    I am amazed at how quickly the set arrived. Abt shipped it UPS right away. It arrived in days in perfect condition, as promised.

    Great picture for a low cost. Clarity and vibrancy is similar to that of our main 56" 1080p LED LCD. Outside of that, its basic. Very limited capabilities, lacking inputs/abilities to tandem with a laptop (ipad can go through hdmi with already owned adaptors), usb port only allowing jpegs and mp3s is kinda funny, as if it really costs Samsung that much more to install the software to handle mp4's etc..etc.. Wouldn't buy again, my mistake not thinking ahead. Got all excited about the price vs size vs picture and saw it had 2 hdmis, figured I could get the rest done. I do regret not returning this for a more capable tv within the time frame allotted, Looks like the same laziness I had when looking at this tv in the store struck again with me not taking it back. Would have been much happier with a smaller tv that had modern capabilities for connectivity. oops

        Comments about Samsung 40" Series 5 Black Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

        I only watch a limited amount of TV and so I didn't want to spend a lot for a new flat screen TV for my bedroom. I was thrilled to find this TV on sale as a floor model. The price couldn't be beat and it's a fantastic television. Definitely a good product for the price I paid.

            Comments about Samsung 40" Series 5 Black Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

            I am very pleased with the picture on my Samsung. It is actually much better than my prior HDTV, which was a no name brand. I think the clarity of Samsung is much better, and it feels like the characters on TV are actually in the room with me. I like that I can connect via HDMI with two ports (I don't need more than that - one for my blu-ray player and one for my cable box). I can always disconnect my blu-ray if I wanted to connect my computer to another device. The sound is also great from the speakers.

                      Great TV. Set up on my basement wall with a VESA mount. Works great. I watch Thomas and Friends with my son all the time and looks awesome. Nice bright colors, nice clear picture. ONLY drawback it it doesn't have enough HDMI connections OR audio output connections.

                                This is a replacement TV for my bedroom. Overall it is a very good tv. I gave it a 4 star rating because I had to try every possible STB & TV setting to get a widescreen picture without any "cutoff" information on the edges. The only aspect ratio setting that gives me an acceptable widescreen picture is 4:3 on the STB and 16:9 on the TV. Cable choice and source settings make little or no difference in picture quality. This is not a big issue with me because I do not subscribe to HD programming. I'm satisfied with the picture as it is. If I had it to do over, I would probably spend a little more for a set with more input/output choices including a audio output port. I recommend this TV for anyone looking for a good, economical TV with basic input/output options.

                                      Used in bedroom, so most of the time our eyes are closed. This is our third Samsung TV of this size, and we have no complaints of any of them.
