This is NOT a 120Hz TV. The refresh rate is 60Hz. A "clear motion rating" of 120 does not change that fact. It is unfortunate, to say the least, that this is being advertized by Walmart as a 120Hz TV. It is not nearly the bargain that it would be if it really were 120Hz. (FWIW, Samsung contributes to the confusion by listing 120Hz incorrectly on the title tab of this model's web page.)
Easy to Assemble to Stand, Easy to Hookup to Cable HD Box and to DVD player as well, Beautiful Picture Quality, .... No Negatives at All - I already bought a smaller version of the same TV for my bedroom, ...
This TV is advertised as a 120 Hz LED - it is not. I have a 7 year 32 inch Samsung with a better picture than this TV. Some pictures - too much color; others washed out - overall the TV picture is not crisp and clear. The speakers send the sound down - so you have to crank up the volume to hear. I'm going to return it and find a real 120Hz TV.
I was able to lift the box into the trunk of my car, unload it at home, unbox without a care, only need a medium Phillips screwdriver to assemble and had It up an running within 30 minutes. This included setup for my tv provider box and remote control.
I mounted this on a 360 mount and pic good from any angle
By and large I love my new Samsung 40 inch set; color is crisp and clear; set is very attractive and the price is terrific. BUT consumers should note some deceptive advertising by Samsung. The specs say the resolution is 1080p and something called the Clear Motion Rate[CMR] is 120; in other places it says the HZ is 120. Not so!! The HZ is only 60 which, technically, means the picture is not as crisp as it would be for a TV set with 120Hz.
When I came upon another reader who flagged the discrepancy, I did my own research and found a consumer Web site that said of this particular model: "Video processing: In case you were wondering whether the 120 CMR improves motion resolution to the level of a true 120Hz TV, it doesn't. In our tests the TV could only achieve the 300-odd lines that most 60Hz TVs measure, as opposed to the 600 lines of a typical 120Hz TV like the Panasonic E60."
That's a lot of jargon. But here's the bottom line: I find the crispness on my set just fine; indeed, for those looking to get more value for their Samsung, I absolutely recommend this TV!! I only wish Samsung wouldn't be so "cute" in its marketing.
One last thought. If I had known the HZ was only 60 instead of 120, I probably wouldn't have purchased this set. However, I truly cannot tell the difference. So ironically, I think I made the right choice. Perhaps I should do less research and simply enjoy this great TV, which I'm now doing.
I purchased this tv but took it back because I thought I was buying a smart tv. I took it back and was much more happy with the smart samsung for the same cost. The difference is that this tv is an ultra thin and the smart tv is 3.7 inches or 2x thicker but you can watch netflix, YouTube and go wireless with apps from your cable company.
You can't do any of that with this tv so I would recommend the smart tv over this one.
TV seems good but actually delivery was over a WEEK past stated date.
great for my needs. Only problem is it doesnt swivel.
This is a basic LCD TV, no bells or whistles, but perfect for my needs. The sound quality is much better that what I had been used to with previous flat screens.
I am enjoying this TV very much. Easy set up and they delivered it in two days!! No shipping cost when I ordered so if I had paid for an expedited shipping I would have thought I got my money's worth, but I paid $0 shipping and still got it two days later delivered to my home!
This product met my expectations and is a great value. This is my second Samsung TV and I also have a Samsung tablet. Great products.
picture is great
Excellent TV and price
Even though our HD isn't functioning yet we love our new TV. Our first flat screen and almost all my friends and family recommended a Samsung..so far so good.
We were fitting into an entertainment unit so size was very important. This set filled the opening. Sound is quite clear,. Overall we are satisfied with the choice.
Awesome picture and great value
I UPGRADED FROM A 28" OLD TV TO THIS FLAT SCREEN AND WOW THE DIFFERENCE., PICTURE QUALITY IS AMAZING! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THE NEW TV. SOUND IS GOOD OVERALL BUT WOULD PROBABLY BE BETTER WITH A SOUND BAR BUT I HAVE MINE IN A HOLE ABOVE FIREPLACE. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TV. VERY SLIM TV.
Samsung lives up to its name and meets the quality instilled in this brands expectations. Short of being a smart TV, I would highly recommend this TV for sport/action film/ and other fast changing frame to anyone. The picture quality is outstanding, even with or without HD programming. Looks great, sounds great, easy to use, highly recommend! Also, unbelievably light weight for moving around/setting up.
