    A winning 40-inch LCD at a reasonable price, August 17, 2007

    This review is from: Samsung LNT4042H 40-Inch LCD HDTV (Electronics)

    I did a ton of research on all different kinds of TVs, from DLP to LCD to Plasma, as well as Sony vs. Samsung vs. Panasonic, etc. I decided that I wanted to stay at about the $1,000 price range, which I thought meant that either I could get a smaller version of a really nice TV, or a bigger version of a not-so-good TV. As I found out, this wasn’t the case. I ended up finding a great TV for a reasonable price.

    I decided against DLP, partially because of the screen door effect (when you’re close enough, gridlines are very visible), and also because you have to replace a bulb every 6,000 hours or so (about every 3 years). Plus, DLP and LCD rear projection TVs only last about 40,000-45,000 hours. Compare this to LCD, which will last 60,000 hours (about 30 years) without ever having to pay for a bulb.

    I decided against Plasma, partially because of the burn-in issue, and the fact that they’re heavier and less energy-efficient that LCDs. I also believe LCDs have caught up in terms of picture quality.

    After looking extensively for about two months, the conclusion I came to was that this Samsung LCD had very comparable picture quality to the Sony and the Sharp, each of which would’ve cost several hundred dollars more for the same size. I decided on the Samsung after seeing many of my friends buying from them and being very satisfied with their purchases.

    I purchased it on sale at Ultimate Electronics for $1259. True, the price was lower on Amazon, but I didn’t feel comfortable buying something like this from an online store.

    Overall, I am very satisfied with the TV (as you can tell by the 5 star rating). It is an exceptional value, with a 7000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 3 HDMI ports. The sleek black frame makes this TV look beautiful even when it’s off. And when I play my DVDs with my Sony Upconverting DVD player (model DVPNS77H/B, $99 at Target), it looks absolutely amazing, producing a near-HD picture from a standard DVD.

    Here are my picture settings for watching movies:
    Picture: Movie
    Contrast: 80
    Brightness: 44
    Sharpness: 15
    Color: 56
    Tint: G54-R46
    Backlight: 9
    Color Tone: Warm1
    Black Adjust: Medium
    Dynamic Contrast: High
    Gamma: 0
    Color Space: Wide
    White Balance: 15 All
    Color Control: 15 All
    Edge Enhancement: Off
    Digital NR: Auto
    HDMI Black Level: Low
    Energy Saving: Auto

    Hope this helps you make a decision.

    This review is from: Samsung LNT4042H 40-Inch LCD HDTV (Electronics)

    I just got this TV set up in my home last evening and I couldn’t be more pleased with it. For an “entry level” LCD HDTV, it displays an excellent picture- even on the standard cable channels! The High-def channels are absolutely beautiful. Overall the picture is very crisp and bright (VERY bright at the factory back light setting of 10; had to turn it down a few notches) and the colors are perfect as far as I’m concerned. While I’m sure extreme videophiles will disagree, I can’t find any faults with this TV and would recommend it to anyone who’s in the market for a flat-panel HDTV in this size and/or price range.

    WARNING – FACTORY DEFECTS, November 9, 2009

    This review is from: Samsung LNT4042H 40-Inch LCD HDTV (Electronics)

    This TV has cheaply made, inferior parts that frequently fail after a year or two. For more info check [...] or just web search “samsung clicking sound” or samsung won’t turn on”.

    Basically, the cheap capacitors on the TV break after about 2 years of normal use. It leads to the TV no longer turning on. This can be fixed by replacing a few defective parts (they will cost about $1.50 each), but unless you are experienced with soldering electronic boards, you’ll have to pay someone to do it for you. Total cost will be around $200 through Samsung or your retail outlet, or you can take it to a repair shop and spend $50 to $100.

    Samsung is well aware of this problem and unwilling to help the hundreds of thousands of customers who have had to deal with this issue. Factory warranty is for 1 year, and the parts conviently seem to last around 2 years. Samsung will not offer any help other than overpriced repair.

    BTW – Based on my web research, this seems to be a problem with many samsung models, not just this one in particular. Buy Samsung TV’s at your own risk.

    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
