I've got the 46" a500 and it just fine for me..I've also got the 40A550 and picture quality seems identical on both..I never understood the big hoopla about HD, until i got these
By the time I buy something that projects in 1080p, I will be buying a new TV. I have no desire for a game console, and bluray is way at the bottom of the list now. I don't watch many movies anyway, so I'm thinking a 720 will do just fine for now. So why not buy even cheaper now, and save the difference for a few years down the road.
All I really want right now is a 16:9 so when we do watch movies, we aren't watching something 3" tall on a 36" tv.
That TV is 1080p.. I also didn't care too much about blu ray etc, however when we bought ours it went on sale a week later for $100 less, and you could get a blu ray player if you bought one for $99..So i just went back in and got the blu ray player free instead of the $100 refund...They have that sale on all the time, it's not a bad deal as they are usually 249 to buy alone.
It's not a bad TV, but if you have no plans of getting a BlueRay player or watching HD TV, stick to a 720P
Great TV. But get the 46 or 52.
Yup, I've got the 46" A550, and have no regrets with my purchase. Only thing I can add is that I think you may find the 40" a bit small.
40 is as big as I want for that room. Doesn't matter anyway though. They are sold out.
I think it might have been clearance. Its web only.
I wish we'd gone bigger than 46. I think you will find the 40 small dude.
TV size is like a drug. Been loving my 40" sammy. I think its the perfect size. But I can totally see how people get used to it and want larger. I mean really, a 40" TV isnt that small.
I have a 40" samsung too and love it. But I find myself thinking I want to get a bigger one, even though 40 is a good size for the room I have it in. When I bought this 3 years ago prices were alot different then they are now, it makes me sick.
We have a nook over the fireplace that only will accomodate a 40"..In the bonus room I was trying to decide between the 46" and 52" but i went with the 46 cuz the room is only 12' wide i believe and i figured 52 might be overkill.
I need to consider that while a 42, or 46 would be ok for the current TV room, it would definitely be too big for the dog house that I would be confined to if I bought it.
We downsized TV's the last time around. Went from a 50 to a 42.
