Best value 40-inch LCD TV

 

Experts and users say that the 40-inch Samsung LN40D550 provides solid picture performance and just enough features to keep things interesting. Picture quality is very good, highlighted by excellent screen uniformity -- a rarity among LCD TVs...

Good color, good uniformity, can stream movies, music and photos from a computer, good value

Dynamic backlight dimming can't be turned off, picture quality not quite as good as on more expensive sets, no 3D, no Internet streaming

Not a great TV

 

Would probably RMA if I could. I think that I could live with it, though, but I'm very disappointed in the picture quality. I would discourage putting it where you're close up. For the money, not worth it. I may have been more comfortable spending less...

Audio-out jack, Big for the room it's in, Sufficient ports for inputs. Gets the job done. Good standalone sound

Text rendering is very poor. It made me think that I needed glasses. Pixelation is poor on images. Movement on-screen is blurry

Good TV

 

The sound on this TV is better than what I got with my other TV hooked to my stereo. I can hear people talking much better and much more clearly. My friend's TV is over a year old with no problems.

Once you know what you're doing, the TV is easy to set up. A friend of mine got one a year ago, and I set it up. When I bought mine, I knew exactly what to do. Make sure you connect with an HDMI cable to get maximum effect. The TV has an excellent...

Make sure you choose the 'Source' first thing, before anything else. I kept choosing 'TV', and it didn't work. I had to choose 'HDMI'. This wasn't really self-explanatory or intuitive for me. Once the 'Source' is chosen, everything else is simple

Great buy

 

The sound quality is top notch, play aorund with the settings until you find one that works for you. If something doens't seem right, I'm sure there is a fix for it in menu options.

Best looking TV out there, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound Quality

A really nice TV

 

I'm not a television expert, but I needed a 40" flat screen to sit on top of the credenza in my living room. This one is perfect. The picture is really nice. There are a lot of connections (that I don't use) and the ABT guys set it up in a flash to...

ABT set it up quickly, Everything I wanted

I am pleased with the product

 

I bought the TV for my bedroom and love it. The only thing I was a bit dissappointed is that it was missing the cables for setting it up with no HDMI connection. At least these should be part of the package.

Missing the cables

Consumer review by: Dru (abt.com)

Good for the price conscience!

 

The TV was easy to set up and operate. There are no silly noises when you turn on or turn off this unit. The color could be a bit richer and the sound a bit bassier but not bad for the price. The only other "con" is where the HDMI connections are. They...

LED-backlit, Good Remote Control, Easy To Setup, Reduced Glare
