Here is a quick review of one of its most popular LCD models, the Samsung LN40A550 40-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV.

The Samsung LN40A550 40-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV has a improved 30’000:1 contrast ratio, which is pretty high for a LCD TV. It has a wide 178-degree viewing angle and comes with hidden speakers. The hidden speakers produces amazing audio quality through the SRS TruSurround technology. The power of the hidden speakers is best experienced through a Blu-ray player or a DVD player that uses a HDMI cable.

It is pretty easy to hook up the Samsung LN40A550 40-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV with almost any type of electrical appliances imaginable. It comes with 3 HDMI ports as well as a handy USB 2.0 port to connect to your camera or mp3 player. It also has a VGA input to connect to any laptop or computers.

The images produced are just astounding. They were crisp and clear even in a bright room. I have several windows in my living room but there were no traces of any light reflection on the screen even in the bright afternoon light. It also has a new improved, 5ms response time (an upgrade from the previous 8ms on older models). The remote and menu interface are extremely user friendly and easy to use.
