), indicated by an "i" in the video format, fills in the odd number lines (1,3,5,7...) and then fills in the even number lines (2,4,6,8...) until the frame is complete. Progressive scanning, "p," fills in each line consecutively until the frame is complete, like a computer display.

Purchased the TV last month for the size and picture.
The Good: The picture is great in normal and HDTV mode and the size is awesome for me.
The Problems: A louder than average whining noise emanates from the TV, it flat out makes makes a racket. At low volumes under 10 you can hear it through programs which is very annoying. Samsungs customer service regarding this matter to date is non-existent.
Also, the salesman (At Best Buy) swore this TV didn't shut itself off with an energy saver, unlike the 30'Whdtv Phillips. Wrong, this TV does shutoff, timer or not, at inexplicable intervals the manual makes zero reference to the energy saving workings.
Overall very mixed about this TV.

I echo the remarks of the other review here regarding the confusing auto shut off feature.
Picture & sound quality are excellent (in fact we don't notice any of the sound mentioned by the other reviewer. We have remarked about how quiet the set is, in fact, at all low volumes.)
The manual refers to a feature, which can only be described as an energy saving device, which causes the TV to turn itself off if you don't touch any button on the remote or one on the set itself for 3 hours. What luncay!
This is the seventh day for this set in our house and I just pulled the box back from the curb in case I have to take it back to Best Buy.
I don't drive with my air conditioning on with the windows down, but saving energy is supposed to be the consumer's choice. If I want to run the thing at full blast while away from the set for 10 days that is up to me, not the agenda of some energy saving police. Absolutely ridiculous.
And if you try calling the customer service line you'll be in for a treat. A kid on the other end who is reading a computer version of the manual you received with the TV. When I asked for more help (on my third phone call - the first one told me to unplug the set which would reset the timer to the "factory setting" for 5 minutes, and the second which told me to do the same for an hour) I was told that a technician would call me back "this week". What?! I'll just sit here with my $1000.00 paperweight waiting for help from above, or take it back and buy something that let's me decide how much energy to use or not.
Oh, by the way, the timer (counting down to what God only knows) is loud enough to make you wonder if you have a bomb in your living room.

The other reviewers may have defective TV's because mine doesn't shut off inexplicably; However, it does have curved side bars when viewing in 4:3 aspect ratio (this is not corrected/affected by the tilt adjustment). Also, the left side of my screen is brighter than the right. I have a call in for repair of these problems.
What cannot be repaired is the poor design, no doubt to keep the cost relatively low: 1. no rear S-Video jack (just one in the side panel). 2. not magnetically shielded (my receiver on the shelf above was turning the top of the picture green). 3. seperate buttons on remote for vid1/vid2/s-vid/ant & component1/2/vid1/2. 4. no dvi input. 5. no picture-in-picture.
I was going to get the Sony KV-30HS510 but thought I'd save some money with the Samsung; Forgive me Sony, you are clearly worth the extra $500. (which is just 13 cents a day over ten years, which is how long my last Sony lasted) Would've been well worth it considering the stress I'm going through now.
