Samsung LN46B640 46″ 1080p LCD HDTV

The LN46B640 comes in two pieces; we have the TV screen and the stand. The screen slots into the notched portion of the stand. While the TV is stable with the screen sitting on the notched ends, it not very reassuring as a slight nudge could send the screen toppling over. For reinforcement, two screws are provided. These join the screen to the stand and make the assembly very stable.

Depending on where you position the TV, it is possible that you won’t be looking at it perpendicularly from your usual sitting area. The included stand allows you to rotate the TV 20 degrees in either direction.

To complete the assembly, you need to provide power and input sources. On the back there is a plug for the power cord and unlike some of the older models there is no On/Off switch.

Inputs can be provided at either the back panel or the side access panel. The side panel is limited to two USB ports, a single HDMI and a set of composite cables. The back panel has the remaining HDMI, Audio, Video, PC and Internet ports.

Here’s how it looks with everything connected:

If you happen to lose your remote control, the TV can still be operated until a replacement is found. Discreetly hidden are touch sensitive buttons that allow you to switch between various sources, activate the menu, change the channel and volume or turn off the TV.

The remote hasn’t changed; the look is still the same and the button layout hasn’t budged. The remote still comes with a touch sensitive light button and the enter button is still in the middle of the wheel.

  2. Just hope that more channels could start broadcast in HD. But it’s probably quite expensive to buy all the new equipment needed.

  3. Don’t think we can get the LN46B640 in the UK. This looks like the nearest version to it: http://www.buydigital.tv/Product-show.asp?BigClass_Id=11&SmallClass_Id=300.

  4. Nice review. I just purchased a 640 for the USB. However, mine does not produce sound when playing avi or mp4 from USB. How did you generate the avi file in the first place? Thanks!

  6. Would you happen to know what’s the spece between the bottom of the TV and the stand? I am wondering if the receiver can fit in this space. I bought that TV, it wasn’t delivered yet, but don’t know if the receiver can fit between the TV and the stand. Thanks for a response.

    Off the top of my head I can’t remember but it would only be in the range of 1.5″ or so

  10. hatsukitemo, terftigtewheat:

    You can connect your computer/notebook to the TV with any VGA cable or HDMI cable, depending on what outputs your computer/notebook has. You will also need to connect audio out from your notebook/computer using a 2.5mm to RCA.

    Enjoy!

  12. I purchased a Samsung 640 series TV about 8 monthes ago and it is by far the best TV I’ve ever owned. There is one thing about it that concerns me. Two or three times a week I come home and find the Tv “partially on”. The TV has a blueish grey glow and the back of the cabinet is warm. When I left the house the screen was off and completely black. My concern is that the Tv will wear out prematurely. Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening?
