Good image quality

The latest UN26D4003 LED is a slim, charcoal black and high glossy TV. The bezel is normal and the stand is high glossy black. During our test, the 720p LED screen offered great picture quality along with very clear HD images thanks to its LED backlight. Colors were beautiful, with superb hues and tones; this was made possible thanks to a technology called Wide Color Enhancer Plus which uses an advanced algorithm that improves the quality of images and even displays details that other TVs can’t. The screen also comes with a built-in NTSC/ATSC/QAM tuner; its role is to receive unencrypted digital cable signals, digital terrestrial signals and analog cable signals.

Clear Motion Rate (CMR) technology

The Clear Motion Rate – or CMR in short – feature measured the motion performance of this TV by calculating the panel’s refresh rate, the TV’s chipset and the backlight. The higher the CMR, the clearer the quality of pictures will be. This translated into very clear details for this Samsung LED TV.
For our review of the Samsung UN26D4003 we also tested the audio performance and we must say that we were impressed by it. The SRS TruSurround HD and the Digital Noise Filter features offered very good digital sound. With the 5-watt speakers, voices were easy to understand and volume levels were consistent. This TV also supports second audio program (SAP) with 181-channel capacity and multi-channel sound (MTS).

HyperReal Engine

The HyperReal Engine option optimizes images and overall performance of the device, which translates into very clear and radiant Full HD images.
Also, the UN26D4003 TV meets Energy Star standards, meaning that it leaves a smaller carbon footprint and you will pay less for utility costs.
Finally, with the help of the ConnectShare feature we could share photos, music and videos by connecting an MP3 player or a digital camera to the TV.
