Once again Samsung has created waves in the High Definition Television (HDTV) industry. This time around with the Samsung LN40A550 model. This 40 inch 1080p LCD HDTV is ultimately a top of the line model. Who says being a top model means having a high price?
Price is one of the waves generated by the LN40A550 model. As a model with advanced features as it is, it certainly is not priced at one. You will surely be hardpressed to find any other 40 inch model priced as this wonder from Samsung. So, if finding the best deal on a 40 inch HDTV has been difficult in the past, then the LN40A550 is your answer.
What do you get with the Samsung LN40A550?
How about an incredibly sharp and realistic TV viewing experience? Yes, that is what you get with a contrast ratio of 30,000 to 1. Did I say incredible? Yes I did. No other model in its range even come close to what this unit has to offer, in terms of realistic viewing. Just be careful if you have pets around. They might easily be fooled by the realism. They might jump at the unit and try to grab that food being displayed on the tube.
Lacking true colors in your tube viewing dailies? No longer will you see faded blue skies on your tele. With the Samsung LN40A550, you get truly brilliant colors. Yes, none of them dull and faded skies. The skies are brilliantly and vividly blue in this Samsung unit. How did they do it? They have this Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp back lights to help them.
One remote to rule them all. Use the Samsung LN40A550 as the main entertainment hub in your home. How about that? Just use any of the four Simplay compliant HDMI 1.3 inputs. There's even one on the side for easy access. Connect any of these:
- Game consoles
- Satelite dish components
- Disc Players
Once connected, you can then use the LN40A550's remote control and content management interface to access the device and its contents. Yes, rule them all. Rule wisely.
Of course, it can't be all dandy and wonderful. I do believe in the saying "If it's too good to be true, then it's not true". Is that how the saying goes? You get what I mean, don't you?
Anyway, there is this minor issue with the Samsung LN40A550. If you are the type that uses USB to connect external devices into this unit, you will find that the USB Wiselink is somewhat limited. You can only use the USB Wiselink to view a slideshow of pictures. That's it. You can't run movies on it. You play music on it. Just Slideshows. Not very intuitive of them in this respect, I'd say.
All in all, I'd say that the Samsung LN40A550 HDTV unit is really worth the price you pay for it. Again, price is also among its main attraction.
