    About that base . . ., May 19, 2011
    Christopher Grant (Salem, UT USA) –

    Putting together the base was fairly straightforward for me. At no point did I feel that I had to overtighten the screws in order to keep things from wobbling. The one glitch is that (in English, French, and Spanish) the instructions for assembling the base have the labels for the front and the rear switched, so that the pedestal is alleged to be closer to the front of the base than the rear, contrary to what published photos of the assembled product indicate. I don’t know if this mislabeling is what has given people problems with the base, or if Samsung used to ship worse-fitting hardware than it does now. In any case, I’m glad I didn’t let the complaints about the base hold me back from purchasing this item.

    I’ve owned this set for less than 24 hours, but perhaps some initial impressions will be helpful to other shoppers:

    1) I spent over half an hour wandering through an electronics megastore comparing pictures and I have to say that I couldn’t detect any advantage of 1080p over 720p for sets of this size. (I assume that a store this big was feeding in some 1080p content, but I could be wrong.) At home, over-the-air 720p and 1080i content looks great on this set.

    2) While the LED sets are sleeker than the LCD sets, I didn’t think that the LED picture was any better. Both I and one other customer in the store were vacillating between the Samsung UN32D4000N and this set, and we both ended up opting for this one.

    3) Some review sites represent these LCD sets as having narrow viewing angles. To my eyes, that was far from true, as almost every set in the store had a picture that was easily viewable from far to the side.

    4) Buyers’ guides imply that we all now need sets that are twice as big as the sets we were buying a few years ago. In particular, a 32-inch set is all of a sudden considered far too small for a living room. Well, I think this set looks good in my living room. It’s nice not to have my house look like my life revolves around television viewing.

    5) If there’s a way to have this set memorize channels from two different antenna positions, it wasn’t obvious to me. Fortunately, on my 3rd or 4th try I was able to orient my antenna so that the set located all my local channels on one scan.

    6) At this set’s current price, you run very little risk of buyers’ remorse.

    Excellent picture quality, mediocre audio at best, May 11, 2011
    J. Hetherington (St. Louis) –

    1) As noted in other reviews attaching the stand to the television is challenging and will require much more force than you would believe necessary.
    2) Owners manual is not very thorough nor are instructions very clear
    3) Attaching the securing strap(not included) on the back of the televsion to your stand involves creativity & parts of your choosing, as there are no instruction.

    1) Excellent video quality for 720P/60Hz
    2) Attractive / aesthetically pleasing appearance
    3) Nice menu layout and features
    4) (2)HDMI’s & (1)USB

    For anyone experiencing problems with the picture quality this television has a built in picture & audio test. To implement the test(s) you will need
    to press;
    1)The Green Menu Button near the center of the remote
    2)Use the UP arrow to scroll UP one to where “Support” is displayed vertically along the left edge of the set
    3)Arrow to the RIGHT Once
    4)Arrow DOWN once to “Self Diagnosis”
    5)Press Enter or the button in the middle of the four arrow keys
    6)Select Either “Picture Test” or “Sound Test”

    The picture test displays two children on a beach surrounded by some beach toys, it displays very vibrant colors, blues, oranges, yellow as well as strong sunlight contrast
    to check the black and white balance of the set. My test image appears incredible.

    The sound test plays some type of theme song music that I personally find annoying yet it also provides very clear, stereo sound and does so at the volume level your set is
    set to at the time of the test.

    Unfortunately because the owners manual is so lacking it takes time to learn all the settings and adjust them appropriately. Yet once you have the picture quality of this television
    rivals any 32″ television I have ever seen, bar none.

    Another great Samsung., April 17, 2011

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    Coming from an LNT4061, LNT4069, and, most recently, an LN40A650, I’d happy to say that this TV has yet to disappoint. The Samsung quality is all there and it feels considerably evolved from the previous generations I’ve owned. I’m using this as an office monitor and television – for both occasions, it’s a terrific set. The colors are vivid, the sound is crisp, and I have yet to experience any issues with it. I’d also note that this television, while considered the entry level for 2011, is slightly thinner and substantially lighter than other 32″ models within the Samsung product lineup and other companies’ models within the same price range. There ARE thinner and lighter 32″ TV’s, but you’ll spend an additional $150+ just for the size difference. This was a deciding factor in my case, since I wanted an easily wall-mounted TV without breaking the bank. I’d highly recommend this particular model for anyone looking for a bedroom/office television. It’s just the right quality and size at just the right price.
