The Samsung LN-T4061 looks very much like the HP-T4264, after all they both came from the same manufacturer. But they don’t seem to have only the manufacturer in common because their features and technology are almost identical. On the tests, both HDTVs managed to get almost the same marks.
Although the Samsung LN-T4061 is smaller than the HP-T4264, they are both the same when it comes to menu, design, remotes, etc. Another difference between those two would be the fact that Samsung LN supports 1080p and has an LCD panel, while the other uses a plasma screen.
This product is a bit above average compared to other products in its category. During the tests it managed to get a satisfactory score but it’s far from being on the first places. Everything looked good but it had some problems during the standard-definition test on DVD and TV shows.
The high-definition test, however, ran very smoothly and this product obtained a better mark. There were minor problems with the skin tones in 1080p but other than that everything was good.
When it comes to physically setting up this product, you won’t have any difficulties because everything is accessible. The connectors are found on the LN-T4061′s back so you won’t have any problems finding them.
Even if you don’t have any knowledge in technology you will eventually manage to set up the TV. This is a pretty good advantage since you need hours to set up most of the HDTVs on the market because you can’t figure out where everything is.
The menu is not complicated, having a well organized structure. Also, every option is easily found and if you wish, you can make the menu opaque to see everything better.
While you select the sources, it will automatically skip any source that cannot be found, this might prove a little tricky because if you have something and it doesn’t find it, you must select it from the provided list. There isn’t any option that lets you introduce your own source, if you cannot find it in the list.
You also have the freeze option and picture-in-picture if you want to see something from two sources; however, you aren’t allowed to watch from different channels. The USB port lets you see the pictures from your camera on the TV; you also have a jack for headphones. Using these options you can also connect a portable music player such as an iPod to listen to tunes as you fiddle with the Samsungs controls.
The remote isn’t the most comfortable and intuitive thing in the world. It’s rather long and not all the buttons have light; however, it can be programmed. Unfortunately, some of the smaller buttons may be a turn off for some consumers who may be visually impaired.
The sound is good, considering the fact that it comes from an internal system so this TV won’t have problems regarding its sound.
This is one of the average quality HDTVs, although images look good on it, sometimes you have the feeling that something is missing. The skin tones aren’t very real, as it tends to lighten them. Overall this is a good HDTV for someone who isn’t very pretentious because overall this will prove to be a good LCD TV that will bring satisfaction to most of its buyers.
