Samsung PS50B550 review

 

We really like the Samsung PS50B550. It offers excellent picture quality with both high-definition and standard-definition video. The picture is slightly on the soft side, but it's not a huge problem and the image is still very good overall. If you...

Impressive picture quality ; Sound clarity is very good ; Tried and tested technology ; Plenty of inputs

Rose-black styling won't appeal to everyone ; No bass from the built-in speakers ; Unadventurous

In an ever-changing world in which America is cuddly again and England wins at cricket, why should we be surprised that plasma TVs are changing too? This ever-so-modern marvel spurns burn-in and delivers more optical wattage than Jessica Alba’s smile....

Don’t sit too close to the PS50B550: it might not be bad for your eyes any more but you’ll probably notice detail fading away quicker than you’d like on a brand-new telly. You might also see you’ve bought a television with ‘subtle’ rose black detailing...
