Samsung E550 TV performs decently

 

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

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

Black Screen

 

Looks like a good tv, if it wasn't defective when it came it.

None yet

Stunning picture

 

Produces a little bit of heat since it isn't LED backlit. but not bad.

Sports, movies, everything looks good on this TV. Its black levels aren't on par with plasma, but are extremely good. 40" is a very good size to get sharp, blur-free sports action, and this TV shines. Backlighting control and fine-tuning capabilities...

None. If it cost $200 more, I might whine a bit about true contrast ratio, but I have to look really hard to notice any shortcoming
