Samsung UN40C5000

$1,199.00 MSRP 40 in.


The Samsung UN40C5000 ($1199 MSRP) is a neat, little package of a TV, with clean lines and a great feel. But the video performance was decidedly mixed, and we feel Samsung cheaped out by offering a LAN port and optional WiFi, but no access to streaming content.
