About the Samsung UN29F4000
New screen size, same crisp picture
New screen size, same crisp picture
If you don't quite have the space for a 32" TV, the next best option may be Samsung's 29" UN29F4000. Its advanced LED backlight delivers superior picture contrast, and you'll be impressed by this model's wide, accurate color palette. The picture is big enough to hold your attention, but the slim panel depth and skinny bezel minimize its physical presence. This TV is incredibly energy-efficient, too.
Inputs for your favorite sources
The UN29F4000 provides two HDMI inputs and a component video input for connecting your high-definition gear. You'll also find a USB input for plugging in a camera or thumb drive — it lets this TV pull double duty as an oversized digital photo frame anytime you want.

Features & specs
LED Edge-Lighting: Samsung's LED Edge-Lighting technology allows for a high dynamic contrast ratio and ultra-sharp blacks by allowing multiple LEDs to turn on an off automatically based on the image. LED Edge-Lighting also provides more natural color representation and deep reds and greens, because Samsung uses white LEDs that produce 105% of the broadcast color gamut. The television's white LEDs are arranged along the left and right edges of the screen and a proprietary light guide is used to focus its luminance inwards towards the middle of the screen for a more uniform brightness. Overall, this LED Backlight system produces contrast with stronger blacks and whites, and greater subtlety of every gradation in between.
Clear Motion Rate 120: Clear Motion Rate (CMR) is Samsung's more comprehensive and accurate measure for how well the LED-LCD TV can display fast-moving images. Previously, motion clarity was expressed simply by the refresh rate, measured in Hz. CMR, however, takes into account all three factors that contribute to motion clarity: panel refresh rate (60Hz), image processor speed and backlight technology. CMR is measured by determining the thinnest line a TV can display in a moving image. The thinner the line, the higher the CMR rating, and the clearer the picture you'll enjoy on the screen.
Wide Color Enhancer Plus: Wide Color Enhancer Plus allows you to see picture color the way the director originally intended. Witness the entire RGB spectrum brought to life on your screen to bring you exceptionally vibrant, yet natural-looking images faithful to the director's original intent.
Motion Lighting: The TV automatically adjust the brightness of the screen in response to the brightness of the room. In bright light, the screen brightens. In dim light, the screen dims.

I bought this receiver to replace a 20" TV my wife and I had been using as an auxiliary set connected to my satellite tv service. It is a great improvement in both picture quality and sound over its predecessor. Excellent quality to price ratio.
