Samsung LN37A550 LCD TV

37" Samsung LCD Television

LCD TV Buying Guide Comments

One step up from Samsung's entry level 450 LCD series is the 550 series. In addition to the features on the 450 series the LN37A550 series has a cleaner design with touch-sensitive manual controls. The side buttons from the 450 series have been eliminated and the 550 series contains 3 HDMI inputs rather than 1. One of these HDMI inputs is side mounted. Like the 450 series the LN37A550 contains Samsung's Super Patterned Vertical Alignment (SPVA). This LCD Television also contains a USB 2.0 port.

Samsung's 550 Series is a perfect  way to step up to Full HD 1080p resolution. A fast 5 ms response rate produces smooth-motion scenes for sports and action movies, and a dynamic contrast ratio of 30,000:1 makes for deep blacks and crisp lines (15,000:1 in 32-inch and 37-inch models).  Superb connectivity and networking  with a USB port and 3 HDMI 1.3 ports with Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) means these HDTVs play well with all of your other electronics. Easily enjoy MPEG and JPEG files stored on external devices by connecting through the side-mounted USB 2.0, turn your LCD into a full-scale home viewing gallery, or connect your MP3 player for a dynamic audio experience.
