Most Liked Negative Review


Too Few HDMI Inputs - No AnyNet+

Beautiful picture and pretty good sound for internal speakers. Only two HDMI inputs is weak. Not automatically syncing with my Samsung blu-ray player via AnyNet+ is very weak.

Received defective TV


from Tucson AZ  -  Enthusiast

Received defective TV out of the box and neither Samsung nor Adorama will claim responsibility and rectify this issue.


Bad Audio


from Mississippi

At slightly above normal sound the speakers sound like they are rattling around loose in the housing.

Nice TV!


from Rio Rancho, NM, USA

Nice TV, did not need a Smart TV, so this one met my needs perfectly. It was fairly easy to install, and the set up was not too hard. The fine print on the paperwork that comes with the unit is kind of hard to read, but all the answers are there. Did not need to contact anyone. Rather proud of myself. The troubleshooting guide on the website seems pretty comprehensive if need be, and any updates or manuals can be downloaded right there. Good job Samsung.

Good Product


from California

I recently purchased Samsung's 40 " LED, HD t.v. I am really enjoying this television. It has good sound, excellent picture and the size is perfect for me. Also, it is "energy efficient." This is my second purchase of a Samsung television and I highly recommend their t.v.'s.


Good all around features.


from Massachusetts, USA

I had another brand but after seeing this TV Samsung is my new love.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

kris c  I have read some comments elsewhere about Sharp panels being used by Samsung. Is this 40" tv a Samsung panel?
ACCOUNTS P  Honestly have no idea. It says samsung on the TV. I bought two of them, and have one at home. They've been great.
David S  What is the warranty period and what does it cover, and how is it completed? Tech to home or what?
Andrew R  Warranty period is twelve months. Warranty details may obtained from Samsung's website for this product.
warren m  Will this 40in HD LED Samsung TV work as an equivalent to a Computer-PC MONITOR? What are the connections and drivers that will be needed for that? Will that also make use of the TV's own speakers? How far away should you be if attempting to use it as a monitor (especially if I'm editing documents and/or photoshop images? Thx, Warren.
TIM X  I used it as a PC Monitor for a while and had no problems. Simply plug in your hdmi cord from your pc to your tv and you'll get sound from the tv. Don't sit too close though because you'll really notice the pixels.
