Time Stand

I'm looking to purchase an HDTV and was wondering the difference between the two types. Is it worth is to spend the extra money for LED? How much better is the performance of an LED?

LED and LCD HDTVs are actually both LCD. The only difference is when the HDTV says it's LED, it's actually referring to the type of backlighting. LEDs use light emitting diodes which turn on and off extremely fast. This helps to make dynamic contrast possible (black scenes are darker, white scenes are brighter). LCDs use fluorescent tubes that are not so fast. Performance wise, picture quality varies greatly between manufacturers in regards to both technology. Before making a purchase, do your homework and read up on specs and reviews on websites like and

How do I change audio setting on Samsung LCD to direct sound through Digital Optical cable to surround sound?

I have HDMI running from Surround sound to HDTV. I have Digital Optical Cable running from HDTV to Surround sound. How do I direct the TV to use the optical cable for sound instead of HDMI. The main goal is to have best sound quality for HDTV, HD Set-top Cable Box, and surround sound system. Thanks to any answers!

Run the optical cable from the TV digital audio output to the surround sound digital input.

Select the optical input on the surround sound system (can't tell you exactly how without knowing the make/model), and you'll get great audio from whatever you're watching on TV.

How do you get audio on an HDTV when the video is from a laptop?

I have my Laptop hooked up to my HDTV via HDMI but i cant get sound to come from the TV. The only sound continues to come from the Laptop but it is just too low. I dont want to hook up regular computer speakers because the sound quality is not where my TV is. Anybody know what to do here?

The TV should have an AUX audio input. Connect the audio connection from your laptop to the AUX audio input on the TV and you should get the sound from your TV.

What will come after the Xbox360, Wii, PS3?

best hdtv for 2013
 on New Hdtv For 2013 on
best hdtv for 2013 image

Sam Yi

I only own a regular Xbox, and am planning to buy a new console.

My question is this: Am I too late in buying gaming console? Should I wait until something else comes out? WILL something come out in the near future?
Anyone have any information or opinions?

Nobody knows what the next generation will look like or when it will be released. Anyone who says they know is a big fat LIAR cause they haven't even been designed.

In fact, the technology doesn't even exist yet to make them. Look at the number of cores in xbox360 and ps3: 3 and 8. Each on a 3.2ghz clock cycle. The last couple years have seen the death of Moore's law, which predicted the number of transistors on an IC would double every 18 months. They can't do it anymore because there's a heat barrier, so they had to resort to making multiple cores and pretending it was one "chip." It is hard to make software for and generates even more total heat than it would if they had just stuck with single core without making it any faster. But they can't do that, because the industry expects Moore-compliant products.

Look at any pc on the market today, are there any cpu's clocked faster than 4 ghz yet? No, and they don't even sell them that fast, you have to overclock them. Every new pc is at least a dual nowadays, up to 4 and it looks like they'll be going 8 soon. About to finally catch up with the ps3 except their multithreading still isn't as advanced as the Cell's is, or as good for running 3d game engines either.

So what will they make a ps4 out of? A new Cell with 16 cores? Don't bet on developers lining up to make games for that. It would also overheat like crazy. Circuit width tech is down to 45nm now, but it took three years, since the original ps3's on 90nm. That's not a very fast increase, it would never make a 16-core console realistic. Likewise if Microsoft wanted to take xbox to the next level they'd have to release some kind of 8-core goliath, it would make the red ring of death look like an ice cream social at the south pole. The tech is not there; there is no design. Not even a concept.

Now, the Wii can and probably will upgrade, but that's not gonna make it the first of the next generation. It will make it the last of the current generation, just as Wii is the last of the last generation. The only next gen part of Wii is the controller, and that is an accessory. The console is a 700mhz single-core putz. It is no more powerful than your original xbox. It can't output HD, it has no web browser, it is limited in a zillion ways. If they redesign it to have a dual-core at the standard 2 to 3ghz, then it will outperform the old wii by leaps and bounds. But it will only be a current-gen console. I don't expect them to upgrade the cpu though, only the graphics chip to make it HD capable. Because Nintendo has long feared the US digital transition when suddenly zillions of people will have new HDTV's and realize standard def really kind of sucks.

The console that will last the longest is the ps3, because it has the most advanced cpu and also the best gpu of the bunch. (400gflops compared to 240gflops for xbox's gpu). They're wasting their time on motion sensing right now, which the ps3 has done since it was released and also with the playstation eye, and xbox knows it can't make a better console yet either so it's trying to get your grandmother to play too. Motion sensing control is a joke.

There will not be any real current gen consoles released before the year 2013. Only portables.

Why do movie theatres still use old projectors with film?


Well we are in the new era so why not digital projectors? I know there are digital ones but not very much ones out yet

It's merely taking time for the multiplexes to acquire and install digital projectors. The digital projectors in theaters aren't the little briefcase-sized ones used for company presentations or home theaters; they're large machines the size of refrigerators, many of them capable of projecting four times the number of pixels of HDTVs, and they cost tens of thousands of dollars each. They also require an upgrade to the screen; so the total cost of upgrading a single theater is about $70,000.

So to go from a standard that was used by EVERY theater for practically a century and completely convert over to a new one is a process that has been (and is going to) take a lot of time. Of the roughly 36,000 cinema screens in the U.S., about 16,000 have converted to digital as of 2010, with a plan to have 20,000 converted by 2013 as part of a billion-dollar project initiated in 2009.

What do the good people of Yahoo Answers think?

It is definitely something i wish I could afford...The only problem I see here is that the power supply might not be enough for both those video cards. The 680 needs at least 550w and the 640 needs at 350w so, you need a better power supply for it. Other than's a really good computer with tons of stuff.

Playstation 4 question ?


Does the ps4 have the av color wires? Or u need hdmi in order to use it?

It will only support HDMI now. Some recent games on the PS3 actually had visual problems because of people who were still using composite cables. DarkSiders 2 and Skyrim come to mind.

You'll need to get your hands on a HDTV and some cables. I recommend getting a T.V. no bigger than 32" and get your HDMI cable off of Amazon since they have cables available for as little as $2 (and all HDMi cables do the same thing, no matter the price).

Use this interactive model of the PS4, and look at the back. You'll see that there's only HDMI and nothing on other video output cables.

Tube TV vs 1080p HDTV?

best picture quality hdtv 2011
 on beetroot curry andhra , cathy rigby seussical ,
best picture quality hdtv 2011 image


Comparing the two tv's in this scenario.

TV#1 2002 Model Flat Tube 60Hz 27" Screen
TV#2 2011 3D Ready 1080p 120Hz 63" Screen

Just for giggles I plugged in the RCA cables (Red, White, Yellow) to my new tv to play the PS3. Resolution is set to a maximum of 480p for these cables. Picture quality is terrible! Rainbow effect & nothing looks good. But, when hooked up to the old school tv same method, looks great!

Now normally I do run the latest 1.4 HDMI cables & use the 3D glasses & all that good stuff, but this was just for my own amusement, now that i've seen the difference, I want to know.....why......

So the question???? Why, does an advanced piece of technology not look nearly as good under these circumstances as the old school tv which looks great?

The old school TV is designed for the 480 that the composite cable gives it. Your new TV has to artificially increase the resolution of the TV from 480 lines to 1080 lines. Some TV's do a better job doing this than others.

samsung hdtv un46C, un46D, or UN46E?


What's the difference between the C, D, and E? All I want is sick picture and sound. I don't care for extra features this TV will simply be used to play videogames and watch a movie every now and then

A quick explanation of the Samsung serial numbers:

Part 1, the display technology: UN = LED, LN = LCD, PN = plasma
Part 2, the size: easy to recognize, it's 46-inch
Part 3, the series: D6000, ES8000, C7000, loads of variations. The C series are from 2010, D is from 2011, E(S) is from 2012. The number indicates the specs/features.

A few examples: UN46Cxxxx is a 46-inch LED screen from 2010, a PN55Dxxxx is a 55-inch plasma from 2011. A UN55D7000 has the same features as a UN46D7000, just a bigger screen.

Over the last years, image quality improved but not as fast as new fancy features were added. If you don't need gesture control, internet access, smart TV features and apps, a HDTV from 2010 would be perfectly fine, the irony is that most of them are more expensive now that the new 2012 ones. The UN46C6500 for example costs about $1.4k, the UN46ES6500 slightly more than $1k.

Bottom line: My recommendation would be the UN46EH6000. No 3D, no unneeded features, but 240Hz refresh rate, decent image quality, 2x HDMI, 1x USB, Dolby Digital Plus/Dolby Pulse, barely more than $800 for a perfect "basic" HDTV. Sick sound? All modern flatscreen HDTVs have built-in 10-20 watt speakers. That's far from perfect, no matter what manufacturer you look at, these thin little speakers can't do wonders. Some sort of home theatre kit is definitely recommended for all audiophiles.

Is Panasonic a good tv brand?

Looking for a new tv and was wondering whether Panasonic is a good brand. I was thinking about the Panasonic 42" Class Viera U Series 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV. At Kmart it's 500$. Is there a better tv similar to this that is better? Want 1080p and 120 Hz and near 42 inch.

panasonic is the BEST brand of tv you can buy,, it used to be pioneer kuro tv's they where the kings of tv's but they stopped making tv's for about 3 years now and panasonic bought over there technology,,

now panasonic produce the best tv's especially the plasma tv's they are brilliant,,

pioneer used to make plasma tv's when panasonic, sony, samsung lg etc etc was still making large box crt tv's thats how well advanced they where and when panasonic bought over the technology, panasonic tv's just keep winning awards,,

in the WHAT HI-FI sound & vision magazine 2011 tv awards panasonic won 5 awards out of 7 and 4 of those awards was for there plasma tv's the only other company to win awards was samsung , and WHAT HI_Fi have been doing reviews for tv's and other electrical items for over 25 years so they know a few things about tv's

Lcd 120hz vs Plasma 600hz?

Joey B

I will play video games 100% or the time on one of these hdtvs. Should I go with a 720p 600hz plasma or a 1080p 120hz Lcd. Both tvs are made by the same company.

The above post is incorrect. The screen glare problem has not been solved. Plasma screens are the glossy type. When I went to best buy, i noticed severe reflections from all angles. There is even a video done by CNET on the VT30 plasma TV (last years panasonic flagship model and also the TV in my bedroom) on youtube where you can see significant reflections even in a darker room. Plasma TVs are best suited for rooms with controlled lighting. In those conditions the plasma TV will produce great PQ. Also plasma TVs consume the same amount of power as the older plasma models. You can verify this through many review sites such as FlatpanelsHD or CNET. They measure the total watts consumption per hour and have it down on a chart. If you are adamant on purchasing a plasma, then I would recommend the ST50 by Panasonic. It is their most inexpensive plasma TV and it has gotten great reviews.

Now I recommend to you a LED LCD TV for gaming. My reasons are : if you plan on gaming a long time, your TV will not overheat and burn-in issues are non-existent. (i have seen burn-ins on a panasonic vt30 after only 5 months--even with the screen wipe feature in use). Also 3D gaming is a big plus for me so the comfort of the glasses will become significant enough to where it will affect the type of TV you may purchase. You will be able to play during the day. LED LCD TVs are very bright. Most 2012 LED TVs however have a glossy screen as well. You will get some unwanted reflections. I highly recommend LG's LW series 3D LED TVs (2011 models). They have a matte screen for unparalleled brightness and since its 2012 now, should be priced even lower than its competition.

When is the best time to buy a new tv? Before or after the Superbowl?


Could someone give a brief overview of the differences between LED and HDTV? (I am thinking of purchasing something around 40 inches.)
Also, my purchase would not have to coincide with a Superbowl party. Do you think that prices would be better before or after the game? Or is there a better time of year to purchase a new televsion as new models are introduced?

There are 3 type of HDTV which popular in market now LCD HDTV, Plasma HDTV and LED HDTV.

Plasma uses gas plasma cells charged by precise electrical voltages to create a picture.

LCD screens (liquid crystal display) are in layman's terms sandwiches made up of liquid crystal pushed in the space between two glass plates. Images are created by varying the amount of electrical charge applied to the crystals

LED-backlit LCD television or LED TV is an LCD TV that uses LED backlighting rather than fluorescent lights used in traditional LCD televisions

Each technology have their pro & con, here are pro & con for your decision

Pros of Plasma
- Better contrast ratio
- better ability to render deep blacks, more color depth,
- better motion tracking (response time)
- more availability in very large screen sizes.

Cons of Plasma
- more susceptible to burn-in (although this is not as much of a factor now, due to technology improvements in the past few years)
- more heat generation (as well as more power consumption)
- screen glare in brightly lit rooms
- heavier weight, and more delicate to ship.
Good brand that I would recommend for Plasma is Panasonic or Samsung

Pros of LCD
- LCD television advantages include no burn-in susceptibility
- cooler running
- less screen glare, more functional at high altitudes
- longer display life (although improvements are being made in Plasma screen life)
- looks better in brightly lit rooms
- less power consumption than Plasma.
Cons of LCD
- Lower contrast ratio
- not as good rendering deep blacks
- not as good at tracking motion (although this is improving, especially with the implementation of 120Hz refresh rates (and some now offer 240Hz) on higher-end models).
Good brand for LCD that I would recommend is Samsung or Sony

Pros & Cons of LED is almost same as LCD but LED come with better contrast ratio,better picture quality , super slim and 40% less power consumption but higher price

There are good deals before Superbowl party and another good time is around March which there will be new model out and price of old model will drop down.

What would be an average sizes plasma or lcd tv for a master bedroom?

best hdtv picture quality cnet
 on HDTVs for every gift budget video - CNET TV
best hdtv picture quality cnet image


We are looking at either 32, 37 or 42 inch plasma or lcd tv's. Normally we watch tv at night so which type of tv would have a better picture quality at night. Can anyone recommend some good models?

Plasmas are better for night viewing than LCDs.

The size to get depends on the viewing distance and the programming types. If you are going to be watching mostly HDTV programming, you can be as close as 2 times the screen measurement away (so, for a 42-incher, you don't want it any closer than 7 feet away from your viewing spot).

If you watch a lot of standard definition, you probably want a smaller screen or want to have it a bit further back, so that it is at least 2.5 or 3 times the screen dimension away.

Plasmas generally don't come any smaller than 42 inches. If 42 inches is right for you, among the top choices among reviewers right now are the Samsung HPT4254 / 4264 and the Panasonic 42px75 / px77. Check reviews at CNET below.

Good luck.

What does 1366 x 768 pixel HDTV resolution mean?


I'm looking at the 27" and the 32" Sony Bravia and both have listed under their specs the same resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.

Does this mean that the 32" has more of a stretched out image? I'd much rather go with a smaller TV if picture quality is better.

Okay. This is one of those questions that I could spend hours talking about, but here is the short version. All tv's now list numbers just like 1366x768, or 1920x1080, etc... Back in the day there was no need for this as we all had the same. But now the numbers are for the vertical / horizontal lines. For the time being, the last # is the one you want to focus on (this is changing). 768 means that your tv can do what's known as 720P. It may be able to accept 1080p and 1080i signals, but they will be downconverted to fit the native resolution of your display. At this screen size there is going to be little if any benefit in buying a 1080p (Sharp Aquos is about the only one) because the tv just isn't big enough for it. It doesn't mean that the image will be streched unless you are viewing 4:3 content and can't stand the black bars on the sides and you strech it yourself. This resolution is a true 16:9 and HD will look great. I have a 27" 16:9 and it looks great. At this resolution and screen size I would be looking more at the features, e.g. brightness, contrast ratio, # of hdmi inputs, etc... than worrying about the 768. Right now there is only Blu-Ray that gives a true 1080p movie experience, and 1080i does not look any better than 720p so until there is more 1080p content, and way better tv's to display it in this screen size I would buy the best 32" I could find. Look at CNET for some great reviews. I wouldn't buy a 27", mine looks great, but it really is only meant for a bedroom or something like that. Hope that helps.

How to view local HD channels?

high quality indoor hdtv antenna
 on Artec High Gain Indoor HDTV Antenna-TV Antennas-
high quality indoor hdtv antenna image

Jay D

I have an HDTV with built in hdtv tuner. I'd like to know how I can watch local HD channels. I have Dish Network but I do not have an HD package or the HD receiver, I only have standard definition channels. Most of the local channels have the HD logo on them but I don't see them in hd. What do I need to watch these channels in high def? Comments appreciated.
I thought maybe I could watch them by getting an HD-capable antenna?

To receive Over The Air channels, you need a good quality antenna. The antenna you need depends on how strong the signals are at your house.

Visit . This site will help you choose the proper antenna for your location and tell you where to aim it. Note that there is no such thing as a HD antenna, that's just marketing hype. Any TV antenna, old or new, will do just fine. Also, if you are more than about 5 miles away from the transmitters, an indoor antenna will probably do a poor job so you wil probably need an outdoor antenna.

Connect the antenna, set your TV for antenna tuning and scan for channels. If you want to continue to use the antenna, connect the Dish Network receiver to one of the A/V inputs on your TV. Then you can switch between antenna and satellite by simply changing inputs on your TV. Over The Air HD will look better than cable or satellite too because it's not as compressed.

Telemundo comes in fuzzy, what to do?


I get Telemundo through my antenna...the picture is decent, though fuzzy. What I can't deal with is the crackling and noise. Is there any way I can clear the picture? It's an analog channel that still comes through my HDTV and antenna. Is there anything I can do to make the picture clearer and eliminate the noise?

The only solution is pretty much a better antenna, or better aiming and placement of the antenna you have. If it's a roof-mounted antenna, someone should climb up, check the wiring (make sure it's tight, not damaged), and then try turning the antenna to see if the quality of the picture improves when it's pointed another direction.

If you are using an indoor antenna, you should try replacing it, or aiming it better. It may be necessary to position it close to a window.

In the sources below, is a high-quality indoor antenna you can make out of cardboard and foil (don't laugh, it's very good antenna.)

They are not representive of Blu Ray quality at all, even SDTV has better picture quality then what the HDTVs show in Walmart, why is this?
I don't mean what the picture quality will look like once you get the TV home, I mean why is the picture bad on the TVs on display in the store.

This is Walmart we're talking about here, not your local Home Theater Boutique, or heck, even Best Buy.

I bet they're using a crummy DVD Player playing a SD resolution demo DVD, through a huge, unpowered, component video splitter that connects to each demo TV.

Then again, most folks shopping at Walmart aren't going to be looking at the demo TVs. They've either done their homework online, or just walk by and think "Hey, that one's cheap..."

Why does an HDMI cable make my Xbox 360 games sound scratchy?

Dale C

I recently purchased an HDMI cable to connect my XBOX 360 S to my HDTV. The picture quality is great; but the sound has become all scratchy and fuzzy. Why is this happening?
I don't think there is anything wrong with the cable, because i just tested it with my blu-ray player, and there is no issue with the sound. There's only a problem when I use the HDMI cable with the Xbox.

What should I spend my back taxes on!!?


I am getting around 200 in back taxes. and I am trying to decide on what I should spend it on. Theres only one thing I NEED but the other things I WANT.

Things I need:
New tires for my truck - price- 508.19

Things I want:
HD TV- Picture on Tv now is going out (Keeps flickering)
HD PVR (To record video of gaming and upload them on youtube.)

I need help deciding. And dont just say tires cause my tires aint bad. They just need replaced sooner than later

Thank in advanced

Since you have a bad i'd say buy a new TV. There are some cheap ones for around 200-300 dollars. There about 32-37 inches i think. Don't buy a PS3 just yet because the PS4 is coming this Holiday 2013. I'm pretty sure that Sony will drop the price of PS3 if you still want it. On black Friday Sony comes with bundles that much cheaper than now so don't get PS3 now. Considering that HDTVs are really cheap now you can buy that now. For HD PVR you will not need that because most games now have a theater mode where you can save that gameplay, use a usb flash drive to transfer the gameplay to your computer then upload.

What can you tell me about this HDTV?

 on ... UN55F8000BFXZA 55-Inch LED Smart 3D HDTV Review ~ Best 3D HDTV Review
reviews best led hdtv image


I just found this TV and I am really close buying it but first I want to know if there are any reviews for it because I searched everywhere and found nothing.

Haier HL24XSLW2 24" Slim LED 1080P LCD HDTV White

If anyone has any info please let me know.

Looks good to me. Basically a computer monitor with a built in TV. Good for bedrooms, or small apartments. It's a little expensive for something with a contrast ratio of 160000. But, buy it, try it, and if you don't like it, return it.

Can I downgrade from a 32 inch tv to a 24 inch?


My 32 inch LCD Emerson hdtv broke, will it be that much of a downgrade to go to a 24 inch LED Vizio TV. Basically I am looking at either a 24 inch vizio or a 32 inch LED element tv. I have never heard of element and saw mixed reviews, but it is made in America, which I like. Will an Element 32 inch led tv last, or will it break in two years like my Emerson did?

You're going down 12 inches so you will notice the difference. It has been my experience that you get what you pay for so if you buy an off brand TV be prepared for it to go out in a year. Basically they take advantage of the poor by making them pay more. Save an extra hundred and buy a 32 or 40" name brand HD tv. I bought mine from Walmart and saved about 150 dollars in black friday.

Just bought an Vizio xvt423sv LED HDTV and the picture quality is not like the t.v display in store. It is actually poor for an LED. Do I need better cables? How do I get the best LED HDTV picture quality?

You need an HD cable box and blu ray player connected to the tv with HDMI cables.

What brand of HDTV has the best picture quality and a decent sound quality?


I want good picture quality and decent sound from the on board speakers. 32 inch to 36 inch. I don't need prices but that would help. I WILL be going to best buy to buy it, and they have a bunch of great deals going on for 32 inch HDTV's. I was thinking samsung. Any complaints?

Samsung led tv will be best picture in 32" but is also the most pricey.

What is the best 2013 HDTV on the market?

 on Top 20 Best Selling LCD/LED/Plasma HDTV 2012-2013 | Top Best Price
best led hdtvs 2013 image


I need to buy an at least 50'' TV for my new apartment.

I want to know which TV is objectively the best on the market right now. I've been looking at a couple Plasma, and LED/LCD screens, but I can't seem to pick which one is the best.

I can't stand 3D, so please avoid picking 3D TVs. In theory, the best HDTV could be 3D-capable, but I'm not willing to pay for 3D when I'm never going to use it.

Help me figure out which one is the BEST NON-3D HDTV right now on the market. As long as it doesn't have 3D, price is not an issue.

Thank you!

Will the release of oled and 4k drop the price of regular tvs?

Original W

hello, i was wondering if anyone in the tv sales or home theatre communities thought that with the release of oled (organic light emiting diode) or 4k resolution tvs sometime in 2013, that the price of tvs that aren't oled or 4k will drop much like standard definition tvs dropped in price when high def came out? In case your wondering im looking at the price of a Panasonic Viera Tcp50st30. THANK YOU

Yes the prices will go down, but not all of a sudden. Like all other electronics, the prices are constantly going down. Even when HDTVs came out, the prices on standard television didn't dropped overnight. Also, OLEDs TVs and 4k TVs are still a novelty, with only very pricey model are available to the general public. It will take 2-3 years to become mainstream and to challenge the plasma/lcd/led prices.

This is especially true if you want to buy a very specific model, like your case. If you are willing to wait that model would be when the new models will come out (so the stores need to sell their old stock). This is usually in the February-April time frame.

Will an HDTV antenna work with a standard definition TV?

best quality hdtv antenna
 on Finding The Best Indoor HDTV Antenna
best quality hdtv antenna image


I have a standard definition TV, and I'm looking for a new indoor antenna. Will I get any reception using an HDTV antenna? Obviously I wouldn't get HD quality picture, but would standard channels come in? I may get an HDTV in the future, and I don't want to have to buy another antenna. Thanks!

The antenna is just a receiver of RF signals and yes it can receive both SD and HD signals.

Make sure you go to to select the best antenna for your house and where to point

What type of "antenna" do you buy for your tv to avoid having to pay co's like time warner?


And what channels will you get off of this antenna? Im just ready cancel time warner because their equipment is terrible and they just insist on increasing their prices constantly. And will that antenna work on all tv's? I have one that is 15 years old (not a flat screen) and a flat screen.

What you are wanting to do is switch over to broadcast television.

Each area, or "Market" is different - you'll have to visit a web site such as to find out what is broadcast in your area. Typically it will be the major networks plus extra channels that vary by market.

The antenna you need is cheap to purchase - $10 at Walmart buys one that works for most locations. However there is a small catch... your 15 year old set won't tune in anything that is broadcast today as we have since switched over to a new high quality type of broadcasting that provides a MUCH better picture. You either need a set-top box (Walmart - $40) or purchase a newer used CRT set that has the "SDTV" logo on it, which should cost less than $40.

As for your flat screen set, hard to say for sure. Sets built after 2006 typically tune the new channels, and the date is on the back of the set. You can also look for the "Dolby Digital" logo and word on the front of the set. If this set is older than that - you'll need a set top box for it as well. You won't get a good picture with the $40 area box, you will be best served with a true HDTV set top box, which cost closer to $80 as a starting point.

Bright side is, once you upgrade as needed - there will not be a monthly bill.

Are these Samsung HDTV's exactly the same?

best 40 inch hdtv 2013 image


I notice the Samsung UA40F5000 has the exact same specs & features as the Samsung UN40F5000, & Im just wondering if TV's that are the same, have different model codes from each other?

The Samsung UA40F5000 is european:

& the Samsung UN40F5000 is american:

Yes they're essentially the same TV.

Samsung's TV models basically mean (where - size - year - model)

Therefore in UA40F5000 vs. UN40F5000 everything (size, shape, year, model, etc.) are the same, they're just made/sold elsewhere.

- UN/UA = Place
- 40 = 40"
- F - 2013 Model
- 5000 - Series/Model Number
