Stand/Mount


The rounded stand of the LC-40E67UN does a good job of holding the large panel of the display in place. It is secured by eight screws: four that hold the base together and four that secure it to the panel itself. Fortunately, a hex key is supplied with the display so you don't have to find your own screwdriver.

Remote Control


The remote control that comes with the LC-40E67UN is rather large, but with small, awkward buttons. It can control multiple devices, but the system for switching between them is awkward, limiting the usefulness of this feature.

In The Box*(7.0)*


There are few frills that come with this display: you get a manual, remote control, batteries and a set of screws that hold the stadn in place. And that's it: no cables, cleaning cloths or other extras.

 

Aesthetics*(5.5)*


The LC-40E67UN has the same clean, smart design that we see on most modern HDTVs, with a dark bezel surrounding the screen itself. Unfortunately, it is marred by a couple of problems: the bezel is shiny and shows reflections, and the curve of the bezel makes it somewhat prone to showing reflections from roof lights.
