Samsung B550 ( LE40B550)

CNET
11 November 2009
  • Summary: Despite an apparent lack of picture-processing power, the Samsung LE40B550 manages to produce really excellent images that leave those of all its similarly priced LCD rivals for dead. Movie fans may want to add a separate audio system, but it's still one heck of a TV for the price
  • Pros: Exceptional value for money; really good picture quality; gorgeous design; good connectivity.
  • Cons: Under-powered audio; doesn't offer as many features as most Samsung TVs.

Samsung LE40B550: extrem preiswerter TV

CNET

  • Summary: Ein 40 Zoll großer LED-TV von Samsung kostet rund 1000 Euro. Im Vergleich dazu ist das gleich große LCD-Modell LE40B550 ein echtes Schnäppchen: Er kostet nur etwas mehr als die Hälfte. Wir haben getestet, ob der Fernseher trotzdem überzeugt.
  • Pros: gute Bildqualität, schickes Design, außergewöhnliches Preisleistungsverhältnis, viele Anschlüsse
  • Cons: schwache Lautsprecher, weniger Funktionen als die meisten anderen Samsung-TVs
