PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS & FEATURES (From Samsung)
Samsung's LN-T4061F Full HD 1080p 40"" LCD TV enhances any room with a startlingly realistic picture when it's on – and offers a slim, elegant cabinet design when it's off. A remarkable 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and over two million pixels create super clear images with brilliant colours. Samsung's Wide Colour Enhancer expands colour expression, especially the blues and greens even in bright areas. Audio is equally impressive, with the SRS TruSurround XT sound system generated from the hidden bottom speakers. Perfect for any living room, den or great room, the ultra wide 178° viewing angle of the SPVA panel and convenient swivel pedestal allows you to enjoy TV viewing from any position.
So what do you get when you pay out US$1400-$1550 dollars to get this TV?
First off, you get a REALLY large box so make sure you make suitable arrangements to get this TV home. this isn't the package you can throw in the back of your hatchback. But I do have to say, although it is big, it is relatively light. LCD monitors are always a lot lighter than Plasma TVs. A 42 inch plasma is a full job for two full grown men to tote and setup.
First out of the box is your usual owner's manual complete with warranty registration and warranty paperwork. Let me inform you of one thing, and that is to keep the owner's manual close at hand to aid in you exploring the features of this TV. There was some features I didn't even know this TV had until I was having my morning coffee and was thumbing through this manual in the office. It will surprise just how much you don't know about this TV.
Although the TV is large, don't expect a huge hardware bundle. As seen above, you get a lint-free cloth for cleaning the TV's glossy black surface, a remote control complete with batteries and a power cord. The black door to the right is used to fill in the void created if you decide to take off the TV base and utilize a wall mount.
I won't go to much into the universal remote, but it is complete and full featured and is able to control 5 different multimedia items regardless of brand. Other than that, it is just like any other remote control. Everyone has used one and this remote is exactly the same other than some small differences which can easily be picked up through day to day use. As always, consult your owner's manual for any questions arising. It will do a far better job than anything I would be able to convey through a review.
And last but not least is your 40 inch HD 1080P LCD TV. This photo does and excellent job showing you the glossy piano black finish that seems to be popular in the computer and consumer electronics market today. Although it is quite beautiful, it is a fingerprint magnet and tends to show dust a little more than I would like to see. I also would like to note dull LCD screen itself. This is why this TV is great in brighter rooms, it literally neutralizes any reflections you might see if you had a plasma model.
