I currently own a 40" Samsung HDTV LCD Flat Panel TV. I have had mine for about a year and a half. The picture on this TV is simple gorgeous! It's clear, crisp, and has great color! I enjoy watching this TV daily in my living room. The sound quality on it is great as well. Having the HD and connecting it with an HDMI cable to an HD Ready Digital Cable box will enhance this TV to it's highest level. The also come with several inputs/outputs. I have a Blu-Ray (Wifi Internet Ready) Player connected to it, a Wii, and a Ipod 20watt subwoofer tower speaker system and it doesn't effect the performance of the TV what-so-ever. Samsung is a well known name and one I will continue to look at and buy in the future. If you are looking for a nice sized TV for the average sized living/family room, I would highly recommend that you take a look at what Samsung has to offer. They have come down in price since I bought mine..which is a bonus for you. They are also a reputable company that is keeping up with all of the technology changes and making sure they have something for everyone!
