Summary: The midlevel Samsung LN46A550 LCD TV strikes an excellent balance between price and performance.
Pros: Accurate color; reproduces relatively deep black levels; extensive picture adjustments include fine color temperature controls; solid connectivity with three HDMI inputs and one PC input; simple, unassuming external appearance.
Cons: Minor uniformity issues; so-so standard-definition processing.
Conclusion: The Samsung LN52A550's matte-finished screen delivers a detailed HD picture, but stumbles in some fast-motion scenes. And color consistency within the darkest picture details is lacking when compared with that of the competition.
Pros: Excellent contrast and HD video processing. Comprehensive picture controls. Backlit remote and swivel stand.
Cons: Displays some smearing in fast-motion scenes. Some advanced picture settings lack fine control. Inconsistent color tracking.
