Consumer review (

pretty good


Not too heavy or too large (bought in-store, loaded into the truck, unpacked and setup myself). Eliminates need for delivery or assistance of 2nd person which may be the case with heavier sets.

Nice picture quality compared to our previous TV sets; it is much crisper even with non-HDTV signal. We have the HDTV DVR box delivered tomorrow and it will mean further improvement of image quality since I saw it running with HDTV feed before purchase...

The Sound Leveler function doesn't seem to work with our Time Warner cable box. Certain image distorsion (noticable only with TV Guide); not sure if it's the signal or the TV. Probably not serious enough for hassle with return/replacement.

Samsung = Quality


I have had this particular TV for about 2 months and have been nothing but pleased. The sound is great, with an equalizer balances and SRS Surround Sound to boot. The picture quality is excellent and with a built-in HD Tuner, I get NBC, ABC, FOX,...

Samsung TX-R2779H 27


(Edited April 26th by TomKrieger) I finally decided to go digital and buy an HDTV because my 27" analog/CRT color console TV picture was slowly fading away due to old age.

Good value with many features for an HDTV entry-level price

Picture color fidelity varies from channel to channel (input signal quality? or TV set capability?)

TX-R2779H 27" TV (Flat Screen, HDTV)


Only had the TV for a few days but so far the only complaint I have is the weight of the TV (darn heavy when lifting up on my bedroom wall mount TV stand).


Very Heavy

Balanced Performance vs Price


I've owned this TV for a month now and I'm pleased with my purchase. For my first HDTV purchase I had two requirements in mind: 1) Under $1000 2) Able to transport it cross country when I move in 6 months 3) Able to fit it into my entertainment center ...

A 'value HDTV.' Clean picture, accepts 1080i/720p with HDMI. 4:3 for SDTV with HDTV performance

4:3 so 16:9 content with black bars. Picture needs tweaking out of the box.

Accept these issues or buy another set


I chose this Samsung after months of store visits and web investigations. I settled on 4:3 over going 16:9 for the simple reason that I watch more cable TV than I do DVD and most of cable is still 4:3 and will be for some time to come, IMHO. While I ...

Great value in a HD 4:3 set for medium size room

Audio to video sync. Other issues correctable or liveable

Not the best but also not the worst.

Tons of inputs, intuative menu controls, slim fit

Slight bowing of stock and news tickers due to slim fit screen geometry issues.
