Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have both the Samsung UN26EH4000 HD television, and also the same 46 inch model. This is a very basic, stripped down model that features only two HDMI ports. It doesn't have Smart TV features, such as Internet connectiivity, etc. But, I was looking for a reliable basic, HD TV and I wasn't interested in frills and extra features. These add to the cost, and are more things that can go wrong!

Pros: Good bang for the buck, so long as you are looking for the most bang for the buck in a basic, low cost HD LEDtelevision that can deliver a good picture without the frills and extras. Picture quality is very decent for the price! I am very happy with my 26 and 46 inch Samsung twins!

Cons: Limited video and AV ports. Could use more HDMI inputs and there is no ethernet connectivity... but this is a basic HD television for a bargin price. It would be a five star set otherwise.

Swantuckatonian from Swanton, OH on 1/13/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've been buying electronics from Crutchfield off & on for years. What keeps me coming back to them is their support & customer service...It is unmatched. I told Andy exactly what I wanted...right down to size, brand, and resolution. He highly recommended this TV and said I wouldn't be disappointed. Reluctantly, I took his advice and purchased it. He was right! Samsung has never let me down with picture & overall product quality. The DirecTV box actually says in the setup that it supports 1080p...Not sure if it actually will, but the picture looks so good you'd never know it! I bought this for a wall mount, workout TV for my wife. She loves it.

Pros: Super bright, super clear picture. Stunning. The stock sound is clear and audible, even at lower volume setting. I run it through architectural speakers, so I didn't keep it there, though. Plenty of features to use almost anywhere, just like the "big brother" Samsungs. Vesa standard wall mount capable, which was a must for me.

Cons: Not Ethernet capable. But for what were going to use it for, not a big deal. For an LED TV of this size, it's a little on the thick side. But, using a compound wall mount with a workout machine in front of it, it really wasn't a big deal.

Great product, needed different size

CherylM from Baltimore MD on 12/16/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great TV at a very good price. Was looking for a TV for my den and it was too big; too small for living room so I had to return it. I got at 19" Samsung from Crutchfield and may buy at 32' or 40" after Christmas for the living room. Excellent service by Crutchfield!

Pros: Great brand--did not use the TV so can't say what was good or bad

Cons: no jacks included

Good enough

zillustration from strasburg, va on 12/13/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The TV arrived one day after ordering it, and within a half an hour, it was set-up and running. The stand is very flimsy, and rocks the screen when the kids or dog go rumbling by, but I believe that is a single pedestal design flaw. The second issue I found was the lack of input jacks (red-yellow-white) for my kids various game systems. I ended up getting a very costly HDMI cable to connect my BlueRay, freeing up the jacks... but it also means only one game system can be plugged in at a time. Ok sound, not great.

Pros: good picture, quick set-up, quick delivery,

Cons: The sound is lacking depth of mid and bass tones. Input options are lacking duplicate types of common cables. The pedestal stand is not rigid enough to limit vibration transfer.

I was so impressed with the personnel at Crutchfield's. They helped me so much to make the order I purchased, as a gift, such an uncomplicated transation. The delivery was so quick and the person who received the Samsung absolutely loves it.

Great TV, perfect colors, very nice and simple to install.

Pros: A perfect buy, nice colors, seem to be a good TV, I bought a week ago and today the price dropped $20 and I call CS and they said they would credit me.

Cons: I wish the base would swivel like my old one.

very good tv.

Pros: Easy set up and good picture quality.

Cons: none

Alleycat from Cumming, GA on 10/5/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We bought this Samsung for our kitchen after reading favorable reviews. We were impressed enough to buy a second for one of our bedrooms. We rely on over-the-air broadcast signals picked up with two attic antennas and an antenna amplifier, picking up about 60 channels, including subchannels. They both catch more channels without breakup than the sets they replaced. This TV is very easy to set up and has very good picture quality with sound about average for the 26-inch screen size.

Pros: Easy setup and very good picture quality

This is a great TV for my bedroom. Just the right size, TONS of features, great sound and picture. It was a snap to use the menu to set it up just the way I wanted it. This is my second Samsung set and it does not disappoint.

LKR from Midcoast ME on 6/9/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice little TV for a good price and very easy to set up.

Pros: Since we view programs via a rooftop antenna, we were very pleased to see this Samsung received two more over-the-air channels than the old TV, and with much less signal-breakups.

Cons: None as yet.

Nice TV at a nice price

KG from Souderton, PA on 5/15/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was looking for a TV for our bedroom and 26" was a good fit. I did a bit of research and was impressed with Samsung's ratings. This TV was easy to set up right out of the box, although the instructions were fairly basic. Some people have complained about the sound quality, but for a bedroom, I have no issues at all with the sound. We're running it through a non-HD cable box, but even so, the picture is very nice and there are a number of options for fine tuning the image. The picture is good straight on, but you will notice some fading of image as you move to the sides. The remote has a lot of selections on it and is backlit. The TV is quite light and easy to maneuver, and for this price point and as a secondary TV it's a great choice.

Pros: Samsung reputation Ease of setup Picture Quality Value for money

Cons: Audio lacks bass, treble, etc. only has pre-set levels Stand doesn't swivel or tilt

Direct-Lit LED Technology:  Direct-Lit LED backlight technology bridges the gap between lower-cost CCFL (fluorescent) LCD TVs and newer edge-lit LED-LCD TVs. Samsung's Direct-Lit LED-LCD televisions feature LEDs positioned all the way across the LCD panel's back plane (instead of along the side). Unlike "Full-Array" backlight LED-LCD televisions that also feature LEDs positioned along the LCD panel's back plane, the Direct-Lit LED technology uses fewer LEDs and do not offer local dimming. Since there are fewer LEDs, the LCD panel's back plane must be moved farther away from the screen to provide adequate light coverage across the LCD panel, making the TV much deeper than an edge-lit LED-LCD television. Direct-Lit LED backlight technology offers a better picture and is more energy efficient than previous CCFL (fluorescent) LCD televisions, though it requires a much larger cabinet design than newer edge-lit LED-LCD TVs.

Clear Motion Rate 60: 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.

LED Motion Plus: This function removes drag from fast scenes with a lot of movement to provide a clear picture.

Motion Lighting: The TV automatically adjusts 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.

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.

3,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio: The LED-LCD TV delivers a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 3,000,000:1; which provides stunning colors and deep black, so your picture's details don't get lost in the shadows.

HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.

720p Resolution: The LED-LCD television displays all inputs at a resolution of 720p (1366 x 768). The television's HDMI and component video inputs will accept 1080p (24/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video signals.

  • HDMI (v.1.3): The Samsung LED-LCD TV features two HDMI 1.3 inputs. In addition, any HDMI input can be used to connect a PC to this TV.
  • Component Video: The Samsung LED-LCD TV features a single component video input. The TV's component video input can also be used as a composite video input (480i only).

Screen Sizes: You can choose one of the following screen sizes.

  • 16:9: Sets the picture to 16:9 wide mode.
  • Zoom 1: Vertically enlarges the size of the picture and allows you to move the enlarged picture using the arrows on the remote.
  • Zoom 2: Vertically enlarges the size of the picture more than Zoom 1 and allows you to move the enlarged picture using the arrows on the remote.
  • Wide Fit: Proportionally enlarges the picture to fit the entire screen without changing the aspect ratio.
  • 4:3: Sets the picture to 4:3 normal mode with pillars on the left and right of the screen.
  • Screen Fit: See the full image with no resizing when HDMI (720p/1080i/180p) or Component (1080i/1080p) signals are inputted

Note: Screen Size settings can be stored for each external device you have connected to an input of the TV.

  • MPEG Noise Filter: This filter reduces MPEG noise of the picture. You can set the MPEG Noise Filter to Low, Medium, High, Auto, or Off. 

Film Mode: The TV can be set to automatically sense and process film signals from all sources and adjust the picture from optimum quality. Film mode is supported in TV, AV, Component (480i/1080i), and HDMI (480i/1080i).

Auto Volume: Auto Volume automatically adjusts the volume of the desired channel, lowering the sound output when the modulation signal is high or raising the sound output when the modulation signal is low. This reduces the difference in volume when changing channels. The Auto Volume feature can be set to Normal, Night or Off.

Audio Delay: The Audio Delay function corrects audio/video mismatch, when watching TV or video, and listening to a digital audio output using an external device such as an AV receiver. You can adjust the audio delay from 0ms to 250 ms.

The optical digital audio output will only output in 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI, RCA, or USB.
  • Analog Audio: The television features a 3.5mm (minijack) audio output for connecting the television to an analog 2-channel receiver. You will need a minijack-to-RCA adapter (119MCON2M, sold separately) to make a stereo RCA connection between the television and your AV receiver. The TV's analog audio output terminals will output 2ch audio from any of the television's source inputs.
