  • Great tv!
    I am by no means a tv guru, so what I have to say about this tv is minimal. Color and clarity is great! Keep in mind when purchasing that the picture gets blurred when looking at it within a close distance of two feet or so. ...more info
  • Samsung - looks good sounds weak
    The picture quality is good - it took a little effort to get the picture just right; maybe its me but I didn't like the default settings - too dark too much black. However, the sound needs help, but I hear that's a problem with most 26" LCDs. I still believe that its a good value, definitely above the middle but not at the top of its class. No technically problems to date. In summary: looks, works great, sounds terrible!...more info

  • picture quality
    Samsung LN26A450 26-Inch 720p LCD HDTV

    The only problem I have with this tv is I can't seem to get the picture quality just right. Everything appears to dark (can't make out facial features.) I'm still trying to work on getting a better picture. Everything else is great. Good sound quality. Easy to set up. I know once I can get that picture more to my liking, I would give this a 5.

  • Great medium size TV
    Samsung LN26A450 26-Inch 720p LCD HDTV I have always been a Sony man but this TV has sold me on Samsung! I bought it for the bedroom and it is really a nice good looking TV as well as a great performer. The audio sound is terrific for it's size and I couldn't be more satisfied. You can leave the default settings as they are or tweak it to suit yourself because there are so many adjustments (If you want to) The picture is also great and does not leave you wanting for anything. You can't go wrong on this one and I highly recommend it....more info

    Very good overall, the video quality is very good. I especially love the colors and good tones. The audio isnt great but its not bad....more info
  • Great Viewing - except off vertical center
    This TV has a great picture, except if you are off center on the vertical axis. Then it fades quickly. There are enough advanced adjustments for the picture to keep a professional busy for hours, but the canned setting worked looked fine for me. I do wish that the tuner would have taken advantage of the DTV schedule guide listing feature provided by the broadcasters. Also, the signal strength meter would be more useful if it had more resolution than 5 bars. For example, my Apex DTV tunerApex DT502 - Digital TV tuner that I bought to upgrade my old TV, has a 0 - 100 signal strength and a separate 0 - 100 signal quality meter....more info
  • Very Good HD Picture
    Very good HD picture, I have two Panasonic Plasmas, and this for its size, is just as good of a picture.

    If you are looking for a small HD set, this is it....more info
  • Great Little TV
    This is an excellent smaller TV for the bedroom. Hard to believe I have read reviews panning the sound. My hearing is only average and even on the lower settings the TV sound is clear as bell. I have zero trouble hearing it. The only reason I can think of for any complaints is that there are a lot of teenagers who have blasted their ear drums to oblivion with Heavy Metal and Max Amped Rap. In other words, the sound is fine unless you're deaf. The picture is crystal clear for anyone who knows a little about tweaking the contrast, brightness, etc. that comes with just about every TV built since 1990. Well who knows about people not getting great reception with antennas? What era are antennas from? Either pay for cable or forget it. Even my cable hookup without the box is good enough to get clear as a bell picture quality. Really anyone who whines about this TV needs a Shrink more than a TV. It's the best value out there for the size and price. ...more info

  • Crashed after one month, but hoping for good repair
    TV quality is beautiful, but the set shut down after only one month. We had to ship it back to Samsung for repair. Been waiting for 3 weeks now with no feedback. Hoping for long term good service once it comes back like what it was. If so, a 5 star set. If not, down to 2 stars....more info
  • Fantastic TV
    I did a lot of research and finally ended up purchasing this TV. It's fantastic. I've had it since September 2008. The only thing that is really weird is that when I'm on a HD channel (I do not pay for HD channels, but the built in tuner picks up the local channels that broadcast in HD) and I'm using a microwave to heat up dinner, the channel loses its signal. What is also bizarre is that even when I'm not using a microwave this happens randomly. My fiance suggested it was from the uneven power affecting the TV and that I may need a better surge protector. I live in an apartment complex, so perhaps if you live in a home, you won't have this problem.

    And I have to tell you, my family got me a Sanyo 26" from Walmart. It was all they could afford and was a very thoughtful birthday present. I'm more into games than watching HD content. Also, I don't have any new generation systems yet (just the Wii, but that doesn't output very high anyway). When I hooked up the PS2, Wii, and SNES to the Sanyo, they all looked horrible. I was playing an underwater level in one of my games, and the contrast ratio was so low on the Sanyo that I kept swimming accidentally into the walls because I couldn't see.

    Then I get this TV, the Samsung. All of my old generation systems look amazing on it. No hard pixelated edges like I saw on the Sanyo. The progressive scan options on my PS2 games looked great. Even the SNES games looked okay because of the high contrast ratio. (They looked awful on the Sanyo)

    I even went and picked up an up scaling DVD player which outputs at 1080. Not all movies look great, but it's more the movie than the TV. I'm very pleased with this TV and am trying to convince my mother to get one, too. And the price dropped, too! Why wait?...more info
  • Not too bad
    The only issue with this tv is that the image is not good from all angles. If you have it up above you even only a foot or so above eye level the picture is not very good. Especially in dark sceens. I do like all the input features and it works ok for me. I've got a 46" LCD samsung and it is flawless. I figured this would be the same. Not so much....more info
  • Great TV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I am very happy with this TV! It is the first flat screen that I have ever had and I just can't get over the quality of the picture. It sure takes up a lot less room. I have it mounted in the corner on the wall and it is great!...more info
  • Great HDTV
    I'm very happy with this TV. This is my second Samsung HDTV (other is a 19"), plus I have a 19" Samsung monitor for my computer - all LCDs. I've never had a bad pixel. The picture on this TV is outstanding both in HD and non-HD programming. Colors are vivid and accurate. The sound is fine for the room, with the volume usually set on 20 or so out of 100. Setup was simple with cable TV, VCR, and DVD connections. S-Video connection is on the side, which seems a bit odd but isn't a problem.

    I haven't noticed any issues with off-vertical-axis viewing that others have mentioned. I have it set up on an entertainment center where it is mostly viewed straight-on or from slightly higher. Looks great across the board.

    Although we use cable TV, I tried discovering HD programming over the air. I was impressed with the extent of programming that the digital tuner found as well as the picture quality. Scanning is very slow, and the cleanup of non-existent channels is even slower. That's my only real complain with the unit.

    I appreciate an earlier reviewer's comments about the stand. It's simple to install once you figure out how it fits. The whole setup is very thin and light weight.

    I continue to be impressed with Samsung's products in general, and their LCD screens in particular. Amazon shipping was fast, as usual. I ordered this as a Valentine's Day present, but it arrive a week earlier than estimated!...more info
  • Excellent TV
    I did a ton of research before I made my decision and I am glad that this is what I selected. We have it in a den/kitchen area and it is the perfect size and easily viewable from both rooms. The clarity is amazing even when we view it from side angles. The colors are sharp and bright. It took 10 minutes to setup and configure to our liking. There is no delay in changing stations or turning the TV on/off. The sound is the only minimal drawback. I would rate it 7 out of 10. However, we hooked up a surround sound system with a sub woofer and that makes the sound amazing. I highly recommend this TV to anybody....more info
  • Samsung ... Ok.
    Not a bad product, but the clarity could be better. The picture looks quite grainy when viewing videos from the internet via an S-video cable. Yet to try HDMI. Haven't tried regular TV cable. Nice finish though. Great delivery by Amazon. Arrived prior to estimated delivery date....more info

  • TV smells like something is burning
    I have had this TV for a week and have probably watched a total of 25 hours of programming since turning it on. Love the TV except for the sound but that has never been a problem for me with any of my TV's because I always used remote speakers. My concern is that there is an ordor coming from the TV that smells like wiring that is becoming too hot. Some electronic equipment sometimes exhibits this when it is first used and I wonder if anyone else has experienced this with this particular TV model.

    Would appreciate any feedback on this.
