Samsung TV Question - Tuners

by flauta_del_angel / September 5, 2008 5:24 PM PDT

I am considering purchasing a Samsung HDTV LN26A450. I have many questions about it. My first question is, Does it contain a QAM tuner? I have read contradictory things on contradictory web pages (including CNET), and the Samsung phone reps also don't know the answer.

Also, does this TV contain an NTSC tuner? Exactly which tuners does it have?

Thank you for your help,

PriceGrabber says the LN-26A450 has NTSC/ATSC/QAM
FYI Buydig sells the LN-32A450 for $86 more if that works for you.
