I purchased a samsung 40" lcd (ln40d503) during black friday. Yes, I got snookered into standing in line for a door buster, but when that was gone, this seemed like a great alternative.
I am EXTREMELY pleased with the picture quality. I won't exaggerate and say it's like 'being there' or looking into a window; nonetheless, the picture quality is excellent.
My main qualm with this tv is the lack of connectivity options (by 2011 standards):
1. It's only got 2 hdmi ins, and I really require 3 or 4.
2. It doesn't have audio out for me to hook up speakers directly to the tv.
Here are my options:
If I get the samsung ln40d550 with 4 hdmi, will I also be able to hook up speakers directly to the tv? Thanks.
