In the autumn of 2010, I was looking to upgrade from a primitive Sharp 19 inch LCD to a real LED TV. I had the money for either, but I chose to buy an LG over the Samsung for reasons of aesthetics, and because I wasn't sold on the glass encapsulated "touch of colour" style of the Samsung line. What I did not realise was the perfection of the technology I had passed up in preference of a more standard product of the time. The old LG is still a perfectly good TV, but I always wondered what I passed up in the Samsung.
So here I was in 2012 testing and reviewing cheap TV's for Walmart when I learned they had acquired a few refurbished 4000 series Samsung s and were offering at less than half the original selling price. Of course I ordered one. I will have to admit that the set seems a little dated compared to what the newest sets offer, but to have as a simple television set to watch over the air programs, I just couldn't ask for better. By the way; the "mod" styling of the cabinet still takes a while to get used to, but it is so worth the purchase. Understanding that these sets probably will not be offered again, to those of you who missed out I will say ; your loss.
