I'm happy


i'm very happy with my choice to step into the HD world. i got this baby on sale for the 4th of july. it was a great pickup. here almost half a year later and i'm pleased to see that the price isn't falling off dramtically. like i said a great way to...

Has a great picture for a 720p set, which is all you really need at this size. 42 is the smallest that you can really benefit from 1080p at. One of the cheaptest ways to go HD. don't waste the money on plasma/lcd if you don't absolutly need to hang it...

when you searching channels... eg over your antenna also selected that digital signal gets searched and then go though channels... you should get given above hd channels in digital format... watching world cup in hd is to die for.....

great tv, i did not buy it from newegg but from some other store... have hd channels like abc, wgdh, pbs and 2 other through a regular cable comcast signal.... its like a plasma, just slightly off... must buy

Excellent deal, and a real eye opener compared to others that are twice as expensive.

Excellent deal, and a real eye opener compared to others that are twice as expensive. Don't let people tell you that you won't like DLP. I originally wanted an LCD or plasma, but i'm DEFINATELY happy!

so far... none...

Samsung HL-S4266W 42


Black Grass: It's definitely noticeable when the picture is black.

Black grass was a non-issue. Rainbow effect was not noticeable. Lots of inputs.

Not being able to achieve 1:1 pixel mapping was a disappointment.
