It was totally lame for Samsung to use a fan...
I am on record as agreeing with the lameness of the fan, but I just love the compactness of the 40" model and the Big River price, so...
Some people earlier suggested that you can turn off the fan in the settings.
Any of you 40" owners out there:
Can you confirm with 1003.M that you can TURN OFF the fan, and if so, have you noticed any problems after turning off the fan that might suggest overheating?
If the fan is truly inaudible when new, how can one tell if you turn it off in the software that it is actually off, or is its inaudibility just a sign that it is in fact off to begin with?
