Great little TV
I was tasked with getting a small TV to put in my parents' kitchen. After reading lots of online reviews and looking at some sets in local stores, I finally decided to take the leap with this unit even though there were complaints of sound quality and small viewing angles. I have several friends with larger Samsung LCDs and they all have been very satisfied, so I trusted the brand.
I'm rather glad I did. This TV now sits on a counter between the main kitchen and the dining area, and while it's obviously not as clear from every angle as it is straight on, its horizontal viewing angle is at least as good as other LCDs I've seen and better than many. We don't really test the vertical viewing angle much since it's waist to chest height, but it seemed acceptable to me when I sat on the ground in front of it.
I was only marginally concerned about the sound since they have the option of passing the audio through to the kitchen zone of their distributed audio system, but the speakers hold up well for what they are. Don't expect the same sound that comes out of the sound bar of a 42-62" TV since these speakers are appreciably smaller, but they fill the fairly large kitchen/dining area just fine. Don't know if I got a great unit or it's just quieter in our place than other reviewers', but I don't see us having to turn it up much higher than 60 out of 100.
Can't really comment on the overall picture quality as they're just running standard definition to it at this point, but the colors are great.
Very much recommend this model to anyone looking for a small basic set.
- Good colors
- Easy to set up
- Price: got it for $209 shipped during a special
- Muting the sound on the unit doesn't mute the pass-through sound signal
- Sound isn't as good as larger TVs, but this is to be expected with smaller speakers.
Good little TV
Received TV very quickly, installed it on my sailboat to replace old non-digital TV. VERY sensitive with amplified marine antenna, receives 28 channels in Tampa Bay FL area. Very easy to set up, intuitive in operation. EXCELLENT PICTURE.
ONLY complaint is low audio output, 100% is barely adequate, which was unexpected as all other larger Samsung TV's I have(3 sized 22", 32", 40") have very good audio.
