Our apologies in advance for some of the following photos. The LN-T4065F has an extremely shiny all-black cabinet which makes for difficult photography but looks great in person. The base of the display is all black as well and both the base and screen cabinet have rounded corners to give it a very smooth sleek look.
The are only 7 input buttons found on the entire display and they are tucked neatly along the top edge of the screen out of plain site. This gives the LN-T4065F clean appearance so when looking at it all you see if the display, no shiny buttons sticking out at you. The buttons that are provided give you basic control over the TV by allowing you to select the input source and the load the display's menu system.
As with many new displays, the back and sides of the LN-T4065F are littered with inputs for all sorts of video input types. The back of the LN-T4065F is pictured above and features 2x Component, 2x HDMI 1.3, 1x S-Video and a PC Analog input for your possible high definition inputs. There is one traditional composite video input for your non-high def devices and two antenna inputs for your television sources (air and cable).
The fun doesn't stop at the back inputs, on the left side (facing the front of it) of the display is the third HDMI input and second S-Video input. There is another composite input for easy switching between devices like a DVD player and gaming console. A unique input shown above is labeled Wiselink and it looks a lot like a USB input. That's because it is a USB input for connecting portable storage devices that contain music or photos for playback on the LN-T4065F. More on Wiselink later in the review.
The remote included with the LN-T4065F provides complete control over the display and is laid out as you would expect with device selection buttons found at the top of the remote followed by the number pad, volume, and channel buttons. Above the volume buttons are four DVD playback buttons: rewind, fast forward, stop, and play/pause. The fast forward and rewind buttons are actually chapter skip buttons and not the rewind/fast forward play buttons you would expect they are. This can be frustrating when using the Anynet technology Samsung devices (such as this display and a DVD player) use to communicate to each other since it lacks full control over playback. More on that later in the review.
Also at the top of the remote is the bright yellow light bulb button that when pressed lights up the TV selection button as well as the volume and channel buttons when the remote is being used in a dark room.
The bottom of the remote has the more specials function buttons like Samsung's Anynet, picture mode, sound mode, caption decoder, Picture-in-Picture, picture size and several others.
