Samsung LN40D630 Review

40" 1080p LCD TV

Alongside it's LED TV series, Samsung continues to offer traditionally backlit LCD televisions. The D630 series replaces 2010's C630 series. We liked the C650 series a lot when we reviewed it and found it to be a great value with a great picture. The 630 line was the same as the 650 without internet connectivity features. This year the 630 includes WiFi and the new Allshare feature but it still doesn't go online.

Picture and Viewing Features

Samsung's LCD panels look excellent with CCFL backlighting. The off angle viewing isn't as strong as the LED lit models but the traditional backlighting offers smooth, uniform color and brightness and calibrates excellently due to the detailed picture controls.

Internet Applications and Connectivity

Samsung has made the All Share also known as its Smart Search function available on this LCD model series. Users can connect with and search for any programming item, including photos, videos and music on their home network for sharing onto this HDTV LCD. The All Share functionality was one of the most unique services offered at CES for connectivity, and as far as we can see, Samsung is one of only a handful of television manufacturers with this feature.

Standout Features

Built in WiFi, we always like to see connected TVs have this, it's always nice to lose one of the cables behind your TV.

1080p LCD panel, Samsung's LCD televisions have excellent picture quality and continue to impress us.

Priced Competitively: You can save quite a bit of money when you buy a CCFL backlit TV with the same features as an LED.
