Samsung LN46B640 46″ 1080p LCD HDTVSep 16th, 2009 | By Simon
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.
