Samsung E550 review: Budget TV done in by soft images


Samsung has long been the leader in U.S. TV market share, but the manufacturer is facing some tough competition, especially at the budget end. Lesser-known competitors like Vizio and TCL are coming up with TVs that can challenge the Korean behemoth's...

The Samsung E550 boasts fairly deep black levels and excellent shadow detail. Colors are natural and well saturated. The 40-inch model offers particularly good value.

The TV features fairly low-quality processing, failing all of our tests, and pictures have a softness to them that can't be corrected. The TV isn't a straight replacement of last year's D550 with some functionality like Ethernet cut out. Some cheaper...

The Samsung E550 series LCD is a decent performer with excellent shadow detail and good colors but image softness hampers a hearty recommendation.

Amazing HDTV for a GREAT PRICE!!!


Great picture. Compared it to some LEDs and really couldn\'t tell the difference. This LCD picture and color was much sweeter than the LG 120hz which was the other I was looking at. Just watched 12 hours of divisional playoff football with this Samsung...

Fantastic TV, but not surprised


This picture is great. I wanted to go up to 40" to make it easier to read the cable guides, menus and subtitles. But the bigger picture is phenomonal. Samsung is the best. And I just moved the 32" up to the bedroom. No complaints at all.

Samsung LN40E550 40" LCD HDTV 1080p 60Hz


I just bought this apparently lovely product but had to return it because it lacks any type of audio output. I has neither digital nor analog audio output, not even a headphone jack. There is no way to connect an external sound system to the TV as you...

Samsung LN40E550 40" LCD HDTV 1080p 60Hz


Just got the TV a week ago and everything worked pretty well(so far). The sound on this TV is nice and loud so I don't need to buy a sound bar. The picture quality for HD source is excellent but only VG for non-HD broadcast. The dark color is a bit...
