Samsung H40B

 

Samsung makes great TV'S and this one is definitely one of their best. Using as a monitor and i couldn't be happier.

Just the aforementioned HDMI ports. it has one on the side but the rest require you to plug in at a perpendicular angle from behind the TV.

Now this is a monitor!

 

This is being used as a computer monitor and all I can say is wow! Have had medical issues that have adversely damaged my sight, and my 27" monitor was just to difficult to read anything on. Even with adjusting the font size, which you can't do in...

Vivid picture Clean, clear text Easy to navigate on-screen menu

Would have liked an adjustable display stand for something of this size.

Yes, this is a monitor!

 

I began looking for a replacement for my dual 19" monitors a couple of months ago after one of them began showing signs of failure. Since I am no longer a spring chicken, I often found myself squinting and moving my head forward to see text with my...

Who needs to wait for 4k monitors! This monitor is available now, with a size which I believe is perfect for a monitor. This monitor could use more hype. Here's some of the high-lights ; Beautiful text ; Beautiful picture ; Low ghosting (acceptable for...

Nit-picking ; No standby before 2 hrs ; Thicker than most other current monitors ; Sound sounds hollow ; Need 90-degree HDMI and RG6 adapters if mounting to a wall

Great monitor

 

Am planning on getting another one to replace the 27" second monitor since a pair of 40's are always a "GOOD THING"! :)

Very crisp clear text display for use as a computer monitor. I use 8+ hours/day without eyestrain. Makes it easy to have an impromptu meeting to discuss server issues and everyone can easily see what is occurring.

Very disappointed

 

Damaged in shipping, packaging not very sturdy. RMA for item is more than a hassle. Willupdate review if, and dwhen, we receive a functional monitor.

Samsung H40B

 

If you are thinking of buying a large display to use a computer monitor, this is a great option. You can save a bit of money buying an HDTV and get a nice thin panel, but you likely won't be able to get the same picture quality you would find in this.

If you want a 40" monitor for a PC, this makes for a great option over using a standard HDTV. Since it is designed with use for a computer display, it uses 4:4:4 subsampling, which is important for viewing text. Most conventional TVs that exist now...

While the bezel is nice an thin, the display is somewhat thick by todays standards. Also, the HDMI inputs on the back of the unit face outwards on the back panel, instead of a vertical-style jack. The panel the jacks sit on is a bit recessed, so it...
