The Samsung LN40C630 40-Inch 1080p 120 Hz LCD HDTV offers the consumer the full high definition package with 1080p resolution. Of special appeal to those desiring to live green in today’s world, this set actually exceeds Energy Star standards.
Special features of this product include 120 HZ technology which allows the viewer to witness fast action with an increased smoothness and clarity than ever before. This gives the sports enthusiast happy smiles.
Dark areas are enhanced when in Game Mode, as well as sound and image response times.
Consumers can also connect a thumb drive or digital camera to access videos, music, and pictures via the remote control. Plus, there is the AllShare feature, which allows users to hookup a wired or wireless DLNA to computers in order to stream audio and video files. This is also controlled through the remote. The setup for this is a bit more complicated, and users may have some difficulty before getting it up and running to their satisfaction.
This unit has 4 HDMI inputs, 2 USB connections, and Anynet+ option which allows peripheral devices to be controlled by the Samsung remote.
The picture is terrific, with vibrant details and good backlighting options. It may take some trial and error to get the picture to the user’s ultimate liking, however.
As is often the case, the issues seem to come with the sounds. Flat screen televisions of any size don’t tend to handle the audio very well. There have been issues with this. Finicky listeners may want to invest in external speakers to obtain that perfect surround sound experience.
