Expert review by : What Hi-Fi? (whathifi.com)

Samsung LE37B550 review

 

At this kind of price, this Samsung represents staggeringly good value. Couple that with great performance and you've got a winning television

Full HD ; superb black levels ; clean tuner ; brilliant all-round picture quality

Poor sound

Delivering top-notch pictures at a rock-bottom price, this set will take some beating for value

Samsung LE37B550 review

 

For the money, this Samsung represents staggeringly good value. But does it have the performance to make it a 37in must-have?

Delivering top-notch pictures for a rock-bottom price, this 37in set will take some beating for value

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great tv for the price!!!!!

 

im not sure what the HZ is but im guessing its rated at 120hz but the picture is still terrific!

This is an amazingly great tv!!!! The image is sharp even from a few feet away! I have it in my bedroom with a ps3 hooked up to it as well. It has a good amount of ports for devices and setup was great!!!! I have basic cable and as soon as i hooked it...

ToC is bland. Hopefully, it is not your reason for getting this tv. I dont notice the red whether there is a lot of lght in my room or no light

Great Television

 

The current price is very good

This is a very good television. I ordered two on them and both came in with great instructions, easy to set up, and all the pixels on both worked fine. The auto search for channels found all the HD stations on my standard comcast cable fine. See little...

Non so far

Beautiful TV, Great Stand

 

I had the LN40A530 previously and this is a great addition to the family. The touch of color its a very attractive visual aspect of the set. The colors are great and the remote is very responsive. I got some interference over component but I switched...

The only con I can see is that the touch sensitive buttons on the front are hard to use. That doesn't really matter though since I use the remote

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Awesome!

 

This is the first HDTV that I have purchased and I cannot recommend it enough. The speakers are sufficient enough so I don't feel the need to drop an egg on the rating.

Easy setup, multitude of inputs/outputs, sleek design, excellent picture, works great with my xbox 360 and playing 1080p videos from my laptop. The price is right

The speakers could be a bit better, but I plan on getting a separate system eventually so it won't matter

Samsung LN37B550

 

This is a great product! 37 inches was perfect for my living room which measures 16 x 10. Picture clarity in HD is outstanding. Would highly recommend at the pricepoint I paid - $714.

good stuff!

 

Very pleased with it. Great picture and clarity. Sound quailty is good but not great. Buttons on front are touch activated but difficult to see. Excelent for gaming when you get everything set up correctly.

What Cosmetic Scratches?

 

I recently purchased this t.v. from the scratch and dent section and when I received the t.v. I couldn't even find the so called scratches and I saved a load of money. I have been using Amazon to shop for years and will continue to do so, especially...
