2.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Oct 5, 2011

The 4 series, also known as the 450 series, comprise the value-priced line of Samsungs 2008 LCD televisions. For more information refer to the Samsung 4 Series report. Specs 22" screen 1080p native resolution 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio Inputs: 1xHDMI 1.3, 1xComponent, 1xComposite, 1xS-Video, 1xVGA , 1xAudio (minijack), 1xUSB(service only) Outputs: 1xAnalog Audio (L&R), 1xHeadphone, 1xDigital Audio ... PROS: (1) good range of input types available, will work with almost anything (2) picture is very sharp and clear, can see all the details well (3) smaller size unit fits well into tighter spaces (4) SD is upscaled just enough so it doesnt look dramatically poor next to HD ... CONS: (1) tuner misses a few HDTV channels (2) remote only controls the TV, need to use a separate controller for any other playback device (3) colors never get very accurate or realistic even with adjustment (4) not capable of very loud volume output

1 Star Review   By member lm6ryCWU8L - Mar 5, 2010   

Strengths: Good picture

Weakness: Poor quality components

After 18 months the tv would not turn on. Did an online search & discovered that this is a common problem. Since it was out of warranty, I took it apart and discovered a bulging 2200uf 10v capacitor. I bought a replacement with a higher voltage rating and replaced the failed one. Works great again. Common practice for caps is to have a voltage rating that is 2x the input. This cap was the weak link, all the other caps were rated 25v & higher. Input voltage for the power supply is 12 volts. Samsung just lost another customer!

Buyer Beware
1 Star Review   By member timd718 - Oct 27, 2009   

Strengths: Works really well for about a year

Weakness: When the warranty is up it breaks

I have a 26" samsung LCD TV model #LN26a450c1d and after 14 months it quit working. I called Samsung and they told me since it was out of warranty there was nothing they could do. I did a little research and from what i could gather they have had problems in the past with capacitors blowing out.

Problem started just after 1 year
1 Star Review   By member laljose - Jun 14, 2009   

Strengths: Good Picture quality, good options

Weakness: Samsung fails to acknowledge a power issue with their TVs even after many people reporting about it

I bought this TV 1 year ago. (1 year and 2 weeks to be exact). From yesterday, it started turning on and off every 3 to 5 seconds of its own. I called Samsung support and they said that it is just outside the warranty. They say that it is not a common issue. (Search for ‘Samsung TV on and off’ in Google and you will see hundreds of users having the same issue.) I regret that I didn’t read the reviews before I bought this TV.

Good TV
5 Star Review   By member yuan107 - Jun 12, 2008   

Strengths: High contrast ratio, good for small room

Weakness: No

It is a good looking TV when I open the box. The picture quality is very good as well. We use this TV as a computer monitor. It is very good. We did not test the HD programs yet. For the regular channels, the pictures are just ok. It is a very good choice, if you want to buy a TV for your dorm or small bedroom.

Great 26" LCD
4 Star Review   By member cipresso - May 14, 2008   

Strengths: Picture, Piano Black Bezel

Weakness: None so far

This is a great compact LCD TV. The colors seem to jump off the screen. Perfect size for hanging on our kitchen wall. We looked at several LCD's in this size range and felt that for the price, this one was the best.

Outstanding Television / Picture Quality
5 Star Review   By member aeromitch37 - May 11, 2008   

Strengths: -Picture Quality -Television visual appearance -Versatility to use as monitor or television

Weakness: -Response time to change television channels

The LN26A450 television is one of the best purchases I have made in quit some time. The picture quality is flawless with high contrast and amazingly sharp colors over the entire picture. I can't find anything bad to say about the picture at all. The television casing itself is very ascetically pleasing. The outer edges are a shiny piano black and look great. These smooth edges make the bright picture pop out that much more. I would recommend this television to anyone who is looking for high quality for value. Granted one could buy a cheaper 26in television, but not for this type of quality.

Excellent TV
5 Star Review   By CMDC on 6th Ave Electronics - May 7, 2008   

Strengths: Excellent, beautiful and amazing picture and sound.

Just buy it, you won't be disappointed. I use it with an HD antenna and let me tell you that every channel just looks perfect I could even say better than the picture I get through Direct TV.

Great TV
5 Star Review   By member olbartender - May 5, 2008   

Strengths: superb picture, numerous fine tuning adjustments, numerous connection configurations

Weakness: none so far

I believe this model is the updated version of the LN-T2653H which is a great set also. This unit has a few upgrades so do a side by side comparison. The only cosmetic change is moving the speakers from the front firing position at the bottom to where they are located at the bottom also but fire straight down. The move doesn't seem to have any impact on the sound dispersal. This is an excellent lcd tv with a great picture and you can get it at a great price (about $50 less than the LN-T2653)
