Touch of Color

Touch of Color Inspired by designs from the automotive and fashion industries, Samsung¡¯s unique unique Transparent and Opaque Color molding process creates a clean, smooth finish infused with a hint of a translucent color during the manufacturing process for an ultra-sleek appearance.


InfoLink

Touch of Color Up-to-the-minute access to weather, news, sports and stock information is just a cable and a click away through the HDTV¡¯s Ethernet port and new InfoLink RSS service. An all-new user interface with digital contents management guide provides intuitive navigation and access to both internal and external content.


Auto Motion Plus 120Hz

auto motion plus 120Hz This technology doubles the frame rate from 60 to 120 frames per second (120Hz LCD panel) without repeating the same image to make more frames. Instead, the TV intelligently calculates the ¡®middle¡¯ image between frame A and frame B and inserts it in between (Auto Motion Plus 120Hz processor), making a fluid transition from one frame to the next.

Super Clear Panel

Samsung enhances the clarity of select LCD HDTVs by replacing the light-diffusing plastic face of traditional LCD HDTVs with a? natural black panel with a clear anti-glare shield. Reduced reflection of external light creates a new dimension in image clarity, highlighting black and darkened areas, enabling vibrant, more compelling colors and a brighter, clearer picture.? Black will never again appear grayish. Black details will show in vivid black even in dark scenes.

The latest version of Samsung¡¯s breakthrough super clear panel technology makes colors appear more vibrant and blacks even deeper than ever. Enhanced films reduce glare and optimize off-angle viewing.

Wide Color Enhancer/Cold Cathode Flourescent Lamp

The NTSC (National Television Systems Committee) has established the color standards all TVs in America try to meet. And typical LCD TVs only meet about 72% of this standard. Samsung LCD HDTVs use Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp backlights to give you 92% coverage of the NTSC standard, ensuring truer, more breathlessly vivid colors.

Samsung¡¯s exclusive Wide Color Enhancer technology delivers more brilliant colors, even in bright areas of the picture where blues and greens are washed out on conventional screens. The system displays wider color reproduction, showing you truer colors ¨C the fresh green of spring foliage, the intense blue of the summer sky.

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA)

DLNA logo

dlna daisy chain
You already know something about digital living. There¡¯s the TV and digital video recorder in your family room. (And another set in your bedroom.) You have a PC and digital printer in your office, along with a network attached storage device. And you¡¯ve copied all your music onto your portable music player and haven¡¯t had to open a CD case for years. But getting them to talk to each other can be pretty tough. Why is it still so difficult to send digital content from one device to another?

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a collaboration of the world¡¯s leading consumer electronics, PC and mobile companies that has created design guidelines for a new generation of products that can work together ¡ª no matter the brand.

Think for a moment about all of the photos "locked away" on your home PC that you wish you could access while entertaining your friends and family. Now, thanks to DLNA enabled devices, a DLNA-enabled PC can be accessed from the comfort of your living room or family room via a DLNA-enabled HDTV, where you can enjoy your memories with friends and family, without having to deal with the hassle and non-intuitive "PCexperience".

Or, say you recently downloaded your daughter¡¯s birthday party video from your digital camcorder to your PC. Now you want to share it with your parents who are visiting. Without DLNA, you probably have to burn a DVD of the video or hook up the camcorder to the TV. With DLNA, you can just use your TV¡¯s remote to call up the video on your TV. That¡¯s it.

Audio Features

TruSurround is a patented SRS technology that solves the problem of playing 5.1 multichannel content over two speakers. TruSurround delivers a compelling, virtual surround sound experience through any two-speaker playback system, including internal television speakers and headphones. It is fully compatible with all multichannel formats up to 5.1 channels. High-quality virtual surround sound can be experienced with just the two hidden, downward-firing side-mounted 2.2-channel dome speakers built into the TV.

SRS TruSurround XT technology delivers an amazing, simulated 3D effect with clear dialog and powerful bass.

TruSurround XT audio also adds three audio enhancement technologies to produce an amazingly immersive sound experience.
  • Dialog Clarity brings movie dialog into Focus during the playback of any surround-encoded material to make speech much clearer and crisper.
  • TruBass creates incredible deep rich bass allowing a person to perceive significantly deeper, richer low bass tones that are far beyond the physical low frequency capabilities of the speaker itself.
  • The SRS WOW feature widens the soundstage by processing standard two-channel stereo material as well as multi-channel encoded material for a dramatic improvement in the playback of any stereo audio over a two-speaker system.
Stereo broadcast reception is offered for MTS and SAP with 181-channel capacity. A sound leveler keeps audio volume consistent during channel changing.


Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?

HDTV Size chart
With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience.
If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get.
  • Minimum size = Viewing distance/3
  • Maximum size=Viewing distance/1.5

Features:
  • Full 1080p HD Resolution with 120Hz Auto Motion Plus
  • Full Wrap Touch of Color Bezel, ISP Addressable w/ 1GB internal memory
  • 50,000:1 contrast ratio, 4ms response time, Super Clear Panel Technology
  • 4 HDMI Iputs, 2 Component Inputs, 1 PC Input, Wide Color Ehnacer, USB 2.0, HDMI-CEC

Customer Reviews:

  • Great Experience
    Samsung LN40A750 40-Inch 1080p DLNA LCD HDTV with Red Touch of Color
    I was apprehensive about buying a big item online, but my experience with Amazon and CEVA has set my mind at ease. I ordered the Samsung LN40A750 HDTV from Amazon late on Thrusday night (Nov. 6th). They gave me an estimated delivery date of the 14th. CEVA (the White-glove delivery service) called me that Saturday (8th) and we set up a delivery date of Monday the 10th. They delivered and set it up on Monday as promised. So far I am very pleased with the picture and sound. My Satellite reciever box is older, and does not have an HDMI connection, so I am using the component connections. I have been told that it gets even better using HDMI hookups. The only complaint (and not much of one) is that it is a "dust-magnet". Overall, I had a great experience with both Amazon and CEVA. ...more info
  • Blown away
    I upgraded to this 40" Samsung after going by Consumer Reports and I am truly amazed at the picture quality and sound. For a flat screen TV the look is sleek and sound is awesome. CEVA service was good. Showed up on time, set up TV and left with boxes. Not sure what the "white glove" service is. Only disappointment is that my Samsung Blu-Ray player remote doesn't control all the TV functions, like entering the channel number. Channel select up and down works but not entering a specific number. Not a big deal. ...more info
  • Short but sweet review
    Great TV, with two minor points to make:

    1) The TV base does not swivel! This is truly ludicrous. Not sure why the smart folks at Samsung can't get this done since EVERYONE needs to swivel their TV from time to time.....

    2) I never could figure out what the "touch of red" was all about, until the TV arrived. On the 750, its a tacky 4 inch black plastic frame around the screen, with about a 1/4 inch clear outer rim of clear plastic. The transition from the black to the clear plastic is a thin layer of red. Big f*#king deal. My previous TV was a 40 inch Sony LCD, which frankly looked a bit more dignified. I image some just might like this effect, but those people are probably into "bling". The frame also makes this set look a bit small, since the overall plastic frame is quite wide in relation to the screen.

  • Loft Living
    After approximately 2 years of vascillation as to wheter purchasing a flat screen was necessary I finally pulled the trigger. I won't say that I'm sorry I waited so long because if I had I would not have this incredible television in my home. It is, without doubt, the most amazing lcd televison in its class. Asthetically it by far takes the cake. As to the inner workings and the capabilities of this product I can't adequately describe how magnificent it is. The quality of picture is astounding. I've hooked it in to my wireless home theatre system which only serves to enhance an already wonderful sound quality.
    I needed a unit that would allow me to see from all areas of my apartment as I live in a wide open loft space. Mission accomplished! Samsung has created a phenomenal television. Don't walk...RUN to buy this tv. ...more info
  • Great TV
    This is a great TV. Lots of features and really good picture and sound. I highly recommend it....more info
  • purchased on 12/5/08
    Ok, first things first, this review is by a woman. I did alot of research and the BEST bang for your buck was on Amazon. This TV is great. There's just a few things non-electronic geeks should know before you buy. I bought the largest tv I could afford with the most advanced technology.

    The series 7 comes with Auto motion which seems like the coolest thing in the world. Not so much. When watching a movie, you need to turn the auto motion off or all of your movies look like, for lack of a better way to say this, they are low budget, single room, local channel programming. Auto motion has it's purpose though, it's phenominal for sports. Which, aren't important to me! So i'm bummed I didn't get a 46" series 6.

    Next, Don't think you're going to replace your tube tv with a high def LCD flat screen and get the same picture unless you subscribe to HD TV. I don't have HD and my picture is just a tad blurry. Or maybe it always was on the tube TV and I didn't know it because it was only a 32" tube tv lol Again, no remorse, just be prepared to pay for HD TV.

    Lastly, be prepared to spend some time getting to know your TV. It has LOTS of features that are really cool. But you aren't able to plug and play like you could in the old days. This one comes with a manual that you really should read lol

    The TV is great, it got here fast, It's light, Has good sound, and even I can figure out how to work it. But if sports aren't your thing, I'd recommend getting a bigger series 6.

  • Best of the best
    This is the second HD TV set that i have had in the last two years, and by far, this samsung is much much better than my previous one ( other brand ). This TV set met all my expectations and beyond. The only thing that can still be improved a little bit is the audio quality....more info
  • Karl's Review of Samsung LN40A750 40" HDTV
    Purchased this TV and received it two days later.

    The TV is fabulous with a marvelous picture and many additional features. A person MUST read the manual.

    I had trouble getting my picture through TIVO but once I talked to a Samsung supervisor, he had me hit the source but and go to HDMI and the picture came in beautifully....more info
  • Great LCD bad delivery
    So far the LCD is OUTSTANDING. I bought this particular brand and model for many reasons but mainly for the wiselink. Wiselink is a USB port on the TV that allows you to watch video, view pictures, and listen to MP3's via a thumbdrive. I have a lot of digital video and audio so I just load up a 16 gb thumbdrive and leave it hooked up to the tv - this eliminates me from having to burn DVD's saving lots of money. Just remember to add .avi or .mp3 at the end of your videos and music so the tv will recognize the file.

    I have basic cable but the LCD recognizes some digital channels being broadcast and they look great. The regular TV broadcast isn't as good but you get used to it pretty quick. I also have a Sony bd550 and XBOX 360. They both look amazing. Another thing about the XBOX is you can stream Netflix movies through it - some in HD and some Standard - both look great.

    The only bad experience I have had with purchasing this LCD has nothing to do with the TV itself. The delivery company SUCKS!!!. My TV was sent on DEC 9th and I didn't receive it til almost 3 weeks later. Doesn't sound terrible until I tell you it was sent from a location that you can drive to in about 2 hours.

    I contacted amazon (through email and by phone) because I couldn't find any information for CEVA anywhere and they gave me CEVA's customer service number. When I called CEVA they told me my package had been sitting in their wharehouse for over 2 weeks and he didn't know why I wasn't contacted - no notes were entered under my tracking number. I scheduled a delivery for the next day with a 4 hour window. Around the 5th hour I called CEVA again and was told they would call me back at their convienence. When I received the call the CSR was rude and basically just explained that they were busy because of the holiday season. I told them I understood but a courtesy call would have been the appropriate thing to do.

    When the driver finally showed up his helper was his 9year old son who couldn't help but slam the box up and down the walls carrying it upstairs to my living room. They took the TV out of the box, set it on the floor, plug it in, and told me turn it with the remote. He did ask me to check it for damage before I signed for it. When he left he didn't take the debris or even set it on my TV stand.

    Like I said the LCD itself is great, but I will never order anything from amazon.com again if CEVA is going to deliver it....more info
  • Not to worry...
    Like most first time large-screen HDTV shoppers, I was worried about the ordering and delivery process, as well as the set quality itself. Well, at least in my case, it was all misplaced. Amazon.com and CEVA (NJ) handled the order flawlessly. The White-Glove delivery was as-advertised/perfect AND within 5 days of placing the order online!

    Monitoring the daily price fluctuations, is worth the effort. Between Samsung's SuperBowl advertising, and the high marks from Consumer Reports, waiting for the right price ($1322 w/shipping included) was a real test.

    The LN40A750 itself, after a month of use, is a great set. The rear sub-woofer, and the LAN jack (for 'WISELINK') that the '7 Series' have, are worth the extra money.

    So relax, spend some money, and help the economy. It's all good....more info
  • Awesome TV
    I highly recommend this TV for anyone who is interested in paying a little more for the very best product. The picture and sound are just awesome. The set up was easy to follow and the remote is well designed and easy to use. I shopped TV's for about 4 months and was leaning towards buying the Samsung LN40A650 which I'm sure would have been great but I'm happy I went one better. Many thanks to the great service I recieved from Amazon. I'm a rookie online shopper so this was nerve racking but Amazon put my fears to rest. Thank you....more info
  • Samsung= electronics Satisfaction
    After reviewing the various brands of HD flat panel LCD TVs I chose Samsung and could not be more pleased. Amazingly real display and performance that is unmatched by other brands.
    I also purchased the Samsung BD-P1500 1080p Blu-ray player and the Samsung HT-AS720ST Blu-ray matching 5.1 Channel Home Theater System and needless to say I don't want to leave home! Watching and listening couldn't be better and I am completely satisfied.

  • Just in time for the playoffs!
    We bought this set just before Christmas.It arrived on time and was fairly easy to set up. The delivery was prompt and courteous. We also loved the large box to use as a barrier for a new puppy. The television makes it like the people are in the living room when there are talking head shots. It is great for game playing, too. We love it! No blurring and we can see a clear picture from all angles. ...more info

    This is a great television and I feel as though my money was very well spent. The picture is outstanding and very high quality. I am very pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend this particular television to anyone looking to buy a new tv....more info
  • Samsung continues to live up to its reputation
    I bought the LN40A750 as a gift for myself and it did not disappoint. A quick rundown:

    Picture - Clear, great quality. The Automotion Plus (aka 120 Hz stuff) makes everything seem much more fluid, but I do recommend keeping it on the low setting for everything but maybe sporting events.

    Sound - Surprisingly good for internal speakers. I'm assuming it's probably due to the built in woofer.

    A slight complaint would be the wheel on the remote. Rather annoying, not really good for selecting anything. Not worth taking a star off the rating though. All in all, great TV....more info
  • Samsung TVs
    This was the third Samsung I have purchased. They all have exceptionally vivid and sharp picture, all the expected features, and great sound. sound is what I was concerned about and hoped would not need to add speakers.

  • Samsung lna750 40 in hd tv

    Circuit City but they called & would not install product due to their
    immenent bankruptcy. Priced very well and it was delivered ahead of schedule.
    Now for the tv....Excellent picture & sound without getting surround sound. Will purchase another 750 model for our vacation home.....more info
  • Good value for the price, but don't like InfoLink
    Good value for the price overall. A few comments, though:

    InfoLink is quite limited. Samsung went all the way to add internet connectivity to the TV, but all it can do is RSS from USA Today to display limited stock prices (only NYSE and NASDAQ tickers), weather and news. Come on...

    WiseLink USB connection is only working with USB thumb drives. I have an external USB hard drive, which the TV doesn't recognize. As far as I know it's USB Mass Storage device, the same as a thumb drive.

    Also, it doesn't allow setting channel names on digital clear QAM channels (I've a basic Comcast cable)....more info
  • I Love my TV
    I purchased this TV about 6 months ago and I do not all the technical things of WHY I love my TV. But every single time, I sit and watch it, I still say, "I love my TV." The picture is beautiful. The TV unit is classy-looking too. I do not usually make such a fuss over things. If you are deciding between two or three - just pick this one!...more info
  • You Want THIS TV!!!
    I've had this tv for about 4 weeks now. All I can say is if you are on the fence as to which lcd tv to buy, then this is the one. My expectations were way more than met. The picture quality is fantastic, I couldn't imagine it being better. Even standard definitoin tv looks great. Video games and Blue-Ray look amazing with the 120hz auto-motion feature turned on. Regular tv shows can look a little choppy, almost like the picture skips, when the auto-motion is turned on though, so you have to turn it off for some programming. Turning it off is a two second thing. Auto-motion also has 4 settings, off/low/medium/high, which I didnt know when I bought it, and it works great. Cartoons and animated movies look absolutely incredidible for the kids, even when not in HD. The extra gadgets that come with the 7 series model and the fact that the red touch of color goes all the way around the set make it well worth the extra money. The physical appearance of the tv looks so much better than I expected, looks great in the living room. I paired it up with a Onkyo surround sound system and its better than going to the movies. I couldn't be more pleased with this tv and would highly recommend it to anyone. Delivery went flawless, second time I've gotten a big screen from Amazon. Customer support with them has always been great. Again, get this tv, you wont be dissappointed....more info
  • Touch buttons are annoying, but a nice TV anyway
    We really like our TV. Most people looking at these reviews want to know if there is anything "wrong" with the TV that they couldn't live with. I've had the TV 4 mos. and here are some of the things I wish were different.

    - the TV is way too smart. I had a old flat-screen tube TV and I easily plugged an ipod dock up to work through my TV with my Bose Cinemate. With this TV, I can't plug my ipod dock into it and play it through the TV because it can't find a video signal when I want to play music. It just flashes, "No signal detected". I couldn't believe that I pay $1,500 for a TV and I can't plug an ipod dock into it! (I can't plug the dock into my BOSE, because it doesn't have enough inputs)

    - The sensor for the remote is NOT in the MIDDLE of the TV!!! What a PAIN! In order to work the remote you have to angle the remote to that corner of the TV. If you plan to use your TV in an armoire piece of furniture, know that the "walls" and doors will get in the way of you turning the TV on/off.

    - Perhaps the MOST annoying function, is the touch buttons. They are not very sensitive to the touch AND they are SO HARD TO SEE! You can't see what button you're pushing (I'm 30yrs old - not a 50yr old!). So you have to just keep jabbing at the screen. To turn off the TV (on the TV), it takes 10 seconds instead of a split second. This may sound like not a big deal, but it's really pretty frustrating.

    - The blacks are not as clear at 45 deg., but you don't really notice unless you're looking and comparing.

    It's really a nice TV and we're really enjoying the HD channels...more info
  • Samsung LN40A750 is Tops!
    After researching both the 40" Samsung and the Sony XBR-6 I chose the former and do not regret the decision. The price was considerably better, and I think the Samsung matches the Sony in all respects. Amazon provided prompt and efficient delivery and setup. The picture quality has been excellent. I read the complaints by some about screen glare and halo effect when watching the Samsung. However, while I notice some glare from time to time, it is not bothersome to us. We have the TV in our den; the ambient lighting is not strong; and outside sunlight is indirect. I only wish we could have placed a larger HDTV in our den. If so, I would have bought a bigger screen Samsung 750....more info
