    Did a lot of research on TVs before I decided to get this one. Was not excited about the 120hz TVs; do not like the soap opera/camcorder motion. I was debating if I should get the internet options with the apps on the other models, but I have a PS3 so it wasnt worth paying for the extra features. So I got this 60hz LCD and I have no regrets! The picture this TV produces are amazing, especially on Blu Ray. I watched my New Zealand vacation videos on it and it really brings out the colors and makes my video look even more movie like. Avatar looks amazing on it as well. I got it for $640 and worth every dime.

    Upon breaking the LCD panel in my previous Samsung TV, the LN4065F, I sent myself to Amazon in quest of a new TV. I wanted another Samsung, since their build and picture quality seem topnotch, but I also wanted something relatively entry-level as a cheap means of replacing my older TV.

    The Samsung LN40C530 delivers in both departments, and with astonishing results. At under 700usd at the time of my purchase, this set provides an excellent picture with extremely rich colors. There is no problem with backlight bleeding or color inconsistency either. Compared to my older TV set, this one has more of a semi-glossy screen with some matte properties. Most people would view a semi-matte screen bad over a very glossy screen, but the matte elements in the screen do a great job of ensuring the colors this panel provide are very deep and saturated in well-lit environments. Having a very high contrast ratio helps a great deal of bit with color reproduction as well. At its default settings, the picture’s a a bit too sharp, so setting sharpness down to around 30s will produce more desirable/natural pictures. Compared to my older TV, the sound seems to be lesser, and not as deep, so I manually had to go into its equalizer and raise the lower hz rates up a little to produce satisfying results. This is fine for most people, but ones who play games under game mode for lower input lag are forced to use default audio, so they should think twice if sound is a big issue to them. A year later after getting this TV, I’ve hooked up a pair of PSB speakers with a Dayton T-Amp to provide a boost in sound fidelity.

    This TV doesn’t boast any of the newer technologies we see today in higher end TVs– such as 120/240hz, or led backlighting with or without local dimming– but this TV doesn’t need them. Almost all signals are capped at 60hz, and it’s up to the TV’s motion estimation interpolation to render false frames (which can sometimes lead to unwanted artifacts/effects) True 120hz won’t be taken full advantage of until everything is broadcasted at a native 120hz rate. Led local dimming seems nice, but this TV already is very bright, and shows no signs of backlight bleeding (blacks could be a little blacker, but that can usually be fixed by setting HDMI black level to low– if wanted) Besides that, there’s little reason to be a stickler for very deep blacks if the TV shows no sign of backlight bleeding/clouding.

    In terms of build quality, for an entry level TV, the LN40C530 looks and feels like a higher end tv. The bezel is small and compact (as well as a slimmer depth than my old TV: 3.1inches compared to 3.8inches), while Samsung included a row of touch sensitive buttons on the bottom right– very akin to Sony PS3’s power/eject buttons. One thing I am a bit disappointed in is the lack of Samsung’s trademark lighting effect on the bottom center of the bezel, but the blown glass-like design of the clear plastic under the bottom bezel looks very nice. Even though Samsung says this TV doesn’t come with a touch of color feature, you can make out a very faint amount of red accent in the very bottom of the TV. The remote is another letdown for me, as the general look to it is very cheep compared to my older model. Thankfully, the older remote works on this new TV as well.

    As for the general consensus: If you’re in the market for an entry level HDTV with amazing picture, you need not look further than this great piece of kit Samsung has introduced.

    I haven’t bought a television in 13 years and I wanted to make sure I got one that would last me at least another decade without breaking the bank. I did my homework and waited patiently for a price dip on a Samsung, which all the reviewers say are the best. I picked this one up for just over $600 and I’m so happy with it! Personally, I’m not interested in the technology race–I just want great picture quality and a set that is reliable and easy to operate. That’s precisely what this is, with a fair amount of bells and whistles to boot.
