Samsung LN52A850 LCD HDTV Reviewed


Thin is really in with the 52-inch LN52A850 from Samsung. This TV is less than two inches thick, and it sports Auto Motion Plus 120Hz technology and the stylish Touch of Color design. Is it worth your money? Read on to find out...

Auto Motion Plus 120Hz technology effectively reduces motion blur and offers multiple settings to tailor the motion to your liking ; The Ultra Clear Panel's reflective screen does help blacks look darker and create better contrast in a room with some...

The Ultra Clear Panel makes reflected images more visible (even more so than many plasmas), which can be distracting when trying to watcher dark content in a very bright room ; This TV falls at the higher end of the price spectrum for a 52-inch 1080p LCD

The LN52A850 is loaded with most of Samsung's top-of-the-line technologies, features, and design elements. You can find less-expensive 52-inch 120Hz displays, even in Samsung's line; however, if you want a fully loaded, high-performing LCD, this one...

Samsung LN52A850 Review – 52-inch LCD HDTV


This wafer-thin, 52″ panel is full with HD 1080p resolution containing 1920 x 1080 pixels; you can expect the highest video resolution available currently in the HDTV market. The 4ms pixel- super-fast response time brings to you vibrant and realistic...

To top it all, Samsung’s distinctive Touch of Color bezel design adds a new sparkle to your home theater system. Being new to the market, the Samsung LN52A850 is as high priced as it will ever be. Unless you’re a cutting edge HDTV nut or impulse...

Samsung LN52A850


The LN52A850 is the newest high end TV in Samsungs Winter 2008/2009 lineup. One of the key feature differences is the new DLNA compliance certification of this TV over the LN52A750. Another big feature difference is the slim 1.9" cabinet housing. It...

At around $2500 this 52" LCD offers a ton of value. It's got a great feature set and picture and the 1.9" depth is a premium feature. This LCD sells at a nice discount to its Sony competition KDL-52XBR6 and just a slight premium to its own brother the...

Great big HD TV


We recently upgraded out aging Sony 53 inch rear projection TV with this new Samsung unit. What a difference! The frame around the display is a shiny black with a touch of red accent. The unit comes with a nice stand that had a pretty large rectangular...

Color information with HD content is vibrant and accurate


Oversaturate color information but the Samsung LN52A850 displays accurate, realistic colors along with deeply penetrating blacks to produce excellent depth. It's important to note again that the 120Hz (auto motion plus) processing feature needs to be...
