  • A. If your computer supports HDMI or component output then yes. I don't recall that it has a VGA port on the TV. If you want video and sound on the TV, then you would need to use HDMI or Component connections.

  • A. There are three ways to connect your PC or Mac to your Samsung TV for monitor functionality: monitor cable, HDMI to HDMI or HDMI to VGA/DVI/Displayport. Please note, in the PC's operating system, you will need to set the display settings to either clone or extended view and set the PC’s resolution to match that of the maximum resolution of the TV in order to view your PC's desktop on the TV. Although all of these connections are easy to hook up, the PC monitor cable is the most common. To connect it this way, just use a standard PC monitor cable to connect from the monitor out of your PC to the PC input on the TV. Some adjustments to the PC's resolution is required. If your PC offer HDMI out, I would highly suggest using this connection, since it is a basic plug-n-play connection (meaning almost no adjustment is needed on the TV or PC). HDMI to VGA/DVI/Displayport is almost the same as straight HDMI, but in this case, you will want to connect the DVI end of the cable to the PC (if available) and the HDMI into the TV. This is also considered a plug-n-play connection. Unless otherwise specified by your PC manufacturer, you will need to connect the PC's audio to the TV with a separate cable (3.5mm jack cable from the PC’s audio output to the TV’s DVI/HDMI Audio input), since most PCs do not support audio over HDMI, VGA or DVI. Additionally, the Samsung TVs do not offer wireless or networked monitor capabilities. Thank you for the opportunity to assist you, -MrSamsung

Having recently purchased and returned a Hannspree 42" HDTV, citing audio and video lag while playing my X-Box 360, I wasn't sure what to expect from this--or any--HDTV's compatibility with video game consoles. I was told that most Samsung HDs have a gaming mode that overrides graphic processors to allow for seamless gameplay. So when I walked into Best Buy and this model was on sale for $550, I went for it. No lag at all! Great news for any interested gamers. Also, the stock speakers will rock you. I was pleasantly surprised. If I had a gripe about this TV, it'd be the picture quality. I know that sounds crazy. Samsung televisions are well known for their quality displays, but having come from the hannspree to this, I have a hard time convincing myself that this samsung's picture is better. Another thing that gets on my nerves is there are no coaxial inputs. After all is said and done though, this TV is a steal at $550. Wal Mart will price match a valid advertisement if you prefer to shop there. I'm very happy with my new samsung. Hope this helps.

I paid a little more for the Samsung but in the long run it is well worth it! Wonderful picture and the sound is so superb over the other models. The sound is so much better than on my Vizio! It was easy to set up. I would recommend this TV to anyone!

Customer review by Hamfat

Of course, Samsung is the brand the others compare to - and this one holds up to close scrutiny. The value of features and quality for the price can't be beat by any I've found. The HD picture is sharp at default settings and is fully adjustable to your own preferences for light and color levels, effects, and screen size format. The sound is surprising for an LCD flatscreen which are not typically known for sounding especially good; this one has 10w speakers bottom mounted which provide adequate full-range sound in a large normal room. As an older person I appreciate the several available sound profiles - Clear Voice is the one I use - which adjust frequencies rather than just making it louder or changing speaker balance; as we age our hearing starts to miss the frequencies which this setting accentuates. There are also 4 ports for home theater, blue ray, or gaming applications if you so choose, you can connect it by cable to your PC and you can also link all your Samsung electronics directly through the system. The full year on-site repair warranty for parts and labor is as good as you'll find in the industry, and there are several places you can extend the same terms for additional years at a reasonable price. I'm impressed on all counts with the set, down to small details like the stylish design, low-glare screen, swivel stand and simple set-up using on screen help. I understand the live Samsung setup support is highly rated although I didn't need to use it. I did read an online featured review in a respected TV electronics magazine and fine-tuned my adjustments to the editor's suggestions which were a decided improvement over the factory defaults, but even those were superb. This is a winner and Walmart made it easier than anyone else with online purchase and Next Day Pickup.

I looked everywhere, and I mean EVERYWHERE for the right 40 inch LCD tv. Hundreds of reviews were very confusing as seemingly you can find someone to find something wrong with every tv on the market. Finally settled on Samsung as they and Sony are of course tops in this area. Absolutely no regrets. Picture quality is great. Sports are no issue. Just a great TV.

This is a remarkable TV, with outstanding picture quality and very good sound tone when Tru-sound is adjusted. From taking it out of the box until I was watching HD TV was less than 30 minutes and I'm no technical wizard. I immediatley hooked it through my Wi-Fi router and added the Samsun Wi-Fi adapter purchase separately and immediately has Smart TV synced up with my home PC. I have been very pleased and would highly recommend it to anyone. I also own a Vizio that has a great picture, but it does not even compare with this outstanding Samsung unit. I also love the 40" screen. Truly impressive.

Bought this Samsung HDTV in 2010 believing Samsung was the best for TVs and the price was amazing at the time as well.But after a month or so the picture quality started becoming hazy and cloudy in the background making any darker movies very unpleasant to watch so i called the warranty i purchased separately to have them repair it and it turns out it needs a whole new panel(screen) and circuit board which is nearly 70% of the entire TV good thing i bought the 3 year extended warranty from walmart for 88$ because the repair person said it's costing them nearly 300-400$ in repairs for a TV i bought for only 550$ on sale . Its very inconvenient to get it repaired taking nearly a month in total. never again im buying a Samsung TV im switching to LG and Vizio and Mitsubishi TV's

This is the tv to get. Its has the picture quality and sound I was looking for. You don't need all the setting adjustments the other tvs have, this one just seems to know. Super easy hook up with all my components and cable.My last samsung was twice as expensive, same size, with not as good of a picture. Get it while it last cause they may quit making this. It works too good!

As the saying goes for Mcdonald's.....I'm loving It. I initially purchased a 40 inch Sony Bravia TV and was disappointed in it. So much so, that I immediately took it back to Walmart and traded it in for this Samsung HDTV. I have no regrets about my decision. WOOT!
