Samsung LND550 review: Samsung LND550

 

The inexpensive Samsung LND550 series evinced good performance for an entry-level non-LED-TV, with deep black levels and ample shadow detail. Its screen was quite uniform, and the matte finish is a boon in bright rooms. Its styling is among the best in...

Color accuracy on the LND550 series was worse than most of its entry-level competition. Unlike some 60Hz LCDs we've tested, it didn't handle 1080p/24 cadence properly.

The Samsung LND550's mix of features, style and picture quality stands tall among the tough entry-level LCD TV crowd.

"not reliable product nor service"

 

Don't buy Samsung. Most tv components are manufactured by the same few manufactuerers so buy the one that is less expensive and has better customer service

Good picture quality

Not reliable, not customer oriented, respond to class action lawsuits only and not to individual customer complaints

Great LCD HDTV

 

Samsung's WIS09ABGN2 & WIS10ABGN simultaneous WIFI adapters can be used with a PC. They both use the Ralink RT3572 chipset. The Ralink website has USB drivers and a WIFI utility compatible with Macs, Linux and both 32 and 64 bit Windows systems...

Wonderful picture in all light conditions. Complete input and output set. Plays almost every format thru USB or WIFI. Tunes unscrambled digital HD & SD channels without a cable box

The remote control is well laid out but uncomfortable. Go for a universal remote. WIFI requires a separate adapter which may be a negative but
